Bowing to "right-wing Jewish elements," YouTube Pulled Max Blumenthal's Jerusalem Vid

"Feeling the hate in Jerusalem," which he recorded in the hours before and after Obama's Cairo speech earlier this month. Vimeo still has it up. Download it for posterity:

Youtube bans Max Blumenthal's 'Feel the hate' video

Richard Silverstein sends out notice that "Max Blumenthal's video, Feel the Hate in Jerusalem, has been banned by YouTube (where it was viewed hundreds of thousands of times) after a campaign by right-wing Jews who believe it promotes anti-Semitism. (It promotes anti-dickheadism, which isn't (always) the same thing. W)

I hope you'll circulate this message and my post to your own friends, colleagues, and co-workers. We need a viral campaign to get YouTube to reconsider their foolish, anti-free-expression decision to ban this important piece of media education on the issues of ... racism."

Here's Max Blumenthal responding to the campaign against the video:
it is clear there is an active campaign by right-wing Jewish elements to suppress the video by filing a flood of complaints with Youtube. At the same time these elements have attempted to paint me as a self-hating Jew determined to foment anti-Semitism.
Here's a link to Richard's report.

Here's an alternative link to another hosting service that has the video.

Update: A commenter at Richard's blog says someone has reuploaded the video and it has not been taken down yet.
