I’ve been reporting a Facebook page charmingly titled “Jewish Ritual Murder” for hate speech, and Facebook has so far completely denied that it violates their Community Standards. Here are their terms:
Facebook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition.
This is what Facebook deems acceptable speech:
For most of history, belief in Jewish ritual murder was acceptable and widely accepted. Naturally, the Jews aren’t the only group who have practiced (and might still practice) ritual murder. Historically, it is fairly common: the Aztecs, numerous African tribes, and the ancient Carthinagians come to mind. But since WW2, with the rise of Jewish ownership of the mass media, has come the politically-correct “Doctrine of the Never-Guilty Jews.” Every accusation of Jewish ritual murder, no matter how well proved it might have been in its time, has become a “blood libel” in today’s media, a phrase that explicitly frames each case as a malicious falsehood, without an examination of the facts.
And check out the astounding logic of the second paragraph:
Probably, not every accusation is true. But it is also unlikely that all of them are false. This video makes a survey of the known evidence in dozens of cases of ritual murder spanning ancient, medieval, renaissance and modern times. The viewer is invited to sift the relevant facts from history and to see that they point toward the existence of a transgenerational ritual murder cult within the larger body of Judaic tradition. The evidence is persuasive, but the final verdict is yours to make.
Note the pretend objectivity. The entire page is based on the blood libel–the lie that has been told about Jews through the ages, that Jews murder Christians for their blood to use in our rituals. But if you pretend that maybe, just maybe there’s some truth behind the lie? Well, Facebook won’t remove your page.
Facebook also deemed this acceptable:
On April 16, 2005, just a week before the beginning the the Jewish Passover on April 23, five children, Muslim and Christian, “disappeared” in the Russian Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk. Four weeks later their burnt bodies were found in a sewage pit.
A popular Russian daily, Komsomolskaya Pravda, writes today that many Russians in the city are convinced that the children were ritually murdered ba local Jews who later burnt their bodies to conceal the crime and prevent experts to find in the bodies the lack of blood which is used by Hasidic Jews for ritual purposes.
Lies, lies, and more lies, but hey, it’s in a Russian newspaper, so it might be true, right? You know, the Russians–the country responsible for the forgery of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion?
This isn’t a popular page. It only has a few hundred likes. But it is a disgustingly anti-Semitic hate site, and it should not be on Facebook. If you want to help, go to the page and report it for abuse. Here’s where to find the menu:
