Jewish News Agency, Argentina: Facebook Groups Promoting Hatred of Israel

(Unofficial translation from the original article in Spanish, found here)

(AJN) It is estimated that there are 150 groups that call for the destruction of the Hebrew State, promoting the killing of Jews and denying the Holocaust. One of these groups has 68 thousand members.

An organization has been formed to break up the largest of these groups.

One report found that Facebook permits hundreds of groups, with tens of thousands of members, to promote hatred towards Israel via its website.

According to the article in the Jerusalem Post, it is difficult to know exactly how many of these groups exist because they can have many different names.

There are more than 150 groups whose names vary between "I hate Israel" and "We hate Israel", and over 60 groups insulting the Hebrew State.

The largest of these groups, "How many people hate Israel?" has more than 68,000 members.

These groups, in the description of their posts, call for the destruction of Israel and the death of Jews, promoting violence and denying the Holocaust (or asking why Hitler did not finish his work).

On April 28, in response, an organization called the Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) launched a campaign to close 20 of the largest groups.

So far, Facebook has only taken action against 6 of the 20 identified groups.
