Axum Massacres Are War Crimes | የአክሱም ጭፍጨፋዎች የጦር ወንጀሎች ናቸው | Al- Jazeera

🔥 አብዮት አህመድ አሊ፤ አነተ አረመኔ ዲቃላ፤ አይይ! የእናቶች እንባ እንዲህ ቀላል መስሎሃል! ወደማይታወቅ ርዝመቱም ወደማይገኝ ወደ ገሃነም ገደል ይጣልህ!

Ethiopians in the northern region of Tigray have told Al Jazeera multiple tales of civilians tortured and killed at the hands of Eritrean soldiers at the end of last year.

Eritrean soldiers deny ever being in Tigray when conflict broke out there in November, but video is circulating showing Eritrean vehicles carrying soldiers in Tigray.

Amnesty International also released a report stating hundreds of civilians were massacred by Eritrean soldiers in the town of Axum in November.

Al Jazeera ADMITS Editing Tommy Robinson Interview To EXCLUDE Criticism of Muhammed, Claims ‘Not Acceptable Broadcasting Standard’

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 8, 2016

My Note: I remember the wicked former BBC presenter Peter Dobbie outing as “a proud atheist” mocking Christianity on BBC World. I’ve contempt and abhorrence for these British journalists who willfully sold their soul to the Arab devil. It’s only the devil who likes using deceptive tricks and tactics. How small and foolish they all look! The redundant anti-Christian/anti-Ethiopia BBC-franchise, Al Jazeera is to Jihadism what Goebbels was to Nazism. These propaganda outlets could always find willing whores to do their bidding. Atheism = Islam = Atheism.

Arabic news channel Al Jazeera has admitted to selectively editing an interview with Tommy Robinson, one of the organisers behind PEGIDA UK, to remove critical references to Muhammed, the prophet of Islam, as well as to Israel and the death penalty in Qatar.

The host of the ‘Inside Story’ programme, former BBC presenter Peter Dobbie, initially attempted to trick Mr. Robinson, stating: “I just want to put one fulsome point to you if I may. We are in Doha… in the heart of Islam… let me just read something to you from ‘the holy book’ and I want you to react to that. You can’t see me but I’ve got a copy of the Quran in front of me.

There are part of a holy book about people being persecuted and killed,” Dobbie said, before going on to quote the Old Testament from a piece of paper to the left of him. Dobbie then asked Mr. Robinson: “When you hear those quotes, what do you think that speaks to?”

But the ruse failed, leaving Dobbie audibly embarrassed. Mr. Robinson replied instantly: “I’d ask you why you’re reading the Old Testament to me. I’m not stupid. You’re sitting quoting verses from the Old Testament thinking I’m a moron that would think that’s from the Quran. I know the Old Testament and I know the Quran.”

Mr. Robinson’s panel debate was unavailable to view on the Al Jazeera website, and it was not shown again on television as previously scheduled.

But perhaps the most revealing part of the interview was the 50 seconds that were cut from the interview, during which Mr. Robinson reeled off a series of statements about the life of Muhammed, about the treatment of Israelis by the Qatari government, and about the policy of apostasy or freedom from Islam in Qatar.

Mr. Robinson asked the presenter if he was “free to criticise the prophet Muhammad”, to which the answer was “Yes” before the clip cut to 50 seconds later. But Mr. Robinson was recording the interview himself, from his desk, which reveals the cut made by Al Jazeera producers.

During the lost 50 seconds, as originally noted by the IsraellyCool blog, Mr Robinson says: “So you know of the life of Muhammed, yes? You know that he murdered 600 people. You know that he raped…[inaudible interruption] people in the Bible are different to the messenger of god, who is the most moral compass for every Muslim in the world. And when he is the moral compass for every Muslim in the world and he married a six year old child called Aisha and he raped her when she was nine, I have a problem with that. And when people wish to live as Muhammed did in my country [inaudible interruption].

The country you’re sitting in now… people from Israel are not even allowed to enter. If we want to talk about fascism? The country you’re in now… people with Israeli passports… [inaudible interruption]”.

This is the moment at which the main Al Jazeera video resumes, when Mr. Robinson asked, “Can someone in Qatar leave Islam?” to which Dobbie responds: “You don’t have to be Islamic to be in Qatar”.

