Google to deliver wrong search results to would-be jihadis

Jihadi sympathisers who type extremism-related words into Google will be shown anti-radicalisation links instead, under a pilot scheme announced by the internet giant.

The new technology means people at risk of radicalisation will be presented with internet links which are the exact opposite of what they were searching for.

Dr Anthony House, a senior Google executive, revealed the pilot scheme in evidence to MPs scrutinising the role of internet companies in combating extremism.

    Wondered what Dr House was doing since the show folded.

    This is a good first step but Google should also make known such relevant and sensitive prototerrorist situational information to the national authorities.

    Given that Google has more money than god, offering to finance badly needed internment camps to house the thousands of very dangerous suspects turned up would also be the neighbourly thing to do.

    Or we could just nuke them.

  • What Does it Mean to be “Radicalized”?

    After each Islamic terror attack, politicians, the media, and apologists for Islam, try to make us feel better. They tell us the terrorists were “radicalized”, and they do not represent Islam.

    Even president Obama when giving his national address after the San Bernardino Islamic terror attack said the two killers had gone down the “dark path of radicalization.”

    Well, what exactly does it mean to be “radicalized”?

    It is really quite simple. It means the Islamic terrorists have read Islamic theology, and believed it.

    It may not be PC. And both Muslims and Islamic apologists will try to white-wash the facts. But Islamic theology is filled with hundreds of active passages preaching hatred and inciting violence against non-Muslims.

    Here’s a few.
    Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers”.
    Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah”.
    Quran (5:33) – “The punishment … they should be murdered or crucified”.
    Quran (8:65) – “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight”.
    Tabari (7:97) – “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.”
    Tabari (9:69) – “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us”
    Ibn Ishaq (327) – “Allah said, A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives”
    Bukhari (52:220) – “I have been made victorious with terror”

    There are hundreds more. (

    And to make matters worse, Islam has a complete mullah/mosque infrastructure in place preaching these hate passages.

    Remember. The next time you hear the word “radicalized” after a Islamic terror attack, the speaker is trying to white-wash one simple fact. Islamic theology teaches hate of non-Muslims.

    This coming from Google, is a stupid idea from the beginning.
    What if, in 3 years from now, the Sanders administration and Google decide to change the search results for people who previously accessed this site?

    • Very stupid idea as you say. And what did people do before Goggle came on the scene? They used other search engines — Yahoo, Altavista, MSN, etc. In fact there were dozens of other search engines and there still are.

      I never use Google — it’s totally blocked from my system. Not just because I don’t like the metadata collection, telemetry, tracking, advertisements, etc., but for practical reasons: Google already permeates every corner of the Internet — there practically isn’t a page you can view on the net without multiple hits on different Google servers. Which means Google is constantly taking up my bandwidth — LOTS OF BANDWIDTH. Since eliminating Google in addition to better privacy my pages load much faster — I don’t have to sit here waiting until the cows come home while Google collects all its data, contacts its advertisers, et cetera.

      what makes you think that they are not already doing things like that?

    Why do I suspect that any infidels seeking the truth about Islam will also be presented with internet links which are the exact opposite of what they were searching for?

    Well it seems to be working. Every search for donating money to trumps campaign sends me to sanders csmpaign page. -sarc

    If they get the marketing geniuses that are presently telling us it’s not cool to rape chicks in Ontario it’ll work for sure…

    Bye bye Jihad watch

  • Alain

    I am surprised they are not redirected to man-made climate change, because we are being now told it causes jihad.

    • Xavier

      Guns cause AGW which causes jihad. Complete society-wide disarmament is our only chance of survival.

  • Xavier

    Who decides who “potential jihadis” are? Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

  • Maggat

    Oh, just brilliant! This is one that can backfire, radicalized muslims today and tomorrow???????

  • Physics grad

    I wonder what else the untrustworthy left wing social engineers are already trying against us climate deniers and conservative terrorists?

    Perhaps it is time to drop google.
