Twitter Censors Eduard Dolinsky by Hiding his Profile

The reason I stopped using Twitter and Facebook is because of wanton censorship. A variety of blockages, shadow bans, termination of accounts is being deployed against a vast variety of people for an incredible range of transgressions. Sometimes you don’t even know what caused the ban you received. There is illegal content that should absolutely be removed from websites but most people are not sanctioned for any of that. And really, the correct answer, the minute you receive a ban is to stop using that site. There is Telegram, and everyone is posting there…

Now sometimes, the social media engage in a strange obstruction of content. Eduard Dolinsky is the head of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee and regularly posts information regarding the rampant rehabilitation of Nazi collaborators in Ukraine. This is what his Twitter page looks like when you load it…

So, apparently, brining attention to monuments to Nazis is including sensitive content. Look at the way the profile is hidden from view, as if it was deleted. This is a form of censorship as there isn’t a valid reason to hide his profile and its contents.

And his posts are equally hidden…

There is an option to change settings but I will not register to Twitter again.

Attacks on Jews in Uman

The other day, a pogrom on the Jewish community of Uman happened, four people ended in hospital.

On Friday in Uman a group of local hooligans, around 30 people, attacked the Jews near the grave of Rebbe Nachman and beat them up. As a result of the pogrom 4 Jews ended up in hospital. The witnesses say the hooligans were armed with sticks and knives. Because of many incidents and the inaction of the police, the Jews in Uman began organising a special defence group to protect themselves from hooligans.

The fight broke out after a small altercation between one Ukrainian and the Jews, after which he called his friends to beat up the Jews.

This is not the first time something like this has happened.

In 2016, two hooligans began spraying blood in the tomb of Rebbe Nachman, and dropped a pig’s head with a swastika etched into it. And there was also a grenade attack on the tomb.
