ADL Commends Facebook for Removing Anti-Jewish Conspiracy Page

New York, NY, January 4, 2018 ... Facebook has removed a disgusting and highly controversial anti-Semitic page that has been on its platform for at least five years. The page peddled one of the worst anti-Jewish conspiracies from medieval times: Jewish ritual murder of non-Jews.

Said Jonathan Greenblatt, Anti-Defamation League CEO and National Director:

“We have been calling for the removal of this hateful, anti-Semitic Facebook page since 2014. It’s long overdue that Facebook took it down, but we’re glad they did. Media platforms are taking steps to counter hate and now it’s time to accelerate this work. That’s why we established our Center for Technology and Society and we will be working with the platforms to get ahead of the hate and abuse that is dangerous for our society.”

The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. Today it is the world’s leading organization combating anti-Semitism, exposing hate groups, training law enforcement on hate crimes, developing anti-bias education programs for students, countering cyber-hate and relentlessly pursuing equal rights for all.
