Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Google have actively suppressed videos of Palestinians cutting down power lines to a settlement west of Ramallah.
On Monday July 21st people woke up to find various posts had been deleted from social media sites. This post in particular was wiped off a number of sites, but seems to be viewable from the original source. A number of social media users who shared the post however had their accounts deleted without warning.
Here are a couple links to where the video can be viewed:
Direct Action Gets the Goods…
The Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister, Member of Knesset Tzipi Hotovely, held meetings this week with representatives of YouTube and Google, to find ways of cooperating to censor Palestinian videos from occupied Palestine, videos she dubbed as “inciting violence and terrorism”, as stated by IMEMC.
Israeli newspaper Maariv said Hotovely will be working with Google and YouTube officials in a joint mechanism that will be in charge of “monitoring and preventing” any publication of materials deemed by Tel Aviv to be “inflammatory.”
