Facebook Doesn’t See Any Hate Speech Or Graphic Violence On Islamic Jihad’s Page

Update, Nov 26: Page removed. see here for details.

A few weeks ago I reported the official Islamic Jihad Quds Brigades Facebook, just to see if it’s taken seriously.

Last evening, I got a response from Facebook:

“Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. Reports like yours are an important part of making Facebook a safe and welcoming environment. We reviewed the page you reported for containing hate speech or symbols and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.”


Realizing that perhaps calling for murder of Israelis in Arabic is too difficult to understand, I reported them again for Graphic Violence, Facebook’s response arrived soon after:


Once again, Facebook deemed it perfectly fine for the page to stay.

These are FB’s Community Standards:

Violence and Threats

Safety is Facebook’s top priority. We remove content and may escalate to law enforcement when we perceive a genuine risk of physical harm, or a direct threat to public safety. You may not credibly threaten others, or organize acts of real-world violence. Organizations with a record of terrorist or violent criminal activity are not allowed to maintain a presence on our site. We also prohibit promoting, planning or celebrating any of your actions if they have, or could, result in financial harm to others, including theft and vandalism.

Hate Speech

Facebook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition.

Graphic Content

Facebook has long been a place where people turn to share their experiences and raise awareness about issues important to them. Sometimes, those experiences and issues involve graphic content that is of public interest or concern, such as human rights abuses or acts of terrorism. In many instances, when people share this type of content, it is to condemn it. However, graphic images shared for sadistic effect or to celebrate or glorify violence have no place on our site. 

Keep in mind the bold parts, and FB’s response that they didn’t find any violation of their Community standards, when viewing the next few posts on their FB page:

Here’s Islamic Jihad celebrating and glorifying the Maxim terrorist attack that killed 22 Israelis, as well as posting graphic images:


Here‘s Islamic Jihad leader threatening more suicide attacks:


Abu Ahmad: We will not remove the option of martyrdom operations (suicide attacks, J.D) from our calculations

Here‘s Islamic Jihad glorifying the terrorist attack in Tel Aviv last year

On the 1st anniversary. Special file martyr commander Mohammad Rabah Assi, a leader of Al-Quds Brigades in Ramallah, and process engineer Spring Hill occupied by the blue sky battle was resolved in favor of the Resistance

On the 1st anniversary.
Special file on the martyr commander Mohammad Rabah Assi, a leader of Al-Quds Brigades in Ramallah, and the attack on Occupied Tel-Aviv during the “battle of blue skies” that ended in favour of the “resistence”

Here‘s Islamic Jihad posting one of their videos that celebrates attacks on Israeli civilians with rockets – a war crime.


Lest we forget that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad is a designated a terrorist organiation by the USEU, UK, Japan, Canada and Israel.

Funnily enough, Hamasholes are protesting Facebook for shutting down Hamas’ page, so why give the Palestinian Islamic Jihad a free pass?

Please share and write to Facebook about it.
