Subject: Jewish google Removal !!

"When performing a search for the word "Jew" on google.. the first result is a site that has been notorious for being anti-semitic.. the site is called jewwatch.com .... Google is the # 1 search site and the fact that The first search result would yield an anti-semetic site is all too common in a growing era of increased Anti Semetism... In order for google to remove this They would need a petition of over 50,000 requests..., please scroll down to the bottom to leave your 'signature' ... Thanks..."

i want to say that I feel I've been misquoted.... I am a big believer in the 1st ammendment ... and I believe that a site like jewwatch(dot)com has a right to exist, regardless of how horriffic it is.... I just dont feel that a site like this should justify the #1 spot on Google.....The fact that Google is the biggest internet brand it acts like a 'seal of approval' and even though i am greatful that Google added a disclaimer to the results it provides, I feel that is not good enough......I believe that Google has an extra responsibility , something called Corporate Responsibility, where they have to be responsible for what they promote...The New York Times or CNN would never promote such material even though they have a legal right to....They are morally responsible... Google is in the same league as CNN and NY Times ...... And a simple disclaimer is not enough....A large percentage of Google searches are outsourced to Google's large corporate clients such as AOL, Netscape, and this disclaimer does not appear on these websites
