The Jewish Agency for Israel has been forced to suspend all comments on its Facebook page after it was vandalised with offensive remarks and images.

On Monday, it placed a message on its Facebook page stating that postings on its online wall had been “temporarily prohibited”.

It said: “Due to the flotilla incident in Israel today our Facebook page was vandalised with anti-Israel and anti-Jewish wall postings.

“For that reason, fan postings on the wall have been temporarily prohibited. We will do our best to remove comments with similar sentiments as soon as possible.”

A further message said that images of Hitler were posted and that the culprits had been reported to Facebook security team.

Despite the temporary suspension a message reading “Death to Israel” appeared in Hebrew and Arabic on its discussion page as well as images of burning flags in its photo section.
