The brilliant Jeff Dunetz has an important story for us over at MRC TV. The tale revolves around the battle between accurate reporting of the news and the influence that the social media industry has on our culture today. Recently, a non profit organization called Shurat HaDin (Israel Law Center) launched a class-action lawsuit against Facebook for Facebook’s support of terrorism.
That’s right… I said Facebook’s “SUPPORT OF TERRORISM.”
Shurat HaDin contends that Facebook supports terrorism by refusing to remove anti-Israel hate sites from their pages, but choosing to actively, and unjustly, close down pro-Israel sites.
As the video explains, the group started two mirror-image sites – one anti-Israel, and one anti-Palestinian. Then they began uploading posts with similar language and equally inflammatory content. Finally, the reported both sites to Facebook’s moderators, and watched as the anti-Palestinian page was shut down for “Violating Facebook’s Community Standards” while the anti-Israel page was found to not be in violation.
Dunetz explains what happened once Facebook was unmasked by Shurat HaDin:
Only after the Israel Law Center published the video below did Facebook change its mind. “As you may have noticed, we have now taken down both those pages as we made a mistake earlier,” a Facebook spokesperson explained in an email to the Law Center.
While the Israel Law Center project was intended to expose Facebook’s anti-Israel bias, the social media site has been accused of displaying a similar bias against conservative pages.
Facebook might be a fun way to stay in touch with old friends, or to keep up with the goings-on in the lives of your relatives, but make no mistake, folks — Facebook is not on your side. Facebook has an agenda. They want to make as much money as possible while also pushing their cultural beliefs, values, and “morals” (such as they are) down your throat, without you actually realizing its happening. Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook desperately want to change American (and Western) cultural values, shifting us away from Judeo-Christian ethics and towards amoral nihilism. I’m not saying you should stop using Facebook, but I am saying that you should be keenly aware of what Facebook is trying to do to YOU.
