Wikileaks shared an Orwellian video over the weekend featuring Israeli Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett discussing how the Israeli government is monitoring “all posts” on Facebook and Twitter for “antisemitism” to report to “law enforcement” and “intelligence” agencies in “certain” European countries.

The video was clipped from Bennett’s presentation in January where he announced the creation of Israel’s “Antisemitism Cyber Monitoring System.”
Bennett praised Facebook and Twitter for censoring “fake news” but said they’re not doing enough to “fight antisemitism.”
“I’m calling upon the leaders of Facebook and Twitter: start acting,” Bennett said. “You cannot host all this antisemitism within your house and then just claim it’s freedom of speech. It’s not. It’s violence, it’s antisemitism.”
