In Dec 2023, I got banned
from Twitter for criticising the terrorists and gang rapists Hamas.
This is despite the fact that:
Elon Musk took over Twitter to make it a place for free speech.
I pay a Twitter Blue subscription.
Elon Musk himself visited Israel in Nov 2023 to meet the victims of the Hamas massacre and rapes.
The background is as follows:
I am a fairly prominent Israel supporter in Ireland.
I have written newspaper articles and done public debate.
Every Christmas, Israel-haters post something saying that if
Jesus was alive today he would be somehow oppressed by Israel.
Rather ignoring the fact that he was a Jew.
Sinn Fein party (linked to the terrorist group the IRA)
are some of the main haters of Israel in Ireland.
Their terrorist wing the IRA worked with Adolf Hitler during the war,
and later worked with the PLO against Israel.
posted the following
on 4 Dec 2023.
implies that Jesus, a Jew, would be at risk from the Israeli bombing of Hamas.
I replied to the Sinn Fein man's post with the following:
I point out
the obvious - that Jesus was a Jew, so if he was alive today, Hamas would kill him.
They would kill Joseph and Mary and Jesus in the manner they killed so many Jewish families on 7 October.
Highly likely including rape.
I got lots of angry replies from:
Deniers that Hamas raped any Jewish women.
Open Hamas supporters.
Antisemites keen to point out that the Jews killed Jesus.
But who cares. I am used to the anger of such people.
However, what makes this different is malicious reporting which, incredibly,
found traction even in Elon Musk's Twitter.
Twitter says I will have a 12 hour suspension.
Twitter says it is for this tweet.
Elon Musk in late Nov 2023
visits the Kfar Aza
kibbutz, that was attacked on 7 Oct by the terrorists and gang rapists Hamas.
A few days later, his platform Twitter banned me for criticising Hamas.
Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists:
I love debate.
I love ideas.
But the Western left
and their friends the Islamic right
do not return the favour.
Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022:
I am on Twitter at
Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016.
You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas.
Starting in 2016,
Twitter became increasingly broken.
It became full of reporting and bans and censorship.
In 2019, Twitter even started
for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed.
By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.
Twitter is saved, 2022:
bought Twitter and started to end the censorship.
It looks great so far.
Twitter seems to be saved.
