What Goes Out, Comes Down

The COGAT and/or IDF Spokespersons were slow off the mark to adequately clarify the actions taken against the Watan broadcasting station (the Pals. weren't).

As we now know, the transmissions were interfering in a dangerous fashion with air traffic controllers:

Overnight, IDF soldiers accompanied an operation of the Israeli Ministry of Communications to close two pirate television stations in Ramallah, followed by countless requests to seize their broadcasting, which significantly interrupts other legal broadcasting stations. During the operation, in accordance with law, Communications Ministry representatives confiscated several transmitters. The station's illegal broadcasting interferes with aircraft communication.

But - as Challah points out - the real villain is Mahmoud Abbas, the hypocrite as he calls him.

And, of course, let's not forget what type of incitement and hatred airs on stations like these.
