A man who appears to be a Chabad hasid from France brutally beats his approximately 12-year-old daughter – who seems used to being beaten by her father – at the entrance to the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem.
Update 10:20 am CDT – This is security camera video from the Westen Wall. It is publicly available in Israe, has NO copyright attachedl and, as you can see below, it was aired on Israel's Channel 2 News.
That didn't stop Chabad from having the first YouTube posting of it removed for "violating YouTube's terms of service."
This is another example of YouTube/Google's completely unethical censorship.
And it is another clear reason why the US Department of Justice's antitrust division must break Google up into tiny pieces.
I left the pulled video in place so you can see what YouTube did.
Here is a link to Israel's Channel 2 report, which contains the video – which, again, is public property and has no copyright.
I suggest you call you Congressperson and your US Senator's to urge them to ask the Justice Department to investigate YouTube/Google. Also show them the censored IDF videos from Operation Cast Lead.
If you recognize this person, please show the video to this man's rabbi and to the police and child welfare where he lives. Your obligation is to protect the lives of that child, his other children and his wife.
Do not accept excuses like, "He had a bad day," or "He's been under a lot of pressure lately," or "He's done teshuva."
And if his rabbi gives you any of those excuses, know that your rabbi is incompetnt at best and criminal at worst.
Here's what the person who uploaded the video wrote to describe it:
עבריין 'חרדי' (צרפתי) מכה את בתו בת ה-12 בברוטליות, בכותל המערבי לעיני עוברים ושבים, וסיכן את חייה,
אנשים כאלה צריך לסרס!!!

Update 3:00 am CDT – Israel's Channel 2 is reporting that the incident happened two weeks ago. The man is French. Israeli police arrest him. He was deported shortly after. Israeli police contacted French police and Interpol so the man can be watched by them.
