The countries, and why they pulled the plug on YouTube:
- Pakistan: a movie trailer for Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders's upcoming film, saying that Islam is fascist and likely to incite violence against women and homosexuals
- Turkey: some video clips insulted, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, in someone's opinion.
- Thailand: video clips were offensive to Thailand's revered monarch, King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
- Morocco: someone posted videos that weren't complimentary about how Morocco treated the people of Western Sahara (Morocco's controlled that territory since 1975).
At the risk of applying moral equivalence, perhaps Americans shouldn't be very critical of the leaders who banned YouTube. After all, the United States enforces Hate Crime laws.
