YouTube, Fitna: Hotbed of Terrorist "How-to" Videos Censors Geert Wilder's 'What the West Needs to Know'

[CORRECTION: YouTube pulled the video called “Islam: What the West Needs to Know”. OOps! Early morning and all that! But the principle still stands.]

YouTube, the Internet video channel that is famous for providing "how-to" videos for the aspiring terrorist on everything from making explosives to using radio-controlled cars to detonate bombs by remote control, has sometimes taken days to remove such material.

However, the Google-owned website wasted no such time in removing the video for Geert Wilder's film, "Islam: What the West Needs to Know".

That's quite alright with us. It's provided an urgent agenda for the day: finding the video and providing it outside the boundaries of YouTube.

In the meantime, we have a video trailer for the movie, which YouTube either overlooked or deigned "acceptable".

Hopefully, we'll have the video, or parts of it, later today.

Wilder's work would perhaps have fared better on YouTube had he included instructions for blowing up a synagogue or accused Muslims of regularly engaging in gay sex.
