Jordan stopped the broadcast of an anti-Semitic television series. Mammou, a private television station, had been running “Al-Shatat,” or “The Diaspora,” a Syrian-made series that revives a number of anti-Semitic canards including Jewish world control and the blood libel. A group of rabbis that had met with Jordanian King Abdullah II in September wrote him a letter urging him to stop the broadcasts. The rabbis’ protest was organized by The David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies.
