Youtube stoppar granskning av Fatahs antisemitism

Barry Rubin skriver på sin blogg intressant om media bias mot Israel: The Three Rules of Western Discourse and Why The Media Must Always Blame Israel. En passage uppmärksammar en särskilt intressant händelse:
While some stories are distorted or even at times fabricated, others aren’t mentioned at all. For example, at the early January event marking the anniversary of Fatah, the ruling party in the Palestinian Authority (PA), the official imam–the highest-ranking Muslim official in the PA who was appointed by PA leader Mahmoud Abbas, Muhammad Hussein, cited the Islamic hadith, attributed to Muhammad, that on the day of resurrection all Jews would be murdered.

In the same official Fatah rally, the man who introduced Hussein said: “Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs [i.e., Jews] is a war of religion and faith.”

Yet supposedly we live in an era that is hyper-sensitive to religious slurs. Let the most obscure Protestant minister in America threaten to burn a Koran and it becomes a global headline. But if the highest-ranking Palestinian cleric calls for genocide against the Jews (or the Muslim Brotherhood leader publicly call for the destruction of the United States) it isn’t even reported.

Och när Palestinian Media Watch uppmärksammar detta grova utfall blir de anmälda för "hate speech", och stoppade av Youtube - igen. Palestinian Media Watch skriver om detta
In response to yesterday's PMW video-bulletin which showed the PA Mufti's speech that Muslims' destiny is to kill Jews, YouTube has frozen PMW's account. All PMW videos are working except this one but the account is frozen and PMW cannot upload new videos for the next two weeks.

We have uploaded the video to a different server and it can now again be viewed from PMW's website.

Här nedan klistrar jag in Vimeo-videon med Fatahs religiösa ledare som uppmanar till mord på judar. Fatah anses vara moderata och demokrater och emottar stora mängder bistånd - bland annat dina och mina surt förvärvade slantar:


Anna Ekström har bloggat om händelsen och hittat många antisemitiska videor som finns öppet på Youtube. Hon noterar också att en liknande kampanj förts mot Elder of Ziyon.

Hmmm, Vimeo-videon fungerar inte heller.

Nu fungerar den.
