This comes just seven short years after Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called the broadcaster’s reporting "vicious, inaccurate and inexcusable" and President George W. Bush joked about bombing it, and senior Bush officials caricatured the channel as an anti-Semitic, anti-American outlet for Islamo-porn. And here we are ten years after the largest and bloodiest Islamic attack on America, and Al Jazeera is launching in New York City on Time Warner Cable. This is a major step in the network’s goal of expanding jihad propaganda further into the U.S. cable market and gives it a chance to reach two million households in a world capital of culture and commerce. The network will also launch on VerizonFiOS in the coming days.
How much did those traitors sell us out for?
The overtly covert — or is that covertly overt? — propaganda war against the West is being waged on all fronts, but no organization has done as much to spread hate, lies and incitement to violence as Al-Jazeera. Al-Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in the world. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al-Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was arrested on terror charges. Al-Jazeera also has for years been the recipient of numerous Al-Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, Zawahiri, and American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet they never seem to be able to trace where these videos are coming from. They have repeatedly been set up at the point of attack right before a bomb went off, so that they could take the picture of the slaughtered, dismembered bodies.
How did they know?
Islam is the only religion with a propaganda arm, and its most powerful outlet for dissemination of disinformation, Islamic Jew-hatred, scrubbing of ethnic cleansing, gender apartheid, jihadi wars, land appropriations and cultural annihilations is Al-Jazeera. Reasoned and rational free men have long known the pernicious influence of this jihadist news organization. But the recent legitimization and outrageous "lauding" of their coverage by mainstream news outlets is not only dangerous; it’s civilizational suicide.
Al Jazeera is a security threat to America. Demand Investigative Hearings
Back in April, I was the keynote speaker at a press conference held by Cliff Kincaid, the President of America's Survival, Inc., at the National Press Club to expose the covert expansion of Al Jazeera into the United States. Here is the video of my remarks at that press conference.
We were fighting Al Jazeera's being broadcast on MHz Networks, a division of Commonwealth Public Broadcasting, which receives over three million in taxpayer dollars. Would we have subsidized Tokyo Rose or the Mufti Al Husseini's radio broadcasts during World War II? Well, that's exactly what we are doing now.
Al Jazeera is totally owned and paid for by the Emir of Qatar, whose net worth is upwards of two billion dollars, and yet we are subsidizing his Muslim Brotherhood propaganda. How our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton can describe Al Jazeera as giving real news is beyond the pale. It was not surprising that our pro-jihad President would welcome terror TV into American homes.
Al Jazeera's target is clear — to enable and assist jihadi groups to overthrow the US-allied regimes. Al Jazeera's role in Egypt reminds Jerry Kenney of the arsonist who wants credit for the ferocity of the fire and destruction.
No organization has done as much damage in spreading hate, lies and incitement to violence as has Al Jazeera.
They are no different from al-Manar, the "broadcast" station for Hizballah. And al-Manar is designated a terrorist organization by the State Department.
It’s clear to any objective observer that al-Jazeera is sympathetic to the global jihad, and a strong case can be made that it is complicit in those jihadist activities. In November 2010, ninety-one American, Israeli and Canadian victims of Hizballah rocket attacks filed an unprecedented $1.2 billion lawsuit against Al-Jazeera in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, charging that al-Jazeera "intentionally provided real-time coverage of the locations of missile strikes inside Israel in violation of Israeli security regulations, thereby enabling Hezbollah to aim its missiles more accurately."
The war in the information battle-space is as critical as what goes on in the battlefields of Afghanistan, Iraq and now Libya. The violent jihadi attacks in America, Europe, India, Israel, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Thailand, Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, et al, constitute but one front in the global jihad. The propaganda is just as critical, if not more so, as we witness whole regions succumbing to the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth.
Stop the expansion of the enemy propaganda in the United States.
