jewish group plans to sue youtube for anti-israel videos

from haaretz: Germany’s Central Council of Jews is considering a criminal complaint against YouTube for allowing videos that promote racial hatred and glorify war, it was reported Sunday.

Such action makes the video-sharing website liable to charges of incitement to racial hatred, the council’s vice president, Salomon Korn, told the German television program Report Mainz.

“I expect the prosecutor’s office, other relevant authorities and, if necessary, the German government to take action against this,” Korn was quoted as saying in the program due to be aired Monday.

Program researchers said it was possible to watch videos on YouTube of an anti-Semitic film released by the Nazis during World War II called Jud Suess.

Outlawed videos of the neo-Nazi groups Kommando Freisler and Landser were also available on the Web site, the television programme broadcast by Germany’s ARD network said.
