The videos from the MEMRI TV Channel that I and other bloggers have embedded on our sites or linked to do not show up now.
Aussie pro-Israel activist Shirlee Finn (aka "Shirl in Oz" as a commenter) is on the case, with this plea:
For some unknown reason YouTube, which allows the most vile antisemitic, anti-Christian, racist, sexually explicit, jihadist and homophobic videos to stand on its web site, has chosen to remove the MEMRI Channel which is nothing but the truth. It offers direct translations the vile trash taken from the Middle East media, as the name suggests.
This Channel is bringing the truth to the world, yet Youtube deletes it. What an utter disgrace.
Please contact them asking for it to be reinstated.
