Does Facebook’s Zuckerberg want a ‘safe’ and ‘peaceful’ environment for these kind of posts from Muslims?

Facebook6Recently, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a message adding “my voice in support of Muslims in our community and around the world.”

“As a Jew, my parents taught me that we must stand up against attacks on all communities. Even if an attack isn’t against you today, in time attacks on freedom for anyone will hurt everyone,” he wrote.

“If you’re a Muslim in this community, as the leader of Facebook I want you to know that you are always welcome here and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you,” he added.

A little research shows the link at Bare Naked Islam dates back to June 2014, and the page being referenced was apparently torn down and has since been replaced.

Nevertheless, this raises a number of questions that Facebook’s CEO needs to answer.  Does he support this kind of rhetoric?  What about a “safe” and “peaceful” environment for everyone else on the site free from these kind of messages?

These days, Facebook moderators are so busy finding offense in things that aren’t offensive, they completely ignore actual offenses like these.

So, Does Zuckerberg even know these kinds of things are being posted by those he supports?  If he doesn’t know and if he doesn’t support them, will he do something to put a stop to them or will he continue to let his moderators target innocent users?  Inquiring minds really want to know.
