Led by Pastor John Hagee, Christians United for Israel has launched a campaign to ban Hamas from Twitter. The campaign is using the hashtag #BanHamas.
In addition to having members email Twitter, each email will be copied to the office of the San Francisco based U.S. Attorney. In part the email to Twitter states:
"The United States government has designated Hamas as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. Under 18 U.S.C. 2339A, it is illegal for any U.S. Company to provide "material support" to a terrorist organization. This prohibited material support specifically includes "services" and "communications equipment." By allowing Hamas to have a Twitter account, you are providing it with an important "service" and extremely effective "communications equipment" which are central to its primary mission of terrorizing the Israeli people and using civilian deaths to score political points."
The emails conclude by calling on Twitter to act:
"I therefore demand that you observe both United States law and your own Terms of Service by immediately banning Hamas, the Izzadeen Al-Qassam Brigades and any related entities from operating Twitter accounts (e.g. @AlqassamBrigade). I have cc¹d the local office of the United States Attorney on this e-mail so that they can weigh appropriate legal measures in the event that you continue to permit terrorists to use your services."
