In the last 24 hours, we've learned that a dangerous pattern has emerged at YouTube. They have censored not just one, but at least two controversial but important videos that reveal the kind of hardcore racism, Islamophobia and Arab-hatred that exists in our Jewish community both among Americans and Israelis, hatred which must be unearthed in order to be countered.Go here to watch one of the censored videos and to send a message to YouTube demanding they restore them.

You tube pulls everything now that could be offensive due to the FCC regulations. Your fight is with the FCC.

So it was reported to youtube from what I can gather and not the FCC.....

 After it was seen by over 400,000 people, YouTube took down Max Blumenthal and Joseph Dana’s video “Feeling the Hate in Jerusalem on Eve of Obama’s Cairo Address” without explanation. They have stonewalled all attempts to find out what happened.

Blumenthal and Dana took a video camera to downtown Jerusalem and asked kids on the street – mainly Americans in Jerusalem over the summer - how they felt about Obama. The answers they heard: mainly hardcore racism enhanced by expletives, homophobia, Islamophobia, Arab hatred, and a lot of ignorance. Youtube also just took down another video of a Palestinian forced to slap himself by the Israeli Border Police. A pattern is emerging. We know this kind of hatred and extremism is a real phenomenon in our Jewish communities. It needs to be unearthed and looked at with the same seriousness we want to see in any community confronting its own extremists. As we seek real peace in the Middle East, the stakes couldn't be higher.

The second video had been up for a year.

 Forty-three seconds: that's the duration of a video clip uploaded to YouTube less than a year ago under the category of "Comedy."

Just so we are clear I did not say it was reported to the FCC ...but due to the FCC recent reafirmation of restrictions You Tube pulls everything reported that could be offensive.

 Sorry if I misunderstood you, but it is odd that videos that show Israelis in a neg light are being pulled.

Some class act douchebags.  Gotta love little miss "I'm a political science major" who proves just how little that means...

Thanks for the link.  Signed.

I watched about 3 seconds of it.  I am not going to listen to people call the President swear words.  It is disrespectful, I don't need that filth going into my mind.  So I don't know what else was on the video.

You-Tube can pull whatever it wants, and it doesn't matter if you like it or not.  They also are under FCC regulations, so sometimes they have to pull things.  Sometimes they don't catch things right away, but when they do, they pull them.
