A cross-communal group of rabbis have joined the voices calling for media mogul Rupert Murdoch to remove the controversial right wing pundit Glenn Beck from Fox News.
The rabbis have taken out a full-page advertisement in the Wall Street Journal newspaper condemning Mr Beck’s repeated attacks on Holocaust survivor and financier George Soros.
In the advert the group criticised as “inappropriate” a programme broadcast on the channel last year called “Puppet Master”, in which Mr Beck accused Mr Soros of helping “to send the Jews to the death camps”.
Jewish organisations have condemned as misleading an advert that appeared in National Geographic Traveler magazine for implying that Palestine extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River.
The Zionist Federation, which has complained to the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA), said the advert also gave “false impressions” by describing Palestine as a country and suggesting that the city of Hebron was under Palestinian control.
