More evidence on how social media works to promote Islamic radicalization — while suppressing its victims
Facebook created over 100 pages for ISIS (Islamic State), as well as pages for other terror organizations, including the group behind the 9/11 attacks on the U.S., Al-Qaeda.
Facebook has failed to catch Islamic State group and al-Shabab extremist content in posts aimed at East Africa as the region remains under threat from violent attacks. ... [Facebook] repeatedly failed to act on sensitive content including hate speech in many places around the world.
Posts calling for violence and murder "in languages including Swahili, Somali and Arabic — were allowed to be widely shared."
Responding to these at the time shocking findings, Leah Kimathi, a Kenyan consultant in governance, peace, and security, said, "The least they [Facebook] can do is ensure that something they're selling to us is not going to kill us."
Similarly, "Why are they not acting on rampant content put up by [the Islamic terrorist group] al-Shabab?" asked Moustafa Ayad, who worked on the report. "You'd think that after 20 years of dealing with al-Qaida, they'd have a good understanding of the language they [jihadists] use, the symbolism."
Yes, you'd think.
despite the leniency shown to Islamic terrorist content, social media, especially Facebook, are notoriously quick to censor content that exposes the jihadists. This it calls "hate speech" or "offensive content." In one especially stark example, Facebook censored the campaign of a charity that sought to draw attention to the plight of Christian women in Muslim nations.
I too have been censored by Facebook — and am constantly "shadowbanned" — for posting on the Muslim persecution of Christians.
allow Islamic hate and violence to proliferate and radicalize Muslims, who go on to murder "infidels."
