It cannot be denied that although terrorism has proved remarkably ineffective as the major weapon for taking down governments and capturing political power, it has been a remarkably successful means of publicizing a political cause and relaying the terrorist threat to a wider audience, particularly in the open and pluralistic countries of the West. When one says 'terrorism' in a democratic society, one also says 'media'.

I think that any network has a job to not let their network be taking over and used to do wrong. I know this is a very sensitive subject but I think there was clear signs there were using Facebook and no one took any measures to shut it down. More and more lawsuits like this will come about and Facebook will be no more.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, argued that Facebook"knowingly provided material support and resources to Hamas ... facilitat(ing) this terrorist group's ability to communicate, recruit members, plan and carry out attacks, and strike fear in its enemies".
