Facebook closes pro-Israel page with over 75 million followers

The Jerusalem Prayer Group (JPT), founded in 2002, with over 75 million followers has been shut down by Facebook. The site’s founder, Mike Evans, told CBN News that the Facebook page has become a target of Islamic extremists.

Facebook has shut down a pro-Israel page with millions of followers, as the worst conflict in years continues in the Gaza Strip, CBN News reports.

“Pray for Israel” founder Mike Evans claimed that protesters targeted the page by posting “over a million” comments then reported that they had never posted to the page.

“There has been an organized effort by radical Islamic organizations to achieve this goal. They posted over a million comments on our page, and then these people contacted Facebook saying they had never posted on the page. It’s totally a scam and fraud. It’s a very clever, contrived scheme by radical Muslims,” ​​Evans said.

He also said the posts included a series of anti-Semitic comments.

According to Evans, the attack happened in two ways.

The first was a direct campaign to take down the page. Multiple posts on Facebook and YouTube taught people how to access and report the page to Facebook and how to pressure Facebook to take it down from their platform.

The second is the disinformation campaign, which alleges that the site forces people to “like” it even if they don’t “like”.

Evans offered no evidence for his claims.

After being closed, the page called on Facebook to restore their page.

However, Facebook replied that the case was “Done” and said, “This page has been removed by our system for not complying with the policy. We’re unfortunately unable to review appeals at this time due to a reviewer shortage caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Since you can’t access the Page, this means you can no longer appeal. We are unable to take any further action on this page. Please consider this decision final.”

A spokesperson for the company Facebook told the NY Post: “We’ve removed the Jerusalem Prayer Group Facebook page for violating our rules on spam and inauthentic behavior.”

“Facebook has made it clear what they are… biased against conservative media sources,” Mr. Evans said. This is a prime example of this bias. In my opinion, it is cyber terrorism based on racism. I reached out to friends, such as Senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, my close friends, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Jared Kushner, and dozens of other political leaders to assist me in my reporting. this fraudulent scheme”.
