Iran’s Hispan TV Follows Press TV’s Footsteps With Live Stream On YouTube

Update — Sep­tem­ber 20, 2013: After ADL con­tacted YouTube regard­ing His­pan TV’s use of YouTube to live stream the Iran­ian network’s per­va­sive anti-Semitism, the stream fea­ture was dis­abled.  

His­pan TV, the Iran­ian government’s Spanish-language satel­lite news net­work, began a live stream of its net­work on YouTube one week ago. Like its English-language sis­ter sta­tion Press TV, His­pan TV reg­u­larly broad­casts anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist con­spir­acy theories.hispan-tv-iran-youtube

His­pan TV’s use of YouTube to live stream its broad­cast, which orig­i­nates from the offi­cial His­pan TV Nexo Latino net­work, fol­lows the dis­abling of Press TV’s live stream on YouTube.

ADL exposed Press TV’s YouTube stream in July, a day after it was launched. ADL also con­tacted YouTube regard­ing con­cerns about Press TV using YouTube as a con­duit for the per­va­sive anti-Semitism the Iran­ian media out­let is known for.

As E.U. and U.S. sanc­tions have increas­ingly tight­ened on Iran, the Islamic Repub­lic of Iran Broad­cast­ing (IRIB), Iran’s state broad­caster that pro­duces His­pan TV and Press TV, has tried to bypass sanc­tions by pro­vid­ing live feeds of its net­works through YouTube. At present, YouTube lacks an effec­tive flag­ging sys­tem for live feed technology.

Increas­ing its influ­ence in Latin Amer­ica has been a strong fea­ture of the Iran­ian government’s for­eign pol­icy in the last decade, and His­pan TV serves as a plat­form to spread Tehran’s con­spir­acy the­o­ries, Holo­caust denial and anti-Semitism.

A July 29, 2013, arti­cle on a speech made by Mah­moud Ahmadine­jad, quoted the out­go­ing pres­i­dent as hav­ing “Two ques­tions regard­ing the sup­posed ‘Holo­caust’” and “Why don’t they [the Jews] allow an inves­ti­ga­tion about the Holo­caust and why not indi­cate where the Holo­caust occurred?”

Con­spir­a­cies alleg­ing the undue power of the pro-Israel lobby are also fre­quently fea­tured by His­pan TV. In an arti­cle pub­lished on July 30, 2013, at the height of the New York City may­oral race, the “Jew­ish lobby” is char­ac­ter­ized as seek­ing out a can­di­date who can rule the city for the Jew­ish lobby. “Is Anthony Weiner only a prod­uct of his time, like Clin­ton, or was he valu­able ‘dam­aged goods’ for the Jew­ish lobby who thought of him as the per­fect con­trol­lable asset to gov­ern the city of New York for them?” 

A June 2013 arti­cle posted on the His­pan TV web­site pro­motes a con­spir­acy that Israeli sci­en­tists fal­si­fied Jew­ish genetic ances­try to jus­tify Israel’s cre­ation. “They com­mit­ted this fraud only to sup­port the false claim to bib­li­cal Pales­tine, which was rooted in the idea of being a sep­a­rate peo­ple… With this DNA test, they secured a pass­port bar­code to Pales­tine,” the arti­cle claims.

    Quick Amer­i­can His­tory review:
    There was no-need to drop two bomb when Japan got what you already con­ceded they only thing the demanded; keep­ing their Emperor

    You could saved more Jews by bomb­ing the rail­roads and lis­ten­ing to other Amer­i­can Jews. You bomb the crap out of the Ho Chi Min Trail.
    Then have the Gol invite them to sim­u­late into your pop­u­la­tion after what you saw what their capa­ble of with jobs and posi­tions of power through oper­a­tion paper clip at NASA/CIA.

    You couldn’t win and had to set­tle for a draw in Korea where you still cant get the North to feel so sorry for them­selves enough to have them work for .25 cents an hour. To develop an infer­rer com­plex never believ­ing they can defend them­selves against a white bully Nation.

    You were set as exam­ple in Viet­nam by the heav­ens in hav­ing a super power loos­ing to poorer weaker nation. Hashem, Blessed Be He pledged HE will defend the weak and the poor. It is writ­ten in the Torah. That is not writ­ten or deleted in the king James bible. “G-D told me to tell you this morn­ing. The truth myst be told.”-MLK

    Not euro­pean com­mu­nism but demo­c­ra­tic social­ist coun­tries still flour­ish despite eco­nomic embar­goes like in cuba or with­out hav­ing them applied in China. When other coun­ties peo­ple vote their social­ist lead­ers in you mur­der them like Allende in Chile.
    Then Pres­i­dent Ronald Rea­gan sup­plies only the rich in El Sal­vador with M-16s. Tries to start a war in Nicaragua and when Arch Bishop Romero writes a let­ter to Rea­gan he is mur­der as well.

    You lyied to the Amer­i­can peo­ple about weapons of mass destruc­tion to destroy a coun­try over Mobile Oil and revenge because younger Bush didn’t like how Sad­dam spook to Bush Sr. Hydro-electric energy runs in water that should be free on a planet thats two thirds water. It was offer as an alter­na­tive fuel in the six­ties when Bobby went to Peru to see how sup­posed to work before Eisenhower/Johnson’ s mil­i­tary quo de ta!

    And Jews wanna now relay on This Amer­ica for its defense with bil­lions of green paper and call them­selves great banker or investors or with money in gen­eral. Hashem, Blessed Be He is tired of pun­ish­ing you for try­ing to be like other tribes or relay­ing on them instead if HIM, Blessed Be He. Moses didn’t relay on the Hit­tites to escape Egypt.

    Hashem, Blessed Be He sent the Assyr­i­ans from Per­sia to destroy the north­ern king­dom of Israel. Now your reliance have Iran a Per­sian Nation capa­ble if destroy­ing you with a bomb if you don’t con­ceded to the Palestinians.

    Just remem­ber one thing All Roads Lead To Jerusalem may you right­eous when you get there!
