The Hasbra Fellowship, a pro-Israel campus activism organization, recently posted a video describing the Arab-Israeli conflict taking place within a social network.

The video features a rundown of Israeli history; starting with Israel joining the social network and the UN. Then Israel precedes to “friend request” its neighbors, who do not respond. Only once Israel sends gifts do Egypt and Jordan do they accept Israel’s outstretched hand.

Israel’s repeated “friend requests” to the Palestinians are answered with suicide bombers and rockets. The video doesn’t mention the occupation, roadblocks, arrests, or any other activity that would reflect negatively on Israel.
