Today, Facebook Removes Hizbullah Pages – Following MEMRI Series On Hizbullah Facebook Activity

October 17, 2012

MEMRI’s series of articles on Hizbullah’s Facebook activity and its multiple Facebook pages was followed by Facebook’s August 2012 removal of Hizbullah and Al-Manar pages; MEMRI’s activity against Hizbullah’s social media activities has been reported by the Lebanese media.

Following this removal of the previous Hizbullah and Al-Manar TV Facebook pages, andafter vowing to return to Facebook, Hizbullah created two new Facebook pages for its Al-Manar TV, as MEMRI reported on August 22, 2012.

Last night, Facebook removed these two new Hizbullah Al-Manar TV pages, as well as a page belonging to Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah. This latter page, while it was created in October 2011, has never been shut down; its removal is a new move for Facebook.  

MEMRI is continuing to monitor Hizbullah as it creates new Facebook pages.
