Upon Israel’s request, Twitter closes Hamas, Hezbollah accounts

MEMO | July 3, 2018

Twitter has closed a number of accounts belonging to Hamas and Hezbollah officials, the Israeli Ministry of Public Security and Strategic Affairs said yesterday.

According to Haaretz the move comes two weeks after Israeli Minister of Public Security and Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan sent a letter to Twitter’s CEO and executive chairman claiming the social media giant was “largely irresponsive to requests by the Israeli authorities to remove terrorist content and shut down terrorist accounts.”

He also said in his letter that “enabling terrorist organisations to operate freely and spread their messages via your platform may be a violation of existing Israeli laws regarding providing support to terrorist organisations.”

The letter supplied a list of 40 Twitter accounts which are affiliated with Hamas and Hezbollah and threatened legal action if they are not removed. Twitter, according to the Anadolu Agency, closed 35 of them.

  1. Freedom of speech, Ziostyle…

    “…a violation of existing Israeli laws…”??? Who gives a crap about Zioentity laws in the larger scheme of things? After all, the Zioentity cares nothing about international laws, standards of morality, human rights, etc., etc.

    And who is the “terrorist” among us?

  2. Twitter isn’t going to stand up against Israel….Just like the American Government, they fold like a pack of cards at the first sign of Israel’s (and Netanyahu’s)displeasure…
    What has happened to “Leadership” in the USA???
