The IDF’s Facebook account. (Credit: Screenshot by Dara Kerr/CNET) The Al Qassam great site Brigades, Hamas’ military wing, did not agree to an interview, so its full social media plans are unclear. In the past, the group reportedly managed a Facebook page and YouTube channel , but these no longer exist. The armed group maintains an active blog in English and its biggest social media presence more? info… is on Twitter, where the sporadic tweets of more than a year ago have grown to a consistent daily dozen. As of January 9, 2014, Al Qassam Brigades’ main Twitter account in English was suspended. Twitter wouldn’t say why it took this action, only that “we do not comment on individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons.” Al Qassam Brigades appears to now be using an alternative account that was initially geared toward its Arabic-speaking audience.

Theres no difference of opinions between my staff and I. They give suggestions. Some I go with, some I dont, but at the end of the day its my decision, and we are united in whichever way we decide to go. If you have a problem with that, then you should not be my assistant coach. Thats the way I feel about it. Im not saying that happened here, but wherever that happens, it shouldnt take place. So [Im] just disappointed in the way that it was handled, and how much credit is given to a head coach, and how much fault is given. Its a no-lose situation if Im an assistant coach and I get credit when we win, but when we lose, Jason cant coach a lick. The guy is a Hall view of Fame basketball player, hes an all-time great, and hes going to be a heck of a basketball coach. Kidd called Jackson his role model in coaching after Jackson went straight from the broadcast booth to coaching the Warriors prior to the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season.
