Facebook did not release a statement on last week's removal. But in a statement released to several media outlets in the days before the page's removal, Facebook commented on the Third Palestinian Intifada page controversy.
"While some kinds of comments and content may be upsetting for someone -- criticism of a certain culture, country, religion, lifestyle, or political ideology, for example -- that alone is not a reason to remove the discussion," the statement said. "We strongly believe that Facebook users have the ability to express their opinions, and we don’t typically take down content, groups or pages that speak out against countries, religions, political entities, or ideas.”
