When ITV Interviewed An Actual Terror Supporter About Her Encounters With “Islamophobia”

Earlier this month, Britain’s ITV News aired an interview with British palestinian Arab woman Latifa Abouchakra on Islamophobia in the UK. In it, she complained about being ‘called a terrorist’ by strangers in the street.

It turns out the strangers in the street were on to something.

Not long after the ITV News piece aired, it was revealed she works for Iran’s Press TV on its antisemitic show Palestine Declassified, even heading an episode after the Hamas massacre, in which she described it as “resistance”:

If that wasn’t bad enough, she uploaded the following video to her Instagram after the massacre, in which she could not help hide her pure joy over it:

Did I mention that in 2020, the Global Peace Institute named her as one of its 40 under 40 Peace Champions?

ITV have since apologized for interviewing her. But as the Jewish Board of Deputies president Marie van der Zyl told them:

“ITV’s decision to invite on Ms Abouchakra was an astonishingly bad one. As a 20-second internet search could have informed your channel’s researchers, Ms Abouchakra is a reporter for Palestine Declassified, a show produced by Press TV, the state channel of the Iranian Ayatollahs’ regime.”

No word yet on whether the Global Peace Institute will rescind its honor.
