Every day during this Ramadan, David Wood has been posting episodes of the video series he has produced in collaboration with Vocab Malone and Jon McCray, “Islamicize Me.” The idea is that three young men decide to live exactly as Muhammad directed for a month. It’s a biting satire based on the genuinely strange, dangerous, inexplicable, and violent things Muhammad is depicted as saying and doing in Hadith collections that Muslims accept as reliable.

 I’ve posted the first 22 episodes here at Jihad Watch, but just now I went to get the 23rd and set it up for posting, and found the notice: “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s policy on hate speech.”

 Now, I haven’t seen episode 23, but I do know that it is entitled “Dawah to Jews,” and so I can imagine that it might depict the boys quoting some of the hateful material directed toward Jews in the Qur’an and Hadith. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

 The Hadith are even worse, and much more voluminous, with a great abundance of material depicting Jews as evilly scheming against Muhammad and the Muslims. His poisoning is blamed on them. His death is blamed on them. They’re depicted collectively as greedy, untrustworthy liars.

 The idea of “Islamicize Me” is to call attention to material of this kind in the Islamic sources, as well as material that is frankly absurd, such as the idea of drinking camel urine as a cure of what ails you. It’s a broadly comic series, but its intent is deadly serious, and it is scrupulously based on material that is actually within the canonical Islamic sources.

 So by banning episode 23, YouTube is essentially saying that the Qur’an and Hadith contain hate speech. Is that really a position they want to take? Or are they being Sharia-compliant again, and banning this material because some Muslims found it offensive (while material offensive to adherents of other religions abounds on YouTube).

 YouTube needs to be called to account, and to answer, for its tyrannical behavior acting as judge, jury and executioner, and offering no recourse or appeal, in banning videos. And as it is essentially a monopoly, it needs to be broken up, along with the other social media giants, under anti-trust laws.

 Meanwhile, here’s hoping that David Wood will be able to make “Islamicize Me” episode 23 available somewhere forthwith.

ALERT ALERT

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails
Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic Bag Republican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.

The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.

Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.

Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…

…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.

Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire
A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500

A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.

Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.

FOX News reported:

A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.

“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
