The big push to bring terror TV into America's homes is inexcusable and dangerous. Check out their frontpage today -- the Al Qaeda-tied network is running Qaddafi with a Jewish star on his forehead. Atlas has been a vocal opponenent of Al Jizz (scroll here). President Obama and Nancy Pelosi are fans (understandably, as they are essentially anti-American), but John McCain shilling for Al Jizz is reprehensible.
The Arab-funded Al-Jazeera is hosting a two-day inaugural “Al Jazeera U.S. Forum” in Washington, D.C., featuring Bob Woodward of The Washington Post among the celebrity journalists. But of particular interest is Politico’s revelation that Republican Senator John McCain showed up at the opening night of the forum to praise the channel’s coverage of the Middle East.
“Over dinner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. John McCain praised Al Jazeera’s role as a catalyst in the Arab Spring uprisings before a room of journalists…” the publication reported. In fact, the “Arab Spring” has resulted in a government in Egypt that is less friendly to the U.S. and more accommodating to the Iranians and the terrorist group, Hamas. (more here at Aim)
The RINOs are a pox on our Republican house.
Check out today's frontpage over at Al Jizz and the Jew hating cartoon. (hat tip Titus)
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.
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.
McCains (and any political) support is a shocker.
This was a shocker because the day before, on Sunday, The Washington Post had finally gotten around to publishing a semi-critical article on the channel, noting its double-standards and open bias on the matter of revolutions in the Middle East. The Post even acknowledged that WikiLeaks had released a U.S. cable describing the channel as a foreign policy instrument of Qatar, the Middle Eastern dictatorship which financially sponsors it and selects its personnel.
While ignoring evidence of Al-Jazeera’s links to al-Qaeda, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the Post article by Thomas Erdbrink noted that the channel “built its reputation on its critical coverage” of the U.S. military intervention in Iraq—a war strongly supported by Senator John McCain. Al-Jazeera’s first managing director, Mohammed Jassem al-Ali, was exposed as an agent of the Saddam Hussein regime.
McCain’s praise of Al-Jazeera was also curious because the channel, during the 2008 presidential campaign, had savaged the McCain-Palin ticket by running a piece depicting Republican voters as country bumpkins and racists. Casey Kaufmann, the Al-Jazeera reporter who did the story, contributed $500 to the Obama-for-president campaign, a violation of basic standards of journalism ethics.
Last December Al-Jazeera published an article asserting, “McCain’s fervent opposition to [Obama’s] presidential policies, are and always have been, driven by spite and not statesmanship.” The author, a contributor to the Huffington Post, had written a book highly critical of McCain entitled, The Real McCain: Why Conservatives Don’t Trust Him—And Why Independents Shouldn’t.
But on the matter of Libya, Al-Jazeera and McCain see eye-to-eye, and this has apparently made all the difference in the world. McCain granted an interview to Al-Jazeera English, telling anchor Tony Harris, a former CNN employee, that he supports the Obama policy of so-called humanitarian intervention. This policy, conducted without Congressional approval, has been criticized as illegal.
Send McCain this cartoon. Have this tool answer for his complicity.
