Steven Stalinsky in FrontPage details jihad TV in America:
Rep. Steven Rothman, a Democrat of New Jersey, and Rep. Joe Knollenberg, a Republican of Michigan, yesterday sponsored a MEMRI briefing on Arab and Iranian satellite channels available in America. Their broadcasts have the potential to incite viewers to jihad and contain messages of hate against Jews and Christians. As the content of such programming is exposed, it is hopeful that the Federal Communications Commission – which answers directly to Congress and the mission of which includes regulating international television in America – would consider legal proceedings against American companies that air Arab and Iranian TV channels spewing hatred.
Programs on these channels include statements clearly directed at Americans. During an official Friday sermon on August 27 aired on Sudanese TV, for example, a preacher stated that Jews engineered the attacks of September 11, 2001. He cited a quote fabricated by the Nazis and inaccurately attributed it to Benjamin Franklin: “The malaria microbe known as the Jews, which the U.S. carries in its stomach, will kill it sooner or later.” He added, “These Jews hasten America’s death. The U.S. must be aware. We offer this advice via the TV channels.”
Similar Nazi falsehoods have resurfaced of late on other Arab and Iranian TV stations available in America, such as Al-Jazeera and Al-Manar. Tuning into those channels can be strikingly similar to watching Nazi propaganda. Programming includes shows devoted to distortions in Jewish religious texts, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” Jewish corruption throughout history, and the blood libel. On a UAE/Saudi channel Al-Majd program of March 22, 2004, the secretary-general of the Islamic Action Front Party of Jordan, Sheikh Hamza Mansour described the “sick psychological nature” of the Jews, adding that they make “matzoth out of innocent children’s blood.”
