YouTube is pulling videos critical of Islam and threatenting to close the acounts of those who post them.

More at Michelle Malkin, Newsbusters, Riding Sun, and The Jawa Report.

I saw this on LGF yesterday. If the owners of UTube want to commit suicide,isn't there a faster way to do it?

Verity - couln't agree more. It looks like YouTube is going along the same Freedom Road as Lenin's Tomb. In other words, anyone can comment/post as long as they agree with its political line.

considering the sheer volume of videos on youtube, my guess is that the approval system is entirely automated.

more complaints = you get banned.
and its just a computer deciding it via some algorithm.

if youtube staff had to sit through all of the complaints on their system manually, they'd be there for the next thousand years... seems automated to me...

so my suggestion is to organise a counter-demo against Jihadist videos.

I am utterly shocked at the extent of the pro-Islamist nature of YouTube.

I am aware this has been debated in recent weeks on right wing websites, but, it really needs to be seen to be believed

Even search for "jihad" produces insanely benign results

Archduke, that's not going to work: we WANT the world to see the appalling stuff that jihadis are proud of.

DhimmiTube declines request to remove terrorist-produced videos

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."
