Joining together to combat hate and anti Semitism online
January 27th marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the largest Nazi death camp. Since 2005 it is also the International Holocaust Remembrance Day (IHRD), an annual day of commemoration to honor the victims of the Nazi era.
The Nazis didn't have Internet access. There was no Facebook, no Twitter, no YouTube to help the Nazis deliver their hate message to the masses.
The Nazis may be gone but their hate message remains alive and well. Anti Semitisim today hides behind anti Zionism. Those that spread this message of hate do a remarkable job spreading their wrath online. Social media sites such Facebook, Youtube and Twitter become vehicles in delivering messages of hate and incitement.
This Holocaust remembrance day Giyus.org would like to launch a community initiative to combat hate online. Social media sites have pledged to remove online hate and terrorist groups but with anti Israel rhetoric and anti Semitism on the rise, their moderators have been unable to monitor the sheer number of messages.
As individuals and a community we need to stand together and report hate spreading rhetoric. We need your help to do that. Please send us links of users, videos, groups, or events spreading anti Semitism and anti Zionism online. We would verify the information and create a periodical list of hateful profiles and content. We would then ask the help of our community members to report those as spreading hate online.
Links and information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your support.
