Is Facebook Biased Against Israel and Jews?

Although Facebook’s ground rules officiallyprohibit bullying, harassment, and threatening language, last year it received numerous complaints about online incitement. On January 18, Facebooklaunched an initiative to prevent anti-Muslim hate speech on its German platform. But, according to a lawsuit filed in New York state court and a highly-publicized “experiment,”Facebook has no problem with anti-Jewish incitement.

      I don’t bother with either Facebook or Twitter.

        Twitter doesn’t have a real name policy as far as I know. And it is quite good for sharing info/news in real-time.

    I wonder how much is just that the Disvestites and Islamophiles are more active in trying to get posts and speech they don’t like banned. Conservatives (ie Classical Liberals) have always been of the mind to let idiots expose themselves, rather than try to shut them up.

      Shurat HaDin demonstrated Facebook’s bias by conducting an online experiment. On December 28, it set up two Facebook pages, one filled with anti-Semitic and anti-Israel postings, the other with anti-Muslim and anti-Palestinian postings. The NGO then ratcheted up the incitement level with parallel posts to both pages, ultimately calling for death to Jews and Arabs.

      Then, Shurat HaDin simultaneously reported both pages to Facebook. The same day, Facebook closed the anti-Palestinian page, stating that it violated Facebook’s community standards.

      And the page inciting violence against Jews? Initially, Facebook refused to shut it down. Instead, it sent a message reporting that the page did not violate Facebook’s rules. Only after Shurat HaDin reported what it had done and media picked up the story did Facebook change its tune and close the page, claiming the page did indeed violate Facebook standards, and that the earlier message to the contrary had been a “mistake.”

    I doubt that the Police in Toronto could produce just one Arrest file for a Muslims that was charge for a Hate-crime.
    I’ve never hear of one and doubt it will ever happen because we have a Liberalism of lowered expectations for muslims where Politician and Barbara Hall see muslims as lesser humans that are predisposed to violence, hatred , riots and terrorism .

    In the mind of a Liberal, muslims are always the victims.

    In fact, Omar Khadr’s Sister just got her self in trouble in Turkey and i have no doubt that Justin will bail her out as Jean Chretien did for her Dad that returned to jihad fighting.
    Just watch for the leftist anti-West Public Unions and the STAR paint her as a victim and try to blame Harper for her plight.

      It’s not a real belief, they just do and say that because they need them as foot soldiers in their war against the west.

      Muslims have the balls to do what they don’t have the balls to do.

      I would assume that she doesn’t yet wish to be bailed out – she would prefer that the Canadian Govt does nothing for a while to allow the SJW’s to build a case for a multi million dollar compensation suit against the Canadian Govt.

    Facebook is so desperate for new users that they bombard the internet with adverts to get new users.
    They even run ads on TV now.

    Hell, they even advertise on this blog…..

    LOL @ Facebook……
