‘It was a very clever, deceptive plan by Islamic radicals.’
A pro-Israel page with over 77 million followers has been shut down by Facebook after a “cyber terrorism” campaign by “radical Islamic” groups targeted it with hate speech.
“Jerusalem Prayer Group” Founder Mike Evans said critics bombarded the page with “more than a million” comments, CBN reported.
“There was an organized attempt by radical Islamic organizations to achieve this objective,” Evans said.
“It was a very clever, deceptive plan by Islamic radicals,” he said.
Evans said the flood of complaints about supposed fake posts was “a complete scam and fraud.”
He told Arutz Sheva 7 that the page was flooded with anti-Semitic comments, including photos of and quotes by Hitler so they could complain about it violating the social media giant’s policies.
Evans added he got the unexpected message that Facebook had removed the page when he was in Israel ready to host a star-studded TV special.
Facebook stated the case was “complete,” and there was “no further action” to be taken.
