I gotta say Face The Nation and Meet The Press would benefit from a little of this. Syrian pundit Dr. Akram Makkana and Free Syrian Army political coordinator Luay al-Miqdad discuss the Assad chemical-weapons deal on al-Jadeed TV:

Mr AL-MIQDAD: That criminal Bashar al-Assad would even hand over his wife to remain in power…

Dr MAKKANA: You would hand over your mother and sister, you filthy pimp… You are scum with no honor. You were born of Israeli semen.

EMBARRASSED HOST: Please. Some expressions you can’t use…

“Born of Israeli semen”? As they say in Europe, it’s not anti-Semitic, just anti-Zionist.
