Twitter Must Adopt the IHRA Definition of Antisemitism Now
Join more than 180 organizations in a call for Twitter owner Elon Musk, to tackle the spiraling antisemitism on Twitter.
Join us by SENDING THE FOLLOWING EMAIL to let Elon know that Twitter must adopt the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism:
Dear Mr. Musk and Twitter management,
Since its establishment, Twitter has become one of the world’s preeminent social media platforms for online discussions, where citizens, elected officials, and the media exercise their right to free expression and engage in healthy and productive conversations.
To maximize the probability that the future is good, the world needs an online platform where everyone can participate. Unfortunately, this is not the case, as Jewish users are subject to unrelenting harassment on Twitter.
Exchanges of ideas on Twitter must not come at the expense of your users’ safety, especially during a time when antisemitism around the world has reached an all-time high. I firmly believe you have the capacity to protect Jews from antisemitism on Twitter.
But in order to fight antisemitism it must be defined.
Therefore, we call on you to update Twitter’s anti-hate policies by adopting the globally recognized IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism as a guiding tool to stymie the spread of Jew-hatred.
Nearly 40 countries, including the United States, have already endorsed or adopted the IHRA Working Definition, as has an overwhelming majority of civil society groups at the forefront of the fight against antisemitism. The IHRA Working Definition covers various types of antisemitism, including justifying the killing of Jews in the name of radical ideology, Holocaust denial, and denying the Jewish right to self-determination in the State of Israel.
Adopting the IHRA Working Definition would provide Twitter with an effective and neutral tool to protect Jewish users from antisemitic content along with the hate and violence it can inspire.
We call on Twitter to rise to its commitment to be the “modern town square,” and facilitate a future that is good, by fully adopting the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism.
