In Twitter’s world, calling the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization can get you suspended, but those defending Palestinian terrorist attacks and comparing American Jewish kids who join the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to ISIS foreign fighters rarely face consequences.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted last summer that his employees have a left-leaning bias, and this is evident both in how Twitter’s rules on hate are written and enforced. It should either tailor and enforce them equally or not have them at all.
Twitter suspended a Canadian Coptic Christian woman who goes by “Laura” and tweets under the handle @womaninmedicine in September for calling the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group. Egypt’s Coptic Christians were terrorized by gangs linked to the Muslim Brotherhood in the wake of the Egyptian military’s 2013 ouster of President Mohamed Morsi. Several countries, including Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Saudi Arabia classify the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.
