Quote:An Israeli TV station conducted an experiment: it asked a Palestinian and an Israeli (both citizens of the state) to post on Facebook calling for revenge killings. In four hours, the Palestinian's post received only 7 likes without any comment while the Israeli poster received 1200 likes and more than 30 shares. There were many comments (under the Israeli post) along the lines of "we are proud of you". The Palestinian received calls wondering if his account has been hacked. What happened next? The Israeli police quickly moved to arrest the Palestinian guy and would not release him until the Israeli TV station explained that it was conducting an experiment. As for the Israeli guy? The police never bothered to even visit him. He was left alone.
