The evilness of Facebook

You would think an organisation founded and run by someone called Zuckerberg would be more vigilant, but no, Facebook stands accused of vile anti-Semitism.

Facebook is at the centre of an anti-Semitism row after it emerged that its automatic translation software was spewing out vile, anti-Jewish diatribes.

One post written in German, which criticised neo-Nazis, was wrongly translated to produce a rant about ?dull hollow, dirty Jews? who were ?a disgrace to our country?.

Another post in Hebrew, written by Israel’s Education Minister Naftali Bennett, was twisted by the software to suggest a Holocaust victim was killed by ‘the master race’.

When MailOnline brought the error to Facebook’s attention it apologised and claimed to have solved the problem, but declined to say what had gone wrong.

What went wrong is they have some evil jew hating programmers working for them.

The disturbing glitch, which warps the meaning of posts by replacing the word ‘Nazi’ with an offensive or random term, was found to occur in German and Hebrew, and may affect other languages.

It was first spotted by?blogger Ingrid Stone who told MailOnline: ‘As a British Jew, I was absolutely horrified when I discovered the way that Facebook had translated the word “Nazi”.

‘At first, I thought there must be some sort of mistake and then I wondered if the Facebook translate feature had been hacked.’

The glitch comes after Facebook was repeatedly accused of turning a blind eye to anti-Semitic material on its platform while removing harmless content on Jewish themes.

Facebook?s policy explicitly forbids ?organisations and people dedicated to promoting hatred.?

But in August, Facebook ruled that an image of a white man choking a Jew, accompanied by a diatribe that said, ?I will not rest until every single filthy, parasitic [Jew] is rounded up and slaughtered like the vermin that they are,? was acceptable.

The following month, the social media giant ruled that a picture of a shovel filled with human ashes, accompanied by the slogan ?how to pick up Jewish chicks?, also did not breach its official policy.

By contrast, Facebook has removed harmless Jewish material such as the ?Humans of Jerusalem? page, which shared street photography of people in the city.

Jewish community groups have expressed concern that the social media giant is not taking anti-Semitic hatred seriously enough.

Like Twitter, Facebook doesn’t follow its own rules. Jewish sites are regularly shut down while hate sites promoting Islam and terrorism are allowed to remain.

Facebook has become evil.
