Facebook’s secret censorship rulebook exposed after platform removes video calling Palestine ‘Israel’s weapons-testing lab’

Facebook’s secret censorship rulebook exposed after platform removes video calling Palestine ‘Israel’s weapons-testing lab’

Journalist Rania Khalek, whose video was restored after public outcry, says the ability of social media giants “to disappear content as they please” is “creepy and alarming and should be loudly opposed.” After the New York Times on Thursday published an exposé of Facebook’s global censorship rulebook, journalist Rania Khalek called out the social media giant for taking down a video in which she explains how, “on top of being occupied, colonized territory, Palestine is Israel’s personal laboratory for testing, refining, and showcasing methods and weapons of domination and control.” Tweeting out the Times report-and noting that while, according to the newspaper, “moderators were told to hunt down and remove rumors wrongly accusing an Israeli soldier of killing a Palestinian medic,” Israeli soldiers did fatally shoot an unarmed 21-year-old female paramedic earlier this year-she announced Friday morning that Facebook had “just removed” her video.
