Twitter - Banned for criticising Hamas

Banned from Twitter for criticising Hamas

In Dec 2023, I got banned from Twitter for criticising the terrorists and gang rapists Hamas.

This is despite the fact that:

  1. Elon Musk took over Twitter to make it a place for free speech.
  2. I pay a Twitter Blue subscription.
  3. Elon Musk himself visited Israel in Nov 2023 to meet the victims of the Hamas massacre and rapes.


The background is as follows:

Francie Molloy implies that Jesus, a Jew, would be at risk from the Israeli bombing of Hamas.


My reply

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.

Twitter ban

I got lots of angry replies from:
  1. Deniers that Hamas raped any Jewish women.
  2. Open Hamas supporters.
  3. 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.

I appealed and Twitter restored the account.

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. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. 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 shadowbanning me 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: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
