UK Regulator Finds Muslim TV Station Guilty of ‘Antisemitic Hate Speech’
British broadcast regulatory authority Ofcom ruled that Shia Muslim TV channel Ahlebait was guilty of “antisemitic hate speech” in response to Community Security Trust (CST) complaints it received.
Ofcom said the station broadcast material that “amounted to antisemitic hate speech” and was “abusive and derogatory towards Jewish people,” the media reported. The ruling came after Ofcom looked into complaints made by the CST, over a live discussion show that aired in March 2021.
During a discussion on “20th Hour” about money and power, one of the guests spoke about Jewish people, saying: ”Their antisemitism comes from their actions of impoverishing people and they then respond and then they call it antisemitism but we know that it’s because they do and they get punished and as Allah says, you know, he will expel... send them to all corners of the world to be an excoriation and a hissing and a booing to wherever he had sent them.... So antisemitism comes from debt, not cancelling the debt, and usury.”
He added this was why Jews had been “expelled from 47 different countries and city-states in the last one thousand years.” The host of the show called the antisemitic statements “interesting” and then claimed that “money is being weaponized” by the US. (INN / VFI News)
