American sharia: Google bows to Muslim pressure, changes search results to conceal criticism of Islam and jihad

42

I speak from first hand experience. Geller Report has been scrubbed from google search results. 15 years of over forty thousands posts. Poof! Gone. The leftist masters of the universe are, without our consent, arbitrarily and capriciously abridging and surrendering our most basic fundamental freedoms. The internet is the last frontier in the war on free speech. We cannot and will not cede the field.

Google bows to Muslim pressure, changes search results to conceal criticism of Islam and jihad

“Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as ‘jihad’, ‘shariah’ and ‘taqiyya’ now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results.”

“Reputable” according to whom? “Questionable” according to whom? Google is bowing to pressure from Muslim such as Omar Suleiman without considering whether those who are demanding that the search results be skewed in a particular direction might have an ulterior motive. Could it be that those who are pressuring Google want to conceal certain truths about Islam that they would prefer that non-Muslims not know?

This is a real possibility, but of course Google executives would have to study Islam themselves in order to determine whether or not these Muslims who are pressuring them are misleading them, and that’s not going to happen. Still, they could have done a bit more due diligence, and made some efforts to determine whether those being tarred as “hate groups” really deserved the label, whether the Southern Poverty Law Center was really a reliable and objective arbiter of which groups were and weren’t “hate groups,” and whether the information that Google was suppressing was really inaccurate. Instead, Google seems to have swallowed uncritically everything Omar Suleiman and the others said.

Suleiman, however, still isn’t satisfied: “One leading activist in favor of Google modifying its results told Anadolu Agency he noticed the updated search results and thanked the company for its efforts but said ‘much still needs to be done.’” He claimed that Google has a responsibility to “combat ‘hate-filled Islamophobia’ similar to how they work to suppress extremist propaganda from groups like Daesh and al-Qaeda.”

This should have made Google executives stop and think. The Islamic State (Daesh) and al-Qaeda slaughter people gleefully and call openly for more mass murders. There is no firm evidence that anyone has ever been killed by a “hate-filled Islamophobe,” and the claim that Hamas-linked CAIR and the SPLC make in this article, that this supposed “Islamophobic” rhetoric has led to a rise in hate crimes against Muslims, is supported by not a scintilla of evidence. Suleiman is equating critical words with murderous deeds, and Google should have realized at that point that he had an agenda and wasn’t being honest.

“Suleiman said Google should differentiate between ‘criticism of Islam and hate-filled Islamophobia’, emphasizing the religion should not be infringed upon.”

That’s not clear. He apparently is saying that there is acceptable criticism of Islam that is not “hate-filled Islamophobia,” but if that is so, then the religion can be “infringed upon,” at least by this legitimate criticism, no? Or if the claim that Islam must not be “infringed upon” means that it cannot be criticized, why is that so of Islam but not any other religion?

Suleiman says: “I don’t think Google has a responsibility to portray Muslims positively. I think Google has a responsibility to weed out fear-mongering and hate groups but I don’t want Google to silence critique of Islam, or critique of Muslims.”

The problem with this is that neither Suleiman, nor Hamas-linked CAIR, nor anyone else who has ever said that there was a distinction between legitimate criticism of Islam and “hate-filled Islamophobia” has ever identified anyone he thinks is a legitimate critic of Islam who is not “Islamophobic.” Over 16 books now, as well as thousands of articles and over 45,000 blog posts, I have attempted to present a reasonable, documented, fair and accurate criticism of Islam and explanation of the jihad doctrine. Nevertheless, I’ve been tarred as a purveyor of “hate-filled Islamophobia” by groups and individuals that have never given my work a fair hearing, but have read it only to search of gotcha!-quotes they could wrench away from their obvious benign meaning in order to claim I was saying something hateful. And this isn’t just me — this happens to anyone and everyone who dares to utter a critical word about Islam or jihad, wherever they are on the political spectrum.

