Europeans set to give Internet control to foreign extremists

Are European countries about to grant foreign extremists control over Internet content?

Already in Europe there are debates about banning websites that allegedly endorse terrorism. But who decides? Resistance movements that oppose American and Australian actions in Iraq and Afghanistan? Elected Palestinian parties such as Hamas backed by millions of Arabs? The powerful Lebanese group Hezbollah, regarded as a terrorist organisation in many Western capitals, but lionised across the Muslim world?

Nope, that's best-selling author Antony Loewenstein trying to say that the exact opposite of what he actually writes.

Loewenstein is currently spreading his message, whatever it might be, in New Zealand.
