NBC has been facing condemnation for days following two separate instances of antisemitism on its network. The two incidents occurred in the same week but on different shows that the network aired.

First, it was this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” where “Weekend Update” host Michael Che asserted Israel had only vaccinated its “Jewish half” of the population. American Jewish Committee’s Avi Mayer said it “promoted antisemitic myths” and called on NBC to apologize. He wasn’t the only one.

The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis Israel Director Tamar Sternthal called on “NBC and SNL to apologize for the blatant antisemitic smear, and to make clear that Israel is providing equal access to the coronavirus vaccine for its entire population, Jews and non-Jews alike,” in a letter send on Monday.

“We also continue to call on MSNBC to forthrightly correct the Israel is ‘burning down Palestinian villages’ falsehoods,” she added, referring to an incident earlier this month.

However, NBC has yet to apologize or take any action. It is all too common, say activists and religious leaders concerned about the growing tide of anti-Semitism in America.

Second and finally, it was an episode in the series Nurses, where an orthodox Jewish patient wouldn’t accept a bone graft he needed because it was coming from “a dead goyim leg.”

Rabbi Yaakov Menken wrote that the episode was “classic Antisemitic propaganda of the most vile kind.”

“Congratulations NBC, you’re now officially competing with the Nazis themselves to see who can do this better,” he said in a tweet.

NBCUniversal couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. This reporter spoke to an operator at NBCUniversal who couldn’t provide any contact information and said SNL’s team couldn’t be reached outside of their daily operating hours.

Deadline confirmed Wednesday that the network removed the Nurses episode from its digital platforms, citing a source who said they had been contacted by a number of Jewish organizations “and were keen to have conversations with them about the topic.”

Watchdog StopAntisemitism.org called the episode “viciously antisemitic” and said it was “filled with lies.”

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world

China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.

Key findings of the report are below.

“Persuaded to return”

According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.

Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.

The Nine Forbidden Countries

China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.

Conclusion

According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
