Facebook sued by relatives of Palestinian attack victims for $1 billion in US court


Having already proven how the social media giant discriminates against Jews & Israelis, the NGO legal group seeks punitive action over what is seen as Facebook’s reluctance to help track potential Islamic militants & curb Palestinian incitement to violence.



A group of Israelis and Americans bereaved in Palestinian attacks said on Monday they would seek $1 billion in damages from Facebook Inc. for alleged complicity, as part of a suit filed in the United States against the social media giant.

“My son is a hero. He made me proud. My son died as a Martyr defending Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. …Allah willing, all of them will follow this path, all the youth of Palestine. Allah be praised.”

Those were the words of Mohammed Taraireh’s mother to Palestinian media hours after he butchered a 13-year-old Israeli girl, Hallel Yaffe Ariel (pictured). Mohammed was shot and killed by security officials responding to Hallel’s screams.

While Mrs. Taraireh proudly owned her son’s savagery, official Palestinian Authority media suggested the attack might not have taken place, and that Israeli forces killed Mohammed for no reason.

Under public scrutiny Facebook backsteps on Anti-Israel Hate Pages

University of California is the 1st statewide university to consider adopting a set of principles against intolerance, but the draft fails to explicitly address anti-Semitism & the demonization of Israel.

By News Agencies & Israel Hayom Staff

About two dozen people gave input to the board of regents at their meeting at UC Irvine about the proposed “Statement of Principles Against Intolerance,” a broad declaration that free speech advocates contended would amount to censorship. Continue Reading »

After French court ruling, Twitter clamps down on hate-speech & anti-Semitism

After the French court ruled Twitter must remove certain hate-speech & anti-Semitic content, social media companies, like YouTube & Facebook have implemented stricter rules against hate speech.



A little over a year after a French court forced Twitter to remove some anti-Semitic content, experts say the ruling has had a ripple effect, leading other Internet companies to act more aggressively against hate speech in an effort to avoid lawsuits.


The 2013 ruling by the Paris Court of Appeals settled a lawsuit brought the year before by the Union of Jewish Students of France over the hashtag #UnBonJuif, which means “a good Jew” and which was used to index thousands of anti-Semitic comments that violated France’s law against hate speech.

Palestinians: We Want You Dead, Even If You Support Us

As the result of decades of ongoing incitement, Palestinians & Arabs can no longer distinguish between those who support them & those who stand against them. Peace is impossible unless Palestinians stop inciting their people against Jews and Israel.

by Khaled Abu Toameh



Two incidents that took place at university campuses in the West Bank in the past few days serve as a reminder that some Palestinians have no problem attacking or threatening even those who support and try to help them.

Pro-Palestinian and anti-Zionist Israeli journalist Amira Hass was thrown out of Bir Zeit University campus, near Ramallah, only because she is an Israeli Jew.

By Dr. Richard Swier


In response to a new online video documenting the anti-Semitic messaging and extreme anti-Israel activism of a campus hate group at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is again demanding that FAU publicly condemn anti-Semitic bigotry on campus and take other steps to remedy the hostile environment.

Less than a year ago, FAU was the site of a highly publicized incident, where the campus’s Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) organization posted hundreds of anti-Semitic fake eviction notices on student dorms. Continue Reading »
