Facebook has submitted to the Turkish government censorship of critics of the Islamic governments treatment of Kurdistan and the PKK.
A former employee of the company oDesk has leaded Facebook’s secret rulebook of detailed instructions, which include blocking any content related to Kurdistan and the PKK.
The former employee of oDesk used to filter out offensive content on Facebook.
The British Daily Mail reports that aggrieved Moroccan worker Amine Derkaou leaked the information to the U.S. gossip website Gawker.
The rulebook bans all attacks on the founder of Turkey, Kemal Atatürk, along with maps of Kurdistan and the burning of Turkish flags.
Furthermore, indications of supporting PKK, or PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan, will result in IP or Facebook account blocks, unless they are clearly against the PKK or Öcalan.
A team of about 50 people from all over the third world — Mexico, Turkey, India and the Philippines — work to moderate Facebook content.
Kurds on Twitter were outraged by the leaked rulebook, and suggested that Turks employed by the company were behind the censoring.
“[I] got banned too for 3 days last week after posting a picture of Ocalan … FB’s terms are BS and too broad,” wrote Kurdish-American student Mohammed Hesen on Twitter.
Big companies like Apple, Google and Facebook will not stand up for Human Rights, if this will limit their profit.
When Facebook submit to Islamic rules of Turkey, the social media can be used as a propaganda tool for totalitarian and suppressive regimes.
Freedom of expression is not longer a human rights, not a value that can be found in the Western civilization. The Capitalists will work with bot Islamists and communist China, as long as these societies will give them higher return on invested capital than in Europe and America. All ….isms will fail man who wants to live by the truth. Also Capitalism.
In the end, all men of faith will obeyJesus, and worship Him alone in spirit and in truth.
