The Australian government has abruptly dropped its efforts to force Elon Musk’s X to remove footage from April of an Islamist violently attacking a Christian Bishop.

As we previously highlighted, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and his government went to war with Musk, after the X owner refused demands to remove all copies of a video of Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel being stabbed during a live streamed mass.

Australia’s so called ‘eSafety Commissioner’ Julie Inman-Grant, an unelected official, ordered X to remove footage of the attack under the Online Safety Act, passed in 2021, which empowers the eSafety department to demand the removal of so-called ‘class 1 material’.

In response, Musk urged that “no president, prime minister or judge has authority over all of Earth! This platform adheres to the laws of countries in those countries, but it would be improper to extend one country’s rulings to other countries. If [Albanese wants] to censor things in other countries, he should bring a legal action to bear in those countries.”
