The social media giant Facebook has blocked the account of Yair Netanyahu, the eldest son of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his anti-Islamic tweet. The blockage on social media provoked the Prime Minister’s son to criticize Facebook on Twitter.

“Unbelievable. Facebook blocks me for 24 hours for simply criticizing it! Thought police,” wrote the eldest, Yair Netanyahu on Twitter. He called Facebook a ‘Thought Police’ in his post for removing his anti-Islamic posts and placing a brief ban on him.

Nair Netanyahu has been under constant criticism for his radical posts against Muslims, Palestinians, and Left-Wing Israeli activists.

The tweet included the screenshot of his Facebook post calling for “avenging the death” of Staff Sergeant  Yovel Mor Yosef, 20, and Sergeant  Yosef Cohen, 19 who were killed at the Givat Assaf Junction shooting last week.

Condemning the death of two soldiers Yair Netanyahu wrote: “There will never be peace with those monsters in the form of men that have called themselves ‘Palestinians’ since 1964.” He wrote that Facebook was “trying to shut our mouths in the only place where we have the right to express our opinions,” and, in violation of the site’s community rules, included a screenshot of the original post.

“The thought police of the radical progressives at Facebook have reached me as well! Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Iranian regime have official pages on Facebook. There are also endless pages calling for the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews. Thousands of violent and extreme left-wing posts against me and my family, including threats of physical violence and immoral murder threats.” Netanyahu Junior charged.

“All of these do not violate Facebook’s community rules,” he complained.

Facebook removed his several other anti-Islamic posts that reflected his bigotry.

In another pair of posts removed from the site, Netanyahu wrote:

“There will not be peace here until:

  1. All the Jews leave the land of Israel.
  2. All the Muslims leave the land of Israel.

I prefer the second option.”

In a subsequent post, he added: “Do you know where there are no terror attacks? In Iceland and Japan. Coincidentally there’s also no Muslim population there.”
