Facebook Yanks, Restores Anti-Islam Page After Admins Receive Death Threats…Adina Kutnicki

MANY of the readers are aware of this site’s association with Islam Exposed Online. I am its Israel Administrator.

In this regard, the following article is more than germane. It speaks for itself.

Facebook yanks, restores anti-Islam page after admins receive death threats

Is Facebook okay with death threats from Islamists? That’s the question administrators of “Islam Exposed” asked earlier this week. After administrators received a number of threatening messages, Facebook pulled the page, citing “harassment,” but restored the page on Tuesday, telling Examiner.com it “was removed in error.”

Administrators were extremely grateful to see the page restored, but questions regarding the threats remained. Would Facebook take action against those issuing the threats? The social media site did not say, but the group did not wait and filed complaints with the FBI.

“A single bullet will strike ur (sic) head one day [admin] from a jihadist. Insha-Allah,” one threat read. Another Facebook user with a Muslim name threatened to cut off administrators’ heads if they continued to post articles in a rant too profane to quote here. Yet another person threatened to blackmail one of the administrators.

“I am giving u (sic) warning,” said another person. “Stop this page.”

According to the group, one administrator received several threatening phone calls, with some including a Muslim prayer in Arabic. He reported it to the police, they said, but nothing was done. Just this week, they added, he received two threatening calls.

Adina Kutnicki, an investigative journalist based in Israel, said she has been harassed on Facebook by an individual she identified as Iranian Mohamed Erdem.

“Back off you satanist scum of the earth! You want war, war with me!” he told Kutnicki on Facebook. The threats she received from Erdem was so alarming, she added, that “heavy duty counter terror contacts decided to ‘check things out.'”

The face of another administrator was photo-shopped into a Nazi uniform and added to a Facebook post intended to incite harassment. Another picture depicted Kutnicki superimposed on a nuclear mushroom cloud with a warning that Israel would be destroyed and wiped off the map.

All of these incidents have been reported to Facebook, they said, but the social media giant has so far done nothing. Instead of punishing those actually making the threats, Facebook responded by retaliating against the victims. Unfortunately, this is not all that uncommon.

Last August, for example, we reported that a conservative female said she was targeted with explicit threats of death and rape from users with Muslim-sounding names, but Facebook dismissed them. According to that user, Facebook responded with a private email saying they could not confirm the threats violated their community standards. One threat reported to Facebook was quite specific: “We will kill you.”

At the time, Facebook told The Blaze it not only supports freedom of speech but enforces its standards uniformly across the board.

“We review every piece of content that is reported to us or flagged in the system and each one is held to the same exact standard – as is every person who uses our service and we will enforce our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities equally,” a Facebook spokesperson said.

But the administrators we spoke to — along with many hundreds of others who have reached out to Examiner over the last two years — dispute that. For Kutnicki and others, the issue is Facebook’s willingness to turn a blind eye to those who attack Jews and Israel while hammering anyone who even mentions Islam in a post.

  2. FANTASTIC – hope this will finally make facebook wake the hell up and face the facts that far too many people are being threatened and its not okay.

    • And, Dave, you and I both know that the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia – of which ISNA is one of its top terror dogs – means what they say and isn’t talking smack. On the other hand, western leaders, as well as too many counter terror professionals, are in deep denial, believing they can cajole, bribe, “reform” the war-like, political ideology of Islam!!

  3. Dear Facebook; You told the truth when you stated that you support “free speech” uniformly across the board? How can you say this, and not choke on your own words? Holding a gun to one’s face if that person says or expresses something is free speech? To me, sounds like it is free for you to give criminals free reign, while those who are threaten, or forbidden by you to say what they feel is needed, are not allowed to say what they wish. If you continue with your support of evil, I shall start looking elsewhere to express my views, and I am sure I am not the only one.

  4. I was always taught as a child that you cannot go around threatening people. apparently I was wrong in my thinking and what’s being endorsed in this twisted world we live in. I do not think it’s OK to threaten people on a social network and get away with it. these people continually threaten anyone whose views do not coincide with theirs. that is NOT a religion, will you deny them until they knock on your door? I have no respect for them, the quicker the World realizes what’s going on, the better understanding we will have as to what to do to secure ‘peace on this Earth’. we got rid of Hitler for the same reason, we will have to do it all again.I only hope descent humans on this Earth will do the right thing.

  5. As a contributing author to Islam Exposed, and as an outspoken, pro Israel Columnist, I can verify two points. One, I have enough death threats from people claiming to be Muslims to wallpaper my living room. Two; Facebook is LYING, LYING, AND LYING SOME MORE. They have catered to Islamist and Jew haters continuously, while constantly failing to treat Jewish users fairly or protect them from serious and persistent death threats. Facebook follows the pro Obama, progressive agenda and caters to all things Islamic. They are either Lairs or cowards or both.
