UPDATE: A Facebook representative told Breitbart News that “a block was incorrectly put on [Ms. Geller’s] account on April 25 after a post was mistakenly identified to violate our Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy because it included ‘God Bless Hitler’ and we don’t allow praise for hate figures. We removed the block the next day as soon as we identified that Ms. Geller was raising awareness about this content, which we do allow.”
Original Story starts here:
Days after Facebook, along with Google and Twitter, refused to attend a congressional hearing on social media censorship, the social network banned the account of author and free speech activist Pamela Geller for 30 days after she posted an article about Muslim anti-Semitism in Germany.
Geller’s article said that “thanks to the hijrah” [Jihad by immigration] “Islamic antisemitism will drive the Jews out of Europe, succeeding in achieving Hitler’s dream — a judenrein Europe.”
10. Landlord Mamun Rashid Jailed for Raping Series of Female Tenants in London
Mamun Rashid has been imprisoned after targeting young women as tenants on SpareRoom.com and carrying out “appalling” attacks when they refused to have sex.
Wood Green Crown Court heard that the 30-year-old used the house-share website to purposefully advertise his spare room to females aged between 18 and 45.
The victims contacted Rashid about renting a room in his Tower Hamlets property, and after they moved in he said they could live there rent-free in exchange for sex.
Upon rejecting the landlord’s advances, the women were subjected to serious sexual assaults, reported the Metro.
Rashid was arrested in May last year after he raped a 19-year-old on the evening of the day she moved in, threatening to murder her if she tried to escape or reported the attack to authorities.
