YouTube Censors Anti-Jihadist News Source – Vlad TepesBlog


If you follow Counterjihad writers or blogs you probably are aware of the Vlad Tepes blog. (As an aside named for Vlad the Impaler who became the model for the Dracula legends but historically brutally resisted the brutality of Muslim Ottomans [Turkey] conquest and Islamization of Europe. What made Vlad notorious is he distributed brutality for Muslim brutality.)

 

Vlad the Impaler – historical portrait

 

The Vlad Tepes blog tends to focus on the actions of Islam (often reported as radical Islam) in Europe, but the blog occasionally takes a look elsewhere. Since the major Social Media platforms have been running Anti-Conservative/Anti-Counterjihad campaigns, the Vlad Tepes blog has become one of their targets by censoring Free Speech.

 

Counterjihadist Paul Sutliff has posted about Youtube censorship of the Vlad Tepes blog with screenshot examples and BitTube links to evaluate for yourself if the Vlad Tepes blog deserves censorship.

YouTube Censors Anti-Jihadist News Source – Vlad TepesBlog

Youtube vs VladTepesBlog

 

In the beginning of February a coordinated reporting campaign against the YouTube channel of Vlad TepesBlog began. Simple examination of the filed complaints reveals the idiocy of the reporting. Vlad TepesBlog shared a few of the hundreds of their videos that were suddenly reported within a week.  The vast majority of what was on Vlad TepesBlog’s YouTube channel were news reports from foreign countries subtitled into English. Below are two examples of YouTube’s response to the reporting sent to Vlad TepesBlog.

Is Google Politicizing viewership and subscriber numbers?

Vlad TepesBlog’s YouTube Channel had over 30,000 subscribers.  Their videos were not monetized as the goal was to get the truth out and not have it be thought that income would sway what was shared. One of Vlad Tepes Blog’s subscribers wrote to them that they were under attack by Google, because his subscription count was not increasing and appeared frozen. It became a talking point for months when the number was approximately 24,xxx for a few weeks. It then shot up to 30,000 within 6 weeks. Having posted several hundred videos Vlad TepesBlog had other concerns that YouTube was adjusting the viewership statistics.

 

Tested

Vlad TepesBlog works with Gates of Vienna sometimes. In this case he embedded his videos on the Gates of Vienna with YouTube videos averaging a daily viewership at YouTube of between 600 to 1600 views per day. Sometimes they might get as high as 3,000 to 4,000. This encouraged further curiosity at statistical manipulation by YouTube/Google. So Vlad TepesBlog did some work with Freezoxee.com a place he had ZERO subscribers, unlike YouTube where he had accumulated 30,000+. So the only people who saw the video were people who saw the social media ties to the site.

 

There were 15,000 to 30,000 views which over a several days. Vlad TepesBlog states that this count far exceeded the amount of viewers YouTube was reporting for the hundreds of videos on his channel over the same period time.

 

The frozen subscription count plus the low viewership counts made Vlad wonder if they are concerned about his actual influence. Influence? Yes! When a channel gets a lot of attention YouTube promotes it in various ways. Even individual videos get promoted due to high viewership. So was the attempt purposeful to limit their influence hence stopping videos from going viral?

 

Congressional leadership prior to the Democratic takeover of the House was pursuing a look into flagrant First amendment violations of these Social Media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for directly limiting the influence of persons who are Conservative and/or Anti-Jihadists.

 

Sadly, the mass reporting of VladTepesBlog and the forced closure of its channel show a huge flaw in the security measures of YouTube, and other Social Media platforms. That being the evident lack of

 

Due Process.

Due Process is what protects a person from false accusations and usually ferrets outs liars in a timely fashion. YouTube accepted complaints that videos with no violence or sexual themes should now be labeled and require age verification to view adult content. This implies that your daily news feed according to YouTube should be labeled Adult Content. This means no comments can be seen or written.

 

The worst problem here is that NO HUMAN CONTACT is possible! You can only appeal a decision with a form response that may or may not be read by a human.

 

Important Questions for YouTube

Are bots all that reviews complaints? Are there security measures in place to address mass reporting?  What is the process of review for an actual complaint before a label of Adult Content is applied? What happens if a reviewer shows bias or incompetence when reviewing content?

 

YouTube Does NOT CONSISTENTLY close Hate Channels

Social Media giants seem set on controlling messages to their platform. YouTube has been caught hosting content that promotes Anti-Semitism under the guise that it is Islamic. The Middle East Media Research Institute has caught several videos on YouTube and noted the names of the persons and the organizations posting Anti-Semitic content under these circumstances. Persons with platforms that have been exposed by MEMRI include Zafar Bangash, who leads the Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought (ICIT). ICIT has a YouTube Channel called the ICIT Digital Library.

Perhaps YouTube thinks this is acceptable because this channel only has 4,562 subscribers?

 

MEMRI also exposed Sheikh Omar Baloch. His promotion of Islamic Relief should be enough of a concern to remove his YouTube Channel. The Middle East Forum’s extensive expose of Islamic Relief’s connections to known terror entities and persons is more than enough to post a flagged warning of adult content! But as you can see Sheikh Omar Baloch’s channel still exists.

