Update: After this story posted, Twitter issued an alert to Mohamad’s tweet saying it “violated the Twitter rules about glorifying violence,” but that the platform “determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”

Former Prime Minister of Malaysia Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad posted a thread of tweets early Thursday in which he justified Muslims ‘killing millions of French people’ as a form of revenge. The tweet comes as news continues to develop surrounding a terrorist attack on churchgoers in Nice, France on Thursday that killed three people and injured many others. News from the attack is still developing.

Twitter’s Head of Site Integrity Yoel Roth didn’t immediately respond to this reporter’s request for comment via Twitter Direct Message in which he was asked:

‘Does the following tweet by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia violate Twitter rules? Also, does Twitter plan to remove the tweet over its incitement of violence, especially considering the context of the terrorist attack in France?’

On Wednesday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testified before the Senate Commerce Committee where he said the speech of world leaders, including the incitement and antisemitism by Iran’s Ali Khamenei, is typically protected as “saber rattling.” Dorsey also admitted that Holocaust denial doesn’t violate Twitter’s rules.

The terrorist who carried out Thursday’s brutal attack in Nice shouted “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great” in Arabic, as he carried out the attack, according to reports.

The attack comes amid growing tension between French President Emmanuel Macron and leaders of Muslim countries over cartoons circulating around France of the Prophet Muhammad. Macron defends the publication of such cartoons and has condemned the many Muslim nations pushing a boycott of French goods in response.

Thursday’s attack also comes just days after a Paris teacher, Samuel Paty, was beheaded for showing cartoons of Muhammad to his class.

The former Malaysian PM said he didn’t approve of the beheading of Paty, but said “Muslims have the right to be angry and to kill millions of French people for the massacres of the past” and added that the Muslim countries’ boycott of French products amid the dispute with Macron “cannot compensate the wrongs committed by the French all these years.”

The following is his threat that remains on Twitter:

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
