Twitter must identify racist tweet authors – French court

A French court has ruled that Twitter must help police to identify the authors of racist or anti-Semitic tweets. The ruling follows a legal complaint lodged by France’s Union of Jewish Students that racist tweets had breached French law.

French judges ruled Thursday that Twitter must identify the authors of racist tweets within the framework of the French site. Twitter has 15 days to comply with the order after which it will be fined 1,000 euros a day until it does.

The Jewish student union (UEJF) had been pressing Twitter since October to exercise greater control of what was allowed on the site, after a string of anti-Semitic tweets, although Twitter later removed the offensive messages.

“This is an excellent ruling that will stop a feeling of impunity among Twitter users that they can post whatever comments they like,” the student union’slawyer Stephane Lilti told reporters Thursday.

Twitter had previously said that it would only handover details of account holders if ordered to do so by a judge.

A surge of offensive hash tags have been trending on Twitter in France in recent months, including #UnBonJuif (a good Jew) and # UnJuifMort (a dead Jew). Twitter did delete some of the offending posts, but users continued in the same vein with #UnBonNoir (a good black) and #SiJetaisNazi (if I was a Nazi).

The French government argues that they were illegal under French laws against the publishing of discriminatory and racist hate speech.

The Jewish student union in the current court case was backed by France’s largest anti-racism groups.

The ruling has highlighted the row between the right to freedom of expression, which is championed by the American based social networking site and European laws on hate speech.

The campaign to name and shame the offenders has met with support among the French government. Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, the minster for women, published an opinion piece in the French daily Le Monde last month in which she appealed to Twitter to respect “the values of the French Republic” and to consider putting in place security alerts to stop hate speech spreading via the site in France.

Guy Birenbaum, a French commentator on new media and social networks, told the UK newspaper the Guardian that this was just one element of a cultural problem and that censorship was not the answer.

“I don’t think this [French]is a government like China which is interested in control or censorship. The real answer is education for young people in schools about how to use internet, speech and responsibility,” he said. He likened the offensive tweets “to a kind of game to push a hashtag up the trending ranks, like the competition to burn the most cars at New Year.”

Twitter’s position has consistently been that it does not moderate its content. But the site does have a procedure to flag up potential child abuse and can suspend accounts that it considers illegal.

Last October Twitter suspended the tweets of a neo-Nazi group in Germany following a request from the German government, which was the first case where Twitter withheld country content.

The site was also forced to turn over all private information submitted by an account holder arrested during an Occupy Wall Street protest last year after a New York State Supreme Court judge rejected the social network’s appeal.

RW - “This is an excellent ruling that will stop a feeling of impunity among Twitter users that they can post whatever comments they like,”. Imagine that, those who speak their mind are guilty of impunity. Is that a crime? I suppose so if the object of your rant is one of the chosen, a veritable god in mind, heart and body. Soon this sort of thing will be called 'sacrilege' and even greater penalties leveid on those not on yet their knees in abject terror of jew.

"Twitter must identify racist tweet authors" but they won't cause they was Jews themselves!

My Theory at least!
If the Jews are all innocent and saintly then that would be as big an anomaly among humans as if they were all plotting and scheming towards world domination!

US postpones award for Egyptian woman after anti-Semitic tweets surface

Published March 07, 2013

FoxNews.com

The Obama administration pulled back on plans to give an award to an Egyptian activist after anti-American and anti-Semitic messages were discovered on her Twitter account.

Samira Ibrahim, an Egyptian activist who rallied worldwide attention against forced "virginity tests" on female protesters, was supposed to be honored Friday along with nine others by first lady Michelle Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry. The State Department, though, announced that it would postpone the International Women of Courage award while officials investigate the tweets. Ibrahim is now headed back home.

"We, as a department, became aware very late in the process about Samira Ibrahim's alleged public comments," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.

Ibrahim, who was in the U.S. when the controversy arose, claimed her account was hacked, though the comments stretch back several months. Nuland said the activist has "categorically denied authorship."

But the administration is conducting its own review.

In July of last year, after five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed in a bombing, a tweet on her account said: "An explosion on a bus carrying Israelis in Burgas airport in Bulgaria on the Black Sea. Today is a very sweet day with a lot of very sweet news."

