Tell Meta: We Need to Talk About Genocide 


Tell Meta: We Need to Talk About Genocide 

Amidst the horrific attacks on Gaza, the intensifying bombardment of over one million sheltering in Rafah, and in light of the International Court of Justice proceedings determining the plausibility that Israel is carrying out genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza—Meta is choosing this moment to further silence and censor Palestinians and critics of Israeli actions and policies. The social media giant is considering restricting speech critical of “Zionists”— by expanding when they interpret “Zionist” as a proxy for “Jew/Jewish” under their hate speech policy. 

Tell Meta: We Need to Talk About Genocide 

This policy change would be incredibly dangerous, as social media is often Palestinians’ only means of documenting human rights abuses and sharing their daily realities with the world. Palestinians should be able to name the political ideology that impacts their survival without fearing reprisals. Anti-Zionist and non-Zionist Jews should be able to criticize the ideology that claims to represent them. And human rights defenders should be able to hold the Israeli military and government accountable — now, more than ever.
