Google blocking right-libertarians' account for controversial anti-Islamist graph

From Gary Julian: 

The NL Times out of the Netherlands reports, 

Google drops Wilders' Anti-Islam Gmail account
Google has deactivated the islamsticker@gmail Gmail account politician Geert Wilders was using to spread his anti-Islam stickers. The deactivation was probably prompted by the many complaints Wilders’ umpteenth anti-Islam initiative had prompted. 
It was the politician himself who reported via Twitter on Boxing Day that his account had been closed. “Unbelievable; Google just blocked the account. It seems Mohammed Rabbae’s complaint was successful,” he tweeted. Rabbae had complained at Google that Wilders was abusing its service. 
His complaint –on behalf of the National Council of Moroccans- had been among many complaints that were lodged against Wilders after he came out with his anti-Island sticker a week ago; it read “Islam is a lie. Mohamed is a criminal. The Koran is poison.”

if the the owners of Facebook, Yahoo, or Googles had to follow their “Terms & Conditions” on their product, they would be ban from using their own product. Which also violates our freedom of speech
