Following Palestinian Media Watch’s release of a video on Thursday in which a Palestinian girl read a poem on official PA TV calling for “war that will smash the oppressor and destroy the Zionist’s soul,” YouTube “terminated” PMW’s account for violating their “terms of service,” which includes hate speech.
The terminated account, https://www.youtube.com/user/palwatch/, contains nearly all of PMW’s videos.
The photo above is a screenshot from the video that caused the termination.
Supporters of freedom and Israel in particular are outraged that YouTube has closed PMW’s account, which is seen as a blow to the war against Palestinian terror.
PMW’s documentation on PMW’s YouTube account shows the PA’s and Fatah leaders’ support and promotion of the terror.
PMW’s exposure of Palestinian incitement and hate speech is recognized and used by parliaments and governments around the world.
On Friday, a 25-minute debate took place in Swedish Parliament in which the PA’s support for the current terror was discussed, and the proof was based entirely on PMW documentation – most of which is no longer accessible on PMW’s YouTube account.
PMW is now urging YouTube to immediately reinstate PMW’s account and all PMW videos, and is calling to our subscribers to help put pressure on Google and YouTube by clicking the “Send feedback” link at the bottom of YouTube’s homepage.
