The platforms of social Networks play a growing role in influencing the public opinion. In addition, social Networks can describe the reaction of communities towards the reigning conflicts in the world. As a matter of fact, analysis of Social Networks has been used widely for a better understanding how communities address prominent and influential events. As for Twitter, it has used as a platform for exchanging opinions and showing support for either of parties of a conflict. For instance, Twitter witnessed trending of hashtags such as #Gazawar #GazaUnderAttack or #IsraelUnderFire. In this paper, we discuss the role of Social Networks, particularly Twitter, in influencing the Israeli war on Gaza Strip - Palestine during summer 2014. This study shows the mode of public opinion and its reflections on what is trending on Twitter. We construct a dataset drawn from Social Networks sources to examine the behavior of Israeli, Palestinian and foreigner universe. Moreover, we analyze the dataset including tweets as reactions to Gaza War 2014. The results illustrate the important insight of the Social Networks. As regards influencing, it affects perspective of the international universe as well how they address the conflict.
