Anti-Sharia Video Pulled From YouTube Due To 'Hate Speech' Rules
by Alex Pfeiffer
A video produced by CounterJihad critical of the Muslim Brotherhood, jihad and sharia law was removed from YouTube Tuesday due to the company's "hate speech" regulations.
The video — titled "Killing for a Cause: Sharia Law & Civilization Jihad" — was uploaded to YouTube last Thursday.
"I am stunned that the policy that YouTube developed for the express purpose of fighting Islamic State propaganda is now being used to silence critics of radical jihad," Jim Hanson, executive vice president of the Center for Security Policy said Wednesday.
Hanson added, "Instead of counteracting radical propaganda online, these policies are now being used to silence the very speech that YouTube said it wanted — speech that challenges ISIS."
