Twitter, an American company, has been ordered by a French Court to reveal personal data of users posting anti-Semitic messages. RT’s Maria Finoshina examines the case to see if the concept of free speech should have different boundaries in different countries.

    Why does the alternative media love Jews so much? Why won’t the Jews let the goyim talk bad about them?
    What good is cattle to the farmer who won’t produce? A cattle that disobeys the farmer is of no use.
    Do the Jews care about the goyim? Yes! In the same way that the farmer cares about his cattle. A sick cattle cannot produce. A sick cattle cannot labour. A disabled cattle is of no use to the farmer.
    The cattle accepts the farmer’s bargain the same way the goyim accept Jewish controlled money.

    The reason why you guys don’t “Rights” seriously in Europe, is because Europe is a continent. The don’t have rights, they have shit. That’s why almost all the eurpean countries are in debt, and can’t get out of it, because they don’t understand the basics of human rights.

    Not long ago the French were claiming “Free speech” when they were laughing about Prophet Mohamed.

    if the speech is truly going to cause a death of som jewish person i would agree about the id of the persons however if its just someones opinion, about the way that person feels personaly about a race it falls under free speech. if the person threatens murder then its a crime! crimes need to be delt with saying how you feel about certain people is not a crime.we cannot allow another country to dictate to us about our rights. i aplaud france for not wanting to put up with it . it should stop!

    If Ethiopian Jews …
    If Ethiopian Jews were complaining about antisemtism, the whites would have looked the other way, because, all they would have seen was the color of the Ethiopians skin. However, because these so called Jews are White, then every white person is fighting to protect them no matter what sort of evils they are getting upto or in this case censor others and taking away their freedom of expression. Hypocriy and double standard at its finest.

  20. Normwicks says:

    why is it that …
    why is it that france dosnt want the info on the hate speech against blacks on the internet, or the chinees, or many of the other races that are slamed by hate speech. not just oncebut multiple races hundreds of times! why is it that the jews get this special attention. i do not subscribe to any racial hatred, but im seeing a pattern of special treatment for a race. hundreds of thousands of american indians were masacred and still victims of hatred the same with blacks as slaves beaten.

    If jews, Moslems, Catholics, Christian evangelists don’t like the Internet they don’t have to use it.
    Free speech is precious in this world of deception and smart moves. This is just another attempt to curtail freedom. Twitter should get rid of people who are bad mannered and offensive. We don’t need laws to tell is what to read, what to say and when to take a dump
