I’m Banned From Facebook . . . For Political Reasons: HOW YOU CAN HELP

By Debbie Schlussel

This afternoon, my Facebook account  was deactivated.  I do not know why, though it appears it is for political reasons–because of repeated protests by extremist Muslims.  I’ve repeatedly been targeted by extremist Muslims on Facebook, whose many anti-Semitic attacks I’ve had to report and delete from my Facebook Fan Page.

Since Facebook does not give a reason, it appears this was done to censor my views.  On the other hand, an anonymous Facebook employee spoke out and noted that most Facebook employees have access to view all FB e-mail messages.  Yesterday, I got a FB e-mail from my FB friend Jennifer Powell notifying me that her FB page, “Profile Islamic Men in Airports” (of which I was a fan), was deleted by FB.  I responded that I would write about it on my site.  Was a Facebook employee snooping in my e-mail and upset that I would expose yet another example of Facebook censorship of those of us who believe in real national security, fighting the Islamic threat to America, and protecting our borders?  That could be the reason.

Our friends at the JIDF, including JIDF founder David Appletree, have pointed out that several Facebook groups, pages, and accounts have been deactivated by FB because they were pro-Jewish and/or pro-Israel, including several JIDF groups.  And Facebook took down the “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” Page, pandering to violent Muslims. As JIDF Founder Appletree says, “They selectively and subjectively ‘enforce’ their terms of service however they see fit. Their terms of service enforcement is entirely inconsistent.”

Or maybe it was my review of “The Social Network” movie, which the Facebookies didn’t like.  While I wrote that I didn’t like the movie because it admittedly made some things up and I don’t know which was fact and which was fiction, my review featured less than flattering material about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.  He’s known to be paranoid and vindictive, as are some of his very protective employees.  Maybe that was it. As the JIDF pointed out, Randi Zuckerberg, Mark Zuckerberg’s sister who heads up Facebook’s marketing, has already threatened on Twitter that since she didn’t like a particular bar, its Facebook page might be “accidentally” deleted. Hmmm . . .

But, again, since Facebook gave me no warning and no reason–that’s how arbitrary they are there–I have no idea what’s going on or why my account was disabled and deactivated.  I don’t know what other reason it could be.  And we know that while plenty of anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, pro-HAMAS, and pro-Hezbollah groups and accounts remain up at Facebook, my account is now down.

**** Please Note: I am referring to my personal FB account, not the Debbie Schlussel Fan Page (Click the “Like” Button to join), which remains up (though I am now not allowed to access it), and you can also follow me on Twitter. ****

I have submitted an appeal and a press inquiry, and we’ll see if they respond.  But, in the meantime, I hope you’ll e-mail Facebook:  press@facebook.com and ask why they censor those who tell the truth about the Islamic threat, but allow these groups and accounts to remain up:

I am going to complain to FB.

Fred Taub on October 6, 2010 at 5:03 pm

My wife set me up with a FB account, and in a matter of hours every douchebag (ex-wife included) I never wanted to see again now wanted to be my ‘friend’. I don’t need FB any more than I need to good plow horse or a buggy whip. I deactivated it myself a couple of days later. Deb…you don’t even need this because great minds think alike and will find one-another without modern gimmics. FB is nothing more than Flavor-of-the-Month.

    My wife set me up with a FB account, and in a matter of hours every douchebag (ex-wife included) I never wanted to see again now wanted to be my ‘friend.

    That’s why I would never take out a FaceBook account. I was kicked off a Joan Baez fan website, some years ago, when I refused to put on sackcloth and ashes because Sarkozy had been elected President of France.

Here is something that was written back on 3/14/2008.

Just additional information about Mark Zuckerberg/Facebook and what appears to be their consistent anti-Jewish policy.

PatsPFS on October 6, 2010 at 5:07 pm

I think its a pure shame that people with any common sense would treat Jew’s the wat they do, I’m not a Jew but a chrisitan and i know my bible very well and i know that the Almity God says…. If u curse a Jeww i will curse you, Amd i’m very proud to say that i love the Jew’s every single one. You are God’s chosen 1′s altho he loves us all the same, So people better be careful what they say not because of fb but because of God. My LOVE TO ALL OF THE jEW’S…. Oh and by the way nobody but nobody can ever take Israel away, its the promise land to the Jew’s !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Theresa Scoggins on October 6, 2010 at 5:14 pm

Debbie!