On the back foot, now defending Qatari government policies based on Shariah law, Dobbie states: “We have to move the debate on. I do have to move the debate on. You and I will have to have a conversation down the pub next time I’m in London”.

An Al Jazeera spokesman told Breitbart London: “Inside Story is a pre-recorded programme, and on many occasions our editorial staff make decisions on what to include or omit based on what is editorially relevant and acceptable to broadcasting standards to the particular debate being aired in the episode in question.”

Apostasy from Islam is in fact a crime in Qatar, punishable by death.

Attempting to convert Muslims to another religion is also a crime in the country, and the penalty for committing blasphemy in Qatar is seven years in jail, and there is a 1-year prison sentence for defamation of Islam by producing or promoting defamatory imagery.

Religious criticism on websites is censored and the censorship office of the Qatar General Broadcasting and Television Corporation monitors all imported foreign broadcasting for religious content show in the country.

Qatar: Bad Time For Evil Babylon

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 17, 2015

ILO finds Qatar guilty

qatar-airways-emirates-airlineGeneva-based United Nations agency the ILO (International Labor Organization) today found Qatar guilty of allowing its state-owned airline, Qatar Airways, to violate international and national agreements and institutionalize discrimination. The case was successfully brought against Qatar by the ITF (International Transport Workers’ Federation) and the ITUC (International Trade Union Confederation) (see http://goo.gl/Ka5inH.)

Qatar Airways (QR) is guilty of systemic workplace sex discrimination, including in its past and current work contracts, which allow it to automatically terminate the employment of women cabin crew who become pregnant, as well as in its prohibition on women being dropped off/picked up at/from company premises by a man other than their father, brother or husband.

The Qatari government has breached its international obligations by turning a blind eye to these offences. By allowing QR to behave in this way Qatar has violated ILO Convention 111 on Discrimination (Employment and Occupation), which Qatar signed in 1976.

The ILO Tripartite Committee also noted that the contractual bar on employees marrying in the first five years of service – after which they could only marry with company permission – has now been removed from the airline’s contracts, and ‘expresses the firm hope that the Government takes the necessary measures without delay to ensure that all cabin crew members are transferred under the new employment contract so as to be able to get married and change their marital status without the company’s permission’.

It also goes on to state that: ‘the Committee considers that particular attention should be given by the Government so as to encourage the company to provide its employees, including foreign employees, with appropriate complaint mechanisms to ensure that they can obtain redress without being exposed to stigmatisation or reprisals, and without the fear of being deported from the country, in cases of harassment or any other discriminatory behaviours based on the grounds set out in the Convention.’

It also noted, ‘the Government’s reply that various dispute settlement mechanisms are in place to handle complaints of migrant workers … the Government did not provide information on how these procedures can be or have been used by cabin crew, in particular women. The Committee observes that access to such procedures and remedies by cabin crew members, who are migrant workers, may be difficult because of the fear of victimization or reprisals, including dismissal and deportation from the country … given the large number of women in cabin crew staff, the appointment of trained women labour inspectors may be a positive measure’.

Aljaz2For two years the ITF has exposed discrimination and repressive practices at QR, including arbitrary dismissal, surveillance and curfews (see http://goo.gl/MzKq0Y) . Meanwhile the ITUC has challenged Qatar over the appalling treatment of migrant workers there.

ITF president Paddy Crumlin commented: “This decision is a game changer. A year ago we put Qatar and Qatar Airways in the dock and today it has been proved that we were right to do so. Everything has to change now. QR can no longer deny and evade. The changes made to the rules for staff failed to fool the ILO. Now the airline must make them for real. It’s time to make QR free from fear.

Ever since we made those rules public we’ve made clear that they had to go. By revealing them we unleashed a torrent of stories of what it is like to work there. We congratulate all those, including those who bravely and secretly spoke to us from inside the airline, those in trade unions, in the wider aviation industry and in the media, who helped us decry these abuses.”

Sharan Burrow, ITUC general secretary, commented: “The attempts to tinker with the rules on pregnancy and marriage made once we brought this case show that Qatar Airways has been shamed into action – and more must come. We, along with everyone who works for the airline, will not rest until it addresses what many of those workers call the ‘climate of fear’ at QR.”

