The Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism (ISCA) has expressed concern about the surge of anti-Zionist sentiments on Twitter.
Several Zionist associations have urged Elon Musk to alter his Twitter policy to stem the deluge of anti-Zionist tweets. American basketball star Kyrie Irving, who plays for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association (NBA), is one of the social media users who tweeted anti-Zionist comments.
In his tweet, Irving referred to a documentary that argues not only that the Holocaust did not occur but also that Zionism germinated the seeds of racism against the African-American community. Kanye West, the renowned American rapper, was also suspended from Instagram owing to his anti-Zionist remarks.
On Twitter, Kanye West rebuked Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, writing, “Why did you remove me from Instagram?” West’s tweet received the following reply from Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner: “Welcome to Twitter, my friend!”
Now, in less than two months, Musk repudiates his earlier supportive comments and blocked forever West’s Twitter account forever, saying:
“I tried my best. However, our rules have been violated and this page is permanently suspended.”
