WASHINGTON, DC — The following is a statement from Madihha Ahussain, Muslim Advocates’ special counsel for anti-Muslim bigotry, in response to YouTube’s announcement of a new policy intended to rid the platform of its bigoted and supremacist content:

“YouTube is one of the most popular and influential media platforms in the world. What happens on YouTube matters, which is why we have raised concerns about hateful content on their platform for over five years. Despite clear policies against hate speech and harassment, YouTube is regularly used to spread dangerous, anti-Muslim content to countless people around the world.

We are encouraged by today’s announcement that YouTube is taking steps to remove hateful content and actors from its platform. However, a critical question remains: how will the company enforce this new policy—especially against popular and profitable YouTubers who espouse anti-Muslim bigotry?

As we found in our 2018 report Running on Hate, much of the anti-Muslim hate in public life stems from a bigoted conspiracy theory that Islam is not a religion, but a violent political ideology, and that American Muslims are inherently foreign, anti-American, supportive of acts of terror and wish to replace the Constitution with Sharia law.

It’s our understanding that YouTube is committed to cracking down on content that promotes discriminatory theories against a protected class. This would require YouTube to remove content from all anti-Muslim figures and groups on the platform who promote these false and dangerous conspiracies or call to ban, surveil or commit violence against Muslims.

For too long, hate speech and harassment have flourished on YouTube despite clear policies against them. Given the wide reach of YouTube, the company has a responsibility to ensure that it removes violating content on its platform that often comes from toxic sites like Gab and 8chan. The company’s new policy could go a long way towards shutting off this pipeline, but only if enforced appropriately.”

Muslim Advocates is a national civil rights organization working in the courts, in the halls of power and in communities to halt bigotry in its tracks. We ensure that American Muslims have a seat at the table with expert representation so that all Americans may live free from hate and discrimination.

  1. Mossad’s credo: ‘By way of deception, we will do war’.

    The twelve, non-Gentile tribes were encouraged to cheat each other across tribal lines. One might think this would cause a lot of animus, but one would d be wrong. They did this to find what worked. If it worked on each other then it would certainly work on the Gentile who never had time to contemplate such malevolence. The Gentiles, since their ancient beginnings, have always been honest, hard-working souls. They had s lot to contend with just keeping ahead of mother nature.

    In the early 70’s CE, a non-Gentile, flavius josephus, from Jerusalem, came to Rome as an infiltrator (spy). He wrote back to his people in a secret language, I believe it was Aramaic, and told them the natives were ‘childlike in their innocence’. It was like saying, “Come on down, it’s like taking candy from a baby”. That opened the door to a whole new slave collecting opportunity that lasted into the present. And, as a salting of that wound, the non-Gentile church of Christianity was a facilitator of the non-Gentile slavery trade. In one excursion into Gaul, over three-thousand blond-hair, blue-eyed children were kidnapped and their parents butchered (the talmud says they should be at least three-years and one-day old to be taken). The pope at that time told them ‘go for it. just don’t take Christians’.

  2. I began researching the reasons there can never be World Peace nearly five decades ago, and have concluded it is a very evil people in this world that is the cause. These people tell in their old testament that everyone of them had slaves. The designated father of this tribe had a dark-skin slave woman named Hagar whom he raped and impregnated. They tell these stories so matter-of-factly that you can see they had zero compassion or humanity for our ancestors or. Nor us. It is who they are.

    In their country they brag that they have the highest number of PhD’s in the world, per capita. They were, and likely are, still slavers. See their huge wall that grows like a cancer? They say the kidnappings in the world are growing commensurately with that wall. If they are anything at all . . . they are traditionalists.

  3. Everyone must understand that what the Muslims are dealing with is actually a Gentile issue that affects “all” non-jews detrimentally. When the IOF (israeli offensive forces) soldier puts his cross hairs on a Palestinian, he is seeing – not an Arab – but simply a Gentile (a non-jew). Over there they kill and send to the refugee camps (ghettos) everybody, regardless of religious affiliations . . . including Christians.

    They created the dichotomy of two peoples in this world:
    Their talmud tells them they are god’s chosen people and that this god looks after them and has a heaven for them so that their souls can go there for a big, eternal jamboree when they’re all done here. The other people are Gentiles.
    The talmud teaches all the little non-Gentiles that Gentiles are ‘animals in human form’ . . . put on this world by their invented god to serve the non-Gentiles. We Gentiles have no souls, no heaven to go to, and all because their god couldn’t care less about us. How convenient.

    There is so much more the world needs to know. Comments here are limited to 1500, words. I’ll have to start a website or something.
