Facebook launches new guide for Muslims, telling them how to report “hate speech”

( Mus;lis do not assimilate!! They infiltrate!! )

“Hate speech” is a subjective category. What is or is not classified as “hate speech” depends upon the preconceptions and perspectives of the one doing the judging. For Facebook, the judges are Sharia-compliant, and consider honest analysis of the motives and goals of jihad terrorists to be “hate speech.”

Facebook’s Vice President Joel Kaplan traveled to Pakistan in July to assure the Pakistani government that it would remove “anti-Islam” material. That endeavor had already started before Kaplan’s trip. In mid-February, traffic to Jihad Watch from Facebook dropped suddenly by 90% and has never recovered. We do not post any hateful or provocative material and neither incite nor approve of violence, but Facebook is acting as judge, jury and executioner in all this. There is no appeal and no recourse.

“Facebook targets hate crime against Muslims,” by Caroline Wilson, Evening Times, November 28, 2017 (thanks to Lookmann):

FACEBOOK has launched a new guide for the Muslim community to help improve online safety and give advice on reporting hate speech.

Keeping Muslims Safe Online: Tackling Hate and Bigotry includes information on how to tackle and respond to hateful content on the social network in a positive way, as well as details on how to report content inspired by terrorism.

It has been produced in partnership with community group Faith Associates and will be made available online as well as distributed to mosques around the UK.

The new guide is the first piece of work to come from Facebook’s Online Civil Courage Initiative (OCCI), which launched earlier this year as a programme to fight extremism and hate speech online.

Faith Associates chief executive Shaukat Warraich said the guide would be an important tool for Muslims on the site.

“We have seen the dramatic rise of Islamophobic rhetoric and terrorist-inspired content that manifests online and appreciate Facebook’s effort in supporting grass roots organisations to enhance the knowledge and develop the skills of Muslim users to directly deal with it when they see it,” he said.

“I am confident that this guide will be well received in the Muslim community and will empower Muslim users of Facebook with the confidence and resilience to become effective in identifying and tackling the risks that exist online.

“The guide will also aid the development of mosques, madrassas and imams in their efforts to deliver a holistic service to their constituencies.

“Faith Associates will be working closely with them to help deliver training on e-safety and facilitate spaces for conversation around pertinent social issues.”

Facebook has received extensive criticism in the past over its policing of explicit, dangerous and extreme content on the site, and has been warned by the Government it must be more proactive in removing such content.

Simon Milner, the social network’s head of policy in the UK, said the company is using multiple techniques to fight unsuitable material.

“Facebook welcomes all communities and there is no place for hate on the platform,” he said….

ALERT ALERT

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports law.com.

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office. -law.com

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
