Banned on YouTube

By Michelle Malkin • October 4, 2006 11:28 AM

Back in February, you may remember, I cobbled together a little mini-movie called “First, They Came” inspired by the Mohammed Cartoon riots. It’s a simple slideshow highlighting the victims of Islamic violence over the years. We posted it at YouTube a while ago. No problems. Until last week, when I received this e-mail:


I asked YouTube to inform me of the exact nature of the “inappropriateness” of the video. But no response. The banning of my innocuous video is not an isolated incident. Anti-jihad YouTube users have reported having their videos yanked and accounts suspended, including Crusader18. Another YT user, Intelsum, writes:

It has come to my attention that Jihadis organized a campaign against us to have our videos removed by You Tube. Some people’s accounts have even been terminated. I don’t know exactly how the You Tube suspension system works, but it looks like a video will be removed if it gets a certain number of complaints (which may be accepted without investigation), and an account gets closed when the third video is removed. One of my videos was recently removed for “inappropriate content.” The video, ‘It’s In The Koran’ could be viewed at, second screen (alternative video source). This video contains no sexually explicit content and could only be offensive to Muslims who reject any notion of criticism. At the same time, many al-Qaeda propaganda videos, Nazi videos, etc. are posted on You Tube.

Strangely, my conservative YouTube group (now nearly 1,000 members strong) has also now been “flagged” for containing “content that is inappropriate for some users.”

Yeah, inappropriate for members of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage.

Some users are proposing a YT boycott. But I think the better approach is to stay and fight–and persuade DhimmiTube to rethink its policies. Will any criticism of jihad qualify as “hate” under its terms of use guidelines? Why did the banning of anti-jihad videos only start now–in the wake of YouTube’s embarrassment over jihad propaganda videos exploding on its site as reported by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin earlier this month? - More HERE


Some examples of videos which YouTube have removed through it's censorship and pro-active support for terrorism, anti-Semitism and hatred for the west - These examples are telling of YouTube/Google's policy:

The Jews Took No One's Land
Islam: The new Fascism threatening the West
Peace in middle east- Stop the child abuse
The Palestinian genocide deception

Google says most videos sponsored by terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda don't violate its community guidelines


By Heather Havenstein

YouTube has refused a request from US Sen. Joe Lieberman (ID-Conn.) to remove all videos sponsored by terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda, contending that most of them don't violate its community guidelines.

Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Monday called on the Google Inc subsidiary to remove video content produced by terrorist organizations that showed assassinations, deaths of US soldiers and civilians, weapons training, "incendiary" speeches and other material intended to "encourage violence against the West."

"Islamist terrorist organizations use YouTube to disseminate their propaganda, enlist followers, and provide weapons training," Lieberman said in a letter to Google CEO Eric Schmidt. "YouTube also, unwittingly, permits Islamist terrorist groups to maintain an active, pervasive, and amplified voice, despite military setbacks or successful operations by the law enforcement and intelligence communities."

In the letter, Lieberman noted that while YouTube posts community guidelines for its users, it does not appear that the company follows the guidelines. For example, he noted that despite rules that prohibit gratuitous violence on the site, there are videos of Al-Qaeda attacks on US forces in which some soldiers are killed or injured.

When contacted, Google pointed to a YouTube blog post that said the company has removed some of the videos cited by Lieberman, primarily because they depicted gratuitous violence, advocated violence or used hate speech. However, the post also noted that most of the videos in question remain on the site "because they do not violate our community guidelines."

"Hundreds of thousands of videos are uploaded to YouTube every day," the YouTube blog post said. "Because it is not possible to pre-screen this much content, we have developed an innovative and reliable community policing system that involves our users in helping us enforce YouTube's standards. Millions of users report potential violations of our community guidelines."

YouTube went on to say that it encourages free speech and defends the right of its users to express unpopular points of view.

That is an outright lie from YouTube which consistently removes clips which are critical of terrorism, radical islam and clips in defense of the west, anti-Jihad, Jews and Israel - DhimmiTube is a fitting description.

"We believe that YouTube is a richer and more relevant platform for users precisely because it hosts a diverse range of views, and rather than stifle debate we allow our users to view all acceptable content and make up their own minds," the company said. "Of course, users are always free to express their disagreement with a particular video on the site, by leaving comments or their own response video. That debate is healthy."

Except when YouTube decides what can be censored and not be censored regardless if the content violates their rules, YouTube's decisions are political, not ethical, violence and beheadings are fine with YouTube's political guidelines but any criticism of such and what falls under their political guidelines are not and is systematically removed by YouTube.

Mark Hopkins, a blogger for Mashable, noted that YouTube has been "capricious and arbitrary" in deciding what content promotes hate speech or violence and should be removed. For example, he pointed out that YouTube took down a video showing victims of a Muslim terrorist attack, but allowed videos of homeless people who were paid to beat each other. A video of clothed females in Hong Kong with derogatory music towards women being played in the background was removed, while a video of a strip tease with nudity was allowed to remain on the site, he noted.

"[Lieberman's] primary concerns weren't the usual suspects when you think of the things that American politicians find objectionable (rap music, graphic portrayals of violence, Grand Theft Auto and Janet Jackson's nipple)," Hopkins noted.

Instead Lieberman brought up a topic that YouTube should be called on -- allowing itself to be a participant in the dissemination of propaganda videos produced by Islamic terrorist organizations, Hopkins said. "If YouTube can spend millions enforcing DMCA and piracy concerns, they can take a few minutes and respond to valid citizen complaints against usage of the system to promote terrorist organizations," he added.

Not likely, YouTube apparently wish to continue to be the number organ promoting islamic terrorism, hatred of the west, antisemitism and racism, gratious violence, islamic terrorist organisations promoting jihad and the murder of none muslims.

If you post verses from the Quran or the Hadith, or quotes by famous Muslims, Youtube will close your account and delete your comments. However, if you use foul language in response to the aforementioned verses and quotes, Youtube will neither close your account nor remove your comments.

To anonymous: The case which has been shown is irrelevant to the whole issue and only shows one YouTube' user called 'Purplehorny' and some rather inflaming remarks by that particular user - However those remarks are nowhere near the hatred, racism and extremism which are shown by the islamists and islamic extremists.

The core issue is the censorship which YouTube/Google show for the day removing material critical of islam, terrorism, radicalism and religious extremism - Cyberjihadis are acting like barking watchdogs and flagging everything they deem to be 'offensive' about islam and in favor of Jews and Israel.
