Facebook is Censoring and Blocking Israel Supporters: How You Can Help

If you know of any Facebook employees, or if you can help find them online via Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, etc, please consider connecting with them and sending them the following, or something like it: 

Dear *******

An organization I support is currently being censored and blocked on Facebook sharing photos of the Israeli Air Force.

To read more about it, please see:  http://is.gd/fcensor

For 30 days, they cannot reach their network of over 300,000 that they built on the platform. I feel a terrible mistake has been made, as I count on their updates for news and information, especially regarding the current crisis in Israel.

Could you please help? If so, please see what you can do, and/or contact David Appletree (the founder of the JIDF) to discuss the issue directly, here: david@thejidf.org

Thank you!


Your Name
Thanks to all who help and agree that this is an outrage. While we  have some Facebook contacts, we have yet to hear back from them, sadly. It's a shame Facebook has no quick appeals process, as this happens quite often to us and others. The standard reason they give is that it was some sort of automated mistake. We have spoken to several attorneys and experts in computer science who agree what we posted was not remotely against Facebook's TOS. We hate to assume the worse (that Facebook is simply censoring views they don't like, especially since they proudly support people's "right" to post hateful content, such as Holocaust Denial on the platform), but we find the timing of this to be very suspect. We're hoping to reach a human being at Facebook that can help, and that our content is restored and that this block ends soon. Thank you for your help!
