Counter The Judaic Lobby’s Attack on CNN

CNN Comes Under Unprecedented Attack

Forward

Washington – A CNN documentary about religious extremists has prompted an unprecedented outcry from the organized Jewish community, including a call to advertisers to pressure the network.

The three-episode special, “God’s Warriors,” by CNN’s chief international correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, is being characterized by Jewish groups as equating Jewish extremists in West Bank settlements with Muslim jihadists. The program is also accused of containing numerous factual errors.

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, which represents more than 50 national Jewish organizations, convened a special discussion with its members following the airing of the program last month, and has urged them to take up the issue with companies that have bought advertising slots during the show.

In the past, there have been widespread complaints about the media’s treatment of Israel, but this appears to be the first time that so many organizations have come together in opposition to a single media outlet.

“This was not an average show,” said Jennifer Laszlo-Mizrahi, founder of The Israel Project. “CNN bought full-page ads promoting the show and ran it on prime time. The perspective the show left the viewers with is that Israel doesn’t want peace and that Israel’s friends in the United States don’t want peace.” The Israel Project, a group focused on providing information to the press and the public about Israel, broke a five-year tradition of not reacting to media reports on Israel and put out a press release about the Amanpour show, detailing Israel’s efforts to promote peace in the region.

“The program definitely has a great damage potential because of the people who watch CNN,” Laszlo-Mizrahi added, pointing to the fact that foreign officials and decision makers tend to view CNN as an important news source.

I watched most of the CNN series, “God’s Warriors” and while I thought it was only a brief introduction at best and that it failed to make some distinctions I found it to be a very important and very timely journalistic work. I was quite pleased that the Judaic hand in the “Christian Zionist” movement was exposed and that “Christian Zionism” wasn’t conflated with traditional Christianity. It also presented very real and largely unreported Judaic terrorists and their terrorist acts before a large audience most of whom are unlikely to have known of these things.

On the whole I found “God’s Warriors” to be imperfect but a definite move towards the type of journalism that we should expect from anyone who presumes to call him/herself a journalist, timely and relevant, particularly now given the impending Zionist assault on Iran. Viewers received a brief glimpse inside the minds of the promoters of messianic Zionist warmongering insanity.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Judaic power organizations are bringing their full weight down on CNN for airing this documentary. I hope that people will take the time to contact CNN and voice their support for this type of journalism and hopes that they will build on this program offering more continually improving, relevant, courageous journalism of this nature in the future. Don’t allow Judaic groups to impose their tyrannical minority view on our airwaves. If you allow their voice to be heard over yours that is what you should expect.

Please call the Discovery Channel and protest their perennial Easter season installment of anti-Christian bigotry.

The Discovery Channel’s phone # is 240-662-2000. Senior Executive Vice President, Mark Hollinger’s direct extension is 5495. President and CEO, David Zaslav’s extension is not available, so you’ll have to leave a message with an operator for him. Please be civil and thoughtful in your comments.

This was my message:

The Discovery channel’s anti-Christian bias is plainly evident in it’s entertainment of fanciful theories that contradict the Christian Gospel which air with increasing intensity around the Christmas and Easter seasons each
year.

It’s not a secret that James Cameron was only the spokesman for “The Lost Tomb of Jesus” and that the real driving force behind the program is Orthodox Judaic, Simcha Jacobovici.

Does the Discovery Channel plan to air programming on Jacobovici’s religion, Orthodox Judaism, equally critical and in equal amounts around the “Jewish” high holy days as it does on Christianity during it’s holy days? If the past is any indicator, the answer to that question is a very clear, no.

So the Discovery Channel is most accurately regarded as a very biased platform for criticism of Christianity and protection of Orthodox Judaism. And I will remain energetic in organizing boycotts of Discovery Communications, Inc., Cox Communications and Advance/Newhouse Communications until that problem is corrected.

To Jacobovici, an Orthodox Jew and established documentary filmmaker …

“all the films I make are Jewish because I bring that sensibility to it.”

Indeed, Jacobovici’s “Jewish” sensibility is plain to see in his attacks against Christianity. And I’ve had enough such “Jewish” sensibility to last several lifetimes.

Cause for Celebration in India and Shame in the U.S.

This is what’s possible when Catholics actually DO something. Perhaps U.S. Catholics would benefit if some Indian missionaries came here to show them how it’s done.

Discovery India pulls showing of ‘Lost Tomb of Jesus’ documentary

MUMBAI (CNA): The Discovery Channel has announced that it will not broadcast the “The Lost Tomb of Jesus” in India after protests from various Christian groups, led by the Mumbai-based Catholic Secular Forum, the India Catholic News Service reports.

The documentary, directed by Simcha Jacobovici and produced by James Cameron, had its worldwide premier on Sunday.

Protesters said the documentary, which claims to have found the burial place of Jesus, his alleged wife, Mary Magdalene, and their son, Judas, trivializes the Christian faith.

Father Babu Joseph, the spokesman for the Catholic Bishops Conference of India, said in a statement against the film, “the documentary is not based on proven historical fact. Historically speaking, evidences closer to the event have more authenticity than evidences dished out after 2000 years. According to Biblical and non-Biblical sources, it has been believed that Jesus rose from the dead, and that is the basis of entire Christian faith and tradition.”

Numerous archeological experts, such as the internationally renowned Holy Land archeologist, Professor Amos Kloner have also criticized the documentary. Kloner, who revealed the findings of the very same dig 10 years ago, criticized the filmmakers’ marketing strategy and said it is not based on proof, the Jerusalem Post reported last week.

Kloner said a similar film was released 11 years ago, and the new film, The Lost Tomb of Jesus, is simply a renewed effort to create controversy in order to make a profit.

The Discovery Channel’s Delhi office reportedly expressed regret for offending the Christian community.
