Dislike: Facebook names Netanyahu’s former advisor ‘head of policy’

from al Araby

Jordana Cutler, also chief of staff at the Israeli embassy in Washington, has joined Facebook’s Israel office to oversee the planning and execution of measures taken to combat BDS campaigns.

Cutler’s new post was applauded by the minister of public security Gilad Erdan, who announced on Thursday a series of legislative measures taken by his government against promoting the boycott of Israel.

“If we want to convince the world that de-legitimation of Israel is something wrong and that there should be consequences, we must start here in Israel,” Erdan was quoted by Israeli media as saying during a conference in Herzliya.

“There will now be a real price to pay for someone working […] to isolate [Israel] from the rest of the world. I set up a legal team, together with the ministry of justice, that will promote governmental legislation on the matter,” Erdan said.

There has been an advance in dialogue between the state of Israel and Facebook,” he said, “Facebook realises that it has a responsibility to monitor its platform and remove content. I hope it will be regulated for good.”

  1. I’ve been thinking I need to get off of Facebook anyway. This may be a good time.

    • the other day my cell phone told me I had a number of updates to do. the first asked a question about giving Facebook access to the microphone on my phone. I said “no” but I doubt that was really an option.

    • Before signing up with Facebook is the best time to get away from it. ou know what Facebook is really.
