US Palestinian TV program branded "anti-Semitic", pulled from

First nationwide Pro-Palestinian Television Program in the US is the
latest victim of Jewish attack on Free Press.

It is just another example of the fact that in America freedom of
speech has its limits, and particularly when the topic of discussion
happens to be Israel. Fall on the 'wrong side' of the truth, and a
person can lose his job or his platform for speaking his mind.

It seemed as if nothing could stop it. It went from having 2 viewers a
week to hundreds and then thousands and then hundreds of thousands and
then, once it gained syndication on an American cable and a Satellite
channel called Bridges TV, millions. It was being aired 5 times a week
for 5 months on Bridges TV with nothing but praise from both executives
and viewers alike, and then, out of the blue came a call from Bridges
informing the show's producer that they were coming under pressure from
"Jewish Cable Operators". Bridges' Programs Director and the show's
producer set up a system of rating for each program to inform Bridges
if the content of the show has 'Jewish' material or not. Apparently
though, this was not enough, as two weeks later the show was removed
from the Bridges TV line-up.

The program in question is called "Current Issues with Hesham Tillawi"
and runs Live every Thursday evening from 8-10 PM Central Time in the
US from Lafayette Louisiana. Besides running on cable, the program is
also streamed live and archived on the Internet where at present it is
watched in more than 63 countries around the world at
www.currentissues.tv. Tillawi, a Palestinian-American citizen is the
host of the show and has been making some impressive waves in the last
year with some of the guests he has interviewed, including members of
the US Congress, high ranking officials within the US military
establishment, international figures such as ex-Israeli nuclear
technician Mordechai Vanunu and many others.

More importantly though {and most likely the reason why the heat came
down from on high} is the fact that it is a program where there is no
such thing as political correctness when it comes to discussing the
goings on in the Middle East, and in particular how these items relate
to the state of Israel.

Late in 2005 Bridges showed interest in broadcasting Current Issues on
their network that spans the US. Bridges TV is a Muslim--owned channel
whose theme is dedicated to the issue of Islam and to the current
goings on in the Middle East. In December 2005 Bridges agreed to start
airing Current Issues and by the end of May the following year, Current
Issues was playing 5 times a week and getting rave reviews by Bridges
viewers. Then, in May 2006 Aasiya Zubair, Director of Programming at
Bridges TV informed Dr. Hesham Tillawi that some of the "Jewish cable
operators" located in areas of the country where Bridges TV is
broadcast had complained to them about the Current Issues program. She
also informed him that Bridges TV had fired one of their editors for
not editing some of Current Issues programs by taking out materials
that in their opinion was "offensive to Jews". Two weeks later Bridges
TV made the decision to stop airing the show and in a letter to Dr.
Hesham Tillawi Mrs. Zubair wrote the following notice:

"Dear Hesham, I would like to inform you that we will no longer be
airing Current issues anymore. I have been getting a lot of complaints
from our viewers," and in a follow-up letter Mrs. Zubair wrote:

"Dear Hesham, It is not about the cable operator, it is about the
customers too who by majority are Muslim and who have complained about
the show. For now I would suggest it is best to part ways."

Tillawi response was "How could the majority of "Muslim customers"
change their mind overnight regarding a show that is presenting current
events from an Arab and a Muslim point of view?"

Tillawi asked Bridges TV to produce those so-called complaints from
viewers. As he tells, it, they were unable to produce even one negative
comment. In prior conversations with Ms Zubair she stated that they
were getting many emails in support of the show.

"This is censorship, plain and simple" claims Tillawi. "Its a shame
that a channel claiming to be friendly to Muslims would remove the only
show being broadcast nationwide that tells the truth about Palestine,
Iraq, Afghanistan, Islam, etc. In its promotional material, it claims
to be a channel dedicated to "building bridges," but we say bridges can
only be built with the truth, as ugly as it may be."

When asked if he was surprised at this latest development, Tillawi's
answer was "Noâ*|I knew that this would happen eventually, I just did
not know that it would happen this quickly. Unfortunately you cannot
tell the truth about Israel indefinitely in the United States,
supposedly the freest country of the world." He continued his thoughts
on the matter with "We feel this shameful decision by Bridges TV
management will go down in infamy because now Muslims are censoring
other Muslims from telling the truth to the world about the thousands
of Palestinian, Iraqi, and Afghani children who are being killed by the
Israeli-American War machine."

The rest of us have to wonder what the reason was for this censure? Was
it the programs dealing with the use of Depleted Uranium in Iraq and
Afghanistan? Was it the interview with His Excellency Afif Safieh, the
Palestinian Ambassador to Washington telling the truth concerning the
Israeli atrocities against the Palestinians? Was it the interview with
the Syrian Ambassador revealing what America's intentions were in the
Middle East? Was it the interview with Dr Norman Finkelstein exposing
Zionism and what it is? Was it the interview with Congressman Paul
Findley exposing AIPAC and the Jewish control of congress? Was it the
interview with Mordechai Vanunu, the Israeli nuclear scientist who
exposed the Israeli Nuclear capacity? Was it the interview with Israel
Shamir who exposed the racist policies of his country, Israel? Was it
the interview with Dr. Steven Sniegoski who stated that the war against
Iraq was for Israel? Or could it be the interview with Alison Weir
exposing the reality of the Palestinian-Israeli issue? Maybe it was the
interview with Lt Col Karen Kwiatkowski, who worked at the Pentagon and
exposed the influence of the Neocons and the Israelis at the Defense
Department? The list goes on and on with interviews that the Main
Stream Media would not even touch due to the Jewish influence over the
media.

Tillawi added that "We always spoke out against this influence over the
media and now we ourselves have become victims of this influence. One
thing that hurts like hell is the fact that it was a Muslim who pulled
the plug to stop the show from reaching a nationwide audience."

It is interesting but probably not coincidental to note that a short
time before Bridges TV ended its association with Current Issues, the
ADL, domestic branch of Israeli Intelligence operating in the United
States, added Dr Hesham Tillawi to its list of most "notorious
anti-Zionist,anti-Semites". Those who are familiar with the tactics of
the ADL know that the typical way that they do business is to threaten
and intimidate anyone who is involved with the business of exposing the
truth as it pertains to Israel and the way that the Jewish agenda works
in the United States. Therefore it is not unreasonable to expect that
in some fashion Bridges TV was contacted by a representative of the ADL
and told to cease broadcasting episodes of Current Issues or face the
consequences.

When asked whether this latest setback would affect the way that he and
the producers of Current Issues do business, he said. "Absolutely it
willâ*|Now the gloves are coming off and we are not going to worry
about whose toes get stepped on when it comes to discussing the truth.
There is a great lesson here about appeasement and giving into the
demands of a bully. Bullies never get enough, and even when you give
them everything they want they still aren't satisfied."

This is not the end, but the beginning. Current Issues will continue
broadcast on Cox Cable, Amazonas Satellite and the Internet, until we
find a brave man or a brave woman who will put us back on nationwide
syndication.

Hesham Tillawi, PhD International Relations is a Palestinian American
writer, Political Analyst and a TV show host. His program Current
issues with Hesham Tillawi can be viewed Live every Thursday evening
between 9-11 PM Central Standard Time on Cox Cable system Channel 5 in

Freedom of speech? Freedom of press? Not for Palestinians!

There is no true freedom of speech in the USA. There may have been in the past, and we might regain it in the future, but it does not exist today.
