The Facebook Fatwa

The social networking site Facebook is the target of the latest Islamo-seethe fest.

A group claiming to represent 2.5 million Muslim Facebook users says they're going to leave Facebook and jump to a low rent Muslim imitator called unless four pages Facebook removed are reinstated and their additional demands are met.

The four pages were:


And so far, Facebook hasn't revealed what the content of these pages were or why they were removed. I'd love to know why.

The group has been spamming the same comment over and over on Facebook blogs.Notice how they single out moderators with Jewish sounding names:

Facebook Admins, Moderators, Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, Sheryl Sandberg, and Matt Cohler; Although you have attended the world's best communication skills courses you have been most successful in growing great hatred and hostility between you and Muslims around the world, but seriously this time you have caused an almost unrepairable damage.

Only a few weeks after your irresponsible behavior during the Everybody Draw Mohammed Day events you most aggressively removed four of the largest Islamic Facebook Pages of total fans/likes over 2.5 million Facebook members. That happened on the morning of Thursday 8th July, 2010.

These four Facebook pages were totally peaceful and free of any hate speech, but you removed it ignoring the feelings of more than 2.5 Million Facebook Muslims and disrespecting over 1.5 Billion Muslims worldwide.

And now since that is what it had come down to you, with your irresponsibility and fake preach of freedom of speech, have left us no other choice other than permanently boycotting Facebook. And now we are giving you a 2 weeks notice - ending at midnight of 21st July, 2010 - to fulfill our demands or else we will leave Facebook for

Our demands are:

1- Reactivating the four pages that have been disabled
2- Adding a Facebook Term that illegalizes disrespecting all Islamic religious symbols, including Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the Qur'an, as well as Prophet Moses (PBUH), Prophet Jesus (PBUH), and the original Bible
3- Disabling any Facebook Page, Group, or Event that shows direct or indirect disrespect towards Islamic religious symbols

What they're really looking for,I think, is to make Facebook a no-go zone for any discussion of Islam or Islamism or related topics.

It will be interesting to see how Facebook handles this.

"It will be interesting to see how Facebook handles this." I agree, however, this is going to be very difficult for them.

As I've pointed out here and elsewhere before, the threat posed to America and the "West" by the nations who support Islamic terrorism is far greater than the threat that was once posed by Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan ever was or likely ever could have been. For one thing, the Nazis and the Imperial Japanese never achieved the level of penetration into the American government or the American media that Islamic terrorist sympathizers have.

If Facebook attempts to stand up to them, they can bring suit, they can threaten the leaders of Facebook and their families, and they can engage in cyber attacks on their system. In other words, Facebook will need a great deal of help to fight this menace.

If the Islamic groups should decide to use the legal system to punish Facebook, Facebook will have a VERY difficult time. Given how much influence Islamic terrorists and their sympathizers have within the American legal system, it is going to be hard to envision how Facebook will be able to get a fair trial.

Of course none of this is meant to imply that we should give up in the face of a very dangerous enemy. It is simply to point out the challenges of the struggle we face. The first step to winning is to understand your enemy. Then you must understand yourself. Know ourselves and know our enemies and we should prevail.
