HOT cable company chose not to reapply for a license on Shelanu TV’s behalf, effectively ending its time on Israeli cable TV. God TV’s spokesman in Israel, Ron Cantor, said the show will go on, albeit in a different format.
Last night we learned that HOT Cable company has chosen not to reapply for a license for Shelanu TV, which effectively ends Shelanu TV’s era on the HOT cable network.
Shelanu TV has released the license it received to broadcast believing content in Israel and insists: It is not in violation of the agreement.
Shelanu’s license has merely been suspended and the channel, run by Messianic Jews, can reapply for a license. The authorities imposed a difficult bureaucratic hurdle, which might render the channel suspended for a while, but it has not been shut down.
Don writes, "I am deeply concerned about some of the responses regarding the recent God TV dilemma. Did the God TV brother express himself in a way that is insensitive to this whole issue? Perhaps so, but please do not let this drive any of us away from our covenant Jewish brothers and sisters in the Messiah."
Eric writes, "What would motivate Christian leaders to actively fight against Messianic Jews in Israel? My first inclination (from experience) would be to say, “Follow the money,” and to tell you to look for the Thirty Pieces of Silver."
Since few if any of the accusers have bothered finding out what the channel is airing, we need to ask ourselves – why is the very existence of a Messianic Jewish channel in Hebrew such a threat to both Orthodox Jews and some Evangelical Christians?
Watch CBN News coverage of the controversy surrounding the Israeli Messianic cable channel Shelanu TV, including interviews from both sides.
