WWOD?

What would Obama do? Think the Jews will riot and have it explained away as anger over this video scheduled to run in his buddy, Mohammed Morsi’s Egypt? Will the media condemn this? Will the American government lecture the Egyptians about “tolerance”?

I just got this press release from the ZOA:

June 7, NEW YORK –The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has called upon the Obama Administration to publicly pressure the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood-backed regime of Mohammed Morsi to cancel the broadcast of a viciously anti-Semitic television series that is due to air in July during Ramadan and to also cancel its distribution in the Arab world. The television series, Khayber, celebrates the victory of Muhammad’s Muslim army over the Jewish tribes living in northern Arabia in the battle of Khaybar in 629 C.E. According to most Islamic sources, the Khayber story ends with the slaughter of thousands of Jewish men, women and children. The vanquished Jews were forced thereafter to hand over half their produce to the Muslims until later expelled by the Caliph Umar. The ZOA has noted that Egypt is a signatory of The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which prohibits the “advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence,” and should be held accountable for the broadcasting and dissemination of this series.

The series is explicitly intended to demonize the Jews as an alien race hostile to Muslims and the welfare of the world. According to the series’ script-writer, Yusri Al-Jindy, “The goal of the series is to expose the naked truth about the Jews and stress that they cannot be trusted …I think it is time to expose them [the Jews] even in America itself. I am confident that the United States will realize that it paid a high price for supporting them.” Anticipating a charge of anti-Semitism Al-Jindy said that, “The charge of anti-Semitism is an out­dated trend, and in fact it is a lie that Jews use against any­one who tries to expose their naked truth and their conspiracies.” Al-Jindy is also the author of The Wandering Jew, which was banned in Egypt in the 1980s.

Khayber is produced by the Qatari company Echo Media Qatar which, in 2010, produced a television series, The Collapse of the Caliphate, which blamed Jews for conspiring with the enemies of the Ottoman Sultan to dismember the Caliphate, the Islamic empire administered for several centuries by the Ottomans. A report in the Qatari newspaper Al-Raya states that the series focuses “on the social, economic and religious characteristics of the Jews including politics and conspiracies and how they dominate and control tribes.” A report on Al Jazeera this week described Khayber as “the most important feature of the Islamic-Jewish fight. Muslims always raise its name in their rallies against Israel because it constitutes a memory of a harsh defeat for the Jews who lived in the Arabian Peninsula during the time of prophet.”

The promotion of anti-Semitic themes in the Egyptian media has been a long-standing and ominous problem. In 2002-2003, Egyptian television produced a 40-part series, Rider Without a Horse, dramatizing the classic anti-Semitic tract, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. The program depicts Jews murdering a gentile child to use his blood in making of Passover matzah.

The current Egypt President, Mohammed Morsi, also has a long and ugly record of anti-Semitism:

In 2010, Morsi said the following in a speech unearthed earlier this year that, “Dear brothers, we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all those who support them. They must be nursed on hatred. The hatred must continue” (‘Egypt’s Morsi In 2010: Obama Insincere; We Must Nurse Our Children And Grandchildren On Hatred Of Jews Those Who Support Them,’ Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Special Dispatch No. 5138, January 16, 2013).

In a 2010 TV interview, Morsi referred to Jews are “these blood-suckers, who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs [standard Islamist parlance for describing Jews] …We should employ all forms of resistance against them. There should be military resistance within the land of Palestine against those criminal Zionists … None of the Arab or Muslim peoples and regimes should have dealings with them … They must not be given any opportunity, and must not stand on any Arab or Islamic land. They must be driven out of our countries … We must all realize that resistance is the only way to liberate the land of Palestine” (‘Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi In 2010: No To Negotiations With The Blood-Sucking, Warmongering ‘Descendants Of Apes And Pigs’; Calls To Boycott U.S. Products,’ MEMRI, Special Dispatch No. 5118, January 4, 2013).

