TikTok Bin Laden

"I'm not sure why people are surprised and even upset that some teenagers don't know who the hell bin Laden is."


This page previously displayed a document containing, in translation, the full text of Osama bin Laden’s “letter to the American people”, as reported in the Observer on Sunday 24 November 2002. The document, which was published here on the same day, was removed on 15 November 2023.

The number of people calling for the banning TikTok doubled in a day.

" platforms are perhaps the most important speech regulators in the world." 

Youtube removed the video and gave me another strike. Back to Daphne Keller, Evelyn Douek, Stanford and the Knight Anti-First Amendment Institute.

Two days ago American big tech threw a party for Xi Jinping. Both use spyware and practice "speech regulation". It's all so obvious.
I still have the video file. We'll see how long this lasts.
DUBAI, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Iran's supreme leader delivered a clear message to the head of Hamas when they met in Tehran in early November, according to three senior officials: You gave us no warning of your Oct. 7 attack on Israel and we will not enter the war on your behalf.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told Ismail Haniyeh that Iran - a longtime backer of Hamas - would continue to lend the group its political and moral support, but wouldn't intervene directly, said the Iranian and Hamas officials with knowledge of the discussions who asked to remain anonymous to speak freely.

The supreme leader pressed Haniyeh to silence those voices in the Palestinian group publicly calling for Iran and its powerful Lebanese ally Hezbollah to join the battle against Israel in full force, a Hamas official told Reuters.

Hamas didn't respond to questions sent by Reuters before the publication of this report. After publication, the group posted a statement on Telegram saying it denied the validity of the report, which it described as "baseless". The post didn't specify what was inaccurate, and Hamas didn't immediately respond to a request for clarification.

Oct 9 Chicago Council on Global Affairs 

Prior to the recent attack by Hamas, six in 10 (57%) said the United States should be ready to meet with leaders of Hamas, including half of Republicans (51%), and majorities of Democrats (61%) and Independents (59%).

On most other questions there are great partisan differences. While most Americans preferred the United States take neither side in the conflict (64%), Republicans were equally likely to say they should take Israel’s side (49%) as no side (48%).

from AA, on the 13th, who missed the larger point, as I said there but not here. Hamas fucked up.
