ADL slams Facebook for refusing to remove 'third Intifada' fan page
Haaretz ^ | 3/27/11 | Natasha Mozgovaya

Posted on 03/27/2011 8:20:25 PM PDT by Nachum

The Anti Defamation League filed Friday an official complaint against Facebook for refusing to remove the Facebook fan page called the Third Palestinian Intifada.

“This Facebook page constitutes an appalling abuse of technology to promote terrorist violence,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.

“Although the managers of this group claim to be calling for peaceful demonstrations, the Third Intifada pages include calls for followers to build on the previous two intifadas. We should not be so naïve to believe that a campaign for a ‘Third Intifada’ does not portend renewed violence, especially in the current climate that has seen a dramatic increase in rocket attacks from Gaza, the brutal murder of the Fogel family in the West Bank, and a terrorist bombing in Jerusalem.”

Go to the bottom of their page. On the left hand side, you click on “report page”. Then check the item “Contains hate speech or attacks an individual”...

Go to facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Palestinian.Intifada

Go to the bottom of the page in the left corner, click on Report a page. Then click contains hate speech and then in the pull down box click on, Targets a race or ethnicity.

Thanks. I am relieved to see it is just a safety valve for pent up hurt feelers for PC nonsense. For a minute I thought we might have a First Amendment issue.

Errrr....they can do or say whatever they want. But, I also have a right to complain about it. They are targeting Israel for destruction. Now you might like to just say it has everything to do with free speech. But, I’m not going to sit by if there is something I can do. This is more then hate speech and you know it. I have free speech too. AND I’M GOING TO COMPLAIN LOUDLY.

To be honest, I don’t like the ADL, and I’m STILL waiting for their comments on the NPR mess.

The ADL actually stands for “All Democrats League.”

They only defend liberal Jews, not Conservative Jews. When was the last time they defended Mark Levin, David Horowitz, or Jonah Goldberg ?(At one time, this list would have included Eric Cantor, but he’s no longer a Conservative.)

Good on you. The remedy for offensive speech is more speech. The remedy for a threat with a realistic perception that the speaker has intent to carry out the threat, is a bullet to the speaker's head. I'm more of a Mossad, than an ADL type. Next year in Israel.

Do you have any complaints about Jerusalem dividing itself in half to accommodate their enemy?

Antifada # 3 starts on Facebook.

WWIII starts on Facebook.

Time to fast and pray for Israel.

I’m surprised. Foxman is usually a soft touch for muzzies. Did he grow a brain?

I don’t believe in killing someone just because of speech. However, I don’t have a problem with someone killing someone to protect themselves. When it comes to what these people are doing, the speech always comes before the act. Israel has every right to defend itself. I will do what I can for Israel and the Jewish people, on my knees, with my wallet, and with my voice.

Just stay safe and know there are many, many Christian’s and many American’s, behind Israel and the Jewish people. Both, in prayers, monetary, and our voice. Hopefully we will get a President in 2012 that also is behind Israel. This one sure isn’t. The left has come out of it’s anti-Semitic closet and is showing their true colors for all to see.

Truthfully, it would be best if activist FReepers would join every conservative blog they can and get more people to complain to Facebook.

Though, I am sure you look just like James Bond...

Ha Nachum, too many scars. I've been in a couple real wars and then years of martial arts, but I complained. I could not bring myself to "Like" a spot that wants to kill my friends, my daughter in Israel, something about this "social justice" crapola really brings fear to me in the sense that "leaflets" are dropped worldwide, not in a select area. This means hatred can be bred simply worlwide by a social networking site ....best we can do is ask why certain advertisements are on that site, a little "print screen" should work and add some propaganda right back at them. WITH LAWYERS ATTACHED!

I always have to much to say and write. It has occurred to me this could be a very illegal site, Facebook being the aide and abettor of terrorism and justifying murdering people in the guise of "liking" something on Facebook," and that is wrong. I can't imagine a Jewish group stating they want to blow up all of Gaza and kill all pali's, somone like me yes, I could say that but seeing war, smelling it, in operson is horrid, massively horrid. But promoting murder on a social website is just as horrid; it's like some terrorist that murdered the Fofel family, machine gunned children in Reb Kook's Yeshia, killing a pregnant woman and her husband after Israel TOOK DOWN blockades( too much here) and then when Israel retaliated the people get a one sided view on an"apartheid state," Jews, the blood libel killers," when in fact it's just the opposite, and badly opposite.

This is why I complained and didn't post despite my "bravado" but when I saw that site, it crushed me deeply

This is why I know there will always be blood on this earth and yet pray for peace that is a mere word with little meaning for those who haven't experienced the horrors of war. The propaganda wars and pali 'stat e baloney is so many lies I don't know where to begin, one at a time . For now, I complain but really is this site adhering to the first amendment or have they truly stomped on it and turned it into an anti-semitic hate brawl? There is NO EXCUSE for this yet the double standard is so rooted in backward history/propaganda that if ONE Israeli is killed, just one because of "liking" a murderous Jewish hate site, then the people that own Facebook should pay, and those that add their names to that site should stand upon the front outside Ashkelon, or Sderot, and when the sirens wail they must stand waiting the Qassam's and SEE the other side, shalom

Then check the item “Contains hate speech or attacks an individual”...BR? There is an option for "Violence" too. Seems a better choice. This sin't hate speech, it is a call for bloodshed.
