Facebook Weighing Ban on Anything Related to Israel-Palestine Conflict

Citing server problems and widespread user ignorance, Facebook Tsar Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly contemplating a ‘total ban’ on anything related to the polarizing Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.
“Look, I’m a billionaire genius and I didn’t build this social media platform for Israelis and Palestinians to hate-post as if they’re all suffering from OCD, and certainly not for a bunch of white people outside the region who know fuck all about the conflict,” Zuckerberg reportedly said. “All of these Facebook Pages, Facebook Groups, and individual comments on timelines are fucking up our servers… except for The Mideast Beast. We’re all kind of fine with those idiots.”
Such a ban would mark a significant escalation in the social media behemoth’s efforts to censor user activity. As The Mideast Beast’s long-time reporter and full-time onanist Marcus Thunderbolt reported, Facebook has also previously mulled introducing a ‘minimum postgraduate education requirement for commenting’ on Israel and Hamas’ repeated military confrontations, as well as the Arab-Israeli Conflict in general.

However, despite Zuckerberg’s enthusiasm, the proposed ban on ‘anything related to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict’ is unlikely to be enforced. “We’re struggling with a concept widely known as ‘Freedom of Speech,’” said a Facebook legal expert. “I won’t lie, sometimes I wish it was known as a ‘privilege’ rather than a ‘freedom’ or a ‘right’ – kind of like having a driver’s license or health insurance in the U.S.”
Zuckerberg, who is Jewish, insisted that his heritage had nothing to do with the proposed ban. “Are you kidding me? I love Arabs. They gave us the number zero, and I could never have built Facebook and become a billionaire without it.”

The Mideast Beast (TMB) is a political satire and comedy news site that produces spoof articles about or connected to the Middle East, only for comedic and entertainment purposes. We are your Middle Eastern equal opportunity offenders. We poke at anyone and anything that we can get our mucky little paws on. Whatever you read on TMB is totally fictitious and you should not take us seriously in any way, shape, or form. Clear? Are you sure? Good. Moving on… Our goal: We always want to make you laugh but we also want you to think about the issues we write about. After all, satire and comedy are elements of education. We also aim to shine a little light into this insane region. We believe that laughter, thought, and hopefully understanding, are legitimate tools in helping to reduce extremism. Our audience: Anyone interested in the Middle East, which pretty much means everyone these days. P.S.: Because TMB can be naughty at times, articles in The Mideast Beast are not intended for persons under the age of 17. Sorry kiddies.
