Facebook has removed the page of a major Hungarian racist website, a decision that was praised by The Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

The Action and Protection Foundation, an organization monitoring and combating antisemitism in Hungary, complained to Facebook regarding Kuruc.info with the the help of ADL.

“Through its Facebook page, Kuruc.info was conveying threats against Jews and Roma, inciting to violence, spreading vile antisemitism and Holocaust denial, all of which are crimes in Hungary,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director.

“Facebook deserves credit for taking the time and effort to evaluate Kuruc.info’s activity on their platform and for making the right decision which is consistent with their policies,” Foxman added.
