Rally Monkeys

Nothing gets a crowd in the streets and worked up for blood in Iran quite like Jerusalem Day, the Iranian version of Hate Week, held every year on the last Friday in Ramadan:

These images could be coming to your local satellite TV provider if Hizbullah has its way:

On October 10, the Iranian Student News Agency, ISNA, reported that Iran 's Hizbullah is planning to operate a new satellite TV channel, named Kheibar. [1]

According to ISNA, the Spokesman of Iran's Hizbullah, Mojtaba Bigdeli, said: "We are presently holding talks with satellite TV channels for airing our programs. So far, we have received proposals and members of Hizbullah's Central Council will announce their final decision in the near future."

Bigdeli also said the satellite TV channel Kheibar will become operational "in the next couple of months" and that Kheibar's programs will be "mainly broadcast in North America and Europe … Currently we are procuring the hardware."

The report goes on to say that "Bigdeli said the secretary of Iran's Hizbullah, Ayatollah Mohammad Baqer Kharrazi, has recommended that team launching Kheibar satellite TV should prepare the ground for collaboration among Muslim states, forge Islamic solidarity, eliminate Zionism and create consensus among political, cultural, and social forces."

It should be noted that Kheibar was a rich and fertile oasis north of Al-Madina, inhabited by Jews, and destroyed by Prophet Mohammad in 628. The fate of the Kheibar Jews today is used by Hamas as a symbol to the fight against the Jews and Israel.

Only the refusal of cable and satellite companies to commit to onerous content monitoring prevented Al-Jazeera from being broadcast in Canada. Even so, people who want to watch this garbage will do so on grey-market dishes anyway. Too bad that they won't be simulcast in English so that everyone can see these bastards for who they are, without the spin and distortion from the anti-American, anti-Israel, pro-Islamist CBC.
