    Good question. Haniyeh, Hasrullah and Netanyahu should ALL have their accounts squelched, for perpetuating a 3000 year old fratricidal conflict for political reasons.

    The topic is Twitter and why one leader is banded for "supposed promotion of violence" yet another leader is free to boast about their violence. 


    Not about them having a their 3000 yr old freud.

    Hamas isn't the only group doing it. Hezbollah and the Israeli government are also abusing social media to promote violence.
    His Royal Orangeness's Twitter and Facebook accounts were not shut down for that reason alone, however. They were also suspended for egregious dissemination of misinformation. The attack on Tel Aviv happened, election fraud on a scale of SEVEN MILLION VOTES didn't.

    We are not deflecting to the stolen election. Plenty of other questions for that.

    Reason stated by Twitter is inciting violence.  If they are going to ban leaders for it then they should enforce it on all not just the one they dislike. 

    Show me a tweet where Israel is praisig the violence. This post was edited by my2cents at May 16, 2021 1:56 PM MDT

    Not the same thing.  He is stating facts. They are defending themselves. 
     Not glorying the violence.  ie. giving praise to God for it.

    Indeed, Israel is defending itself. Hamas is a terrorist organization whose only purpose is - to promote violence; it is the Hamas stock-in-trade - they build up the numbers of those rockets using so-called "humanitarian aid" (ignoring the welfare of their own people). Then having a achieved a nice-stock of them, fire them off, targeting civilians in Israel whenever the fancy takes them; and then use their 56 Arab and Islamic-aligned countries block-vote in their favor at the U.N. to falsely-accuse Israel of war crimes.

    “Humanitarian” aid equates to rockets:

    P.S. Perhaps contributor "Slartibartfast" may not be aware that his username was a character in the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams, where it was discussed as really meaning: "f@rtblast".

    Why is the leader of Hamas still on Twitter? In my opinion, that sort of action shows me what Twitter's ideals are and where their allegiance rests. Here is an article that pretty much sums that up.

    Amounts to bias. Plain and simple.
