Jerusalem Terror Attack Glorified On Arabic-Language Social Media

  • January 10, 2017

Four young Israeli cadets were killed and fifteen others wounded in Jerusalem on Sunday when a Palestinian terrorist drove his truck into a group of Israeli soldiers. As with previous truck rammings, this heinous attack was glorified on Arabic-language social media, notably under the hashtag “the Intifada truck”, with cartoons circulating on social media celebrating the soldiers’ murder and mocking those who fled to safety.

Examples of cartoons posted on Twitter include:
