Facebook banned the account of the Israeli Prime Minister's oldest son over a series of posts described as “hate speech”.

All Muslims leave the country of Israel. second option. "In another he wrote:" Do you know there are no attacks in Iceland and Japan. It's because there are no Muslim populations.

In an entry from the beginning of this month, written in Hebrew, the 27-year-old wrote: “There will not be peace here until: 1. All Jews leave Israel. 2. All Muslims leave the country of Israel. second option. “

In another he wrote:” Do you know there are no attacks in Iceland and Japan. It’s because there are no Muslim populations. “

In a third post, he also called Palestinians “monster” that should “be encouraged to immigrate” to Arab countries.

Facebook originally removed the posts from its platform but then decided to suspend him for 24 hours after reposting a screen bar that showed the posts Facebook had removed.

“Yair Netanyahu posted several posts that include hate speech &#821

1; this clearly violates our community standards. Therefore, the contents of our platform were removed as we would do for anyone who sends similar content about protected features,” a spokesman for Facebook told CNN. “After this, Yair Netanyahu decided to share a screenshot of a deleted post and called people to share it – which is the same as writing the hat again.”

Yair Netanyahu responded to the suspension in a tweet in Hebrew on Sunday saying: “The Facebook thought police, the ultimate progressive organization, has finally come after me.” He added that the right wing of the world needed to be awakened: “The only way to express what we have is in social media because the established media is ruled by the extreme left (both in Israel and in America). Currently they are trying to close our mouths on the only the place where we have the right to express our opinion. “

He also accused Facebook of appointing him.

“Facebook has official pages of organization on behalf of Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Iranian regime. There are also a large number of pages that require Israel to be destroyed and kill Jews. There are thousands of violent and extreme posts of people to my left and my family, including threats of physical violence and threats to Mord. These are not against Facebook rules. They are in freedom of speech. “

Facebook would not comment on Netanyahu’s claims about specific threats. But on their community standard page, Facebook says: “We try to consider the language, context, and details to distinguish between temporary statements from content that pose a credible threat to public or personal security. We remove content, disable accounts and fight law enforcement when we believe There is a real risk of physical damage or direct threats to public security. “

Facebook responded to Netanyahu’s accusation that he was blocked to criticize the company saying:” We want to stress that we never remove posts to criticize the company and The claim that we censor criticism of the company on the platform is simply false. “

Yair Netanyahu is no stranger to controversies. In January of this year, an Israeli television channel released a secret recording from 2015 that took place outside a band club with a conversation between him and two friends who touched topics ranging from the last government to prostitutes. The critics said that it also contained exchanges that caused corruption as unreasonable as possible.

In the band, Yair Netanyahu could be heard and demanded money from the Ori Maimon son of Kobi Maimon, an Israeli gas star.

“My father did a great deal for you, brother,” Yair Netanyahu, who is telling Ori, hears. “You must be good to me.” Laughter can then be heard on the recording.

Yair Netanyahu apologized for the comments and said he was “under the influence of alcohol” when he did them.

The prime minister had to defend the current gas agreement, and his relationship with Kobi Maimon, as he said he had met once. The Netanyahu family also released a statement denying that Yair had any involvement in the agreement and that there was no abuse by the prime minister.

In another event, in 2017, Yair Netanyahu published a Facebook magazine directed to the Jewish philanthropist George Soros, who supports progressive initiatives around the world, along with a number of Prime Minister critics who featured several pictures which were generally regarded as anti-Semitic troops.

White supremacist and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Clan, David Duke, promised Netanyahu’s post in a tweet saying “Welcome to the club, Yair – amazing, wow, just wow.”

Anti-Defamation League called the record dangerous and said it contained “blatant anti-Semitic elements.”
