    Default Dealing with anti-Semitism on the internet

    sad but true that antisemitism arises almost everywhere.
    on Facebook, there is something called the Jewish Internet Defense Force . we go around and report en masse all the hateful/racist pages on facebook. our most recent victory was a "I Hate Israel" page with over 122k people, and the topics discussed were appalling: "how to destroy israel and kill all the jews" and "we have to finish what hitler started" and the like. after about a few thousand people reported it, it was taken off. now we are trying to take off " the jews and their Holocaust bull ".
    the fight goes on.

    That would be much cooler if you renamed it the Jewish Electronic Defense Initiative.

    It's good to know your hearts in the right place, but in all honestly you'll never be able to shut every anti-semetic page down. There's plenty of other racist hate out there as well, why don't you expand your group to counter racism instead of just anti-semetism?

    edit: lol found this in one group..

    "that is true, they create always viruses and plant them to different areas on earth.
    the zionists are no1 danger. that is why all countries were throwing the jews away from their lands."

    You heard it here first folks..

    we do that too. but we focus on anti-semitism, since FB does a decent job of taking down the racists sites like "i hate black people" and stuff like that, but arent as good as taking down the anti-semitic sites. we also try to take down anti-arab racist sites as well, btw. a bit ago we took down a site called "kill all muslims."

    I couldn't give two stones of a care about what some idiots say on the internet. I find it laughable that you do. Plus the SERIOUS BUSINNES name you gave a group of internet users who are pissed off at some person they'll never meet is also hilarious.

    Nope, I don't take the "JEDI" seriously. My post explains why. I show no amount of seriousness . I guess I got fairly serious on the fact that I DON'T CARE what racism is put on the internet from some guy you don't know and will never meet

    I think you over estimate the effectiveness of closing down a club and putting a "Mass Jew Conspiracy to Get Us" in the minds of these people then, you know, debating them and educating them.

    But you CAN educate them. And you can also stop feeding their beliefs of "Mass Jewish Conspiracy to Get Us".

    What group? Internet Mossad? I'm shocked you'd be in a group that HAD a "Hitler=Hero" member in it. I'd leave on the spot.

    you just said that we should try to counter the anti-semitism, not shut the sites down. the only way to counter is to join the groups.
    there actually is a page called " the jews and thier holocaust "

    It's Facebook. You're supposed to stalk chicks, not neo-nazis.

    You got kicked out of a neo nazi group for countering neo nazi arguments. Wow, shocker. At least you tried.

    Shut them down and feed their paranoia. Better just to ignore them and recommend others to ignore them too.

    and how do you go about telling everyone to stay away? FB has millions of members, and we cant reach all of them.

    A competing group offering logical rebuttals to their hate could do the trick.

    FB also has numerous groups. Do you have specialised watchdogs looking through every one? Either way, it's fairly futile.
