StandWithUs Facebook pages have been hacked. As one of the largest Israel educational pages on Facebook and with a hugely popular website and social media accounts, we are aware of constant threats and attempts to remove our content by extremist groups. We reach millions weekly in multiple languages.
Due to this, we invest in a high level of online security. This is a hack within Facebook itself. At one point an image supporting ISIS was posted on one of our administered accounts. Obviously this is an unacceptable situation. We are working with Facebook at the highest level to ensure that we are back online as soon as possible. We expect that Facebook will be able to bring our pages back online quickly.
We are determined that our voice will not be suppressed by those that mean us harm. We will post updates via our website: www.standwithus.com - Thank you for your support of StandWithUs at this time.
