Israeli Justice Minister Eyelet Shaked and Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan have gone public with details of a proposed bill which will force internet companies to remove content which the government deems to be promoting terror, Safa news agency reported yesterday.

The bill would empower courts to order social media providers like Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter to remove content that is in itself criminal as well as constitutes a danger to personal, public or state security.

The proposal comes after Shaked met with top Facebook officials in June. Previously, Facebook has rejected or not replied to many requests by police for the removal of content Israel deems to be criminal or terrorism-promoting.

    “FACEBOOK, don’t you dare criticize us, Israel has the right to threaten Iran and all our neighbors every day, but no one has the right to threaten us. Israel has a right to exist, but the Palestinians do not. Israel has a right to nuclear weapons, but nobody else does. Israel has a right to demand money from the US taxpayer, but nobody has a right to demand anything in return! Israel has a right to bribe and tell other governments what they should do, but no government has a right to interfere with Israel! All what we need from you putzes in DC are those ‘vetoes’ at the UN, that regular US aid check, and to kill our enemies for us! That is your job! Anyone who disagrees is just a filthy Jew-hating anti-Semite who wants Hitler to come back and gas Jewish babies!!!”
