As you might be aware, some Facebook pages established by Palestinian extremists calling for a “Third Intifada” against Israel. The first page, established on March 6th, has designated May 15, 2011, as the day of the Third Intifada and is actively calling on Muslim states and Palestinians to invade Israel on that date and “liberate” it. The extremists have asked that all sympathetic Facebook users help disseminate the page and spread its call to destroy Israel. The page boldly states: “After the Tunisian Intifada, the Egyptian Intifada and the Libyan Intifada, it’s now time for the Palestinian Intifada.”
This page has been temporarily taken down by Facebook.
It is clear that the organizers of the page are hoping to incite the type of violent rioting and mass unrest that is spreading throughout the Islamic world against the Jewish State, and are invoking the chaos that is unfolding in Tunis, Egypt and Libya as models of the violent they want to unleash against Israel. It is also clear that a call to “A Third Intifada” is a call to a killing of hundreds of Israelis as happened in the first and second Intifada.
Before it was taken down, hundreds of thousands of anti-Israel Facebook users have signaled their “like” of this dangerous page, and many other similar pages were established as a result of this page.
Numerous pleas to the Facebook corporation to shut down this page and to stop this incitement to violence before violence erupts so far has been partially successful. Shurat HaDin has sent Facebook a warning letter and is now investigating legal actions to be taken to stop these provocations.
