Al-Hiwar TV: Islamists' Loudspeaker in Europe
by Mudar Zahran
The British communications regulator and watchdog organization, Ofcom, recently fined an Islamic TV £105,000 ($158,000) for airing a speech that condoned murder as a punishment for blasphemy.
In its explanation of the fine, Ofcom said the TV channel, DM Digital, had aired a speech by an Islamic scholar who made remarks "likely to encourage or incite the commission of crime or to lead to disorder."
DM Digital, however, is not the only Islamic TV station in the UK "likely to encourage or incite the commission of crime or lead to disorder."
