Kosher Conspiracy Theorist?

Those who read this blog on a regular basis know that I’ve written about Mohamed Omar before. For those of you who read this blog more sporadically might want to catch up on his view on rightwing extremism (in favor) and homosexuals (against).

Among my less frequent readers are apparently the people behind Gomorron Sverige, a morning news show on Swedish public television. Or maybe they just don’t care what Omar thinks about democracy, homosexuals and some other pretty basic stuff — like his opinion that the Jews control the media, and that “the Zionists” exploit ethnic minorities in the Middle East to destabilize Arab countries.

In any case, they thought it was a good idea to invite Omar to debate the recent developments in Iran, even though Omar’s credentials as an expert on the topic — beyond having expressed his admiration for Ayatollah Khomeini — are somewhat vague.

I’m not the only one who finds it strange that Swedish public television gives a platform, and legitimacy, to a person like Omar. My surprise is shared by Dilsa Demirbag-Sten, Jonathan Lehman and Paulina Neuding.
