French Journalist Condemned Over anti-Muslim 9/11 Remark

AFrench journalist has been slammed for making an unprovoked anti-Muslim 9/11 remark on Twitter. French broadcaster BFM TV shared...

Facebook on Friday said it removed three more Facebook accounts that allegedly incited against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after determining they were likely fake profiles.

The three accounts all posted images associated with the ongoing protests against Netanyahu over his indictment on corruption charges and handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

One of the profiles, “Nahorai Yosef,” posted a picture of Netanyahu with his arm outstretched, alongside a photo of Adolf Hitler doing a Nazi salute. The post also included a photo of Jews raising their hands in the air in front of Nazi soldiers, next to a picture of an anti-Netanyahu protester standing by Israeli police officers.

The accounts were flagged by activist Yossi Dorfman.

“Is there a campaign to tarnish the protests?” he wrote on Twitter. “Posts with severe incitement against Netanyahu are flooding the internet, supposedly in the name of the protests. Our checks — a team of professional volunteers for exposing fakes — found suspicion of fake profiles.”

Dorfman said the accounts only recently began posting content and had few friends, citing these among other signs that they were fake profiles.

The removal of the accounts came days after Facebook took down another fake profile that posted threatening messages against Netanyahu.

That user, called “Dana Ron,” had posted that the premier should be ousted “only by force… dictators are removed only with a bullet to the head!”

Netanyahu, who has claimed that anti-government protesters are issuing death threats against him, posted a screenshot of the comment and said he would be filing a police complaint, and police last week launched a probe into who was behind it.

Police later said an Israeli woman living abroad was behind the account. She was not identified by name or her country of residence, but a police statement said she lived abroad “for a long time.”

Netanyahu had posted a screenshot of the comment to create an equivalence in a statement condemning suspected right-wing attacks on protesters who demonstrated the previous evening in Tel Aviv against his government.

The statement, which came after the prime minister was panned for his nearly day-long silence following the violence, made a point of mentioning a police officer who was injured in a recent protest as well as the alleged threats against Netanyahu and his family.
