The big Facebook Face-off: Anti-Jew vs. Anti-Jihad

Facebook has been served. Outed. Owned. Shurat HaDin, an Israeli based civil rights organization, set out in late December to test whether Facebook holds double standards when it comes to incitement. The NGO launched “The Big Facebook Experiment,” which sought to expose the reality of anti-Israel sentiment vis-a-vis the simultaneous launch of two Facebook pages: “Stop Palestinians” and “Stop Israel.”

One page incites against Jews.
One page incites against Muslims.
Which page will be closed by Facebook?

My only issue with this video is the reluctance to use the word Muslims. They use “Jew.” But instead of “Muslim,” which is the correct and accurate word, they use “Arab” or the more absurd “Palestinian.”

Mark Zuckerberg is busy kissing Merkel’s arsch and funneling Facebook revenue to fund the Muslim invasion of Europe — in other words, funding the coming annihilation of the Jews.

When it comes to incitement, is Facebook biased against Israel? J Post, January 5, 2016:

Shurat HaDin exposed Facebook’s double standard in removing inflammatory material on its site.

Social media has, for years now, served as a driving force behind terrorism, giving an easily accessible platform to the tech-savvy generation which connects extremists with would-be jihadis worldwide.

With the proliferation of anti-Israel Facebook pages and trending twitter hashtags, cyber jihad has grown to be all too familiar and difficult to control. As jihad accounts are removed from respective networks, new ones are immediately launched in their place, brewing the anti-Israel sentiment that serves as a catalyst for the violence carried out by the young jihadis behind Israel’s latest terror wave.

Shurat HaDin, an Israeli based civil rights organization, set out in late December to test whether Facebook holds double standards when it comes to incitement. The NGO launched “The Big Facebook Experiment,” which sought to expose the reality of anti-Israel sentiment vis-a-vis the simultaneous launch of two Facebook pages: “Stop Palestinians” and “Stop Israel.”

Following the launch of the two nearly-identical pages on December 29, the NGO posted hateful content simultaneously on both pages over the course of the next few days.

A post on the anti-Israel page read, “The Zionist bites Palestine part after part and the world is silent. We’ll stop them any way we can,” whereas an identical post calling to stomp on the Palestinian enemy on the pro-Israel page read: “Greater land Israel should return soon from the hands of the Muslim enemy back to Jewish sovereignty! We’ll do it in any way we can.”

The pro-Palestinian page promised to “demolish the Zionist invader,” and called for revenge against the “Zionist enemy that threatens al-Aksa.” A call to rise up against Israel was portrayed in a caricature featuring a Star of David bearing crocodile with the Temple Mount compound perched beneath the roof of its mouth and a knife nested against its snout – an accompanying post to the illustration called for “death to all the Jews.”

Meanwhile, on the pro-Israel page, a post calling to wage war against the “Palestinian enemy” claimed that “more and more soldiers in the IDF know that there is a need to destroy the Arab enemy.” Another post featured a collage of a handful of so-called “price tag” attacks and an accompanying caption calling for “death to all the Arabs.”

The next step in Shurat HaDin’s experiment was to report both faux-incitement pages to Facebook to see which, if either, would be removed under the auspices of hateful content.

Despite featuring identical content, however, only one was removed from the online platform.

The page inciting against Palestinians was closed by Facebook (on the same day that it was reported) for “containing credible threat of violence” which “violated our [Facebook’s] community standards.” The page inciting against Israelis, however, was not shut down, despite its identical hateful content. Facebook claimed that this page was “not in violation of Facebook’s rules.”

Shurat HaDin’s staged anti-Israel group “Stop Israel” still remains active on Facebook.

“The Big Facebook Experiment” backs an unprecedented lawsuit which was filed in October by Shurat HaDin law center against Facebook on behalf of 20,000 Israelis to stop allowing Palestinian terrorists to incite violent attacks against Israeli citizens on the social network’s platform.

The complaint, filed in response to the ongoing wave of terror in Israel, sought an injunction against Facebook which would require stricter monitoring of incitement and immediate response to complaints about anti-Israel or violence-inducing content.

