Moroccan migrant arrested in Spain over antisemitic hate speech
Spanish authorities arrested an illegal immigrant from Morocco allegedly for inciting on social media hatred against Jews.
The 32-year-old man disseminated hate speech “against the Jewish community [of Spain] and generally” on Facebook and YouTube before his arrest earlier this month in the Canary Islands, ABC Canary Islands reported Saturday based on information given by a source in the national police.
The report did not name the suspect, but it did say he that the content he shared had “considerable reach” on Facebook. He had been under investigation since 2017.
Arrests over hate speech are rare in Spain.
