[Jpost] Fatah closed its own Facebook page, according to page administrator Munir al-Jaghoub.|
In an interview with Israeli media, Jaghoub said that, "We decided to close it down for a period of time as a precautionary measure. We were worried that Facebook would shut it down permanently because of that Israeli organization’s campaign and complaints against it."

Jaghoub was referring to the watchdog organization Paleostinian Media Watch (PMW), which has run a year-long campaign against the official Facebook page of Fatah, the Paleostinian Authority’s ruling party. Since February, PMW has released two separate, roughly 45-page reports documenting the ways in which the page was being used to glorify mass murderers and terrorists, who were responsible for hundreds of deaths.
Itamar Marcus, PMW’s CEO, recently spoke with the head of Facebook’s global counterterrorism policy team, Brian Fishman, about the organization’s findings. Marcus likewise accused the accused the social media giant of being "Fatah’s partner by choice" and of "promoting Paleostinian terrorism."
Earlier this month, PMW also launched a viral social media campaign called #CloseFatahFB.
A spokeswoman for Facebook told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday that it had not shut down the page, but was "in the process of reviewing that content to determine whether it violates our policies."
Marcus said that PMW views Fatah’s decision to close the page "as a striking indicator of the terror content" and that "there is no justification for Facebook to permit Fatah to reopen its page.
"We hope that Facebook will recognize what Fatah itself understands ‐ namely that its Facebook page promotes terror ‐ and keep Fatah’s page permanently closed," Marcus continued. "Facebook should not allow the Facebook platform to become once again a controller for Paleostinian terror promotion."
