European Arabs Launch Campaign to Stop “All-that-Jazzeera“ Broadcasts in Europe. According to the folks at MEMRI org:
“Arabs in Europe have launched a public campaign to stop Al-Jazeera TV broadcasts in Europe. In a petition, they accuse the channel of fostering extremism among European Arab youth and of supporting terrorism.
While the petition’s initiators have not provided their names, it seems likely that they are Iraqi expatriates; although various Arab news websites, such as Elaph, have reported on the campaign, the petition itself has been posted primarily on Iraqi websites.”
The following are excerpts from the petition and from Shallal’s article:
“Since Its Inception, Al-Jazeera Has Chosen the Path of Fostering Violence and Hatred”
“Why should Al-Jazeera be blocked in liberal Europe?
“More than 10 years after the emergence of the extremist Al-Jazeera channel, the time has come for Arabs who live in Europe and believe in a free Europe to defend the principles of a continent that has sacrificed millions of victims to reach its current state of progress, respect for human rights, rejection of extremism, and rejection of the fostering of hatred.
“Since its inception, Al-Jazeera TV has chosen the path of fostering violence and hatred in the world, and has acted so as to be an arm of terrorist forces, such as Al-Qaeda and other extremist forces. [Al-Jazeera TV] has already been prevented from operating in many countries, and some of its presenters and technical crew have been arrested for their involvement in aiding obscurantist terrorist forces like Al-Qaeda and others.”
“The time has come for Al-Jazeera TV, whose name has become ‘the bin Laden channel,’ to face its day of reckoning on the European continent.
“It would be difficult, in this brief [overview], to provide examples of the calamitous influence, danger, and ignominy that Al-Jazeera TV has presented and continues to present. Every day that this channel [continues to] broadcast constitutes a clear violation of the principles of the media, and poisons the minds of the youth…”
These are Arabs that get it. More here. *L* KGS
