YouTube Again Targets My Channel

It looks like YouTube has undergone a face lift, with a brand new look and feel.

But the aesthetics can’t hide the fact something very rotten is still going on there.

About a month after they took down my Roger Waters video as “hate speech” – only to reinstate it a week later – they’ve now done it again, this time regarding a Hamas video I uploaded for this post.

Is this part of a campaign to target pro-Israel accounts? Or is it YouTube trying to crack down on videos from terrorists? Given it is the raw video without commentary, I accept if they want to remove it (although I think it is a mistake since exposing Hamas’ hatred and lies to as many people as possible is important). But to issue a strike against my account, as if I support the content of the video (note the video title) – that’s just wrong.

I have appealed and we’ll see if that does anything. I would hate to lose the 170+ videos with combined views of over 1.2 million.
