Facebook’s New “Feature”| Customs Department => “Machsom Hasefer HaPaneem” Please Line Up and Hold your Passport Ready! | Muting Palestine Posters & Bloggers

Jan 21, 2011 by OccuppiedPalestine

Yesterday Umm Hajar’s Facebook page was disabled again. For the third time.


Kindly notice, the pages seem to be visible on FB, but not accessible for Umm. She is receiving a lot of friendrequest which are send to the email linked to the account but is not able to access to post nor confirm. Appreciating all your support highly!

I express my concern about FB disabling the accounts for no reason. FB’s supposed to be a social site and it defeats the purpose of the service when the accounts of popular and active users are randomly disabled, thus cutting them off from their network of contacts and destroying irrevocably what they have spent months and/or years building up here: photo albums, notes, groups, personal updates via facebook mobile and all the information of a personal nature stored in the mailbox, etc.

Previously it was (and that page still is disabled) on Dec 4, 2010 a friend and brother created a cause for the disabling of the Facebook account of Umm Hajar and of all those sharing news about Palestine which seem to be continuous target of deactivating, muting, restricting ordisabling by Facebook, trying to mute the truth and freedom of speech or to show solidarity with all people victimized by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, on ALL sides.

Below the appeal on the cause as posted by one of her Friends


Her personal profile was disabled on Dec 3, 2010,no reason stated at all.

Almost 8 months daily work lot of hours, lost over 25.000 newspost (of already in media published nothing new) and contacts and messages of almost 5000 friends, groups, pages, notes, religious knowledgenotes/sites. Hence, even the Eid/Holiday cards she received are all gone.

She can use our help, to stay protesting for the cause (Peace for all!) please invite your friends to her pages.

In may 2010 She started resharing news for Palestine with 0 friends.
September 2010 She almost reached limit of 5000 so started new page
Oct 23, 2010 She reached 7456 people with the newsposts
1 Page was deleted, lost 2515 friends and started again
Nov 26, 2010 she reached 7882 people with the newsposts
Yesterday the personal profile was deleted, so – 5000
-25.000 newsposts, all notes, sources, personal and other mail about religion, the cause, and all information lost.

63 Years of Occupation, massacres and Al Nakba is enough. Share the word, the pictures and the news. Awaken the world in honour of the death of these massacres, may Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala grant the martyrs Jennatul Firdaus and protect our brothers and sisters in Palestine and elsewhere in the world, and all those living in oppression or violence or danger. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabb

Update from Umm Hajar: Friend Requests and Messages Blocked for 4 Days
To prevent you from contacting people against their wishes, your friend requests and your ability to send messages to strangers have been blocked for 4 days. Friend requests are more likely to be accepted when you send them to people you already know, such as classmates, friends, family and coworkers. If you use Facebook to communicate with strangers, they have the option to report that they don’t know you or to mark the communication as spam. If this happens repeatedly, you could be viewed as violating Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.

Than i got message had to agree all pending friend request or add will be blocked and pending ones deleted or i will be disabled again. So far suggested friends… even from FB itself….

Below a overview of the friends and disabled pages:

This is an overview of the results of daily updates posting about Palestine since May 2010, and how the pages and interested friends on non public (!) profiles get zapped all the time by discriminatory Facebook rulings:

To show the interest of Umm Hajar’s updates on her pages insights of her fanpage (Jan 15, 2011)

Over 1 Million views:

Emailing Facebook

So Umm send an email to facebook, not able to receive the by Facebook required code by SMS and sends them the phonenumber (which is wiped out of the image below) to verify. Also complaint about the previous disabled accounts.


Almost day later she recieves the message below, in which Facebook is demanding a FULL COLOUR COPY of ID/Passport, anyway, something issued by a GOVERNMENT and in full color as well:


Now. Privacy and law, copyrights on passports mainly prohibit making copies, definitely when it is not for own use, or for the purpose/use by governmental institutions or persons like notaries, solicitors, banks and government departments etc. These kinds of requests, or better mark them as “demands”, are even a violation of privacy, hence, full colour copies could be abused for fraude and so on.

Besides this. it seems that the policy of Facebook is quit discriminating, for no one gets these demands and loads of people use nicknames in stead of their own name, and no one is asked about their passport (in full color mind you!)

Last but not least, Facebook not seems be willing to answer the question in previous email about the blocks and deactivating of pages at all….

Maybe they should rename FACEBOOK into FAILBOOK


Sunday, Jan 23, 2011
The Cause is updated with the next message: please send your request to… NOT on the blocked page.
Her other page is visible to YOU, but she can not enter to confirm your requests…

Justice for victims of the conflict in Gaza and southern Israel | Amnesty International

Justice for victims of the conflict in Gaza and southern Israel

“Until now we don’t understand why. We want… an investigation; we want to know why me and my sisters have been orphaned. Why did they kill our parents, our family?” (Fathiya Mousa, whose parents and siblings, aged between 14 and 28 years, were killed on 14 January 2009 in an Israeli air strike, while in their yard in the Sabra district of Gaza City.)
Between 27 December 2008 and 18 January 2009, Israel’s major military offensive on the Gaza Strip, codenamed Operation “Cast Lead”, caused massive destruction and suffering.