This experience, reinforced countless times over a decade and a half, makes me extremely skeptical when Omar Suleiman says that he doesn’t want Google to silence critique of Islam. If he could produce some critique of Islam that he approved of, my skepticism might lessen. But he won’t, and can’t. It seems much more likely that he pressured Google to skew its results so as to deep-six criticism of Islam, but knowing that he couldn’t tell them that he was trying to bring Google into line with Sharia blasphemy laws forbidding criticism of Islam, he told them instead that he wasn’t against criticism of Islam as such, but only against “hate-filled Islamophobia.”

Mr. Suleiman, if you and your colleagues hadn’t spent years tarring rational criticism of Islam that was accurate and presented in good faith as “hate-filled Islamophobia,” I might have believed you. But as one of your primary victims, I don’t.

I discuss the Islamic supremacist initiative to compel the West to accept Sharia blasphemy laws under the guise of stamping out “hate speech,” an initiative that is now galloping forward and achieving immense success, in my new book The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Free Speech (and Its Enemies).

“US Muslim groups welcome changes to Google results,” by Michael Hernandez, Anadolu Agency, July 26, 2017:

Queries about Islam and Muslims on the world’s largest search engine have been updated amid public pressure to tamp down alleged disinformation from hate groups.

However, activists who have worked to bring about the changes say more work remains.

In the past, users on Google seeking information about the religion or its adherents would be presented prominently with what many criticized as propaganda from hate groups.

That has recently changed.

Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results.

Google did not confirm to Anadolu Agency the changes but said it is constantly updating its algorithms.

The search giant referred the agency to a recent blog post in which it said it was working to push back on what it called “offensive or clearly misleading content”.

“To help prevent the spread of such content for this subset of queries, we’ve improved our evaluation methods and made algorithmic updates to surface more authoritative content,” it said.

Combatting Islamophobia

One leading activist in favor of Google modifying its results told Anadolu Agency he noticed the updated search results and thanked the company for its efforts but said “much still needs to be done”.

Imam Omar Suleiman, who has been at the forefront of efforts to combat misleading information about his faith on the web, argued that Google and companies like it have a responsibility to combat “hate-filled Islamophobia” similar to how they work to suppress extremist propaganda from groups like Daesh and al-Qaeda.

Suleiman said Google should differentiate between “criticism of Islam and hate-filled Islamophobia”, emphasizing the religion should not be infringed upon.

“Google does not need to silence criticism of Islam and honest discussions about Islam, but heavily funded hate groups that are able to work the SEOs to get their websites showing up on the first, second page – I think that’s deeply problematic,” the popular imam said, referring to search engine optimization — the way in which websites are able to improve their placement in search engine results.

The task of sorting out legitimate criticism or debate about Islam from misleading information will not be easy, particularly in societies that value freedom of speech — a fact Suleiman, who is the founder and president of the Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research, acknowledged.

Google told Anadolu Agency it does not seek to remove content from its platform simply because it is unsavory or unpopular, but does its best to prevent hate speech from appearing.

One way it is working to improve on the effort is by providing users with a mechanism in autofill suggestions that would allow users to alert the company when an offensive term appears.

Amid a nationwide increase in hate crimes targeting Muslims, the effort to combat misinformation is more imperative than ever, Muslim group said.

Hate crimes against Muslims

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the U.S.’s largest Muslim advocacy group, said it tracked a 584 percent increase in anti-Muslim hate crimes from 2014 to 2016.

The group is not the only one to find such numbers. The Southern Poverty Law Center tracks hate incidents and groups in the U.S. and said it found hate groups increasing in number for the second consecutive year in 2016, fueled largely by a near-tripling of anti-Muslim groups.

“The growth has been accompanied by a rash of crimes targeting Muslims,” the center said in its annual report.

Information people receive from a variety of sources — television, radio and the Internet — no doubt plays a role in fomenting hatred among some of those who perpetrate attacks but could also be used to stop them.

