Australia Seeks to Block Al-Manar Broadcasts

Aussie_satelliteAustralia is trying to block Al-Manar broadcasts from Indonesia. Excellent coverage, well-rounded coverage in The Age. See also Andrew Bolt, who posted some videos of Al-Manar's violent kiddy programs.

The Washington Times explains why clamping down on Al-Manar doesn't contradict freedom of expression:

. . . the issue is not al Manar's role as a television station but its role in facilitating the activities of Hezbollah, an organization that has killed more Americans than every other terrorist group save al Qaeda.

"Any entity maintained by a terrorist group -- whether masquerading as a charity, a business or a media outlet -- is as culpable as the terrorist group itself," said Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Stuart Levey.
