Israel broadcasted porn on Palestinian TV in 2002 — “Is pornography freedom?” – E. Michael Jones

Linking to the article below, E. Michael Jones writes on Facebook, 1/2/20:

Is pornography freedom?
Yes or no?

Do the Israelis want to bring the Palestinians freedom?
Yes or no?

If porn is freedom, and the Israelis do NOT want to bring freedom to the Palestinians, then why did they broadcast porn on their TV stations in 2002?

DIARY

From Ramallah

Rita Giacaman

This report from Ramallah was first circulated on the Internet: at the time of going to press, no foreign journalist has been allowed to report from the town.

On 8 April 2002 at 1 p.m., the curfew was lifted in Ramallah for the second time in 11 days, and for a period of four hours. It gave some a chance to hunt for bread and eggs, and others to survey the damage done to their institutions, since in the previous lifting of the curfew people could barely concentrate on hunting for but not finding bread. But once locked up again, we began to wonder what the Army did inside the buildings it broke into. As gradual reports of plunder and stealing came in, many began to fear something much worse: the destruction of the institutional and cultural infrastructure of Palestinian life.

Although we don’t know for sure how much of this type of destruction there has been, eyewitness reports indicate that it is all-encompassing. No doubt it will take months to assess the extent of the damage, once we emerge from the current circumstances. Here is what we know so far.

1. Radio and television stations. Not only did the Israeli Army occupy most of the local radio and television stations early on, but on the second day of this onslaught, I turned on to watch Watan Television’s reporting of what was happening around us and was shocked to find a pornographic film instead. It took two days for this to stop: just think of children watching in the midst of all that is happening around them.
