JNS.org – Facebook refused to remove a page calling for the stabbing of Israelis, claiming the page was compliant with its community standards, until an Israeli newspaper called the social network out on the decision.

The page titled “Stab Israelis” was opened in the wake of the current wave of Palestinian terror attacks taking place in Israel and called for “a campaign to support the Palestinian people including the stabbing of Israelis,” according to the website of the Hebrew daily, Yediot Aharonot.

Although Israeli social media users complained that the page was inciting violence, Facebook initially refused to remove the page, deciding that it does not violate its guidelines. Only after Yediot Aharonot published an article about Facebook’s refusal, the social network ultimately removed the page.

      Is that true that a Jew owns Facebook? I love the proposal that he should have his foreskin superglued back on.

    Yet another valid reason why I refuse to join Facebook or any other unsocial “social medium”.
    Their greed always overrides any social conscience or morality they might possess.

    Openly promoting the murder of Jews is apparently perfectly fine. But don’t dare “offend the sensibilities” of Muslims with a cartoon of Mohammed or a mean comment. That will be banned in a heartbeat.

    Maybe Zuckerberg is following the advice of the genius “clock boy”.

    well, so much for “spontaneous” attacks. how long will it take for the truth to be revealed, that all these attacks, with vehicles, or knives, or propaganda and bds, are all funded and controlled from ramallah? abbas, like arafat before him, is pursuing the plo’s goal of “liberating” israel, by every means available to him, “piece agreements” notwithstanding.