As a mob was attacking the United States embassy in Cairo on Sept. 11 of last year, pulling down the American flag and raising the flag of Al Qaeda, a tweet on her account said: "Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with America burning." The tweet was deleted a couple of hours later, but not before a screen shot was saved by an Egyptian activist.

In other posts, she declared Saudi Arabia's royal family "dirtier than Jews" and attributed all crimes against society to Jews and referenced Adolf Hitler.

The tweets were first reported by The Weekly Standard.

Sen. Mark Kirk urged the State Department to investigate and said other women were more deserving of the honor.

In a letter to Kerry, the Illinois Republican said Ibrahim used her Twitter account to "express anti-Semitic views and support for international terrorism" and called her hacking claim "dubious" given the timing and duration of the tweets.

Ibrahim was among seven women subjected to forced "virginity tests" after being detained during a protest in Cairo's Tahrir Square in March 2011.

She helped bring worldwide attention to the tests, which prompted the military to forbid the practice last year.

"Not only did she speak out about that, but she also became a real leader in her country in trying to address gender-based violence and other human rights abuses," Nuland said. "So it was on that basis that she was initially selected."

The State Department said Ibrahim also was arrested in high school "for writing a paper that criticized Arab leaders' insincere support of the Palestinian cause." She is a coordinator of the Know Your Rights movement, which seeks to raise political awareness and advocate women's rights in Upper Egypt.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

It's almost like twitter and facebook are some kinda jew monitoring mechanism with an alarm going off when the word jew is mentioned. Who would have guessed.

OMG, I just had a I couda had V-8 moment... the Jew's automatic monitoring system is structured around Twitter's 140 character minimum. In other words, longer messages require more work on their part.

Yes, I found it puzzling that Facebook & Twitter were so heavily promoted when actually they gave users little new communication capability.  Know folks that use Facebook but none that use Twitter.  Twitter advertised as "social media" when it's more advertising/monitoring media.  Facebook/Twitter make monitoring easier for Jews; they don't have to tap into their NSA sayanim.

Used to work with an old French guy who bragged about the good ole' blatantly-racist days in France where a shopkeeper could toss blacks out of her store.

There were no blacks in France in the good ole days, except maybe for a rare traveling blackamoor show, or a Congo pygmy or female "hottentot venus" on display in a cage.

By the way, did you know that the ape house at the Bronx Zoo once had Negroes on display?  I'm not making that up, it's true.

Before, roughly 80's, France didn't have the huge # of blacks like today but they were much more common there & in Italy than in Germany or Scandinavia.  France used to be the relative melting pot of Europe with big cities absorbing a wide array of immigrants.  Hitler even jibed at the Negrisation of France in Mein Kampf.

Hitler jibed at the negrification of the USA, with much more justification imho.  I think if he jibed at France for that reason it would have been because they used non-white colonial troops...but Germany had some non-white auxiliary troops too - including blacks!

I've never seen a single negro in old fims of Italy and France.  Take the magnificent classic - Children of Paradise - one of the greatest movies ever made - filmed under German occupation when culture - theater, etc. FLOURISHED in France - there were many thousands of extras in the Paris street scenes - didn't see a single one of Barry Soetoro's relatives - likewise in the UK and the rest of Europe - before they trashed it in their "Good War" - good for the Jews that is.

Could be that Hitler in re France was talking more about the Jazz culture negrification of France & not so much huge #'s of actual blacks in France.  Come to think of it I also never noticed pre-WWII photos/movies/literature showing significant # of everyday blacks there.  But wow on late 80's trip to Europe was amazed how common African blacks were in Paris, Milan etc.  In Germany I've seen very few blacks though many Turks & East Euros.

They have flooded western Europe and the USA with non-whites, and they are also force breeding them through the welfare programs.  It's their Final Solution to the Aryan problem.  They only started in on little Ireland 10 or 15 years ago - and you can probably see what they did in just so short a  time by looking at some "diversified" Dublin street scenes on Youtube. 

But first they softened them up with propaganda, as they always do. I remember this cute Irish girl I met once, and then we would up arguing because she thought Rosa Parks was the greatest heroine of all times.  They taught her all about "Rosa Parks" in Ireland.
