A newly formed coalition pushing for Facebook to be broken up merges liberal economic groups with extreme anti-Israel activist groups, who have long complained that the social media giant censors its content.
The Freedom from Facebook coalition, launched on Monday, links groups such as the Open Markets Institute, Citizens Against Monopoly, and Sum of Us, all focused on challenging the power of large corporations, with two anti-Israel advocacy groups, Jewish Voice for Peace and MPower Change, a “Muslim led social and racial justice organization” founded by Linda Sarsour.
“Facebook has too much power over our lives and democracy,” the group’s new site says.
The article goes on to state the following:
Freedom from Facebook’s aim is to pressure the Federal Trade Commission to break up Facebook. It wants the FTC to split Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger, all networks owned by Facebook, into independent businesses, and “require interoperability” between social networks to limit Facebook’s “monopoly.”
Palestinian activists have complained that Facebook improperly censors their content on the network, which is used to organize uprisings against Israel.
Earlier this year Palestinian activists said Facebook was “waging war on the Palestinians” by removing posts glorifying Ahmed Jarrar, a Hamas terrorist who murdered an Israeli rabbi.
“The Facebook administration has given up to the dictates of the Israeli occupation by violating Palestinian content, especially with regard to Palestinians killed by Israeli forces, such as martyr Ahmed Jarrar,” activists said.
