Twitter suspended Bosch Fawstin again, for daring to question Marvel's Islamic propaganda

The ex-Muslim cartoonist Bosch Fawstin had his Twitter account suspended again, it appears, for challenging Marvel's Muslim propaganda in the form of the Ms. Marvel book (H/T: Breitbart):
Here’s the gist: Marvel’s Muslim superhero comic book, Ms. Marvel, is being published during wartime, while Muslims are on the warpath, and the comic book, which has been around for about four years, completely avoids the Only reason we began to discuss Islam: Jihad. I take great exception to that, as an American and as a cartoonist who writes and draws a comic book that takes on Islam and Jihad, The Infidel, featuring Pigman. If you don’t know, I’m a recovered Muslim, and the winner of the Mohammad Cartoon Contest. Jihadists came to kill those of us at the event and died for it. I mention this to show that I’m committed to this fight of telling the truth about the enemy and his ideology, despite death threats.

And speaking of death threats, I reported two death threats that I got from Muslims on Twitter, and Twitter did Nothing about them, leaving their accounts intact. Let that sink in.

Back to Marvel. Marvel fancies itself as telling stories about “the world outside of our window”, but they completely ignore the war that is literally outside of their window in Manhattan. Comic books used to take on America’s enemies. Now, both Marvel and DC Comics publish Muslim superheroes, while completely ignoring Jihad, and presenting a false, benign version of Islam to readers. It’s the equivalent of them publishing German and Japanese superheroes during World War Two, without any mention of the war that was going on, in the comics.

Here’s the full context of my tweet that supposedly did me in on Twitter:

The head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, was asked by someone on the BBC, if Marvel’s Muslim superhero will appear in Marvel’s movies. And Feige answered yes. I ask why. The heroes in Marvel’s films have been around for over sixty years in the comic books, so they’ve stood the test of time, and making movies with them makes sense. This Muslim superhero barely sold 13,000 copies of her comic book last month, which are cancellation numbers, so she’s unpopular, no matter Marvel’s propaganda that she’s “popular”. There’s No demand for Muslim superheroes, not even by Muslims. But the coward leftists at Marvel Comics who allowed Marvel’s Muslim editor, Sana Amanat, to shoe-horn a Muslim superhero into Marvel’s lineup, are too afraid to cancel the comic book. And now, Marvel Studios is too afraid to answer “no” to a question about her being in the movies. (Amanat is now Marvel’s Director of Content and Character Development. She actually wears a Yassir Arafat scarf at comic book conventions.)

So I tweeted about it, calling out Marvel for continuing to publish this Islamic propaganda comic book while Muslims continued murdering in the name of Islam, and how callous that was of them. I naturally got a number of Muslim and Islamophiles responding to me, and Twitter decided that my reply in the attached screenshot was cause to oust me for “hateful conduct”.
Any "explanation" they've given him since was ambiguous, and it's clear Twitter's staff prefer to avoid the hard issues altogether. Naturally, this is all a disgrace, and they'd do well to reverse their decision if they don't want their platform's image and reputation to get worse than they already are.

Marvel, of course, is making themselves look ridiculous by continuing to publish the Muslim Ms. Marvel book despite such poor sales and the fact it only leads to more monetary losses, and they're not doing any better by employing somebody as revolting as Amanat is with her checkered scarf. I think this is more reason to avoid their current output, so long as they continue to employ those with reprehensible beliefs and personalities.

Matt Murdock is Irish Catholic; you don’t see him apologizing for the Crusades or taking a stand on abortion. Moon Knight is a Jewish American hero twice resurrected and given powers by an Egyptian god; you don’t see him lecturing about Middle Eastern politics. Why expect a teenage girl from New Jersey whose family comes from nowhere near the Middle East and who has made clear her disgust for terrorism to have to take a stand on Jihad every issue? She has taken on issues surrounding the partition of British India, which is a lot more pertinent to the character’s background.
