The silicon valley company said it took the decision because it bans users who “proclaim a violent or hateful mission or are engaged in acts of hate or violence.”
“Individuals and organisations who spread hate, or attack or call for the exclusion of others on the basis of who they are, have no place on Facebook,” it said in a statement.
The following organizations and people are now prohibited from the site: The British National Party and Nick Griffin, Britain First and Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, English Defence League and Paul Ray, Knights Templar International and Jim Dowson, National Front and Tony Martin, and Jack Renshaw.
They were all outlawed under Facebook’s ‘Dangerous Individuals & Organisations policy’. They will no longer be allowed a presence on Facebook or Instagram and posts and other content which expresses praise or support for them will also be banned.
“Our work against organised hate is ongoing and we will continue to review individuals, organisations, pages, groups and content against our Community Standards,” the statement added.
The Knights Templar International said it was “horrified” by the ban, and that it was investigating legal options. “Facebook has deemed our Christian organisation as dangerous and de-platformed us despite never being charged, let alone found guilty of any crime whatsoever,” it said in a statement. “This is a development that would have made the Soviets blush.”
In February the social media giant banned EDL founder Tommy Robinson from its platforms saying the prominent anti-immigration activist repeatedly breached its policies on Hate speech.
The Cyprus mail reported: A group of 31 Syrian migrants were picked up near Kato Pyrgos late Monday. Despite the bad weather, their vessel had docked in occupied Limnitis from where the passengers were taken to Pyrgos. Among the Syrians on the boat were a family with two young children aged 5 and 6 and 27 men. The migrants were taken to the Polis Chrysochous police station. Later in the day they are expected to be taken to the reception centre at Kokkinothrimithia in Nicosia.
Here we are repeating ourselves again, but I believe that many people do not realise the gravity of what is going on. Italy has turned on their immigrants, which is understandable considering they do nothing but make demands and show nothing but contempt for the countries that take them in. Most of these are now being dumped in Cyprus instead, the numbers have grown exponentially over the last year or two and here we are constantly saying what we think we should be seen to say.
The reality is, that they are being quietly dumped in Cyprus, they are coached on how to behave, what to do and what to say, so they can quietly slip under the radar until they are granted asylum and then they can move on to mainland Europe, where they are counted as ‘European migration’
THIS IS ALL PART OF AN AGENDA!
There are SIX BILLION people in the world, living in abject poverty, how many can we take? Every time we take one in, we encourage a hundred more to make their way here, but that does not matter to the left wing white shaming Snowflakes, who have nothing but contempt for everything that Europe stands for.
We SHOULD NOT take these people in, NONE OF THEM, migrations within Europe is one thing, but this is an invasion and it is not an accident.
Sadly this situation is actually being created and we should direct our attention to those who are causing this. Fortunately, our leaders here in Cyprus are not warmongers, they are just corrupt thieves!
We need to see through the narrative, Europe is under attack, we are under attack, along with everything we stand for. People need to stop saying what they think they should be seen to say, it’s time to call a spade a spade!
The Cyprus Mail reported………
A LEGISLATIVE proposal is to be tabled to the House plenum in January aiming to give parliament a say in the criteria governing the issuing of passports to foreign nationals under the citizenship-by-investment scheme. The bill, authored by the Greens, is expected to go before the plenary session on January 11, the first session following the Christmas recess.
It stipulates that the criteria for these naturalisations need to be submitted by the government to parliament, before they are published in the government gazette. Currently, the terms and conditions for the citizenship-by-investment programme are determined by the cabinet, with no further scrutiny.
In prior discussions in parliament, the interior ministry said it was opposed to the Greens’ bill, arguing that it would deprive the government of the flexibility in periodically updating or revising the naturalisation scheme. Ruling Disy said also they are against the provisions of the bill, while main opposition Akel are in favour.
The Greens tabled the proposal after another bill they had submitted – mandating the publishing of the names of foreign investors granted passports – failed to muster support in committee. In October, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development placed Cyprus’ so-called ‘golden passport’ programme on a blacklist of schemes identified as posing a threat to international efforts to combat tax evasion.
Is this what it has come to? We sold our soul to the EU and now we are prostituting our land for profit, selling off land that was for the main part owned by Cypriots in the past, much of which was placed in the name of the Church for tax reasons under the Ottomans, but was subsequently kept by the church and now, in partnership with corrupt developers, it is being sold off to people who do not have nexus with Cyprus, people who do not care, people who are only interested in gaining a foothold in Europe.
