Following Palestinian Media Watch’s bulletin exposing the PA TV broadcast of a girl reciting a poem referring to Jews as “enemies of Allah, descendants of pigs,” Facebook, like YouTube, decided to remove PMW’s post.
While Facebook is preventing PMW’s exposure of the PA’s hate speech, Facebook’s policy has not been applied to the explicit terror promotion and terror glorification by Fatah on Facebook, which PMW has documented, all of which were posted by Fatah’s Facebook page administrator:
Fatah paid tribute to suicide bomber Wafa Idris who killed 1 and injured over a hundred Israelis during her attack in Jerusalem in January 2002. Part of the text about the terrorist read:
“The hero whose name the Zionists will remember well and so will Palestinians; the hero who sacrificed herself and her body for Palestine and became a symbol of the struggle and of Palestinian loyalty through one of the most honorable Martyrdom-seeking operations.”
Suicide bomber Idris is still glorified on Fatah’s Facebook page.
Fatah posted a picture of terrorist Dalal Mughrabi and a poem honoring her. Mughrabi was responsible for the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history when she led a group of terrorists who hijacked a bus and killed 12 children and 25 adults. Part of the poem read:
“This is Dalal, my eternal love… Dalal is my mysterious young woman, my revolutionary Jihadi inspiration. I loved her but knew only her name, Dalal Mughrabi.”
Terrorist Mughrabi is still praised on Fatah’s Facebook page.
Fatah glorified violence and terror as acts of heroism, and depicted a world without Israel. It posted pictures of automatic rifles and slogans venerating arms. In some pictures, young children were carrying rifles. These posts still appear on this Fatah Facebook page.
Note: Following pressure, YouTube decided to put back PMW’s video of the hate poem.
