the world. As more people know
about it, the hope is that they will
join Anna's campaign and this
strength in numbers will persuade
Mr. Zuckerberg to remove these
extremely dangerous sites:'
Audra
Averbach of
Commerce
Township, a
health and well-
ness coach and a
mother of four,
also signed the
petition.
Audra
"Facebook is
Averbuch
being used as a
method of bully-
ing," she said.
"I think [the creators of the site]
spend too much time worrying
about how many friend requests
we're doing and not enough time
worrying about people filling
Facebook with nasty messages.
I hate what religion has become
because it causes so much hate, and
I think Facebook perpetuates it"
The ADL has joined the chorus
of voices imploring Zuckerberg
to take action. In February, ADL
National Director Abraham
Foxman issued a statement ask-
ing Facebook to remove one page
in particular called "Jewish Ritual
Murder; which was posted in 2012.
A Facebook representative is
quoted as saying, "Relying on
objective standards is very impor-
tant to us, and as such we cannot
remove content on grounds of pro-
moting false or offensive informa-
tion alone:' At press time, no action
had been taken (however a page
called "A Farso do holocasto" was
recently removed for containing
hate speech or symbols).
"It is profoundly offensive, has
no socially redeeming value and
adds nothing to any legitimate
marketplace of ideas:' Foxman said.
"This page targets all Jews, and
Facebook's position that it techni-
cally does not violate its commu-
nity standards because it does not
target individuals is an unaccept-
able excuse.
"We do not believe Facebook
intends to send a message that they
are insensitive to the enormous
harm the blood libel has caused
throughout Jewish history, and
the easiest way for them to make
that clear would be to exercise the
discretion they certainly have and
remove the page:"
