YouTube says clips in violation of policy prohibiting hate speech
YouTube deletes Shoah denial cartoons
Following protests from Simon Wiesenthal Center, video sharing website removes series of 10 animated anti-Semitic clips which mock six million victims of World War II Nazi genocide
Following protests from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, YouTube removed a series of 10 animated anti-Semitic and Holocaust Denial clips, saying that they were in violation of the video site’s policy prohibiting hate speech.


The videos are animated versions of the notorious Iranian book from 2008 that in its preface, seeks to “denounce the conspicuous lie of the ‘planed (sic) murder of six million Jews during the Second World War’ allegedly called ‘Holocaust’. The lie that is so obvious that there is no need for any further explanation. The lie by which the Palestine occupier Zionists have justified their occupying of Palestine and lots of their crimes for years.”


The YouTube videos were uploaded from, a multimedia site that includes downloadable versions of the original 2008 book in Persian, Arabic, English, Spanish, and French.


The cartoons mock the six million victims of the World War II Nazi genocide, while demonizing world Jewry and the State of Israel.


“The Wiesenthal Center commends YouTube for removing many of the animated caricatures of hate posted from Tehran," said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the leading Jewish human rights NGO.  


"This regime's hatred knows no bounds when it comes to the Jewish People, our faith, and history, and Tehran's pre-genocidal rhetoric extends even to dead Jews."


Last month, following a request from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Facebook immediately removed an anti-Semitic page posted from Iran, which was replete with genocidal threats and slanders against Israel, the Jewish people, and Judaism.
