After MK Ariel Kellner of the Likud party claimed that social networks, including Facebook, deliberately harass right-wingers and do not allow them to speak, a discussion initiated by Kellner will be held tomorrow (Tuesday) in the Knesset's Interior Committee.

The discussion will be attended by several well-known right-wingers such as Yoav Eliassy (Shadow), Ran Carmi Bouzaglo, Galit Distel Atbrian and more.

Carmi Bouzaglo says, "Every right-winger needs two pages because you are blocked on everything. I was blocked on delusional things. For example, I upload pictures from left-wing demonstrations and they block me because of this and recently I was also informed that they are going to remove my page."

"There is a policy of mouth-watering right here. I think there is an organization of left-wing protesters to report on the pages of right-wing activists. After all, as soon as a number of reports are received on Facebook, they automatically block or submit for review. It runs like a country within a country."

MK Ariel Kellner, the initiator of the debate, said: "Without freedom of expression, there is no freedom.

It's time for Facebook and social networks to choose: either they are a platform or they are a newspaper.

After being excluded from the institutional media, the freedom of expression of the right is in jeopardy in the only place where it has received expression.

I expect company representatives to come to the discussion and give good answers.

In any case, the time has come to regulate the issue of social networks in legislation, and I intend to lead this move. "
