(The Hosting News) Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook and Facebook have a suit filed against them by Larry Klayman.  Klayman is the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch and claims “”While Facebook has accomplished a lot of good, it can, as in this instance, be used for nefarious and evil purposes. Defendants Zuckerberg’s and Facebook’s callous and greedy actions in not taking down the page, but willfully allowing it to stay up for many days, has caused huge damage, for which they must be held accountable, so as to prevent this from ever happening again. They must be not only enjoined but also hit in their purse, which is where they understand matters best. Apparently, the ethically compromised Zuckerberg has no conscience or sense of right or wrong, as depicted recently in the award winning film “Social Network.” according to a press release from Standard Newswire http://www.standardnewswire.com/news/820276117.html.

Although the page in questioned, calling for a third intifada against Israel’s Jewish people was removed, Klayman felt the page wasn’t removed quickly enough and considers similar pages and related sites will reappear on Facebook.

According to Techcrunch,  Facebook declined comment but released the following statement.

“The Page, The Third Palestinian Intifada, began as a call for peaceful protest, even though it used a term that has been associated with violence in the past. In addition, the administrators initially removed comments that promoted violence. However, after the publicity of the Page, more comments deteriorated to direct calls for violence. Eventually, the administrators also participated in these calls. After administrators of the page received repeated warnings about posts that violated our policies, we removed the Page.

We continue to believe that people on Facebook should be able to express their opinions, and we don’t typically take down content that speaks out against countries, religions, political entities, or ideas.

However, we monitor Pages that are reported to us and when they degrade to direct calls for violence or expressions of hate–as occurred in this case–we have and will continue to take them down.”
