A new Iraqi Satellite T.V. station by the name AL FAYHAA " الفيحاء" (which is one of the complimentary names of the city of Basra) has started experimental limited hours of transmission in Arabic (6 hours daily) from the United Arab Emirates. This station seems to be an answer to our prayers with a clear patriotic message, which can be understood by the simple people. This is the first attempt at talking plainly to the people with a direct anti terrorist message reassuring and encouraging the ordinary man and spreading the ideas of hope and democracy.
I call upon all our well-wishers in the West to support this new effort to counterbalance the poisonous propaganda beamed by certain other media.
The UAE telephone No. Of this new station is 00971 6001664; Fax: 00971 67467727. These numbers appear on their screen. I have no details yet of any related web site.
