Hizbollah al-Manar television presenter Kawthar al-Mousawi at al-Manar's studio in Beirut December 3, 2004.Lebanese Hizbollah's Al-Manar television said on Friday a French call to ban the station from broadcasting in Europe went against the principle of freedom and that the channel had not broken a promise to report without bias. France's CSA broadcasting authority has called for a ban on Al-Manar broadcasts to Europe, saying the channel, accused by critics of being anti-Semitic, breached an earlier agreement not to show programmes that could incite hatred among religions.