“We are seeing a rise in hate crimes towards Muslims, and there is a direct connection between this demonization of Islam and Muslims and the hate crimes that are being perpetuated against Muslims in the United States,” Suleiman said.

Still, he maintained that such voices should not be censored but “should not be featured prominently as authoritative voices.”

Suleiman added: “I don’t think Google has a responsibility to portray Muslims positively. I think Google has a responsibility to weed out fear-mongering and hate groups but I don’t want Google to silence critique of Islam, or critique of Muslims…

    Death to sharia!

    Google that!

    • Dick Bates

      And DEATH TO ISLAM !!!

  • Terry M

    It is time break up Google like the government did with other corporate monopolies in the past…

    • No, what you can do is stop using Google. I haven’t used them in years.

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    The bad guys have been busy scrubbing the internet, Wiki for example.

  • Halal Bacon

    anything on “how to divorce a goat”

  • ama

    Another very important bit –

    The website – Wikislam, which has literally every islamic topic covered, almost never shows up in the first 10 google results. It has even that topics that very few other websites have, and yet, less relevant results would show up, but the most relevant result from wikilsam, won’t.

      You have a typo. Try this:

        Do you know who David Moss is?

            Actually you’re not Australian so you couldn’t be the guy I’m thinking of.

  • Nefarious420

    Hey atleast Google still allows Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism to get to billing in searches

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    This has been true for some time. Try googling Muhammad Ali and antisemitism or racism. Then try doing a similar search from duckduckgo.
    I won’t be using google for anything, ever, again.

    • Daniel FX Dravot

      I use startpage combined with Ghostery. Manually enabled Disqus. Zero tracking and have yet to detect anything PC related.
      https://www.startpage.com/.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        I’ve been using ublock and flash control and duckduckgo. I was forced to use ublock and flash control because some of the HTML5 ads on pamelageller.com were grabbing focus so that it was impossible to read the articles because you would have to constantly scroll down when the ad grabbed focus.
        Considering the fact that net-neutrality has been overthrown, it’s probably an even better idea to use a proxy server.

        • Daniel FX Dravot

          I liked duckduckgo and used it for some time. Then FLASH was suddenly, as in your case, highjacking even the DRUDGE page. In Firefox, after updating Adblocker and sending a couple screen shots to Firefox support, it went away. It will be baaaaaaack… I have a mothballed Win2K Enterprise server. Perhaps I should drag it out and see if. it can be converted to a proxy in Linux. (If it converts to islam I’ll kill it.) Win2K server is no longer supported. I hate Microsoft, esp. Win10 and MS Office 2016.

          Loved Word Perfect for DOS and Quattro Pro, also DOS. Used them for years just for spite.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            I don’t think it was flash in my case. I think it was HTML5, which has its own unique form of video.

    • Benny Rothman

      DuckDuckGo ………best safe search engine……

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    It’s interesting to note that if you google anything high-tech the FIRST result in google is almost always a muslum run website.

    • Daniel FX Dravot

      Examples, please.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        Not always the first result, but frequently in the top 6. The site is called wccftech.

        • Daniel FX Dravot

          Thank you very much indeed for the update.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            The thing is wccftech isn’t considered reputable — AT ALL.

  • Poppey

    Let’s float this, IF saying you want to “express legitimate criticism of Islam” is going to get you banned from the air waves, don’t batter yourself into foam, go around it, try saying you would like to ” express some small concerns about the consequences of certain religious observances ” in others.

    The English language is sometimes better used as a rapier than a bludgeon.

    Heads you win, tales they lose.

    • solange9

      True and well said, but, since things have gotten this far, me thinks that bludgeon is just what may be needed. People need to wake up and FAST!

  • At least we do have other browsers available and minds.com for an alternate social site. We will not comply. Haven’t used Chrome for some time now anyway.

  • Mike

    Of course, these maneuvers will only strengthen the resolve of those of us who understand, and provide more evidence to make the case. It is inevitable that the tipping point will come, regardless of the machinations of these monstrous elites.

