Anti-Facebook bias campaign trends on social media

Ramallah (QNN)- Palestinian and international pro-Palestine activists launched a campaign on Wednesday to protest against Facebook’s anti-Palestine measures, which have been targeting Palestinian content on the internet. The hashtag #FBblocksPalestine trended in Palestine and Jordan.

Facebook has recently imposed a series of biased measures against the Palestinian content, removing and blocking several posts and accounts owned by Palestinian users and News agencies.

Facebook has created a new algorithm, targeting terms related to the Palestinian cause to remove hundreds of posts and accounts.

The targeted terms include “martyr, resistance, PFLP, Qassam, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Saraya Al Quds”, and other terms regardless of their context.

Activists shared their personal experiences with Facebook’s new measures and slammed its bias.

Jay Moore stated that Facebook has made itself a collaborator in the occupation of Palestine.

Others stated that Facebook is covering up the crimes committed by the occupation state and allows Israeli incitement and threats against Palestinians.

Yousef stressed on Palestinians’ right of free speech.

Pamela called for actions.
