Twitter is under fire after defending its decision to allow Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to call for genocide on the platform, while censoring tweets from US President Donald Trump.
I kid you not! At Knesset hearing on Antisemitism, @Twitter rep tells me they flag @realDonaldTrump because it serves ‘public conversation’, but not Iran's @khamenei_ir call for GENOCIDE, which passes for acceptable 'commentary on political issues of the day'. cc. @CotlerWunsh pic.twitter.com/AXwjkrvlql— Arsen Ostrovsky (@Ostrov_A) July 29, 2020
The Zionist regime is the most evident example of state terrorism. Ever since Britain’s anti-Islamic, antihuman policies put the Zionists to rule in #Palestine, they have been acting like a cancerous tumor, furthering their goals by massacring children, women and men.#FlyTheFlag— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) May 19, 2020
Some argue that the Zionist regime is a reality that the region must come to terms with. Today the #Covid_19 is a reality; should it be accepted or fought?!— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) May 22, 2020
The long-lasting virus of Zionism will be uprooted thanks to the determination and faith of the youth. #Covid1948
This change in equation in occupied lands will bring the question of Palestine closer to final steps. Palestinian Authority has a great responsibility in this regard. One cannot communicate with a savage enemy except by force &brave people of Palestine are set to gain this power.— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) May 22, 2020
When @Twitter rep says @realDonaldTrump tweet violated their standards for "glorification of violence and the risk that it can possibly inspire harm", but is totally cool with @khamenei_ir straight up calling for genocide. Makes perfect sense. Not. https://t.co/gx8uddTEb6— Heather Gustafson (@mommymcgraw) July 29, 2020
As @jack and @Twitter continue to censor the free speech of many conservatives – including the President – the Ayatollah Khamenei’s account remains active and is posting #antiSemitic tweets promoting genocide.https://t.co/Jr2xWuwvM7— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) July 29, 2020
