Hezbullah's Al Manar TV says Jews invented Superman to conquer the world
The powerful Islamist terror group Hezbullah, which aims to destroy Israel, continues to push anti-Jewish hysteria of the most bizarre kind. But you wouldn't know it from Western media
Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV has recently been pushing propaganda to the effect that the Jews created Superman as part of a plan to control America and then push Jewish goals all over the world, The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has reported.
"[The American Jews] felt rejected by real American society. Therefore, they tried to change society's opinion of them by inventing cinematic characters that would serve as role models. That's when it all began. Everybody wanted to be like Superman, the hero from outer space, who could not fit in society as Superman, so he invented a character that was better suited for American society – the feeble, bespectacled Clark Kent," MEMRI quoted an Al-Manar reporter as saying.
As reported by MEMRI, the segment then moved into a back and forth interview with Professor Farroukh Majidi as follows:
MAJIDI: "If you hit the heart of somebody, the result is short term, but if you hit his brain, then the result is long term."
REPORTER: "Incidentally, Superman was invented by the Jew, Joe Schuster."
MAJIDI: "They try to make you believe that what you think comes out of yourself."
REPORTER: "Hollywood is a Jewish invention that changed the way Americans view America, and created dreams, rather than reality. They managed to make the Americans live the dream, divorced from reality. Undoubtedly, the goal was to take over the greatest superpower in the world, to control all aspects of its daily life, and to harness it in the service of Jewish goals worldwide. Whenever someone challenges this, Superman is ready to deal with him."
The package continued with references to the "so-called 'Holocaust'", and conspiracy theory references of the kind that are typical for Hezbollah and other such organisations.
Mainstream Western media outlets such as the BBC, CNN, the Guardian and the New York Times almost never report on such matters leaving the Western public largely unaware of the realities of the political culture in much of the Middle East.
