Anti-Muslim Facebook Page Now Removed

The Facebook page set up to call for the deportation of the Muslim protesters who disrupted Remembrance Day ceremonies in London has been removed.

A Facebook spokesman would not confirm whether the social networking site removed the page, called “Let’s show these poppy burning bastards how many people want them deported”, or whether it was deleted by the page administrator. He said he would look into it but added that the site did not generally comment on actions taken against specific accounts or pieces of content.

However, he said:

“We take our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities very seriously and react quickly to reports of inappropriate content and behavior. Specifically, we’re sensitive to content that includes pornography, harassment of private individuals, direct statements of hate against protected groups of people, and actionable threats of violence.
