Thousands of Israeli and Palestinian Arabs have added the tagline ‘Death to the Jews’ to their Facebook profiles, Israel’s 0404 News reported on Thursday. 

Facebook has been “flooded” with the murderous phrase, written in Hebrew, 0404 said.

An initial inquiry by the website found over 300 profiles of Israeli residents, “from Jerusalem all the way to the towns up north,” bearing the hateful tagline on their pages.

In response, some Israelis posted, “Death to the Arabs” on their profiles, 0404 said. The site suggested that pro-Israel users instead use the phrase “Am Yisrael Chai” (“the nation of Israel lives”) as a less hateful alternative.

“This would be the best response towards these who want to destroy us,” said the report. The website also encouraged Facebook users to take screenshots of pages carrying the phrase “Death to the Jews” and report them to the police.

A day before the report emerged, a different encounter between Jews and Arabs occurred in Israel’s capital city. Activists from both sides launched a collective fast on the anniversary of the launch of Operation Protective Edge last summer, calling for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

The fast, organized by a group called “Women Wage Peace,” will be held for 50 days, the length of Operation Protective Edge, outside of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s residence in Jerusalem.

The group said its goal is to coax the Israeli government to, “take the initiative and finally propose an alternative to the incessant cycle of wars,” said Marie-Lyne Smadja, the group’s founder.

Amal Abu Rihan Ramadan, an Arabic teacher in Jaffa, the mixed Arab-Jewish suburb of Tel Aviv, expressed a similar hope, calling for an end to “hate and fear.”

    For those Israeli Arabs posting Death to Israel and to Jews a traitorous message, I would suggest that they take their persons where their sympathy lies and migrate to the Palestinian territories where their message is welcome

  • Throw these idiots out of Israel. We do not need these evil speaking arabs in a jewish state. I am sure there are peaceful arabs in Israel who also do not like what these nut cases are doing.

  • Carol

    Better yet — dump facebook! There are alternatives for those who think it’s important to be a part of the “social media” scene.

  • Silky Pitterman

    Perhaps they can also have a sit-in by President Abbas’ office also wanting peace. OH! I forgot! Palestinians aren’t expected to give anything and they would be arrested or worse if they demonstrated in front of Abbas’ office.

  • Peacema

    If we want peace, we need to let prime Minister Netanyahu do his job and take over the Palestinians. Go to Hamas and Iran and places like that to tell them and protest against their actions so that they stop fighting.

  • Richard

    As Israel is a Jewish state this presumably could be considered as treason – the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill or overthrow the sovereign or government.

  • Dave

    Time to start using Fb to get all those addresses, personal information any way the Israeli government can, and start deporting people.

  • josefa schmidt

    Sent them to live with hamas or abbas Israel has enough enemies to cope with. Israel Bless your God. Shalom from Australia

  • noanoa

    Death to the palestinians !!!

    Israel should deport the palestinians to Syria. Where opportunities abound.
    Cheap real estate, lots of violence, a palestinian UTOPIA !!!!!

    “The group said its goal is to coax the Israeli government to, “take the initiative and finally propose an alternative to the incessant cycle of wars,” said Marie-Lyne Smadja, the group’s founder.”

    Doesn’t anyone remember the initiative taken by Israel ten years ago when they removed all the Jewish inhabitants of Gaza and left their homes and green-houses for the use of the arabs?

    All that happened with that initaitive was that the arabs destroyed the structures and used the land as a launching area for rockets into Israel.

  • isaac Brajtman

    If they were Australian, we would cancel their citizenship, and export them to “where they came from”
    Why not do the same ?

    • gil

      beacuse then the hipocrate world will say “ho no…”

  • any one using such words,is looking for trouble from Israel God.i encourage you who is using such words to read the bible,Israel is here to stay.the Torah Israel will wipe you out.

  • Brenda CLAVELOUX

    I tried to add a tagline of Am Yisrael Chai to my profile and it won’t accept it. It keeps telling me, no parentheses and too long a name etc…

    • Diana

      You can choose it in the settings as a second name and then choose display on top, that way facebook will add it as a seperate line, right below your real name

  • Mark Ira Kaufman

    This sort of thing might have upset me sometime ago. But now I see it as par for the course.

    However, it would be wise for all the Muslims who wish death to us Jews to understand that they are dealing with post-Holocaust Jews, whose Jewish self-identities have been heat-tempered by the flames of the Shoah.

