A Facebook page called the Third Palestinian Intifada has been removed from the site following a request from the Israeli government.

Yuli Edelstein, Israel’s minister of public diplomacy and diaspora affairs, sent a letter directly to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on March 23. In the letter, which has been posted on the Web site The Jerusalem Gift Shop, Edelstein asked the company to take down the page calling for a third intifada, translated by some as violent uprising, to begin against Israel on May 15.

Pointing to remarks and movie clips on the page calling for the killing of Israelis and Jews and the liberation of Palestine through violence, Edelstein expressed concern over the “wild incitement” that could be caused by the page, which had collected more than 230,000 friends at the time he wrote the letter.

intafada – An uprising among Palestinian Arabs of the Gaza Strip and West Bank, beginning in late 1987 and continuing sporadically into the early 1990s, in protest against continued Israeli occupation of these territories.

    And why are they on an imperialistic tool like facebook in the first place? Numbnuts.

    Perhaps this illustration will make the point:

    Suppose your class of transgender and gay progressives vote to liberate Palestine…and move there to relish the freedom.
    So you enter Gaza….skipping joyfully down the main square like Tiny Tim reincarnate…lip wrists tossing flowers to the gathering crowd, who are chanting “Allahu Akbar, Death to the infidels.”

    Are you happy?

    #32 Do you even know what Allahu Akbar means? Shees!

    #33 Sure I do.

    Picture his support group of transgeners and gay progressives, choosing to make a difference.

    They take stands on various issues, to save the planet.

    They decide Sheryl Crow’s “one square of Toilet Paper” the right thing to do, to save the forest.

    And hence forth, they’ll set thermostats at 68, to stop global warming.

    They are on a roll, so they decide their collective salvation requires the liberation of Palestine. The poor oppressed Palestinians must return to Israel, so they vote to condemn Israel’s intransigence.

    Having accomplished all their goals, they feel good about themselves, far superior to the wingnuts who support Israel, and decide to visit Palestine to bask in their gratitude for their progressive ideas.

    As they proceed to the center of town, a crowd begins to form all around them, Hamas flag flying high. Then the chanting begins, along with throwing dust up in the air, and picking up stones.

    They scream: “Allahu Akbar, Death to the Infidels!”

    The progressive transgenders and gays are very happy, as the crowd closes in, but for some unknown reason, panic is beginning to set in.

    Now look what happens when you guys feed the troll!

  7. MikeN says:

    So Israel managed to take down a Facebook page. How are they going to takedown the rest of the Jew haters who promote hatred against Israel? Including some on this site, who thankfully don’t post as much as they used to, perhaps it it because of an Israeli action?

    #34 All those lines to say you’re an ignorant? Superb!

  9. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    #37 Right on, anti Israel blogs, but where they did us a solid, like uploading the Stuxnet computer worm sabotage the Iranian nuclear program, keeping us alive a while longer…nothing.

    Not even a whisper about the technology involved.

    The most exciting hacking to appear, perhaps ever, and nothing on Dvorak Uncensored.

    Why is that?

    Why does Dvorak feed the Trolls, leaving precious few of us to object?

    #36 – hhopper

    No one feeds him really, he comes in, takes another patrons food, and then complains about the quality and portions.

    #40 hhopper is out rubbing his back legs together, trying to make music…

    Evidently something is preying upon your mind.

    Don’t worry, it will soon die of starvation.

    “Progressives are KNOWN by such things, and as that reference exists naturally, without explanation…”

    What?

    I was just pointing out that you talk about more gay stuff than any gay people I know. It just isn’t an issue. It wouldn’t be any more acceptable than a straight acquaintance giving you a play by play of their sex encounters.

    Who really wants to hear that shit?
