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 said: "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 the company's 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."
