Noe that Facebook didn’t take the post down or ban the Palestinian Mission to Berlin. The Mission only took down the post after the German Foreign Ministry, of all people, protested. Meanwhile, Facebook systematically blocks, shadowbans, and otherwise silences my colleagues and me. I am loathe to advocate for government intervention in private industry, but the left-censorship, the sharia censorship of the public square is a whole other animal. We are being systematically disappeared from the public square, and action must be taken before the coup is complete, or free speech will be a dead letter in the United States.
“Germany Slams Palestinian Mission for Glorifying Terrorist on Facebook,” The Tower, December 30, 2018:
The Palestinian Mission to Berlin took down a pro-terror Facebook post after receiving a rare rebuke from Germany’s Foreign Ministry, Benjamin Weinthal reported for The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday.
The mission removed a Facebook post featuring the image of hijacker Leila Khaled, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist organization. The picture was accompanied by a caption with the phrase, “Resistance is not terrorism.”
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry explained, “We have made it clear to the Palestinian Mission that we need clarification on the Facebook post, and the glorification of terrorism and a glorification of Lufthansa kidnapper Leila Khaled are completely unacceptable.”
The rebuke of the Palestinian Mission came after Filipp Piatov, a reporter for the newspaper Bild, reported on the post praising Khaled.
Khaled was a member of a PFLP cell that hijacked TWA flight 840 in August 1969. She also participated in the attempted hijacking of an El Al flight a year later….
Khaled has been quoted as saying that for Palestinians, “negotiations will be held only with knives and weapons.”