There are far too many examples of this non-censorship of channels sponsored by persons connected to Anti-Semitism and Jihadi terrorism.

 

You have to ask how Google aka YouTube finds reason to justify keeping content that is connected to Anti-Semitism and terrorism, AND how are news feeds subtitled into English deemed offensive at all!

 

Yet YouTube claims it catches most of the hate and terror videos. It hosted Islamic State videos that the government had to request be taken down! Yet their own content reviewers seem to target persons who have influence and are sharing actual News coverage simply because the content reveals unpopular truths?

 

This past December YouTube made the news after closing 1.67 million channels and all of the 50.2 million videos associated with them. According to Reuters, YouTube claimed, “Nearly 80 percent of the channel takedowns [were] related to spam uploads. About 13 percent concerned nudity, and 4.5 percent child safety.”

 

Final Thoughts

Are we to believe news is now to be counted in the same category as spam, nudity, and child safety issues? But Anti-Semitic speech is protected if it is Muslim?

 

Let’s not forget the monetary value of good will. It doesn’t matter that Vlad TepesBlog was not asking for income. What matters was his influence grew because he was respected. That respect earned him a high subscription rate and a total viewership of all 1600+ videos in the millions. Vlad TepesBlog considers the action of closing their channel a fraud. The work portrayed was not porn, it was not a safety concern, it did not violate community standards, so the shutdown of his channel was an act of fraud.

 

While a formal apology and restoration of all the work of Vlad TepesBlog would be considered a good business strategy for YouTube, versus a lawsuit for alleging that news which was subtitled needed an Adult content rating.

 

Vlad TepesBlog now posts their work at http://Bit.Tube. They ask that you sign up and subscribe to their Channel here. Vlad TepesBlog continues to not ask for any monetary assistance. They only want you to have the truth and subscribing to their work helps them to get the word out!

Intro to Geller’s ‘Islamic Jew-Hatred – a religious mandate’


Intro by John R. Houk, Editor

Posted July 26, 2018

By Pamela Geller

Geller should have entitled this piece “Islamic Jew-Hatred – a central Islamic tenet.” The premise is Islam has a key tenet encoded in its revered writings – Quran, Hadith and Sira – of JEW-HATRED.

 

Muslim apologists at this point typically pooh-pooh this accusation as false among the majority of Muslims practicing “moderate” Islam. OR something like, “the accusation takes out of context the message behind the revered text.”

 

Friends these apologists are spreading a load of propaganda either by directly lying and/or unwittingly promoting the apologist line of thinking in deluded ignorance.

 

Geller utilizes MEMRI video and report translations that demonstrates that so-called moderate Muslims spew Jew-Hatred based on their revered writings as much as radical Muslims do.

 

Geller’s report is actually short, but the links to MEMRI proof of inherent Jew-Hatred is lengthy. I urge you to bookmark this cross post or Geller’s original post to go back as you have time to watch Muslim – Imams, Clerics, Mullahs, Ayatollahs or whatever revered title used – validate Jew-Hatred preaching from their revered writings.

Islamic Jew-Hatred – a religious mandate

 

Mundhir Abdallah in Copenhagen: Jew-Hatred Quote

Geller Report

 

Thanks to MEMRI for this compilation:

 

ANTISEMITIC HADITH: ‘THE PROPHECY OF THE ROCK AND THE TREE’ – MEMRI CLIPS AND REPORTS

 

MEMRI TV recently translated and released excerpts from a Friday sermon delivered on December 15, 2017 by Imam Mohamed Tatai, formerly imam of the Mosquée Ennour in Toulouse and currently imam of the new Grand Mosque of Toulouse, in which he cited an antisemitic hadith.[1]

 

Over the years MEMRI TV has translated many sermons citing this hadith. The hadith, “The Prophecy of the Rock and the Tree,” appears in the Muslim [d. 875 CE], the Al-Tirmidhi [d. 892 CE], and the Ibn Hanbal [d. 855 CE] compilations of hadiths,[2] and a shorter version of the hadith appears in the Bukhari [d. 870 CE] compilation.

 

The longer version states that on Judgment Day, the Muslims will fight the Jews, and the Jews will hide behind rocks and trees. Then the rocks and the trees will speak, calling upon the Muslims: “Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill them.” The hadith goes on to say that all trees will act this way, except for one tree – the gharqad tree, which is therefore defined as “one of the trees of the Jews.”[3]

 

Various imams have claimed that Israel, being aware of the Jews’ fate on Judgment Day, plants many gharqad trees as protection,[4] One even suggested that this can be viewed on Google Earth.[5]

 

DONATE

 

In a July 12, 2018 press release, the Great Mosque of Paris called it “a hadith reported by a traditionalist author (Abu Horaira) who was himself rejected by Umayyad Muslim dynasty” and added: “There is no reason for this hadith to have been exhumed from oblivion.”[6] This claim is incorrect, as can be seen in the list below of references to the hadith translated by MEMRI in sermons and speeches over the years. Furthermore, not only does Hamas cite this hadith in its charter,[7]but it also appears in official statements of Salafi-jihadi organizations such as Al-Qaeda. Osama bin Laden cited it, for example, in a February 2003 sermon marking ‘Eid Al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice).[8]

Article In Egyptian Government Daily: Trump’s … About Jerusalem Is … Phase In … Of ‘The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion’


 

Here is an example of classic Muslim Jew-Hatred. This time it emanates from a Daily newspaper in Egypt – Egyptian government daily Al-Yawm Al-Sabi’.

