Anti-Nationalist Media Caught with its Left-Pants Leg Down (Video)

Circumcision has as much to do with right-wing Jews massacring Arabs and killing leftists as atheism has to do with Peace Now, but Israel’s anti-nationalist media think otherwise in a TV promo for "satire."

Israel’s anti-rightwing media has exposed itself. It had planned a satirical anti-right wing TV series, but the promo was so disgusting and inciting that Channel One yanked it off the air.

If you are a really serious leftist with no boundaries of bad taste, sing along with this little ditty in the promo:

“Sometimes I am a hero/Sometime I kill/Sometimes I assassinate/Sometimes I slaughter.”

Isn’t that great satire?

But there is more. It also is anti-Semitic, to wit:

Sing, “I am a right-wing murderer” as script appears on the screen stating, “The Jews are coming, they have no God.”

Isn’t that funny?

During the 17-second promo, a baby’s dummy is dipped in cup of wine, on the table with all the accessories for a circumcision that prepares nationalist Jewish babies for their future.

It is something one would expect from a neo-Nazi cult, but , no, this comes from Israel Broadcasting Authority’s Channel One television,  a bastion of the left that through innuendo, prejudice, and outright hate has fed the Israel public two decades of hate of Orthodox Judaism and nationalists, depicted as the source of all of Israel’s problems.

Of course, Channel One sometimes puts a check mark to “balanced journalism” and says settlers are often called the “salt of the earth,” one of the favorite media expressions it used while manipulating the news to promote the plan in 2005 to expel more than 9,000 Jews from their homes, which were demolished afterwards.

The promo was for a “The Jews Are Coming” satire series that was supposed to be the clincher of a deal to air the nationalist Latma satirical program.

However, the Broadcasting Authority could not come to terms with airing a right-wing satirical program, and Latma, out of funds, died last month.

Latma founder Caroline Glick explained here :

“We were supposed to be broadcast on Israel TV’s Channel 1 as the station’s prime time satire show. We were approved by all the professional committees not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 times over the past two years.

“Time after time, they told us they were about to send us the contract. We even sat down and negotiated a contract with them a year ago, but then, each time, they put us on hold. In this fourth iteration of this farce, we have been waiting to receive a contract since Shavuot. Maybe one will arrive in the mail…

“Or maybe our assessment at the outset, that the Left’s control over the Israeli media is so enormous that leftist commissars are willing to break their own rules to keep a satirical voice of Zionism off the air was spot on, and they will continue leading us by the nose and pretending they are a meritorcracy and don’t discriminate against Zionists for the next generation….

“Over the past year, believing the stories we were told by the powers that be on Channel 1 that we would be moving to the small screen almost immediately, we built up the production capabilities of a top line prime time television show. And the costs, for a donation based project are just too high. So we’re ending our run.”

Channel One’s promo for The Jews Are Coming series was pulled off the air because of widespread objections, but the satirical The Jews Are Coming series nevertheless is to debut next month.

If the promo is any indication of what is in store, the new series might be the best thing for nationalists, for the simple reason that it will continue to expose its own vile.

Not even the grossest right-winger would create a satire making fun of the dead murderer of Arabs, but the promo’s lyrics were listed on screen as written by “Baruch Goldstein, Yigal Amir and Yona Avrushmi.” The trio, toting rifles, happily chant the lyrics while dancing around flowers in the promo.

Goldstein was the American-born doctor who treated dozens of victim of Palestinian Authority terror. Many of them died in his arms, and he went off the deep end on Purim in 1994, dressing up in an IDF uniform, carrying his rifle in to the Muslim area of the Patriarchs’ Cave in Hevron and gunning down 29 Arabs. The stampede out of the mosque to escape Goldstein’s massacre crushed him to death.

The response of the media was a death sentence to virtually every settler, especially those in Kiryat Arba-Hevron.

Similarly, diehard leftists still do not forgive national religious Jews for Amir’s assassination of Yitzchak Rabin in 1995. Never mind that Amir was from Herzliya, next to Tel Aviv. He was once seen in Beit Haggai in the Southern Hevron Hills and that immediately qualified him as a settler in the media at the time

Israeli media, particularly the so-called “Voice of Israel” flagship radio station of the Israel Broadcasting Authority, occasionally reminds listeners that right-winger Avrushmi killed Emil Grunzweig in a leftist demonstration in 1983.

Even YouTube commentators dished it out to Channel One, according to the Times of Israel, which said that Channel One was cited for being “racists,” “anti-Semites,” and “Nazis.”

The promo was incitement, plain and simple.

If the right-wing had ever produced a ditty, “I want Judea and Samaria as my fate/Let’s kill the leftists before it is too late,” the police already would have hauled the producers into jail.

The left-wing hates settlers not because they are violent but because they are not violent  and because – and that includes this writer – are normal people with normal families. The peaceful protests against the Expulsion, euphemistically called the Disengagement Plan,” infuriated the Left, which was looking for a cross to justify hanging  the nationalists.

With approximately half a dozen instances of murder  by right-wing nut cases over  a period of 30 years, anti-Semitism is the last weapon in the hands of the IBA.

The IBA already is under the threat of shutdown from Communications Minister Gilad Erdan because of its footdragging on promised reforms. It spits at its mandate to provide the public with a variety of viewpoints, and its programming is totally tilted to the left.

If the new satire series echoes the promo, maybe it will help the IBA shoot itself in the head, and then Israel will be free of it.

“Three cheers for the media on the left/soon it will find it listeners are deaf/Let the Voice of Israel shout on its course/ Soon it will be totally hoarse.”

    Wow the Satire is not funny. It never could be. It's just simply too sad that people still argue about whose sky phantom is most powerful.

    End it. Think.
