Anti-Israel Facebook groep met meer dan 1 miljoen 'Likes'

Social media zoals Facebook kunnen mensen dichter bij elkaar brengen, zoals Face the Bridge of Palestine Loves Israel, Israel Loves Palestine en de vele varianten daarop, maar vaak is het ook gewoon een nieuw kanaal om de vijandschap en haat te koesteren, zoals onderstaand voorbeeld.
Helaas is Facebook vaak laks met het verwijderen van haatsites en antisemitische of racistische uitlatingen.

An Arabic-language anti-Israel Facebook group passed 1,100,000 likes, the Anti-Defamation League reported. The anti-Israel group was founded in 2011 by Egyptian students, and its largest demographic remains in the 18-24 year-old range.

Haters of Israel,” the ADL said in a blog post, “functions as a popular forum for those who either identify as haters of Israel or who appreciate the wide appeal generated by the page; some use the page to advertise their own pages and profiles.”

The majority of posts don’t address anti-Israel topics directly, although many do cover anti-Israel and anti-Semitic themes. The fact that most of the posters cover other topics is “a testimony to the fundamental popularity such a title has in much of the Arab world,” the ADL said.

There are several other popular anti-Israel Facebook groups in Arabic, including one that serializes chapters of the notorious anti-Semitic forgery, The Pro­to­cols of the Learned Elders of Zion, which is widely read in parts of the Arab world.
