Skip to comments.YouTube: A terrorist's dissemination and recruiting tool
Posted on 11/13/2009 11:36:05 AM PST by StarCMC
In the last post I put up, I showed you how the terrorists use the videos that they post at YouTube. Now I'd like to show you what some of those videos are about. I was surfing around terrorist websites and found this gem. The site is Ansar al-Mujahideen, which is a website for the Mujahideen terrorists (as you might suspect from their name.) Here are some screen caps of the page, with an anonymized link. This video is produced by As-Sahab, the media wing of Al Qaeda. Their logo is plainly visible in the lower right corner of the screen.
Why don’t you go after the terrorists and quit beating up on Youtube?
These people are so unlike us. They have no respect for life and their skills at propaganda are seriously lacking. How dare they show images of wounded even as they promote the indiscriminate slaughtering of civilians?
Their rhetoric is targeted toward the uneducated imbeciles that embrace “Jihad” because their own leaders have relegated them to miserable lives of squalor.
We are obliged to our children and theirs to deal with this vileness. Washington is too weak. They have lost touch with the concerns of their real employers.
I am so very disturbed at this garbage. You Tube seems to have no sense of what is proper in a civilized Society.

If you're not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.
There are folks doing that too (see the Jawa Report here: http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/) but my focus is on how YouTube helps the terrorists. They ask for people to flag offensive (meaning against the posted Terms of Service) videos and then ignore the flags. The terrorists are using YouTube, a U.S. company, to distribute their propaganda and recruiting videos for free in order to gain more support for their cause - which I know you know is killing our soldiers and citizens. It’s against executive orders to give help to terrorist organizations — even if they are free. YouTube has an obligation to better police the people who are using it.
There is a video that has photos of one of our downed pilot’s body that’s been up for a very long time, and been flagged many, many times. If YouTube’s reason for leaving it up had anything to do with intelligence gathering (as some have suggested) it would be a very simple thing to copy the video, send it to the FBI, CIA, whatever, and then remove it from public view.
Eh - I love humblegunner. One of the Texas crew that makes me laugh. :-)
HA! Rhetorical question of the ages.
They send crap through the postal system too.
Where is your outrage?
Maybe that can be your job! Are ya in?
I flagged it.. ‘Inciting Hate and Violence” against “Religion” and “Is a terrorist recruitment tool.”.
It’ll be interesting to see if it goes down.

Look who is a friend of this YouTube jihadist.. jihadnow2 (Hasan).
Oh yeah - and believe me, you can spend a LOT of time looking through that stuff. Crazy.
I gave up tilting at windmills long ago.
I like Youtube, I find it to be an awesome free service.
Sure there are some ratbags that use it. Ratbags also buy groceries, ride the bus and mail letters.
This is not a reason to attack the stores, the transport systems or the mail.
In this particular case, I disagree. FRegards.
Star: Good job once again. Thanks for doing this and thanks for the ping.
Rosie: heads up here gal.
I have flagged videos like that and they still have them on youtube. Youtube does not take these vids down. But they do take down Christian vids and they ban Christians that they find offensive. I have seen it done many times.
youtube is falling apart people. There is a censorship war going on. Ever since a guy who posted Michael Savage’s clips was banned a week or two ago the flagging war and bannings have begun. Glenn Becks daily clips is gone off youtube, Rev. Manning is done with youtube, ConservativeNation is gone and others being banned.
And yet these terrorist clips remain.
Censorship is in full force.

None of these analogies work.
A jihadi at a grocery store is recruiting some eggplant and tahini, not signing up religious zealots for a bombing mission.
If a terrorist did get up in my grocery store and give speeches encouraging other shoppers to shove bombs up their asses and head to the nearest federal building . . you might have an analogy.
Youtube is allowing terrorists to recruit for violent criminal acts. It’s specific. It is clear. It sucks.
