Shurat HaDin (the Israel Law Center) has launched a social media campaign to gain support for a $1 billion lawsuit against the king of social media, Facebook.
The Tel Aviv-based nonprofit organization specializes in fighting terrorists in court. Its successes have included a $655 million jury award in New York in 2015 against the Palestinian Authority for supporting terrorism during the second intifada.
“Facebook and other social media platforms have become a crucial component for international terror, the same as guns, bombs and money,” said Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, founder of Shurat HaDin, who spoke to the Jewish Women’s Connection of Atlanta in March. “For years now, Facebook has continued to provide a platform for terrorist incitement despite repeated warnings. This has become one of today’s top global threats. Social media platforms want to believe terror has nothing to do with them and that they have unlimited immunity and can do whatever they want. We are going to put an end to it.”
