Iran’s Press TV Continues To Broadcast Anti-Semitism As “News”

Press TV, Iran’s government-run English-language news network, continues to provide a platform for American anti-Semites to spread hateful conspiracy theories, starting 2015 with news reports that Jews are behind all that is wrong with the world.

Press TV is the Iranian government’s primary English-language propaganda tool, promoting a wide range of pernicious anti-Semitic conspiracy theories as “news” to a worldwide audience.

Operated by Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), Press TV serves as a mouthpiece for American anti-Semites, conspiracy theorists, and Holocaust deniers, who help amplify the Iranian regime’s hateful messages.

Press TV started 2015 with news reports that Jews and/or Israel were behind the attack at the Char­lie Hebdo office in Paris, the creation of ISIS, the 2011 attacks in Norway that left 77 people dead, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

  • Creation of ISIS:  Kevin Bar­rett, an anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­rist and fre­quent Press TV con­trib­u­tor, stated on January 20, 2015 in a piece titled “Zionist NWO murders Iranian general, American filmmaker” that “The Zionists created ISIL and sent it to fight Muslims and Christians in Syria and Iraq…New World Order Zionism is also targeting the USA for destruction.”
  • 2011 attacks in Norway:  Barrett stated in a February 17, 2015 article titled “9/11 attack was Zionist coup d-etat to seize power in US: Scholar” that “…Zionist pre-emptive murderers excel at ‘killing the future’…A team of Zionist-liked professional killers executed a total of 77 people, while Zionist-freemasonic assets in the Norwegian police and military stood by.”
  • 9/11 terrorist attacks: In the same February 2015 article Barrett stated that “The September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States were a Zionist ‘coup d’etat’ to seize power in the country and launch a permanent war on Islam on behalf of Israel…”

Press TV articles and broadcasts in 2015 also continue to allege that Zionists control the media, politics, finance, and other sectors and supposedly use this control for nefarious purposes.

For example, vir­u­lent anti-Semite and for­mer Klan leader, David Duke stated in a March 19, 2015 article titled “Zionists know war with Iran can upset their apple cart: Ex-US state lawmaker” that “These more cunning Zionist extremists think that war might upset their apple cart, but they are still moving toward the same objective, that is the expansion of Israel, the destruction of the Palestinians, the destruction of the rights of all the nations of the world and a subservience to a Zio-globalist economy, the Zio-globalist government.”

David Duke Admits that “Protocols of Zion” Is Fiction

David Duke, virulent anti-Semite and former Klan leader, is desperately promoting his yet-to be released book, The Illustrated Protocols of Zion. Duke’s book is based on The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a well-known 19th– century forgery that purports to be a secret plan of Jews to take over the world. In a video about the book posted originally on Duke’s YouTube channel, Duke admits that the original Protocols is a work of fiction. He is taking a different tack than most anti-Semites who see the Protocols as an actual blueprint for world domination by Jews. While Duke declares that the original Protocols is a work of “literary fantasy,” he argues that his own version surpasses the original in documenting Jewish power.

Throughout the video used to promote the Illustrated Protocols, Duke claims that the elders of Zion are now known as the leaders of Zionism. He then goes on to assert that Jews control the government, banking, the media and Hollywood. Though Duke tries to present Illustrated Protocols of Zion as a ground-breaking work, the book merely rehashes the same anti-Semitic themes as Duke’s previous works. Like the original Protocols, the purpose of Duke’s book and video is to promote hatred against the Jews.

Though Duke has been promoting The Illustrated Protocols for months on his website in an effort to get it printed, he sent an “emergency” appeal for money to supporters this week. In the appeal, he claims that the Illustrated Protocols video posted on his YouTube channel was removed due to a Jewish conspiracy against him. He also claims that YouTube is going to terminate the “David Duke Channel” in 10 days.

In this latest ploy to raise money, Duke blames “Jewish extremists” for trying to prevent his books and videos from being seen, However, in reality, many of Duke’s videos remain on YouTube. Moreover, according to a suspension notice displayed on YouTube the original Illustrated Protocols video was removed from Duke’s YouTube channel due to copyright violations, not an alleged conspiracy. Duke uses numerous clips from movies and other media to exploit anti-Semitic themes in the video, which has since been reposted to YouTube by other users.

After Executive Action on Immigration, Extremists Lash Out

Extremists in the United States responded to President Obama’s announcement of executive action on immigration by attacking the President, blaming Jews and calling for whites to become “conscious” and distance themselves from the current political system and society.

The racist and anti-Semite Pat Buchanan penned an article published in Townhall.com in which he claimed the President, “ensured the remaking of America.” Buchanan wrote, “Now when the wives and children of the illegals arrive, and their extended families apply for and receive visas, and bring their wives and children, we will become the Third World country of Obama’s dream, no more a Western nation.” Adrian Krieg, a director with the white supremacist American Freedom Party (AFP) also attacked the President in a column on the AFP website, asserting, “This was the act of a despotic sociopath acting outside law, and in a veiled attempt to paint the opposition into a corner.”

In a piece on his website, anti-Semite David Duke blamed Jews for the President’s actions, declaring, “This strategy—of ensuring that America’s founding European population be reduced to a minority—and then preferably into total irrelevance—has been a major goal of the Jewish Supremacists since the days of Jacob Javits and his fellow Zio-racists since the 1960s, when the first Jewish-promoted immigration reforms were started.” Fellow anti-Semite Andrew Anglin echoed Duke’s comments on his Daily Stormer website, asserting, “The reason here is that the Republicans aren’t actually against it. The big business Jews who run the GOP are in agreement with the commie Jews who run the Democratic Party: mass third world immigration is a good thing.”

White nationalist Richard Spencer called for a new white identity in an article on the website of his group National Policy Institute (NPI). Spencer claimed the President’s actions could mark a “beginning of a movement of Identity.” This identity can flourish, Spencer wrote “even if half the channels on cable are ‘en espaniol [sic].’” Gregory Hunter, a contributor to the white supremacist online publication Counter-Currents, responded in a similar vein to Spencer. Hunter argued, “It seems self-evident that European-Americans should turn on those who have betrayed them, renounce the failed American experiment, and secure their own destroy [sic] by any means necessary – secession, rebellion, and the eventual goal of the White Republic.” Hunter went on to assert that “no progress will be made unless European-Americans become conscious of themselves as Europeans abroad.”
