Time to count qassams
How many nations of the world would accept being attacked by tens of rockets?
How many would accept being attacked with one?
During Operation Cast Lead one of most successful Internet weapons was the Qassam Count Facebook application. Israel advocates would donate their wall and each time a rocket or mortar shell landed on Israel it would be recorded and, of course, shared with FB friends. Documenting the hundreds of qassams – each one a separate war crime, landing on Israels villages, kibbutzim, moshavim and towns refuted the allegation that Israel’s response was disproportionate.
The application hasn’t returned. As soon as I know about it, so will you. However you can still keep track.
