    Hell, if you type 'Why can't...' into Google, the second result is 'Why can't I own a Canadian?'. Haven't we all asked ourselves that at some point in our lives?

    Point being, I wouldn't take it too seriously. :p:

    Like I said, Google loves a wee bit of censorship. Particularly of critics of Islam.
    Most of those cases are because of legal cases (in various countries) though. There was that case regarding a monkey-like picture of Michelle Obama a month or two ago, and that took ages to be censored. I think Google even released some kind of statement saying that it wasn't their job to censor results :dontknow:. There's the odd case of censorship anywhere though, but as a company, I think it's rather minimal for Google. I may be wrong though :p:.

    Why not? They can't cover every possible combination but when someone puts in a complaint for a particular set of search suggestions, they haven't been beyond deleting information in the past.
    but surely they'd cover one's that are as obvious as "mohammed was" if they were going to go to the effort of doing it for "islam is"