This REALLY pisses me off! I just sent Fb an email!
I guess we can’t hurt their “islamist, nazi” feelings. But, it’s very much okay for them to slander the rest of us!
Best wishes always!

Darrell Asplund on October 6, 2010 at 5:16 pm

But DEBBIE the same who close accounts of truth tellers say the media is controlled by JOOOOOOOOOOOS- don’t youahve connections??

sameover at Jootube- David Duke neo nazis Muslims showing themselves killing USA soldiers all that is OK good stuff!!

Rick Sanchez says cross a JEW get FIRED!!! YES by BIGOTS- JEWS are so bigoted they hired the Homo Cubano and that’s the real reason they fired him- YES RACIST!!

and GEERT on trial for saying the words of KORAN and liking (how could he) ISRAEL- YES the JEWISH MEDIA will silence him?

OY VEY and ACH TUNG- the NAZIS have created backwards world
two plus two is five and black is white
truth is hate speech
and hate speech is RELIGION of PISS

Isahiah62 on October 6, 2010 at 5:21 pm

While I don’t agree with your views (or those of the extreme Islamics either) I do agree that Facebook is being unfair.
I think that if they’re going to attack one religious belief they should do the same to all religious beliefs on their site.
Religion has no place in public society these days and if they’re going to shut down one they should just shut them all down and then we’d all be even and equal humans.

Sheldon on October 6, 2010 at 5:28 pm

I just emailed to Facebook about this at the email address linked to above. G-d willing, this outrage will be reversed.

JeffE on October 6, 2010 at 5:35 pm

I support your being able to be on Facebook and am opposed to the attack on your freedom of speech. You should be able to use Facebook for any purpose you desire.

At the same time, I don’t have a very high opinion of Facebook in general. Most of the comments on Facebook are pretty stupid, and it takes young people and some older people away from studying and doing worthwhile things, and instead wasting time on Facebook’s mostly stupid gimmicks.

The ‘friends’ is one of the silliest things contained there. Some people are ‘friends’ with their bosses, and lo and behold one day, their ‘friends’ fire them. Devices like Facebook and Twitter become substitutes for real social relationships and take time away from worthwhile activities.

Little Al on October 6, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Why is it that Jews or those who side with Jews are targetted? I have been on many forum that are for those who support Israel and the number of anti-semetic people who hate Jews and Israel is ammazing…. there were a few decent people who put their views across stating what they saw but on the whole it appears that you have been taken off as you do not support these people…

Jeff on October 6, 2010 at 5:56 pm

Nothing worse than a dictatorship. The more control that is given to people these days shows their true colors. Communist, socialist, Marxist, dictatorial, scum of the Earth. See what happens when people obtain money and power, they become controlling because they are truly weak and cannot handle the truth. “Vengeance is mine saith the Lord!”

Amedeo Bianchi on October 6, 2010 at 5:59 pm

I need to qualify my prior comment slightly. Facebook can be useful for locating people you have lost touch with, e.g. people in high school, etc., or groups of people with similar interests. Other than that, it is hard for me to see much value in it.

Little Al on October 6, 2010 at 6:00 pm

this is a jaw-dropping outrage. and yet fb allows those hateful anti-Semitic pages to stay open for business-as-usual?

Friend Of Ol' Allah on October 6, 2010 at 6:05 pm

Done! And passed on to friends.

Michelle on October 6, 2010 at 6:08 pm

JIDF reported yesterday that the MemriTV channel on Facebook was also suspended. What gives?

Betty on October 6, 2010 at 6:16 pm

I also was dumped by FB a few months back I went on a muslim web site devoted to a cleric who also was a known terrorist leader who recently died. I decided to pays my respects by saying “RIP and Good Riddance” I think all fifty of them reported me.
FB said I was harassing and threatening then deleted my account.

Dave on October 6, 2010 at 6:20 pm

I just sent them an email on your behalf. And by the way, I’m not on facebook. I think it’s stupid personally and have better things to do than to connect with people I don’t have anything to do with in real life.

Karen on October 6, 2010 at 6:38 pm

Well, I guess we have a good idea of Facebook’s agenda. To take down the US & Israel and create a world of Shariah Law.

Isn’t there something that can be done legally to stop this? If you need to have me sign a petition, I will do it. No problem.

