Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter/X, to discuss artificial intelligence and combatting anti-Semitism within the bounds of the First Amendment. While initial reports suggested the meeting would primarily focus on anti-Semitism, Musk emphasized the importance of discussing AI, where Israel aims to play a significant role.
During the conversation, Netanyahu expressed his hope that Musk could use the First Amendment’s constraints to address anti-Semitism on Twitter/X. In response, Musk asserted his stance against attacking any group and his opposition to anti-Semitism and any form of hate or conflict promotion.

The context here is significant, as the Biden White House has previously introduced the “National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism,” developed in collaboration with pro-Israel groups such as the Anti-Defamation League. This strategy calls for online platforms to ban extremist websites and hate speech and to implement zero-tolerance policies to protect Jewish individuals from anti-Semitism. However, there is debate about how these measures align with the First Amendment, which does not explicitly endorse banning criticism of certain groups or hate speech.
In a related development, Twitter/X recently partnered with an Israeli digital ID company to offer premium users the option to verify their identity through selfies and government IDs. Furthermore, X CEO Linda Yaccarino has committed to expanding X’s censorship policies, including the removal of multiple accounts, in a bid to satisfy the Center for Countering Digital Hate, a group X is actively suing for defamation.
