JTA – A Facebook petition to remove an anti-Israel page that uses an expletive in its name has 75,000 likes, the removal campaign’s creator says.

Michael Mendelson of Miami told JTA by telephone that the removal petition against the “Fuck Israel” page has been on Facebook for less than a week; the number of likes is as of Monday. He said he started the counter campaign “with the help of various pro-Israel groups” in the Miami area.

    We are now going to take it public. Your help would be appreciated. Also have a flyer if you want a copy.

    Anti Semitism, Holocaust denial, bully, credible threat of violence pages/groups and profiles are running rampant throughout Facebook. We’ve created a page about a 3 months ago & blew up to almost 10,000 likes. We have had success in removing many of these pages privately for about a year now. And we have just uncovered a prostitution page with filthy pics, phone numbers and open email contacts with close to 19,000 ppl on it.

    We have successfully removed over 500 pages this past year. This week we finally removed “Death To Israel” & “Hitler’s Memorial” “Kentucky Fried Jews” and way much more. yet there are 1000’s more & the removed get replaced quite quickly. Below is a link to our page.

    Next step of action would be, is to hold a demonstration in front of Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park. We have stared promoting and police know we are coming. All we need to do so legally has been taken care of for our protection is in place. That’s where your help comes in. We are asking for your support be providing a speaker and help promoting further. We have close to 200 ppl willing to go & feel that 1,000’s will show. (See blog link on the bottom. The date is set to Oct 14 10am

    Online Hate Prevention, Stand With Us & Children Of Jewish Holocaust Survivors are also onboard to help us promote.

    We must do this for the safety of our children. It’s our duty to keep FB clean. Cyber bullying is still going on. Amanda Todd took her life close to 9 months ago, yet these kids persist. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Now there is a possibility of another demonstration at the same time, but in NYC. Can keep you posted on that, but goal remains in California where I & friends will be.