Shurat HaDin argued that Facebook acts as a non-neutral platform and cannot be considered a mere “publisher of speech” since its complex algorithms connect terrorists to inciters and would-be jihadis.

According to the NGO, “Facebook actively assists the inciters to find people who are interested in acting on their hateful messages by offering friend, group and event suggestions and targeting advertising based on people’s online ‘likes’ and internet browsing history.” Additionally, Facebook often gives incitement pages the freedom to operate and continue operation despite reports of hateful content, under the claim that they do not violate its “community standards.”

“Calling on people to commit crimes is not constitutionally protected speech and endangers the lives of Jews and Israelis,” Shurat HaDin said in its claim.

The NGO promised to pursue the claims until Facebook ceases to “allow itself to serve as a tool for terrorists to transmit their rabble rousing messages to their followers and that incitement to anti-Semitic violence will not be tolerated on its website.”

    Thanks Pamela!

    Also, it might be interesting to make one side’s pages even worse than the other, and see which side gets banned. I bet the outcome would still be the same :)

  • Dr. Doomsday

    I had mine turned off by FB for disagreeing with idiots in NYC over the ground zero mosque. I was not profane or cruel, I just did not back down and pointed out the cluelessness of the opposition. Naturally, the rabid, dung brained college aged useful idiots for Islam are still there…


      Cut the cord to Facebook.

      The more people who boycott Facebook until it regains its morality, the better.

  • wildjew

    Woops! Hey Mark Zuckerberg.

    • ruthy k

      May I finish your sentance please?

      Hey Mark Zuckerberg.- They want to kill you too. Look at your last name. But people that incite to result in real murder, namely of infidels (you Mark) and Jews (also you, Marky boy), are permissible on your site! When they come for you and you want sympathy and saving, I wonder what G-d’s response will be when you allow for the endangerment of millions of people? TY Pam!

      • wildjew

        Mr. Zuckerberg is “feeding the crocodile….”

      • cassandra

        Zuckerpuke is protected by guards who are armed with guns that he doesnt want ordinary people to have! He is truly evil and power-crazed.
        (Jewish here too.)

        • ruthy k

          He’s no hero. Jews don’t hold him in high regard in my circles. everything else you aid is fine by me though.

  • bargogx1

    There needs to be more actions taken like this to expose double standards.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Facebook is a toxic soap box for bigots to spew hate towards those who the censors at facebook decide. By allowing some views and suppressing others, facebook keeps the spirit of totalitarianism driven racist bigotry alive, and well nourished. It would be great if there was an unbiased intelligent alternative to hatebook.

    • Don Grantham

      The only intelligent alternative is to never sign up in the first place.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Best advice pertaining to facebook.

      • Reagan40

        I have never signed up to facebook neither have I allowed my children to. I always prefer facelife and face school books for my children.

  • Xavier

    I detest Facebook as much as the next Jew-supporting luddite. But as a private company, aren’t they allowed to do as they please with the site?

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Is a private person allowed to publicly call for violence against others? Apparently so, but only when a muslim is calling for the murder of everyone.

      • Xavier

        I was referring to the page takedown – of course inciting violence should be illegal – but we know the truth about that.

        Don’t misunderstand – I’m just wondering where a private company’s rights end and the public good begins.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Although I shun facebook like something laying in the grass of an off leash dog park, many people that I have talked to have found it removes comments and suspends users on an indiscriminate basis, though anything criticizing islam seems to be targeted. Facebook, not recommended, avoid.

          • Don Grantham

            My Pa always taught me the difference between Shiite and shinola… one goes on the top of yer boot, the other on the bottom.
            If you ever get confused, jus’ put ’em both on the pointy end.

          • Don Grantham

            Apply as needed…

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Good advice, the pointy end is a good tool to shove shiite back where it cam from.

  • tiredofstupid

    Not a facebook fan anyway, just shut the whole thing down and I wouldn’t miss it at all.

    • Shuali

      But Facebook will still be there to assist the Jihadists.

  • Areyoukiddingme

    Your money isn’t going to save you Mark you self hating waste of life.

  • atl slayer

    Yep, kill for god, o I mean Allah, o I mean god,,no wait Allah, see how the auto capitalize works :/

    • Heinz Rund

      Allah is a proper noun/name, while god rather is a profession :) .
      His/her name is Yahweh… But your mobile seems to be a bit atheistic. Anyway, don’t burn it on a stake, send it to me.

