Twitter Suspends Ex-Muslim Cartoonist, Allows Hamas and Hezbollah

Hamas has a Twitter account. It links directly to the website of a terrorist organization responsible for murdering thousands of people. And which advocates genocide. Al Aqsa TV, Hamas' tv channel, also has its own Twitter account.

Hezbollah's Al Manar TV also has several Twitter accounts.

Both of these are recognized terrorist organizations. Hamas is listed as a FTO terrorist group by the State Department. Providing services to it as Twitter does, may be illegal.

But Hamas and Hezbollah are a few of the many Islamic terrorist organizations and supporters who are active on Twitter. But while Twitter has no problem with terrorists. It does have a problem with those who criticize them.

Bosch Fawstin, an ex-Muslim critic who was targeted in the first ISIS attack in America, has been suspended by Twitter.

I challenged Twitter’s decision to suspend me, through their channels, and they just told me in an email that their decision stands, that my account will not be restored because they claim my account “was found to be violating Twitter’s Terms of Service, specifically the Twitter rules against hateful conduct.” They went on to say that “It is against our rules to promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease.”

So I replied with this:

You have suspended my account without Any proof of your claim that I have violated your rules. You write that it is against your “rules to promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people”, and yet you don’t cite any tweets of mine where I’m guilty of that, because I’ve never done that."

Bosch's final Tweet was this.

While Twitter killed Bosch's account, it still allows Jonathan Brown, an Islamist who endorsed slavery, to tweet. Canary Mission has compiled a long list of calls to murder Jews and endorsements of Hitler by student members of hate groups like SJP on Twitter. Instead of suspending the Islamic bigots, Twitter at one point suspended Canary Mission.

It is a travesty that Twitter chooses to silence those who combat racism and anti-Semitism, while allowing accounts that call for the extermination of Jews to operate freely.

But that's just how things work on Twitter. But that doesn't mean we have to take it.

If you have a Twitter account, let @TwitterSupport know how you feel about Hamas being welcome on Twitter, but not an ex-Muslim critic of Islamic terrorism.
