It is now being widely reported across Israel that the missionary GodTV's Shelanu channel airing over HOT cable has been shut down by the Ministry of Communications for not being in compliance with the claims on their license application.  B"H!!!  And thanks to all who helped.  


  1. Wonderful News!!!

    What a pleasant piece of news to start a brand new week. B'H.. yes... many times.

    Wish you a lovely week Devash.


  2. Secular israel still has a healthy Jewish immune system baruch haShem.

  3. Thank you, Estelle. You, too!

  4. Clearly, this is not the last word on the subject. Hopefully, though, they will remain off the air while the legal battle continues. Up until now, they were allowed to continue broadcasting while the termination petition was under review.

    ...Biton said that when he had granted the license he had not intended to approve a channel that seeks Jews as its target audience and that if he had known the nature of Shelanu TV he would have directed the approval process down a different path including a hearing in front of the full council.

    “A channel which seeks to address the Jewish people which dwells in Israel [and present it with] the gospels of Jesus will never be broadcast on Hot and this was known to the senior officials of the channel, as was stated in the hearing,” wrote Biton.

    In his decision, Biton acknowledged however that proselytising in Israel not illegal, and that if a request was presented to authorize a proselytising channel further examination of the issue would be required given that proselytising to minors is illegal and since children often have free access to TV.

    Hot has seven days to stop the Shelanu TV broadcasts, but is able to appeal the decision if it so wishes.

    If it does, Biton said that if a new license request is made which accurately depicts the nature of the channel and its broadcasting, the issues of “freedom of expression against the injury to religious sensitivities would be examined.”

    He added that religious channels of different faiths designed for their own religious communities have been broadcasting in Israel for many years “in accordance with the religious policies of the Council.”

    Shelanu TV said in response to the decision that in the existing license it is written “unambiguously” that "the channel will broadcast Christian content in Hebrew to the general Israeli public.

    The organization said that “it is therefore unclear at all what was not correct, apart from political considerations.”

    Shelanu TV said it would submit a new license request for broadcasting in Israel.

    “We are saddened by the unprofessional decision of the chairman of the Council for Cable and Satellite Broadcasting,” the organization said, alleging that it was made because Biton is close to former Communications Minister Dudi Amsallem who condemned the license granted to Shelanu TV before he left the ministry.

    “The directors of the channel hope that the Council will approve the new request to broadcast the channel, and thereby avoid a severe diplomatic incident with hundreds of millions of Evangelical Christians who love and support Israel around the world,” said Ron Cantor, a “Messianic Jew” in Israel and spokesman for Shelanu TV.

  5. We're definitely just being thrown a bone here, fooling us (hopefully not) into thinking that we have a victory.

    Clearly Xians are analyzing the situation, and deciding on how to change stratgies.

  6. B"H!!!!!
