Radical Muslims Call for Intifada Against Israel; Facebook Page Says Terror War to Begin May 15

The Examiner website reports today (March 28, 2011) that a radical Islamic group -- using a page on Facebook -- is calling for a third Palestinian Intifada (war of terror) to begin on May 15, 2011. The page has over 330,000 "friends."

The two previous intifadas -- in 1987 and 2000 -- resulted in the deaths of thousands of unarmed, innocent Israeli civilians.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has described the Facebook page as "an appalling abuse of technology to promote terrorist violence."

Israel has written to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg -- who is an American Jew -- to point out that the Facebook page in question includes "calling for the killing of Israelis and Jews and the liberating of Palestine through acts of violence."

Facebook issued a statement yesterday -- in response to the ADL and Israeli complaints -- saying, "We strongly believe that Facebook users have the ability to express their opinions, and we don't typically take down content, groups, or pages that speak out against countries, religions, political entities, or ideas."
