The U.S. State Department has awarded the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, $200,000 in funding toward its research on anti-Semitism.
(Press TV) -- by Marjan Asi --
This move is being criticized by many Americans who view MEMRI, a controversial media watchdog and translation organization, as a propaganda tool for a particular foreign policy position.
MEMRI has come under scrutiny for being selective in what it chooses to translate as well as inaccuracy in its translating.
Most recently, MEMRI was cited by the Norway terrorist in his manifesto. Anders Breivik mentions MEMRI or MEMRITV 23 times in justifying his Islamophobic sentiments.
In a press release announcing the grant, the State Department said it was funding a MEMRI project, “that documents anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial and Holocaust glorification in the Middle East.” But according to Alison Weir of the Council for the National Interest, bigotry against other groups is much more prevalent.
Additionally, MEMRI's founders include Israeli military intelligence officials and its advisors include, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, right-wing politician John Bolton, Norman Podhoretz and Bernard Lewis, all Bush-era conservatives which Weir argues is unbalanced in coverage of Middle East media.

THE BRUTAL ZIONIST ROLE IN THE HOLOCAUST
THE PRICE OF ZIONISM:
"If I am asked, "Could you give from the UJA moneys to rescue Jews, 'I say, NO! and I say again NO!"
Izaak Greenbaum -- head of Jewish Agency Rescue Committee

Addressed to the Zionist Executive Council.
"One Cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Poland"
ZIONISM IN THE AGE OF THE DICTATORS
“The old ones will pass. They will bear their fate or they will not.” Chaim Weizmann, the first president of Israel, made this Zionist policy very explicit:
The hopes of Europe’s six million Jews are centered on emigration. I was asked: Can you bring six million Jews to Palestine? I replied, No. ... From the depths of the tragedy I want to save ... young people [for Palestine]. The old ones will pass. They will bear their fate or they will not. They are dust, economic and moral dust in a cruel world ... Only the branch of the young shall survive. They have to accept it.
Chaim Weizmann reporting to the Zionist Congress in 1937 on his testimony before the Peel Commission in London, July 1937. Cited in Yahya, p. 55.
