Mark Zuckerberg & Sheryl Sandberg: Restore peaceful Pakistani FB page; compare to page w/ stoning-to-death how-to
Petition by

Mr. Zuckerberg and Ms. Sandberg,

Thank you for your many positive accomplishments. Please reverse the policy under which Facebook shut down a non-violent page of secularists and atheists in Pakistan. This shutdown is not making the world “a more open place.”

Those who wish to crush the human rights of Pakistani secularists protested to Facebook about this non-violent page of an oppressed minority. Facebook supported the bullies -- and the non-violent Saaenji page was deactivated:https://www.facebook.com/%C2%ADsaaenji 

This page is in the Urdu language. It was an act of bravery even to create the page.

Meanwhile Facebook has long allowed a page which provides specific image instructions on to how to stone people to death according to God’s law:https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=311857638916798&set=a.1...

When the stoning page was repeatedly reported to Facebook, Facebook replied that the level of graphic violence is acceptable – yet Facebook backed down to bullies who seek to oppress non-violent minorities. The Pakistani secular page is a voice of non-violent rationalism. Mr. Zuckerberg and Ms. Sandberg, based on your history, we are confident that you are people of good will. This violation of human rights cannot be your personal intent.

We are confident that you will condemn, and reverse, this unconscionable policy immediately. We request that: 
1) the non-violent Saaenji page be reinstated; 
2) the page advocating violence be shut down (or at least have consistent guidelines -- See #1); and 
3) policies are created to prevent bullies -- mob rule -- from crushing the rights – and the voices -- of those in a peaceful minorities.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
