Facebook UnLikes Third Intifada Page

Haaretz Reports the Good News -- Facebook trashes the "third intifada"
The Facebook page calling for a third Palestinian intifada was taken down on Tuesday, after widespread calls for it to be removed.

On the original page, Palestinians are urged to take to the streets after Friday prayers on May 15 and begin an uprising in the vain of the first two popular uprisings. "Judgment Day will be brought upon us only once the Muslims have killed all of the Jews," reads the call. The page had more than 340,000 fans.

Although the page was removed, a new page already exists in its place with the same name of "Third Palestinian Intifada."

The Anti Defamation League had filed an official complaint against Facebook for allowing the page to remain up.

In addition, Minister Yuli Edelstein wrote a letter to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, warning that the page includes calls to kill Jews and to liberate Jerusalem through violence.

The page incites to violence and violates Facebook content regulations, wrote Edelstein. (Haaretz)
On the "Third Intifada" Facebook page, it stated:

"If Facebook closes this page, all Muslims will boycott it forever!"

Kudos to Facebook for not giving in to Islamic Terror (like youtube does all the time).

It is good news - Haman is hanged, but just as in the Purim story, the damage was already done.

The IDF and Israeli police still should be עתידים ליום הזה (May 15th).

It is already back up. And all the Pro-Palestine pages have adopted the logo.

And frankly, whether it is up or down, people are going to do what they are going to do...

There are actually six such pages up now. I don't know if the solution wasn't worse than the problem.
