Iran’s Press TV Claims American Jews Are “Incubating Another Hitler”

Screen­shot from Bhat’s Press TV article

Press TV, Iran’s government-run English-language satel­lite news net­work, has taken its usual viciously anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries a step fur­ther. It now claims not only that Jews are to blame for the Holo­caust, but also that because Jews did not learn from their sup­posed wrongs in Nazi Ger­many that “Amer­i­can Zion­ists” are “incu­bat­ing another Hitler.”

The Novem­ber 9 arti­cle, “Amer­i­can Zion­ists incu­bat­ing another Hitler,” was writ­ten by a Press TV colum­nist named M.I. Bhat, who also writes for the con­spir­a­to­r­ial anti-Semitic web­site Vet­er­ans Today. The Press TV piece was addi­tion­ally pub­lished two days ear­lier in Vet­er­ans Today under the title “Are Amer­i­can Jews incu­bat­ing another Hitler?”

In both arti­cles, Bhat claims that “Amer­i­can Zion­ists” con­trol America’s “banks, Wall Street, media, Hol­ly­wood, mar­kets, politi­cians, for­eign pol­icy, indeed the whole life of Amer­i­cans.” The arti­cle also asserts that the 9/11 ter­ror­ist attacks were a “false flag” attack com­mit­ted by “Amer­i­can Zion­ist Jews and Israel” to fur­ther their con­trol of Amer­i­can for­eign policy.

Bhat alleges it is “no more a ‘con­spir­acy the­ory’” to state that “Amer­i­can Con­gress and Sen­ate, Gov­er­nors and even City May­ors [sic] are totally and abjectly sold out, body and soul, to the Amer­i­can Zion­ists dol­lars.” He sum­ma­rizes matter-of-factly that “Amer­ica is enslaved by Israel.”

It is typ­i­cal for Press TV to mis­lead­ingly present anti-Semites, both Amer­i­can and for­eign, as seri­ous and cred­i­ble “experts” or “ana­lysts.” Bhat, a retired geol­ogy pro­fes­sor from an Indian uni­ver­sity, does not appear to have any cre­den­tials in the field of “inter­na­tional pol­i­tics,” claim­ing only that such top­ics are his “main attrac­tion” after geology.

Bhat makes no attempt to hide his con­spir­a­to­r­ial think­ing about the sup­pos­edly Zion­ist “Mas­ters of the United States.” He claims this cabal con­trols “democ­racy itself” which has “been reduced to mere com­pe­ti­tion in secur­ing Jew­ish fund­ing and accep­tance by Zion­ist media.”

Bhat does not stop there.

He alleges that Amer­i­cans can trace “every mis­ery” to “Amer­i­can Zion­ists banksters,” who spend their time “deter­min­ing, dom­i­nat­ing, and con­trol­ling every aspect of [Amer­i­cans’] lives– social, moral, polit­i­cal judi­cial and economic.”

Bhat’s over-the-top con­spir­acy the­o­ries are actu­ally quite typ­i­cal of the anti-Jewish pro­pa­ganda ped­dled by Press TV as legit­i­mate news. How­ever, Bhat then goes a step fur­ther, accept­ing the Nazi regime’s anti-Jewish con­spir­acy the­o­ries as his­tor­i­cal fact and blam­ing the Jew­ish vic­tims of the Holo­caust for their fate.

He dis­turbingly con­cludes his arti­cle by imply­ing another Holo­caust is com­ing, this time to Amer­i­can Jews. Bhat writes, “how neatly this descrip­tion [of how Jew­ish con­trol and manip­u­la­tion resulted in all of Germany’s ills] depicts the cur­rent state of affairs of the United States! …Zion­ists don’t seem to draw any lessons from their past actions and expe­ri­ences.” Bhat asks, “If descrip­tion above [sic] of the post-WWI Ger­many is what led the Ger­mans to rally behind Hitler, should it then sur­prise Zion­ists or the world at large if Amer­ica pops up its own Hitler?”

The arti­cle also fea­tures an image of the Nazi regime’s bat­tle flag in which the swastika has been replaced with the Star of David.

“Mein Kampf” Used To Validate Anti-Semitic Forgery On Popular Arab TV Program

A Kuwaiti tele­vi­sion pro­gram focus­ing on con­spir­acy the­o­ries fea­tured a dis­cus­sion on The Pro­to­cols of the Learned Elders of Zion. But instead of debunk­ing this noto­ri­ous anti-Semitic forgery, the program’s host and guest pun­dit cited Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf to prove the authen­tic­ity of the Pro­to­cols’ claims.

The pro­gram, which aired on Sep­tem­ber 30 on Al-Rai TV, was hosted by Dr. Mohammed Al-Awady, a well-known tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity, and fea­tured pun­dit Dr. Muhana Al Muhana.

Dur­ing their dis­cus­sion, Al-Awady quoted sec­tions from Mein Kampf, Hitler’s blue­print for world dom­i­na­tion and for the destruc­tion of the Jews. Al Muhana responded by claim­ing that Jews are “wicked” because the Tal­mud teaches them to treat non-Jews badly and to “suck the other’s blood.” 

Cit­ing Hitler’s geno­ci­dal anti-Jewish rant in Mein Kampf to val­i­date the Pro­to­cols fan­tasy of a Jew­ish con­spir­acy to achieve global dom­i­na­tion is not only absurd, but a dis­turb­ing reminder of the bla­tant anti-Semitism that is still broad­cast in that region.

Kuwaiti Officers Reportedly Force Two Arrested Men To Pose As Hitler For Photo

kuwait-migrants-hitler-twitter-nazi-salute-officers

Two arrested men report­edly forced by Kuwaiti offi­cers to give Nazi salute after mus­taches shaved to resem­ble Hitler.

Two migrant work­ers arrested by Kuwaiti law enforce­ment in a recent raid were appar­ently forced by offi­cers to pose for a photo giv­ing a Nazi salute after hav­ing their mus­taches shaved to resem­ble Hitler.

There is no indi­ca­tion that the offi­cers, who appar­ently posted the photo on social media, were act­ing on behalf of Kuwaiti authorities.

Accord­ing to the Kuwaiti daily Al Rai, the photo has caught the atten­tion of the Kuwaiti Min­istry of Inte­rior, which has issued orders to inves­ti­gate the mat­ter and to iden­tify the officers.

Reports of this inci­dent first appeared on Twit­ter on Octo­ber 3 when Sara Al-Darees, a Kuwaiti activist, posted the photo on her twit­ter account. Al-Darees gained inter­na­tional atten­tion in July 2013 when she was arrested on charges of Tweet­ing mes­sages deemed offen­sive to the Emir of Kuwait.

Accord­ing to Al Rai, three offi­cers arrested two migrant work­ers dur­ing a raid on an alco­hol pro­duc­tion facil­ity. Alco­hol is banned in Kuwait.

While the behav­ior of the offi­cers may be an iso­lated inci­dent, it serves as a reminder of the per­va­sive­ness of Hitler and Nazi imagery in the region. From smart phone appli­ca­tions to adver­tise­ments to bla­tant Holo­caust denial, the ubiq­uity of such imagery con­tributes to the triv­i­al­iza­tion of and desen­si­ti­za­tion to the unpar­al­leled hor­rors of the Holocaust.
