Palestinian posts make Facebook a 'monster,' Israeli minister says
Social media giant accused of not doing enough to remove posts that Israel says incite violence
What is the purpose of this Netanyahu video? What more does the world need to know about this terrible event? Why is he showing us her gruesome bloodstained room? Why are we hearing about her teddy bear?
Is Israel under siege by child killers– so this is a call for Interpol or FBI help? No that's not whats happening here.
Netanyahu is "interpreting" one isolated event for the world, talking about one Palestinian killing one girl, and deriving a political lesson. Let's see what he has to say.
This morning a terrorist sneaked into the bedroom of a 13-year-old girl, Hallel-Yaffa Ariel.He murdered young Hallel in cold blood. A picture of her blood stained room is almost too hard to see. There's a teddy bear still on her bed, a red beanbag chair, some pictures on the wall, shoes tightly packed in a bin next to her bunk bed.
