6 months in jail for liking Facebook post

March 31, 2013
Anas Ismail, 29, of Salfit, near Nablus, was found guilty of “libel and slander.” Ismail is the second Palestinian to be imprisoned for Facebook activities in the past few days. He said he was accused of clicking “Like” on a status that called for sacking former PA Communications minister Mashhour Abu Daka. Careful with that button!
