Mark Zuckerberg has become the most powerful person in Silicon Valley.
But his political views have also become more extreme, with the CEO of Facebook and Google now a vocal critic of the American military.
His words have become increasingly strident, and his statements on the subject of US involvement in Syria have become more bellicose.
Zuckerberg has spoken about the importance of stopping the US involvement and his belief that the US military has become a tool of the US government.
And he’s become increasingly outspoken about his support for a military intervention against the Syrian government.
The CEO has also expressed his support of US President Donald Trump’s plans to use military force to help retake the city of Aleppo.
But it appears that the public may not be getting the full picture from Zuckerberg.
We asked our expert experts to pick out the most egregious and misleading statements Zuckerberg has made about Syria, and to weigh up the claims of a military-first president against his stated positions.
What we found was that the statements were not only misleading, they were also extremely inflammatory.
We’ve highlighted some of the most glaring examples below.
We’re also keeping an eye on Zuckerberg’s comments to see whether they are still true, as they have become far more inflammatory since he came to power.
But before we get to the allegations against him, let’s have a look at what exactly he’s said in the past.
The most egregious statements We’ve chosen to highlight the most offensive statements Zuckerberg made on Syria, which are the most obvious and egregious examples.
Facebook has always made clear that it is not a government-sponsored propaganda platform.
When Facebook published a video in February 2016 showing an alleged Syrian military unit in Aleppo fighting against an opposition group, it said: Facebook posts are intended to inform and educate people about the current state of affairs, and not to promote any specific political or social viewpoint.
In another post on May 20, 2016, Zuckerberg called on Facebook to ban any Syrian government propaganda content, saying: Facebook has already banned all such material.
However, he added that he was “not sure” what the Syrian regime was doing in Aleppo and how it could have achieved its goals, and that he would look into it.
We also pointed out that Zuckerberg had not been in Syria in a year, and the videos he had posted in the previous months were not from Syria.
In December 2016, Facebook published footage of a group of people celebrating the capture of Aleppo by Russian-backed Syrian rebels.
The footage showed people celebrating a rebel victory in the city, which was previously under government control.
The caption on the video said: Celebrate the capture and liberation of the largest city in Syria, Aleppo, from the Syrian army and Russia.
Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In a January 2017 post, Zuckerberg said: We can be certain that the Russians have a very strong interest in the success of this operation.
In the same post, he said that the Syrian military was responsible for the capture.
However he also said that he hoped to be able to “make the Russians and the Syrians feel good about themselves by getting them to respect our rights and values”.
He also said: I think the Syrians will feel that they are being respected by the Russians.
In February 2017, Zuckerberg was again asked about the use of propaganda in Aleppo, and said: The United States and its allies are not interested in getting rid of ISIL [ISIS] from Syria and Iraq.
In this regard, I do not believe that we are involved in promoting ISIL’s defeat, as this would be very difficult for the Americans to do.
In June 2017, he was asked about a statement he had made in February 2017 that he believed Russia should stop supporting the Syrian opposition: Facebook is not going to get involved in fighting ISIL or other terrorist groups.
The statement, which appeared in a Facebook post, said: It is extremely important to understand that the main aim of our efforts to support the Syrian people is to bring an end to the violence and the Assad regime’s abuse of power.
However the Facebook post also said he believed that the United States should be willing to work with Russia and Iran to “put a stop to ISIL and other terrorist organizations”.
Zuckerberg did not respond to an inquiry about whether he believed the statement to be true, or if he believed it was meant to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
He did, however, add that he “strongly disagreed” with the idea that the Trump administration was using propaganda in order to support Assad.
He added that Russia was also supporting the opposition to Assad.
“In our opinion, there is absolutely no justification for the use and abuse of social media and social media platforms in order, or at the cost of the Syrian peoples’ human rights and freedoms,” he wrote.
But the President’s National Security Council did not deny the existence of propaganda on social media, and it pointed to a 2016 study that showed the spread of extremist propaganda was down.
We reached out to Facebook for comment, but did not hear back.
In November 2017,
