Gaza Debate Goes Virtual
Submitted by Basheer on Tue, 11/03/2009 - 12:16
Ian Lamont writes "The war of words over the conflict in Gaza has moved from the real world to the Internet. Besides a furious stream of mini-debates on Twitter between supporters of and critics of Israel's military actions, there have also been demonstrations in Second Life at an Israel-themed sim and a collection of Facebook applications,
including 'QassamCount' and 'Stop Israel's war crimes in Gaza.' Another
project — 'mapping the war in Gaza' — was launched by Al Jazeera and
takes user-submitted reports, tweets, and Microsoft Virtual Earth to track the number of casualties and other developments."
In addition to this, the series of website defacements we discussed a few days ago has now extended to sites controlled by NATO and the US Army.
