We have good friends who admin a massive, 245,000+ strong "JEWS" page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jews/81970364642) on Facebook. The page used to be found on facebook.com/thejews, but Facebook gave it to some band, apparently. The admins of the page used to share a lot of great, pro-Israel, pro-peace, and other Jewish information with their fans, and Facebook is now preventing their ability to do so. There's two main issues: First of all, if you click the facebook.com/thejews link that the admins created years ago, you can see that it says now goes to a band instead of where it used to, here.
Secondly, the admins no longer have publishing rights. They can no longer share information with their community that they spent years building up. The admins were, however, able to write a note instructing people on what they can do to try to help:
To All Fans and Supporters of the "Jews" Page:Thank you for your help in this matter! We urge you to SHARE THIS ACTION ALERT WIDELY through email, Facebook, Twitter etc.
As we mentioned earlier, we feel Facebook might be censoring us, as we no longer have the ability to post, and clicking to our URL (http://www.facebook.com/thejews) no longer brings you to our page!
This is especially "ironic" considering the number of Islamic terrorist and other antisemitic Facebook pages which directly call for the hatred and murder of Jews all over this platform. We've worked hard to build this page up to over 245,000 "likes" (or fans) and to keep antisemitic, Islamic terrorist, and other vulgar content off of our forum.
We're hoping and praying that Facebook restores our page to its full capacity, ASAP!!
Here's how you can help:
1. Click here: http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=pages_bug
2. Fill out the form as follows:
Subject: Bring back the JEWS page and full admin privileges!
Page Name: Jews
Web address (URL) of Page: http://www.facebook.com/thejews
Description of the issue you are encountering: (Post what you want here about the page, or you can use the following): I can no longer access the page via its URL: http://www.facebook.com/thejews, and the admins are saying that you have revoked their ability to bring me new updates. I love this page for its exciting content and now the admins can't bring us updates? Why do you censor Jews? This page was doing a lot of great work on Jewish/Israel issues, and I don't understand why this is happening? Please bring back this page in its full capacity ASAP! Thank you!
Thanks for your help in bringing us back to full capacity!
Hopefully we'll be back up and running in no time!
-Jews Page Admins
G-d willing, Facebook will do the right thing for a change and restore the Jews page to its full capacity, but we're not holding our breath, especially considering:
- Facebook's history of censoring pro-Israel, Jewish material (see here, here and here)
- Facebook's threats of censoring other content produced by people they arbitrarily "just don't like" (see here)
- The fact that they allow thousands of anti-Israel, Holocaust denial, and other antisemitic and Islamic terrorist pages (see here, here, here, here and many other pages on our site)
- The fact that they submitted to Islam by censoring the "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" groups
We also feel this might also be politically motivated, especially considering one of Randi Zuckerberg's (sister of the founder of Facebook) recent Tweets:
Dress rehearsal for President Obama's Facebook Town Hall tomorrow! It's getting close!As compared to the "Jews" page's final post before the censorship, (linking to one of our articles):
Say whaaaat? Click "LIKE" and SHARE this if you're tired of Obama preaching to Jews! Obama Edumacates Jews about Passover: "It's like Islamic Uprisings, Ya Dig?"Again, we urge you to contact Facebook and ask them to either fix this "glitch" or bring this page back fully. As the admins of the page have written:
We cannot post as admins anymore to the group at large - meaning, we cannot post any more updates. And our main URL: http://www.facebook.com/thejews no longer leads to our page. Basically, these two factors are killing this page and our ability to share information....
