Following are excerpts from an interview with Dr. Ali Al-Hamadi, head of the Creativity Center in the UAE, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on June 17, 2010.
Dr. Ali Al-Hamadi: The media is controlled by the Zionists, who have not been known, throughout the history of mankind, to be neutral, accurate, or transparent. They are not merely deceivers, but the epitome of deceit. Most Western media outlets, especially the American ones...
It should be noted that the US media influences not only the American people. Seventy percent of what is published in the world is "cooked" in the United States. Some studies point to this.
The TV channels –Fox, CNN, NBC, CBS, and others – are controlled by Jews. More than 300 extremely influential dailies, weeklies, and periodicals in the US are owned by the Jews.
If you read about the literature and heritage of America, you will see that they consider former US President (sic) Benjamin Franklin to be one of their greatest minds. When you read about US heritage, you encounter words written in ink of gold. The Americans endorse the words of Franklin, but when he talks about the Jews, they ignore his words completely.
He lived in 1779, and delivered a famous speech. Addressing the American people, he talked about an immense danger that faced them. He said: "Do not think that by achieving our independence, the United States is safe from all danger. There is an immense danger..." These were his words. "An immense danger faces the American people – the proliferation of Jews in the United States." He went on to say: "The Jews are devils and bats. We must expel these sinners..." These are his words, not mine. "We must expel this group of sinners from the United States, and if you don't do this immediately, our future generations will curse, when they find themselves under the boots of the Jews."
The Jews excel in distorting our image. Take, for example, [an ad] for detergents. What did they do in this ad, which appeared at one point in the Western media?
Of all the people in the world, they took an Arab, and then they took a beautiful girl and put the detergent in her hand. The girl said: "Nothing can withstand this detergent. It will clean anything – even an Arab." Then she began to clean the Arab. She kept cleaning the Arab for a long time, but then she saw that the Arab was as filthy as he had been before.
At the end of this short ad, there was a message: "Laboratory tests have proven that the filth of an Arab does not stem from a problem with the detergent. The reason is that an Arab can never be clean."
These are things that are being published in the media, and lots of people watch. The West participates in this distortion.
