Social Media giant Facebook has temporarily blocked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s eldest account over anti-muslims post. Yair, tweeted on Sunday that Facebook blocked his page for 24 hours over apparent anti-Muslim posts and called the leading social network a “dictatorship”.
In a message posted on Thursday on his Facebook page after deadly Palestinian attacks, Yair Netanyahu had called for “all Muslims (to) leave” Israel. “Do you know where there are no attacks? In Iceland and in Japan where coincidentally there are no Muslims,” the prime minister’s son wrote. In another post he wrote that there were only two possible solutions for peace, either “all Jews leave (Israel) or all Muslims leave”. “I prefer the second option,” he added. His comments came after two soldiers were shot dead on Thursday at a central West Bank bus station near a settlement.
Yair Netanyahu said that he has been barred over a post in which he called Facebook out for preventing “free speech” by removing several of his previous messages in which called for revenge against Palestinians for a terror attack last week. “Unbelievable. Facebook blocks me for 24 hours for simply criticizing it! Thought police,” he wrote on Twitter, apparently because he was unable to post on Facebook.
“The thought police of the radical progressives at Facebook have reached me as well! Hamas, Hezbollah and the Iranian regime have official pages on Facebook. There are also endless pages calling for the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews. Thousands of violent and extreme left-wing posts against me and my family, including threats of physical violence and immoral murder threats.” Netanyahu Junior charged. “All of these do not violate Facebook’s community rules,” he complained.
Facebook had no immediate comment on the decision.
