An Israeli law center said Thursday it is threatening to sue Twitter unless the social network cuts off access to groups, including Hezbollah, that are considered terrorist organizations by the United States. The law center, Shurat HaDin, describes itself as being "dedicated to enforcing basic human rights through the legal system," and says it has represented "victims of terrorism in courtrooms around the world." In a letter to San Francisco-based Twitter, attorney and Shurat HaDin executive director Nitsana Darshan-Leitner wrote that "it has come to our attention that Twitter, Inc. provides social media and associated services" to such groups as Hezbollah and the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Shabaab — labeled as "foreign terrorist organizations" (or FTOs) by the United States.
DeathbyenzyteExpand Comment Comment collapsed by the community So,now we are supposed to start giving up our rights to placate the Jews? It's bad enough we act like their pet,now we're gonna start chopping away at our very Constitution to better serve Israel's needs? Even the Vatican (1965) caved in because they didn't like hearing how they killed Jesus.Who the hell do these people think they are?

No they should not be conducting in-depth back ground checks on all their customers, if however it is clear that they are providing their service to a group that has been deemed to be a terrorist organisation then they should be answerable in a court of law. For example Twitter should not allow the user name “Hezbollah” or variations of it as this are clearly supporting a terrorist organisation.
I can’t help but think this thread is getting a little bit silly in asking questions like this and asking me if I think the people who invented the English language are aiding terrorists (a really stupid question). It’s frustrating when I give a clear response to a post stating my opinion only to be subjecting so such childish questioning. If you have a different opinion to me then that is fine, explain your reasoning behind it, back it up with some facts, then we can discuss it but please do not persist with the line of pointless questioning that does nothing to challenge my view.

It starts with Hezbollah and is gradually expanded to deny Occupy movements, pro life group, pro democracy groups, human rights organizations like UNICEF and Amnesty International from being barred access.
I'm sorry, this is America and not the next imperial colony of The Nation Of Israel and as far as I'm concerned they could just shove it.
Would that be expanded include groups like anti Isreali groups, pro Muslim groups?
See the slippery slope that starts, not ever going to happen!
