Facebook deleted “Stop Islamization Of America,” a group with over 50,000 members in the wake of a deadly Islamic terror attack in Orlando, Florida.

The page was run by Pamela Geller, the well-known Islam critic and Breitbart contributor who led efforts to stop construction of the Ground Zero Mosque. Geller reported the removal of her Facebook group on Twitter, and called on supporters to politely request its reinstatement in a subsequent post on her personal website.

The timing of the shutdown could not be ignored. According to Geller, the group had been in operation for six years. Yet only after rising concerns about Islam following Omar Mateen’s homophobic, religiously-motivated attack on the Orlando dance club was the page taken down.