    By that, I mean that such rhetoric no longer freaks us out. We will simply do what we must do, what we did not do when Jew-haters uttered such things before the Holocaust.

    In other words, it’s God’s job to judge such Muslims, and my job as a Jew to help arrange the meeting.

    • Terry Huffman

      Well spoken Sir. Best wishes.

  • Eli Roni

    Well well when it comes to take an advantages of the Social Welfare of the Israeli system they never complained about it!!!
    When it comes to the children allowance from the Social Security Service they are fine with it, which allow them to make children and get paid for it without working!!!
    When it comes to the travel with Israeli passport to so many countries in the world without visa they are pleased.
    When it comes to enjoy the benefits of Israeli KNOW-HOW they are using it without saying the words about it.

    • That’s my outlook on immigrants in my country! Well said Roni!

  • Linda Cutler

    WHAT? Throw the bums out! Anyone who posts Death To The Jews on their FB page while being protected by Israel should be taken directly to their Palestinian brothers and dropped off. What’s going on, do they think this is America where our traitorous government is allowing any criminal at all walk in to our country freely through our “no boarders’? Israel CANNOT fall! God Bless Israe! I ❤️ #Netanyahu!

  • Roni Stoker

    What’s new? The Arbas are waking up with the wish “death to the Jews” and with the same wish they go to bed. It is not impressive and not interesting anymore…I mean as long the Jews are strong enough to answer them on an adequate manner (through a barrel of a gun)

  • Steve Loeb

    Hang on … how is “Am Yisrael chai!” hateful or even comparable with “Death to the Jews” ???

    Sounds like another attempt to pervert, distort and remove language that helps unify us agains the haters.

    Don’t fall for it.

    • Craig

      Am Yisrael chai!is Dom’s post it is not what the muslims are putting on their page… read before spouting

    • Robin Bass

      No…that was in response to some Jews who were posting ‘Death to Arabs’ on their pages…Am Yisrael Chai was suggested as the NON hateful way to respond

    • Catrina Farkash Wieder

      Absolutely right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Stan

    “The group said its goal is to coax the Israeli government to, “take the initiative and finally propose an alternative to the incessant cycle of wars,”

    This is nonsense. The alternative to a cycle of war is in the Palestinian’s hands not the Israeli government’s. It is actually quite simple, don’t fire rockets, don’t kidnap and kill our children, don’t launch terrorist strikes, and there will be no war.

  • E Pluribus Wombat

    How many were paid to do it by EU NGOs and the US State Dept?

    Israeli Arab are being protected by Jews blood from other Arab gangs out there. Maybe it’s time you’ll join Isis gang you hypocrite citizens. Israel for those who seek the true.

    • jimmiec

      Odd. Have you noticed there are no Israel-ITE Arabs in the Pure Nation of God’s Chosen, white Israelite, of Jacob. Israel?

      • honeybee

        Really? Did you miss the Moroccan Jews, Yemeni Jews, Ethiopian Jews, and so many more that make up the extraordinary diversity and racial/ethnic plurality of Israel? Did you know that more than 20% of Israeli citizens are Arabs not Jews? That Arabs (including Muslims) serve in the Knesset (parliament)?
        Keep spouting your lies and we’ll pretend it’s ignorance rather than genocidal antisemitic hate propaganda.

  • Grace

    Shelly, you have said it all “the nation of israel lives”, so the world lives. there is no world without jews my dear.

  • Lauren Goldman

    Identify those Israeli citizens who are posting “Death to Jews” put them on the next garbage trucks to Israel’s borders and expel them. If they are ever caught inside Israel, make prison their permanent address.

  • The industry of hate and incitement against the Jews started way back from the days of Muhammad and the creation of the Koran.

    We can just look around the ME and see how this hate fest is blowing back right in the faces of these hate mongers.

    Millions of Muslims are being slaughtered by other Muslims just because of this kind of hate and incitement.

    What goes around comes around.

    We shall overcome someday.

  • Mickey Oberman

    Where can I read the 27 comments?

    • Terry Huffman

      You must be thinking of the 72 virgins. They post somewhere else. I think it is a closed group. 🙂

  • Paul

    We should reply with DEATH TO DEATH-MONGERS. This is the appropriate and just response.

