Facebook shut down a pro-Israel page called “Jerusalem Prayer Group” where users were encouraged to participate in daily prayers for the country of Israel amid extremely tense ongoing conflicts in the Middle East. The page, created by Mike Evans, had nearly 80 million followers before Facebook decided the page, “violated our rules against spam and inauthentic behavior.” According to Human Events, Evans said the page was bombarded with thousands of anti-Semitic comments and Nazi pictures and propaganda which resulted in individuals reporting the page for “hate speech.” Due to the thousands of anti-Semitic comments on his page, Evans described it as a “coordinated act of cyberterrorism.” When Evans appealed Facebook’s decision, he was told that there was “no further action” to be taken, and to “please consider this decision final,” reports. Facebook banned Evans for “inauthentic behavior” and the company’s spokesperson told reporters that Evans’ page has “violated our rules against spam and inauthentic behavior.”
