Posted on 11/12/2012 8:06:31 PM PST by therightliveswithus
Facebook is striking back at the administers of the group Uprising of Women in the Arab World. The reason? One of the women in the group had the audacity to show herself without a veil on.
In October, Dana Bakdounes posted a picture of herself unveiled, holding a message that read in Arabic and English, I am with the uprising of women in the Arab world because, for 20 years, I was not allowed to feel the wind in my hair.
By October 25, the picture was removed by Facebook. Facebook took further action, temporarily banning five administrators of the group because they had posted "content that violated" Facebook's terms of service.
The crime? The picture threatens, intimidates, harasses, or brings unwanted attention or embarrassment to an individual or group of people. In this case, the Arab world.
There is also word that the group was temporarily blocked completely.
Freedom of speech? Not on Facebook.
meanwhile getting them to ban child-sex pages can be a chore.
Look at that door, it looks like it has been kicked in. Stand up girl! I can’t believe Facebook would do this. I thought they were buddies with Obama— Obama is all about the women, doncha know. Horrible!
I hope this brave woman isn’t killed.
“Liberal” Facebook to Women: Get Back In Your Burqas !
Islam - Keeping women “in their place” for centuries. The genital mutilation thing is positively barbaric.
Any comment from the NAGs?
I will be the first to say it,
Oh those peaceful Muslims they treat their women so well, if only those Amerikan women would open their eyes and see how repressed they are and how bad they are treated in Amerika. Fear not women of the West, in the glorious world of next Tuesday you will be as free as the Muslim women are.
Wow, that’s hilarious.
Facebook doesn’t want to get firebombed any more than you or I do.
The reason arab men demand women have veils is so they can go in drag and nobody notices.
