Youtube Bans “Feeling The Hate In Jerusalem”

Feeling The Hate In Jerusalem — The Censored Video from Max Blumenthal on Vimeo.

Youtube has removed my video, “Feeling The Hate In Jerusalem,” on the baseless grounds that it contains “inappropriate content.” They have offered me no further explanation and have stonewalled my inquiries and attempts to rectify the situation. Thus they have censored a video that contains far less inflammatory content than thousands of video they are already hosting. Why? I won’t ascribe motives to Youtube I am unable to confirm, but it is clear there is an active campaign by right-wing Jewish elements to suppress the video by filing a flood of complaints with Youtube. At the same time these elements have attempted to paint me as a self-hating Jew determined to foment anti-Semitism. I answered this last charge to Ha’aretz (read the barely coherent article here) last week: “I have received death threats from people, mainly ones calling me a self-hating Jew. I am self-hating, but my self-hatred has nothing to do with me being Jewish.”

Jewish Voices for Peace (the parent organization of the excellent website Muzzlewatch) is preparing an action for tomorrow to pressure Youtube into restoring the video. They are asking their members to email press@youtube.com to demand an explanation for the censorship. For now, I have reposted the video on Vimeo and urge everyone to distribute it widely

    Well Mr. Max, I really doubt you are anybody that follows your work is surprised. To be a journalist is to always risk being a target by whatever particular power structure (Jewish or not) exists where you live or report.

    Keep up the good work.

    It sucks that they pulled it down! How many hits it got? The last time I checked it had almost 400 000 views.

    Our Masters’ Voice:
    Hateful Jews call President Obama “Nigger,” say he Deserves to be Shot
    Greg Johnson

    Jew Max Blumenthal’s YouTube video “Feeling the Hate in Jerusalem” consists of interviews with drunken young Jews in Jerusalem ranting about Obama’s speech in Cairo.

    The racist, misogynist, scatalogical, and otherwise off-color epithets fly fast and furious: Obama is called a “nigger,” a “fuckhead,” a “pussy,” a “faggot,” and an “asshole.” He is told to “fuck off” and “go fuck himself.”

    His opening to the Arab world is described as “Nazi bullshit.”

    A female political science major who claims she “knows her shit” (but does not know who Benjamin Netanyahu is) trots out all the right-wing canards about Obama: he is a secret Muslim; he is a terrorist sympathizer; he was not born in the United States, thus he is not qualified to be President.

    In a truly surreal moment, one Jew attacks Obama for “fucking with his gun rights” and says he deserves to be shot. Moments later, he shouts out “White Power! Fuck the Nigger!” Are Jews really metamorphosing into Nazis? In 100 years, will white people be extinct and Jews be the only people left with blonde hair, blue eyes, a nation state, and national pride?

    We are also treated to the “My grandmother was in Auschwitz–Never Again!” argument. We are asked “What has Obama done for this country?” “What about the Jews? Are we chopped liver? Are we nothing to you? Do you care if we are driven into the sea? Do you care if we are nuked?” Apparently, we can never do enough for these people.

    The most reasonable young Jew simply states that Obama “does not understand that this country is ours.” His tone shows that he really believes it, that there is no question in his mind, and that he does not need us to believe it in order for him to believe it. He is not pleading for us to grant his ideas credibility. Watch this segment, white man, and learn.

    Judging from their accents, most of the young Jews interviewed are American citizens or dual citizens. One claims to have worked for the Obama campaign. I am sure that the Secret Service will want to have words with them the next time they land in New York.

    The fact that none of them seemed intimidated by such a prospect indicates the extent to which they feel in control of America, even while they posture as terrified victims about to be driven into the sea. We are ruled by bullies with the psyches of cornered rats.

    Blumenthal writes about his motives for creating this video and the reactions to its release in an article on the Mondoweiss site, “Censored by the Huffington Post and Imprisoned by the Past: Why I Made ‘Feeling the Hate in Jerusalem.’” Be sure to scroll down and also read the article “Blumenthal’s Video is a Reflection of Lieberman’s Israel.”

