Hate-Site: "Proposal to place Jew Watch back to #1 on Google"

Anti-Semites are calling for a Google-bombing campaign to re-raise the Google-ranking of the "Jew Watch" hate-site. The discussion can be found at the following URL ("Stormfront White Nationalist Community")


(Not a link, for obvious reasons)

I would like to make a proposal to fellow Stormfront members in an honorable eActivism effort. ...

Please, this is an honorable thing to do, it takes a little effort, but with all the support of [Stormfront] and it's friends, we can do this to help spread the truth ! The Jews have the power of the media, so we need to take it back from them and defeat them. Out of 3.7 million pages that come up from typing the word "Jew" into Google, Jew Watch *used* to be #1 !! Let's take it back !

And another poster, in part:

They've used Blogs against us, if you know any friends that participate in "blogging" simply advocate them to our cause. This ball will get rolling.

Whenever anyone talks of Google representing the opinion of the web, it's important to keep in mind that such an opinion may represent only the activities of special-interest groups.

All's fair in love and war, right? Better they Googlebomb then firebomb synagogues. But are we supposed to be Joogling again? I just typed "Jew" into Google btw and wiki was #1. Jew Watch nowhere in sight.
