Israeli military and Hamas exchange threats on Twitter

November 14, 2012

Not encouraging:

 

That first tweet is from the Israeli Defense Forces' official account, which has been, trumpeting its air strikes into the Gaza Strip by, among other things, posting a flier of Hamas military leader Ahmed Jabari with the word "ELIMINATED" stamped over his face. The second is from the Al-Qassam Brigades, which is the military wing of Gaza-based Hamas. The flier is below.

Neither account is known for circumspection or understatement, but this exchange, and the tough talk on both of these official feeds, does not suggest its spokespeople are emphasizing peace at the moment.
