Twitter News: The Israeli Government has announced plans to ‘win the hearts of the world’ by getting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu trending on Twitter.

“We see the intense, unquestioning dedication amongst his fans that Justin Bieber commands on Twitter, and we thought we’d try a similar approach,” said Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak.

 “If anyone questions Bieber or dislikes his music, millions of his fans leap to his defence, passionately destroying those they perceive as enemies of their icon.”

“If millions will gladly defend a monster like Beiber, we hope to inspire a similar passion with the #TeamNetanyahu hashtag. Anyone suggesting a cease fire or peace talks will be drowned out by abuse, spelling mistakes and the over-punctuated tweets of #TeamNetanyahu.”

Barak says they are also planning a similar campaign on Facebook, asking users to ‘like’ the possible Israeli ground operation into the Gaza Strip.