Last October, Morsi was shown in an Egyptian Channel One Television broadcast of a sermon by a Egyptian cleric, fervent in payer as the cleric said, “Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate Your might and greatness upon them. Show us Your omnipotence, oh Lord” (‘Egyptian President Morsi Joins Preacher in Prayer for Dispersal of the Jews,’ MEMRI, Video Clip No. 3614, October 19, 2012).

ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said, “The dissemination of poisonous anti-Semitism in a Middle East already awash in it is a serious development that cannot simply be ignored.

“This vicious and venomous Egyptian TV series calls for practical action. We call upon the Obama Administration to hold the Morsi regime to the assurances it offered when it entered office that it will uphold the ways of peace and not act inconsistently with its obligations to maintain peace in the region.

“To broadcast and disseminate blood-curdling genocidal fantasies of Muslims slaughtering Jews is obviously and blatantly anti-Semitic and anti-peace.

“The 1966 The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which Egypt signed, states in Article 20, paragraph 2, that “Any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law.”

“It is clear: Egypt must be held accountable, as must any country that broadcasts it.

“In view of President Morsi’s own ugly record of ugly anti-Semitism, as outlined above, it will clearly require firm U.S. and international pressure on Cairo to ban the series. If the U.S. fails to demand these things, it will only show that the production of the most obscene hatred carries no U.S. penalty

    Dear Mr. Utah

    We should not be interfering in religious issues against the Religion of Peace. Can’t you Islamophobe’s get a handle on it. Just go cling to your Bible’s and Gun’s and leave us (oops! “the”)poor Muslims alone. You know perfectly well that my husband, your fearless President and Leader Supreme (whom won the Noble Peace prize and sets above the throne of Allah) has the Jooo’s backs and will not let any harm come to them if they agree to convert.

    Regardless, our fellow Moslems deserve to have the land, the racist Moses stole from the poor Palestinians, returned and payback the Religion of Peace for all the people the Jooo’s killed in the process.

    Praise be to Barack and Allahu Akbar

    • Sorry Moochelle – that’s just what we bigoted, racist homophobes do.

      Has anyone ever told you how much we liked your acting work on Deep Space 9 and Star Trek – TNG as Lt. Worf?

      You never talk about that part of your career. Was that before or after you were raking in 350K at a Chicago hospital for pushing trauma patients off on public hospitals?

      Anyhow.

      You were great.

      Love,

      A Big Fan

  2. And the guy who made that silly You-tube video that was used by Obama and Hillary Clinton as the reason for the Benghazi and Egyptian 911 terrorist attacks on our Embassies said the EXACT same thing !!!!

    muslim slaughter of women and children.

  3. Dear Mr. Big Fan,

    It is nice to know that I’m appreciated for my role as Lt. Worf in Star Trek. Luckily I did not require a lot of makeup to play that part. Since I decided to take a vacation from the movie business since Barack became “The One Man Show” I have been offered a lot of other opportunities in the movie business. The following is a list of the two parts I’m considering.

    1) Chubaka in the upcoming new Star Wars movie. If I quit shaving for a week I’ll have that part nailed down in no time.
    2) Godzilla in Tel Aviv where I play Godzilla. Steven has told me I am perfectly proportioned to play the part.

    Should you have any suggestions for my future movie career please let me know.

    Love and kisses,

    Michele (FLOTUS)

  4. Hi Mooch,

    Are you still planning to stop by and go through my kitchen cupboards this week? Could you bring another copy of the Banned Foods List? Grandma ate mine the other night after you told her the new Obamacare rules were going to ration what goes into her feeding tube. BTW, she didn’t appreciate the cremation brochures you left all over her room although we’re certain you are right about it being “green”

    Also, if you could let us know where Junior has been sent to for that fine education you promised then we could send his clothes on to him. I know you said he’s been issued a uniform with his AR15, but I’d sure like to send that wool scarf I knitted off to him. My husband said Susie can’t accept the bracelet you brought for her from your friend in Saudi Arabia, but she sure looks cute in the burka you gave her.

    I know you’re off to the Vineyard soon so I won’t take anymore of your time. Americans sure are lucky to have a First Lady that takes such a personal interest in everything we do.
