Syrian regime TV

I watched part of a political discussion on Syrian regime TV yesterday.  It was just crazy.  They hosted, among others, a Lebanese former ambassador, who traced the "conspiracy against Syria" to Napoleon because of his plan to found the state of Israel.  Kid you not.  The former Lebanese ambassador in Kazakhstan, a certain Asaf Nasir, related a story when he was on Kazakh TV.  He said that the director of the TV approached him off the air and told him that if two people had a fight on Mars, a "Jew is behind it." The guests nodded approvingly.  There is a clear anti-Jewish tone in the recent discussions on Syrian regime TV.  It seems to be the last refuge of Ba`thist scoundrels.
