Outrage grows as non-political Humans of Jerusalem removed by Facebook

Popular page was scrupulous about copyright and was removed without warning. Coordinated anti-Israel attack suspected

The popular Humans of Jerusalem Facebook page, owned by photographer Simcha Jessel was removed without warning by Facebook Thursday.

Jessel, who is active on behalf of photographers intellectual property rights on social media, was baffled as to what caused the removal. He wrote the following on his personal Facebook page:

“I am the latest in a series of attacks against pro-Israel pages. Earlier this week, I was mysteriously locked out of my personal profile, and tonight, I received notification that my page, Humans of Jerusalem, has been unpublished for an unspecified violation of Facebook’s terms.”

Jessel is attempting to appeal the decision, but from past experience, is appealing on the general public to apply pressure as well. “The only way to get Facebook to take notice is to make noise,” he wrote. “Guys, please reach out to any connections you have, share this on your profiles, post about it on your pages, let’s get my project back on the air, because this isn’t my own personal page. We’re all Humans of Jerusalem.”
