Twitter defended its decision to flag President Trump’s tweet about violent demonstrations but not Iran’s calls for violence against Israel, suggesting to Israeli’s legislature on Wednesday that the latter fell under its protections for “commentary on political issues of the day.”

Human rights attorney Arsen Ostrovsky asked Twitter’s Ylwa Pettersson: “You have recently started flagging the tweets of President Trump. Why have you not flagged the tweets of Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei, who has literally called for the genocide of Israel and the Jewish people?”

Pettersson responded: “We have an approach to world leaders that presently say that direct interactions with fellow public figures, comments on political issues of the day, or foreign policy sabre-rattling on military, economic issues are generally not in violation –”

At that point, Knesset member Michal Cotler-Wunsh interjected and challenged Pettersson.

“So, calling for genocide is okay, but commenting on politics is not?” she asked.

Watch the shocking video exchange below:

  1. There obviously IS a double standard. Trump’s tweet was stupid and used an arcane expression urging violence against demonstrators that probably less than 20 percent of readers understood. The Iranian comments about destroying EY are mamash explicit urging of genocide, not some vague expression of foreign policy.

  2. show this to the Biden voters, mayve they will learn a lesson and vote for Trump. actually Yesterday congress was fighting the BIGTECH guys with the BIG MOUTHS. disgrace to everyone

  3. Yeah but my mama and papa voted Democrat. So did both my grampas and granmas. So what could be wrong? If they voted Democrat it must be good so I will follow my elders.

  4. @hu bacha – doubtful you can turn anyone with this. And Twitter was invited to the hearing, but didn’t bother showing up. I hope the government picks them apart.

  5. Mark My Word:- Because of Twitter’s despicable horrifying double standards, this in 1 fell swoop, has earned President Donald Trump numerous more votes, including numerous more votes in swing states.
    Thank you Twitter for having influenced so many more votes going to President Donald Trump in 96 days.

  6. She sounds like the person when you call support in some random all center somewhere, completely misses what you say and just says some robotic practiced answer about a similar thing.

  7. So glad to see them trying to hold Twitter accountable. Ms Twitter is saying that by not taking down komeini hate tweets it allows other to see what a hater he is. Twisted argument but interesting for historical sake. Like when he mysteriously loses his head, no one can claim that he embraced peace or that he didn’t have it coming. Sounds like an Irish accent, great haters of Jews them irish.

  8. GadolHadorah- I recently complimented you on something where you actually said something logical but now you’re reverting back to your nonsensical drivel. very disappointing!

  9. As I said Twitter IS using a double standard. Trump’s tweet quoting the racist Florida police chief from the 70s was stupid since at that time, most of the demonstrators were just that, demonstrating. The violent looters and anarchists who show up at all these types of protests were a relatively small percentage but unfortunately tend to dominate media coverage of events. No different from the Isreaeli peleg protests where a small cadre of bochurim transform peaceful protests into violent confrontations with police. In contrast to Trump’s stupid racee-bating tweets, the Iranian tweets were blatant calls for genocide.

  10. 5TResident – maybe you forgot, or did not bother learning in the first place, but mass murderers like Hezbollah, Hamas etc. are fully funded and supplied with advanced weapons by Iran. They don’t just talk genocide, the practice genocide in lots of places where their proxies roam free. Gaza is Judenrein, Lebanon is Judenrein, Syria is basically Judenrein. Hitler – lemach shemoi would be very proud.

  11. “Curiosity ”
    it doesnt matter if they ahowed up, trump said he will take care of them through executive orders if congress doesnt do the job. they will pay. jeff bezos is also a meshugina, he steals everyones money on amazon which he has no right to do. if i would have the patience i would sue them for all they got. they are beheimas

  12. that twitter explanation is laughable if not tragic. just real old fashioned anti-semitisim with a new explanation. as to that Iranian kook, are you surprised? it’s genetic for thousands of years

  13. Twitter is awful. Facebook is worse. Just Friday I reported SEVEN anti-Semitic comments to Facebook management; none were deemed in violation of “community standards”.

    And the people who run Facebook are Jews.

    The politician who first called for a breakup of the big tech companies was Elizabeth Warren. And within three days of her announcing her plan, Donald Trump opposed it. Of course.
