Facebook has its hands full and I understand that, there are many other pages here that I have yet to mention from the KKK and White Supremacist groups to one page by the name of “F*** Palestine”. Yes, there is only page by that name as opposed to the 282 pages by the similar name with Israel.
As with any social networking site that is free and accessible to millions of people worldwide you are bound to have issues and therefore many rules as well. According to the Facebook “Terms” last updated April 22, 2010: “Safety”6- You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user.7- You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.10- You will not use Facebook to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory. How well is Facebook enforcing the Pages that blatantly break these rules? There are 282 pages on Facebook of pages with the name “F Israel!”, or “F you Israel!” Some of these pages have over 30,000 members. I know that they have been reported because I had hundreds, if not thousands, of associates and their colleagues report these pages on several occasions since January. Samplings of posts from some of these pages are vile to say the least beware of clicking the links on account of foul language: F Israel Page:you Fin jew! do you wanna die or what? i am gonna make soap from you! from all jews! sieg heil!!!!! F Jews Page:Simona Liukenskiene: yup, kill them all \m/Matt Kliethermes: Hey Simona my band has a song called Dead Jews Do No wrong F You Israel Page, discussing Hitler:Kamal Saba god rest his soul he is our man for burning and grilling the jewsKamal Saba soon hes coming back to grill netenyaho and companyyyyyy hahahahah And then there are those whose Page name says it all: Why didn’t Hitler get Tactical Nuke first? He had a 6 million kill-streak.
