Google owned YouTube have deleted our channel claiming we violated their ‘Community Standards’; it turned out we were not the only victims, first they tried to rip us off from the revenues by striking most of our videos with their ‘not advertisers friendly’ claim, while they continued to play ads on the same videos, then removing the whole channel.
We had over 500 very important videos, most of which were and still exist on terrorist groups channels but not addressed to the Western or the international societies as it is in Arabic or Urdu to help them recruit more radical graduates of Saudi sponsored ‘Madrassas’, and all we did was adding English subtitles to these videos so the world will realize who is killing the Syrian people, which made the propagandists work more difficult.
This will not stop us defending our country and exposing the lies of the Western politicians, their media aka fake news, their lobbyists and their regional stooges. We will not let them take control of the last bastion against their hegemony goals to turn our beloved country Syria, the cradle of civilization to one of their client countries or divided in-fighting ’emirates’ or ‘sheikhdoms’ asking the USA to solve our internal issues like the case now with the Gulfies.
We have found one platform for now to host our videos called Vid.me and we will continue to find other ways to upload our massive library deleted by al-Qaeda’s official propaganda platform on Social Media.
This attempt by Google-owned YouTube reminds us of what Facebook also did the same on multiple occasions deleting hundreds of pro-Syria profiles, groups, and pages while it protected and even promoted profiles, groups, and pages that explicitly called for genocide against Syrian civilians and Syrian public institutes. This might upset those simple-minded in the West especially to learn about, but this is how their countries justify invading other countries, then a decade or more later would or would not apologize for the invasions they carry out based on mere lies.
Obviously, NSA-colluding platforms are trying to remain the monopoly of news but thanks to the hundreds of activists this will never happen and with your support, we can fight them back and restore our rights in free will, free speech and decide our own future.
Update July 22, 2017: We have no clue why but YouTube has revised ‘again’ our channel and deemed it ‘is not in violation with (their) Terms of Service.’ and since have re-instated the channel or as they called it ‘unsuspended our account’.
However, and for our surprise, this didn’t come for free. The Google-owned monopoly or monopoly wanna remain, stroke a number of the videos with ‘Copyright claims
We are in the process of backing-up all our videos from there and continue to look for a more stable, unbiased, proper online library to maintain the videos and revisit all the articles here and update the relevant posts with the new links to the new library just to be on the safe side from having another set of YouTube admins decide to delete our channel again for no proper reason and without prior notice. Your suggestion on the new alternative to YouTube platform are very much welcomed and highly appreciated.
