It seems Mark could use a history lesson.

Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will 'fight to protect' Muslim rights
By Jacob Kastrenakes on December 9, 2015 06:30 pm

Mark Zuckerberg says that Muslims will always be welcome on Facebook, and that Muslim users should expect for Facebook to "fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you." Zuckerberg's comments come two days after the leading Republican presidential candidate called for a ban on Muslims entering the US. The racist policy proposal, though widely condemned, has emboldened existing prejudices against the Muslim community. "As a Jew, my parents taught me that we must stand up against attacks on all communities," Zuckerberg writes. "Even if an attack isn't against you today, in time attacks on freedom for anyone will hurt everyone."

Though Zuckerberg isn't about to alter national policy with a Facebook post, Facebook's clear support of Muslims will play a big role in setting the tone of online discourse. It's something that Google's Eric Schmidt called for just two days ago, writing in a New York Times op-ed that leaders in both government and technology need to keep the internet safe from hate and harassment. "We need leaders to use the new power of technology to allow us to broaden our horizons as individuals, and in the process broaden the horizons of our society," he wrote. Zuckerberg's pledge to keep Facebook a safe place for Muslims is very much a step in that direction.

I want to add my voice in support of Muslims in our community and around the world.

After the Paris attacks and hate this week, I can only imagine the fear Muslims feel that they will be persecuted for the actions of others.

As a Jew, my parents taught me that we must stand up against attacks on all communities. Even if an attack isn't against you today, in time attacks on freedom for anyone will hurt everyone.

If you're a Muslim in this community, as the leader of Facebook I want you to know that you are always welcome here and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you.

Having a child has given us so much hope, but the hate of some can make it easy to succumb to cynicism. We must not lose hope. As long as we stand together and see the good in each other, we can build a better world for all people.

Basically the idiot just came out on the side of terrorism since ISIS and others use Facebook to organize. Once again proving liberals are brain dead.

Interestingly, I got an email today from the Liberty Movement who in response to the idiot launched a new social media called Grassfire at http://grassfire.com

Haven't joined yet but looks promising.
