(TMU) — The Twitter account belonging to Israel Defense Forces (IDF) seems bent on improving the image of the state of Israel’s military forces and often goes to inappropriate lengths to do so.
In their latest attempt to make the internet laugh while their forces simultaneously wreak havoc on occupied Palestine, the IDF tweeted out a video coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the American sitcom Friends.
The 15 second tweet, which can be summarized as an epic backfire, shows a group of young and seemingly attractive soldiers happen upon each other in front of a fountain, much like the intro to Friends, which was first broadcast on September 22, 1994.
“Our soldiers couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate #Friends25 than celebrating… with friends,” the tweet read.
Multiple Twitter users who appear to be familiar with Friends got creative with their critiques of the tweet, playing with the episode titling of the popular sitcom, whose titles always begin with “The One With..” or “The One Where..”
The one where Phoebe shot a schoolgirl at a checkpoint. The one where Joey fired a rocket into an arab child's head. The one where Rachel shelled boys playing football on a beach. The one where Monica bulldozed a village. The one where Ross dropped white phosphorous on a playpark
What a pity you engage every day in the destruction of #Palestine and its people... as part of Israel's uninterrupted program of Colonization, Dispossession, Expulsion, Annexation of lands & resources, Military Occupation, Apartheid & siege@UNHumanRights@CIJ_ICJ@hrw@amnesty
