Member of Hamas’s political bureau Mohamed Nazzal has strongly denounced Twitter and Facebook for blocking Palestinian pages in response to Israel’s diktats.
In press remarks to Quds Press on Tuesday, Nazzal said that Twitter recently blocked his page and dozens of pages belonging to Palestinian national figures because of their positions in support of the Palestinian resistance.
He added that a similar practice was already taken by the Facebook administration, deploring what he described as social media moguls for being tools utilized by Israel.
He also slammed the social media companies for flouting the freedom of opinion and being biased against the vulnerable people in Palestine.
The Hamas official urged all Palestinian, Arab and Islamic personages and institutions to boycott Facebook and Twitter in protest at the blocking of Palestinian pages.
In compliance with agreements with the Israeli government, the administrations of Facebook and Twitter have systematically blocked pages of Palestinian media outlets, national figures and activists, and removed postings that showed support for the Palestinian people and exposed Israel’s crimes and violations.
