Israel's Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer landed himself in hot water Thursday when his Twitter Q&A #AskDermer was hijacked by Palestine activists. The Q&A was held amid escalating violence between Israel and Hamas forces in Gaza. The hashtag, which was used more than 20,000 times, included questions that were harshly critical of Israel's strategy in Gaza. Many tweets by activists were snarky, and others were angry.
