  • YouTube's terror TV

    Youtube needs to crack down much harder on vid eos that promote violent jihad. While the Web site has made some efforts to remove videos that violate its ban on terror promotion, thousands remain. Indeed, videos that glorify and promote terrorism continue to flood the site; YouTube needs to find a way more consistent and sustained approach, or find itself sucked into an endless game of "whack-a-mole." In October, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Queens-Brooklyn) wrote YouTube executives asking them to remove all material featuring Anwar al-Awlaki -- the American-Yemeni cleric fingered as the ideological inspiration of Faisal Shahzad, the would-be Times...
  • Facebook's Arab Problem? Network Blocks 'Palestinian' and 'Arab' From Profiles

    Last week, Facebook accidentally deleted Sarah Palin's rant at/plea to Muslims (depending on your side of the fence) to oppose the construction of the so-called Ground Zero Mosque. On Sunday, a group called The Palestinian Refugee ResearchNet tried to make a Facebook fan page for its supporters, but wasn't allowed because a glitch in the system blocked the world "Palestinian" from page titles. (The conspiracy theorists out there can rest their tin-foil-bedecked heads, because "Palestine" made it through without a problem, and Facebook has corrected the bizarre bug.)

    Nope. Not even kidding at all. I am NOT an engineer - I don't know if the information in the video would really work or not, but that's beside the point. This video has been on YouTube since July 13th. It has been flagged, and yet it remains on YouTube's servers. Here are some screencaps: Obviously I am not posting screencaps of schematics or materials needed. Now I can understand how videos like these are uploaded to YouTube.

    We came back from being "on strike" and began this thread to test the waters at YouTube back on March 15th, and we have met with a fair amount of success!† I've been asked a couple of times how we've done, and the folks that work behind the scenes have gone to some lengths to answer that question for us -- not too shabby in the least! By the end of September we had 932 users suspended and 41,764 videos downed We went on strike 10/30/09 which meant that we did NOT report activity totals for the month of...

    The members of YouTube Smackdown, Quoth the Raven, FreeRepublic, the Jawa Report, Stable of the Zionist Hores and many others have been virtually screaming for years about the hirabist threat that is aided and abetted by YouTube hosting terrorist videos for free on U.S. servers. (Hint: every one of those words in the previous sentence is a link to a post about YouTube's free internet services for terrorists.) Yesterday at MEMRI, Steven Stalinzky posted a spot on piece titled "YouTube Ė The Internet's Primary and Rapidly Expanding Jihadi Base: Part II."
