Facebook Decides Pro-Israel Satire Offensive, Anti-Israel Hate OK

star target

By: PreOccupied Territory

Facebook Menlo Park, CA, August 11 – Social media giant Facebook decided to accept at face value a report that a satirical website’s pro-Israel humor was worth censoring, while allowing dozens, if not hundreds, of hate-spewing pages to continue spilling their anti-Israel and antisemitic vitriol.

PreOccupied Territory administrators attempted to access the Facebook page today only to find a notice that the page had been “temporarily unpublished” for “controversial humor.”

No notice was given to the site administrators of any impending shutdown, and they were therefore unable to prevent or appeal the action.

The appeals process, if one exists, can only begin after a tedious verification process of the administrators’ identities, meaning that any remedying of the situation will necessarily deprive the fledgling operation of crucial time in its quest to establish and maintain an audience. The outcome of that appeal also remains unknowable at this stage. By contrast, the bigotry-laden pages of pro-Palestinian activists remain untouched.

It is unknown how many of those pages have been reported.

Facebook declined to comment on the incident, referring inquiries to a login page that merely reproduced the notice to the administrators and asked for photo ID with date of birth.

  1. FB don’t start messing with my friends. No Bias here surly you have an open mind.

  2. You know amazes me…the founder of Facebook is Jewish!!!! He shouldn’t stand for this…he obviously has no control or say in the matter!!!!
    Disgraceful!

  3. I am pro Israel come and get me cowardly anti semites

  4. fb is liberal, what more could be expected?

  5. Not surprised. I reported a page that was “kill Israel” and I got a message back saying it didn’t violate their standards.

  6. I sent in a number of pages for FB to review, all with the title of either Death to Israel or Death to America and Israel. They only removed one page.

  7. Roman Druker says:

    I guess we can thank Mark Zuckerberg, the magnificent, the merciful

  8. Sara Logan says:

    Go to help center. Click on reporting things. There is a feature where you can send a note that describes your dissatisfaction.

    The next step would be (shocker) to STOP USING the Facebook products if you disagree with their policies… Or to complain to the vendors that advertise on Facebook. They can pull their ads and put them on a different forum.

  9. Faith Lauren says:

    I am not so sure he has no say in the matter, in fact, I think he is the one to decide which pages are taken down.
    There are self hating Jews, and they are the worst anti Semites.

  10. Joyce Smith says:

    Time to boycott facebook? But then what would we do with ourselves…lol.

  11. Ralph Moran says:

    Facebook is begining to sound like Hitler and 1930′s Germany. I wonder when facebook will kick me off and tell me to wear a yellow Magan David. I pray for the Peace of Jerusalem daily

  12. John Andrews says:

    No real surprise there. .Am Yisrael Chai.

  13. If we call Muslims names people attack us. Disgraceful.

  14. Face book you better not start up on my page . I love Israel the people . There sights are very imformative

  15. Hey Schumckelburg your a Jew wake up.

  16. Yeah, gotta love censorship! Wonder how his ‘wallowing-in-money’ butt would like it if another Jewish, Israeli or whatever personage, created a mega-hit social site…that trashed him back to his pizza-filled, idea-snatching, friend-bashing college days! (just for being a censorship advocate…)

  17. I did the same and got the same response. Mine was called death to Israel. Sick of FB.

  18. David Grist says:

    I thought something was odd. I paid to promote a Pro Israel page and never saw it advertised, Facebook took my money though, I call that theft.

  19. same they deleted then restored numbers of hate pages whos down to write fb a angry letter and mail it to ****tard zuckerberg?

  20. I don’t think he is seeing most if any of the complaints at all. I just wonder what kind of Jew haters he has hired to do the reviewing… I have reported White Power pages, a Holocaust denial page, scads of blatant anti semitic pages etc and almost none get taken down.

  21. Never heard of the kapos? Jewish guards in the concentration camps, often more brutal than the SS.

  22. Love you Israel! Will Never stop supporting you!

  23. What is wrong with Zuckerberg and his staff . They allow all the hate on the site.

  24. Mark Zuckerberg has renounced Judaism as is now an Atheist.

  25. A good distraction attacking the Jews and Israel. Everyone is focused in that direction when the hate should be focused on Hamas and Isis,etc. A distraction the uneducated or brainwashed fall for.

  26. A good distraction attacking the Jews and Israel. Everyone is focused in that direction when the hate should be focused on Hamas and Isis,etc. A distraction the uneducated or brainwashed fall for.

  27. Looks like Facebook is succumbing to the negative.

  28. Looks like Facebook is succumbing to the negative.

  29. Ira Kurtz says:

    He is a Kapo. MZ should burn in hell for eternity.

  30. Eric Schafer says:

    Zuckerberg is a thief and self-hater. He has no integrity and no righteousness – I wouldn’t call him a Jew because he no longer is!

  31. In fact he probably is quite aware. Typical of the entitlement younger generation where profits come before truth and where ethics is a dirty word.

  32. fb connects to israel what ever happened

  33. Jeff Wilson says:

    this is to you face book if you want a pinko commies and rag head mooslim murders say so and i will form a boycott , you worthless cowards

  34. Loren Renee says:

    Not sure how, but CAIR has Fb in it’s pocket.

  35. i can’t even believe how crazy the world has become.

  36. Haley Chace says:

    Miriam… I hear he is Atheist now!

  37. Does the U.N. have a stake in Facebook….???????????

  38. Mark Z sound like another George Soros. They hate those from their own ancestry.

  39. John Nabors says:

    I searched Facebook for PreOccupied Territory and it said “sorry, no results found”.

  40. And if you’re pro Israel, your comments may get greyed out. It has happened to me more times than I can count.

  41. This is OUTRAGIOUS!!

  42. Zuckerberg, your reputation (and bottom line) is clearly on the line. I, for one (and I think I speak for many others), will “resign” from FB if this isn’t rectified!

  43. You can put the blame on Zuckerberg all you want, fact is he has little to do with the decision making process when it comes to reports. Reports are necessary to push against a page. Enough reports get the attention of higher ranking managers. Without lots of people willing to organize and target such pages with reports for harassment, hate speech, discrimination, falsehood, etc. then a couple of busy people reporting here and there can do very little. Those few unnoticed reports go to medium and low ranking managers who get to decide whether it is a legitimate report or just some user’s not being able to understand the community standards or a false report, one that lacks enough evidence to present an issue worth “escalating” thus most of the pro-Pal pages stay, while pro-Israeli pages get wave after wave of such reports by hordes of thousands of users worldwide. If they have learned anything is how to organize an effective and strong protest, one that could cause enough shock and awe as to paralyze a community, and put them to blame one another for a collective mistake…

  44. Lize Bartsch says:

    I love Israeli jokes :( It’s all about money again isn’t it??? The Muslims must have threatened to withdraw from FB or something
