On Thursday, Twitter unveiled its biannual Twitter Transparency Report, headlining the memo with what appear to be impressive statistics in cracking down on terrorist promotion materials.

Contrary to Twitter’s transparency claims, however, Conservative Review has found that major, U.S.-designated terrorist groups continue to operate openly on the social media platform.

The U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas, which openly calls for the annihilation of Israel and the West as a whole, has multiple social media accounts on the platform. The group has pages that it regularly updates in English, Arabic, and French. Additionally, many Hamas officials operate personal Twitter pages.

A prominent pro-Hezbollah Twitter account, @ResistanceER, continues to operate openly on the platform as well. Hezbollah is another U.S.-designated terrorist organization.

The account for Muslim Brotherhood preacher Yusuf Al Qaradawi still remains on Twitter. Qaradawi has in the past used his platform to endorse suicide bombings against U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Israeli troops.

The account for the global Muslim Brotherhood remains on Twitter. The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in the early 20th century with the goal to install a worldwide Sunni Islamic caliphate. Its alumni include 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden and ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. Its slogan goes: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” The group has been outlawed in Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Russia. Both incoming Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton have supported designating the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

The terrorist regime in Iran, which current and former U.S. administrations consider the world’s foremost sponsor of terrorism, maintains several organizational and personal Twitter accounts, even as the country bans the social media outfit for its citizens.

Additionally, the Taliban posts a plethora of terrorist material on a regular basis.

And many more U.S.-designated terror groups, such as FARC, the PLFP, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Communist Party of the Philippines, the Tamil Tigers, and countless others have Twitter accounts. These are but a handful of examples of terrorist groups and promoters operating openly on Twitter. The question remains: Who or what groups, exactly, were suspended in Twitter’s highly touted great purge of terrorists?


Answer: Those who oppose Muslim terror groups like Hamas, CAIR, Hizbollah, etc.

  1. To be honest… We all knew the Twitter “crackdown” just like the Facebook “crackdown” was just toward conservatives.

  2. I’ve been in Twitter Jail for the last few weeks for insulting a Libtard who insulted my President. I have refused to delete my comment, rather than kowtow to the will of Communist mind police. Of course, I have no way of knowing if the Twitter cops took it down, because I am banned from reviewing my account. Can’t wait for the resurrection of America to begin.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
