Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Israel orders evangelical Christian media network God TV to take channel off air”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

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.

"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."

The spokesman for Shelanu, Ron Cantor, Israel regional director for God TV, said it was false that the broadcaster had broken its agreement.

"Our license, granted by the state of Israel, says in Hebrew that our target audience is the audience of Israeli viewers," Cantor said in an emailed statement. "There is no stipulation whatsoever that we must target Christians."