She continued: “The gaze of world opinion is locked on the behaviour of the Qatari government – over Qatar Airways, over its abhorrent treatment of migrant workers, and over the World Cup. In Geneva today Qatar has been proved wanting. We have shown that money doesn’t buy silence. The nation is on trial. It cannot evade its responsibilities. It has to begin to do the right thing.”

How Qatar Used and Abused Its Al Jazeera Journalists

“Al Jazeera’s managers crossed an ethical red line. By attempting to manipulate Egypt’s domestic politics, they were endangering their employees.”

JourActivismThis week, I am back in court in an effort to prove my innocence at a retrial on charges that I was a member of the banned Muslim Brotherhood, designated a terrorist organization in Egypt since December 2013, and that I sought to harm the country’s reputation and security. I already spent 412 days in detention before my conviction in the first trial was overturned on appeal earlier this year.

The terrorism charges against me and my colleague Baher Mohamed are unfounded and have been widely discredited. The other charges relate to our employment by the Al Jazeera media network, which is owned by the state of Qatar.

Following the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood-backed president, Mohamed Morsi, in 2013, Egypt moved to ban Al Jazeera’s Arabic service in the country, known as Mubasher Misr, because it was perceived as a Qatari-sponsored propaganda mouthpiece for the Brotherhood. I was the bureau chief of the Al Jazeera English service, a separate operation that adhered to higher journalistic standards, which, we assumed, would inoculate us against accusations of bias. We were mistaken.

Now, Baher and I find ourselves once again in the soundproof defendants’ cage, fighting to avoid long prison terms. Our friend and fellow Jazeera journalist, Peter Greste, will not be with us. Thanks to his government’s work to win his release, Peter is home in Australia.

At the retrial, we will argue that we continued to work despite the broadcast ban because we believed the English service was exempt and Al Jazeera failed to obtain legal clarification from the Egyptian authorities. If, as a result, there were violations of licensing laws, which in any case would be merely misdemeanors, it is the network’s executives from Qatar who should pay, not us. A final ruling from the Egyptian court could come later this month.

My 18-month ordeal may be close to an end, yet I find myself increasingly angry at how my life and the lives of my family and loved ones have been turned upside down. My anger, however, is not directed primarily at the prosecutor, the judiciary or the government of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. It is aimed at my employer, Al Jazeera.

The network knowingly antagonized the Egyptian authorities by defying a court-ordered ban on its Arabic-language service. Behind that, I believe, was the desire of the Qatari royal family to meddle in Egypt’s internal affairs. While Al Jazeera’s Doha executives used the Cairo bureau of Al Jazeera English to give their scheme a veneer of international respectability, they made us unwitting pawns in Qatar’s geopolitical game.

Al Jazeera America accused of bias against non-Arabs and women

AlEvilThe former head of Al Jazeera America’s documentary unit has sued the news network, claiming it is biased against non-Arabs and women in stories that it produces and in how it treats employees.

Shannon High-Bassalik, fired in February after working through half of a three-year contract, said the network’s recently ousted chief executive, Ehab Al Shihabi, left meetings when women were speaking and admitted that he tried to favor an Arab point of view on the air to please Ajam’s Qatar-based ownership.

The troubled news network, an offshoot of the international Al Jazeera network, has reached few viewers in the United States. Through lawsuits and resignations over the past two months, a picture has emerged of a place that has consistently fallen short in its efforts to give Americans a hard-news, unbiased alternative to CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC.

As ratings failed to live up to the expectations of management, Al Jazeera openly decided to abandon all pretense of neutrality in favor of putting the Arabic viewpoint front and center, openly demanding that programs be aired that criticized countries such as America, Israel and Egypt,” High-Bassalik’s lawsuit stated.

She said she was told that if abandonment of journalistic integrity led people to regard them as terrorists, “that was an acceptable risk for the company to take”.

High-Bassalik said that Al Shihabi told her that the company should be regarded as Al Jazeera in America, rather than Al Jazeera America.

Al Shihabi was ousted in early May, shortly after another employee sued, alleging he was fired when he complained about a colleague’s antisemitic and sexist behavior. The company’s senior vice-president of newsgathering, head of human resources and communications chief – all non-Arab women – each resigned over a two-week period.

