Hi apologiamixer,This is absurd, of course. As you can see in the video, it contains no “violent or graphic content that appears to be posted in a shocking, sensational, or disrespectful manner.” Nor does it incite violence or encourage dangerous activities. But it does contain truths about the jihad threat that powerful people today don’t want you to know.
As you may know, our Community Guidelines describe which content we allow – and don’t allow – on YouTube. Your video The History of Jihad review by Dale Brown was flagged to us for review. Upon review, we’ve determined that it may not be suitable for all viewers and it has been placed behind an age restriction.
Video content restrictionsIf a video contains violent or graphic content that appears to be posted in a shocking, sensational, or disrespectful manner, it’s less likely to be allowed on YouTube. We also don’t allow content that’s intended to incite violence or encourage dangerous activities. We review content on a case by case basis and will only make limited exceptions for appropriate educational, documentary, artistic, and scientific contexts, where the purpose of posting is clear.
In light of this, we ask that uploaders post as much information as possible in the title and description of their video to help us and viewers understand the primary purpose of the video. Please note, even with this additional context, it’s still not acceptable to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational, or disrespectful and this type of content is prohibited on YouTube.
