So google can cooperate with America with regards to security and other affairs yet cannot cooperate with the Muslims, typical corporation being an arm of the state.

This is the fundamental disconnect between a country and culture which respects and guarantees the basic natural right of free speech, and a country and culture which often censors or censors by omission, and doesn’t respect and guarantee the basic natural right of free speech.

Sadly, Egypt is going at full speed down the slippery slope to ridicule, zealotry and dysfunction.

Freedom of speech is a protected right in most of the western world, that will not change because someone is having a conniption fit over some rediculous video. Google is a company based in the US and complies by US laws and has done a marvelous job (for a corporation) protecting the freedoms of it’s users muslim or not, however it has shown it will not kowtow to pressure to infringe on others rights because someone gets upset as they didn’t get their way.

let’s just hope the people who made the film don’t get a fatwā aimed at them. Muslims are a bit pathetic that way. after Salman Rushdie wrote his book these nuts were firebombing book stores and they rioted in australia over something else they saw on youtube. I hope google never backs down. islam has to be chipped away at until these people realise that blindly worshipping a historically proven child-molester is only ever going to make them look like the worlds fools.
