Clearly Racist And Bigoted Skits On Clear Channel

by iZ Wednesday, Mar. 17, 2004 at 1:42 PM

In the March 10 Bill Handel show on KFI AM 640, a pretend "Muslim" allegedly reading from the new Iraqi constitution refers to "hairy Iraqi women," "lovely Japanese schoolgirls," the "infidel custom of bathing on a regular basis," and "civil unions" between Iraqis and "loving camels and goats."

Clearly Racist And Bigoted Skits On Clear Channel

iZ

FCC COMPLAINT FILED OVER ISLAMOPHOBIC RADIO SKIT
Pretend "Muslim" said Iraqi constitution permits sex with animals

(ANAHEIM, CA, 3/16/04) - CAIR's Southern California office (CAIR-LA) today
announced that it has filed complaints with both the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) and Clear Channel Communications over an Islamophobic skit
on a Los Angeles radio station that claimed Muslims have sex with animals,
avoid bathing and are obsessed with killing Jews.

In the March 10 Bill Handel show on KFI AM 640, a pretend "Muslim"
allegedly reading from the new Iraqi constitution refers to "hairy Iraqi
women," "lovely Japanese schoolgirls," the "infidel custom of bathing on a
regular basis," and "civil unions" between Iraqis and "loving camels and
goats."

Throughout the skit, called "The New Iraq Constitution - Handelized," the
mock-Muslim repeatedly stated "Allah be praised," "death to the Jews" and
"kill all Jews." Listeners also heard recordings of Islamic prayers in
Arabic. CAIR-LA asked the station to apologize for the offensive skit, but
that request was denied.

To listen to the offensive skit, go to:
http://www.kfi640.com/media/iraqcont.mp3 or

ACTION REQUESTED

American Muslim community for such bigoted and racist remarks. CONTACT:

TRANSCRIPT OF THE BILL HANDEL SHOW
March 10, 2004, KFI 640 AM
"The New Iraq Constitution --- Handelized"

Bill: You're aware that Iraqi officials signed an interim Constitution,
what you're probably not aware is what's inside that Constitution. No one's
said anything about it. It happens to be a fascinating document. And with
us is the … ("I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast," in Arabic in
background) exactly. With us is that great Constitutional scholar, the
Iraqi Constitutional scholar, Mohammad Barak Faroud Kafi. (Thank you very
much. Allah be praised). Alright. Now, uh, Mr. Mohammad, would you share
some of those provisions in that Constitution that, uh, very few of us are
aware of.

Mohammad: Yeah, I brought a couple of pages to read to you:

"We the people of Iraq, in order to form a more perfect union promote
injustice and insure domestic anarchy, provide for radical religious
fundamentalist theocracy, promote the subjugation of women, and secure the
blessings of the almighty Allah for ourselves and our posterity. Do ordain
and establish this interim constitution of the New Iraq.

Mohammad: Sounds very familiar doesn't it?

Bill: It does. I'm, I'm surprised. You took a lot of it from the United
States, didn't you Sir?

Mohammad: Yes, and we will take more of your money.

Bill: Yes, thank you.

Mohammad: Article 1 Section 1: All Legislative powers are herein granted
and shall be vested in grand Ayatollah Ali Al-Sistani, who will personally
see to it that personal freedoms and civil rights be set back 1000 years.

Section 2: Death to the Jews, death to the Jews, death to the Jews. (laughter)

Section 3: The House of Representatives shall be composed of [inaudible]
American-hating terrorists who shall conduct a war of attrition for 1000
years or until the infidel is eradicated from the planet entirely,
whichever comes first.

Section 4: Kill all the Jews, death to Israel, kill all Jews. (laughter)

Bill: Thank you.

Mohammad: Section 5…Martyrs

Bill: Oh there's more.

Mohammad: Should I go on?

Bill: Yes. Go ahead.

Mohammad: Section 5: Everybody in the name of Allah should be given 72
virgins upon entrance into heaven. The virgins however, will not be hairy
Iraqi women, but lovely Japanese schoolgirls. (laughter) This we personally
guarantee in the name of Allah.

Section 6: The Hebrew must die. Free Palestine. The Hebrew must die. (laughter)

Section 7: All western teachings shall from this day be banned throughout
Iraq, especially the infidel custom of bathing on a regular basis. (laughter)

Section 8: Death to the Zionists conspiracy. Death to the Zionist
conspiracy. Death to the Zionist conspiracy.

UH, Section 9: All homosexuals marriages are especially prohibited and are
punishable by death, however civil unions between consenting Iraqi, uh,
adults and loving camels and goats will be recognized. (laughter)

Section 10: See sections 2, 4, 6, and 8. (laughter) They pretty much is the
same thing… for the entire Constitution.

Bill: Thank you very much, uh, the great Mohammad, the uh, Constitutional
scholar from Iraq. Thank you so much for being with us.

Mohammad: Allah be praised.

Bill: I appreciate that. Alright. ("I seek refuge in God from Satan the
outcast," in Arabic in background) (laughter)
