Al Jazeera: Non-Arabs Should Not Be Fooled

“Many Arab liberals and reformers were shocked by the sale of former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore’s Current TV to Al Jazeera, a pan-Arab broadcasting system charged with sympathy for terrorists. In 2009, even the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, which can hardly be suspected of anti-Arab attitudes, accused Al Jazeera of negative, biased, and unbalanced reporting, and closed down the Al Jazeera bureau in Ramallah.

Gore and the Democratic party have consistently called for democracy in the Middle East, and welcomed the “Arab Spring,” yet Gore has now bolstered a channel sympathetic to Islamic extremism – not to democracy.”
