Người sử dụng FACEBOOK vào tù vì những bài viết, hình ảnh đưa lên trang, thậm chí ngay cả nhấn “Yêu Thích” (like) vào những bài viết có quan điểm mà NHÀ NƯỚC không thích cũng vào tù.
Hiện tượng này không chỉ giới hạn tại những xã hội độc tài phi “dân chủ” như Việt Nam Trung Quốc A Rập v.v , mà đang tăng dần ngay cả những xã hội được tuyên bố là “dân chủ hàng đầu” như Do Thái, Anh Mỹ Âu Úc… Nhưng Do Thái là nơi đứng đầu cấu kết với FACEBOOK trong chủ đích ĐIỀU KIỆN HÓA XÃ HỘI để CAI TRỊ qua mạng thông tin toàn cầu này.
Số THỐNG KÊ cho biết 27 % tất cả những người dùng mạng liên tín thường là cư dân của những quốc gia có “luật” bắt những ai ĐĂNG TẢI, SAN SẺ hay ngay cả nhấn nút YÊU THÍCH những bài viết hình ảnh mà CHÍNH PHỦ không đồng ý.
Trong năm 2016 đã có 38 quốc gia chính phủ tiến hành bắt giữ truy tố và bỏ tù người dùng mạng thông tin “trái chiều và ngoài lề”. Phần lớn là do FACEBOOK đã đồng thuận cung cấo những thông tin về người chủ tín mục và tư mục tại FACEBOOK qua hệ thống tự động kiểm duyệt và kiểm tra của FACEBOOK (detecting algorithm).
Người ta và báo chí chính qui thường lầm lẫn và cố tình bẻ hướng thông tin khi ồn ào lên án một hay hai nhân vật hay nhóm nào đó có những tuyên bố mạnh mẽ về di dân hay chính sách kinh tế là PHÁT XÍT … để quên đi rằng từ sau Thế Chiến 1945, hay ít nhất trong hơn hai (2) thập niên qua, hệ thống nhà nước Âu Mỹ (chính trị kinh tế xã hội) chính là hệ thống PHÁT XÍT đúng nghĩa nhất: SỰ CẤU KẾT và SỬ DỤNG CHẶT CHẼ HỆ THỐNG NHÀ NƯỚC CHÍNH PHỦ của các TẬP ĐOÀN ĐẠI BẢN, cũng như sự hợp tác chặt chẽ đồng điệu “phi nguyên lý pháp trị” của ba (3) ngành chính phủ lẽ ra “phân lập” và “kiểm soát” “ngăn chặn” lẫn nhau. Bản chất của quyền chính thì không thể khác!
Russia: Facebook Double Standards Enable Targeting of Palestinians
Is this evidence of Russia’s deteriorating relationship with Israel?
Sputnik/Moscow: Instances of individuals being prosecuted and/or jailed for their social media activities are on the increase the world over. Israel is a world leader in this phenomenon, arresting hundreds annually for their posts – although similar behavior by Israelis is censured neither by Facebook nor the Israeli government.
Data suggests 27 percent of all internet users reside in countries where people can be arrested for publishing, sharing, or even merely “liking” content on Facebook. Authorities in 38 countries made arrests based on social media posts over 2016 — by contrast, people were arrested for content published on news sites or blogs in 21 countries.
Facebookers in Palestine are perhaps the people who need to think most carefully before they post. Between 2015 and 2016, Israeli authorities arrested over 400 Palestinians between 2015 and 2016 because of content they circulated online. Some posted inflammatory remarks, others merely shared news stories. A cursory glance at Facebook’s official Requests Report for Israel shows the company responded positively to over 70 percent of the government’s 432 requests for user data between January and June 2016 alone. By comparison, Facebook responded positively to just 16 percent of the Jordanian government’s (25) requests.
While some cases didn’t proceed to court, around 200 remain embroiled in legal proceedings as of April 2017. A particularly notorious instance is Palestinian poet Dareen Tatour, who faces an eight year prison term for posting a poem on her Facebook page in 2015.

Still, Facebook’s role in Israeli actions against the Palestinian people goes far further. In September 2016, Facebook signed an official agreement with Israel to crack down on “online incitement” by Palestinians — alerting officials to and removing questionable content.
While Facebook theoretically has autonomy over which posts are removed, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked has said within the first four months of the agreement’s operation, Facebook granted 95 percent of the 158 requests the government submitted to the company.
Facebook has also shut down down Facebook pages upon request. In September 2016, the personal Facebook accounts of four editors from the Shehab News Agency and three editors from the Quds News Network were disabled without explanation. In March, the network temporarily closed the official page of Palestinian party Fatah after it shared an old photo of former leader Yasser Arafat holding a rifle.

