YouTube is taking these Four Steps to fight online terror | QPT


YouTube’s Parent company Google has announced
that it is taking 4 additional steps for fighting online Terror. First, Gooole is increasing their use of technology
to help identify extremist and terrorism-related videos. This can be challenging: a video of a terrorist
attack may be informative news reporting if broadcast by the BBC, or glorification of
violence if uploaded in a different context by a different user. Google has used video analysis models to find
and assess more than 50 per cent of the terrorism-related content they have removed over the past six
months. Google will now devote more engineering resources
to apply their most advanced machine learning research to train new “content classifiers”
to help them more quickly identify and remove extremist and terrorism-related content. Second, because technology alone is not a
silver bullet, Google will greatly increase the number of independent experts in YouTube’s
Trusted Flagger programme. Machines can help identify problematic videos,
but human experts still play a role in nuanced decisions about the line between violent propaganda
and religious or newsworthy speech. While many user flags can be inaccurate, Trusted
Flagger reports are accurate over 90 per cent of the time and help Google scale their efforts
and identify emerging areas of concern. Google will expand this programme by adding
50 expert NGOs to the 63 organisations who are already part of the programme, and Google
will support them with operational grants. This allows Google to benefit from the expertise
of specialised organisations working on issues like hate speech, self-harm, and terrorism. Google will also expand their work with counter-extremist
groups to help identify content that may be being used to radicalise and recruit extremists. Third, Google will be taking a tougher stance
on videos that do not clearly violate their policies — for example, videos that contain
inflammatory religious or supremacist content. In future these will appear behind an interstitial
warning and they will not be monetised, recommended or eligible for comments or user endorsements. That means these videos will have less engagement
and be harder to find. Google thinks this strikes the right balance
between free expression and access to information without promoting extremely offensive viewpoints. Finally, YouTube will expand its role in counter-radicalisation
efforts. Building on their successful Creators for
Change programme promoting YouTube voices against hate and radicalisation, they are
working with Jigsaw to implement the “Redirect Method” more broadly across Europe. This promising approach harnesses the power
of targeted online advertising to reach potential Isis recruits, and redirects them towards
anti-terrorist videos that can change their minds about joining. In previous deployments of this system, potential
recruits have clicked through on the ads at an unusually high rate, and watched over half
a million minutes of video content that debunks terrorist recruiting messages.

  1. The term "EXTREMIST" is a highly EXPLOITABLE and unjustly contrived label;
    and has already been use to work extreme human rights violations and
    unjust religious persecution against innocent, weaponless, and
    conscientious objector-to-war Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia and
    elsewhere. The focus instead should be upon those who are truly guilty
    of violence and other extreme injustices; and also upon those who
    promote terrorism and injustice – by way of SLANDER-based hate speech –
    against innocent persons. 

    Freedom of speech to speak truth – especially scriptural truth about God – is a
    God-given human right. The ugly truth, however, is that those with an
    EXTREMIST HATE FOR the GOD of the Bible, Jehovah; His Son, Jesus
    Christ; God's own scriptural standards; and preachers/ messengers of
    these Divine words of truth are finding vehicles among other
    God-defiant, unaware, and conscience-lacking individuals, to try to more
    effectively silence persons from speaking out vital scriptural truth
    and warnings to their fellow man. 

    I saw a video of such a developing technology, housed in Saudi Arabia,
    and run by the governments of Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Both of those
    countries have worked extreme insolence towards the Creator and God of
    the Bible, Jehovah, in banning religion formed by His Divine words – and
    gross, extremist hate and violation of the human rights of Jehovah's
    Witnesses in those lands. It is very dismaying to see these grotesque
    and unconscionable, hypocritical, harmful, threatening, and
    injustice-breeding human rights violations – beginning with exploitation
    and UNJUST usage of the the extraordinarily corrupt and
    wickedly-contrived label of the term "extremist"; to violate God-given
    freedom of speech of innocent people carrying on their peaceful worship
    of the Most High. (The Holy Scriptures themselves do refer to Jehovah
    the Creator and Universal Sovereign – YES – as being "the MOST HIGH,
    OVER ALL THE EARTH". [Psalm 83:18]) Those who worship Allah or other
    gods, or who are fervently godless, often have no tolerance for such
    speech of scriptural truth; and so they are looking for and trying to
    find ways – no matter how evil, no matter how destructive to God-given
    human rights they are – TO WORK THEIR EXTREMIST HATE upon innocent
    people who do what the Creator Jehovah and His Son Jesus Christ have
    told them to do, and SPEAK/ PREACH HIS SCRIPTURAL TRUTH TO THE WORLD
    (TRUTH WHICH HAS BENEFITED THOSE WHO HAVE LISTENED TO IT; and HAS MADE
    THE WORLD A BETTER, MORE PEACEFUL PLACE than it would be otherwise.) 

