Facebook's Anti-Hate Policy Doesn't Apply To Palistine, So Israelis Sue
The wave of stabbing attacks against Jews in Israel continues unabated. The only difference with the beginning of the current terror wave, that started more than a month ago, is that most attacks now occur in the so-called West Bank (Judea and Samaria).
At the beginning of the current uprising, most attacks were directed at Jerusalem; but since Israel reinforced security forces on a massive scale, the capital of Israel has been relatively quiet.
There are two hotspots in Judea where most attacks occur. One of them is the main intersection at Gush Etzion on Highway 60 from Jerusalem to Hebron, and the other hotspot is the Hebron area.
A group of twenty thousand Israelis has now sued Facebook over its collaboration with Palestinian incitement. The group filed a class-action lawsuit in Brooklyn and demanded from Facebook the removal of all posts containing incitement to murder Jews, The Times of Israel reported.
The plaintiffs released a press statement that said that many terrorists who carried out attacks during the recent wave of violence “were motivated to commit their heinous crimes by incitement to murder they read on Facebook — demagogues and leaders exhorting their followers to ‘slaughter the Jews,’ and offering instruction as to the best manner to do so, including even anatomical charts showing the best places to stab a human being.”