In a sense, Facebook can’t be blamed — the international social media giant is merely acting in compliance with Israeli law on online incitement. Nonetheless, the company’s crackdown on seditious content in its pages is seemingly directed in one direction — Palestine.
A report published by The Arab Center for Social Media Advancement (7amleh) details how Israelis posted highly incendiary content about Palestinians 675,000 times in 2016 (or, every 46 seconds) on social media without censure. Examples included “rape all Arabs and throw them in the sea,” and “a morning with lots of energy to slaughter Arabs.”
It’s not merely citizens responsible for the deluge — in 2014, the aforementioned Shaked posted a Facebook status suggesting the mothers of Palestinian fighters should be killed and their homes destroyed. No action was taken against her by Facebook — or the Netanyahu government.

Palestinian politicians, both inside the occupied territories and Israel itself, are common targets for abuse by Israelis.
Knesset member Haneen Zoabi bore the brunt of the abuse in 2016, attracting 60,000 posts, ranging from insults to death threats. Her parliamentary colleague Ahmed Tibi was the subject of 40,000 posts, closely followed by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas with 30,000 and Ayman Odeh with 25,000. Basil Ghattas was verbally abused in 15,000, and Abnaa Sakhnin Football Club was singled out in 14,000.
It appears unlikely Facebook will end its collaboration with Israel — after all, the network is entering similar agreements with other countries, including Germany, to combat the spread of hate speech and “fake news” via its platform.
Nonetheless, the company could, as a coalition of 70 US social and racial justice organizations urged in January adopt reforms that would better target abusive content and harassment while ceasing to censor political speech.
The collective was moved to contact Facebook as activists in the Movement for Black Lives have routinely reported the takedown of images of protests, with the justification that it violates Facebook’s Community Standards — while simultaneously, harassment and threats directed at activists based on their race, religion, and sexual orientation “thrives” on Facebook. Many activists have reported harassment and threats by users and pages on Facebook only to be told that they don’t violate Facebook’s Community Standards.
Censorship on Facebook is not a minor issue — as the case of Korryn Gaines demonstrates, it can literally be a matter of life and death.
In 2016, the Baltimore woman live-streamed her standoff with police, only for Facebook to end the video at the request of law enforcement. She was subsequently killed.
A Maryland woman was fatally shot by police on Monday, and her five year old son shot and injured, after an hours-long armed standoff with police.
Korryn Shandawn Gaines, 23, was armed with a long gun and had barricaded herself in her apartment while holding her son. She repeatedly threatened to shoot the officers in the presence of her child.

In videos uploaded just before her death, she is heard talking to her son, coaxing him to say that the police are coming to try and kill them — and demanding that they need to fight.

“We don’t want to kill you, we’re your friends,” an officer is heard in one of the videos telling the young boy.
“Do you believe that?” Gaines aggressively asks her child.
“No,” the boy replies.
The incident began around 9:20 AM local time when Baltimore police arrived at Gaines’ Randallstown apartment to serve her with a warrant for failing to appear in court on an array charges including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. The police also intended to serve warrants on a man who was also at the residence, Kareem Kiean Courtney, 39, for assault.
When police arrived at the scene, they could hear people inside — including a crying child — but there was no response at the door. They obtained a key to the apartment from a landlord shortly after.
Upon opening the door to the apartment, police reportedly saw Gaines sitting on the floor with a long gun pointed at him — so he called for SWAT backup and began to evacuate the building.
“When our detectives arrived at the scene, they found that the woman was armed and there was a juvenile in the apartment with her. So at that point, our detectives backed off, not only to call additional resources, but to ensure the safety of the community and bring a safe resolution to this incident,” Baltimore County police Cpl. John Wachter told WBAL.
Courtney had attempted to flee with a one-year-old baby, but was apprehended outside.
For hours, the police negotiated back and forth with Gaines, who was inside with her five-year-old son. She allegedly made continuous threats to the officers while pointing her weapon at them.
“We are of course extremely upset at an event like this,” police spokeswoman Elise Armacost told reporters. “We do not like to be in a position of having to use lethal force, but this was a situation where our officers exercised patience for hours and hours.”
At 3 PM, the situation escalated when Gaines pointed her weapon at a tactical officers and reportedly stated, “if you don’t leave, I’m going to kill you,” according to Armacost.
At this point, an officer opened fire and Gaines fired back two shots. Police returned fire again, and Gaines was hit multiple times. Her son was also shot in an extremity during the exchange, but it remains unclear whether he was shot by police or his mother. He was taken to a hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
No officers were shot or injured.
“It was a terrible situation to have the little boy in the house with her, her son, who is at the hospital,” Andre Brady, a relative of Gaines’ relative, told WBAL. “But he’s OK.”
The officers involved have been placed on administrative leave and the incident is under investigation.
This was the third officer involved shooting in the county this year, and the first that was fatal.
