The eldest son of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was banned from Facebook for 24 hours after he posted anti-Muslim and anti-Palestinian comments on his page, The Guardian reports. On Sunday, 27-year-old Yair Netanyahu reportedly posted a tweet claiming he was banned by the “thought police of the radical progressives at Facebook.” The tweet included a screenshot of one of the removed posts, in which he reportedly said he wanted “all Muslims to leave Israel.” Yair also reportedly wrote that he wanted revenge against “those monsters” after a Palestinian shot two Israeli soldiers. “Yair Netanyahu posted several posts which included hate speech—this clearly violates our community standards. Due to that, this content was removed from our platform, as we would do for anyone posting similar content about any protected characteristic,” a Facebook spokesperson told the newspaper. “Following this, Yair Netanyahu decided to share a screen shot of a removed post and called people to share it—which is the same as writing the hate speech all over again.” Yair was previously under fire for sharing an “anti-Semitic” post featuring billionaire George Soros.
