As I wrote yesterday, my account was deactivated from Facebook. But after alerting you, my faithful readers and friends and our friends at the JIDF, my account was finally reinstated, with the excuse that it was disabled “by mistake.” I don’t believe that for a second because, as I told you, yesterday, Facebook has been deleting groups and people who tell the truth about the Islamic threat, including a Facebook page calling for Muslim men to be profiled at airports, and Facebook deleted the page calling for everyone to draw a cartoon of Mohammed. Your many e-mails of protest and my phone calls and e-mails, with the help of the JIDF, helped get me back on Facebook.
I received the following email from Facebook, after several hours of complaining, which consumed a good part of the day:

Subject: Re: My Personal Profile was Disabled
I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced. Your account was disabled in error. Your account has been reactivated and you will now be able to log in.
Thanks for contacting Facebook,
Okay, “Liam,” or whatever your name really is. But we know why my account was reactivated: you and our friends at the JIDF and all of our complaints. I would like to thank all of you who wrote to help get the account reinstated. Like I said, especially in light of what they have done to many other fellow Jews, conservatives, pro-Israel activist and counter-jihadists, I doubt this was an “accident.” This is the same excuse they used after they, um, “accidentally” deactivated Sarah Palin’s Facebook account, just after she condemned the Ground Zero mosque.
Again, I would especially like to thank David Appletree (founder of the Jewish Internet Defense Force) for his help. As he has done with many others, he took immediate action, wrote to his contacts at Facebook, and helped get the word out to his network of 270,000+ strong. I believe the massive, immediate response that he and the JIDF helped foster and your many e-mails are the real reasons my account was reinstated, and reinstated so quickly. We both know Facebook is watching, as yesterday, Facebook staffers were monitoring both of our sites on the topic:
David Appletree has been a great help to me and my site. He has served as a technical consultant, helped me to seamlessly transfer my site over to new servers, has helped save my site from going down after extreme spikes in traffic, and he has helped me increase my social media presence and general internet savvy many, many times over.
Beyond all this, he and the JIDF do great work that no one else is doing in “the good fight.” I urge you to support them, however you can, just as he always encourages his network to support me and my work. The JIDF also have advertising and consultation services for anyone looking to improve their online presence or get the word out about anything. (Just be sure to let them know that I sent you!)
I would also like to thank Fred Taub of Boycott Watch, who also contacted Facebook and tried to intervene and who has also been of help to me and this site in many such situations.
But again, I, above all, thank you, my loyal readers who have been with me for so many years and who sent so many e-mails and copied me on them. Thanks!!!!!! I really appreciate your help and continued support, friendship, and readership.
You are the best! Thanks again.
