The United States government’s Arabic-language satellite television network, al-Hurra, broadcast anti-Israeli propaganda on several occasions because nobody there speaks Arabic, and therefore nobody knows what they’re actually broadcasting.
Overseers of the United States government’s Arabic-language satellite television network say a speech by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah was not screened for anti-Israel content before broadcast because no supervisor spoke Arabic.
In another Al-Hurra broadcast, Ackerman said, Hamas leader Ismail Haniya lent support to the Iranian assertion that the world War II Holocaust against European Jews was a myth.
Al-Hurra is financed by the U.S. government. It was intended to reduce anti-American sentiment in the Arab world.
