JERUSALEM – Elon Musk, owner of X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, warned Friday that people using terms such as “from the river to the sea” and “decolonization” would have their accounts suspended.

“As I said earlier this week, ‘decolonization’, ‘from the river to the sea’ and similar euphemisms necessarily imply genocide,” the South African magnate posted on X.

“Clear calls for extreme violence are against our terms of service and will result in suspension,” he added.

Musk was responding to a user who asked if people using those terms would be suspended.

Musk also said that “’decolonization’ necessarily implies a Jewish genocide, thus it is unacceptable to any reasonable person.”

The slogan, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” is a call for a Palestinian state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, encompassing not only Judea and Samaria but the entire state of Israel. (TPS)
