Facebook Removes "Third Palestinian Intifada" Page

After complaints by Israeli government officials and Jewish organizations in the United States, Facebook took down a page by Palestinian supporters that called for violence against Jews and an uprising against Israel. The page, entitled “Third Palestinian Intifada,” began earlier this month as a call for peaceful protests in the occupied Palestinian territories on May 15, one of more than a dozen Facebook pages that have been used in recent months to mobilize uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa.