The former documentary chief, who has also worked for CNN, NBC and MSNBC, said she was told that many Arabs believe the September 11 terrorist attacks were staged by the CIA to wage war on Arabs, and that this was a point of view the company should be guided by.

High-Bassalik said that she was told to hire an Arabic woman as a producer even though the person was unqualified and there were several non-Arabs ready for promotion. She claimed that performance ratings for Arabs were systematically upgraded, while non-Arabs saw their ratings go down.

She accused the head of the company’s investigative unit of tweeting that “Israelis are like Hitler”. During coverage of the 2014 conflict in Gaza, she said she was told the mission was to cast Israel as the villain and emphasize the Arab and Muslim point of view.

Our Struggle is Not Against Flesh and Blood

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 11, 2015

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” [Ephesians 6:12]

  • In the year 700, Ethiopia asked the then Christian powers of southern Europe (Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium)) to help her fight against Arab Muslim invaders. But, they hesitated. By the time Ethiopians start attacking Arab shipping in the Red Sea. Arabs in turn were able to occupy Ethiopian seaports, conquer Christian North Africa and wipe out indigineous Coptic Christians.
  • In the year 711, Arabs and Moors invaded Christian Spain.
  • The Paris tragedy took place on the 7th of January, 2015 – On Ethiopian CHRISTMAS Day. The Charlie Hebdo shooters used AK-47 assault rifles: 4+7 = 11
  • The Islamic terrorist attack in New York occurred on September 11, 2011 – Ethiopian NEW YEAR‘s Day
  • On September 11, 1683Ethiopian New Year – the tide of the second wave of the Great Islamic Jihad turned and began to ebb in Vienna, Austria

Today is January 11, 2015

The barbaric act in Paris was not the first of its kind, this Christmas season. We’ve been hearing about Islamic murders and attacks against non-Muslims every other day, for decades, the whole year, December in particular. December and January are Holy months for Christians, yet this Christmas, we were forced to hear more about terror, suicide murders, Islam and Mohamed than about the Lord Jesus Christ. Four days before Ethiopians were about to celebrate Christmas, Sufi Muslims of Ethiopia celebrated the birthday of their prophet, called Mawlid. Mawild isn’t even celebrated in the birthplace of Mohamed, Saudi Arabia.

It today’s processions in Paris we see people holding placards reading ‘Je Suis Charlie’ (I am Charlie) showing their support for the victims of the terrorist attack at French newspaper Charlie Hebdo. Pay attention to the morphology of the ‘two’ french words, Je Suis Charlie. JESUIS is almost JESUS. The acronym for JeSuis Charlie is JC = JESUS CHRIST. If we take the first two letters from the first name of the runaway terrorist woman, Hayat Boumeddiene (is she pregnant?), and make a composition with the last name of the Jewish supermarket, “Hyper Casher– where her partner murdered 4 Jewish shoppers – we have (phonetically) the name HAGAR = mother of Ishmael, the wild donkey of a man.

We are at war, it is a spiritual war, and the gullible liberal secularists are losing it. The wicked media manipulates lots of things, as it tries to forget everything about the victims while portraying the barbaric terrorists and their theatrical supporters as victims. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour: Charlie Hebdo Murderers Were “Activists” During today’s Paris march against terror most TV camera lenses and microphones were given to the Muslim participants who come out, not out of conviction but out of fear and possible backclash. Many even seem to have joined the march to celebrate their “victory”. They brought with them flags and banners that contain the crescent moon and star, their Arabic, their Allah – a perfect setting to herald Islamic triumphalism. That’s what BBC & Co showed us today.

No surprise, when Islamic propagandists like the makers of Al-Jazeera prefer to use the hashtag, story below, #JeSuisAhmed to #JeSuisCharlie or #JeSuisJuif, as they don’t like to show solidarity with the beleaguered Jews of France. They seem to be allergic to Christ and a Jew.

Today in Paris, there were 5000 policemen out there in the streets to protect 1.5 million, marchers, whereas, last Thursday, there were 88.000 policemen hunting for 2 terrorists.

