The manager of Yarmouk FM Radio, Dr. Zuhair Al-Tahat, and Dr. Marcelle  Jweinat from the Journalism Department of Yarmouk University participated in a training workshop organized by the Arab World Center for Democratic Development and Human Rights in cooperation with the German Hans Seidel Foundation on "Hatred Speech on Social Media".

Altahat attributed the increase of violence among people to the speech of hatred expressed on the internet, thus stressing the importance of facing such a trend by reconsidering issues of freedom of expression and censorship of technology platforms. He explained that the many changes in the international political climate contributed to raising the level of hatred around the world; therefore, social media should be deployed to resolve and pacify the dispute, not amplify it.

In her turn, Al-Jweinat wondered about the role played by the companies that run such platforms, calling on them to monitor their content and prevent them from violating the ethics of media and freedom, especially regarding the provocative takfiri speech.