Al-Jazeera is also closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, an international Islamic supremacist organization dedicated in its own words, according to a captured internal document, to "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within." Ikhwanweb.com, the website of the Brotherhood, has praised al-Jazeera as "the Greatest Arab Media Organization."
According to Zvi Mazel, a former Israeli ambassador to Egypt, al-Jazeera is "under a very heavy influence of the Muslim Brothers. The director general of al-Jazeera, Wadah Khanfar is a Muslim Brother."
Arab scholar Mamoun Fandy calls Al-Jazeera "the Muslim Brotherhood channel." He explained that "Al-Jazeera … is already propagandizing for the organization. … If you watch a debate program presented on Al-Jazeera … you will be amazed at the supreme effort … to defend the Muslim Brotherhood."
Pierre Akel, founder and editor of the noted Arabic web site Metransparent.com, agreed, saying: "When it comes to satellite television in the region, Al-Jazeera is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood."
Tunisian democracy activist Khaled Shawkat wrote: "Al-Jazeera has been hijacked by the Muslim Brotherhood organization."
The Brotherhood’s leading spiritual authority, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, is a foremost presence on al-Jazeera. Qaradawi has justified and praised suicide attacks against Israeli civilians, the death penalty for apostates from Islam, and other Islamic supremacist positions. The liberal Muslim Abu Khawla wrote that "in the case of Al-Jazeera, preacher Al-Qaradawi (a leading figure of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood) is one of its most influential founding members. And fundamentalists are in charge of its news programs and talk shows."
Journalist Youssef Ibrahim added: "One of the most eminent leaders of the Ikhwan movement, who appears weekly on Al-Jazeera's ‘Sharia and Life' program, is Sheik Yusuf Al-Qaradawi. He has specifically ruled that Americans in Iraq and Israelis everywhere should be targeted by suicide bombers, who will be considered martyrs and heroes." Mr. Ibrahim also noted that Sheik Qaradawi "ranks among the top 10 leaders of the Ikhwan's international ruling councils." The Ikhwan is the Muslim Brotherhood.
The supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mahdi Akef, appeared on Al-Jazeera on July 30, 2006, and said: "This American Satan claims to be a messenger of divine guidance. … I salute all the honorable Americans who stand up to this Satan, who wants to set the entire world on fire, not just the Arab and Islamic nation. I go back to the issue of jihad. Jihad is an individual duty incumbent upon every Muslim."
In line with all this was the recent Wikileaks revelation that Mossad Director Meir Dagan predicted that al-Jazeera would be the next cause of war in the Middle East.
Now Al Jazeera is in talks with Comcast and Time Warner to bring Al Jazeera’s Children’s Channel to the U.S. as early as 2012. Programming on that channel includes Saladin, a cartoon that tells the story of the Crusades from the vantage point of a Muslim warrior, and a documentary about children living in the Gaza Strip that bewails trumped-up Israeli "atrocities."
Do not accept the Goebbels network of the Fourth Reich. Join me in fighting this scourge.
It is sedition to give these killers air time.

NEW YORK — Six months after New York City news junkies flocked to Al Jazeera English’s website for up-to-the-second coverage of the Egyptian uprising, they’ll now have a chance to watch the 24-hour news network on its original platform: television.
At midnight, Al Jazeera English launched in New York City on Time Warner Cable, a major step in the network’s goal of expanding further into the U.S. cable market and a chance to reach two million households in a world capital of culture and commerce. The network will also launch on VerizonFiOS in the coming days.
Al Anstey, managing director of Al Jazeera English, told The Huffington Post that AJE's website receives more online traffic from New York City than from any other city around the globe –- evidence of high demand in the Big Apple. Now that the network will be reaching cable viewers, too, Anstey hopes to make further inroads into the media capital.
"New York is a very important city," Anstey said. "It’s looking at all directions on the globe and all directions are looking back at New York City. So it’s a truly global city. It’s got a very outward looking, diverse, intelligent audience — obviously an influential audience in some quarters as well. So it’s a key part of our strategy."
