“The Palestinian narrative will remain present” .. an electronic campaign denouncing Facebook’s policies

This evening, Wednesday, an electronic campaign will be launched on social networking sites against what activists described as Facebook’s policies aimed at suppressing the voice of Jerusalem and combating Palestinian content on its platforms.

Palestinian activists called on social media pioneers to participate in the electronic campaign, through Wasmi #Facebook_blocks_Jerusalemand “FbCensorsJerusalem #”, to express their rejection of Facebook’s policy in combating Palestinian content.

According to the activists, the policy of fighting Palestinian content from Facebook continues after it blocked Jerusalem pages on the platform, due to its coverage of the shooting attack that took place in Jerusalem, and was carried out by the martyr Fadi Abu Shkhaydam, which led to the killing of an Israeli soldier and the injury of 4 others.

Palestinian activist Hind Al-Khudari tweeted on the hashtag in English, “Since the beginning of 2021, Facebook has been censoring Palestinian content. Hundreds of Palestinian journalists and activists have been banned from publishing in their profiles.”

Palestinian content is frequently subject to deletion and restriction; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube removed hundreds of Palestinian pages, under the pretext of violating standards and inciting violence in previous periods.
