Facebook Bans JFJFP Page Admin for Posting Images of Palestinian Victims

apple-bans-facebookFacebook has banned the page admin from posting anything to Facebook anywhere, for at least 24 hours.

The reason for this is that a second picture was censored by Facebook as violating their community standards.

It was a picture of an injured Gazan child. Images of the injured and dead Palestinians are being systematically censored by Facebook, in line with the Israeli military censor who has banned these images in Israel.

Many of our page followers are in Israel/Palestine. Images of wounded or dead IDF soldiers have not been censored by Israel or Facebook.

It also does not censor commonly posted horrific images from the holocaust of dead and injured, which are often used to justify these policies.

Through this politically motivated censorship Facebook is openly supporting Israel. Facebook is selectively distorting the information flow to the public around the world. In doing so it supports the mainstream media which has not published any of the hundreds of images of the dead and injured that have been coming out of Gaza and the West Bank.

Now this social media channel for truth is under attack. Facebook is participating in a global conspiracy of silence on these atrocities. JFJFP will be looking to work with partner organisations to build a public web archive of images to work around the censorship so people can see the truth.

These images were all obtained from people in Gaza via Facebook and Twitter, so we are not the first to post them. They were shared on our page, following overwhelming support from fans for our doing so, in order to bear witness to these horrors.
