An anti-Israel program aired by China on CCTV

Israel protests

Tel Aviv (Israel) – The Israeli Embassy in the Chinese Capital Beijing has accused a Chinese overseas channel, CCTV of airing an anti-Jews programme

  1. The Embassy alleges that the Chinese State television channel CGTN aired a discussion program on the Gaza air-strikes. The panel was anti-Jews. We are shocked to see the anti-Jews program on China’s State television. Tweeting the discussion the Embassy said, “We have hoped that the times of the ‘Jew’s controlling the world’ conspiracy theories were outdated, unfortunately anti-Semitism has shown its ugly face again”.
  2. According to the Chinese statement, what was really objectionable in this three-minute program has not been ascertained still, as it was a public holiday. The case will be investigated later.
  3. CGTN host Zheng Junfeng questioned whether US support for Israel was truly based on shared democratic values ?“Some people believe that US pro-Israeli policy is traceable to the influence of wealthy Jews in the US and the Jewish lobby on US foreign policy makers”.
  4. According to Zheng Junfeng, Jews dominate the finance and the Internet sectors in the business world.
  5. Zheng Junfeng then accused the US, China’s top geopolitical rival, of using Israel as a ’beachhead’ in the Middle East and a proxy in its campaign to defeat pan-Arabism.
  6. No official comment has come from the CGTN channel in this regard. In China, the CCTV channel broadcasts programs for other countries.
