A Spanish public broadcaster accused Jews of promoting Satanism.
The assertion was the focus of a radio program titled "From the Inferno - The Jewish People: Propagator of the Satan Cult" aired last month by the state-owned RTVE broadcaster as part of its weekend "A la Carta" program.
The program begins with ominous music, followed by a gravel-voiced announcer who quotes from Jacob Frank, an 18th century Jew from Poland who had been excommunicated by his community for his heretical Kabbalistic theology. "The Jews first propagated the cult of Lucifer in several secret satanic societies," the monologue continued.
"Through black magic, the Israelites called on the powers of darkness with demonic rationale," the announcer continues.
The synopsis on RTVE's website for the 30-minute program states: "The Jewish founders of the occult and masonry society introduced the cult of Lucifer" to some organizations.
On Thursday, "A La Carta" aired another broadcast about Satanism by Vatican societies.
