The Removal of Terror-Inciting Content from Social Media bill, also known as the "Facebook bill," passed a Ministerial Committee for Legislation vote on Sunday 25 December and would apply to content that "call for an act of violence or terrorism," The Jerusalem Post reported.
"We have zero tolerance for terrorists, praise for their acts and incitement to real-world violence.
We work aggressively to remove it from our platform as soon as we become aware of it."
The representative also noted that it hopes to continue a "constructive dialogue" with Israeli authorities, which includes "careful consideration of the implications of this bill for Israeli democracy, freedom of speech, the open Internet and the dynamism of the Israeli Internet sector."
"I'm happy to see the Internet companies are cooperation, but it's important that this cooperation be required, and not according to their whims," Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said.
