Australian Activist and Academic Tim Anderson Compares Israel to Nazi Germany on Hizbullah TV [Video]

In a November 21, 2022 show on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon), Australian activist and academic Tim Anderson compared Israel to Nazi Germany. He said that Israel’s “pseudo-racist theory” about a “mythical people” that owned the Levant has led to “large scale racialized massacres” in Gaza. He also claimed that the protests in Iran were engineered and financed by America and Saudi Arabia, and he said that this is similar to their actions in Syria in 2011, which led to the Syrian civil war. In addition, Anderson said that the war in Ukraine is a proxy war and is also similar to the situation in Syria, where he said foreign powers had financed the various militias.Tim Anderson was previously a lecturer at Sydney University and was terminated after one of his lectures featured a slide in which a Nazi swastika was superimposed over the Israeli flag.The MEMRI Lantos Project exposes anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in the Middle East region and Middle Eastern communities in the West with the aim of supporting legislation and educating media and the general public.

Iranian Sisters' Persian Version of “Bella Ciao” Gains Popularity with Backdrop of Protests in Iran [Video]

This clip features two videos posted to Instagram by a Persian woman named Samin Bolouri. In the first video, posted on July 12, 2020, Samin and her sister Behin are seen wearing hijabs and singing a Persian version of an Italian protest song titled “Bella Ciao”. In the second video, posted on September 16, 2022, Samin and Behin are seen without hijabs singing a different Persian version of the song. This second version of the song is linked to the widespread anti-regime protests that have been taking place in Iran since Jina (Mahsa) Amini died after being beaten and arrested by Iran’s morality police for not wearing her hijab properly. In the latter version, the sisters sang: “The cluster of our anger is thirsty for rain. Our rights are not petty… Finally, the chains of oppression will be broken by our hands.”
