Anne Frank: Israeli spy

2089214347_df3a7e085eWill there be a Lebanese Pullitzer prize for the crackerjack investigative reporters at Hezbollah’s Al-Manar television network? Al Manar’s ace newshounds have uncovered a nefarious Zionist plot to use Anne Frank to brainwash Lebanese schoolchildren.

In this clip, you can see the earnest young Hezbollah reporter penetrating a heavily guarded Lebanese bookstore to purchase The Diary of Anne Frank, which is used to teach eighth-grade English in Lebanese schools. The brazen bookseller dares to admit that many schools use this text.

Despite the risk of  Zionist contamination, the Al-Manar journalist holds the book up to the camera as it zooms in on offensive passages, such as a question on where Anne Frank hid from the Nazis.  “Such a book is definitely a violation of the penal code,”  says Lebanon’s Chairman of the Authority for Banning Zionist Products. “This is clearly a violation, and they must be prosecuted.”

So what if Anne Frank was born and died before there was an Israel, or that her diary has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with a young girl struggling to remain human in the midst of genocide? Hezbollah knows better, and you know the punishment for saying otherwise. Teachers, burn those books! Who knows what might happen if compassion were to seduce tender young minds?

In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. – Anne Frank
