Samizdata: I am not making this up

It is no secret that in Europe the anti—American, anti—Israel propaganda machine is operating full tilt. How bad is it? Samizdata writes this report, concluding "I am not making this up."

As I type these words, Britain's Channel 4 is airing a major piece of breath—taking propoganda.

This two—hour prime—time 'documentary' is called 'The Doomsday Code' and purports to be a ciritical examination of the violent, apocolyptic, end—of—the—world ideology of (wait for it)...American Christians!

The story so far:

American Christians and Israelis are conspiring to bring about a global nuclear holocaust and this is why they are attacking Islam
Americans are deliberately causing global warming as a part of their monstrous plot to realise 'End Times'

The only hope for mankind lies with the UN but its effectiveness is being undermined by the "corrosive hostility" of the fundamentalist Christian Americans

I cannot find any specific programme website to which to link but there is a link to the website of the production company which is somehwat illuminating:

The Doomsday Code is produced by Fozia Khan and directed by James Quinn. It was commissioned by Aaquil Ahmed, Commissioning Editor for History, Science, Religion and Arts at Channel 4.

It is still broadcasting and has now moved on to Africa which, allegedly, is proving to be a fertile recruiting ground for the insanely violent American Evangelicals who are (among other things) doing their best to facilitate the spread of AIDS in accordance with the Book of Revelation.

Fourth Estate or Fifth Column?
