Facebook has been deleting accounts at the direction of governments, including the Israeli, U.S., Chinese, and German governments.
Facebook has used the rationale that the accounts it has deleted were inciting violence. Yet Facebook refrains from deleting many accounts that very openly encourage violence.
Facebook should apply its policy consistently, and not at the direction of any government.
In fact, if it applies that policy consistently, Facebook will have to include many government accounts among those it deletes, because they support violence including war and police violence.
