MEMRI: the Israeli propaganda outlet

I was taking a look at the Twitter account of MEMRI, which was founded by a "former" Israeli intelligence official.  It is a joke really: a compilation of the utterances of Arab/Muslim kooks, crazies, buffoons, and fanatics.  It gives such a distorted image (through often unreliable translations by its Lebanese right-wing staff) of Arab politics and media.  This is like devoting a website to translate into Arabic the utterances of US Christian kooks, crazies, and fanatics.
