Here's a new twist on the effort to suppress 'hate speech': Palestine Media Watch (PMW) is an Israeli organization that monitors Palestinian media and, among other things, posts excerpts from various Arabic-language programs on YouTube with English subtitles.

YouTube has apparently closed down PMW's main video account - for propagating hate speech. Yes, the stuff they're posting is full of murderous hate and vitriol, but that's because that's common fare on Palestinian TV. Titles of the excerpts that YouTube found objectionable:

1. "Hamas TV teaches kids to kill Jews"

2. "Jews are a virus like Aids"

3. "Farewell video before suicide attack of Hamas suicide bomber Adham Ahmad Hujyla Abu Jandal"

4. "Hamas suicide farewell video: Jews monkeys and pigs; Maidens reward for killing Jews"

5. "PA cleric: Kill Jews, Allah will make Muslims masters over Jews"

6. "Hamas suicide terrorist farewell video: Palestinians drink the blood of Jews"

YouTube is merely shooting the messenger. The governmental authorities in Palestine, both Fatah and Hamas, indoctrinate their people to convince them that Israel must be wiped off the map. (In fact, Israel has already been wiped off the maps in Palestinian schoolbooks).

Hiding this fact won't help - in fact, ignoring it has done tremendous harm to everyone, including all those young kids being pumped full of hate.
