Vice president: Iran will pursue makers of anti-Islam film

September 17, 2012

(ynet)Iran’s government will “track down” those responsible for making an amateurish film clip mocking the Prophet Mohammad, a senior official said, Iranianmedia reported on Monday.
The video made in California and posted on YouTube portrayed the Prophet Mohammad as a womanizer and a fool. It has ignited a week of violent protests across the Muslim world.

Iran’s vice president says Teheran will ‘search for, track down and pursue guilty person who has insulted 1.5 billion Muslims in the world’; officials demand apology from US over movie
“The government of the Islamic Republic of Iran condemns … this inappropriate and offensive action,” First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi said, according to the Mehr news agency.
 
“Certainly it will search for, track, and pursue this guilty person who … has insulted 1.5 billion Muslims in the world,” he said.
 
The Islamic Republic’s founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, condemned to death the Indian-born British novelist Salman Rushdie in 1989 for his novel “The Satanic Verses,” saying its depiction of the Prophet Mohammad was blasphemous.
 
Iranian officials have demanded that the United States apologize to Muslims for the movie, saying it is only the latest in a series of Western insults aimed at Islam’s holy figures.
 
Rahimi did not give details on how Iran would pursue the makers of the film in his remarks, which the Iranian Students’ News Agency said he had made at a cabinet meeting on Sunday.
 
The US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya, last Tuesday and several other people have died in protests around the Muslim world against the video entitled “Innocence of Muslims.”
 
The identity of those directly responsible for the film is still murky. Clips of the film posted online since July have been attributed to a man named Sam Bacile, which two people linked to the film have said was probably an alias.
 
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, a Coptic Christian widely linked to the film in media reports, was voluntarily questioned on Saturday by US authorities investigating possible violations of his probation for a bank fraud conviction.
 
An Iranian religious foundation said on Saturday it was increasing its reward for the killing of Rushdie, though he had nothing to do with the film, offering a total of $3.3 million for anyone who carried out Khomeini’s death sentence.


update: Google rejects White House request to pull Mohammad film clip

(Reuters) – Google Inc rejected a request by the White House on Friday to reconsider its decision to keep online a controversial YouTube movie clip that has ignited anti-American protests in the Middle East.

The Internet company said it was censoring the video in India andIndonesia after blocking it on Wednesday in Egypt and Libya, where U.S. embassies have been stormed by protestors enraged over depiction of the Prophet Mohammad as a fraud and philanderer.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were killed in a fiery siege on the embassy in Benghazi.

Google said was further restricting the clip to comply with local law rather than as a response to political pressure.

“We’ve restricted access to it in countries where it is illegal such as India and Indonesia, as well as in Libya and Egypt, given the very sensitive situations in these two countries,” the company said. “This approach is entirely consistent with principles we first laid out in 2007.”

The LA Times reports:

Administration officials have asked YouTube to review a controversial video that many blame for spurring a wave of anti-American violence in the Middle East.
The administration flagged the 14-minute “Innocence of Muslims” video and asked that YouTube evaluate it to determine whether it violates the site’s terms of service, officials said Thursday. The video, which has been viewed by nearly 1.7 million users, depicts Muhammad as a child molester, womanizer and murderer — and has been decried as blasphemous and Islamophobic.

According to the story, YouTube reviewed the video earlier this week and concluded that it was “clearly within” the website’s guidelines.

Censored on YouTube: 420 Boston Hempfest Knockout Punch

April 22, 2012
It’s offensive to see what goes on in reality? by the way… this is why this needs to be legalized. Because perfectly good people have to get involved with people like this when they are down and out. The only reason this stuff is illegal now is because minority communities make so much money off miserable white folks who are just trying to forget their sorrows. don’t ever expect Obama to legalize Marijuana.

Youtube: The real face of the jews

Pretty amazing what makes it by the censors when they censor evidence that Khader was a terrorist… or they censor animations depicting Jews as Apes and Pigs when that is what the Muslims believe Mohammad their prophet said.