Stephanie DeCou on October 6, 2010 at 6:49 pm

Even disregarding the politics of this disgrace, I am not on any of these so-called “social networks” (i.e. Facebook, Twitter). And with this whole hubbub, it hardens my resolve not to touch these (especially Facebook) with a 10-foot pole.

ConcernedPatriot on October 6, 2010 at 6:55 pm

Betty writes, “JIDF reported yesterday that the MemriTV channel on Facebook was also suspended. What gives?”

The report I saw referred to their YouTube channel. I checked earlier and yes, it’s true; MEMRI TV’s account has been suspended. For those who don’t know, the Middle East Media Research Institute translates articles and media broadcasts from the Arab world, Turkey and Iran so we can know what they’re telling their own people and not rely on their sanitized English propaganda.

Lots of folks in the region have been working to undermine MEMRI’s work for years. The same holds for Palestinian Media Watch. One Palestinian response was to create PalestINE Media Watch to capture some of those searching for the real PMW. As much as we’re trying to get the truth out, our enemies are trying to thwart us.

Raymond in DC on October 6, 2010 at 7:27 pm

I am sorry to hear this Debbie. Keep up the good fight!

Christopher Logan on October 6, 2010 at 7:42 pm

That’s outrageous. I was on your friends list too. I wonder if anybody else has had their profiles taken down as well?

It’s funny how facebook will delete you but they won’t delete the disgusting trolls who seek out and harass grieving families on memorial pages. It takes them forever to take action against those people.

Speaks volumes about Zuckerberg’s state of mind.

Steve on October 6, 2010 at 8:02 pm

Checked and you are still on my friend’s list and your profile is still up on Facebook.
The last posting on the page was from 6 hours ago–”Debbie Schlussel The Real Problem with Public Schools: That the Good Teachers Are Not Allowed to Do This to their Students. . .”
Just sent you a message on Facebook to see if it would go through, and it did. So it seems your account is active in some form. Perhaps it is only a temprary ban?
Read someone’s account (maybe it was a news reporter) who was banned for adding friends, I think, but he got his account back.

MH on October 6, 2010 at 8:19 pm

I went to an offensive “I hate Israel” Facepage. Called the owner of the page a “Semen sucking sap.”

Let’s see how long it takes for me to be booted.

Jonathan Grant on October 6, 2010 at 8:33 pm

The JIDF???

Aren’t they the people who are responsible for David Duke’s Youtube account being canceled recently? Maybe this is the revenge of the white nationalists.

Terran on October 6, 2010 at 8:38 pm

Debbie, I just emailed FB. Keep up the good work, haganah Yisrael!

Burning Monk on October 6, 2010 at 8:43 pm

Not only do the Muslims hate you Debbie but the Jews do too. You are a pathetic piece of white trash spewing hatred from every pore in your body. I applaud Facebook for stopping your spread of hate you pathetic piece of crap!

udeserveitdebbie on October 6, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    “Udeserveitdebbie” is not only a moron, but a coward. If you are going to write such garbage, then have the guts to sign your name, Raghead. Of course, cowardice runs through the Islamic people, as shown by their intentional killing of women and children. Only a pathetic group of people who follow the teachings of a drug addicted, illiterate, pedophile like “Mohammed.” What kind of man marries and has sex with a nine year old (Eight years old using a Western calendar). Check it out in the Satanic book known as the Koran.

    Jonathan Grant on October 6, 2010 at 9:21 pm

I notice the odd things about FB. I think the banning process is largely user-controlled and there are simply more far left d-bags and radicals on Facebook than Israel defenders. More complaints= action. I’ve noticed it because I blog a lot, and if a post has ‘Muslim’ in the title it will have a ‘spam report’ attached to it and be pulled or prevented from being linked to again, whereas others sail through.

Mika Galipeau on October 6, 2010 at 9:03 pm

I was a member of several pro Israel groups and I saw several anti semitic things on facebook that really bothered me.

Heres my story.
I was a moderator for a facebook app called warbook, a textbased war game played at one time by over 100 thousand people across the world. anyway one day a guy started harassing a 17 year old girl, he said very sexually inappropriate things to her.

several people reported him to facebook and they did nothing. finally I said something to him and he turned out to be a mentally ill person who obsesses and attacks people relentlessly. He even found out where I work and called my work to try and get me fired!

A jewish man named Mike Snurzman spoke up about his actions and Owen said ” I am sure you like baked good, especially them old german cookies from the middle of the century.” he also made several jokes about “easy bake ovens”. when confronted he lied and said it wasnt anti semitic but to anyone with a brain it was obvious. this obviously precluded facebook employees.