In the above video we hear the response of Egyptian cleric Mostafa Al-Adwy to the Charlie Hebdo terror attack in Paris. He said: “Even though the whole world is crying about what happened to them, we are happy, by Allah

You ain’t seen nothing yet!

Do Western Media Experts Regret Mentoring and Babysitting Al-Jazeera & Co?

I AM NOT CHARLIE’: Leaked Newsroom E-mails Reveal Al Jazeera Fury over Global Support for Charlie Hebdo

SorryAs journalists worldwide reacted with universal revulsion at the massacre of some of their own by Islamic jihadists in Paris, Al Jazeera English editor and executive producer Salah-Aldeen Khadr sent out a staff-wide e-mail.

Please accept this note in the spirit it is intended — to make our coverage the best it can be,” the London-based Khadr wrote Thursday, in the first of a series of internal e-mails leaked to National Review Online. “We are Al Jazeera!”

His denunciation of Charlie Hebdo’s publication of cartoons mocking the prophet Mohamed didn’t sit well with some Al Jazeera English employees.

Hours later, U.S.-based correspondent Tom Ackerman sent an email quoting a paragraph from a January 7 blog post by Ross Douthat. The New York Times’ Douthat (film critic for National Review) argued that cartoons like the ones that drove the radical Islamists to murder must be published “because the murderers cannot be allowed for a single moment to think that their strategy can succeed.”

That precipitated an angry backlash from the network’s Qatar-based correspondents, revealing in the process a deep cultural rift at a network at times accused of overt anti-Western bias.

The heated back-and-forth reflects Al Jazeera English’s precarious balance between its Arab center of gravity and the Western correspondents it employs. After being accused for years of fomenting anti-Western sentiment, most damningly by some of its own anchors, the network made a concerted effort to rebrand, hiring a slew of American and European reporters — especially those who had trouble getting jobs in their own domestic markets.

Sold Out: Talk Radio Host Grills Soledad O’Brien on Al Jazeera Funding

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on August 13, 2014

Hugh Hewitt had one question for Soledad O’Brien on Monday: Is she on the payroll of terror sponsors?

Are you still a special correspondent for Al Jazeera?” Hewitt asked the veteran journalist on his radio program.

I am,” O’Brien responded. “I run a production company, so I work with National Geographic, with Al Jazeera America, with CNN, with HBO, and a number of other companies.”

Businessweek Today has a story on Qatar, which owns Al Jazeera, and the headline calls Qatar a patron of Islamists,” Hewitt continued. “It says that Qatar funds and arms Islamists fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad and bankrolling Hamas in the Gaza Strip. So honest question: How can you take money from them?”

O’Brien responded by defending Al Jazeera’s reporting, saying that she puts quality journalism above all.

I know that the journalism can be good,” Hewitt pressed, “but if the funding for the journalism comes from a regime that is funding ISIS, does it creep you out?”

She wouldn’t give a straight answer.

Well you know, I think again, at the end of the day, the thing that I think about is the journalism,” O’Brien said. “And I think those are very complicated issues. They’re not as straightforward as that.”

Is there anything that would cause you to say if Qatar was shown to be funding ISIS, would you quit Al Jazeera?” Hewitt asked.

Again, she wouldn’t say.

Very rarely do I operate in hypotheticals,” O’Brien responded, but said she would “take it under consideration.”

When Hewitt later asked if Qatar is funding Islamists, she replied that “it’s unclear to me.”

CNN Is Being Sued After Correspondent Arwa Damon Reportedly Bit an EMT While Drunk in Baghdad

That bites! CNN is being sued for more than $1 million by an EMT who claims one of the network’s correspondents bit her while drunk and seeking medical assistance, TMZ reports.

According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, EMT Tracy Lamar claims that Arwa Damon, a Beirut-based Senior International Correspondent, was in the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad last month when she became “seriously intoxicated” and “unruly and violent.”

After authorities arrived, Lamar was reportedly trying to help Damon when the correspondent bit her on the left arm. TMZ reports the suit claims that while being provided medical assistance, Damon declared she was a “major reporter for CNN.”

