Germany: Facebook approves antisemitic comments

Via Tagesspiegel:

Tagesspiegel writes that Facebook ignores complaints about anti-Semitic comments on the site.   It should be noted that comments in German are checked by German-speaking Facebook employees.

When they complained about sexually explicit photos, Facebook was very responsive and immediately removed the photos.

Antisemitic comments inciting to violence?    Facebook wasn't as quick to respond.

A comment saying "You belong in a concentration camp.  I'd rather be a Nazi than a gay Jew. Heil!" was approved as holding to Facebook's community standards.

Tagesspiegel say they see many hate comments on their page, with the worst being posted in regard to the refugee debate.
