Elon Musk CEO of X (French)

X Corp, the owner of the X platform (formerly Twitter), closed on Monday a new account launched by the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, on the X platform, and published some of its operations against the Israeli occupation army.

The "Al-Qassam" Brigades had launched its official account on the "X" platform on the evening of Monday, January 8, 2024, to share news of the resistance, the latest military operations, and developments in the confrontation waged against the Israeli occupation forces during the war in Gaza.

The al-Qassam account lasted only a few hours before the platform shut it down, claiming it "violated the platform's standards."

When journalist and political activist Jackson Hinkel asked Elon Musk's owner "X," "Why has Hamas's account been blocked on the platform when Israeli terrorists are allowed to keep their accounts?

Platform owner Elon Musk responded: "This was a difficult decision. While many government leaders, including in the United States, call for people to be killed, we have a UN exemption rule."

This was a tough call.

While many government leaders, including in the USA, do call for killing people, we have a "UN exemption rule"; if a government is recognized by the UN, we will not suspend their accounts.

Hamas is not recognized as a government by the UN, so was...

"If the United Nations recognizes a government, we will not suspend its calculations. Hamas is not recognized as a government by the UN, so its membership has been suspended."

The X platform has previously deleted hundreds of accounts affiliated with Hamas, after a threat it received from the European Commission, which threatened it with sanctions, and called on it to issue a clarification regarding information and photos circulating on the platform regarding the Al-Aqsa flood operation on the seventh of last October.

On October 7, the Palestinian resistance launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on military sites and settlements in the Gaza envelope, killing more than 1200,250 Israelis and capturing about <>, in response to the crimes of the occupation against holy sites and civilians in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.

Since the beginning of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, the Qassam Brigades has broadcast all its data via Telegram following the restriction of social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and X on Palestinian content.

On 29 November 2023, activists around the world launched the "We Will Not Be Silenced" campaign to protest the ban on pro-Palestine content and the restriction of its access on social media platforms.

Musk and appeasing Israel

On November 27, 2023, Musk visited Israel, met with its leaders, and toured settlements around the Gaza Strip, in an attempt to appease Tel Aviv after being accused of "anti-Semitism."

Musk appeared wearing a bulletproof vest and surrounded by heavily armed people, and upon arrival tweeted on his VX account: "Actions speak louder than words."

Videos documented Musk's visit to the occupied Palestinian territories and his meeting with Israeli President Isaac Herzog and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who took him on a tour to Kibbutz Kfar Azza in the Gaza Strip, which was one of the theaters of the Al-Aqsa flood attack on the seventh of last October.
