Islam is…


Google has been accused of spinelessly censoring its search results to appease the religion of peace, as typing “Islam is” will yield no results, as compared to a wide variety of frequently disparaging results for other, more warlike religions.

Such autosuggestions are thought to be automatically generated, but subject to the utopian “Google filter” which ensures troublesome words Google would rather not acknowledge the existence of, such as “penis” or “rape,” are excluded, in what is probably the same mindset which ensures that Google News carries no “crime” section.

Such results as are allowed are often taken as zeitgeist-like indications of the dubious things users search for.

Google for its part claims this is a bug, though evidently one they are none too concerned about fixing as it has been known about for some time now.
