Activists in Palestine and other Arab countries launched the hashtag “Delete Your Enemy” as part of a campaign to unfollow the official Israeli Arabic-speaking accounts and stop interacting with them.
The eighth bulletin, “Nasratkoum” (31/5/2021), continued the interactions with this hashtag, as this campaign aims to limit the spread of the Israeli novel, albeit indirectly through interaction with it.
Activists who participated in the tag confirmed that the official Israeli accounts that speak Arabic aim to influence Arab public opinion through communication platforms.
Among the interactions that were monitored with the hashtag “Delete your enemy,” Palestinian writer Radwan al-Akhras said, “The issue is very important and there is no need for complacency. Your follow-up to the accounts of the occupiers increases their presence on the communication platforms, they deliberately provoke, spread nonsense or clowning, ignoring their absurdities will enrage them.”
For his part, activist Yasser Ashour wrote, “# Delete your enemy because it is simply his goal that justifies you for what you must kill so that he can live.”
Arafat Al-Hajj wrote in a tweet, “Tdeloush, explain, discuss, it’s not your job, this is your enemy and his goal is to bring you down, kill you, or use you to reach other of your family and our Arab people.”
As for the activist Dina Al-Azza, she said, “There is no convincing goal of following us as Arabs to the pages of Israel in Arabic or Avichai Adrai, for example. These accounts and pages are achieving successes in increasing the interaction and widening their spread among the Arab public in the virtual world after they were ungrateful.”
