The truth shall make ye fret

MEMRI is an Israeli outfit that tranlates the Arab language media into English. Period. Like all other human beings, the people at MEMRI have their biases. But that's not why people read MEMRI. They just translate both extremist and moderate voices in the Middle East, show TV clips, and publish separate scholarly analyses.  With footnotes and sources, just like scholars should.

MEMRI does what BBC News used to do ——— tell the truth without discernible bias. That is how they have gained credibility.

So now they've got a member of Syria's Baathist "Parliament" all upset.
Here is one complaint from the gentleman. MEMRI is too accurate!

"Recently, MEMRI wrote a biased study on a statement of mine on Syrian TV, in which I spoke about the noble Prophet's efforts to cleanse Medina of the Jews' deceit and filth. [Here]

"We all know that in the settlements of Qurayza, Qaynuqa', and Al—Nadhir in Medina, refuse and filth filled the streets, and that a Jewish neighbor use= d to dump his refuse at the doorstep of the noble Prophet.

"But MEMRI's website thought that this was an antisemitic statement, and that it also contains racist nationalism..."

Well,... yes, come to think of it.

By the way, the Prophet wiped out those three Jewish settlements without a qualm of conscience.
