Netanyahu’s Facebook page suspended

Reading Time: 1 minute

Facebook has sanctioned Benjamin Netanyahu’s official page, after a post called on voters to oppose a government composed of “Arabs who want to destroy us all – women, children and men.”

Facebook said the post violated its hate speech policy.

Facebook consequently disabled the page’s automatic chat function for 24 hours.

The Israeli prime minister has denied writing the post and suggested that a staffer’s mistake was responsible.

The right-wing president is campaigning to retain his office in an election next week.
