Alert the Government!

1. Pro-terrorist and antisemitic content on the web poses a serious threat. Much of this content can be found on areas like Facebook, YouTube, Blogger, Wordpress, Wikipedia, etc.

This content is often against these ISP's own terms. For example, Facebook's terms state:

One cannot "upload, post, transmit, share, store or otherwise make available any content that we deem to be harmful, threatening, unlawful, defamatory, infringing, abusive, inflammatory, harassing, vulgar, obscene, fraudulent, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable"

Also, one cannot "upload, post, transmit, share, store or otherwise make available content that would constitute, encourage or provide instructions for a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party, or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national or international law"

2. Despite a massive campaign to report these groups to Facebook and to the Media, Facebook barely made a dent in removing them. However, we do give them credit for removing 106 problematic groups impacting over 125,000 people active in them (due to our concentrated effort of reporting groups.)

3. There are hundreds more which have not been deleted despite thousands of complaints. There are also many more new groups created daily, so the problem is spiraling out of control.

4. Therefore hatred and cyber jihadists continue to grow stronger despite operating against Facebook's terms, and in some cases against international and regional laws.

5. We do not understand why. Perhaps this excerpt from a popular blog about Facebook might explain:

"Recently Shimon Peres suggested that Israelis and Jews worldwide use Facebook to fight anti-semitism in addition to inviting Mark Zuckerberg to Israel. I asked him about his thoughts on Facebook as a tool to fight anti-semitism and if Facebook would take proactive measures to fight against it. Mark believes that Facebook need to focus on building useful communication tools and that the users can use these tools to connect and generate more worldly perspectives. As such Facebook does not need to be proactive about it. When asked about whether he will visit Israel next year, he said maybe."

6. Politicians know that the future is in the hands of the younger generation. Let them know your concerns by writing. Please ask them to do whatever they can to help combat the serious problems of pro-terrorist and other hate groups all over Facebook (and the web.) Let them know that you feel much of the activity happening here might be illegal (since there are groups actively promoting illegal terrorist groups here) and that a proper government investigation should be considered.

7. We believe the following steps are now necessary:

-Contact the White House here: Contact the President!, Contact the Vice President!

-Contact your Attorneys General by State:

-Contact your Senators:

-Contact your State Reps:

-Contact any other local law enforcement agencies as needed.

-Keep it simple. Make sure you use your name, age, where you are from, and let them know that seeing all of this on Facebook is not making you feel comfortable online and that you would like to see our government doing more about it as you see this as another important front in the war which you feel is being neglected. Make sure you provide them a link which will take them to the most problematic material:

Good luck and thank you for being part of an important cause!
