2.5 Million Muslims Threaten to Leave Facebook

While some Muslims call for the death of Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook Staff, others are apparently threatening to leave the platform.  Since most of the antisemitic and jihadist content we find is coming from Muslims and since Facebook doesn't do anything proactively about it, this might actually a positive step in its removal.  It's important to note that Facebook, with its 500 million members, probably does not care about 2.5 million members threatening to leave.  One can only imagine how little they care about our concerns, too, considering there are so few Jews and supporters of Israel on the platform, which is dominated with viral jihadist, antisemitic, and anti-Israel content.

Thank you to Daled Amos for bringing this NBC report to our attention:  
2.5 million customers mad enough are threatening a boycott.  The group claims to represent Muslims who are mad about the removal of four Facebook pages.

These are the pages no longer available on the site:
  • Facebook.com/Rassoul.Allaah
  • Facebook.com/Logo.Ramadan
  • LikesFacebook.com/I.Love.Mohammed
  • Facebook.com/Quran.Lovers
The deadline is a week from today.  The group claims it has hundreds of thousands of users who are ready to jump ship to another site called madina.com, which is a Islamic social networking site.

For now, the group is trying to get its message out by posting the same comment over and over on Facebook blogs.
Facebook Admins, Moderators, Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, Sheryl Sandberg, and Matt Cohler; Although you have attended the world's best communication skills courses you have been most successful in growing great hatred and hostility between you and Muslims around the world, but seriously this time you have caused an almost unrepairable damage.
They go on to list their demands:
  1. Reactivating the four pages that have been disabled
  2. Adding a Facebook Term that illegalizes disrespecting all Islamic religious symbols, including Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the Qur'an, as well as Prophet Moses (PBUH), Prophet Jesus (PBUH), and the original Bible
  3. Disabling any Facebook Page, Group, or Event that shows direct or indirect disrespect towards Islamic religious symbols
We have a message into the Facebook press folks to see if they have a comment on the movement.    We also have no idea why the four sites were taken down in the first place.  Hopefully Facebook will answer our inquiry soon.
Check back for updates.
