Porn upsets Palestinians

Porn upsets Palestinians


PORN movies and programs in Hebrew are being broadcast by Israeli troops who have taken over three Palestinian television stations of Ramallah, irate residents of the besieged West Bank town have told AFP.

The offices of three local television and radio stations were occupied by soldiers yesterday morning, a few hours after tanks and hundreds of troops stormed the town in Israel's biggest offensive against the Palestinian Authority and its leader Yasser Arafat.

The soldiers started broadcasting the porn clips -- considered extremely offensive by most Muslims -- intermittently this afternoon from the Al-Watan, Ammwaj, and Al-Sharaq channels, the residents said.

"The pornographic movies started on Al-Watan television at around 3:30 pm," one 34-year-old Palestinian mother named Reema told AFP.

"I have six children at home, they have nowhere to go with what is going on here and can't even watch TV," she said angrily.

"It's not healthy really. I think the Israelis want to mess with our young men's heads," she said.

Anita, a 52-year-old mother of three children, complained about "the deliberate psychological damage caused by these broadcasts".

"I am furious, these are the people who are shooting at us that also play this disgusting trick on us," she said.

"We are desperate for news and constantly flipping channels and get these terrible pictures instead," adding that videos of the intifada were also shown backwards with "ideal terrorism" written in red across the screen.

"Luckily, there is no electricity in half of Ramallah," she said from her house in east Jerusalem where the channels are also available.

A fourth local station, whose premises were not seized by the army, ran a written message across its screen letting people know it was the Israelis who were behind the graphic scenes.

"Anything currently shown on Al-Watan and other local TV channels has nothing to do with Palestinian programs but is being broadcast by the Israeli occupation forces, we urge parents to take precautions," the message said.

The Israeli military denied that it had anything to do with the pornographic programming and instead blamed the Palestinian leaders.

"The Israeli security forces have no interest in putting pornographic and racist movies on Palestinian television," an army spokesman told AFP.

"The only reason we are in these buildings and in this city is to fight against terrorists and their infrastructure after giving the Palestinians various chances to it themselves," he said.

Palestinian leader Yasser "Arafat is willing to go low in order to make himself look better in this uncomfortable situation", he said.

Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon said any such broadcasting was "shameful", but said he was not aware of the Israeli army's involvement.

"I cannot believe that Israeli soldiers would engage in such despicable behaviour," he said.

Kill your television. That's the last thing I would be having children do in a war zone...

Strapping bombs to your body isn't really healthy either. How much do you have to mess with a kid's head to get him to do that?

Where's the ACLU when you need them?

LOL that just about says it all. I guess i find it kind of ironic that these filthy vicious savages would find sex offensive, but teaching infants to hate someone because of their belief in god and to commit suicidal acts of terror isn't offensive? Amazing what some people don't consider pornographic.

This coming from the people who apparently find nothing disgusting about sending their own children out to blow themselves up with innocent women and children in malls, parties and other public places.

Great find!

What would be even better is if these movies featured Palestinian females servicing Jewish men. That'd get 'em!

That being said, this is a legitimate news story and should've probably been posted there (not that I know where the hell to post anything anymore).

Ok, well here's what really bothers me about this situation. It bothers her that they're broadcasting porn over the television - does it bother her that her leaders are sending young people out to be suicide bombers??

Given the broad definition of pornography by Islamics, for all we know the Israelis could be broadcasting clips from Miss Universe contest.

While I disapprove, this seems to be kinda twisted: "I am furious, these are the people who are shooting at us that also play this disgusting trick on us," she said.

Here's a list of Hebrew slang terms (warning, some of it might be offensive to Puritans, who shouldn't be on Porn threads in the first place)

I don't know why they find it so offensive. The first thing most young Arabic men do when they come to this country is visit, apply for a job in, or open their own porn shops and/or liqour stores. The Isrealis should simply tell the Palestinians that it's no use blowing themselves up because all of Allah's virgins have gone to Hollywood to become pornstars.

Deep Throat: Garon Amok

(emphasis is on the second syllable for both words, both As are soft, and both Os are HARD, that's the way we like them)

Palestinian leader Yasser "Arafat is willing to go low in order to make himself look better in this uncomfortable situation", he said.

The videos are probably Yassirs private collection. I wouldn't doubt if Hammas and Hezbola use them as part of the indoctrination process, "you blow up - you get bl*****."

This actually reminds me of a movie I saw once(no not that kind of movie!).

It was a comedy where these two pranksters spliced porn(with a white woman and black man) into a tape being watched by a group of Klansman.

Well perhaps this will keep some of the Palestinians indoors watching porn rather than fighting in the streets.

I hear the Israelis are going to do a remake of Deliverance with Yessar Arafat in the Ned Beatty role.
