Blame Qatara

Let's See, Geroge Bush wanted to Bomb Al Jazeera. Jordan censored interviews conducted by Al Jazeera. Iran banned Al Jazeera because they criticized the Sistani dude. Egypt and Israel have jailed Al Jazeera reporters. Saudi Arabia is in an all out media war with Qatar. Locally, Jumbo man accused Al Jazeera of being alibis in Lebanon's terrorist attacks. Others attack Qatar and Al Jazeera for being Israel friendly. Al Jazeera reporters have been killed by occupiers/liberators and by insurgents/liberators/terrorists/jihadists in Iraq. They've been jailed in Spain and Guantanamo....


If they are pissing off so many people, they must be doing something right.

Maybe Aljazeera tries too hard to stir up emotions by the classical use of sensationalism.Their quick and wide coverage shows their expansion...but have left something to be admired in their close and detailed reporting.Perhaps its just the Fox network in the Middle East.

Did you hear Qatar's minister of foreign affairs answer to Jumbo man?

Director of media affairs at the STATE Department says "much of our audience either doesn't listen or perceives our efforts to be meaningless U.S. propaganda"

Hello Jamal,
We have to admit the incredible wit of the Qatari government. On one end, Al Jazeera, the populist news channel, for the people, with the people and the great causes (ie Palestinian cause) and the gateway for every terrorist organization that wants to communicate its lovely beheading intentions. On the other end, Qatar serves as a US military base, is one of the few only countries in the ME that has diplomatic relations with Israel and is the US best friend.
Comme ca, tout le monde est content...
