Following are excerpts from the first episode of the Syrian-produced TV series "Al-Shatat," as aired by Iran's Channel 2 TV during Ramadan 2009. The channel aired the series' first episode on August 20, 2009. (To view this clip on MEMRI TV, visit http://www.memri.org/legacy/clip/2222 )
The 30-episode Al-Shatat series has been aired several times previously, including during Ramadan 2003, by Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV  ; during Ramadan 2004, by two Iranian TV channels  ; and during Ramadan 2005, by Jordan's Al-Mamnou' TV.  It purports to tell the story of Zionism, and, like the Egyptian series "Knight Without a Horse" that aired during Ramadan 2002, depicts a "global Jewish government" that is described in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It also depicts the notorious blood libel - Jews slaughtering a Christian child to use his blood for Passover matzos.
Al-Manar TV's airing of the series in 2003 was the main reason for the channel's removal from the European Eutelsat satellites. Iranian Sahar TV was banned in France due to its airing of objectionable content that included "Al-Shatat."

Amschel Rothschild: "We Are Superior to All Nations... We Must Dominate the World"
Amschel Rothschild: "All the nations that have accepted non-Jewish faiths should be destroyed and annihilated. They should be uprooted. They are wrong and illegitimate. Therefore, take control of them both in secret and openly. You should rule them with might, deceit, and vigilance. Do not allow any nation to share your domination of the world.
"We must always bear in mind that we are superior to all nations. Superior to them all. Amen."
Sons of Amschel Rothschild: "Amen."
Amschel Rothschild: "You should know that we have been granted an unparalleled honor - to dominate the world, by means of capital, knowledge, politics, by means of killing, or any other ploy. We must dominate the world..."
One of the sons: "I don't understand anything. Could someone explain what he means?"
Amschel Rothschild: "If you listen to the end, son, you will understand. We have been promised revenge on those who have dispersed us and overcome us. That is why we have been commanded to secretly establish a Jewish government. I am proud to be a member of that government. The mission of this government is to protect the Jewish people, and to rule the entire world. We should use mercenaries and our own people, who have infiltrated various governments and who head them, and thus impose our views and ideas."
One of the sons: "Rest assured, father."
"You Should All Work Together to Drown Each of the Countries of Europe in Blood and Massacres"
Amschel Rothschild: "My role and my mission have come to an end, and now, it is your turn. It is not easy to control Europe. Therefore, you should all join forces. You should all work together to drown each of the countries of Europe in blood and massacres. All the cities of Europe should be full of bloodshed. Wars and conflicts should reign in Europe in its entirety."
Amschel Rothschild: "Anslem?"
Anslem Rothschild: "Yes, father."
Amschel Rothschild: "Germany is your responsibility. I ask you not to let it end a war before it has entered another."
Anslem Rothschild: "It will be done. I'm ready."
Amschel Rothschild: "And you Salomon - you remain in Austria. I have entrusted you with the most despicable country. Britain will also help you."
Salomon Rothschild: "Whatever you say, father."
Amschel Rothschild: "Carl."
Carl Rothschild: "Yes, father."
Amschel Rothschild: "I want you to use all your ingenuity to destroy Rome, without distressing the pope."
Carl Rothschild: "Fine, father."
Amschel Rothschild: "Now it is your turn, James, my son. France... You must gain more control over it than the king himself."
James Rothschild: "I will do so, father."
Amschel Rothschild: "Now, I want you all to swear on this book that you will carry out my will to annihilate the world."
One of the sons: "I swear I will carry out your will."
The other sons: "So do we."
