One pro-Israel activist contends that a Dutch-based Christian television channel in the Netherlands is off the air because a cable provider pandered to the complaint of a Palestinian viewer who didn't like its pro-Israel programming.
Proclaiming Justice to the Nations President Laurie Cardoza-Moore – who is also the producer of Focus on Israel, which is carried on 21 media partners around the world – recently pointed out that one of these partners, Family 7, a 24/7 Christian channel in the Netherlands, was removed by a service provider following a complaint about Focus on Israel.
"Somebody must have been flipping through the channels and found our show and decided to watch it that day,” Cardoza-Moore ventured. “And they called in to complain to the network provider – and that's when they pulled the program.”
The conservative leader insists that two similar complaints in such a short period of time is not a circumstance
“So the team at Family 7 believes it was a Dutch Palestinian viewer who had come across the program and decided to take issue with it," Cardoza-Moore added.
The pro-Israel advocate said that she is not surprised this happened – especially considering the climate and culture in Europe these days.
"Free speech is being suppressed,” the pro-Israel advocate contended. “You can't communicate truth based on the evidence.”
Cardoza-Moore argued that there is no logical reason for the censorship.
“There was nothing in that program that was inaccurate,” she argued. “It was historically accurate; the evidence is there, and unfortunately, if you speak the truth now, you get condemned for doing it."
Cardoza-Moore hopes that Family 7 will take legal action in the Dutch courts to restore its programing on the network provider.
