Israel warns citizens to beware Facebook spy requests

Terrorists have turned Facebook into a recruiting tool, warns Israel’s Shin Bet security service.

“The Shin Bet has gotten many reports about cases where terrorist elements are using the Internet to get in touch with Israelis with proposals to enlist in terror activity or to pass classified information in exchange for payment,” the statement said.

Terrorists – presumably Hezbollah and Hamas – are combing social networking sites for names, addresses, and phone numbers, according to Israeli intelligence. Why this came as a surprise when paedophiles have been doing the same thing for years is beyond me.