    The passive response adopted by moral, cultured people is not sufficient when encountering primitive hate-mongers. It only works against people who are not too primitive. Ghandi shamed the British into submission by appealing to their decency. It would not have worked against a nation without decency.
    The human liberties given to everyone by default in western democratic countries is continuously abused by people who do not share these values, and who cynically use the privileges given by these democracies to hit at the heart of these democracies.
    These guys post DEATH TO JEWS, and ISIS posts DEATH TO (ALL) INFIDELS – which includes EVERYBODY except their brand of Islam. They are basically the same pathetic, hate-ridden sick people, who justify their thoughts and actions by the teachings of a sick religion and culture. They share the values of hate-mongering and xenophobia, and they are enabled when the good guys show tacit acceptance or passive response.
    Israel came into being as the place where the Jews FINALLY abandoned passive, bleating acceptance of the outrages of hate-mongers. Realizing that NOBODY ELSE was going to fix things for us (since almost everybody else shared this jew-hatred to some degree) we finally established the Jewish state, where we stood up to fight back.
    It takes very little courage to post DEATH TO JEWS. The very first response should be, to get them banned from facebook. We should try make it much less simple and more costly for hate-mongers to flaunt their hatred, or to exercise it with impunity. We have the example of ISIS achieving great success – except where determined people stand up and fight back. We should fight fire with fire. Passive resistance to fire does not stop it.

  • Isaac Semaya

    If they really want a country then they should move to IRAN.
    Death threats are what you find on the comic book pages. They only thing to say is “STUPID IS WHAT SAYS” By the way Palestinians you came on this earth through Mohammad in the 700’s. We Jews “HAVE BEEN ON THIS EARTH FOR MORE THAN 4000 YEARS. WE WILL BE HERE AFTER YOU YOU ARE GONE” So continue to say what you want. Genie will grant your wish for you can now say, by by to the world. YOU SEE WHEN YOU WISH EVIL ON SOME ONE, THAT EVIL HAPPENS TO YOU”!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Who would wanna live with people like this ? Is everything in Arab mentality about death ?
    I’m pretty sure majority of Muslims don’t act this way .but there is a large number of them has racism down to the core.




    It’s a death threat as well as hate speech. Most jurisdictions provide for the criminal prosecution of those who make death threats. Hate speech and anti-Semitic speech is prosecutable in EU and other places. ADL and facebook should make sure these miscreants are referred to their national prosecution authorities or police.

  • Avigayil

    How do 300 people equate to “thousands”? Fact check!

  • Fritz Kohlhaas

    Kick them out of Israel! Let them find out what it means to live under Hamas!

  • Wake-up world to the real Muslim mission of domination.

    Israel has no choice but to continue to fight for its survival with a unified people and a unified nation.

    I have long said, this is not about land, but extermination of a nation, religion and culture which is not accepted by another. I have actually asked the question, what if there was no ‘holy land’. Say a natural disaster, dissolving the place into nothing, but not the people. Would the Arabs still fight? Well, the answer was chilling and emphatic, it saddened me greatly. The answer was over and over, “we have the right to kill all non believers”.
    I have read and re-read everything, from both sides, also, many non-biased writings.

    I have come to the conclusion that Israel must protect herself in every way possible or face genocide. The Arab countries have expelled over a million Jewish families and their children, confiscated all their assets, businesses, homes and Real estate property totaling over 120,440 sq. km. or 75,000 sq. miles (which is 5-6 times the size of Israel) and valued in the trillions of dollars.
    Those in power in the Arab-Palestinian leadership have rejected again and again any and all attempts to recognize Israel’s right to exist. They continue to teach their children and the masses hate and violence.

    Don’t start with who was there first, even-though in actuality there has never been in history an Arab-Palestinian Nation, but there has been a Jewish Nation homeland in Palestine-Israel for the past 3,500 plus years, although sometimes occupied by various empires. Israel has won and liberated their ancestral land in a defensive war, it is known that possession is nine tenths of the law. Israel is the rightful liberator and successor, having won and liberated its ancestral homeland in war, numerous times. Sadly, it will continue, because when one Arab culture wants another’s elimination, there is no talking.

