YouTube [Finally] Takes a Stand Against Dhimmitude! - Updated
In order to get the new Geert Wilders' Fitna film the widest possibly audience co-blogger Howie uploaded it to YouTube. Within minutes the Islamists, wishing to silence any criticism of the Quran, started flagging the video. Soon thereafter, sticking with their normal MO, the video was taken down and Darthodeius (known as Howie around the Jawa) received a message saying his account was suspended.

I never thought I'd say this, but thank you YouTube! Update: Co-blogger Bluto also received the nasty-gram and retraction from YouTube. His response is rather less charitable than this one. Bluto has asked YouTube to provide contact info for a YouTube staffer to explain the incident. Don't hold your breath.
