Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Blaming The Good Guys: YouTube Punishes Palestine Media Watch

It permits all sorts of dark and evil conspiracy theories involving Jews and Freemasons.  It's cluttered with the most hardcore racist, antisemitic, and misogynist comments.

But it seems that, like the Israel-bashing Methodist bloggers' site that last week censored a reference of mine to this link and video, YouTube is sensitive towards exposure of hate speech like this, the text of the hate poem recited by a young girl on PA TV's children's program:  

Girl: "Allah created me and formed me
He made me prouder and made me a Palestinian
He made defiance flow like blood in my veins
And I made the revolution burst forth like clay stones
I raised the flags of certain victory:
Allah's book [the Quran] and the tradition of the most esteemed among prophets [Muhammad].
I called in the voice of hidden justice
I lit a fire like volcanoes under their feet
I refused to be submissive and degraded
I rejected [everything] but dying with the honor that will give me life
From a nation that has forgotten the Muslims' heroism
- Omar ibn al-Khattab and Saladin - [Muslim fighters who conquered Jerusalem]
from between the whistles of the bullets I sing:
'Long live the nation of Fatah and Yasser Arafat'
Allah's enemies, the sons of pigs [i.e., Jews, in Islamic tradition]

Destroyed and uprooted the olive and fig trees
They murdered children with guns, like snakes
They cut off their limbs with stones and knives
They raped the women in the city squares
They defiled Allah's book [the Quran] in front of millions
Where is the nation of Islam?
Where are the nation of Islam and the Jihad fighters?
Where is the fear of Allah in Jerusalem, which has been defiled by the Zionists?"
PA TV host: "Bravo, applause, applause, applause to Hadeel."

[PA TV (Fatah), March 22, 2013]

For, Palestine Media Watch [PMW] reveals:
'Last week, Palestinian Media Watch released a video-bulletin showing a Palestinian Authority children's TV broadcast of a hate-poem. A young Palestinian girl recited a poem referring to Jews as "Allah's enemies, the sons of pigs" who "murdered children," "cut off their limbs," "raped the women in the city squares" and "defiled Allah's book." The host responded with enthusiastic applause and "Bravo!"
The following day, YouTube blocked access to PMW's video, defining it as a "violation of YouTube's policy prohibiting hate speech."
In the past, YouTube has closed PMW's account or frozen PMW's account for exposing PA religious leaders promoting genocide of Jews. This is the first time YouTube has defined a broadcast on PA children's TV as hate speech, and blocked PMW from exposing it.
PMW does not promote hate speech, but exposes it. PMW believes that the only way to stop the Palestinian Authority's ongoing Islam-based hate speech and terror glorification is to expose it. By preventing PMW from exposing PA hatred, YouTube is actively impeding our ability to fight the PA's hate promotion.
YouTube has even threatened PMW with termination of its YouTube account should PMW continue exposing this hate speech:
 "Additional violations may result in the temporary disabling of your ability to post content to YouTube and/or the permanent termination of your account."'
