Germany Bans Al-Manar: So What?
It's nice to see Germany taking a stand against Al-Manar by banning Hezbollah's TV station. But Deutsche Welle makes me wonder how much the ban really matters:
The ban will prevent al-Manar from advertising or fundraising in Germany and block the reception of the channel in German hotels. Private homes, however, will still be able to tune into the station.
