Man arrested by Israeli police after writing 'good morning' on Facebook

However, the Facebook automatic translation replaced the innocent greeting with the Phrase "hurt them" in both Hebrew and English.

The Palestinian worker was arrested after posting a picture of himself leaning on a bulldozer at the construction site where he works in a West Bank settlement near Jerusalem.

Facebook "good day" in Arabic, after the software of the social network had accidentally translated its publication by " tackle", said on Sunday the police and the media.

The police officers, who did not speak Arabic, relied on automatic translation suspecting that the man was threatening to conduct a hit-and-run attack with a bulldozer, which has been used in previous terrorist attacks, the media outlet reported.

Israeli bulldozers, under the protection of Israeli police who cordoned off the area during the demolition, demolished the house of al-Faqir family, leaving it homeless.

The arrest took place last week, but the man was freed a few hours later when the police realized the mistake, according to the article in the israeli newspaper.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri told the AFP news agency that "a few days ago, a Palestinian was detained for questioning on suspicion of incitement through his Facebook page". "When it became clear what was published and there was no suspicion of incitement, the suspect was released immediately". As of the time of this post, it has only been reported by Israeli media, which unfortunately does not mean fair coverage.
