Twitter Censoring Criticism of Israel As Hate Speech

Between 1948 – 54 and possibly over a longer period, Israel was responsible for the abuse and disappearance of 100’s if not several thousand Yemeni babies.

This heinous act has been reported by the BBC, Haaretz, the New York Times, the Financial Times, the Independent, and many other global news outlets.

According to various official and independent sources, parents of newborn Yemeni babies, were told by doctors and other officials, that their babies had died during or shortly after birth.

We now know this to be a lie and a coverup by hospitals, the medical profession, and the Israeli government.

In December 2016, the Jerusalem Post published news of 200,000 documents concerning what is believed to have happened to these innocent babies.

Originally, these files and documents were ordered sealed until 2071 and only released after much public pressure and outrage.

Many of these babies are now believed to have been given to Israeli families, whereas other babies may have been used as organ donors, and some underwent post-mortem surgical procedures.

Similarly, another injustice committed by Israeli doctors and officials, is the recent revelation that some Ethiopian Jewish mothers, were forcibly sterilised.

So what does this injustice and travesty have to do with the social media platform, Twitter, you may ask?

According to my own sources, it would appear from a number of reports received, that Twitter is accusing users of hate speech; for merely posting any comments or links to articles or references, of these missing and disappeared Yemeni babies.

Presumably, under pressure from members of the Jewish diaspora, Zionist supporters and organisations, and the Israeli government, that users who post such content are committing blood-libel and thus an expression of hatred or prejudice towards Jews.

On the contrary, posting something on social media which is in fact based on the truth and historical, documented facts, can never be a form of hate speech and should never be curtailed.

Users who link to these reports and/ or post any links, comments, or articles, are being threatened with having their accounts suspended by Twitter and advised to remove them, thus denying the truth of occurrence of these events.

If we go down this route, then we will all ultimately lose control of our individual sovereignty and universal human rights, including the freedom to speak out and criticise our own and other governments for what are crimes against humanity.

It would appear in this instance, that Twitter is bowing to official pressure to silence Israel’s critics.

I haven’t posted the names or details of those whom I am aware have been threatened by Twitter. The reason I have not  is to respect their right to privacy and prevent any abuse they may receive for speaking out.
