ADL: Anti-Semitism pervasive in TV programming during Ramadan
"The ADL cited several popular shows including Egypt’s “Firqat Naji Attalah,” which airs daily and chronicles the fictional adventures of Egyptian diplomats in Tel Aviv.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 12 years and over 25,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
