Study: YouTube Failed to Stop Jihadis from Uploading 1,348 Propaganda Videos


An estimated 278 potential jihadi-linked accounts uploaded 1,348 Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) videos on YouTube between March and June this year, the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) revealed in a study published shortly after the research period.

CEP made the discoveries about ISIS videos on YouTube as it produced a research paper to better understand how the organization uses the video-sharing platform to its advantage.

ISIS, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and their affiliates have long been known to use online tools like social media — YouTube, Twitter, Facebook — to disseminate propaganda, conduct recruiting operations, spread Islamic hardliner messages, among other nefarious activities.

The vast majority (83 percent) of terrorists who committed or were charged with ISIS-linked crimes in the United States between March 2014 and August 2016 were exposed to ISIS propaganda videos, CEP noted. Read more at BREITBART.







  1. Don’t fool yourself. YouTube didn’t fail to stop Jihadis. For YouTube, Google, Twitter and Facebook their target are conservatives and pro-Trumpers. Anyone else, they don’t give a hoot.
