On Tuesday, I had the distinct pleasure of discussing a new book I wrote with Adina Kutnicki, an investigative journalist based in Israel, with my good friend Josh Bernstein.  That book, “Banned: How Facebook enables Islamic jihad,” is now available and can be purchased at the WND Superstore and at Amazon.com.

Without further ado, here’s the video, in which I discuss what prompted the book and some of my personal experiences with the social media site:

In the video, I mentioned how I had been repeatedly banned over posts that were forged.  You can read about that here.

Many say that Facebook is a private company and can do whatever it darn well pleases.  Set aside for a moment the fact that those who use that defense for Facebook never use it for Christian bakers who don’t want to make gay wedding cakes.  That argument is completely irrelevant in this situation.

Adina and I discuss what actually allows this censorship to take place in the book, and you may be surprised to learn what’s at the bottom of it.

Worse yet, congressional candidates in both major parties get thousands of dollars from Facebook.  Yet, believe it or not, they’re partly responsible for this.

Want more?  Read Faye Higbee’s review of the book here, then go here and buy it.  Once you’ve read it, go inform your elected leaders and get busy…