This is yet another shameful scandal for Cyprus, this administration (and those that preceded it) have NO IDEA about implementing effective and unifying Nation building policies, no....they only care about profit and pulling the ladder up, but meanwhile, hardworking Cypriots struggle with pitiful salaries and overpriced property prices created by a bubble that has no logical basis, no form foundations and one that will surely burst, taking down innocent people with it, but the instigators will not suffer, just as the instigators of the crisis that resulted in the THEFT of innocent people’s bank deposits did not affect them.
I feel that this ‘Golden Visa’ policy’ will not end well. Cyprus is a small island and we cannot keep selling off to non-Cypriots, that is not racist, that is not divisive, it is based on a desire to avoid being overrun and pushed out.
What I find to be the greatest tragedy, on the note of Nation building is that there is not and never has been any inclusive policy to unite Cypriots, to make it easier for them to move to Cyprus, live in Cyprus and most importantly offer their children a state English speaking school. In fact, English was actually REMOVED as an official language back in the 80s, making it even harder for Cypriots who are living outside of Cyprus to return.
What saddens me the most, is that this administration is willing to sell its soul to people who have no interest in Cyprus whatsoever, yet they will do NOTHING to encourage a unified Cypriot Demography. If this continues, Cyprus as we know it will cease to exist and one day, those of us who remain will wake up strangers in our own land.
The Heads of State and Government and High Representatives, will be meeting in Morocco on 10 and 11
December 2018, reaffirming the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants and determined to
make an important contribution to enhanced cooperation on international migration in all its dimensions,
have adopted this Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration:
This act will ENFORCE migration on everyone, it will punish those who object and reward those who support it!
Here is an excerpt from the compact....
Refugees and migrants are entitled to the same universal human rights and fundamental freedoms, which must be respected, protected and fulfilled at all times. However, migrants and refugees are distinct groups governed by separate legal frameworks. Only refugees are entitled to the specific international protection as defined by international refugee law. This Global Compact refers to migrants and presents a cooperative framework addressing migration in all its dimensions.
Here's another one....
Establish open and accessible information points along relevant migration routes that can refer migrants to child-sensitive and gender-responsive support and counselling, offer opportunities to communicate with consular representatives of the country of origin, and make available relevant information, including on human rights and fundamental freedoms, appropriate protection and assistance, options and pathways for regular migration, and possibilities for return, in a language the person concerned understands
This will legitimise actively encouraging migration, giving them the advantage at the expense of the indigenous population and increasing the campaign to destroy Western society.

Cultural Marxism may appear to represent some long lost ideology that fell with the Berlin wall, but it is not, it is very real and it is gradually being enforced on society today. The west, which despite the 'white shaming agenda' is the pinnacle of progress and modern civilisation, is falling at an alarming rate.
The cultural lack of respect for our society, or even our continent has not just opened the doors to an influx of those who despise the very values that we stand for, it has opened the floodgates. Political correctness has been used to gag the masses and thanks to strict policing of social media, it has increasingly become offensive to protect our wonderful society for the fear of offending.
It is not yet clear if it is too late, but my guess would be that it is, because the population of Europe represents such a small fraction of the world's total that on further investigation, it becomes clearly apparent that within a generation or two, the Europe that we know will have gone for ever.
Those on the left, may consider that to be a good thing, within Germany, there have even been politicians celebrating the end of the German Race as a national identity, but do they really understand the full implications of becoming the minority to those who hold our society in contempt?
I believe that we are approaching civilisations' darkest hour, it may be within my lifetime that a European country will become the first to fall in to 'indigenous ethnic minority' and that day, will be the day that the annihilation of everything we hold dear will become recognised.
The political classes in anticipation of a backlash are pushing for further distribution of migrants to the far reaches of Europe, with plans to extend that in to leafy villages so that there is nowhere to hide, nowhere to continue our way of life and nowhere that it will be acceptable to object.
This is without doubt, a snowball effect, as the number grow, as our identity is eroded, as the emerging generations show less and less respect for their heritage, the numbers supporting open borders and globalisation will grow, while the persecuted indigenous Europeans, who are a tiny minority in the order of things, are slowly eradicated.
The level of deceit that is being instigated by the political left to cover up the catastrophic effect of mass migration is COLOSSAL! Throughout Europe, there is violent crime that is being 'covered up' in order to protect the greater migration agenda.
