Facebook appears to have taken down an anti-Semitic page titled "The invasion of Jews in Midleton," on Thursday.

The Facebook page noted the increased presence of Orthodox Jews in the Irish town of Midleton appeared online earlier this week, using words and images that could easily be construed as anti-Semitic.

The page photo had a picture of an ultra-Orthodox Jew bending down in the street in an awkward position with the caption “Jew Jitsu.” The page administrator also added a video post to the page of British-Jewish comedian Sacha Baron Cohen in character as anti-Semitic reporter Borat singing the song “Throw the Jew Down the Well.”

It was unclear whether the Facebook page had been created with anti-Semitic or purely humorous intent.
