2.5 Million Muslims Threaten to Leave Facebook
NBC Bay Area ^ | Wed, Jul 14, 2010 | LORI PREUITT

Posted on 07/14/2010 8:49:42 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Facebook has a new PR issue on its hands.

Apparently, its made as many as 2.5 million customers mad enough to threaten a boycott.

The group claims to represent Muslims who are mad about the removal of four Facebook pages.

These are the pages no longer available on the site:

Facebook.com/Rassoul.Allaah Facebook.com/Logo.Ramadan LikesFacebook.com/I.Love.Mohammed Facebook.com/Quran.Lovers

The deadline is a week from today. The group claims it has hundreds of thousands of users who are ready to jump ship to another site called madina.com, which is a Islamic social networking site.

For now, the group is trying to get its message out by posting the same comment over and over on Facebook blogs. Facebook Admins, Moderators, Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, Sheryl Sandberg, and Matt Cohler; Although you have attended the world's best communication skills courses you have been most successful in growing great hatred and hostility between you and Muslims around the world, but seriously this time you have caused an almost unrepairable damage.

They go on to list their demands:

Reactivating the four pages that have been disabled Adding a Facebook Term that illegalizes disrespecting all Islamic religious symbols, including Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the Qur'an, as well as Prophet Moses (PBUH), Prophet Jesus (PBUH), and the original Bible Disabling any Facebook Page, Group, or Event that shows direct or indirect disrespect towards Islamic religious symbols

We have a message into the Facebook press folks to see if they have a comment on the movement. We also have no idea why the four sites were taken down in the first place. Hopefully Facebook will answer our inquiry soon. Check back for updates.

But you wouldn't get the exposure, like you do on facebook, to piss-off all the right people.

I laugh at your threat...

I thot we learned on the playground to let those who pouted, threatened, and stamped their little feet — to let them just go.

Just like they threatened not to fly on our airlines. Boo hoo. Maybe this will keep some teenage Muslim girls from getting killed by their fathers.

Good.

Maybe most of them can leave my country while they’re at it. (Sincere reformers who leave the Verse of the Sword at the border can stay, as far as I’m concerned.)

Their game plan is to get all Muslims off Facebook, to get them away from anti-Islamic influences. Once there is an Islamic site, then any Muslim still on Facebook is an infidel-lover.

>> Adding a Facebook Term that illegalizes disrespecting

From the cult that disrespects Life.

Why is this a PR issue? Hmmmm...another thought. Could they do something to make all the illegals leave?
