Facebook Closes Hamas Leader’s Account

The Jerusalem Post reports: Facebook closed Hamas Politburo member and Khaled Meshaal confidante Ezzat al-Rishq’s Facebook account for the seventh time on Tuesday.

Rishq condemned the closing of his account, tweeting, “I condemn Facebook’s administration for closing my personal account for the seventh time in a row, and I consider the [decision] bias in favor the occupation and its dictates and against the struggle of our people for the sake of freedom.”

On Monday, the NGO Shurat HaDin filed a law suit against Facebook in a US district court. In a press release, the director of Shurat HaDin, Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, said Facebook has bears responsibility for allowing Hamas leaders to use its platform. “This lawsuit should be no surprise to Facebook, which has knowingly provided its social media platform and services to Hamas, its leaders, and affiliates for years.

“Facebook must now be held accountable for its role in facilitating Hamas’s terrorist activity, including the terror attacks that injured and killed the victims in this lawsuit,” she said.
