YouTube has determined that the videos of a local Muslim cleric said to have influenced one of the London Bridge suspects in an attack that killed seven do not violate the company's policy.
The video-sharing site, which is owned by Google, has reviewed the channel of Ahmad Musa Jebril, 45, of Dearborn, and concluded that the content does not advocate violence. YouTube currently is not planning to remove the videos.
YouTube said it is committed to removing videos that contain hate speech or incitement to commit violent acts, or are uploaded by members of groups designated by the U.S. as terrorist groups. YouTube said Jebril's videos didn't incite violence, but were on Islamic teachings such as interpretations of Islam's holy book, the Quran, behavior in Islam, fasting, and what Jebril sees as the limits of Western medicine.
