Israeli rights NGO to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg: Don’t kill us

zuck-eyesOn Sunday, Israel National News reported that Shurat HaDin — the Israel Law Center — has started a campaign to raise funds for billboards to be placed near the multi-million dollar home of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.  The message of the billboards is clear: “Don’t kill us.”

According to the group, Facebook is being used by terrorists to foment and incite attacks against Israelis.

“Since the major escalation in Arab terrorist attacks in Israel began at the start of October last year, Israelis have consistently complained about the use of social media to incite terrorism and glorify ‘martyrdom,’ and the lack of enforcement by social media companies,” the report says.

Israel National News added:

Indeed, analysts and Israeli officials alike have noted that the current wave of terror was preceded by months of ceaseless, often extremely graphic Arab online incitement, including videos and even instructions on how to best stab, slash or disembowel innocent victims. Since the terror wave began that incitement has only worsened.

Perhaps the worst offender in this regard is Facebook, which (now) faces legal action over its slow, minimal reaction to the reams of anti-Semitic incitement uploaded daily.

Now, the Israeli rights NGO which is leading the legal campaign against Facebook incitement is taking the fight directly to the digital giant’s CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The group — which has filed a lawsuit against Facebook on behalf of some 20,000 Israelis — has started an online fundraising campaign to secure the $30,000 needed for the billboard.

Surat HaDin released the following video discussing the need for the billboard:

“If he doesn’t see the incitement, we will display it opposite his California home,” the group said.

“The phenomenon of incitement on Facebook has become one of the characteristics of the current wave of terror in Israel,” the statement added. “Facebook pages which show how most effectively to kill Jews, include detailed instruction and encouragement for the killers on social media networks.

“On Facebook, you can find guidelines for the murderer: For example, to spray the knife with K300 (poison) prior to stabbing the Jew, or instructions as to where on the body to stab so that the murder will be most effective; and also encouragement for the murderers and their transformation into cultural heroes.”

Recently, the organization released a video documenting Facebook’s bias after it conducted an experiment to see how it would treat two nearly identical pages.  Results of that experiment can be seen here.
