Re: <nettime> Facebook takes down Palestinian intifada page

A curious case indeed..

Here's a google translated article that seem to portray an  israeli  
self explanation as to why it's censorship efforts are morally fine.

I read about the 3rd intifada + fb issue a few weeks ago. At the time,  
I noticed that despite the claim of over 300,000 "likes", the actual  
number was more like 350. Note that within the following link there is  
a screenshot where the number of "likes" is 1,642.
Maybe 298,358 simultaneously realised that they accidentally "liked"  
the same group by mistake..


All the best!
