Google: we won’t remove video that attacks Jews
But just attack Muslims and see how far you get
Google has refused to remove a video from YouTube that one of the company’s executives admitted was “antisemitic, deeply offensive and shocking”.
MPs criticised the technology company, which owns YouTube, yesterday after it claimed that a video entitled “Jews admit organising white genocide” did not breach its rules on hate speech.