    THE WORLD JUST WATCHED A TEST CASE and DESTRUCTIVE RESULTS OF THE CORRUPT
    SCHEME OF LABELING PEACEFUL PERSONS – MERELY USING [God-given] FREEDOM
    OF SPEECH, to SPEAK UNPOPULAR and INCONVENIENT (to many) SCRIPTURAL
    TRUTH FROM JEHOVAH – AS BEING "EXTREMIST". (So, in fact, they were
    blasphemously LABELING GOD ALMIGHTY and JESUS CHRIST AS BEING
    "EXTREMISTS"!!) IT WAS USED AS A MEANS FOR THE WAR-MONGERING RUSSIAN
    ORTHODOX CHURCH and Russian heads of state TOGETHER with them – TO WORK
    THEIR EXTREMIST HATE, INJUSTICES, and EXTREME HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
    UPON INNOCENT (even weaponless and conscientious objectors to war)
    persons of the GLOBAL Jehovah's Witness religion in that land.

    So grotesquely ABSURD is this UNJUST PERSECUTION, based on the FAULT-FILLED and corrupt
    LABELING of innocent and peaceful persons as being "extremists", that
    the Russian government is currently PUNISHING a Jehovah's Witness
    CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTOR TO WAR as being "AN EXTREMIST"(declaring that he
    has no right to claim conscientious objector to war standing, because
    his religion has been banned as being "extremist"). 

    Clearly, if all persons were "extremists" in just this same way, THERE WOULD BE NO MORE
    WAR OR TERRORISM. 

    To highlight the level of grotesque and evil corruption and banal
    hypocrisy exercised by the Russian Orthodox church, in their working to
    have the Jehovah's Witnesses banned by the government of Russia; simply
    type the words "Russian Orthodox" and "army" together in a YouTube
    search box. There, one can see video after video, of Orthodox priests –
    in total violation of the whole-scriptural teachings of God Almighty and
    Jesus Christ themselves (such as, "YOU MUST NOT MURDER") – [falsely]
    "BLESSING" GUNS; a MISSILE; other weapons of WAR/ WAR apparatus; and
    SOLDIERS – outrightly DECEIVING THEM INTO WAR PARTICIPATION, LYING TO
    THEM, that God and Christ approve of and "BLESS" their decision TO GO
    MURDER and/ or BE KILLED, to FIGHT FOR THE "MOTHERLAND", [BLASPHEMOUSLY]
    "IN THE NAME OF GOD" and "CHRIST". The Russian (and other) Orthodox
    church shamelessly works this promotion, condonation and
    pseudo-"spiritual" SUPPORT OF WAR and MILITARY WITH EVIDENT FERVENT
    MADNESS. 

    As prophesied, it is the Jehovah-fighting, scripturally DEFIANT, doctrine
    of men- teaching FALSE religions which are the ones who are "ruining the
    earth"; working crimes against God and humanity; adulterizing
    themselves to the "kings of the earth", for mutual "empowerment" over
    peoples (doing what the "kings" want, instead of what God's words
    command); working heinous injustices upon many; MISLEADING the nations
    with SPIRITISM (the anti-scriptural spiritual LIE teachings of demons); 
    PERSECUTING persons who are loyal and true to Jehovah and Jesus – who
    obey and preach God's words to the world; and creating seas of spilled
    innocent blood, throughout history, by way of their murders and war
    mongering, "in the name of God." (See Revelation 18:23,24)

    So, those are your true, harmful "extremists" – those with an EXTREMIST HATE FOR GOD and His scriptural standards, which include non-violence, Justice, actual love, and peace. 

    Indeed, those working to slanderously label, fight against, or even ban and
    punish (as do Russia and some other countries [like China and North
    Korea]) the use of freedom of speech of Jehovah's Witnesses (speaking
    scriptural truth) are VIOLATING THE FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHTS OF THEIR
    FELLOW MAN; but they are also FIGHTING THE GREATEST HUMAN FORCE FOR
    INCREASED PEACE IN THIS WORLD – innocent person's preaching Jehovah God
    Almighty's own scriptural truth and Divine warning messages to their
    fellow human beings, just as God has instructed. 

    IF GOOGLE IS GOING TO SUCCUMB TO PRESSURE FROM EXTREMIST and HUMAN
    RIGHTS-VIOLATING HATERS OF JEHOVAH GOD the CREATOR, JESUS CHRIST, GOD'S
    SCRIPTURES, and LOYAL and TRUE MESSENGERS OF THEM (those of the global,
    true Jehovah's Witnesses); THEN GOOGLE WOULD BE FOOLISHLY DROPPING ITS
    STANDARDS, TO FIGHT AGAINST GOD and ALL THAT IS TRUE, GOOD, RIGHT, and
    LIFE-HELPING, LIFE-SAVING ALSO. GOOGLE WOULD THUS BE APPEASING EXTREME
    VIOLATORS OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF OTHERS – and supporting HATE,
    TERRORISM, UNJUST PERSECUTION, and other LIFE-RUINING and DESTRUCTIVE
    INJUSTICES AGAINST INNOCENT PEOPLE. IF THIS WOULD BE GOOGLE'S NEWFOUND,
    DEBASED WAY, THEN PERSONS WOULD DO WELL TO AVOID GOOGLE and YOUTUBE, and
    search for those still rightly supporting FREEDOM OF SPEECH to SPEAK
    TRUTH. HOPEFULLY, GOOGLE and YOUTUBE will do the right thing, which is to REJECT trending VIOLATION of the HUMAN RIGHT of FREEDOM of SPEECH, to speak TRUTH.
