Facebook bans pages calling for Palestinian uprising


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (photo) shut down pages on his social network that were calling for an uprising in Palestine to begin on May 15, the date marked by Palestinians as the Nakba.

Since the 6th of March, several Facebook pages have called for a third intifada. They garnered up to half a million supporters.

Facebook made the decision to pull at the request of the Israeli authorities.
