With Facebook, YouTube and other social media sites are showing a propensity to censor criticism of Islamic extremism or images of Muhammed it is sickening to see that a new media frenzy is occurring to which those same social media sites are much slower to react to.
"How to Stab A Jew" complete with an instructional guide and video.
ADL has highlighted a number of Arabic language posts over the last week, including a video featuring two masked men demonstrating several stabbing techniques which was made available on several YouTube channels. It was originally posted on October 5, 2015 and the ADL article was written on October 15th, so it was allowed not only on YouTube for ten days, but has also been allowed to circulate on Facebook and Twitter.
Double standard much?
Attack Jews or Christians, and those running the social sites are very slow to act, yet even the mildest form of criticism against Islamic Extremism is immediately addressed and even removed, and considered an incitement to violence or hatred? Below we show that actual incitement to violence is running rampant.
Multiple Twitter messages have been left which described exactly what type of kife is considered correct to use in the stabbing attacks in Israel. One offered a graphic of a knife with the message "Circulate: Regarding the Youth in the occupied lands, they must use serrated knives in stabbing so the air can enter the body of the target, which leads to immediate death, and the destruction of organs when the knife is pulled."
Image below of the tweet as proof of its existence:
Other Twitter users using an Arabic hashtag “Slaughtering the Jews” posted a message that reads: “Don’t hesitate in using this quality (vegetable knife) as it’s the strongest in causing pain #SlaughteringtheJews.”
Several Twitter users recommend attaching a camera to the knife to record the stabbing in HD. For example, the tweet below from October 5 includes an image of a GoPro camera attached to a knife and hashtags that translate to “West Bank is uprising” “Stab a soldier with a knife to liberate Palestine” and “Intifada started.”
FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM
Facebook also allowed an Arabic hastag of "stab" where an image of a circulatory system with suggestions of areas to stab and Instagram allowed the instructional guide of "When you stab, put poison on the knife or soak the knife in vinegar. Stab with a screw driver and insert it in the neck….stabber stabber stab correctly," with another image.
So it is find and dandy to allow instructional guides on how to stab a Jew on Facebook but not to allow a picture of Muhammed?

According to a Breitbart report dated December 29, 2014, nearly a year ago, the "how to stab a Jew" video had been "widely circulated in Palestinian social media networks," in order to teach "jihadists how to stab a Jewish person in a manner that ensures their speedy death."
The image at the top of this article is of Danny Danon, Israel's new ambassador to the United Nations, holding up the image of the circulartory system with the words "how to stab a Jew" and asserted to the UN that "The picture is being taught in middle schools, in high schools, in elementary schools," as he ureged the Security Council to make a statement against what he described as "the incitement that fuels terror."
