On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, along with American billionaire Elon Musk, visited Kibbutz Kfar Assa and other areas around the Gaza Strip.
“The prime minister briefed Musk on the horrors of the kibbutz massacre during the events of Saturday, October 7,” Netanyahu’s office said in a statement.
Netanyahu and Musk visited the Itamari family home, where Musk heard about Avigail Aiden (age 4), whose parents were killed and kidnapped to Gaza and released on Sunday.
At the end of the visit, the Israeli prime minister and the American billionaire toured the kibbutz, whose residents “suffered most of the atrocities on October 7,” according to Netanyahu’s office.
Netanyahu, who met with Musk in California on September 18, urged him to strike a balance between protecting freedom of expression and fighting hate speech after controversy over anti-Semitic content at Platform X.
Musk reiterated his previous statements that he is against anti-Semitism and anything that “incites hatred and conflict” and does not promote hate speech on the X platform.
During that visit, about 200 people protested Israel’s right-wing government’s attempts to limit the powers of Israeli courts. They gathered in front of Tesla’s factory in California where the meeting was taking place.
On November 15, Musk approved a post
The White House condemned the “despicable promotion of racism and anti-Semitism that runs counter to our fundamental values as Americans.”
Major US companies have temporarily stopped advertising on X’s website.
The conspiracy theory claims that Jewish people and leftists are creating ethnic and cultural changes with non-white immigrants that will lead to “white genocide.”
Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia have increased in the United States and around the world, as well as during the war that broke out between Israel and Hamas seven weeks ago.
Since the outbreak of the war, anti-Semitism incidents in the United States have increased by nearly 400 percent compared to the same period the previous year, according to the Anti-Defamation League, a non-profit organization that fights anti-Semitism.
