    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This is still going? Oh boy.

    Google best stand their ground.

    I agree, google has already demonstrated a pretty strong pro-free-speech stance and I expect it to continue. And kudos to them for it.

    Yeah, when Google/YouTube start taking down videos that are within their own standards just because somebody somewhere is offended and issues threats, then freedom of speech is meaningless, and liberty takes another pounding in the name of "freedom for me, but not for thee."

    Google probably knew their home address and travel plans before they ever arrived

    They won't do anything about it.

    So the question is, does Google/You Tube continue to stand their ground, or is safety of the general public/Google employees more important than principle in this case? And how long will protests remain peaceful?

    (Mods, if Telegraph isn't a "Mainstream Media" source I apologize.)[/FONT][/COLOR]
    I think they should remove it. They don't enjoy freedom of speech protection throughout the world. If it offends enough people in one country that 10,000 people protest? I think it should be removed in the interests of peace.

    That's been tried before many times but it never seems to bring any peace at all.

    I believe your attitude will prevail, which is why the Muslims will win in the long run, no matter what Google does.

    This shocks me. There is absolutely no reason we should ever compromise our commitment to freedom of speech and the press (as guerrilla as youtube is) because a bunch of reactionary overseas folks don't like it
