UK: Ofcom warn TV channel over broadcasts calling Jews a ‘cursed race’

Via TheJC:
An Islamic TV channel has been warned by the broadcasting standards regulator Ofcom that it faces sanctions after showing antisemitic lectures by a preacher who called Jews a “cursed race”.

Peace TV Urdu was found in breach of TV standards for broadcasting two recorded lecturers by the late Dr Israr Ahmad in September last year.

The overall effect would have been to “promote highly negative antisemitic stereotypes about and attitudes towards Jewish people,” Ofcom stated in its decision today.

“In our view the terms used to describe Jewish people such as ‘like a cancer’, ‘evil genius,’ ‘their poison,’ ‘cursed people’, ‘cursed race’ were particularly strong and inflammatory,” the watchdog stated.

The lecturer repeatedly portrayed Jews in “overwhelming negative and stereotypical terms” and said the Protocols of the Elders of Zion – the notorious Tzarist forgery – revealed the plans of powerful Jews.
