U.S. Taxpayers Subsidize Terrorist Propaganda and Holocaust Denial in the Arab World

[Wall Street Journal] Joel Mowbray - Al-Hurra, the taxpayer-financed Arab TV network, aired Hizbullah leader Nasrallah's 68-minute Dec. 7 speech live. Al-Hurra covered the Holocaust denial conference in Tehran last December, treating Iranian President Ahmadinejad and the attendees at his conference with unmistakable deference. Al-Hurra's Dec. 12 report on the gathering included David Duke's praise for Ahmadinejad. Also broadcast unchallenged were the remarks of French Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson, who informed Arab viewers: "Gas chambers and mass killings of the Jews, in the way that it is pretended (by the Jews), is completely untrue, and an historical lie." In closing the piece, the Al-Hurra reporter referred to Israel as "the Jewish state on Palestinian lands." Combating this nonsense should be ground zero in our quest to inject truth and information into the Arab world. If we can't do this, how will we ever be able counteract the jihadists who preach to the masses that America is waging war on Islam?
