YouTube's Cowardice Is Anti-Israel, Pro-Intifada (Updated)
We posted the video "We Con The World," a political satire by "The Gaza Flotilla Participants," on June 3. The video (see it below) mocks the allegedly peaceful intentions of the people on the ship Mavi Marmara that was seized by Israel as it was bound for Gaza while refusing to submit to a standard insepection. Thanks to a tip from Illinois Review (IR), we learned that "We Con The World" has been pulled by YouTube in what seems to be yet another case of a corporation bowing to the wishes of Islamofascists who, as IR put it, "are increasingly revealing the cowardice of the corporate world." The video was uploaded to YouTube by a lot of people, and some still seem to be there. However, some show this message: "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner/ Chappell Music, Inc." So, perhaps it's just a copyright issue, but YouTube is notorious for hypocritically picking on one or two videos while leaving dozens of others that have the same copyrighted material. They did it to one of my videos once. (YouTube is owned by Google, which also owns Blogger.) IR posted the video from eyeblast.tv, and we found it also posted at DailyMotion.com. Just to preserve the record, we also copied the video to our hard drive.
