Meta suspends accounts of US politician over criticism of Israel

Nov 20, 2023 | Political News

The social media accounts of two-time Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein have been suspended by Meta, which owns and controls Instagram and Facebook.

Stein, who has already announced her 2024 bid for the US presidency, said on Thursday on X, formerly known as Twitter, that after refusing to help her regain access to her Instagram account, Meta disabled her new account, claiming it violated rules on “account integrity & authentic identity”.

Meta informed Stein on Wednesday that no one could see or find her account, and she cannot use it.

Also, the US Big Tech firm decided to permanently delete all her information.

Earlier, the pro-Palestine Stein had issued warnings about the brutal genocide now taking place in the Gaza Strip in plain sight.

In another posting on X, she said she wanted to speak about the current massacre taking place before our eyes in Palestine.

She called for an investigation of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the war crimes committed in Gaza as well as the role of US President Joe Biden in aiding and abetting the Zionists in their crimes.

She insisted that above all the genocide “must stop now!”
