An Egyptian television channel that recently claimed that an episode of “The Simpsons” proved that the United States had conspired to cause the Arab Spring revolutions is now claiming that the show was concocted by Jewish lobbies and think tanks and financed by Rupert Murdoch.
The latest claims were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
During the May 11 broadcast, host Rania Badawi exclaimed, “[The Simpsons] is a very influential TV series in the U.S. This animated series is an American production, behind which are basically Jewish lobbies. I’d like to tell you that this animated series is for adults, not children. It deals with political, social, international, and local issues through its animated characters.”
She continued, “Even more important is the fact that the writers of this series belong to groups of think tanks. They are not written by regular people, using their imagination and their dramatic ability. Instead, they are written by think tanks, by people working in research. They write this series, which is highly influential in America.”
“It should be noted that this show is financed or produced by Fox News, behind which is Rupert Murdoch, the most influential and dangerous man in the world – just like Mister X, the Egyptian movie character – when it comes to finances and media,” claimed Badawi.
“He owns many media outlets and is one of the most influential people in the world. He is one of the people who determines who will become U.S. president and who will fail,” she added.
“Rupert Murdoch is one of the founders of several very powerful Jewish lobbies in the U.S. A perusal of his biography reveals that he was one of the strongest supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood at one point. All this was done by Rupert Murdoch, one of the main financiers of Fox News, which created The Simpsons series,” said Badawi.
