A recent report conducted by United Nations is urging governments to discuss and implement surveillance regulations in order to prevent terrorists communicating online.
The United Nations claimed that although everyone recognizes the threat posed by terrorists use of the web, there is still no strategy to address this problem. It is said that the web can be used in many ways to support terrorism, for example to post propaganda, to train, to finance, and to plan. The United Nations even mentioned the platforms used by terrorists to arrange the acts, among which there were Facebook and YouTube.
In the meantime, the Internet should help fight terrorism rather than support it – for instance, to collect intelligence to prevent acts of terrorism, or to build a case for their prosecution. The UN report also acknowledges that too stringent anti-terrorism measures can cause problems with privacy and human rights, like tighter controls on Internet service providers to restrict access to content.
The UN suggests that member states should agree over retention of information by broadband provider, while policies vary across the world. The suggested strategy can involve developing a universal regulatory framework for regulations on all broadband providers.
At the same time, the report calls for greater use of surveillance in order to gather more data about the suspects and recommends for the governments to create clearer guidance on how private sectors ISPs help undertake electronic monitoring and surveillance on public communications.
The privacy and civil liberties campaign outfits agree that the web is a global entity, and such must be the action to address terrorism. Nevertheless, the report of the United Nations conflicts with the approach the UK’s Home Office currently employs. The privacy groups point out that preserving the data once someone is alleged of being involved in crime is a more proportionate measure than retaining data on everyone in the web just in case. In addition, the UN report recognized the role of judicial authorizations which lack from the UK’s policy at all.
The industry experts believe that this report is just a part of a complex debate, and while China is sitting on the security council of the United Nations, it can hardly have balanced civil liberties on the web.

|So funny who'd ever believe Russia or Red China cares to fight terrorism both are huge never ending sponcers of terrorism plus who'd ever trust the U.N. would be neck and neck race to say whats the worse thing in the world the U N or the u.s. congress . .|

|# 3) Who is that idiot Kikekiller; lets see him post a link need a good laugh . . .|
|State sponsored terrorism is not called state for nothing,the United nations are guilty for more death ,destruction and murder than any one terrorist organisation and its not the Chinese or Russia I am talking about over 1.5 million deaths can be attributed to Americas intervention in the middle east alone in the past 10 years in the supposed war on terrorists and truth be told they trained Bin Laden and the mujahadin who later became Al-Qaeda,so who are the real terrorists,hypocrisy run amok.|
|If in any doubt google state sponsored terrorism and see its governments|
that are at fault not the internet or the WWW so leave the internet policing to ISP`s and take your fascist NSA /CIA Cyber units elsewhere,a free internet unfettered by fascist corporate States is what we the people want.
|Kikekiller you are funny,I understood the yanks were Zionists and supported Israel,there are some really funny people out there listened to a podcast from ET the other week and there were American red necks howling About Zionists and Jewish conspiracy, I am sure there are corporate fascists like Bloomberg the mayor of New york and 4th richest man in America who have their finger in the pie as regards world politics and others who are world leaders and in the bilderbergers all who control more of the world behind the scenes than America alone ,but not all jewish or Zionists as claimed,lmao.|
|It might be of Interest that one of the few world leaders to decline the Bilderbergs invites which is sent to every countries leaders was Margeret Thatcher since she believed that any organisation outside of the UN and the UK Government which was not an open forum led to behind the scenes manipulation by foreign government's and was detrimental rather than productive,no foreign powers should collude in private sessions since such promotes conspiracies and is underhand.|

|Lets be real, the United Nations is a joke what did they do in europe ?|
stood by as men, women and chilren where slaughtered. Some were marched past them to be murdered but they did nothing.
What did they do in Africa ? Time and time again they have stood by as people have died.
The UN has no chance of doing anything when the two opposites in all of the attrocities are backed by the US and russia or china. These same superpowers have the right to VETO any decision of the UN.
A terrorist is only a terrorist to the country who cannot control it
Did the Americans view the mujahadin as terrorists when they were fighting the Russians in afghanistan?
Everyone knows the Americans saved us from global war over the cuban missile crises!!!
Oh sorry the Russians were placing them there in response to the Americans placing missiles in Turkey, seems the Americans have better control of the worlds media, ie films and tv.
new method to control the web. First this will not stop terrorist.
real things happens in ground not on internet.
|Some very true comments,after all as we know the UN refused to sanction the Invasion of Iraq,it did`nt stop it,slow it or impede the act or the genocide that followed for 8+ years.|
|Despite the 700 inspections in Iraq by Hans Blix the UN inspector over 12 years America still used the excuse of WMD`s to invade Iraq so their Impotence in controlling acts by individual countries despite their own evidence to the contrary shows how much control they really posses in the scheme of things and how much respect and weight they really carry in the worlds political arena.|
