Youtube removes top Iraqi blogger's account

Zeyad of Healing Iraq, father of the Iraqi blogsphere, have been posting amazing showing the extent of the sectarian violence on Youtube. These videos show Mahdi Army along with Iraqi police attacking Sunni districts and blowing up mosques. Another video shows Kurdish militias (the Pashmerga) executing a man on the street. Youtube closed his account and removed all his videos and the reason? ""repeated attempts to upload inappropriate videos".

These videos showed a reality on the ground in Iraq but Youtube is probably being pressured from elsewhere. I wonder how will the blogsphere react.