Somehow he has conned facebook into believing that I am the stalker/harasser, despite a facebook group with over 100 members (all people who know me) thats dedicated to me getting my account back. Its called FREE RYAN BELLEROSE. Nobody at facebook will do anything even though we have several PAGES of Owens actions complete with screen shots of his abuse as well as links. He has had at least 6 accounts banned for abusing other users mostly women yet somehow he has kept his two accounts Owen Durham and Owen Kovachs.

He continues harassing people until today, despite being reported several times. facebooks customer service hasnt even looked into it.

so I doubt they will do anything other than send you a form letter to make you think they looked into this. the truth is that they dont actually investigate because that would take work, there is no way to actually communicate withe them as they have made it impossible to get in contact with anyone other than by email which only gets you a form letter anyway.

Good luck I have been without facebook for over a year now.

Ryan Bellerose on October 6, 2010 at 10:14 pm

Debbie, I am one of the administrators of Russian jews on Facebook, you are also an administrator there and several other people including Igor who is a founder of the group. Our group was banned today and every administrator from that group including you. I suspect every administrator which was associated with Russian jews page was banned by facebook, since we are very proIsrael, projewish group, and speak loudly against Obama policy toward Israel. There is a possibility you were banned because you associated with our group which had almost 11000 fans. Please spread the word around, you can contact me or Igor.

Boris on October 6, 2010 at 10:18 pm

Keep us posted. I think facebook, twitter, digg, bitly and some other sites have been compromised for political reasons. I would say hijacked, and you can bet the White House is behind it.

Why did you ban Debbie Schlussel’s account? Yes I’ve known she has posted outrageous things about muslims. But they are true!!! There are alot of Muslim groups that have posted things against Jewish people? Why aren’t those anti-semetic groups banned as well?


Regards,
Matthew L. Scholnick

Matthew on October 6, 2010 at 11:22 pm

I felt like saying that America is a christian nation that follows the constitution influenced by judeo-christian values and NOT the muslim Sharia. But that would probably get me in trouble too.

Matthew on October 6, 2010 at 11:25 pm

too many islamo-nazis…we gotta push back at every opportunity

leo pucketti on October 6, 2010 at 11:30 pm

I just created the “Tell Facebook to reinstate Debbie Schlussel’s account” group. Please try to join, but I must approve. Unfortunately the group may only be seen by my friends, so friend me if you cannot see the group. Hopefully we can dismantle the group shortly. Someone else might want to start a group for Profiling Islamic Males in Airports (I also a fan).

I wanted the group name to include mention of the Islamofacsists who used Facebook but I was afraid Facebook might delete my account. The have a rule that groups targeting others will have the group founder’s account deleted. However in a couple of days I might just do it anyway. This is their rule:

Note: groups that attack a specific person or group of people (e.g. racist, sexist, or other hate groups) will not be tolerated. Creating such a group will result in the immediate termination of your Facebook account.

David Makowsky on October 6, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    @David Makowsky
    whats ur profile pic bc I wanna add you?

    Matthew on October 7, 2010 at 12:10 am

      Matthew – I am not sure what you mean by “profile pic”? Is it my Facebook picture? If so I am not sure how to get that to you.

      David Makowsky on October 7, 2010 at 1:04 am

    I have just opened up the “Tell Facebook to reinstate Debbie Schlussel’s account” group so everyone and anyone should be able to see it and join.

    David Makowsky on October 7, 2010 at 7:53 am

I don’t have a Facebook account, have never even looked at a Facebook webpage, and could care less about Facebook. Facebook is for foolish, mindless, gutless, souless, sub-cretins, who know absolutely nothing about art, culture, society, history, science, technology, finance, music, literature, or any other topic of importance. In short, Facebook is for for Fools…..fools who do not know how to think, how to create, or how to live. So naturally, Facebook sponsors Islamoscumbags and Muslimaniacs, and fosters anti-Jewish and anti-Israel positions.

