Twitter Accounts with Star of David Profiles Locked by Twitter
The Campaign Against Antisemitism has reported that several Twitter users have contacted them in recent days to report that their accounts had been locked by the social media platform.
According to messages they received from Twitter, the images “violated our rules against posting hateful imagery.”
The images in question ranged from a white Star of David in a graffiti style to a superimposition of the modern blue star on the flag of Israel spliced with the yellow star Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis, to a montage of yellow stars.
Stephen Silverman, Director of Investigations and Enforcement at Campaign Against Antisemitism, said: “So often social media companies claim that they lack the resources to tackle hate on their platforms, but Twitter… chooses to target the benign symbol of a victimized minority instead of the countless racists who use its platform with impunity”.

“God, we ask that you expose the evils of antisemitism, and all forms of hatred throughout the world—that they might be dealt with before they’re allowed to fester and spread.”
