Palestine: Facebook Censorship

Palestinian blogger Haitham Sabbah explains the reasons why he might soon disappear from Facebook here.

  • This is actually ironic that Haitham is complaining about potential censorship on FB when he in fact is censoring others. I, for once, can actually relate to one of the complains filed against him because as of a few days ago he blocked me from commenting on his blog too. You can see the entire story on my blog (including the latest developments) and judge by yourself if I actually did something deserving censorship.
    This may explain however why there is no real discussion on his blog, but only voices reaffirming his own opinions.

  • I don’t get how someone not showing your comments on their personal blog means they shouldn’t have a facebook account.

  • I didn’t suggest that he shouldn’t have a FB account. If i understand Haitham’s post correctly, he is talking about complains against his applications on FB that use the content of the blogs he manages. This is totally different from FB account. But regardless my comment was about amusement by the fact that one Haitham, who censors himself, is complaining about potential censorship.
