Why would it be a surprise if Facebook continues to ignore Islamic anti-semitism?

Israel National News tells of a Knesset panel on the subject of Islamic/Arabic anti-semitism rampant on the Facebook platform:
Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Ministry on Monday presented data to the Knesset’s Immigration, Absorption, and Diaspora Affairs Committee on the proliferation of anti-Semitic rhetoric and conspiracy theories on social media networks like Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter.

The data was based on studies conducted by the ministry’s center for monitoring anti-Semitism and incitement on social media networks.

During the committee’s hearing Monday morning, the Diaspora Affairs Ministry provided examples of anti-Semitic comments on social media, in particular the rampant anti-Semitism found in many Arabic-language groups on Facebook.

In these Facebook groups, the ministry found numerous cases of Holocaust denial, blaming Jews for the Holocaust, classic anti-Semitism and newer forms of anti-Semitism.

Yogev Karsenti, the head of the Diaspora Affairs Ministry’s efforts to combat anti-Semitism, said that social media networks’ policies have made curtailing the spread of anti-Semitism online difficult.
True, but it's hardly a surprise at this point. Zuckerberg's remained uncooperative with those wishing to combat the issue, and hasn't even proved convincing in dealing with content inciting violence, which is when antisemitism really becomes a problem. That's why there's just no point in using their systems at a time when alternatives are turning up, and no point in advertising on Facebook either.

About me

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
