Facebook recently took down a page, Jerusalem Prayer Team, dedicated to praying for Jerusalem and told its founder, Mike Evans, there was no appeal. The page had 75 million followers.
Evans alleges this took place after Islamic extremists began posting antisemitic comments on the site, including photos and statements by Adolf Hitler, and then reported the comments to Facebook.
The Blaze provides the details:
“There was an organized attempt by radical Islamic organizations to achieve this objective. They posted over a million comments on our site, and then had the people contact Facebook saying that they never posted to the site,” Evans said. “That was a complete scam and fraud. It was a very clever, deceptive plan by Islamic radicals.”
Evans, who is currently in Israel leading people around the world in prayer for the country amid renewed violence with Hamas and Palestinian terrorist groups, said his page was flooded with anti-Semitic comments — including photos of and quotes from Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. He also said the same groups that posted the comments directed people to report them to Facebook, flagging them as spam that violated the platform’s terms of service.
