    This week only, more then 9 of the biggest Facebook groups of atheists and secular Arabs were closed after reports campaigns led by Islamist groups containing hundreds of thousands of members. They are abusing the Facebook report facility to remove all pages that oppose their ideology.

    While Arab atheists, with absolutely no exaggeration, already face all kinds of oppression, torture, restriction of speech and even sentences to death in their countries (we mention Raif Badawi, Mohamed Cheikh, Achraf Fayad as examples ), Arab atheists are facing a huge risk of losing the remaining freedoms that are practiced secretly or online, wich are , including the freedom and the right of thinking and discussing freely, a basic right of a human being, hence being alive!

    Social media is the only space we can freely speak through, But with Facebook's policy that signifies reports by the number of reporters, Facebook is allowing Islamists to create groups with the sole purpose of closing our atheist and secular pages, and unfortunately Facebook facebook have being at their side !

    We, as secular and Arab atheists, are asking Facebook's administration to change its policy, to revise it's Reporting system in order to prevent this from happening again , and to restore all our groups and pages !

    I heard on the news that they have college students and recent graduates working on the report desk at Facebook. They've left 21 and 22 year olds in charge of whether or not to delete these pages and images and stuff. I mess with them all the time. I complained so much once that I got them to delete an inspirational photo of topless old women with mastectomy scars. Then I complained again when someone posted a cartoon penis skateboarding all over some naked cartoon boobs and they left that one up. It's interesting seeing how they react in different situations. I need a life, I need a job.
