At a press conference today [October 15 2015], Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper urged the public to report hate sites (at www.Facebook.com/SimonWiesenthalCenter) on social media platforms which are fueling the current spate of attacks in Israel.
Center officials announced that SWC protests have led to the removal of additional pro-terrorist postings from Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram.
The Rabbis also denounced:
• The unfair and one-sided portrayal of Israeli terror victims in the media
• The U.S. State Department’s outrageous depiction of the current situation as a “cycle of violence” – “It is not a cycle of violence, but a campaign of Palestinian violence,” Center officials declared.
• The use of social media platforms to celebrate murderous attacks against innocent people and instructional terrorism tutorial videos
• The BDS’ movement’s endorsement of the barbaric acts of terrorism and renewed calls to boycott Israel
