Saw it on the news over the internet that Facebook is being sued for a published page about "Third Infitada" that has over 500,000 fans. The Facebook page started as a call for peace to Israel and Palestine and then violent post started coming in making it the reason for Mr. Larry Klayman, an American Citizen with Jewish origin and founder of Freedom Watch to file a law suit against Facebook.
"Third Infitada" or "Third Palestinian Infitada" refers to in English as uprising or rebellion. It already happened twice in Israel and the call for a Third Infitada is a very sensitive political issue.
Infitada is a little like EDSA here in the Philippines where people do different things and sometimes violent ones to achieve something, say for Freedom or Peace. As what my then professor during my college days always say "In order to have Peace there should be War". But I do hope that violence is the thing of the past, and thanks to technology and information we have been able to stop these things from happening.
Facebook should not be sued just because its on the Facebook website, and besides everything you see and discover on Facebook are results of contributed individual opinions. Was it not what we wanted? The FREEDOM of Free Speech?
I cannot imagine Facebook closing down just because it was not used for a good reason. We could not change what people like or dislike. And SOME PEOPLE and maybe MOST PEOPLE nowadays take Facebook so seriously. But lets not forget that Facebook is only a tool to connect with people in our lives.
