YouTube Removes 'Flotilla Choir'

Ad Feedback

JERUSALEM, Israel - Citing copyright infringement, YouTube removed Latma's "We Con the Word" on Friday, despite the video having received over 3 million hits in one week.

YouTube claimed their decision came from Warren Chappel Music Inc., which owns the rights to "We Are the World," co-written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. The song was used the first time in a 1985 fundraiser for Africa.

Caroline Glick, editor-in-chief of Latma and deputy managing editor of The Jerusalem Post, rejected the explanation.

"YouTube's decision to pull Latma's hit son, "We Con the World," after 3 million viewers shows that Israel's enemies are afraid of us," Glick wrote on her website.

"Since they cannot refute our points, they are trying to silence us," she said.

By Saturday afternoon, the video had been reposted on WeJew and Ed Morrisey at Hot Air reposted it at Eyeblast.

Interested viewers can embed either copy and Glick predicted more websites would be forthcoming.
