A group makes a Facebook experiment to test moderator bias. After creating fake anti-Israel and anti-Palestine Facebook pages with similar messages, both pages were reported simultaneously. Only one page was deleted.
A video from the Israeli group Shurat HaDin claims to expose the pro-Palestine bias from Facebook.
The video, called 'The big facebook experiment', shows that two identical Facebook pages are created. One called 'Stop Palestinians' and the other 'Stop Israelis'.
Both pages were updated with similar 'inciting posts and videos'. Each subsequent post would be more and more provocative.
“Death to all the Jews” reads an anti-Israel post while the pro-Palestine post reads “death to all the arabs.”
After even more content was posted, both pages were reported to Facebook. On the same day the anti-Palestine page was taken down from Facebook.
The group received two messages from Facebook. The first said that the anti-Palestine page went against Facebook's community standards and was a 'credible threat of violence'. However, the anti-Israel page was not.
The video closes with a message saying the page inciting violence against Jews is still open today.
