Twitter Has A Problem With Its Treatment of Jewish Americans

The platform is willing to lend itself to those who wish death to all Jews, but not Jews who use the First Amendment to defend themselves.

Twitter Problem Treatment Jewish Americans

Twitter seems eager to ban Jewish conservatives who are critical of radical Islam, while Muslim organizations tied to terrorism are welcome on the platform.

On Tuesday, Jewish conservative author and intellectual David Horowitz was briefly banned from Twitter. After a massive conservative backlash, the big tech platform claimed the ban was unintentional and reversed it.

It turns out Horowitz had the gall to call out Rep. Ilhan Omar, the anti-Semitic Muslim congresswoman, who according to Horowitz “blamed Israel for the 700 Hamas/Iranian rockets fired on civilians in Israel and called on the U.S. to withdraw its support for Israel.” Horowitz went on to explain that his “offending comment then followed: ‘Oh, and then we can get on with killing Jews.'”

Twitter deemed this a hateful comment against an individual, presumably Omar, when it clearly was a sarcastic condemnation of her anti-Israel rhetoric.

While organizations like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, which are linked with terrorism, and considered terrorist organizations by multiple nations, are allowed on Twitter, condemning elected American officials who support these organizations is cause for alarm at Twitter headquarters.

Horowitz’s concerns are not without merit. Hamas states that its singular goal is to “obliterate Israel”, the ethnic homeland of Jews around the world. They also claim that “The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight Jews and kill them.”

Meanwhile, Muslim Brotherhood activists pledged to fight the “battle against Jerusalem’s Judaization” and stated that their goal is to “kill all the Jews.”

These organizations receive a pass from Twitter for unknown reasons, while Jewish writers and activists are under massive scrutiny.

Laura Loomer represents a perfect example. Loomer is an activist who has dedicated her life to exposing radical Muslims throughout the world, including, according to her, in the halls of Congress.

As punishment, the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Council on American Islamic Relations lobbied for Twitter to ban her. Twitter obliged CAIR in November of last year, banning Loomer from the platform. Loomer responded to her ban with a lawsuit, but the wheels of justice within the United States court system move slowly.

Repeatedly, we have seen Twitter, which is owned in large by Saudi Arabia, shut down Jewish Americans at the behest of Muslim organizations and individuals, even though these organizations may have directly or indirectly called for the death of all Jews.

This leads some to wonder whether Twitter has a problem with all Jews, or merely those who align themselves with President Donald J. Trump.

Update: Since this article’s publication on Tuesday night, Twitter has permanently suspended Horowitz’s account.
