French court orders Twitter to reveal details of users posting anti-Semitism (JTA) #JIDF

Sadly you really can not legislate against free expression and the right to anonymity. You will see this shortly. Any attempt to protect citizens from hate will be used to silence legitimate criticism against Islam

(French court orders Twitter to reveal details of users posting anti-Semitism | JTA – Jewish & Israel News) — A French tribunal has ordered Twitter to divulge details about French users who posted anti-Semitic messages.
Thursday’s ruling by a judge of Paris’ Grand Instance Court came in response to a lawsuit by the Union of French Jewish Students, which sought to limit the impunity with which Twitter users may disseminate anti-Semitic incitement.
“It is a major precedent and breakthrough in the attempt to balance privacy online with the need to combat hate speech,” Sacha Reingewirtz, vice president of the Union of French Jewish Students, told JTA.
The court, he added, imposed a pending fine of $1,300 against Twitter for every day in which it fails to deliver whatever details it possesses on users who are suspected of disseminating hate speech on Twitter. The ruling, Reingewirtz said, applies only to people who did so in France.
Additionally, the ruling by the Paris court’s 17th chamber ordered Twitter to set up a system in which French users may flag anti-Semitic content, which would later be reviewed by Twitter before removal and possible referral to the authorities. The ruling was given at the court where a few dozen activists assembled alongside journalists.
“Social networks were created as essentially democratic tools that are also being used by people who oppose democratic principles,” Nuno Wahnon Martins, director of European Affairs at B’nai B’rith International, told JTA. “Like any democracy, the social networks also need to defend themselves and the first step is to deny those who spread hate speech anonymity as something to hide behind.”

Like usual the Jewish community is looking to government to resolve something that can not be resolved except through a Jewish state. Hatred is part of free expression. Groups like the @JIDF are a little more shrewd in that they do not turn to legislation and look to merely enforce already existing self imposed social network codes.

facebook has free expression? you crack me up McBride. they don’t. they censor all the time. they just choose to allow Jew hate into their community standard. we aren’t asking for censorship. what we ask is if there is a community standard that hate speech be part of it. ideally no network of over 20 thousand people should have censorship. it’s wrong. it’s arbitrary. and that was Ad Hominum and below the belt to assume our stance. I’m blocking you again and will surveillance you with other accounts. you and your comment editing… hypocrite.

—————————

“Noah — Kahanist groups like the JIDF, which you support, have defined as “Jew haters” mainstream Jewish groups like J Street and even Barack Obama and the Obama administration! The JIDF has posted hundreds of harassing and threatening messages against Facebook, Wikipedia, Google, Youtube and other Internet services, demanding that they hand over editorial and political control over their companies to religious and political extremists like yourself.

denying the correlative is the assumption to assume that all Kahanists felt the particular action of Rabin’s assassination was strategic. another example of why you are weak is you argue below the belt and apply labels to people. that and the hypocrisy of your comment censorship… which is legal, but you complain about the issue on other people’s profiles. again. JIDF only wishes that social media apply fair terms. if facebook is already censoring then we ask them to censor hate speech. we prefer a better standard however. if you knew a thing about me McBride you would know that when I was at Carnegie Mellon University before I graduated I was part of the community of activists that organized against Marty Rimm and censorship on university computers and we made all major news outlets. Including Time Magazine, NewsWeek, NYTimes and even the Village Voice. I still have news clippings with my photos. at the time I was a member and designer of the website Envirolink dot org.
