YouTube retracts rejection of Palestine Christmas video

Subject: Re: Christmas-Palestine Video Attacked
Dear Activists and Bloggers,
We would like to inform you that Youtube has indeed lifted the restrictions from the Palestine Christmas Video. We are not sure what prompted the site administration to revisit its decision, but we are certain that the support we received from activists and surfers ‘facilitated’ it.
The commotion that we were all able to create, though not too loud, was enough to actually make a very small difference and win a very minor battle. But this is how the big and long struggles are won: one minor victory after another.
We believe that the tide is turning. We call upon all of you to preserve and increase the number of small battles won, no matter how insignificant they may seem. At the end of the day, it is those victories that set the pace, direction and define the outcome of this long struggle for justice.
We would like to thank everyone who supported us, by posting the video and/or the call for support, by writing something on the subject, by forwarding the message we sent out....
In solidarity,
