Long-Term MEMRI

The famous MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, came by to speak to the whole crew here at Jewish Impact Films, to see what we could do to better explain the organization and its goals in short spots…and, let me tell you, I was very impressed. Truth is, I had never actually seen MEMRITv, MEMRI’s great library of transcripted and translated clips from Arab and Iranian TV.
They are pretty shocking, for the most part. Some good parts–MEMRI makes a point of it to translate reformists because, to quote their spokesman, “we have found that a reformist who gets airtime ends up in jail and not dead”–but a whole lot of hatred and incitement. It goes to show: Terrorism begins in the home, by the TV, and will not end until that source of propaganda is quieted. Check it out for yourself.
