Facebook is bowing to Islam because of an authoritarian threat from Turkey. Everywhere Islam has its hands, sooner or later freedom is gone, and if not, then immediately peace is gone.
If Facebook would be banned in the Islamic world (to which we can also count Turkey), then that would definitely have palpable effects on the “operating funds.”
Last year, Turkey temporarily blocked access to Twitter and YouTube. It happened easily: all that was needed was a court decision in Ankara in order to block Facebook pages that insulted the prophet Mohammed.
A Turkish court has ordered authorities to block access to Facebook pages that ‘insult’ the Prophet Mohammed and warned the whole site will be banned if the company doesn’t comply.
The country’s state-run news agency confirmed that a court in Ankara issued the order yesterday, following a request by a prosecutor.
The decision comes just days after another court ruling banned access in Turkey to web pages featuring the controversial cover of the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo depicting the Prophet Mohammed.
Mark Zuckerberg, in connection with the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo editorial staff, said that his business wouldn’t censor content, and that Facebook would not let itself be dictated “by a group of people” as to what people may share worldwide.
According to statistics published by Facebook, 1,893 pages were completely deleted at the request of the Turkish government, Dailymail reports. Upon inquiry, Facebook then admitted they had “cooperated.” Likewise in Pakistan’s case where Facebook bowed to the pressure of the islamic dictatorship and blocked certain pages for Pakistan.
