Alert the Government

Sample Letter You Can Use:

To those within our Government,

I would like to alert you to an issue of increasing importance that is occurring on the internet.  Pro-terrorist and anti-Semitic content on the web poses a serious threat. Much of this content can be found on areas like Facebook, YouTube, Blogger, WordPress, Wikipedia, etc.  Please do whatever you can to help combat the serious problems of pro-terrorist and other hate groups all over Facebook (and the web.)  I feel much of the activity happening here may be illegal (since there are groups actively promoting illegal terrorist groups) and that a proper government investigation should be considered.

This content is often against these ISP’s own terms. For example, Facebook’s terms state:

One cannot “upload, post, transmit, share, store or otherwise make available any content that we deem to be harmful, threatening, unlawful, defamatory, infringing, abusive, inflammatory, harassing, vulgar, obscene, fraudulent, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable”

Also, one cannot “upload, post, transmit, share, store or otherwise make available content that would constitute, encourage or provide instructions for a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party, or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national or international law”

Despite a massive campaign to report these groups to Facebook and to the Media, Facebook barely made a dent in removing them. However, I do give them credit for removing 106 problematic groups impacting over 125,000 people active in them (due to the concentrated effort of reporting groups by the JIDF.)  Still, there are hundreds more which have not been deleted despite thousands of complaints. There are also many more new groups created daily, so the problem is spiraling out of control.  Therefore hatred and cyber jihadists continue to grow stronger despite operating against Facebook’s terms, and in some cases against international and regional laws.

I appreciate your help in this matter, which helps to keep the citizens of this country and those around the world safe.  Seeing all of this hateful content makes me feel uncomfortable online and I would like to see our government doing more about it as another important front in the war which I feel is being neglected.
