Finally -- Great News!

From a Jordanian Embassy release:

It has come to our attention that a controversial program entitled "Al-Shatat" or "The Diaspora" has been broadcast from an independent/private channel entitled "Mamnou'" operating from the Media Free Zone in Jordan, which is not subject to Jordanian Law. The program itself was not broadcast from any Jordanian channel.

"Al- Shatat" drew concerns for inciting hate. Accordingly, the program has been stopped from the private channel as of Tuesday, October 25th 2005. The stoppage was only done through personal intervention of responsible Jordanians.

Yeah, well that and a letter of protest sent by 24 American rabbis. Way to go getting that hate-fest off the air!

Syria still broadcasts this vomit to the Palestinians.
About a year ago it went on air in France via Al-Manar.

Well, that is some good news. I have to wonder if there wasn't any exposure would any responsible Jordanians have stopped it.

It is good news that at least one vitrolic program against Jews has been taken off at least one Arab channel.

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by this. Jordan—a kinder, gentler dysfunctional Arab/Islamic fear society.

Now I know why I'm supposed to teach all the different verb forms. It would have had been clearer if it had read: "even if you hadn't..."
