Sometimes you read something, and you have to read it again, because you can’t believe how stupid some people really are.
Let’s take the Israeli Foreign Ministry for example.
Here’s a group that really, really, doesn’t understand the internet and social networks.
First, they decide officially tackle the anti-Semitism on facebook by convincing pro-Israel people to start pro-Israel groups and other activities.
Talk about being late to the game.
Hell, there’s one guy on facebook named Ashley Perry who is like an Army-of-One when it comes to that and he certainly didn’t need FM approval or urging to tackle this whale.
And there are plenty of others who beat the Foreign Ministry to the gate.
Meanwhile, while the Foreign Ministry is so busy patting itself on the back that they had themselves another brain-spasm.
Hold on to your chairs.
The Foreign Ministry decided to invite the most influential Israel-bashing bloggers around to a free, all-expenses paid trip to Israel.
Because if these people couldn’t find enough stuff to write about, make up, or just spew against Israel, they can now write that Israel tried to officially “bribe” them to see another side of things.
Let me ask you, do you think the idiots in the Foreign Ministry think that blogs are like newspapers and need to be balanced? Do they really think that these bloggers write their remarks out of ignorance? Do they think that flying over Sderot in a helicopter will actually change their perspective?
How stupid are they over there?
I remember once when Arafat and Peres were on TV, Peres starts his idiotic peace ramblings, and Arafat (as always) suddenly made outrageous claims against Israel. Peres stood there flabbergasted, unable to even muster a response (much less say that Arafat was lying).
Remember that, because the Foreign Ministry’s tour also includes meeting our “Peace Partners” (such as enemy negotiator Saeb Erekat) who surely want to correct how these blogger are portraying Israel in their blogs.
10 parts of stupidity were handed down. We know who got them all.
(I heard the Foreign Ministry plans to invite ISM members on free trips to the Rachel Corrie Pancake Memorial tour, to help "open their minds" too).
