11 Apr, 2011

In response to act of closing the pages of the Palestinian uprising or the third Palestinian Intifada from Facebook under the request of the Israel media minister, activists organized a boycotting day yesterday via facebook events app. The call came from a page called the Arab National Army and other pages and has achieved 256,931 participants.

The organizers say the boycotting is a first step before using AdBlock to deprive Facebook from money it makes from Muslim users, as long as facebook continues its double standard practice.

why to boycotting facebook for one day ? the organizers posted the following statement:

We consider this attitude as conspired to commit war crimes against our nation , and against the issue of people struggling For their freedom and enjoyment of the right to self-determination and establish their independent state like the peoples of the earth .
we want them to know that we are majority of Muslims users who Love Face book & use it daily , but we are against this new direction of facebook on supporting such issues ,, we want it to be neutral space wide enough for every one or otherwise we will quite to find another respectable reasonable neutral network.
