    Muslims protest 'age of mockery' as thousands descend on Google HQ

    A protest by 10,000 Muslims outside the offices of Google in London today is just the first in an orchestrated attempt to force the company to remove an anti-Islamic film from website YouTube in Britain.

    ...snip...

    Organiser Masoud Alam said: "Our next protest will be at the offices of Google and YouTube across the world. We are looking to ban this film."This is not freedom of expression, there is a limit for that. This insult of the Prophet will not be allowed."

    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?

    Hmmmm. Why am I not surprised?

    As for Google and YT, I say stand your ground. Never bow to religious pressure, no matter where it comes from.

    We know that in real terms Obama opposes free speech. Let's hope Google continues to support it.

    Free speech is the strongest enemy of ignorant violent religious zealots. Of course they attack free speech. Free speech is their enemy more than bullets and bombs.

    If people want to peacefully protest, they are more than welcome to even if I find the reason for their protest to be wrong. Google shouldn't ban the film, although claims that Google believes in free speech are full of crap, seeing as how they easily pull videos at the request of corporate interests.

    Google better stand their ground, we have freedom of speech here and that includes the rights of these muslims to protest about something they are unhappy about. The irony is when one group uses freedom of speech to protest against another group's same freedom.

    As for safety, we allowed a similar march last month to the US embassy but there are clear guidelines and policing in place in the event any group tries to take the law into its own hands.

    The Daily Telegraph is a damn good newspaper, has long been one of two mainstream papers I've read over the years.

    If google removed all videos that offended other religious people then that would be one thing.But seeing how nobody cares about religious people being offended until there is a threat of terrorism then everyone would know that google removing the videos would be nothing more than a act of terrorist butt smooching or terrorist salad tossing(slang for anal oral sex). If google has any integrity then it should tell those protesters to **** off or remove videos that offend all religious people.
    "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"

    How did obama get into this conversation? especially since your comment is bogus in real terms.

    This is why we are fully justified to install puppet dictators in those countries.
