The Facebook Dilemma | Inside America with Ghida Fakhry



In an unusual move, Facebook and Twitter censored a New York Post story about alleged emails from the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son that suggested he gave a Ukrainian executive the opportunity to meet with Biden.

The alleged emails were said to be obtained by Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney and his former top advisor, Steve Bannon. The Biden campaign said no such meeting took place. Facebook decided to limited access to the story in order to have it fact-checked by a third party and Twitter marked the story as “potentially unsafe”, temporarily locking the accounts of the Trump campaign and the White House press secretary in what the company said was a violation of its rules on publishing hacked materials.

The move triggered an immediate backlash from Republicans and Conservatives, who accuse the social media giants of engaging in censorship and election interference. While Republicans on Capitol Hill accuse Facebook and Twitter of political bias, Democrats criticize them for not being aggressive enough in cracking down on harmful posts, including election misinformation.

The companies whose CEOs will testify before Congress at the end of October rejected accusations of bias, saying they do not enforce their policies on the basis of political ideology.

  1. Islam The Beautiful Religion

    ( Be Just )

    Quran 5:8
    '' O you who believe! stand out firmly for God, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the > HATRED OF OTHERS TO YOU < make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety: and fear God. For God is well-acquainted with all that ye do. ''

    Quran 4:58
    '' Indeed, God commands you to render trusts to whom they are due and when you judge between people to judge with justice. Excellent is that which God instructs you. Indeed, God is ever Hearing and Seeing.''

    ( God's The Rules Of War )

    Quran 2:190
    '' Fight in the way of God > THOSE WHO FIGHT YOU < but do not transgress. Indeed. God does not like transgressors. ''

    Quran 2 :193

    '' And fight them on until there is no more oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression. ''

    Quran 4:90
    ''………So if they withdraw from you and cease their hostility and offer you peace, in that case Allah has not granted you permission to fight against them.''

    Quran 8:61
    ''And if they seek peace, then you also seek it, and put your trust in God. He is the Hearer, the Knowledgeable.''

    ( Stand Up For Justice )

    Quran 4 :135
    '' Ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to God, even as against > YOURSELVES, < or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for God can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily God is well-acquainted with all that ye do.''

    ( Who Are The Good Human Beings? )

    Quran 2.177
    '' Righteousness is "NOT" that you turn your faces ( In Worship ) toward the east or the west but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in God, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth,> IN SPITE OF LOVE FOR IT,< to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for > freeing slaves < [and who] establishes prayer and gives charity; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous. ''

    ( Freedom To Believe And To Reject )

    Quran 2:256
    '' Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error ''

    Quran 10:99
    '' And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely. Then would you compel the people in order that they become believers? ''

    ( Tolerance For Other Religions )

    Quran 109: 1- 6

    Say,"O disbelievers,

    I do not worship what you worship.

    Nor are you worshipers of what I worship.

    Nor will I be a worshiper of what you worship.

    Nor will you be worshipers of what I worship.

    For you is your religion, and for me is my religion."

    ( Protection for Idol Worshiper )

    Quran 9:6
    "And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah. Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are people who do not know. "

    Quran16:125
    “Call people to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good teaching, and argue with them in the most courteous way”

    Quran7:199 “Be tolerant….”

    ( Friendship With Non Muslims )

    Quran 60:8
    '' God does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, God loves those who act justly. ''

    ( Do Christians And Jews and "OTHER" non-Muslims go to Heaven? )

    Quran 2:62
    '' Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,-> ANY <- who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. '' —> { On Judgement Day }

    ( According to the Quran Christians and Jews worship TRUE God )

    (Quran 3:113-114)
    '' Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book ( Christians and Jews ) are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of God all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration. They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous.''

    Note: According to the Quran that Jesus is not God nevertheless Christians still worship one '' TRUE '' God.

    ( > Allah < Is The Protector Of Monasteries, Churches, Synagogues And The Mosques )

    Quran 22:40
    [They are] those who have been evicted from their homes without right – only because they say, "Our Lord is God ." And were it not that God checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of God is much mentioned. And God will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, God is Powerful and Exalted in Might.

