AJC, Lapid hail Facebook ban on Holocaust denial

The American Jewish Committee hails Facebook’s decision to bar posts denying or distorting the Holocaust.

“Today’s welcome announcement, noting AJC’s role, constitutes a significant victory in the battle against Holocaust denial, which, make no mistake about it, is nothing other than unvarnished anti-Semitism,” AJC head David Harris is quoted saying in a statement.

Israeli Opposition Leader Yair Lapid also welcomes the move.

“Holocaust denial is an expression of the lowest strain of anti-Semitism that needs to pass from the world and the internet,” he tweets.
