Censorship? Facebook Excludes Israel and Includes Palestine

Facebook should stop its shameful exclusion of Israel. This is the view of New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), who says that, when creating a background profile, Facebook gives users 50 nationality options. These options, he claims, include Palestine, but Israel is conspicuously absent.

“Palestine is not even a country,” said Hikind. “How did it end up as an option? Well, we all know the answer to that.”

“Mark Zuckerberg has been quoted as saying, ‘As a Jew, my parents taught me that we must stand up against attacks on all communities.’ I am calling on Mr. Zuckerberg to get to the bottom of this attack on Jews and Israelis. The exclusion of Israel from Facebook, a publicly traded company, while Palestine is included is no accident—it’s a purposeful, racist insult that must be addressed immediately.”

Often the worst enemies of the Jews are… the Jews themselves. Even though his stand against Facebook’s anti-Israel attitude is commendable, Hikind is a Jewish politician of the Democratic Party, which is not a friend of Israel as far as the Bible is concerned. Traditionally, the Democratic Party, of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, is hostile to Israel. Even so, traditionally the Jewish population in the United States overwhelmingly supports the Democratic Party.

So Zuckerberg is not the only American Jew who is treacherous to Israel. Other examples of treacherous Jews are:

* Karl Marx, one of the most famous Jews in the history, was anti-Jew by defending Marxism, which is fundamentally against the Jewish Scriptures. He was a Jew who denied his Jewish roots.

* George Soros, a capitalist-socialist Jewish billionaire, has invested in every anti-Israel cause. He has also denied his Jewish roots.

* Henry Kamen, one of the most famous revisionist Jews, has been anti-Jew by defending the revisionism of the Inquisition, which is fundamentally against the massive Jewish bibliography on the Inquisition. He has also denied his Jewish roots.

So how could I be surprised when Facebook has engaged in systematic censorship against my profile and blocked me for denouncing Islamic violence?

This is nonsense, because the owner of Facebook, who is an American Jew who lives in the largest Protestant nation in the world, knows that Jews and evangelicals are major victims of Islam. So why favor Islam? Why censor me, a Brazilian evangelical who defends Israel? Why censor me, a Brazilian evangelical who defends Christians who are victims of systematic Islamic violence?

The answer is simple: If Facebook can exclude Israel, it can censor any pro-Israel evangelical.
