While many are wringing their hands regarding the rise of an increased number of extreme Muslims here in the United States, it was our own government that was promoting the propaganda machine Al Jazerra right into our homes. Let us not let Hillary Clinton off the hook in promoting the cable network, and of course Al Gore who sold his network to them. Yes, our prisons are supposed to be breeding grounds for radicalizing individuals in this faith. But no one is holding our government accountable. After the new update, I will take a walk down memory lane with links to a couple of old posts including a clip of Hillary.
An Al Jazeera TV host, writing in the Qatari media, has called the Western coalition campaign against Islamic State a “new crusade,” reminiscent of the one that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003.
The Al-Watan newspaper ran an op-ed on Sunday by Al Jazeera host Ahmed Mansour, who said that the Western media coverage on late has focused on “their industry” of making enemies, namely the Islamic State.
This is being done just as it was in the past regarding al-Qaida, the Taliban, Saddam Hussein, and Osama bin Laden, he said.
Mansour accused the “extreme Right” in Britain of “corresponding” to the Islamic State in terms of extremism.
And just as US president George W. Bush referred to the war on terror as a “crusade,” it is clear now that “the story is not the Islamic State, but the real story is what is happening is a new crusade dressed in new clothing,” he wrote.
This article follows the Qatari position that supports Islamist movements throughout the region, including those in Syria seeking to topple President Bashar Assad.
Recall this? Egypt kicks out Al-Jazeera, U.S. embraces news source July 12, 2013
Every good organizer knows that control of the media is paramount. The good news is that Egypt has had enough of Al-Jazeera.
In the U.S., Soledad O’Brien and other journalists have flocked to Al Jazeera, but in the Middle East, the network for the past week has been facing a major challenge to its credibility including mass staff resignations, a raid of one of its offices, its reporters kicked out of a news conference by fellow journalists, and the arrest of some of its staffers by Egyptian security forces.
The dramatic developments are the result of widespread perceptions in Egypt and in the Arab world that Al Jazeera has shown a pro-Muslim Brotherhood slant in its reporting.
Recall Obama urges Cable Companies to Carry Al-Jazeera? even though there is no question that they support the Muslim Brotherhood? That they are anti-American? Anti-Israel?
AJE’s battle with the cable carriers is major news in the Middle East. Not carrying the network sends a message to the Arab world about America’s unwillingness to accept information, unfiltered, from the very region we spend so much time talking about.
Al-Awalaki Praises Al-Jazeera, Wikileaks and Media Jihad not enough yet?
In his latest message to the Muslim world, Al-Awlaki defends the journalists of one such “trustworthy” Muslim source, Al-Jazeera, and praises the Western media source WikiLeaks.
How about our gal Hillary… she really is getting old.
“Like it or hate it, it is really effective,” Clinton said. “In fact, viewership of Al-Jazeera is going up in the United States because it is real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news that is not providing information to us, let alone foreigners.”
Via American Thinker:
Al-Jazeera is filled with anti-American propaganda. It is also awash in anti-Semitism. The material broadcast stokes terror and violence.