    I hope Israel does not concede to any of the Arab demands, or give up any more land, because they will only make themselves more vulnerable and endanger the safety and security of its citizens, as past experience has proved. Israel must not capitulate to world pressure. Israel’s foremost duty and obligation is the safety and security of its citizens at all costs. Any responsible democratic country will do no less. Israel as a responsible democratic country must do the same. Ignoring, minimizing and deluding yourself that the Arab violence will go away, it will only exacerbate the problem. Taking extreme action to protect its people is the only response. The end result will be that the world at large will respect a country that defends its people from terrorism and harm at all cost.
    The Muslim mission in the world is not only Israel but the rest of the infidel non-believers. Might I remind you, on 911, there were Arab terrorists who wished our extermination, right here in America. This will continue until education and humanity replaces a hatred, for no other reason, than to not accept that you exist.
    The Muslims have killed over 250 million people since its inception 1500 years ago, and they will continue to kill anyone who they consider is an infidel, they even kill their own people. They have colonized the Middle East over the years. Slowly but surely they are taking over Europe and other countries, and if we are not careful they will take over the United States and other countries. They will enforce their Sharia laws.

    P.S. The Jewish peoples war of survival was not won when Hitler lost. It continues to this day, against enemies with far more effective tools of mass murder at their disposal. Plus we are easy to find now.

    Fighting terrorism is not unlike fighting a deadly cancer. It can not be treated just where it is visible – every diseased cell in the body must be destroyed.

  • Shelly

    And where is facebook about this racism/antisemitism? For shame!!!
    This language should be banned, including any language like “death to arabs.” Not acceptable and below Jews to stoop to the lowly language of these racists.

    Am Yisrael chai!

    • Kerry M Berger

      I agree with you 100%. But when I have reported such hatred and anti-semitism, I usually receive a response from FB Administration that the posting did not violate their guidelines. On one occasion I actually countered with the actual statement made by the offending person and exactly what the Administration Guidelines stated and they agreed to remove the offending remark and ban the person from posting for 24 hours. That was it. Since then, it becomes a lot more difficult to report such racist and hateful remarks and so the numbers of Arab anti-semitism continues to escalate. Strange that Zuckerberg is only interested in making money and not of fairness and compliance with the FB Guidelines. He doesn’t give a damn.

    • David Feld

      Go find them , it should be pretty easy, and deport them to Gaza. They’ll love it.

    • Paul

      Right on !!!
      How does one get facebook to take down such offenders ? I do not believe facebook allows such use of their service.

    • Mickey Oberman

      Facebook that privacy destroying “Will you be my friend” scourge along with all other (anti) social media continues to allow hate mongers voices to spread their filthy messages.

      But it denies non members their freedom to speak out in letters of response to the hate it allows to be spread world wide.

      That is why I adamantly refuse to join any of them.
      Hopefully it/they will get its/their comeuppance in the very near future.

    • Loel Mckinnon

      Knowing how well I know Jews, I am sure very very few would put something hateful on public nor would even think such. They are much more concerned with their own family survival

    • Ran

      Let them post what they want. Let them express themselves and be open about it and see it doesn’t help. Banning them just makes them invisible, frustrates them, and hides the truth of their hatred.

      The important thing is not to be upset, not to let their hatred turn you from a life of love. That’s when they win.

      They’re real, if primitive. Let them be.

  • Zg

    As long as these misguided fools only protest in front of the Jewish leadership but not in front of the Pals leadership as well, they will remain

  • Shelly

    This is not anti-zionism. This is racist antisemitism. If you replace “Death to the Jews” with “Death to the Buddhists” or “Death to the Catholics” or “Death to the Kenyans or the Japanes” what would these words mean other than menacing hate based in evil? This is a macabre, pure Nazi statement that these people gladly jump on the moronic mob mentality that they embrace. This brings only promises of chaos and fear and not respect and evolution of a problem toward a solution.

    Even if the world destroys the Jews, the impact we have made in science, technology, law, philosophy and ever corner of higher learning and progressive humanity will always be a reminder of what we did and accomplished, unlike any other group…ever. Non-Jews will always wonder how we did all that we did being such a minute itty-bitty population of souls. We have been successful because we would never allow these words or feelings of hate in our children. Our children come first, we raise them with love, our women hold the souls of our children and we educate them. We lift ourselves up by hard work, not by taking down others. The world forced us to raise up modern Israel to survive, the world forced us with its hate for us.

    Remember, when the Jews and minorities were forced out of or killed in Arab and Islamic lands (almost one million left), those countries never recovered from the loss. Differences in humans are what make us stronger. It was what George Washington said to the American people, that differences are what make us stronger. Israel is the America of Jews.

    Israel was not made by Jews. It was forced upon Jews, but the desert has been made to bloom and the innovations just keep coming. And now what were sheep to the slaughter has morphed into military might.

