A couple of months ago, as Chancellor Angela Merkel was facing ever-increasing scorn and criticism on social media from ordinary German citizens, Minister of Justice Heiko Maas demanded that Facebook do more to suppress “hateful” opinions on the German branch of its site.

Facebook Bans Islam-Critics
In the middle of September, Minister of Justice Heiko Maas summoned Richard Allan from Dublin, who is responsible at Facebook for political matters in Europe.
