Last week I received a notice from YouTube that my account was in violation of their community rules. In defending the claim, they said a video I posted to YouTube in April 2016 portrayed violence that was unacceptable and had no place on the platform.
The fact is, the video didn’t include a single ounce of violence. The video was entitled, “ISIS teaches young kids to fight.” The video showed footage of Islamic State militants training children to use high powered machine guns and to spew hate towards infidels. Some of the children were 3 years old. But, in the video, no violence is committed, no prisoners or victims are shown.
As a result of the takedown, we can no longer stream live video for a period of 90 days. This affects my Walk & Talk program in the sense that we must now use another account that is not mine to broadcast. Thus, this “workaround” causes an array of headaches for us, lost revenue, and not to mention my regular viewers can’t find the videos on my YouTube account.
You can imagine my surprise when a DML reader sent me a link to a YouTube video this morning that calls for the destruction of Israel. According to TheTower.org, the Iranian group Hamas launched the video, entitled “Zionists, You Will Perish in Gaza.”
I’ll have to take TheTower’s word for it considering I don’t understand the language in the video, but my eyes don’t lie, and the video is pure propaganda from haters who want Israel destroyed.
I used Google Translate to make sense of what is written under the video. It reads: “Hamas published the song in Hebrew directed to the Zionists in the occupied home, carrying several letters warning of the most important of which went occupation government to attack the Gaza Strip or exposure.”
Who knows who posted the video, who knows who created the video, it could be anyone who hates Israel. Either way, the video features a series of rockets blowing up Israel, Hamas militants blowing themselves up near Israeli soldiers, and Jews being shot in the head. According to TheTower.org, the Jewish characters resemble crude stereotypes common in anti-Semitic media.
Lyrics in the video include threats, such as, “We will eat you, Zionists, without salt,” and “Ooooh… Zionist, a rocket will get you where you live.”
The video has been watched more than 10,000 times this week. Ironic and sad, how YouTube has missed this video.
I recall a segment from when I was hosting my TV show on Newsmax last year. I interviewed a Jewish reporter who had run an experiment on Facebook. He created two Facebook accounts: one was anti-Israel; one was anti-Palestine.
He launched the same hateful speech on both accounts at the same time. He wrote “Death to Israel” on the anti-Israel page and “Death to Palestine” on the anti-Palestine page. He then used another account to report both pages to Facebook. Ironically, and sadly, Facebook shut down the anti-Palestine page, but kept the anti-Israel page in tact.
I never confirmed the reporter’s story with Facebook, but something tells me I would have received no reply. Either way, I know the reporter and he’s never proven to be a proponent of “fake news.” Point is, these social media outlets have very selective rules that only apply when and where they want them to apply.
