Facebook temporarily shut down The Jerusalem Post reporter Khaled Abu Toameh’s Facebook page, possibly in response to a campaign by anti-Israel activists who object to Abu Toameh’s views on corruption within the Palestinian Authority.

On Monday, Abu Toameh posted a link to an Arabic report in a Jordanian newspaper about a corruption trial of former Jordanian intelligence chief, an a link to an acerbic blog post slamming the Palestinian Authority he wrote for the Gatestone Institute, where he is a contributor.

“The truth sometimes hurts,” Abu Toameh wrote in the blog post. “That is why the Palestinian Authority has been working hard to prevent the outside world from hearing about many occurrences that reflect negatively on its leaders or people.”
