Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) is demanding answers from Meta – Mark Zuckerburg’s company that owns Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp – after an Instagram user’s story template and account was deleted for an anti-Hamas message.

The message in question is an AI rendering of a Hamas soldier with a rifle standing over a bloodied baby and an Israeli flag burning in the background.

Rep. Crenshaw asked for an explanation stating, “Hey Meta – care to explain why you are biased against people who want to highlight the horrors of October 7? Stop censoring truth.”

The image was made in response to the popular “All Eyes On Rafah” image that has spread around social media like wildfire as Israel continues its assault on the region.

Meta has since stated that it is “working to understand what technical problem led to its accidental removal.”

Recently, Representative Brian Mast (R-FL), a retired Army Staff Sergeant and former Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) volunteer spoke on whether Israel is feeling the international pressure as civilian casualties amount while also reminding Americans that some of their countrymen remain in captivity at the hands of Hamas.

“There's no question that Israel sees the international pressure,” said Mast. “But what's most stark to me is the fact that America is allowing itself, President Biden is allowing America to be pulled into this and continually forgetting the fact that we have Americans currently being held by these terrorists. We have Americans that were killed on October 7 by these terrorists, and there has never been an expectation that there will be Americans sent to come get those Americans that are being held. That's what's going on with this administration. No, no guarantee that America is there for Americans. That's not what this country is about.”

He also added, “If the world does not become up in arms about the fact that Hamas purposefully embeds themselves with civilians, purposefully places civilians in front of themselves, aid workers in front of themselves, purposely tries to use UNRWA as their locations to build tunnels for Hamas that go into Egypt and other places. As long as that's allowed to continue, then we will see what unfortunately the world doesn't want to see, which is a civilian killed here or a civilian killed there because of what Hamas does.”

Congressman Mast represents Florida’s 21st District.
