This comes as Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked reportedly said in December that Tel Aviv had submitted 158 requests to Facebook over the previous four months asking it to remove content it deemed &#8220;incitement,&#8221; and said Facebook had granted 95 percent of the requests. We speak with Pulitzer Prize winner Glenn Greenwald about his new report for The Intercept headlined &#8220;Facebook Says It Is Deleting Accounts at the Direction of the U.S. and Israeli Governments.&#8221;