Who is Khader Adnan? Skilled propagandist stages 2nd hunger strike

February 22, 2012

(Why does Youtube keep on deleting the proof that Khader Adnan is a terrorist?)(Who is Khader Adnan? Skilled Propagandist Stages 2nd Hunger Strike | Israel Defense Forces) Khader Adnan is a ranking 6-year plus member of the internationally recognized terrorist organization, Islamic Jihad, which has encouraged and overseen the murder of Israelis. Adnan, a seasoned propagandist, is now trying for the second time to use a hunger strike as a means of garnering international sympathy.
Adnan’s hunger ‘plight’ is well-documented in mainstream media, but the hundreds of news articles provide little information into his past- the reasons for his incarceration are unimportant to those who oppose Israel. The fact that Adnan has a long list of crimes is a minor detail that need only be glossed over; besides the half-dozen times he has been detained by Israeli authorities for terror-related offenses, Adnan has also been arrested by the Palestinian Authority (as reported by Ma’an news agency and the BBC on September 30, 2010).
He has taken the initiative in calling for terror attacks against Israel. On June 8, 2005, the Boston Globe identified Adnan as an “Islamic Jihad spokesman,” and quoted him repudiating any sort of cease fire with Israel, and urging all Palestinian terror groups to resume fighting with Israel.

…Why does YouTube keep on censoring this?

(This Ongoing War) Khader Adnan, aka Sheikh Adnan Khodr aka Khader Adnan. Mohammad Musa is not a simple baker. He’s not a “peace” “activist”. What in fact he is, is

  • “one of Islamic Jihad leaders” [the WAFA Palestinian news agency]
  • “one of the main leaders of the Palestinian militant movement Islamic Jihad” [Al Arabiya]
  • “Sheikh Adnan Khodr, the political leader of Islamic Jihad movement in Palestine” [Uruknet]
In short, he is a well-known leader of one of the world’s nastiest terror organizations, and death and pain is what he not only wishes on us and our children and neighbours, but it’s what he lives for and – according to what his promoters want us to believe – it’s what he’s ready to die for.
Behold the unambiguous cry from the heart of this lifelong terrorist:

The fact that Catherine Ashton, the EU foreign affairs chief, said at the weekend that Adnan’s case was of “great concern” suggests to us that she and her staff have too much free time on their hands or they lack a basic understanding of how to tell the difference between the terrorists and their targets.


Why does Youtube keep on deleting the proof that Khader Adnan is a terrorist?

February 22, 2012
On the left is a video where CNN tries to sell the public that Khader Adnan is denied due process and that he supposedly is being held without evidence that he is a threat to the public. Notice how unfriendly the woman is to Regev who is quite professional. On the right is a video of Khader Adnan that Youtube keeps on censoring.
Seems like there is a conspiracy to hide the truth here… doesn’t it? Can anyone explain how the media gets away with this? should this video get censored… I just uploaded another copy of it here.

YouTube freezes PMW account again

January 17, 2012
(Palwatch.org) In response to yesterday’s PMW video-bulletin which showed the PA Mufti’s speech that Muslims’ destiny is to kill Jews, YouTube has frozen PMW’s account. All PMW videos are working except this one but the account is frozen and PMW cannot upload new videos for the next two weeks.

We have uploaded the video to a different server and it can now again be viewed from PMW’s website.
The video that YouTube is calling “inappropriate” exposed the Palestinian Authority Mufti citing the Islamic tradition (Hadith) that anticipates Muslims’ killing Jews as a precursor to the Hour of Resurrection. The Jews are also called the “descendants of the apes and pigs” by a Fatah moderator at the event. The following is the text of the video.
Moderator at Fatah ceremony:
“Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs (i.e., Jews)
is a war of religion and faith.
Long Live Fatah! [I invite you,] our honorable Sheikh.”
PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein comes to the podium and says:
“47 years ago the [Fatah] revolution started. Which revolution? The modern revolution of the Palestinian people’s history. In fact, Palestine in its entirety is a revolution, since [Caliph] Umar came [to conquer Jerusalem, 637 CE], and continuing today, and until the End of Days. The reliable Hadith (tradition attributed to Muhammad), [found] in the two reliable collections, Bukhari and Muslim, says:
“The Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews.
The Jew will hide behind stones or trees.
Then the stones or trees will call:
‘Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.’
Except the Gharqad tree [which will keep silent].”
Therefore it is no wonder that you see Gharqad [trees]
surrounding the [Israeli] settlements and colonies..”