    RE: “it is clear there is an active campaign by right-wing Jewish elements to suppress the video by filing a flood of complaints with YouTube”

    SEE: “ADL, YouTube launch partnership to fight video abuse”, Dec. 14, 2008, By MAX SOCOL, “THE JERUSALEM POST”

    (EXCERPT) The Anti-Defamation League announced Sunday its recent expansion into the world of YouTube, the on-line video-sharing site.
    The US-based advocacy group has officially partnered with the digital media powerhouse in an effort to combat hate speech and other forms of abuse…

    Thank you for helping Israel from its own radicals. You are one of the many people who are contributing for peace. You are no different than Prof. Chomsky and Prof. Finkelstein.

    We are supporting you. keep it up Max

    I must say that I very much agree that the “Feeling The Hate In Jerusalem” video is deserving of very sharp criticism, possibly including banning from YouTube and elsewhere. Why? It has all the hallmarks of a deliberately deceptive scam.

    There’s no indication whatever of how common such views are in Israel. Thus, Blumenthal is very likely guilty of the journalistic (and scientific) transgression commonly known as “cherry picking”. If I were to take a video crew to Chicago or Hawaii (two places Barack Obama lived) and interviewed a thousand people — including the same proportion of drunks as in “Feeling the Hate” — on their views of him, even if 985 of those people voiced strong support and praise, I’d still be able to put together a video with just the 15 who hated him and threw ugly epithets at him, and it would be indistinguishable from the piece Blumenthal published.

    I’m an American atheist with no Jewish family members or other Jewish or Israeli ties, so I do not write this out of self-interest. I simply contend that a journalist has a profound ethical obligation to be fair-minded and intellectually honest with his or her audience, and Mr. Blumenthal has completely ignored those obligations in the piece in question.

    It will be interesting to see if Mr. Blumenthal’s opposition to censorship extends to not deleting this post.

    Yes, and this is why the likes of right wing republicans try to subvert foreign policy some openly, and others using underhanded means like this Canadian extremist Brad Kostynuik, AKA “Wharold”, a kahanist likudnik from Calgary he runs this with his wife Brandi Dickman,
    http://www.rockpaperinternet.com/brad.html

    Unlike Debbie Schlussel, Waldi Shoebat, and Brijitte Gabriel, Kostynuik propagates his anti Palestinian, anti Obama, anti Moslem hate under the alias “Wharold”, and not his real name of Brad Kostynuik

    Kostynuik creates anti Obama posters and art which he distributes to his bloggers, like other right wing extremists in the hope of turning public opinion.

    This is Brad Kostynuik’s professional life website in his official persona
    http://www.rockpaperinternet.com/brad.html

    resume of “Wharold” AKA Brad Kostynuik
    http://www.defrost.ca/defrosters.php?action=view&vid=1270

    This is his smear site, at WordPress where he smears Obama, and Palestinians, and his xenophobia and racism
    http://doosmdayclockradio.wordpress.com

    Brad Kostynuik was involved in an episode for Fred’s Bicycle Repair Shop and was with a music group in Toronto,

    He posts in talkbacks and commentaries at various right wing websites using the alias “Wharold”.

    His company Rock Paper Internet has done some work for The Canadian Farm Business Management Council who are unaware of his double life, as an anti Obama propagandist, right wing zealotry, and his affiliations with Kahanists, the Jewish version of Al Qaeda, and the Dominionists (Christian Evangleical Rapture club) Kahanism is illegal in the US, and I think in Canada they don’t even have the free speech rights that we do here.

    Max – I’m a great fan of your videos, I’m appalled this censorship has happened – and concerned this act of censorship doesn’t seem to be big news, yet. I note the video is down on vimeo as well. You’ve clearly hit the mark!

    I may do a follow-up story about this on my own blog soon. For now, check out a pale imitation from Australia, courtesy of the Australian jewish News.

    “Sorry, “Feeling The Hate In Jerusalem — The Censored Video” was deleted at 12:53:27 Wed Jul 8, 2009. We have no more information about it on our mainframe or elsewhere.” Is the message I got when I visited the Vimeo link in Blumenthal’s post. Is there anywhere I can find this video on the ‘net?
