Since the beginning of the operation two weeks ago, Israelis have been upload- ing Facebook wall posts and tweets to show that even the violence is a laughing matter. One Israeli created a fake Facebook account for slain Hamas leader Ahmed Jabari and made his status read "in a relationship" with "72 virgins." Another made an Israeli-Palestinian version of the popular mobile game Angry Birds. In a fake public service ad, the people of Tel Aviv were asked to drinkonly short espresso in order to '.'respond faster to the next air raid siren." Not everything was done for laughs, of course. On the popular website BuzzFeed, Instagram photos showed Israeli soldiers preparing for a possible operation in Gaza, and the IDF spokes- person posted eye-catching graphics on Facebook of how thousands of rockets are fired from Gaza into Israel every day. Israelis posted the same graphic but switched it to show how thousands of pro- Israel images are overpopu- lating everyone's Facebook newsfeed. Kim and Bar get in hot Twitter water While social media has become part of the war, two popular users found them- selves in the middle of it for similar reasons. Reality star Kim Kardashian tweeted that she prays for the people of Israel, enraging her pro- Palestinian followers who wished her things that should probably not be written in a family publication. Kardashi- an immediately responded by tweeting that she prays for both sides and everyone in theworld. That didn't change much and eventually she deleted both tweets. Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli received plenty of heat from her Israeli follow- ers after tweeting that she Iran Facebook/Gigi Arad Characters from the popular mobile game Angry Birds are placed on the Israeli Iron Dome missile defense system in .a parody graphic made by an Israeli blogger. is "praying for the safety of "I am the worst journalist Stone, the dude can dance. citizens on both sides."
