After a young Muslim girl published on YouTube a video by a Facebook group called “no all’ Islam in Italia” (No Islam in Italy), and her warnings of the video’s clear incitements to racial hatred against Muslims, the group has been banned from Facebook. The article’s author accuses Facebook authorities of their treatment of Muslims with kid’s gloves and favoring them over other categories. He denounces the fact that it has become virtually impossible to criticize Islam or to participate in a public debate on it. He thinks this “two weights two measures” approach is unfair since there are a lot of fundamentalist groups who preach against the West and Christianity on the Internet without being subject to equivalent control. The group however will continue its mission that, according to the members, seeks to create local platforms for discussion without falling into political propaganda.
