The official social media accounts of the Israeli government have been posting their way though the current spate of violence with an unnerving level of smol bean energy.

At a time when over 200 Palestinian civilians and 10 Israeli civilians have been killed, it’s a weird look for Israel’s official social media accounts to be asking for sympathy like an angsty 13-year-old on Tumblr.

It’s also weird that a country with one of the most powerful militaries in the world is personifying itself as scared and exhausted.

That’s not to mention the fact that the official Israeli Twitter account started spamming the timeline with rocket emojis.

Ultimately, the account said it was one emoji for every rocket fired by Hamas, but that meaning feels a little bit lost amid what feels like a blind and aggressive display of patriotism by a country accused of committing alleged war crimes using – you guessed it – rockets.

This shit just goes on, and on, and on.

The Israel Dense Forces also got in on the cursed Twitter posts.

I feel like these sirens are telling me to check my privilege.

Israel’s official social media accounts also started targeting Bella Hadid for speaking up about Palestine.

The Palestinian-American model had been posting about the situation and even attended a rally where everyone chanted “From the river to the see, Palestine will be free.” Israel’s official Twitter account then accused her of wanting to throw “Jews into the sea”.

Of course, that chant is not about throwing Jews into the sea. It’s talking about the contested borders of Israel and Palestine, stretching from the River Jordan in the West Bank to the Mediterranean Sea.

It’s a common chant that seems straightforward enough, but that didn’t stop Israeli social media producers doubling down on TikTok with this puppy-dog-eyed video once again calling out Bella Hadid.

@israelThis is for Bella Hadid. Matching alongside Palestinians advocating to throw Jews into the sea isn’t a good look. Even for a supermodel. ##Israel ##fyp♬ Pain That Lasts – Jacob Yoffee

It’s worth noting that none of this is new. The Israeli government and army have been posting with this smol bean energy for some time now.

Just last month Israel posted a TikTok which referred to the country itself as, uhh, non-binary for some reason. Yep, your enby fave is also responsible for killing over 200 Palestinian civilians.

There really is a war of narratives taking place online, both between individuals and between governments.

Israel’s cursed social media presence seems to be part of a much, much larger effort to get the global public on side. Judging by its Twitter mentions, it’s not working too well here.
