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, Columbia University is bestowing upon Al-Jazeera its top journalism prize. Goebbels would be so pleased.
The overtly covert — or is that covertly overt? — propaganda war against the West is being waged on all fronts, but no organization has done as much to spread hate, lies and incitement to violence as Al-Jazeera. 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-Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, 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.
91 American, Israeli and Canadian victims of Hezbollah rocket attacks have filed an unprecedented 1.2 billion dollar lawsuit against the Al-Jazeera television network. Al-Jazeera is accused of intentionally providing real-time coverage of the locations of missile strikes inside Israel, in violation of Israeli security regulations, thereby enabling Hezbollah to aim its missiles more accurately.
