Third Intifada Facebook Page Closed Down?

Honest Reporting reports that the vile Facebook group calling for a Third Intifada has been closed down.

Despite previous statements saying they would monitor but not remove the controversial Facebook group calling for a Third Intifada, Facebook administrators shut down the group early Tuesday morning in response to enormous pressure from pro-Israel activists. All links to the group now go to users personal Facebook profile.

The group had been calling for a march on Israel to “liberate” Palestine beginning on May 15. It remains to be seen how Facebook will respond if similar groups emerge with similar message of a Third Intifada.

New media expert Andre Oboler, one of the first to discover the group was down, told HonestReporting that Facebook made the correct decision shutting down the group.  “It’s about time,” he said. “Facebook needs to learn to distinguish between the right to ‘attack’ conceptual ideas, and the ‘wrong’ of attacking people be it because of their race, religion, nationality or political view. When they start to understand that, perhaps they will stop making so many mistakes.”

But to paraphrase Mark Twain, rumors of its demise have been greatly exaggerated.

There are at least a few more such pages:

We’ve still got work to do.

Update: And let’s not forget Third Palestinian Intifada videos are all over YouTube.
