Turkish TV airs blood libel propaganda; Reuters buys the popcorn

State-run TRT 1 television in Turkey recently aired a new fictional series dramatizing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  Amongst other horrendous scenes is one of an Israeli soldier deliberately shooting a baby being held up by his father. Though Reuters' Sangwon Yoon acknowledges that Israeli newspapers, academics, and politicians are appalled by the incitement and antisemitism betrayed by the show, Reuters embeds an 11-minute YouTube clip for its AxisMundi Jerusalem audience.

We eagerly await Reuters next feature attraction, The Eternal Jew.
