Last week, Palestinian Media Watch reported that YouTube had blocked a PMW video in Hebrew that exposed Fatah's incitement to murder, defining it as a violation of YouTube's "policy on depiction of harmful activities."
PMW had exposed a video that was posted on the YouTube account of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (the military wing of Fatah), which Fatah subsequently publicized on its official Facebook page. The video incites Palestinians to kidnap, bomb and kill Israelis.
YouTube has removed the block on the video and it can be viewed on PMW's account here in English and here in Hebrew.
PMW thanks all our readers who contacted YouTube about the removal of the video.
Significantly, however, the video still appears on the YouTube account of Fatah's military wing. This Arabic-only version is explicit incitement to murder and already has more than 33,500 views.
