The Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) is a private, independent, non-violent protest organization representing a collective of activists. We have operated under the name the “Jewish Internet Defense Force” since the massacre at the Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva in Jerusalem.We provide cutting edge pro-Israel advocacy, presenting constant news and information through email, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Myspace, Digg, and other popular areas of the web to those who share concerns about antisemitic online content, as well as content which promotes Islamic terrorism.
We believe in direct action both to eradicate the problems we face online and to create the publicity that will cause those with companies like Facebook and Google to take the needed action themselves.
We work to bring together different individuals and represent a younger generation of Jewish leaders, a new approach, and a real grassroots effort for change!
The founder of the JIDF, David Appletree, recently spoke at the WUJS Congress 2009: “Unlocking our Future”, alongside the IDF Spokesperson department. The WUJS represents 1.5 million Jewish students, worldwide. The conference was sponsored by the World Jewish Congress, World Zionist Organization, Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Israeli Knesset, and others.
JIDF has a page urging their supporters to downvote everything anti-Israel on Reddit:
