This is the result of the tacit sanction of islamic anti-semitism and leftist Jew hatred. July 9th has been declared "kill a jew day" on Facebook. This is a tragedy, a sad day. The spread of this poison is made possible by the vacuum created by the continued abdication of America's principles and values across the world. I believe that.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Thanks to Obama Timeline in the comment section:
In May, the State Department commented on Facebook’s “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”—which was organized in response to the censoring of a Comedy Central episode of the cartoon series South Park to avoid offending Muslims. Spokesman P. J. Crowley read a prepared statement, “Obviously, this is a difficult and challenging issue. Many of the images that appear today on Facebook were deeply offensive to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. We are deeply concerned about any deliberate attempt to offend Muslims or members of any other religious groups. We do not condone offensive speech that can incite violence or hatred. …The best antidote to intolerance is not banning or punishing offensive speech, but rather a combination of robust legal protections against discrimination and hate crimes, and proactive government outreach to minority religious groups and the vigorous defense of both freedom of religion and expression.” It remains to be seen whether the Obama administration is outraged by “kill a Jew day.”
UPDATE: It took them long enough, but Facebook took the page down.