    ( Why Are There So Many Different Religions In The World ? )

    Quran 5 48
    ''…… If God wanted He could have made all of you a > single nation < But He willed otherwise in order to test you in what He has given you;(scriptures) therefore try to excel one another in good deeds. Ultimately you all shall return to God; then He will show you the truth of those matters in which you > DISPUTE <.''

    NOTE:
    Quran 3:85
    ''If anyone desires a religion other than Islam ( > submission < to God), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (Salvation)''

    My explanation of above verse

    Islam mean > submission < to God

    ( The above verse saying is that God will not accept a religion from the > MUSLIM < and the Non-Muslims but total > submission < to God.)

    Question: How Can Muslim And the Non-Muslim > submit < to the God?

    Answer: Be kind to other human beings and Do not lie, Do not steal, Do not cheat, Do not hurt others, Do not be prideful and Do the charity work.

    ( God Allow Muslims To Marry And Eat Food From the Christian And Jew And Vice Versa )

    Quran 5;5
    ''This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture ( Christian and Jew) is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture ( Christian and Jew) before you, when you have given them their due compensation, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse or taking [secret] lovers. And whoever denies the faith – his work has become worthless, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.''

    ( Kindness Toward Atheists / > APOSTATE < )

    Quran 60:8
    '' As for such [ of the unbelievers ( atheist) ] as do not fight against you on account of [your] faith, and neither drive you forth from your homelands, > Allah < does not forbid you to show them > kindness < and to behave towards them with full equity: for, verily, Allah loves those who act equitably. ''

    ( All The Terrorists / Killers Will Enter Hell Fire )

    Quran 5:32
    "……Whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely……"

    ( Turned Your Enemies Into Your Best Friends )

    Quran 41:34
    "The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better, then lo! he, between whom and thee there was enmity (will become) as though he was a bosom friend."

    ( The Husband and The Wife Are > Protecting Friends < One Of Another )

    Quran 9:71
    ''And the believers, men and women, are > Protecting Friends < one of another; they enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and they establish worship and they pay the poor-due, and they obey God and His messenger. As for these, God will have mercy on them. Lo! God is Mighty, Wise.''

    Quran16:97
    “To whoever, male or female, does good deeds and has faith, We shall give a good life and reward them according to the best of their actions.

    Quran 30:21
    “And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquility in them; and He placed between you > affection and mercy <…”–> { Love }

    The Prophet Muhammad said, “Heaven lies under the feet of your mother.”

    ( Human Are One family )

    Quran 49:13
    " O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)."

    ( All The Racist People Will Enter Hellfire )

    Quran 30:22
    "And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge."

    My comment:

    The > BASIC < message of God to the human is that '' YOU '' believe in God and be kind to other human beings / > animals < and in the > RETURNED < God will > REWARD < you with a new life in Paradise.

    * The Quran ONLY guides you how to become a good human being "Nothing Else".

    * You are a good human being or a bad human being that is YOUR choice.

    * No one can force you to become a good human being.

    * You MUST work HARD to become a good human being.

    * Why should ''YOU'' do good deeds and avoid bad deeds?

    * Do Good – it's for You. Do Bad – It's against you.

    * '' YOUR'' life is a TEST from God that you will choose to do either Good or Bad.

    * Find the excuse to help others and forgive others NOT the other way around.

    * '' YOUR '' final destination is either Hell or Heaven.

    * So work HARD toward choice of YOUR destination.

    Quran 17:7
    '' If you do good, you will do so for your own good. And if you do evil, it will be to your own loss.''

  2. Unbridled capitalism without any regulatory checks inevitably lead to oligopolies and monopolies. This reality has been witnessed from as far back as the 1950s and beyond. No enterprise should be allowed to get so huge that it is then deemed " too big to fail".Senator Elizabeth Warren has an effective plan to deal with these mega cooperations like Facebook, Google, Twitter, Apple and others basically using the antitrust legislation that has bee so gutted. These mega firms urgently need to be split in different smaller entities that then can feasibly regulated. Arguing mostly using the right wings numerous talking points does not advance this vital cause. The progressive left movements rational should also be sensibly articulated if there is to be a semblance of equity in the coverage of this sensitive subject.
