An Iranian film that aired on the country’s Channel 1 television depicts Jews as money-hungry and murderous thugs who steal homes and land and leave corpses and despair in their wake.
“Saturday Hunter,” which was aired in Iran last month, centers on a man and his grandson as the latter is indoctrinated in the former’s ways.
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which provided translated subtitles, describes the crudely anti-Semitic film as the story of Benjamin, a young boy who is brought to Israel to be raised by his grandfather Hanan. The grandfather, who hangs around with armed soldiers and religious Jews, is the leader of a group of Jews who massacre Arabs and “seek God-like powers.”
The stereotype of the greedy Jew is clearly depicted, as Hanan claims to possess the ability to “absolve” people of their sins through financial payment. He explains to those who come to him because they wish to have their sins removed: “This is the penalty for those who ridicule the laws of Moses. You have to pay these indulgences. In order to escape the law of God, you must pay this money. The God of the Jews is too lenient with you. If I were in His shoes, I would take your lives, not just your money.”
I think I’m going to kill the Iranian ambassador in Chili and burn some kebab restaurants to the ground. Who’s with me?
