PAM ! Pam-para,pam-pam ! PAM ! PAM !

Mar 29, 2011

I have a long memory !

Social media site Facebook is allowing a group that calls for a third Palestinian intifada against Israel. Counter groups urge the site to "Stop the hate."
A Facebook page calling for a third intifada against Israel is drawing record numbers of “Likes.” As of March 28, 2011, the total was over 346,000 for the group Third Palestinian Intifada. Objections to this page are growing, coming from Israelis and others around the world who believe it is inciting violence and hatred, in contravention of Facebook's rules. On March 27, 2011, Facebook officials, as reported in the Jerusalem Post "Facebook 'monitoring' page calling for 3rd intifada" by Yakov Lappin, stated that they would monitor the group but that they would not take the page down right now. In contrast to the other protest movements currently sweeping the Middle East and North Africa challenging corrupt regimes, this call for a third intifada is directed against a multicultural and multiracial parliamentary democracy with established civil liberties—Israel. Historically an intifada (the Arabic word means “uprising”) is a violent upheaval. According to the English translation from the original Arabic, this group, on its Facebook page, calls for a "mass march into Israel from neighboring countries."
