According to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, “love” will defeat ISIS, the militant Islamic group that has taken large areas of Iraq and Syria, brutally murdering anyone who holds a view different from theirs, Breitbart.com reported Tuesday, citing a post the tech mogul made on his own website.
“Each of these attacks were carried out with a goal to spread fear and distrust, and turn members of a community against each other,” he said, addressing recent attacks in Belgium, Turkey and Pakistan.
The “only sustainable way to fight back” against these militants is to “create a world” where everyone “feels cared for and loved,” he added.
On Easter Sunday, at least 70 people were murdered and 300 more were injured when a Taliban faction that supports ISIS detonated a bomb in a park filled with children. The group said it had specifically targeted Christians in that attack.
As our own T.K. Whiteman reported, ISIS militants are plotting to murder Jewish children in Turkey. Zuckerberg, by the way, is Jewish.
Islamic militants routinely post threats of violence, rape and murder on Facebook, yet the site does nothing. Just ask Pam Geller. In fact, Zuckerberg’s site routinely tells users that threats of violence do not violate their community standards.
According to the Religion of Peace blog, there have been 24 attacks in the week of March 19 – 25, resulting in 200 deaths and 395 more wounded.
Militant Islamic terrorism is nothing new, and Facebook’s response in recent years has primarily been to target those who report on it or those who oppose the idea of militant jihad. This, by the way, is the subject of a book that Adina Kutnicki, an investigative journalist based in Israel, and I are currently working on. That book is tentatively set to be published sometime this fall.
Zuckerberg is clearly living in a dream world if he thinks he can stop global militant jihad with a Coke and a stirring chorus of “Kumbaya.”
