Social media heeding most Israeli calls to delete ‘incitement’: minister

By Steven Scheer JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Facebook, Google and YouTube are complying with up to 95 percent of Israeli requests to delete content that the government says incites Palestinian violence, Israel's Justice Minister said on Monday. "Our main aim is for those companies to do their own monitoring of material containing incitement," Ayelet Shaked said after a meeting with Facebook officials. "Just as ISIS (Islamic State) video clips are being monitored and removed from the network, we want them to take the same action against Palestinian material that incites terrorism," she told the International Conference on Counter-terrorism near Tel Aviv.
