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.

Clap! Clap! Clap!

Thank you for standing up for logic!
Reality dictates fighting injustice and lies, especially when people die from the unchecked hatred espoused by the Islamic World.
To find a negative in anti-hatred action is a real reach...as we did learn (and obviously forgot) with Chamberlin and the Nazis...fighting for peace may seem a bit oxymoronic in an intellectual way, but watching your family bury their children is a reality check for philosophical discussion.
I hope no one feels love will conquer fanatical Jihadis like Hamas and IS...love God and arm your children with the best Israeli gear!

Well done Shurat Hadin. This is an unjust world. I hope your work, over time, will make a difference.

So What!!

I feel kind of proud that Jews are portrayed as a big scary shark instead of a timid little man wearing a big hat and holding a book. Also, there are millions of postings on Facebook everyday. Practically everyone (except me) has a Facebook page and there must be lots of inappropriate things posted. The question is who is the target audience? The target audience are radicalized Muslims and left leaning Americans and Europeans. They already accept the premise that Israel wants to take back the Temple Mount and this will not persuade them of something different then they already believe. Also, they think its okay for Arabs to attack Jews so this isn't going to persuade them that the Arabs should not attack jews because that is already happening. The best way to fight propaganda like that is not to try to stop it but put out your own propaganda mimicking it but altering the graphics slightly. Send a picture on Facebook showing a big shark with a Large Star of David on it with a scared little man in its mouth looking something like the Prophet and of course the Mosque on the Temple Mount depicted in that picture.

Send Zuckerberg a message.

I don't have a Facebook account because I consider it to be a waste of time. However, if I did have an account I would use it to expose Mark Zuckerberg. Start by sharing this video with all of your friends.

Where is Zuckerberg in all this?

Management could just as easily have taken both sites down or leave both sites up . It feeds into the poor me syndrome for Zionist Jews . I question FaceBook regulators for allowing this goofy melodrama to play out .

While I am an advocate for free speech and expression - if CAIR can get people bumped from FB why is this being displayed????

(5) Heidi T., January 7, 2016 7:04 PM

Unbelievable - yet believable.

I was shocked, but not surprised. I hope that once this comes to the attention of Mark Zuckerberg, something is done about it. I personally am going to post this on my own Facebook page, as well as post it on his Facebook page, if I can.

Sue Facebook and UTube to Bankrupcy

Facebook and UTube are inciting so much violence against Israelis and Jewish people, that it is time to sue them both to bankrupcy with both civil and criminal charges.
A temporary suspension of these social media websites will be quite a positive step in the proper use of any and all social media.

why against us jews ?????????????????

let us do the right thing, you know it, we know it and the whole world knows it..............

Why not go directly to Mark Zuckerberg with this?

As the CEO of Facebook is Jewish, why don't you send this directly to him asking for an explanation.

Heidi T., January 7, 2016 8:10 PM

I sent it to him, and I'm sure others have by now.

I just sent it to him via email on Facebook - whether or not he personally reads it, or it gets forwarded to him to read, I doubt I'll ever know. I'm sure others have done so by now, as well. It will be interesting to see if anything happens in response, or if he publicly addresses the issue.

Very important and enlightening experiment. Two suggestions regarding the video: First, fix the English spelling (one quick viewing and I saw several major errors). And, more important, tell us what we should be doing to protest this outrage and to make FaceBook stop the incitement again the Jews..Shurat HaDin, keep up the good work!
