Facebook endorses Hamas? (an old post from 6.19.08)

The Official Hamas Charter calls for Murder and the complete destruction of Israel, Jews, Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, the Lions and others in different parts of the world. Here one can read a good break down of it.

Facebook is a company founded by Mark Zuckerberg. Their terms of use are as follows:

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.....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;"
Are not various groups celebrating Hamas in violation of those rules?

The JIDF thinks so. Here's a group which celebrates Ahmed Yassin (pictured):

This group shows its support for Hamas and Ahmed Yassin. Yassin was responsible for the following:
  • The ruthless attacks he inspired and personally approved include:The June 1, 2001 suicide bombing of a discotheque near Tel Aviv's Dolphinarium. 21 young people were killed and 120 wounded when a Hamas bomber blew himself up while standing in a large group of teenagers waiting to enter the disco
  • The March 27, 2002 suicide bombing of the dining room of the Park Hotel in the coastal city of Netanya. 30 people were killed and 140 injured, in the midst of their Passover holiday 'Seder' dinner.

  • The June 18, 2002, suicide bombing of a commuter bus in Jerusalem in which 19 people were killed and 74 injured. The bus, which was completely destroyed, was carrying many students on their way to school

Hundreds more Israeli civilians fell victim to Yassin's cruel hate, while innocently riding on buses, dining in restaurants, shopping in malls, or just walking down the street

Yassin was a chilling example of a leader who cynically manipulated the lives of his followers in order to further his own power. He distorted lofty religious principles in order to recruit Palestinians, including children and women, to embark upon so-called 'holy Jihad' missions and to kill themselves in order to murder hundreds of Israeli civilians.

Despite thousands of complaints from thousands of users for the past few months, Facebook continues to apparently consider this "legitimate political discourse." (As per our telephone conversation with Facebook.) This is not the only group on Facebook which supports Hamas. There are many which support this and many other terrorist groups (Hezbollah, Muslim Brotherhood, PFLP, etc) which promote hatred, violence, and murder (despite Facebook's own rules.)

What gives? Why does Facebook give Hamas a platform to spread its hatred and promotion of violence and murder?

With over 115 MILLION Facebook members globally, don't you think we should DO something about it?
