The administration of YouTube site has deleted thousands of videos documenting the crimes of the tyrant of Ash-Sham since the beginning of the revolution in Syria. On 24/08/2017, the site had also closed our two other channels: HT Media – the alternative website, and the Khilafah website channel. And on 09/09/2017, it closed the Nidaat Al-Aqsa channel, after it had closed our four other channels earlier during the last month. The site justified this step on the pretext of the need for anti-terrorism!
In a desperate and ridiculous attempt, the site tried to justify its crime as not a suppression of freedom of expression but an attempt to defend the values of Western civilization. The site claims that it does not want to facilitate the work of those who attack the values of Western society that sanctifies freedom of expression and freedom of opinion! It states at the end of the statement issued by the website: “Extremists and terrorists seek to attack and erode not just our security but also our values, the very things that make our societies open and free. We must not let them”. See YouTube site statement
Thus, the poor justification is exposed by the site mixing between the material acts that target civilians and the intellectual and political debate of what they call the “values” of Western society. So how can this be reconciled with their false claim that Western values, based on the democratic principle that sanctifies individual freedoms, including the freedom of thought, opinion and expression, which also includes the expression of opposing and contradictory opinions, whether by the organs of the ruling authority, the media or others?!
This statement only means the explicit acknowledgement that the democratic house is more fragile than the spider’s web. It cannot tolerate a veil (Khimar) worn by a Muslim woman, nor to hear an opposing thought that discusses the false arguments on which it is based.
Perhaps Mr. Francis Fukuyama and his fellows, the American intellectuals, signatories of the 60 intellectuals’ statement which they issued under the title “What We’re Fighting For” at the beginning of 2002 to justify the crusader war launched by George Bush against the Muslim Ummah, claiming to be universal human values, just as Fukuyama claimed the end of the history movement with the triumph of the so-called democratic ideology. Perhaps, if they have an atom of sincerity with themselves first and then with their own people, they recognize the fact that the only “convincing” democracy argument is the bare force based on the law of the jungle and not on any thought or intellectual proof. Praise be to Allah, the truth of the Western crusade against the Muslims has been revealed to everyone who has insight, as it is no longer a secret the protection of the West, headed by America, the owner of the alleged Statue of Liberty, their protection of the of Ash-Sham for his crimes that are disgrace to humankind whenever and wherever they exist.
We conclude by saying that the crime of YouTube in covering up the crimes of the butcher of Damascus will not deter us from continuing to work to destroy his tyranny and eliminate his criminality, fully aware that this is done only with the establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) State on the method of the Prophethood, the capable to deter the colonizing states from their aim.
