Advertisers Shocked to Find Their Ads Run Before ISIL Videos on YouTube

Smooth skin, cold beer, a clean kitchen floor - all perfectly normal things to advertise to average consumers. But potential terrorists? Some major brands are less than pleased that their pre-roll commercials are running before Islamic State recruitment videos on Youtube.

Translated from Russian by Robin
The problems with the European Union’s basic ideology of course involve Germany’s position more specifically.