Amnesty International Marks Two-Year Anniversary of Gaza Conflict

Article Date: 23:32 2011/01/18
Article ID: 0084
London, January 18 (QNA) – Amnesty International said on Tuesday it was marking the two-year “anniversary” of the end of the 2008-9 Gaza conflict with a “global day of action” on 18 January calling for justice for the victims of the fighting. The global day is the launch of Amnesty’s two-month campaign ahead of the United Nations Human Rights Council meeting in March, at which the UN is being asked to provide an international justice solution for the victims of the Gaza conflict, Amnesty said. In 22 days of conflict between 27 December 2008 and 18 January 2009, hundreds of Palestinian civilians (including about 300 children) and three Israeli civilians were killed, with many others on both sides injured. The UK government has previously supported moves to ensure that preliminary UN investigations into the conflict are acted on, and Amnesty supporters are now pressing the Foreign Secretary William Hague to ensure that this happens. The organisation is calling on states at the UN’s Human Rights Council to agree a resolution that will refer the issue to the UN in New York – this could in turn trigger a referral to the International Criminal Court at The Hague. To coincide with its day of action Amnesty has released a new “Day In The Life”-style film showing the long-term effects of conflict in the region upon people on both sides of the conflict. In previous statements Amnesty urged Israel to lift the blockade on more than 1.4 million Palestinians cut off from the outside world and struggling with desperate poverty. Amnesty said that the blockade constitutes collective punishment under international law and must be lifted immediately.” As the occupying power, Israel has a duty under international law to ensure the welfare of Gaza s inhabitants, including their rights to health, education, food and adequate housing, Amnesty said.

News Analysis | A New Gaza War? Jan 16, 2011

The escalation in Israel’s air and drone attacks on the Gaza strip over the past months has raised the possibility of another offensive on the besieged area.

According to many in the international media and also political circles, it is just a matter of time before Israel initiates another war on one of the most densely populated areas in the world.

In this episode of News Analysis, the issue will be discussed.

قصفت الزوارق البحرية الإسرائيلية الليلة عدة مناطق على ساحل قطاع غزة بقذائف مدفعية وزخات كثيفة من رشاشاتها الثقيلة، دون التبليغ عن وقوع إصابات أو أضرار.

وقال مراسلنا في خان يونس جنوب القطاع إن الزوارق الإسرائيلية التي تجوب عرض البحر قصفت برشاشاتها الثقيلة شاطئ بحر خان يونس، دون وقوع إصابات.
وأفاد شهود عيان أن زوارق الاحتلال أطلقت قذيفة واحدة على الأقل في منطقة السودانية شمال غرب غزة، مما أثار حالة من الخوف والهلع في صفوف الصيادين الفلسطينيين.
كما استهدفت الزوارق الاسرائيلية بنيران رشاشاتها مراكب الصيادين في عرض البحر قبال ساحل دير البلح وسط القطاع.
وتصعد قوات الاحتلال الإسرائيلي مؤخرًا من اعتداءاتها بحق الصيادين والمزارعين على طول حدود قطاع غزة البرية والبحرية، بشكل شبه يومي.

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – A Palestinian woman died Saturday morning after suffering intense tear-gas inhalation during an anti-wall rally in Bil’in on Friday, medics said.

Palestinian medical sources in Ramallah said 36-year-old Jawahir Abu Rahmah, from Bil’in, died at Ramallah medical compound. Abu Rahmah inhaled large amounts of tear gas fired by Israeli forces who forcibly dispersed a non-violent rally protesting the separation wall.

The local popular committee said doctors fought through the night to save Abu Rahmah’s life. She was diagnosed as suffering from poisoning caused by the active ingredient in the tear-gas, and did not respond to treatment, the committee said in a statement.

“We are shocked and furious for Israel’s brutality, which once again cost the life of a peaceful demonstrator. Israel’s lethal and inhumane response to our struggle will not pass. In the dawn of a new decade, it is time for the world to ask Israel for accountability and to bring about an end to the occupation,” said committee member Mohammed Khatib.

Abu Rahmah’s brother Bassem was killed in April 2009 by a tear gas canister fired at his chest by an Israeli soldier during a village demonstration.

Friday’s rally was attended by Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. Organizers said more than 1,000 demonstrators attended the final protest of the year calling for an end to Israel’s land confiscations.

Israeli forces met the protest with tear-gas canisters, hitting one teenager in the face and sending him to hospital. Military officials said they were unaware of injuries, and that around 250 participated in the protest.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the area was declared a closed military zone in advance of the protest “in an effort to prevent an escalation of the violent and illegal riot” that the village hosts weekly.

Palestinian killed in Israeli gunfire

PRESS TV  | Tue Dec 28, 2010 4:16PM

Israeli forces have killed a Palestinian man in a gunfire attack in east of Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian medics say.

Hassan Abu Rok, 22, was killed in the Israeli gunfire attack on Tuesday, said Hamas spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya.

The incident comes two days after two Palestinians died in Khan Yunis after Israeli soldiers launched a gun battle in the area.

The Israeli military has repeatedly waged attacks on Gaza since its massive 22-day war on the territory at the turn of 2009.

However, during this month, there has been a surge of violence along the Israeli-Gaza border.
