<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> But for one day at least, one member of Parliament -- Tom Watson (Lab., West Bromwich East) -- focused his considerable ire statesward at Fox News' Rupert Murdoch and inciteful host Glenn Beck.

It all went down as part of a larger discussion on anti-Semitism in the media, and the Glenn Beck show, which is available on Sky TV on Knifecrime Island. Citing both Beck's show and Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, Watson ran down both numerous instances of anti-Semitic content as well as a litany of glib invocations of Nazis and the Holocaust:

I hope we all agree that that is a disturbing number of instances to raise those terms, in a way that is both irresponsible and does not provide any educational or beneficial basis for doing so; for instance, labelling President Obama a "Nazi." The Holocaust Educational Trust has said:

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>"One of the best ways to combat anti-semitism and prejudice of all kinds is to encourage tolerance and respect twinned with advocacy of engagement with civil society and the democratic process."

The Glenn Beck show in no way achieves those vitally important aims.</span> That type of journalism is dangerous and can have wide-ranging negative effects on society. The kind of material broadcast by Glenn Beck is not unique; a number of other "shock jocks" operate in the States. However, none has displayed intolerance on such a frequent and irresponsible scale as Glenn Beck. It is vital that that kind of "news" is not made or broadcast in the UK. However, the proposed acquisition of BSkyB by News Corp means that there is an increased threat of its becoming a reality.</div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">"At the same time, Roger Ailes was interviewed by Tina Brown's Daily Beast about NPR's decision to fire one of its commentators, who also appears on Fox News. The commentator had said that, upon boarding a plane and seeing someone dressed in Muslim garb, he gets nervous. A silly comment but one that did not seem to warrant dismissal. Speaking of NPR officials, <span style='font-size: 17pt'>Ailes said: 'They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don't want any other point of view.'"</span> </div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">That was the wind up for Watson's parting shot:

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>If Glenn Beck were here today I would say to him: "Glenn Beck, you are a bigot. You bring shame to your country, not because you lack balance, but because you are an unthinking buffoon. Rupert Murdoch tolerates you because you are his useful idiot.</span> He uses you to get a foothold in the doors of the powerful. Like his phone-hacking journalists and his pugnacious leader-writers in Australia, you are expendable. Let us hope he disposes of your nasty brand of intolerance sooner rather than later."

It is Rupert and James Murdoch who should answer for bigots such as Glenn Beck and phone hackers such as Clive Goodman and Glen Mulcaire. They employ them. They promote them. They are responsible for them. It is time for thinking citizens in the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia to unite against the Murdochs' vicious brand of politics that masquerades as publishing. </div></div>

Do you have any clue what influence Nazi Germany had on the post war Arab world?

Do you have any clue what influence Wall Street and British capital had on Nazi Germany?

Do you have any clue what influence British spy agencies in their day, and US spy agencies after Britain withdrew from the area, had in creating, sustaining and using radicalized Arabs such as the Moslem Brotherhood?
