INTIFADA THREE // PART THREE

First there was Part 1 ….. FACEBOOK STARTING TO LOOK LIKE PAC MAN

Then the 2nd Part ….. THIRD INTIFADA: NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON’T

Now presenting Part 3 ……

Removed third intifada page regains 27,000 fans in first day

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, The organizers of the third Palestinian intifada page on Facebook have gained over 27,000 fans in one day after the Facebook administration removed the page in response to official calls in Israel.

The page now includes opening statements condemning the Facebook administration and founder Mark Zuckerberg after they responded to pressure from Israel to close the page calling the Palestinians to take to the streets for a third intifada against Israel on May 15, which marks the anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba.

Facebook said it removed the page, which picked up a fan base of 350,000 in less than a month, claiming that it ”incites and contains calls for the use of violence against Jews.”

Israeli minister Yuli Eidelstein wrote the site’s founder Mark Zuckerberg calling for the page’s removal.

According to the Israeli daily Yediot Ahranot, the fear of a popular Palestinian revolution similar to what happened in the past, as popular uprisings continue in several Arab countries, has increased after the emergence of the page.

Looks like without FaceBook there would be no changes in the Arab world 😉

    The links in your emails have been broken lately. For example, the email about this article had two links at top of page…

    “Part 1 ….. FACEBOOK STARTING TO LOOK LIKE PAC MAN”
    and
    “2nd Part ….. THIRD INTIFADA: NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON’T”

    …which generated the following errors when I clicked on them.

    400 Invalid path /mail/2011/03/27/facebook-starting-to-look-like-pac-man/ was requested

    400 Invalid path /mail/2011/03/30/third-intifada-now-you-see-it-now-you-dont/ was requested

    This has been happening on most of the links in your emails for 7-10 days now.

    Links work fine for me… sorry you are having a problem.
    Are you using Firefox? WordPress seems to work best with that.

    […] for all Muslims? And when FaceBook DID block the page did they boycott as threatened? NO….. they opened a new page. This ‘game’ has gone from Pac Man to Star Wars…. definitely not something to take seriously […]

    Love this site. It is so nice to get something in the USA other than corporate controlled media and AIPAC owned air waves.
