The foreign Ministry today called on governments around the world to regulate social media in order to combat anti-Semitism and violent incitement, reiterating the government’s support last year for Internet censorship during an anti-racism conference.

Speaking at the annual gathering of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in Jerusalem, Akiva Tor, the director of the Foreign Ministry’s Department for Jewish Communities, stated that while the issue is certainly controversial for Americans, it is important to discern the nature of the Internet and to act accordingly.

“What is YouTube? What is Facebook? What is Twitter? And what is Google?” he asked. “Are they a free speech corner like [London’s] Hyde Park or are they more similar to a radio station in the public domain?” Referring to cartoons of Palestinians killing Jews and other such material circulating online, Tor asked why platforms such as Google search, You- Tube, Facebook and Twitter are “tolerating” violent incitement and “saying they are protected in a holy way by free speech.”

“How is it possible that the government of France and the European Union all feel that incitement in Arabic on social media in Europe calling for physical attacks on Jews is permitted and that there is no requirement from industry to do something about it,” he continued, adding that Israel is working with European partners to push the technology sector to adopt a definition of anti-Semitism so its constituent companies can “take responsibility for what they host.”

Tor also took issue with Facebook for its position that it will take down material that violates its terms of service following a complaint, asking why the social-networking giant cannot self-regulate and use the technology at its disposal to identify and take down offending content automatically.

“If they know how to deliver a specific ad to your Facebook page, they know how to detect speech in Arabic calling to stab someone in the neck. It is outrageous [that technology] companies hide behind the First Amendment. Industry won’t correct itself without regulatory requirements by governments,” he asserted.

Following the Foreign Ministry’s biennial Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism last year, a similar statement was issued calling for the scrubbing of Holocaust denial websites from the Internet and the omission of “hate websites and content” from web searches.

Citing the “pervasive, expansive and transnational” nature of the Internet and the viral nature of hate materials, that conference’s final document called upon Internet service providers, web hosting companies and social media platforms to adopt a “clear industry standard for defining hate speech and anti-Semitism” as well as terms of service that prohibit their posting.

Such moves, the document asserted, must be implemented while preserving the Internet’s “essential freedom.”

The GFCA document called upon national governments to establish legal units focused on combating cyberhate and to utilize existing legislation to prosecute those engaging in such prejudices online.

Governments, likewise, should require the adoption of “global terms of service prohibiting the posting of hate speech and anti-Semitic materials,” it was recommended.

  1. Next time an American Politico Apologist for Israel tells you they are the only democracy in the Middle East, something to throw back in their face!

    Disgusting!

  2. Reblogged this on Memory Hole and commented:
    Israel and every other country throughout the world lack any ‘First Amendment’-style constitutional provisions for reasons that are becoming more and more apparent. ‘War on terror’ itself is de facto censorship.

  3. Isn’t it about time citizens of the United States wake up an realize that Israel is part of the supra-governmental oligargy that has occupied our country, and now they want to use “ANTI-SEMITISM” to justify curtailing your free speech, and covering up their crimes (as they have always done) by labeling any criticism of Jews/Zionist/Israel “anti-semitism?”

  4. Reblogged this on Today,s Thought.

  5. Oh, REALLY?…
    Well I call upon Jews like George Soros and Barbara Lerner Spectre, among a throng of others, to stop supporting white genocide through forced mass migration and their constant calls in the media for white miscegenation.

    As a matter of fact, I call for the governments of the world to put an end, LEGALLY, to Jewish ethnic nepotism and bigotry in the banking industry, the Universities, the televised & print media, and the movie industry.

    How about THAT, Israel?

  6. What they really want is to regulate the truth , all truth and every truth

  7. The best way to combat anti-Semitism is to outlaw Judaism
