Featured Video Play Icon

As Israeli officials like Ayelet Shaked publicly boast about how Facebook is compliant in deleting content that Israel deems “incitement” after threatening the company with fines and travel bans, much of the truth about Israel-Palestine is hidden from the public. This makes it easier for Israel and its pundits to term any and all criticism as “anti-semitic”.

But what really is anti-semitism, and will Facebook remove this video even though it logically shreds that argument?
