The Council was received by the Representative council of the Jewish institutions of France (CRIF) in connection with the diffusion of the Khaïbar series by three chains called Dubai TV, Algeria 3 and Dream 3. Only the two first channels fall within the competence of France for their diffusion in Europe, mainly assured by a satellite Eutelsat.

The Council noted that this fiction developed a vision manichéenne and stereotyped reports and conflicts opposing of pagan and the Jews to the Muslims. The oddment intends to transpose this historical fiction in the news, thus conferring a load symbolic system likely to him to poke the tensions between the communities.

Considering that the diffusion of this series is likely to ignore the provisions from the articles 1st and 15 of the law of September 30th, 1986 which impose on the programs put at the disposal of public not to contravene the public order, nor to contain incentive with hatred or the violence for reasons of race, sex, manners, on religion or nationality, the Council decided, pursuant to III of article 33-1 of the law of September 30th, 1986, to require of Eutelsat to inform Dubai TV and Algeria 3 of the obligations which fall to them, and in particular of the provisions from the articles 1st and 15 of the law of September 30th, 1986 which the necessary respect must be assured.
