Remember British politician Lord Ahmed, who spoke of a Jewish conspiracy after being jailed for causing a deadly road accident while texting behind the wheel? He subsequently “completely and unreservedly” apologised to “the Jewish community” for the remarks.
I’m beginning to think that apology wasn’t so sincere.
British politician Lord Nazir Ahmed has condemned the decision by the international Satellite providers to take dozens of Iranian channels, including Press TV, off the air, saying the “Zionist lobby” is to blame for the ban.
Lord Nazir told Press TV that the West has been “really selective” in what people watch around the world, adding that when they don’t like a particular media or a particular government they simply switch it off.
“Freedom of speech, and freedom of expression and freedom of media should be universal and it’s very unfortunate that the Zionist lobby does not like Press TV and many of the other outlets of Iran and that’s why, the pressure is so much that they need to be switched off,” Muslim British peer said.
