A template letter posted into numerous Facebook pages is warning Mark Zuckerberg and his team that 2.5 million Muslims will leave the social networking site if certain demands are not met.

The anger of these 2.5 million users appears, from the letter, to revolve around the free display of anti-Islamic symbols and pages and the removal of four Facebook pages that were highly popular amongst the site’s Muslim users.

The letter wants those pages re-instated and wants new rules that make it an offense to post anti-Islamic comments on the site, otherwise 2.5 million people will move to an Islamic alternative to Facebook.

“Although you have attended the world’s best communication skills courses you have been most successful in growing great hatred and hostility between you and Muslims around the world,” reads part of the letter.

It goes on to decry the company’s acceptance of an ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’ page, which is controversial because it allows users to draw the Prophet Mohammed, a highly revered figure in Islam whom some believe it is an offense to portray in any visual medium.

The letter asks Facebook to respect their beliefs and feelings and reinstate their pages, but Facebook said in a statement that the ‘I love Mohammed’ and ‘Quran Lovers’ pages were disabled because they were spamming users.

“The pages in question were taken down because they violated our policies about spamming users. These pages were not removed because of content violations,” said a spokesperson, though her comments referred to why the pages were disabled, not why they couldn’t be reinstated.

Don't give in Facebook!  

You know, I just don't get it all the outrage.
Americans are the most hated people on the planet right now and you don't see us cry and whine like little girls every time someone says something derogatory about us.
Grow up!  Just ignore it like every other sane person does - or good riddance to facebook.  We will not let you take our freedom of speech away.

I do not agree with JFenix on this, but she didn't insult anybody personally, unlike you.

apart from this....

when Facebook is a CIA tool anyway, why do Muslims want to have their account there? Why just not signing up?
