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: firstname.lastname@example.org and ask why they censor those who tell the truth about the Islamic threat, but allow these groups and accounts to remain up:
