  • Date / 29 November 2007

On 2nd November, IHEU together with three other NGOs wrote to Louise Arbour, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon with an urgent request to condemn the airing by Lebanese TV channel NBN of a programme presenting “The protocols of the Elders of Zion” as fact.

On 12 November, Louise Arbour replied and told IHEU that she had written to the Director of the Lebanese National Broadcasting Network “raising her very serious concerns about the use of demonstrably false material in a way that could inflame feelings or incite hatred and violence, urging him to exercise leadership to provide factual and responsible programming”. She thanked IHEU and the others for bringing the matter to her attention.