Ralph Adamo on October 7, 2010 at 12:25 am

    i’ll pit my IQ and capacity for independent thought against yours any day of the week, you elitist jerk. ‘independent thinkers’ don’t generally spend so much time judging others they know nothing about as ‘foolish, mindless, gutless, souless, sub-cretins, who know absolutely nothing about art, culture, society, history, science, technology, finance, music, literature, or any other topic of importance. In short, Facebook is for for Fools…..fools who do not know how to think, how to create, or how to live.’

    hatred in any form is despicable. you’ve fooled yourself into believing you’re vastly superior to mass quantities of people you don’t know, for who knows what reason?

    in case you are wondering, in case you CARE, perhaps you should stop for a moment to think that there are people in this world who suffer any number of physical issues, health problems, other obstacles, which prohibit them from easily interacting in the world. for these people, social networks such as facebook keep them involved with humanity…they can stay connected with friends and family, keep themselves informed and involved. is this just too trite an idea for you to tolerate? or do you happen to be a member of the intellectual elite who believes such people should just be institutionalized, or worse yet – sanctioned off?

    other people who simply wouldn’t make your cut as intellectually worthwhile depend on people like Debbie for information they might not otherwise have access to, you know. i really hope you aren’t as evil and hateful as your comment made you seem…it’s always vaguely depressing to me when otherwise intelligent folk are so very nasty and mean-spirited. you should hold yourself to a higher standard.

    Roxanna on October 13, 2010 at 1:20 am

I don’t know why this thing could happen but what i know facebook owner is a Jew, so this is funny they allowed such islamist terorist try to closes your facebook Debbie. and for the jew hater facebook account, this peoples need to banned from facebook, they have no bussines to using faceboiok because facebook is Jew owns.

Obbie Afri Gultom on October 7, 2010 at 12:52 am

why you hate Muslims. Do you want to proceed a crusade against them? Many of my frnds want to start a big crusade against Muslims.

bathelham kenin on October 7, 2010 at 5:24 am

    You are ridiculous… There is no room for that here, move along.

    sharon on October 7, 2010 at 10:38 am

Look at the censoring as an opportunity to create another freedombook. So, everyone, dump faKebook now.

abc on October 7, 2010 at 6:33 am

I can still access your old site as a visitor…apparently it hasn’t been deleted. Wonder what they’re trying to do?

Love Michigan on October 7, 2010 at 7:27 am

Just sent an e mail to FB demanding an answer, I will keep you posted with the reply… This is ridiculous. Is there a FB is anti-semite page?

sharon on October 7, 2010 at 9:07 am

Maybe we should post on our status about it? Get the word out.

sharon on October 7, 2010 at 9:08 am

Disgusting&shameful. Seems Mark Z prays with his head turned toward Mecca already.

boleslawbierut on October 7, 2010 at 9:13 am

Really haven’t been too in love with Mr Zuckermans social network. But some realitives and friends use it as a life line. Anyway, i deactivated my account and told them when they reactivate you i’ll think about coming back. How far are they gonna go, guess when the next EVENT (not the show) happens,we’ll see where they want to stand then. Luv ya Deb, keep it up, your obliously pissin off the right people!

roundengine on October 7, 2010 at 9:22 am

Just goes to show how effective and successful the Islamic political correctness/pandering campaign is. Even a mighty entity like FB, where pretty much anything goes, cowers in the face of a few complaints from Muslim murderers/supporters of murderers. What is even more alarming is that supposedly neutral governments partake in the same Muslim a**-kissing behavior; thereby being complicit in genocide of nonbelievers.

Ace on October 7, 2010 at 9:24 am

Miss Schlussel:

I just now checked my list of FaceBook friends, and you’re still on it.

When I clicked on your name, your FaceBook profile opened up just as it normally does.

On your FaceBook profile, you do state that you’ve reached your limit of friends, and so everyone should subscribe to your FaceBook page.

Maybe what was taken down has now been restored?

Thank you.

Debbie-the 1st level is an automated complaint based system. Someone probably just gamed that system and got enough people to tag you for something that the automatic disable kicked in. It has nothing at all to do with people at FB at the 1st level. I suspect when there are actual employee eyes on it, your account will be reinstated it. This happens all the time to people with controversial stands.

Brian Cuban on October 7, 2010 at 9:57 am

I don’t see an update so I guess you must still be deactivated. If they respond it’ll probably be something like “Allahu Akbar”.

CornCoLeo on October 7, 2010 at 10:04 am

I think it’s time for a Jewish Facebook.

Ari Blumenfeld on October 7, 2010 at 10:06 am

Why do you care what Facebook, Twitter or any other of these o idiot public networks think? Is it that Important that you belong to these groups?
Check you premise…
Why not have the same attitude as your fellow counselor does?
