Remove Twitter Account of Geert Wilders (@geertwilderspvv) & Ban him making other accounts

This man Geert Wilders is posting blasphemous content for our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ  and hate speech towards Islam and Muslims on his Twitter account, which is not accepted in any circumstances by Muslims. Hate speech towards any community is not freedom of speech, its violence. Blasphemous content towards any religion is not accepted in any religion. No one can make fun of any religion. Feelings of whole Muslim community worldwide are hurt.  Targeting Islam is unacceptable. The Dutch penal code prohibits both insulting a group (article 137c) and inciting hatred, discrimination or violence (article 137d). The definition of the offences as outlined in the penal code is as follows: Article 137c: "He who publicly, orally, in writing or graphically, intentionally expresses himself insultingly regarding a group of people because of their race, their religion or their life philosophy, their heterosexual or homosexual orientation or their physical, psychological or mental disability, shall be punished by imprisonment of no more than a year or a monetary penalty of the third category." Article 137d: "He who publicly, orally, in writing or graphically, incites hatred against, discrimination of or violent action against person or belongings of people because of their race, their religion or their life philosophy, their gender, their heterosexual or homosexual orientation or their physical, psychological or mental disability, shall be punished by imprisonment of no more than a year or a monetary penalty of the third category." In January 2009, a court in Amsterdam ordered the prosecution of Geert Wilders, a Dutch Member of Parliament, for breaching articles 137c and 137d. In 2016, in a separate case, Wilders was found guilty of both insulting a group and inciting discrimination for promising an audience that he would deliver on their demand for "fewer Moroccans. Facebook has also removed this person Geert Wilders Page, Twitter should also do the same and remove his account from Twitter.Twitter's Policy: Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories. Example of what we do not tolerate includes, but is not limited to behavior that harasses individuals or groups of people with: Repeated and/or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone. Context matters.  Some Tweets may seem to be abusive when viewed in isolation, but may not be when viewed in the context of a larger conversation. While we accept reports of violations from anyone, sometimes we also need to hear directly from the target to ensure that we have proper context. We focus on behavior.  We enforce policies when someone reports behavior that is abusive and targets an entire protected group and/or individuals who may be members.  Therefore, kindly remove Geert Wilders (@geertwilderspvv) Twitter account & Ban him making other accounts.

Petition to Dramatists Guild, League of American Theatres and Producers, American Academy of Arts and Letters

Ban "Corpus Christi," a film adaptation of a play that portrays Jesus as homosexual!

The movie Corpus Christi is due to be released this June to August. It is a disgusting film set to appear in America later this year which depicts Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals! As a play, this has already been in theaters for a while. It's called "Corpus Christi" which means "The Body of Christ". It's a revolting mockery of our Lord. But we Christians can make a difference.That's why I made this petition. If we get enough signatures, we just might be able to prevent this film from being shown in Australia, Canada and America etc. Let's stand for what we believe and stop the mockery of Jesus Christ our Savior. Where do we stand as Christians? I am forwarding this to all I think will respect and appreciate being informed. Please help us prevent such offenses against our Lord.It will take you less than 2 minutes to sign this petition!If you are not interested and do not have the 2 minutes it will take to do this, please don't complain if God does not seem to have time for you. Imagine what would happen if this film were depicting Mohammad in the same way...the Islamic world would be in flames! Apparently, some regions in Europe have already successfully banned the film. All we need is a lot of prayer and a lot of signatures.JUST GET THE WORD OUT!....Will God be able to find at least 50 righteous people who are willing to express their concern and voice their opinion against this act of blasphemy?Boycott it.... spread this petition to all your contacts!

Petition to Facebook

FACEBOOK: PREVENT RELIGIOUS EXTREMISTS FROM CENSORING ATHEISTS AND SECULARISTS

Use the hashtag #LetExMuslimsSpeak and ask Facebook to protect its most vulnerable communities. What is happening? Atheist and Ex-Muslim organizations and groups find themselves yet again the target of censorship campaigns by religious conservatives - this time with the aid of Facebook’s reporting mechanism. Following what appears to be a coordinated reporting and flagging campaign, multiple atheist and secularist groups have been repeatedly restricted or shut down. Each time, allegedly in response to violations of its terms of service and community standards. Each time, no details were given as to which standards were violated.  How do they do it? Religious extremists are able to abuse flaws in Facebook’s reporting system to mass report and flag groups which are critical of Islam easily and effectively - and they are organized. Hundreds (perhaps thousands) of Groups exist on Facebook with the sole aim of shutting down others which they deem disrespectful of their religion.  Screenshot 1 Screenshot 2 Screenshot 3 Screenshot 4 As a result, atheist and secular communities and Pages are regularly shut down or restricted in coordinated reporting which triggers Facebook’s algorithm. More information about their reporting methods: http://arif.eu/archives/174 Constant Attacks These attacks are not new, in fact, they have become routine for atheists and agnostics, especially from the Muslim world. Last year, more than a dozen Facebook groups were targeted en mass, and a petition was created to request that Facebook restore them. However, the attacks have not stopped, and new groups are being targeting right now. Ex-Muslims of North America and Atheist Republic have been targeted this week - first temporarily losing access to News Feed - both receiving their blocks within minutes of each other. Later, Atheist Republic (a community with over 1.6 million followers which was founded by an ex-Muslim) was shut down altogether, restored, then shut down again - all without any clear explanation as to the nature of the removals. Others have been targeted as well, and continue to be targeted. A permanent solution is necessary.   What can Facebook do? Facebook should create a whitelist for Facebook Groups and Facebook Pages which are determined as vulnerable to malicious attacks. Reports and flags aimed at them should not be handled by automated mechanisms but reviewed and given due consideration by a trained Facebook employee. Facebook should penalize individual accounts and Facebook Groups which are found to have been repeatedly abusing its reporting system. These measures will help ensure that social media continues to be a valuable asset for empowerment of dissenting and minority voices - we ask Facebook to develop and implement these measures as soon as possible. A letter signed by dozens of atheists/secularist/humanist organizations to Facebook can be found here: PDF  HTML  The press release of the effort and most recent targeting can be found here: http://www.exmna.org/atheists-secularists-and-ex-muslims-call-upon-facebook-to-address-campaigns-to-silence-religious-dissent/ Sign this petition to show your support, and use the hashtag #LetExMuslimsSpeak and ask Facebook to protect its most vulnerable communities.