My Note: CNN’s ratings are down because nobody seems to trust them anymore. Unfortunately, the owners will not allow the station to tell the truth – they kill the truth. Just look at CNN international; the ads are louder, the journalists make too much unpleasant noise, no integrity, no honesty – THEY SIMPLY HAVE LITTLE TO TELL!

They parrot uncritically the New-World-Order controlled global mass media Propaganda. Almost all the journalists and presenters of CNN and co. who ‘have something to say’ are often partial, biased and opinionated, self-righteous, self-centered and selfish – in no way qualified to report or comment due to these facts. The only things we have now with such news media are disinformation,misinformation or distractions. Folks are so shrouded in Lies and Deception, they seem unable to see what’s coming.

On one hand, I give credit to their core journalism skills, on the other, I’ve been able to notice that 10 of the most irritating, boring, attention-seeking and overrated. CNNInternational correspondents, presenters and commentators who destroy CNN are:

  1. Richard Quest
  2. Becky Anderson
  3. Hala Gorani
  4. Fareed Zakaria
  5. Christiane Amanpour
  6. Anderson Cooper
  7. Sara Sidner
  8. Arwa Demon
  9. Nima Elbagir
  10. Reza Sayah

Non-Arabs Don’t Need Al Jazeera

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 18, 2013

My note: I read the following report:

Al Jazeera’s English and Arabic websites are reported to have been blocked in Ethiopia”

…and thought that it’s a wonderful thing! They should also do the same thing with the redundant news source of Al Jazeera TV – a biased Islamic propaganda machine, which pushes arab viewpoint, instead of reporting news or airing programs in an objective way. Al Jazeera is blocked even in the United States. Every Ethiopian should remove it from his/her channel listings, and refrain from everything “Al”, like in Al-Jazeera, Al-Gore, Al-Thani, Al-Saud etc. The prefix “Al” in the Ethiopic grammer, like in “Mewuded” “Al’mewuded” is negation, and it always means trouble.  

It’s a shame that the despotic nation of Qatar – which just sentenced its own Poets to Life in Prison for a Verse – is active in promoting its own version of freedom and justice across Africa.

The following articles perfectly give a description of one of the most dangerous medias of our time. Ethiopians should be warned to not tune in to this misleading media organization which was created with the help of some greedy western media makers.

The collapse of Al-Jazeera

TheFrogTheOXThe fact that the channel is owned and tightly controlled by the undemocratic and authoritarian Qatari royal family, that jails independent journalists who criticize the regime at home, seems to have gone unnoticed and ignored by many. But since the start of the Arab Spring, that is slowly starting to change.

According to an article that appeared in the German magazine Der Spiegel, many leading journalists and TV anchors have started to leave the channel in recent months. According to one of those that has recently left, the German based Aktham Sulimen, “Before the beginning of the Arab Spring, we were a voice for change…a platform for critics and political activists throughout the region. Now, Al-Jazeera has become a propaganda broadcaster.”

According to another Beirut based correspondent, “Al-Jazeera takes a clear position in every country from which it reports – not based on journalistic priorities, but rather on the interests of the Foreign Ministry of Qatar……In order to maintain my integrity as a reporter, I had to quit.”

In truth, Al-Jazeera was never an independent media outlet and always had a political bias.

I can remember watching its Arabic language coverage of the revolution in Egypt and noticing that it dedicated two hours to a rambling speech by Muslim Brotherhood-allied cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who also happens to be based in Qatar. The speech didn’t even attract a large crowd in Egypt and was largely irrelevant to what was happening on the streets. It was merely propaganda for the Muslim Brotherhood, which did not lead the revolution but is close to the Qatari royal family.

Al-Jazeera’s “Alternative Viewpoint” in Qatar’s Paradise

Al-Jazeera is not, however, a communications medium in the Western sense; it is a psychological warfare medium. Its cameras are always turned outward; they never criticize Qatar’s tyrannical, dictatorial, corrupt, plutocratic leaders or their exploitation of foreign workers, who have neither the status nor rights of Qatari nationals. Al-Jazeera’s ongoing propaganda campaign against the Arab states in the Middle East is a move chosen by the rulers of Qatar to deflect Arab, Western and effervescent local attention from what is happening in the corrupt Al-Thani family’s dark, closed emirate of wealth.

