Islam Channel fined £20,000 after broadcasting show that contained ‘antisemitic hate speech’

The watchdog ruled that one episode of a religious education series contained three breaches of the Broadcasting Code

By: The JC, May 2021:

Ofcom has fined the Islam Channel £20,000 for broadcasting a programme that contained “antisemitic hate speech.”

The watchdog ruled that an episode of The Rightly Guided Khalifas, a religious education series broadcast in November 2018, contained three breaches of the Broadcasting Code.

Confirming that a hefty fine had been imposed on Islam Channel Limited, Ofcom referred to a decision it had made last October over the programme’s contents, which it said contained “uncontextualised hate speech” and breached Rules 2.3, 3.2 and 3.3 of the Code.

Explaining the decision, it said: “Ofcom’s Breach Decision found an episode of the programme The Rightly Guided Khalifas contained uncontextualized antisemitic hate speech which amounted to the abuse or derogatory treatment of Jewish people.

“The Breach Decision found this episode of The Rightly Guided Khalifas ascribed a perpetually negative characteristic to Jewish people; namely corrupting Holy Books and seeking the destruction of Islam in both ancient and more recent times.

“In addition, through the conflation of Israel and Jewish people the content characterised Jewish people as ‘tyrannical’ and having an ‘evil mind’. It was our decision that this content met Ofcom’s definition of hate speech and that Rule 3.2 was breached.

“The programme also used further negative and stereotypical terms to describe Jewish people, including that they were guilty of ‘this crime of distortion [of Quranic text]’.

“It also associated Jewish people with ‘tyranny’, ‘oppression’, ‘troublemaking’ and ‘poisonous acts’. We considered this constituted abusive and derogatory treatment of Jewish people in breach of Rule 3.3.

“In Ofcom’s view, this material would have been offensive to most people who do not share the antisemitic views expressed. We also considered this material would be highly offensive to Jewish people; practitioners of Judaism; and Christian and Muslim people (and others) who esteem the religion.

“In our view, there was insufficient context to justify the broadcast of such content, and it breached Rule 2.3 of the Code.”

The Islam Channel is an English language satellite television channel broadcast in 136 countries worldwide, including the UK.

Ofcom said a financial penalty was necessary to reflect the serious nature of the breaches, and to act as an effective incentive to comply with the code, both for the Licensee and other licensees.

In a statement to the JC the Islam Channel said:” This programme was not made by Islam Channel but was bought in from a third-party production house.

“The episode had been marked as not fit for broadcast and was broadcast in error due to a mistake made by a junior member of staff. Islam Channel regrets that this programme was shown and voluntarily broadcast an apology to this effect.

“Since this breach, which took place nearly two years ago, Islam Channel has undergone significant changes in management and personnel and has implemented new compliance and training procedures to ensure that no such breach occurs in future.

“Islam Channel is committed, not only to providing a voice for the Muslim community in the media, at a time when Islamophobia is at an all-time high, but also to promoting harmonious relations between diverse ethnic and faith communities through its efforts both on and off-air.

“As such it would never knowingly, deliberately or recklessly allow for members of any faith, sect or creed to be offended, as this would be a direct and gross contradiction of its mission and values.”

Islamic Jew Hatred

The Qur’an on the Jews

The hour will not be established until you fight the Jews, and the stone and the tree behind which a Jew will be hiding will say: “O Muslim! O Servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, so come and kill him.”[49]

See Antisemitic Hadith: ‘The Prophecy Of The Rock And The Tree’

“Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews…” (5:82).

“Curses were pronounced on those among the Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the tongue of David and of Jesus the son of Mary: because they disobeyed and persisted in excesses.” (5:78).

“Is it ever so that when they make a covenant a party of them set it aside? The truth is, most of them believe not. And when there came to them a messenger from Allah [Muhammad], confirming what was with them [the Torah], a party of the people of the Book threw away the Book of Allah behind their backs, as if (it had been something) they did not know!” (2:100-101).

“The People of the Book know well that that is the truth from their Lord. Nor is Allah unmindful of what they do” (2:143-144).

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (9:29).

“And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they!” (9:30)

The Jews killed their prophets (2:61; 2:87; 2:91; 3:21; 3:112; 3:181; 3:183; 4:155; 5:70), and boast “we killed the Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary” (4:157).

“Allah hath heard the taunt of those who say: ‘Truly, Allah is indigent and we are rich!’ We shall certainly record their word and (their act) of slaying the prophets in defiance of right, and We shall say: ‘Taste ye the penalty of the Scorching Fire!’” (3:181)

“Why do not the rabbis and the doctors of Law forbid them from their (habit of) uttering sinful words and eating things forbidden? Evil indeed are their works.” (5:63)
