Cairo Egypt - Nile Sat Broadcasting on..
French government has cancelled the famous Arabic TV channel - Rahma TV, according to sources here (USA).
This comes in a series of events of various "Bans" issued by different governments of TV channels and Internet websites - (see articles on our site: Pakistan Bans YouTube, Facebook and Wikipedia; France Bans Rahma TV (below); and now Nile Sat giving into the pressure of governments and cancelling the Rahma TV channel from their satellite)
Less than 2 weeks agon, France's Conseil Superieur de l'Audiovisuel (CSA), the government authority overseeing all public broadcasts in France, announced a ban on Egypt's Rahma TV channel. They have ordered Eutelsat, the satellite carrier for Al-Rahma, to cease provision of services for the channel.
CSA says their decision is based on Al-Rahma's program of Octber 31, last year, featuring anti-semitic content, and incitement to violence (according to them).
(http://memritv.org/clip/en/2274.htm). The program included a segment where the presenter addressed Jews saying, "Your time has come at last, you offspring of apes and pigs, you most accursed creatures created by Allah. I have a message for every Jew on the face of the earth, "the army of Mohamed will return. O, offspring of apes and pigs - the day of vengence is nearing.."
MEMRI monitors and translates Al Rahma TV channel since it began two years ago, and is the only organization doing so in the world. MEMRI works closely with French authorities in the previous year on issues of incitement on Al Rahma TV.
What is your opinion?
[reply May 29, 12:59 PM] -This just makes me sick - Our family and friends have always loved to listen to our sheikh Mohamed Hassan presenting Islam in beautiful ways and having Yusuf Estes on Rahma was a big delight for the Arab world. We must do something, inshallah.
