Facebook shut down a pro-Israel page with more than 77 million followers that were allegedly the victim of a “cyberterrorism” campaign by “radical Islamic” groups that posted more than one million hate messages, which were later denounced as “hate speech,” prompting the removal of the page from the social network.
“Jerusalem Prayer Group” (JPT) founder Mike Evans said critics bombarded the page with “over a million” comments, CBN reported.
“There was an organized attempt by radical Islamic organizations to achieve this objective. They posted over a million comments on our site. That was a complete scam and fraud. It was a very clever, deceptive plan by Islamic radicals,” Evans said.
The attack came amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, and other Islamic terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip. As CBN reported, Michael Evans Jr. had been using the Facebook page leading thousands of people in daily prayer for Israel and reporting on the current crisis in the Middle East.
The Israeli news portal Israel National News said the page was “flooded with anti-Semitic comments,” including photos and quotes from Hitler so that users could complain that it violated the social networking giant’s policies and thus be blocked.
Evans also said when interviewed that he received the unexpected news that Facebook had removed the page, just as he was in Israel ready to host a TV special filled with well-known personalities.
The only message Evans received from Facebook was that the case was “closed” and to “please consider this decision final.” The JPG founder repeatedly tried to contact some social network authority to have some more detailed and logical response but had no luck so far.
Faced with the impotence of not getting answers from the internet giant, Evans has approached politicians, including Republican Senators Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, Jared Kushner, and his “dear friend,” former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, to help him with this “fraudulent scheme to damage our good work,” as reported to CBN.
As reported, many Facebook and YouTube posts directed people on how to log in and report the JPT Facebook page to Facebook and how to pressure the social network to prevent the JPT page from existing on its platform.
Facebook has been criticized countless times for censoring, blocking, and removing conservative sites while openly allowing violent leftists to operate on the network.
This seems to be another perfect example of how Facebook enables the development of cyber terrorism based on racism.
Evans promoted the event he is organizing in Jerusalem, reporting that it “will be released to the global media to counter the lies that are being told about the war. Israel is indeed winning the war, but Israel is also losing the media war through secular leftist media that is believing the lies of radical Islam.”
