Israel's Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan slams Facebook for not doing enough to prevent incitement and sabotaging the work of the police .
Facebook has responded to an Israeli minister's scathing criticism that the social media network is not doing enough to remove abusive content from its site that could incite Palestinian violence against the country.
Israel's Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan slammed the social media giant on Saturday 2 July , saying it has become a "monster" due to "the dialogue, the incitement, the lies of the young Palestinian generation that are happening on the Facebook platform".
Erdan said Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has blood on his hands after a 13-year-old girl was recently stabbed to death in her bed in the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Ara.
The killer, identified as 17-year-old Muhammad Nasser Tarayrah, previously announced his intentions in a series of posts on Facebook before the murder, saying he wanted to have a "martyr's death".
"Facebook today, which brought an amazing, positive revolution to the world, sadly, we see this since the rise of Daesh and the wave of terror, it has simply become a monster," Erdan told Israeli television station Channel 2 in Hebrew, Reuters reports.
