Facebook has been portraying such bloodshed and is used to it, says Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rightist government is devising charter to empower it. So it can order social media sites to take off postings considered impending.

Ramping up the stress, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan on Saturday blamed Facebook of “undermining” Israeli police attempts by not cooperating with inquiries about potential suspects.

Facebook did not answer directly to Erdan’s criticism, but revealed in a statement that it negotiated closely with Israel.

“We work regularly with safety organizations and policymakers around the world, including Israel. To ensure that people know how to make safe use of Facebook. There is no room for content that promotes violence, direct threats, terrorist or hate speeches on our platform.”

The statement said.

“Facebook has a set of community standards designed to help people understand what’s allowed on it. We call on people to use our report, if users find content they believe violates these rules. So that Facebook can examine each case and take quick action.”

Facebook revealed in a statement.

Israel brought a total of 74 “especially provoking and radical posts” to Facebook’s heed, out of which 24 were removed.

“The big problem is in Judea and Samaria. Facebook does not recognize Israeli control there and is not prepared to turn over information.”

Erdan said.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked also called on social media companies to control preemptively material.

“We want the companies not to approve and to themselves remove posts by terrorist groups and incitement to terrorism without us having to flag each individual post. In just the same manner, for example, that they today do not allow posts and pages with child pornography.”

She told Israel’s Army Radio.
