Facebook has blocked a page calling for violent uprisings and a "Third Palestinian Intifada" following complaints from users and Jewish organisations.
Nearly 350,000 people had registered support for the Arabic language page, which people to rise up against Israel on Nakba Day - May 15 - the date on which Palestinians mourn the establishment of Israel.
The Community Security Trust (CST) and the Board of Deputies have added their names to the growing list of individuals and organisations calling for Facebook to ban a page deemed “a call to arms” for Palestinian terrorists.
The creators of the page are urging violent uprisings on May 15 or Nakba Day, the date on which Palestinians mourn the establishment of Israel.
As Yaniv “Nev” Schulman points out, he’s got a fair amount in common with Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg.
Both are 26, from Jewish families in New York and live enviable lives surrounded by the latest in geek-dream software. And for both, being part of what Schulman calls “the first Facebook generation” has had unimaginable consequences.
