OBSCENE EXPERIMENT

It's interesting that none of the comments takes into account that the entire experiment was obscene from its onset. Anything that increases hate in this world is destructive and evil, period. Can you be sure the anti Israel videos didn't increase hatred for Israel and Jews? What good came out of it all? Facebook afraid to intimidate Arabs? Good morning. Tell me something new.
Hoping and praying for peace.

I agree!

The point was to show, plainly, to give PROOF to the largely ignorant population, that there's a bias anti-Israel and pro-Palestine, to make that clear. Otherwise people can just keep repeating that we're imagining things and that any hate is bad. This way, even if most people overlook it, some will be alerted to the incredible unfairness the world deals us daily.

Plus, wouldn't it also do the same damage to the Palestinians? Anyone who has the gall to be blindly turned against Israel, JUST from a Facebook page (as opposed to other anti-Semitism), shouldn't come away from the opposing page with a happy feeling about the literally backstabbing Palestinian people.

Of course I don't want extra hate in the world, but it will be there anyway. At least this way we can get a bit of evidence of it to try to sway the ignorant.
