Egypt Moves Against Al Jazeera as CNN Reporters Embrace It by Pamela Geller, Breitbart
The Egyptian Cabinet
has “assigned competent authorities to assess the legal status of Al
Jazeera,” accusing it of threatening stability and national security. At
the same time, CNN veterans Joie Chen and Soledad O'Brien “will lend star power and journalistic gravitas to U.S. offshoot of Qatar-based broadcaster.”
Was there ever a clearer indication of which side the mainstream
media is on, or how richly it deserves the sobriquet “enemedia” that I
have given it? But it’s true: the New York Daily News
report that “CNN vets Joie Chen and Soledad O’Brien are lending their
big names to the in-depth documentary show ‘America Tonight,’ and former
NBC journalist John Seigenthaler will anchor prime-time’s ‘Nightly
Chen said: “I really saw it as a completely different kind of opportunity.” The Daily News
added that Chen “signed up as anchor for what has been billed as the
station’s flagship program after network brass pitched her a show in
which storytelling and good journalism would trump sensationalism and fiery opinions.”
Pimps for jihad.
The Egyptian cabinet, of all people, is now exposing terror TV Al
Jazeera, while CNN reporters rush to sign on. The ministry of propaganda
for the Muslim Brotherhood is being exposed for the jihadist propaganda
machine it is by unexpected sources, while the American mainstream
media unmasks itself.
The fact is that the U.S. government should designate Al Jazeera a
terrorist organization, in the same way that it designated Al Manar
(Hezb'Allah TV) a terror organization. What’s the difference between the
Al Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in the world. Then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called the broadcaster’s reporting “vicious, inaccurate and inexcusable,” and President George W. Bush joked about bombing it.
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-Qaida videos featuring Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and American traitor Adam Gadahn.
Al Jazeera members have also provided material support for jihad
terrorism. Tayseer Allouni, their correspondent in Afghanistan who interviewed Osama bin Laden following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, was sent to prison for being an agent of al-Qaida. Al Jazeera’s first managing director, Mohammed Jassem al-Ali, was exposed as an agent of the Saddam Hussein regime, and the channel promoted the bloody jihad against American forces in Iraq.
Cliff Kincaid at Accuracy in Media has been reporting for over six years the anti-American channel works hand-in-glove with the Muslim Brotherhood
and its associated terrorist groups, including al-Qaida and Hamas.
Nothing has changed. In fact, Al Jazeera has become more open about its
work as a foreign policy instrument of Qatar, including the promotion of al-Qaida-linked terrorist groups in Syria.
As we watch Al Jazeera’s large-scale glossy roll-out in the American market, consider this propaganda video
for a jihad terror group. The video is from Latakia in Syria, where
Islamic jihadists seized several Alawite and took dozens of women and
children hostage. The jihadist featured in the video is a well-known
Islamic militant from Germany, and the news crew that he appears to be
coordinating and working with is (of course) Al Jazeera.
What seems to be happening here, in my view, is that Al Jazeera is
coordinating and working with jihad groups, including those designated
as terrorist groups by the State Department, while they commit what
appear to be war crimes.
How much more proof do we need to keep the Muslim Brotherhood
Ministry of Propaganda off American airwaves? At least 22 staffers at
the Al Jazeera network in Egypt have quit in protest
of the pro-jihad network’s coverage. The staffers who have quit assert
that Al Jazeera brass forced them to take a pro-Muslim Brotherhood
stance on the air during the recent anti-Muslim Brotherhood uprising in
This jihadist ministry of propaganda is being challenged in Muslim
countries, but leftist lords like Al Gore are bringing this seditious
poison to American airwaves.

It isn’t too late: urge the House Homeland Security Committee to
convene hearings into the national security threat posed by Al Jazeera
on American soil by calling 202-226-8417.
We are at war. And there are many theaters in any given war, but the
war in the information battle-space is key to conquest and colonization.
The Muslim Brotherhood understands this. It has its own ministry of
propaganda: Al Jazeera. Muhammad said, “War is deceit.”
