    The new “Third Palestinian Rising” page
    The new “Third Palestinian Rising” page

    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.

    Critics said the page was "a call to arms" for Palestinian terrorists and accused Facebook of providing a forum for further conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis.

    Although a spokeswoman for the social networking site said earlier that upsetting comments or content would not alone be "a reason to remove the discussion", links to the page now redirect to the homepage.

    However the creators of a page, set up to petition Facebook to monitor anti-Israel abuse better, warned against complacency. A new "Third Palestinian Rising" page has been set up and has already attracted more than 4,000 supporters.