 

MEMRI’s English translated version simply drools with Jew-Hatred. The theme of lies and derision is based on the long debunked as fictional forgery is The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

 

The Egyptian government daily use The Protocols as a racist Antisemitic reason that President Trump intends to the move the U.S. Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to the city that Israel calls its Capital – Jerusalem.

 

This is a great follow-up to the SlantRight 2.0 post about Antisemitism: “Shameful Social Media Jew-Hatred”.

 

And the Palestine Media Watch (PMW) has a great post on how Islamic terrorists with in the Palestine Authority (PA), Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon use The Protocols to incite the murder of Jews in Israel.

Article In Egyptian Government Daily: Trump’s Announcement About Jerusalem Is Another Phase In The Implementation Of ‘The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion’

 

Special Dispatch No. 7333

February 14, 2018

MEMRI

 

On December 11, 2017, the Egyptian government daily Al-Yawm Al-Sabi’ published an article by Hashem Al-Fakharani titled “From the ‘[Arab] Spring Plots’ to ‘the Buying of the White House’ – The Protocols of the Elders of Zion Are Realizing Their Goals after 100 Years …” In this article, Al-Fakharani claimed that President Donald Trump’s announcement that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel is the result of pressure by the Jewish lobby, and is another phase in the implementation of the Jewish-Zionist plot to take over the world set out in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. He wrote that, as part of the implementation of this plot, the Jews also extorted the Balfour Declaration from Britain and concocted schemes to destroy Arab countries and ignited the flame of “The Arab Spring” within them, which undermined their stability.

 

The article in the Egyptian daily; the image shows President Trump next to the cover of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion (Al-Yawm Al-Sabi’, Egypt, December 11, 2017)

 

The following are translated excerpts from the article:[1]

 

“Through diligent activity, in accordance with its dubious agenda, the occupation state has cautiously spun its web. For many decades, Israel replaced [its] sponsors in the region in order to [create] chaos-inducing scenarios. First, it extorted the Balfour Declaration from Britain during the Colonial period, then it replaced [the British sponsorship] with the patronage of the U.S., and finally it led [the U.S. to] the obscene announcement made by President Donald Trump, in which he declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and to his decision to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city [Jerusalem].

 

“The unilateral American recognition [of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital], which ignored the warnings of the international community about its implications, was not sudden. Rather, it was part of the Zionist plot that the Jews of Europe started to weave, like a spider’s web, in the year 1901, by means of the document The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which includes 24 protocols. [These protocols comprise a plan] to take over the world by appointing [the Jews’] henchmen to sensitive positions among decision-makers, and by establishing lobby groups – [collectively] known as the Zionist lobby – that tyrannically control the fates of the nations.

 

“The vile Protocols were written by an agent for the political secret police in Russia, the Russian Matvei Golovinski. He received the inspiration to write them from the book Dialogue in Hell between Machiavelli and Montesquieu, by the [French] author Maurice Joly…

 

“The rabbinic council of the Jews developed the protocols with the goal of destroying the Christian hegemony in the world. Thus, after the [First Zionist] Congress – which took place in Basel, Switzerland, and was organized in 1897 by Theodor Herzl, the leader of the Zionist movement – the group of European rabbis amended the Protocols with the objective of establishing a national homeland for the Jews in Palestine.

 

“Following the Balfour Declaration, in which Palestine was given by those who did not own it [i.e. the British] to those who had no right to it [i.e. the Jews], schemes were concocted to destroy the peoples and armies that opposed the establishment of a state for the Jews in Palestine, and specifically the Arab countries that opposed the establishment of this state.

 

“An examination of the Seventh Protocol in The Protocols [of the Elders of Zion] reveals that it stresses the need to wear down every country that stands in the way of those plans, by creating internal crises that lead to wars, and by causing world wars. In order to actualize these protocols, Israel worked diligently to ignite the flames of the so-called Arab Spring, which undermined the [Arab] peoples in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and Libya. By means of this [Seventh] Protocol, Israel succeeded in weakening the capabilities of these countries’ armies, while the Egyptian army managed to stand firm against this diabolical plot.

 

“Following the revolution that broke out in March 2011, Syria, which is one of the countries in conflict with Israel, was worn down by the war between the Syrian army and terror organizations such as ISIS, Jabhat Al-Nusra, and Al-Qaeda. The same applies to Libya, Iraq, and Yemen. After about seven years of “Arab Spring” – which drove out [the population of] Syria, destroyed Libya, and wiped out Yemen – and more than 100 years after [publication of] The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the Zionist lobby put pressure on the American president to make the perverted decision [about Jerusalem], which has been defined as Balfour Declaration II.”
