We are writing to bring to your attention the outrageous
comments broadcast on MSNBC talk show " Imus In The Morning", making
offensive remarks laden with hate and racism against the Palestinian people. The
details of these remarks are as follows:
On a November 12, 2004 MSNBC talk show, Imus In The
Morning, hosts were discussing Yasser Arafat's funeral. The
conversation that ensued contained the following references to
Palestinians: "They're all brainwashed...and they're stupid to begin
with...Stinking animals. They ought to drop the bomb right there, kill 'em
all right now".
These remarks are clearly in violation of our Canadian
laws of hate, and should not be allowed to be broafcast in our
We are writing to request full investigation of this
matter and taking effective action against the perpetrators of this hate and
promotion of violence.
