Holocaust survivors ask Facebook to ban denial pages

July 28, 2011

According to the Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights organization, a “senior VP of Facebook offered to ‘keep the dialogue open’ on the matter but restated his company’s position: ‘… we also think it’s important to maintain consistency in our policies, which don’t generally prohibit people from making statements about historical events, no matter how ignorant the statement or how awful the event.”

A Facebook spokesman told CNET then that: “We are monitoring these groups and if the discussion among members degrades to the point of promoting hate or violence, despite whatever disclaimer the group description provides, we will take them down. This has happened in the past, especially when controversial groups are publicized.”             [you mean, the agent provocateurs are sent in. lol too obvious.]

Earlier this year, Facebook agreed to remove a page that called on Palestinians to take up arms against Israel, after the Israeli government appealed to Facebook.

Right I’m off to do some delousing and sit in my air raid shelter. Nobody will be killed in the process.
