Attorney Brian Cuban, brother of Dallas Mavericks team owner Mark Cuban, has been trying since last year to have the pages of groups with such names as "Holocaust: A Series of Lies," and "Holocaust is a Holohoax" removed from Facebook.
He pointed out that Facebook has removed groups based on complaints before and said the site is "setting the subjective standard on what they remove and what they don't."
at the time of this post...
However, "Based on the facts...there was no Holocaust" and "Holocaust is a Holohoax" appear to have been taken down.
the following lists content to which some of the groups in question link:
We Support Iran We Support Hizbullah We Support Hammas Shaheed Ke Jo Moat Hai Woh Qoum Ke Hayat Hai Quran Woh Kitab Hai Jo Dars-e-Iqalab America Murdabad Israel Murdabad
the following are comment posts pasted from some of the groups Cuban would like banned:

i guess if you are as big as facebook, although you have the legal departments to ensure that you are not allowing for violations of your terms of service, the size of the site makes it hard for you to moderate every group. i have seen this repetitively across many large and small social sites - web 2.0 social news, forums, blogs, etc. this issue serves as a wake up call to community masters that don't audit content on their sites that could be violating their own terms of service.
