Yet another anti-Semitic program on Iranian state-run TV
It’s simply amazing how truly hypocritical and idiotic the current Iranian government is when it comes to their messages put out in the media regarding Jews. Day in and day out the Iranian regime goes to great lengths to differentiate how they hate Israel and the “Zionist” enemy but supposedly “love the Jews and treat the Jews in their country with rights”. What a bunch of B.S.! The Iranian regime may project an image of “loving Jews” when it comes to the Western media but when one takes a closer look at their domestic television news or entertainment program, the opposite is true.
The Washington-based, Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has recently exposed one of the latest anti-Semitic television series put out by Iranian state-run television called “40 Soldiers”. The series, created by Mohammad Nourizad supposedly examines Islamic historical perspectives where the Shiite Islamic prophet Ali is depicted as conquering the Jewish fortress called “Khaybar”. Basically the entire translated program which can be seen here on the MEMRI site portrays Jews as evil and seeking to harass “peace-loving Muslims”. Here’s a sample of the translation of what the narrator’s show says during the 28-part series:
One Jewish character on the series named “Marhab” is portrayed as trying to eliminate Muslims:
The next time you see or hear about the government in Iran being “benevolent to the Jews, loving Jews, or offering Jews equal rights in Iran”, you can be rest assured that it’s all pretty much the regime’s propaganda put out to place themselves in a good light. The regime and it’s leaders have a deep rooted ideological hatred for Jews and other non-Muslims. They might be able to deny this hatred in the Western media every once in a while but they never fail to hide it from the public in Iran.
