Google says anti-Islam film isn’t against Muslims

Google said on Friday that it would not comply with a White House request to reconsider the anti-Islam video that has set off violent protests in the Arab world in light of its rules banning hate speechon YouTube, which it owns.

Google said it had already determined that the video did not violate its terms of service regarding hate speech. In this case, the video stays up because it is against the Islam religion but not Muslim people.

So, according to Google, a film entitled “The Innocence of Muslims” isn’t, in fact, directed against Muslims.
