Egypt to take YouTube off the air because of anti-Islam video

If in Brazil Justice decided to keep the video “Innocence of the Muslims” on the air (learn more), in Egypt the story was different.

A court in the country ordered YouTube to be suspended for a month on Saturday, 9, because Google’s video site hosted the film – which, according to local justice, insults the prophet Mohammed.

The 13-minute video would just be the trailer for a larger film that portrays the prophet as an ordinary guy with sexual deviations and, last September, would have caused a series of revolts in Arab countries.

According to the Reuters, Egypt’s telecommunications authority said it would comply with the decision as soon as it received a copy of the verdict, while Google said it had not received any formal notice of the case.
