UPDATE: Khaled Abu Toameh reports that his Facebook account has been reactivated, but that his posts about PA corruption have been deleted. (Jan. 15, 2013, 12:45 p.m.)
Jerusalem Post journalist Khaled Abu Toameh has informed us that Facebook has closed his account, apparently in response to complaints concerning articles he posted, including "The Palestinian Authority's Inconvenient Truths," as well as Jordanian article criticizing corruption in that country.
Abu Toameh, who has spoken at CAMERA events, reports; "In the past few days I have been bombarded with dozens of hate and threat messages because of the these postings and articles. Some anti-Israel folks in the UK are now publishing my photo with a Star of David on my forehead."
What are Facebook's criteria for closing an account? As he notes, Hamas and members of other terrorist groups continue to operate accounts. Abu Toameh has not yet received an answer from Facebook. Contact Facebook for clarification: why was Khaled Abu Toameh's account closed?
