Berlin, Germany (AHN) - The Central Council of Jews in Germany filed a suit at a Hamburg court against Google and YouTube over anti-Semitic videos. The videos in dispute include a photo of former Central Council of Jews head Paul Spiegel ablaze with a swastika in the background.
The video was on YouTube's site for months. The council said the video incites racial hatred and discrimination.
YouTube is not a stranger to controversies. Right-wing extremist messages and videos have been discovered in 2006, while the Nazi propaganda film "Jud Suss" was downloaded on the site in 2007 despite the presence of new filtering software.
Stephen Kramer, general secretary of the council, told Spiegel online, "The radical right-wing scene is using YouTube massively, as a platform. In defense, Google Germany's spokesman Kay Oberbeck said YouTube has self-policing features that allows site members to complain about an offending video with the click of a mouse, and that material could no longer be reposted on the site in the future.
Meanwhile, the Netherlands Islamic Federation asked a court in The Hague to come up with a board of censors to review a film about the Islam religion with the aim of banning it for attacking their faith. Right-wing extremist Geert Wilders plans to exhibit the movie despite growing complaints from different groups....
Muslim fascists and Left dhimmi fascists have preempted Wilders' showing so far of his short film Fitna. The shameful lies keep on coming. A democrat in our midst is slandered as a neo-Nazi, and not a blink from our intelligentsia. Good Lord.
So, it will soon be time for us to demonstrate our disgust of the intelligentsia and our support of Wilders and our Modernity and its basic democratic foundation. I'm prepared to endure the crap of Left fascists calling me a fascist. I'll stand in front of a government sponsored Dutch site and protest till I burst. Metaphorically, I hope. And I hope to see you there when the time comes. No lawsuits, it's time to take to the streets in defence of democracy.