      • atl slayer

        Haha, I won’t set it on fire, the story was much better example than my silly comment :)

  • Lato Sensu

    booky face is two faced — you must be speaking with forked tongue… be the truth– believe it or else

    • Don Grantham

      I especially liked the part about how the devil spends the night inside a Muslim’s nose. Now I know what I gotta do… GOD’S WILL BE DONE!
      Pro Tip: Start by practicing on self-hating white liberals… try to picture Suckerborg on the receiving end for maximum effect.

      • Lato Sensu

        way to go Don – you chuckle me guts.

      • Lato Sensu

        at least some one be “akamai” about my bs…

  • Marilyn Gopel

    So we have a zuckerberg (Jew) who is sympathetic to TERRORISTS. A self-hating Jew

    • Judi

      Be being Jewish myself, I am ashamed of him. He is a traitor.

      • munchenfez

        Add him to the list of criminals to be tried a la Nurnberg when we have managed to clean house.

    • Shuali

      What about Soros? More toxic Jew yet!

      • Rua Richard Cranium

        Theyre capos

        allahu fubar

      • Rua Richard Cranium

        Theyre capos


    • ______________

      It is a liberal first, and a Jew second. In fact, it is only a Jew on paper, but not a real Jew. Any real Jew will not be biased against Jews. Liberals favor any category of people that plays the victim, and are biased against any category that does not play the victim. Muslims play the victim. Jews do not. So guess who gets favoritism from Facebook?

  • Mal M

    Prop@ganda lesson about Jews.
    Religious lesson in Al-Aqsa Mosque: “[Jews] prepare their matzah with the blood of children. They were burned in Germany because they kidnapped young children” to make matzah.
    “The Children of Israel would look for a small child, kidnap and steal him, bring a barrel called the barrel of nails. They would put the small child in the barrel and his body would be pierced by these nails.
    In the bottom of the barrel they would put a faucet and pour the blood”

    • Mahou Shoujo

      There are two places you cannot believe everything written, the internet and a mosque.

  • JWM

    I avoid facebook like the plaque. I won’t read sites that only allow posting through facebook.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      When a site changes to comments through face book only, I cancel my subscription delete it from my bookmarks and forget it completely.

  • Ron rockit

    Jewicide. Zukerburg, Rahm, Soros. We do the rest of us have to suffer such fools?

  • Up Huff

    Zuckerberg’s Facebook is in for a legal drubbing. Can’t have it both ways when claiming to be neutral. It will be good to see him get his head handed to him. Or is it, shoved up his arse?


      Public humiliation of Facebook is necessary to effect any change from them.

      As if the use by jihadi savages before they went on the murder spree wasn’t bad enough.

  • hyena

    It was during the Protective Edge antiterrorist camnpaign. I was repeatedly contacting facebook regarding hateful posts by local moslem vvhores – moslem converts, calling for the murder of Jews. Facebook repeatedly said they had no intention of interfering with these posts. My friend however started posting politically uncorrect questions regarding the forced islamization. Account was banned faster than you can say Aby Bakr Al-Baghdadi. Facebook is typical leftist corporation enforcing sharia. Just like Amazon. It is rather surprising that links to facebook are all over this page. Especially that facebook tracks all the websites and these pages’ visitors – only thing they need is “like” button and a cookie lands on your computer. You don’t even have to have facebook, it tracks you regardless of if you have an account or not. This data is of course stored for NSA and other three letter US agencies to browse and use against you.

    • Reagan40

      I will not be surprised if Saudi petrol dollar is in charge of facebook. Is there something that the ungodly will not do for money? Nothing explains the double standards of facebook.

  • cassandra

    Mark Kapoberg: this era’s Soros. I dont understand why various Jewish internet media outlets, such as Arutz Sheva and United with Israel only allow comments from facepuke! If you are not part of that, you cant express your support for Israel. Totalyl screwy!!

  • joe1429

    Always a double standard for israel. North korea just tested the H bomb, and iran on path to nukes, and us throws israel and the saudis under the bus
