Have a look at this. In one of my last threads on Slugger, I entered into a debate on the nature of Al Jazeera. The notion was being posited that this Station was a kind of Radio 2 of the Arab world. Check out the "cartoon" and tell me what you think.

Furthermore, reader Marcus has advised me that Al Jazeera.net is in no way connected to the bad Al Jazeerah.info.

So let's look at the headline on Al Jazeerah.net Here we read about the courageous "resistance" leader Marwan Barghuthi. Saluting this proud hero of Palestinian "resistance" (sic) the good Al Jazeera.net relates our boy Marwan claiming "I am against killing innocent people. But I am proud of the resistance against the Israeli occupation." No word on what the victims of his "resistance" thought - funny enough.

Trouble is, that as far as Al Jazeera.net's pin-up boy Marman an Israeli court ruled today that Barghouti was directly responsible for a January 2002 terror attack on a gas station in the Jerusalem suburb of Givat Ze'ev in which Israeli Yoela Chen was murdered. The attack, the judges said, was carried out at his direct order. Barghouti was also convicted for directing a June 2001 attack in which a Greek monk was murdered in the Jerusalem suburb of Ma'aleh Adumim. He was also convicted of approving the March 2002 attack on Tel Aviv's Seafood Market restaurant in which three people were murdered, as well a car bomb attack in Jerusalem." So much for resistance - translates barbaric murderer.

I bet the IRA are sick that they didn't have the Irish version of Al Jazeera.net. Just imagine..al Bejeejus.net. Just think, "Irish Resistance Fighter's blow up workers Mini-bus at Tee-bane - what choice did they have?" Hang on though..they did have the BBC.

Wonder if it is coincidence that Al Jazeera was set up by ex-BBC folks ????
