Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been petitioned to clampdown on anti-Semitism on the social networking site. The petition, which has secured over 19,000 signatures, was started by Swedish Jew Anna Berg, who has been battling anti-Semitism in Scandinavia.

The petition states that the anti-Semitic pages and photos on Facebook  ‘are vile, horrific,  hateful  and  filled with classic anti-Semitism and Jewish stereotypes.’  It calls on the social media site to ‘stop the hate’ or risk being accused of ‘actively supporting the spread of anti-Semitism.’

The internet has recently become a breeding ground for anti-Semitism, with controversial books such as Mein Kampf and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion being widely available.  While social media sites such as Twitter have been the medium for hate speech against the Jewish community.
