One of the biggest Twitter accounts dedicated to circulating information and advocacy for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, @Unity4J, has been completely removed from the site. The operators of the account report that they have been given no reason for its removal by Twitter staff, and have received no response to their appeals.

Any Assange supporter active on Twitter will be familiar with the Unity4J account, which originated to help boost the wildly successful Unity4J online vigils in which well-known Assange defenders would appear to speak out against his persecution. As of this writing, the account has been gone for a day and a half.

"About 8:45am CST on Thursday July 11, one of our Unity4J Twitter team members went to retweet on the account and noticed that the account was no longer accessible," reports pro-Assange activist Christy Dopf, one of the operators of the account. "When each of us also attempted to access the account we all received the same message 'Account Suspended'. Twitter did not send us a reason or violation for the suspension. So an appeal was submitted. We did receive correspondence that Twitter got our request and the case is currently open. Unfortunately we do not have a timeline on how long this could take."

[Ed. note: The linked story variously uses "suspended", "removed", and "deleted"; seemingly interchangeably. When attempting to load " the response was:

Account suspended

This account has been suspended. Learn more about why Twitter suspends accounts, or return to your timeline.

so it appears that there may be hope for the account to be unsuspended; time will tell. --martyb]

    Islam is antisemitic too, so what? Isn't the pro migrant faction full of jews? aren't media and entertainment fully converted to it? Who owns media and entertainment? why would they want Europe to host Islam when they don't like it at home? The chess pieces are moving. An Islam infested Europe is yugoslavia 2.0 with 100x the opportunities, and a lot of fresh jews expats ready to populate the promisedland maybe. Sucks to be euro-peon in the coming years sadly.

    Antisemitism is what sionism is based on. If we correctly started making distinctions among the jews, considering the thief the patriot and the sociopath instead of "Jooos did it", sionists would not like it one bit. They need The Persecuted Jew that seeks salvation in a piece of land which was already delivered as per promise, instead of seeking it in a messiah. Uncle Adolf helped a lot in this regard, BTW, like today neonazis do. Sure there is alt right which sees through this, just like there is some left that sees through sionism.
