Rampant Anti-Semitism on “March to Jerusalem” Facebook Page

Update – Feb­ru­ary 14, 2012: Gilad Atz­mon, an anti-Semitic author, writer and musi­cian, is sched­uled to speak in Oak­land, Cal­i­for­nia, on Feb­ru­ary 25, at a “ben­e­fit for the Global March to Jerusalem – North America.”
The Face­book page of the “Global March to Jerusalem” cam­paign, which is coor­di­nat­ing efforts by activists to cross Israel’s bor­ders and enter Jerusalem to “demand [its] free­dom,” is rife with anti-Semitic and other extreme content.
The des­ig­nated date for the “Global March to Jerusalem” (GMJ) is March 30, 2012, or “Land Day,” which com­mem­o­rates six Israeli Arabs who were killed while protest­ing against Israeli sol­diers in 1976.
The Face­book page fea­tures what it describes as “world­wide Jew­ish lobby news,” which links to an anti-Semitic Web site that fea­tures Holo­caust denial. One of the news items reposted to the Face­book page calls Tel Aviv’s sta­tus as a gay-friendly des­ti­na­tion con­sis­tent with “his­tor­i­cal Jew­ish efforts to spread cor­rup­tion and per­ver­sion among all human societies.”
In early Jan­u­ary, a poll was posted on the GMJ Face­book page with the ques­tion, “Are what the Zion­ists doing to Pales­tine and its peo­ple with expul­sion and killing sim­i­lar to Hitler’s Holo­caust?” The poll choices were, “Yes,” “No,” or “Even Worse.” 
Among the extreme com­ments found on the page is one that reads: “We will not go to Jerusalem as if we are going to Paris or as if we are going for tourism…This is our land. This is our coun­try and we shall return to it through blood and mar­tyrs. We will lib­er­ate it from the Jew­ish impu­rity by God’s will…By God we shall not enter it other than con­querors, this is God’s promise and God shall not for­sake his promise.”
The admin­is­tra­tor of the page posted a pic­ture of the Ka’aba [the holi­est shrine for Mus­lims] in Mecca with the mes­sage, “The alarm bells are ring­ing for over 65 years…the Zion­ist entity is demand­ing Jew­ish prop­erty in Saudi Ara­bia dat­ing to the prophet’s time.”
