To put things in prespective regarding the Ekraa channel that broadcasted the segment of the 3 years old girl. The Arab Satellite broadcast all this channels payed by the Saudi Regime to try to brainwash Arab Americans in America

I am the producer of the Arab American Television. Because I did not submit my programming to the fanatic point of view of the Saudi's they have destroyed twenty years of building an independant Television in America.

The owner of " Ekraa channel" is only a front to the King and his familly in Saudi Arabia. They have offices all over the US to intimidate and take away the freedom of speech that we gained by becoming Americans.

Arab American Television Started broadcasting in America since 1980 but in 1990 the Saudi's start fighting us until they succeeded to take AATV off the Air from the International Channel and used our air time to broadcast their own fanatic propaganda here in America.

As AATV in 1993 had an agreement with the Egyptian Channel to Broadcast here in America. Again the Saudis fought hard and bribed high officials in Egypt ,and succeeeded to take our exclusive agreement with the Egytian Channel from AATV, and used the Egyptian Channel and our own viability business plan to enter the homes of Arab and Muslim Americans to broadcast here in America {I emphesize here in America}; against America, Jews and Christians even against moderate Muslims in America.

I plead with any one who can help us to get our voice heard and our story out.
I am being harrassed by the expensive lawyers that the Saudis hired to intimidate me.
They have also succeeded to almost put AATV out of business after 22 years of continuous broadcasting.
