The Anti-Terrorism Coalition (ATC) and two other organizations operating on Facebook have been targeted by Facebook. Members of the ATC, the Facebook-based American Infidel (AI) and the Facebook-based Infidel Forces (IF) have been banned from the popular networking website.
The hardest hit of the groups was IF, which has seen its entire leadership and other key members banned. IF was involved in taking over hostile (Islamic terrorist, pro-terrorist, anti-Semitic, racist, radical leftist and other collectivist) groups. According to IF leader Jack Johnson, his group was in control of at least 150 hostile groups and 15 – 20 friendly (anti-terrorist, patriotic, rightist and other freedom-loving) groups (including some groups that had been "liberated" from enemy "occupation"). The attacks came as IF was in the middle of reinforcing their groups with additional administrators, in order to be ready for exactly such a scenario as this (on Facebook, if all of a group's administrators are banned, any group member can make him or herself an administrator). After the banning of Mike Jenkins – IF's second in command –, yesterday afternoon, it is believed that at least 95% of IF's groups are no longer under IF control and thus have the potential to easily fall into enemy hands.
Several members of American Infidel were also banned, including two administrators of the American Infidel group itself. It is unclear if these individuals were in control of any other friendly groups.
In addition, several undercover operatives of both AI and IF have been banned by Facebook, as well. They had been involved in infiltrating primarily terrorist and pro-terrorist groups operating on Facebook.
The attacks also directly impacted the ATC. On Sunday, July 5, around 15:30 EST, Jack Turner, the head ATC representative on Facebook, received messages from members of AI and IF, asking for urgent assistance, primarily in securing the groups they had controlled. Mr. Turner immediately moved to join as many of the groups as he could find and make himself an administrator of them. However, within about 10 minutes, he too found his account deactivated by Facebook. Later the same day, another ATC member also had problems with his account, but it appears that he is still unbanned. The state of the ATC fan page on Facebook is still unknown.
This is not the first time that Facebook has targeted rightists, anti-terrorists and other freedom-loving groups and individuals, while doing absolutely nothing about Islamic terrorist, pro-terrorist, anti-Semitic, racist, fascist, Nazi, communist and other hostile groups.
The Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) – another friendly group that has been involved in combating these hostile groups – has also been targeted by Facebook and Islamic hackers multiple times. Facebook has generally taken no action against Islamic hackers and other hostile groups (doing so only when faced with massive pressure from groups such as the JIDF); while banning JIDF leader David Appletree every few weeks for absolutely no reason. Only through massive emailing campaigns by anti-terrorist Facebook members does Mr. Appletree's account get reactivated.
In another instance, Facebook did absolutely nothing while Islamic hackers took over a massive pro-Israel group. Interestingly, it rarely hesitates to stop anti-terrorist operations on its site.
