The following is a scene from the Syrian-produced TV series Al-Shatat. Al-Shatat was first aired on Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV during the month of Ramadan 2003, and then on two Iranian channels during Ramadan 2004. Al-Mamnou' TV, a new Jordanian channel, is airing Al-Shatat during Ramadan 2005.
In this scence, Jews in a Romanian ghetto try a congregation member in a "Talmudic court" and then ritually murder him because he married a non-Jewish woman.
The accused, tied up: Water, water.
The head of the court, ordering different members of the congregation: You, hold his nose shut. You, open his mouth with tongs. You, pour lead into his mouth. You, cut off his ears. And you, stab his body with a knife before the lead kills him. Understood? This is a sacred Talmudic court. Any of you who fails in his mission, will be tried just like this criminal.
The accused, tied up: I want water. Water, water.