    Am Yisrael Chai! Hate begets hate: with all the Jews gone, those anti-semitic behaviors would need to feed the hate and turn on each other, as seen historically.

    Try love and understanding and embrace differences, it’s all beautiful, and you will find true success. It will be hard to change the narrative, but go ahead, accept the challenge to heal instead of hate…
    …you may finally see some success like the JEWS and forego your jealousy!

    • Ken

      Shelley, you have captured the reality of what the world, especially the Islamist, are trying to do. I used to say, I had difficulty believing in a just and caring God, mainly because 6.5 million of us were slaughtered by the Nazi’s! I’ve modified that to say, “Imagine a world with 6 million more Jews in it. The level of invention in the sciences and medicine we see in Israel is unparalleled in the world. What wonders would have come from those missing minds to the help and care for the people of the world”. Coming to this conclusion because I’ve ceased to believe in the supreme deity in no way reduces my belief in the value of religion, especially Judaism. Without these precepts man would have lost our moral compass and compassion that so many have shown, especially the Israeli’s.

    • Well said Shelly. Very nice. I can feel your passion for your family,your country, and your people. Israel will never be destroyed and She belongs to the Jewish people. Although I’m not a Jew, I stand in solidarity with you. Am Yisrael Chai! God bless!

    • Theodore L. Crawford

      Israel’s strength is the One Who Created Her.

  • It is disgusting and at the same time sad that palestinians and arabs post such remarks “death to the jews” – These remarks are made by mentally blind personages that are “living within Israeli territory”.
    Obviously they work in Israel, unless they perceive a rent from somewhere else. – I agree with “Am Yisrael Chai” (“the nation of Israel lives”)
    To paraphrase a US Confederate* phrase with these Arabs and palestinians: “If you don´t love Israel,get your ass out”.

  • Rosa Lopes

    Stop your rants against God chosen people least you be severely punished by God the Father.Israel is the land of God chosen people and anyone who dare to threaten or cause harm to them will have God wrath upon them!

  • David Goshen

    When one reads of such hate statements one realises that King Abdullah I of Jordan was most probably right when he tried to persuade the leaders of the Yeshuv that the only way that there would be peace between the Arab State and the Jewish State was if ALL arabs lived in a state ruled by him and all Jews lived in a Jewish State.He was certainly right!
    When one considers the long difficult process
    Arabs in Israel are much better off in Israel than in any Muslim State but their prosperity does not convince them of
    their good fortune.
    Sadly such outbursts will only increase the Israeli pressure to detach large sections of Arab population and hand them over to the PA.This is Lieberman’s plan and will
    help to reduce drastically the percentage of Arabs under Israeli Rule.
    Pity the leaders of the Yeshud did not listen to King Abdullah I of Jordan!

  • Lyone

    To coax the Israeli government to propose an alternative!!! WWP better take a good hard look at history. It is not the Israeli government that needs coaxing. Who is shelling and bombing who on a weekly basis? Israelis like the WWP need to wake up and recognize who the war mongers in this whole story are. The Israeli government keeps making peace offers that get rejected. What is the alternative when the other side keeps saying, “No. I just want you all to die!”

  • Larry Darrow

    arabs are the lowest of the low. They are mostly inbred savages whose tiny minds are filled with hatred and jealousy of Jews who they know deep down are a more intelligent and civilized people. They can’t abide this; ergo their hatred.

  • Mickey Oberman

    ” “Am Yisrael Chai” (“the nation of Israel lives”) as a less hateful alternative.
    “This would be the best response towards these who want to destroy us,” said the report. ”

    The best response would be to round up those traitors, remove their citizenship and ship them out of the country.

  • “The fast, organized by a group called “Women Wage Peace,” will be held for 50 days, the length of Operation Protective Edge, outside of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s residence in Jerusalem.”

    Is this a sneaky way to introduce “Ramadan” into Jewish society?

    “The group said its goal is to coax the Israeli government to, “take the initiative and finally propose an alternative to the incessant cycle of wars,” said Marie-Lyne Smadja, the group’s founder.”

    What “initiative”? Laying down and take the rockets and the explicit promise in the Hamas Charter and Palestinian (Arab) TV to kill every Jew?

  • duPont

    The hatred these Arabs espouse and with which they live is a waste of life. Better to be loving and productive in the ways of humanitarianism. Mohammad himself would not have suggested this behavior. What will it take for the Arabs to become a part of the respectful, peace loving peoples of the world?