  • Alleged Comment

    I don’t use Google, so what they do does not bother me. However, that may bother them.

  • Larenzo1

    This is why I will not use the google search engine.

    Islam is founded upon the denial or rational thought. Iindeed, Islam is founded upon eternal enmity to rational thought & “rational criticism”, and to the glorification of faith, superstition and Satanic demonology.
    Read the Koran, it’s glaringly obvious.

    Robert R. Reilly wrote “The Closing of the Muslim Mind: How Intellectual Suicide Created the Modern Islamist” in 2010, in case anyone wants a detailed explanation of the hostility Islam has to reality & logic & honesty.

    The hope that ANY Muslim would respect “rational criticism” as expressed in this statement

    Mr. Suleiman, if you and your colleagues hadn’t spent years tarring
    rational criticism of Islam that was accurate and presented in good
    faith as “hate-filled Islamophobia, ….”

    that hope must be vanishingly small. But for those of us still living in the real world, who still have a firm grip on reality, it does server to illustrate the unbridgeable difference between East and West, the respect that the West has for reality & logic & science & truth & honesty on the one hand…, and the unquestioning faith that Islam has in superstition and black magic and violence and terror and devil worship on the other.

    For any Muslim who really understands the implications of his belief in Islam to respect “rational criticism”, he would first have to renounce Islam.

    The really disappointing thing is that the dhimmified weak minded pusillanimous leaders at Google have so little understanding of the foundations of Western Civilization that made the success of Google possible in the first place that they go along with, and bow down to, and submit to this “anti-rational” Islamic superstition.

  • MaxEffectUSA

    Try using “Duck, Duck Go” or “Invisy” search engines. They do not track either.

  • glnman

    Never use Google for anything. Try Startpage or DuckDuckGo for search engines instead.

  • Benny Rothman
  • Evil Liberal

    Simple. Stop using Google.

  • jeme rappel

    Google also controls what you see when you try to search. For example, I’ve been interested in the Justine Damond killing in Minnesota, and have searched it in news and other categories several times. Yet it never appears in any of the drop down suggestions, even if I type “justine damon” With most non-Muslim topics, I don’t have to type more than two letters of a topic before it shows up on the drop down. Time to search for a new search engine!

  • Mark Huber

    We need to have Google broken into ten or more anti-monopolist companies the way ATT was broken up, or, Standard Oil was much earlier. Also, Facebook, Twitter, et al. Why are the Republicans covering for them?

    • Mike McCormack

      They are not really covering for them. I believe there is information on every politcan and that “information ” will come to light if the process of the establishment is not honored .

      Note the massive pressure on Trump.. most spineless GOP esiablishment would of plead guilty for holding an elevator door for a Russian .. Trump laughs and fights back.

      It’s about time! It was painful watching GWB get stabbed and mocked by the media every day. How can you stand for someone that does not stand for themselves.

  • Mike McCormack

    Wish there was a way to “Neuter” an Android smartphone from it’s Google components that spy and censor the internet. Like some third party .app download that steps in between the end user.. ” Hey this flashlight app wants to know where you are .. what do you want to do? a) show true location b) tell it to go to hell c) Tell it I’m in Abu Dabi .”

  • solange9

    I can’t even say how furious this makes me. Whenever I do a search, I feel like I am living in a fascist state, you know, sort of like the UK. We must continue to fight back or lose our freedoms.

  • gscott

    Use duckduckgo search engine. Get real results. And they won’t track you!

  • Toy Pupanbai

    Nice or Nasty, their one aim is to replace you and everything that is your Cultural Heritage!
    They are your mortal enemies!
    Cancer, just waiting to metastasize, is an excellent analogy!
    For any Western culture to survive, it must first be Legally declared, that the tyrannical Theocratic Ideology, Islam/Mohammedanism, is not a RELIGION.
    N.B, Neither is it a RACE!
