    Search engine Google has been accused of censoring its results after users discovered it never suggests search terms when it comes to Islam.

    In a time-saving feature the internet phenomenon, whose motto is 'don't be evil', helpfully suggests common searches as people type in what they are looking for.

    For example, if you type in 'Christianity is' in the search bar a whole range of options flash up including controversial suggestions such as 'Christianity is fake' and 'Christianity is a cult'.

    But anyone typing in a similar phrase which replaces Christianity with Islam gets no suggestions at all.

    The anomaly has led some to conclude the firm, famed for its democratic approach to the world of information it controls, is censoring the search results.

    Google's normal search suggestions originate from searches made around the world, adverts and known web pages.

    The company also says on its website: 'We try to filter out suggestions that include pornographic terms, dirty words, and hate and violence terms. If you encounter a term that should not be suggested, please let us know by posting in the Google Web Search Help Forum.'

    A Google spokesman claimed the strange absence of results was a software problem.

    He said: "This is in fact a bug and we're working to fix it as quickly as we can.'

    Google also makes suggestions which are in the future tense. Search for 'Islam will' and the results are very balanced, including suggestions such as 'Islam will be destroyed' and 'Islam will take over the world'.

    It's amazing, this bug is unstoppable - it has also spread to Google's subsidiary, Youtube:

    This is one of the very real threats of not staring down Islam going berserk and being brittle, reacting violently to every perceived criticism - people, and companies become scared and start to self-censor. So the violence and threats get the result they want - never say anything we don't like or face the consequences.

    The more Islam in any society, the less freedom, the more fear, and the more violence.

    It's obviously not a bug, but a policy of Google and Youtube which google also owns, to cower in the face of Islamic aggression. That's why also, jihadi and Taliban videos are all over Youtube, whereas, Coalition war videos often get taken down as 'hate material'. The governing body of the Taliban has its own page on Youtube, when the Youtube servers are in the US and the US is at war with them.

    Why? Because angering the US government won't get anyone at Google killed, whereas, angering Islam just might - or so they figure. The problem is, when one cowers to threats, it does not lead to respect, it does not lead to peace - it just leads to ever more demands.

    I am, in a sense, but for the people - not for me. I am not that important. If this is permitted to reign unchecked, darkness the likes we have not seen since the fall of the Roman Empire will descend on this planet.

    The Western world is wholly unprepared to meet the global jihadi threat. And from the discussions I've had on here and elsewhere with Indians, they seem just as unprepared.

    Really? The same jihadi forces that invaded India in the 12th century? Lashka El Toiba in Mumbai? Invasion of France in 732? Invasion of Spain in 711? Invasion of Austria in 1683? Attacks on US shipping in the 1780s leading to the Barbary Wars in 1801? The West has been responsible for a lot of Islamic attacks spanning almost 1400 years. If only the West had been more responsible Islam would not have been provoked into rampaging all over the Middle East, India, Africa, Asia ..and now Europe.

    Our people are very unprepared, naive and foolish when it comes to Islam, I'll grant that. I have faith though that the tide is turning.
