DEFENDING THE WEST
Al Jazeera tries to whitewash bloody record
Exclusive: Pamela Geller urges Americans to oppose terrorist propaganda network
It came to light Tuesday that terror network Al Jazeera has hired a high-powered K Street lobbying firm, DLA Piper, to whitewash its tarnished terror-enabling record among Washington lawmakers.
Al Jazeera clearly believes that politicians are utterly corrupt and can be bought off – hence its hiring of this lobbying firm. And DLA Piper is craven and short-sighted to take the job. Could the Nazis have hired a lobbying firm during World War II and persuaded Congress to allow them to have a television station in the United States?!
Those lobbyists have their work cut out for them. 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-Qaida videos featuring Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-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.
Al Jazeera has provided material support for jihad terrorism. A number in their employ are members of al-Qaida. Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Afghanistan, who interviewed Osama bin Laden, was sent to prison for being an agent of al-Qaida. Al Jazeera’s first managing director was exposed as an agent of the Saddam Hussein regime, and the channel promoted the bloody jihad against American forces in Iraq.
In light of all this, a patriotic broadcaster and activist, Jerry Kenney, has filed complaints with the Department of Justice, citing evidence that Al Jazeera is not complying with the Foreign Agent Registration Act and labeling its broadcasts as foreign propaganda, paid for by the pro-jihadist Arab government of Qatar. The Department of Justice refuses to enforce the law against Al Jazeera.
Yet in the face of all this, the enemedia is silent. Last week I spoke at a press conference on Al Jazeera at the National Press Club. It set the stage for a brutal battle. The room was full to capacity with activists and new media. The enemedia would never cover this. They are aligned with the jihad force. They like Al Jazeera. We held a big press conference that was ignored by the media and worse, by Congress – and in response, Al Jazeera decided to grease the corrupt wheels in Congress and grease those dirty palms, knowing that the priority of all too many lawmakers would be a payoff and not fidelity to the oath they have sworn to protect and defend the American Constitution and people.
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. Hitler and Goebbels understood this. The Nazi government had an entire ministry of propaganda – a war division. The Muslim Brotherhood understands this, too. It has its own ministry of propaganda: Al Jazeera. Muhammad said, “War is deceit.” The U.S. once understood the power of ideas. We had a war department that had Hollywood greats like Frank Capra and John Ford making films for freedom. Where are our cheerleaders now?