Although it promises aid to financially needy Islamic countries, it sends just the occasional pittance when t feels a need to bolster its popularity. Meanwhile huge unreported sums go to support Islamist terrorist organizations such as Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Jabhat Alnusra Al Islamiya in Syria. The rest of country’s enormous oil revenues are channeled into the coffers of the rulers and their close associates, and are used to pay for their entertainment or for building enormous towers. The rest of the population — most of which are foreign workers whose labor they exploit and who have no civil or social rights — is not invited to join the party.

Although Al-Jazeera incites Muslim masses around the world to revolt against “repressive regimes,” while calling for “democracy,” “pluralism,” and the ousting of totalitarian rulers, Qatar itself does not hold elections, has no political parties, has no democratic institutions, and its citizens have no political or social rights. What Qatar does have, with the help of Sharia [Islamic religious law], is a strong, family-run system of enforcing internal security and suppressing opposition. Al-Jazeera is the well-oiled and well-funded machine of a family employing armed mercenaries who call themselves “media personnel”: Propaganda warriors who use cameras and microphones as weapons. Qatar therefore has every reason to hide what happens within its borders and look for defects in other places.

Al-Jazeera takes two editorial routes: its English-language programs present a moderate, cultured version of its propaganda, different from what is broadcast by its Arabic-language programs. Nonetheless, its purpose seems to be to spread Islam and undermine secularism.

Al-Jazeera’s reporting is unbalanced in that it gives favorable coverage to Islamic regimes and movements it wants to strengthen, and slanders those it wants to weaken. Its sights are set on changing regimes. Al-Jazeera effectively created the Arab Spring by endlessly rebroadcasting footage of the fruit-seller in Tunisia who set himself on fire to protest his government. Every time there was a small demonstration, Al-Jazeera would cover it and air it time and again until the people of Tunisia were sufficiently whipped up.

Al-Jazeera’s reporting is also unbalanced when it is turns to the religiously-motivated activities of Islamist groups in other countries, where the Arab Spring was turned into an Islamist Winter, and where the good intentions of democratically-minded young Muslims were exploited and perverted as, after the revolutions, Islamists seized power. Al-Jazeera’s bias is also evident in its support for the dictatorship of Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt at the expense of the country’s moderate, secular, democracy-seeking opposition, on whose back the Islamization of the country is taking place.

As a TV channel, Al-Jazeera does not operate under accepted Western norms. It is a fundamentalist terrorist communications base operating under Qatari political cover, with a pretense of pluralism. While in the other Arab countries, to reach the Islamic paradise, people need to kill Jews and be killed in wars, dying as shaheeds [martyrs] in the battles of Islam, according to Al-Jazeera only Qatar is already a genuine paradise on earth. Everything there is perfect, so there is no need to report the news.

When America’s enemies invade America’s media

It would be interesting to get an update on enemy penetration of today’s mainstream media. Such a review won’t happen (at least in public) because HUAC/HISC and its Senate counterpart the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee (SISC) are long gone, thanks to pressure from Communists, fellow-travelers, and embarrassed liberals.

There are government entities today that are supposed to be looking out for us with regard to chinks in our internal security armor. Their ability to do so is questionable at best.

But now, with the Al gore/Al-Jazeera deal, our current enemies have gone way beyond the sneak-around, undercover methodology utilized by Stalin’s secret agents. Here we have in broad daylight an enemy takeover of a telecommunications medium with the capability of reaching millions of homes right here in the USA.

As Cliff Kincaid said at his February 5 news conference, Al-Jazeera is not entitled to the protections of the First Amendment because it is global terrorist entity – a front for Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

A foreign entity desiring to own telecommunications operations in the U.S. is supposed to go through a vetting process by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). None of that has taken place, so the Al-Jazeera takeover is a violation of the law right there.

The legal process is known as CFIUS – the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, an inter-agency panel of the U.S. Government, chaired by the Secretary of the Treasury and including members from 16 departments and agencies. No legally-required application by Al-Jazeera has been made to this body.

Under the transfer arrangement, the name of the channel under its new ownership is to be Al-Jazeera America. That, in and of itself, is labeled by Kincaid as “a complete and utter fraud,” especially given that Al-Jazeera is fronting for people whose fondest wish is “Death to America.”
