Facebook has temporarily blocked the Facebook page of Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu’s son Yair Netanyahu, for demanding revenge of an Islamic terrorist attack that left two Israeli soldiers dead.
Yair Netanyahu had expressed anger for the Islamic attack, labelling the Palestinians as monsters disguised as human beings.
After his post was removed, he wrote another post with screen-grab of the blocked post.
“The thought police of the radical progressives at Facebook have reached me as well! Hamas, Hezbollah and the Iranian regime have official pages on Facebook. There are also endless pages calling for the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews. Thousands of violent and extreme left-wing posts against me and my family, including threats of physical violence and immoral murder threats.” Netanyahu wrote.
Further, he had posted that Iceland and Japan are terror-free because there are no Muslims there. He also had added that there can never be peace until Muslims evacuate the land of Israel. In other words, co-existence of Jews and Muslims can never bring peace.
After all these posts, Facebook blocked the account of junior Netanyahu.
Yair then took to Twitter to express bafflement over Facebook community guidelines. Along with the screenshot of the blocked post, he wrote: “Unbelievable. Facebook blocks me for 24 hours for simply criticising it! Thought police.” In subsequent tweets, he reprimanded Facebook for turning a blind eye on hate directed towards him on Facebook.
“What’s even more amazing is that my post was removed in 5 minutes. But when I report to Facebook about the posts of people inciting hate against me, it takes them a month to come back to me and tell that the post ‘does not violate the rules of the community.”
In the earlier post, he also had also criticised media of harbouring a left-bais and had called them traitors.
Last Thursday two Israeli soldiers were shot dead by a Palestinian driver in a car-ramming attempt. Hamas later claimed that perpetrators were its operatives. The perpetrators killed in the incident were reportedly the same attackers who wounded 7 Israelis on 9 December on the Ofra junction of Samaria district, including a pregnant woman whose prematurely born baby later died.
Hamas is a Palestinian Sunni-Islamist terrorist organization founded in 1987 with an aim to turn the land of Israel into an Islamic country.
