YouTube accuses Palestinian Media Watch of 'spreading hate,' blocks video
YouTube has blocked a video from 'Palestinian' television that was posted by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) last week as hate speech, and has threatened to close PMW's account
Last week, Palestinian Media Watch released a video-bulletin showing a Palestinian Authority children's TV broadcast of a hate-poem.
A young Palestinian girl recited a poem referring to Jews as "Allah's
enemies, the sons of pigs" who "murdered children," "cut off their
limbs," "raped the women in the city squares" and "defiled Allah's
book." The host responded with enthusiastic applause and "Bravo!"
The following day, YouTube blocked access to PMW's video, defining it as
a "violation of YouTube's policy prohibiting hate speech."
In the past, YouTube has closed PMW's account or frozen PMW's account for exposing PA religious leaders promoting genocide of Jews. This is the first time YouTube has defined a broadcast on PA children's TV as hate speech, and blocked PMW from exposing it.
PMW does not promote hate speech, but exposes it. PMW believes that the
only way to stop the Palestinian Authority's ongoing Islam-based hate
speech and terror glorification is to expose it. By preventing PMW from
exposing PA hatred, YouTube is actively impeding our ability to fight
the PA's hate promotion.
YouTube has even threatened PMW with termination of its YouTube account should PMW continue exposing this hate speech:
may result in the temporary disabling of your ability to post content to
YouTube and/or the permanent termination of your account."
requested that YouTube return the video. PMW has no direct line of
contact with YouTube administrators, other than their standard appeal
option on their website. Therefore, we ask anyone who has contacts at
YouTube to please help encourage YouTube to make our video accessible
For now, we have uploaded the children's TV video to a different server and it can now be viewed here
The real purveyor of hate speech is 'Palestinian
' children's television. But if it cannot be exposed as such, how will it be stopped?
