A Facebook call for a third intifada

Recently I mentioned that the Ma'an newspaper was taking tiny Facebook campaigns with fewer than a couple of hundred people and it was trying to make them sound much bigger and impressive. Ma'an is evidently trying to position Palestinian Arabs as being innovative in non-violent protests against Israel.

But there is another Facebook campaign that Ma'an has ignored...perhaps because it is not quite as non-violent as Ma'an prefers. Too bad, because this campaign already has over 44,000 members, and is adding them at a rate of a thousand an hour.

This campaign is to start a new intifada against Israel.

Sounds just like Martin Luther King, doesn't it?
