Egyptian TV says ‘Jewish lobbies’ behind ‘The Simpsons’

An Egyptian television host of the Al Tahrir TV network said the writers of U.S. show "The Simpsons" are actually colluding as "Jewish lobbies" and "think tanks" at the behest of Rupert Murdoch, “the most influential and dangerous man in the world.”

The host's remarks were followed by an interview with Imad Gad, the network's TV director, who gives an explanation about the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). 

"They want to tell the Western countries and the Western cultures that the Arabs hate them and they are imprisoned by conspiracy theories," he said.

There seems to be a conspiracy theory here, but maybe, just maybe, it's not at MEMRI. You be the judge.
