Norway To Block Anti-Semitic TV Station?

Facing growing levels of anti-Semitism among Muslim students in Norway, Norwegian officials are considering blocking an Egyptian Islamic TV station over anti-Semitic broadcasts.

Here's one appalling example of why Norway's Minister of Culture, Anniken Huitfeldt, calls Al-Rahma anti-Semitic and wants the Norwegian Media Authority to investigate:

MEMRI elaborates on the effects of the transmissions:

France already blocked Al-Rahma over this video featuring Egyptian cleric Hazem Shunam.

Isn't it time to restore the somewhat tarnished phrase
"Brainwashing" to describe what these Muslim leaders are doing to their children? And our Foreign policy clings to the tattered idea that sweet reason and
"negotiations" will lead to peace and security in the Middle East!
Could anything be more naive and dangerous to the world than the continuation of this idea in Washington??
