Does Facebook Support a Second Holocaust?


And it’s not hard to guess which side they appear to be taking. I received this email this morning:
I’d like to inform David Swindle that the facebook group “Expel Jumanah Imad Albahri From UC San Diego” was deleted by facebook where as an opposing group “Do not Expel Jumanah Imad Albahri From UC [...]
