FrontPage editor and Glazov Gang host, Jamie Glazov, received an intriguing notice from Twitter on Saturday morning:
———- Forwarded message ———
From: Twitter Legal <email@example.com>
Date: Sat, Dec 22, 2018 at 7:27 AM
Subject: Twitter Receipt of Correspondence
To: @JamieGlazov <firstname.lastname@example.org>
We are writing to inform you that Twitter has received official correspondence regarding your Twitter account, @JamieGlazov.
The correspondence claims that the following content is in violation of Pakistan law: Section 37 of PECA-2016, Section 295 B and Section 295 C of the Pakistan penal code
Twitter has not taken any action on the reported content at this time. We are only writing to inform you that content posted to your account has been mentioned in a complaint.
This notice is not legal advice. You may wish to consult legal counsel about this matter. If you believe we have contacted you in error, please let us know by replying to this email.

The link Twitter sent Jamie goes to Jamie’s tweet in question (inserted above) — which is an advertisement for his new book, Jihadist Psychopath.
Pakistan is warning Jamie that he is violating sections 295B and 295C of its penal code. Section 295B criminalizes “defiling the Holy Quran,” and carries a penalty of life imprisonment. 295C mandates that those who “by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representation, or by any imputation innuendo, or insinuation, directly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life and shall also be liable for fine.”
So we are looking at the punishment of death, imprisonment and/or a fine — and all not necessarily in that order.
This whole issue begs a question: What is it about the title “Jihadist Psychopath” that Pakistani authorities have a problem with exactly? Are they conceding that Muhammad was a Jihadist? Are they suggesting that they view their prophet as a psychopath? Or both?
Robert Spencer has posted a blog about this development regarding Jamie and Pakistan/Twitter – and he reveals that Jamie is far from alone in this curious and disturbing development. Make sure to read Robert’s blog HERE.
Robert’s blog documents how Twitter, along with other leading social media venues, is now fully onboard with enforcing Sharia compliance. Indeed, Twitter is now actually informing American citizens of the dire punishments they will receive, including death, for violating Islamic blasphemy laws. And in so doing, Twitter is making it clear that it supports Islamic blasphemy laws and the punishments for them.
Will Twitter soon also be assigning its employees to carry out these punishments?
A harrowing and Kafkaesque world we are entering, indeed.

Régimes which practise sharia insist that their law is superior to any other, even though the evidence suggests that the supposedly omniscient deity was obviously seriously befuddled, what with all the inconsistency, immorality, illogicality and downright criminality wrapped up in sharia. What does Twitter gain from seeking to act as enforcer for the hideously corrupt Pakistani state? If anyone needs evidence that sharia does not result in any kind of rule of recognisable law, Pakistan is a pretty obvious Exhibit A.
ThIs looks like the classic victimhood pyramid, where islam has contrived to position itself right at the top and all the other self-styled victims meekly accept inferior status. The idea of “intersectionality”, popular in some victimhood-craving circles, ceases to apply here. There’s no leap-frogging the muslims by being muslim and homosexual, or muslim and female, or muslim and black.
Arab islam despises homosexuals, women and anyone who isn’t Arab. It is a racist culture and a rapist one, which continues to practise slavery and, presumably, always will. Yet the Left, exemplified by the ideologues at Twitter, bows down before islam.
It’s time Islam reform & be part of the civilized world. The sharia must be outlawed globally. As a 9/11 Family I think God, Sharia is against the law in America. There is no freedom under totalitarian sharia. Now Pakistan wants to threaten civilized people? Hell no! Civilized peace loving Muslims better unite to end this barbaric bullying. The world is not going to stand for this any more.
I do hope your joking, Islam can’t be reformed only obliterated!
Well, as Twitter says, it’s only a matter of information. Why interpret it as an embrace of Sharia? The situation is bad enough as it is without exaggerating it. The government is forcing social networks to take responsibility for their posts in a finding contrary to clause 230 of the Telecom Act that long protected the Internet. In a world of billions of tweets and posts, this is an impossible demand and disastrous overreach, but it does not constitute an endorsement of Sharia.
George Gilder: I think you’re being naïve as to the psychological effect of the information. However you look at it, it’s a warning of sorts which Twitter has given, essentially, on behalf of the Islamic Pakistani complainant. As a warning to the Glazov Gang not to go to Pakistan for their holidays, that’s very decent of Twitter. But that’s not how the warning is pitched as in it Twitter comment on their taking action on the matter (none AS YET). What action MIGHT they have taken?! Hopefully reply to the complainant explaining that the jurisdiction of Pakistani law doesn’t extend beyond Pakistan? Why didn’t they reassure Jamie of that, and while they were at it let him know they’d explained to the Pakistani complainant that Mohammedans’ beliefs about Mohammed are blasphemous to Christianity but that we tolerate blasphemy in the West?
This is exactly what I warned America about in my book, Crescent Moon Rising, The Islamic Invasion of America!
Not only are our politicians welcoming these terrorists with open arms, but our PC churches and pastors like Rick Warren are snuggling up to these devils.
Just take a look at Sweden and see the control the terrorists have over the country. Give them an inch and they are in our congress and state houses.
Thanks for sharing this vital neassage
The punishments directed against blasphemers and apostates may be carried out by anyone. Getting a warning from TWITTER Is like RECEIVING A DEATH SENTENCE THAT WILL NEVER BE REMOVED.
Sharia permits the MURDER of anyone who verbally opposes Islam, since they are at war with Islam:
“There is no indemnity obligatory for killing a non-Muslim at war (‘kafir harbi’) with Muslims.” -Reliance of the Traveller, o4.17, p.593
Sharia law forbids the ‘mention’ of any Islamic topic by a dirty kafir.
The Sharia manual of the Shafi school states:
“We have already discussed killing the person who, with intent, curses the Prophet, belittles him or slights him in any way. The judgement in this case is clear.” (i.e. the sentence is execution)- from Sharia law manual, “Qadhi Iyaadh in ash-Shifa”, Volume No.2, Page No. 27
-as-Suyuti writes: “(If they break their oaths…) This ayah (K. 9:11-12) is used as a proof by those who say that if a dhimmi attacks Islam (VERBALLY) or the Qur’an or MENTIONS the Prophet in a bad manner, HE IS KILLED, whether he has broken a treaty or not. Those who say that his repentance is accepted use as a proof, ‘hopefully they will stop.’”
– from a Sharia law web site…the “punishment of execution which sharee’ah imposes on everyone who reviles the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), whether he is a Muslim, a dhimmi or a mu’aahid, because transgressing against the status of the Prophets is disbelief in Allaah Almighty, and it invalidates every sanctity, right and covenant; it is a major betrayal which deserves the most severe punishment.
3 – Although this was a hadd punishment, it also comes under the heading of killing a harbi (a non-Muslim in a state of war against Islam), and it is permissible for anyone to kill a harbi.” (i.e. vigilante murder is permitted by Islam)
Twitter is a strong propaganda of totalitarian regime whether it is Sharia Law or Marxism-Leninism. For 2 years it has been rejecting information even on communism behind the Iron Curtain, which is an essential factor of modern history. The evidence of social media being ran by dictators is concrete, and yet they are still free to execute the most inhuman factor of totalitarianism as is deprivation of freedom of expression and punishment for disobedience.
The goal is that Islam be confined to Greater Arabia only.
I see no nonmilitary resolution.
The only answer I can think of, is MASSIV BLASPHEMY!!! Every politician, journalist, intellectual, syndicalist, and so on… who doesn’t react with blasphemy ist DE FACTO collusive /complice of evil.
