PALESTINIANS CALLED 'FILTHY ANIMALS'

Washington DC: American TV station MSNBC network’s programme "Imus in the Morning" program referred to Palestinians as "filthy animals" and suggested that they all be killed. Here is the text of what went on the programme on 12 November in the following discussion about live coverage of Palestinian President Yasser Arafat's funeral:

COLLEAGUE: They're all brainwashed, though. That's what it is. And they're stupid, to begin with, but they're brainwashed now. Stinking animals. They ought to drop the bomb right there, kill 'em all right now.

COLLEAGUE: Look at this. Animals. Animals!

As early as 1985, he was forced to apologize for referring to Arabs as "goat-humping weasels." (Sunday Mail, 21 April 1985) He has also been criticized for using the derogatory term "raghead." (Accuracy in Media) In a reference to the crash of an Iranian airliner earlier this year that killed 43 passengers, Imus said, "When I hear stories like that, I think who cares." He then stated: "Too bad it wasn't full of Saudi Arabians" (National Iranian American Council). «
