In Honor of Israel Independence Day, JIDF Launches Mass ACTION ALERT Against "HATE ISRAEL" Facebook Content

[Originally posted 4/28/09]

We'd like to preface the following action alert by letting you know that no other organization is on top of these issues as much as the JIDF. Thus, if you appreciate our effort and understand its scope and the magnitude of these problems and issues online, your
support is needed now more than ever.

On Facebook, there is a plethora of "HATE ISRAEL" fan pages and groups with hundreds of thousands of Facebook members taking part. No other country in the world is as hated as the Jewish state, both online and off. There's no legitimate reasons for this disproportionate amount of hatred toward Israel and the Jewish people whatsoever. The sheer volume of hatred directly at Jews and Israel happening online is overwhelming, and we need to continue to pressure companies like Facebook to take the needed action and enforce their own rules against the promotion of hatred and violence.

Just last week, the JIDF launched a successful campaign to rid Facebook of the largest "HATE ISRAEL" page, with over 122,000 "haters" of Israel.

This week, in honor of Israel Independence Day, we're launching a new campaign against the 20 largest or most significant "HATE ISRAEL" fan pages and groups on Facebook. Please note, there's many more to list, including groups which blatantly support Islamic terrorism and antisemitism. We're aware of them, however, we are choosing to focus upon these now.


For our campaign, we're sending multiple alerts to over 6,500 of our fans on our public profile on Facebook, and to over 8,100 of our followers on twitter, urging them all to report this material.

We need you help: Please blog about this campaign, ask others to do the same, tweet it, email it, andshare it in your Facebook profiles. If you know of other "pro-Israel" bloggers ask them to take part.

The following 20 Facebook pages and groups are against Facebook's TOS as they are promoting hatred and/or violence. Please click on them and then click "report page" on the bottom left (if you click on them and it just goes to your Facebook home page, it means our campaign is effective and the page was removed). Please also to write to abuse@facebook.com (see our sample letter below). If Facebook does not take the needed action against the following groups, we will then proceed to take excerpts of hate speech and the promotion of violence in all of them to draw a more complete picture of the problems and why these groups are providing nothing but a platform for hatred and the promotion of violence:

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;
When one creates a page, Facebook notes:
Fake Pages and unofficial "fan pages" are a violation of our Terms of Use. If you create an unauthorized Page or violate our Terms in any way, your Facebook account may be disabled.
Furthermore, according to Facebook's TOS:
Facebook Pages are special profiles used solely for commercial, political, or charitable purposes. You may not set up a Facebook Page on behalf of another individual or entity unless you are authorized to do so. This includes fan Facebook Pages, as well as Facebook Pages to support or criticize another individual or entity.
According to Facebook's Additional Terms Applicable to Facebook Pages:
Facebook Pages may only be set up for the purpose of promoting a business or other commercial, political, or charitable organization or endeavor (including non-profit organizations, political campaigns, bands and celebrities), and only by an authorized representative of the entity or individual that is the subject of the Facebook Page.

Organizations or groups that promote or glorify hatred, violence, intolerance, racism or discrimination may not set up Facebook Pages. Facebook reserves the right to delete or disable access to any such Facebook Pages.
Clearly, the aforementioned pages are "unofficial" in nature and represent an abuse of Facebook as they were not created for a brand, organization, or business and they are operating in an "unofficial" capacity. The pages and groups listed above are also against Facebook's TOS as they each explicitly promote hatred.

Please remove this hateful content from your platform and deactivate accounts of those taking part in these hate campaigns.

Thank you.
