Israel’s regulator has ordered an evangelical Christian broadcaster’s new channel off the air, saying it applied to serve a Christian audience but instead has sought to persuade Jews with the gospel of Jesus.
In a statement, the Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Council said its chairman, Asher Biton, told the Israeli cable provider Hot on Thursday that evangelical broadcaster God TV’s channel Shelanu — which means “ours” in Hebrew — must come off the air in seven days.
The article goes on to state the following:
“An examination of the council’s supervision wing shows that the channel does not appeal to the Christian population in Israel, but rather to the Jews,” the council said in a written statement. “Therefore, the characterization of the channel submitted for approval does not reflect its broadcasts.”
Ron Cantor, the spokesman for Shelanu, the Israel regional director for God TV, disputed the claim that an agreement had been broken.
“Our license, granted by the state of Israel, says in Hebrew that our target audience is the audience of Israeli viewers,” Cantor said in a statement. “There is no stipulation whatsoever that we must target Christians.”
