Thousands of Israelis Join Lawsuit Against Facebook over Pages Inciting Violence

(Fox News) Malia Zimmerman - Some 20,000 Israelis, organized by the Israel-based non-profit Shurat HaDin-The Israel Law Center, joined a civil lawsuit filed on Oct. 26 in the Supreme Court for the State of New York, seeking an injunction against Facebook for allowing jihadists to openly recruit and train terrorists and plan terror attacks on its pages. The law center wants to force Facebook not only to remove the terrorists' pages, but also to better monitor and block users who post videos glorifying and encouraging terrorist attacks, and publish messages with instructions on how to carry out an attack. "Facebook has been transformed into an anti-Semitic incubator for murder," said Israeli attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, director of Shurat HaDin. A spokesman for Facebook said, "We urge people to use our reporting tools if they find content that they believe violates our standards."
