Free Speech PMW Youtube


Highlighting incitement to inform people about it, is not purposefully disseminating it for promotion.

This has happened to Itamar Markus before.

Brian @Israellycool: As of just this moment, it seems that the main PMW channel (here) has been re-instated. The big question for Google now is how does this kind of thing happen and what steps will they put in place to stop it happening again?

Dear PMW subscribers,

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 contains nearly all of PMW’s videos.

We urge anyone with contacts at Google or YouTube to contact them and request that PMW’s account be reinstated. Others can send a message to YouTube by clicking the “Send feedback” link at the bottom of YouTube’s homepage.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) had its YouTube account removed on Sunday, March 6, after the video site said it had violated terms of service.

PMW, which monitors and exposes incitement in Palestinian media, last posted a video to YouTube on Thursday. The video showed a Palestinian girl reading a poem on official Palestinian Authority television calling for a “war that will smash the oppressor and destroy the Zionist soul.”

According to PMW, YouTube entirely shut down the group’s primary account. A check of the portal on Sunday night, March 6, showed that it was gone, with text announcing: “This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.”

 According to Itamar Marcus, PMW’s founder and director, YouTube has removed PMW material in the past on the grounds that it constituted hateful content.
