Germany Busts Online Jihadi

Good news one more enemy propagandist out of action.

NY times:A 36-year-old Iraqi man identified only as Ibrahim R and suspected of spreading video and audio recordings by leaders of Al Qaeda on the Internet was arrested near western Osnabrück and could be charged with supporting a terrorist organization, federal prosecutors said. They said the messages were from Osama bin Laden, his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, and the leader of the Iraq insurgency, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was killed in June.

1 Why can't NoJewTube (or NoJewGoogleTube) be charged with spreading enemy propaganda on the internet? Or do they have a specific clause in their terms of service in which they're not responsible for the promotion and spread of jihad porn and propaganda?

2 As far as I know as long as they are unaware they are fine. Once they are notified they have to pull it. You can also run it as news for informational purposes and it's not a crime. Context is everything in this matter. Alos if you are a US govt declared terrorist organization you cannot broadcast from USA.

3 Hats off to the German police!
As they say in their own precise language:
"Ausgezeichnet! Gut gemacht!" :-)
However, the German judiciary has in the past been too weak to convict or severely punish terrorists.
