GOOGLE REPLIES TO URUKNET ~~ WITH LIES

Just hours ago Uruknet’s Administrator received the following response from Google….regarding being taken off their News links….

Hi Enzo,
Thank you for your note. We received numerous complaints from users about your site and after reviewing it we’ve found that we could no longer include it in Google News. We currently don’t include sites that are primarily news aggregators, and we weren’t able to find any stories on your site that weren’t from outside sources. We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may cause. Please be assured that we’ll log
your site for future consideration should our requirements change.

Thanks for your interest in Google News.

Regards, The Google Team

We currently don’t include sites that are primarily news aggregators….. Lie Number ONE

we weren’t able to find any stories on your site that weren’t from outside sources. ….. Lie Number TWO

Google.news indexes HUNDREDS of new aggregators and Uruknet posts many original articles, that weren’t at all taken from outside sources…..

Google.news does index many news aggregators and even many blogs and satirical websites.

What Google News is eliminating are sites that present a pro Palestinian point of view or an anti U.S. in Iraq involvement point of view. It has nothing to do with original articles but it’s all about content… only content that is approved by the zionists that run Google will be approved for publication.

The letters to Google protesting their decision must still be sent. They claim to have received ‘numerous complaints’… let’s make that THOUSANDS OF COMPLAINTS… Do your bit…
Here is Uruknet’s response to the letter received….

Google’s Censors Reply At Last!

URUKNET

“The Israel 60 Birthday Website will combat Palestine, Iran, Nazi and Syria sites which have started to attack Israel’s 60th birthday by enjoying a stronger search engine optimization (SEO) marketing and public relations ranking on Google and appearing throughout the Net using all of the tools of Web 2.0.” The Israeli News Agency.

May 7, 2008

After more than ten days and many e-mails we sent, Google News replies at last:

Hi Enzo,

We thank The Google Team for their kind reply, however:

1) The Google Team does not say which kind of complaints they received and from whom;

2) The Google Team writes: “we weren’t able to find any stories on your site that weren’t from outside sources”. Probably The Google Team didn’t look up carefully since Uruknet publishes regularly original articles ( just a few minutes ago we posted this one) . Moreover, many articles we publish are sent us by their authors for publication and Uruknet links to their blogs and websites for fairness.

3) The Google Team writes “We currently don’t include sites that are primarily news aggregators.” This is patently false because Google News does include a lot of websites that are primarily or exclusively news aggregators. While a few of them hide the original source, most of them openly quote the link to the original source as we do. Of course we don’t name these websites because we don’t want to give them problems with Google, but one can easily find them on Google News ;

4) Finally, being this the forth time just in a couple of years Google News stopped indexing Uruknet.info, we acknowledge that every single time Google gave us a different reason.

    Look at the right hand corner of that Israeli site: “Sponsored by Crisis Communications.” Fitting.

    Isn’t Google News in itself a news aggregator?

    The speedy form didn’t work. Uruknet is a valued source of info for me, as is Google. It seems to me Google is increasing it’s hostility to anti-israel information. We all should prepare for the eventuality of World War and life without the internet. Mail, shortwave, telephone, fax, networking. If McCain is elected it will soon be too late.

    We don’t need Google anyway.

    Use ixquick.com for searches and hushmail.com for email.

    This is just the latest of several reports I’ve read about Google’s propensity to block sites too far Left for Google’s tastes. Couple that with Google’s perfect lack of respect for customer privacy, and it’s a no-brainer: Google doesn’t play fair. So why should we play with them? I basically stopped using Google’s search engine over a year ago and haven’t missed it one bit.

    Just how much of this INTERNET of the MIC do you random net folks think you are allowed to use? 20% 30% perhaps 40% what more less?

    You DON’T get even 1% of the internet. Your msg is at the whim of this gargantuan ANTI_INFORMATION_CONTROL_NETWORK and guess what you will never change this.

    You will not lay glove one on the NET and the powers that run it. GET well used to it folks. You will not overcome the MIL net until you close it down and remake it an OPEN network for all. This secret net crap is doomed to fall and the messing around i have seen in recent years have just compounded the need to halt the Military Industrial Complex and it’s prize propaganda tool the INTERNET.

    Sounded good once the “Ithe internet” but the real thing is being used to enslave and kill.

    I can see a land without all this WiFi,Wimax,GSM,CDMA,Bluetooth or any other mass RF radiation being emitted. And boy is the general Joe Smith is going to be boo hoo boo hoo about the whole loss and all the time not get that ti may be the best thing they lost the TECH.

    Life is a bitch America. And life for others NOT America has a very loud ‘BITCHY’ smell about it. Loss of TECH can be a reality just as a B-52 was loaded with Nukes ‘By accident’ then flown WHO knows where for some time then lands.

    Well Push just may need some SHOVE at this point… Just to get the REAL peace rolling along.

    The internet is just a more compelling version of the MainStreamMedia machine with select amounts of access therein because of the Military need to have YOU upload all the ammo it needs to protect it self from ANY attack.

    You will not be allowed to bring down the B.E.A.S.T. for it is not going to give you any tools to kill itself will it.

    Only in not feeding it will you win. Keep the info going in BUT do it with a “Tax there systems with lots of encrypted transfers of EVERYTHING” sorts of Thinking. Make them work for it if they want it.

    Stop the need to be afraid of these losers and feel the need to regain this network WE all built for EDUCATION not for WAR.

    Secret this and that works for them make it WORK for us!

    Google workes with totalitarian governments (China, Russia, US, etc) to filter information deemed ‘dangerous’.

    They’ve helped send political activists to jail for the crime of speaking freely…WHY TRUST ANYTHING THEY SAY OR DO?

    Below is a comment I just made at Common Dreams, in a story by Joe Brewer, who used to be with Rockridge Nation, which is references in his story.

    It seems there is a team of zionists who search out references to Uruknet and then make a raft of complaints about the writer to the web site where they are found.

    BTW, speaking of getting messages out, and the reference to Rockridge Institute’s web site prompted me to review when I was sent an email by the web master asking me to, essentially, shut up — that they had been getting complaints from other users. I checked — it was a few days after I had given a link to Uruknet. I was also banned from the Huffington Post and Alternet after referencing that site (which has many anti-zionist and pro-Palestinian stories. The site has also been dropped from Google’s news index.

    Controlling information flow is underlying context of all the framing and spreading of lies — not just about the stimulus, but about every issue.
