On 10th B-Day, English “Al-Jazeera” Re-Launches for Gazillionth Time

By Debbie Schlussel
In honor of its tenth anniversary as an Arabic language channel, Al-Jazeera–the Terrorist News Network–claims it will launch its “new” English language channel, Al-Jazeera International, on November 15th.
But, in fact, the channel has already launched in April of this year. And it was a complete failure. No cable providers would carry it. It was the sound of a tree falling in the forest, and no-one being there to hear it (thankfully, in this case). They’ve actually had several launches of the English channel. Hopefully, this latest one will be as successful.

I’ve written about the dummies and suck-ups they’ve reached out to (and I’ve been cited for my work on that), including the idiotic Marine Lt. Josh Rushing of “Control Room” fame (read my column on this dolt and Jazeera’s terrorists, “Al Jazeera’s American Boob“). He was supposed to be the military press liaison to Jazeera and other America-haters in Iraq. But Rushing was demoted back to Hollywood when the pro-Jazeera producers of “Control Room” got him to agree with every bit of anti-Israel, anti-American jingoism and propaganda his Islamist press buddies pimped to him. He was supposed to be the press handler but they sure handled him. Al-Jazeera was the only company that would hire him.
From Incompetent Marine Press Person to Al-Jazeera Tool . . .

Semper FOOLis: Former Marine Lt. Josh Rushing

Then, there’s former “Nightline” hack Dave Marash, the anchor of this “network.” He was picked because he’s a Jew–so he could see, “Well, I’m a Jew, and I don’t think the only place that would still pay me after ‘Nightline’ is anti-Semitic because . . . .” As I’ve said before, trust me, Marash wasn’t hired for movie-star anchor looks. He told the Philadelphia Daily News’ Gail Shister:

I do not see Al Jazeera as the antagonist of the Jews or the Israelis. It is a friend of the Jews, a friend of Israel, a friend of peace and harmony in the Middle East.

As I said then:

Uh-uh. Keep telling yourself that, Dave.

And then, there’s Ted Koppel. He considered working for Jazeera, too. But why work for them, when he can find an American tax-funded media outlet that hates America as much as Jazeera (or even more)–NPR (a/k/a National Palestinian Radio)?
Yes, I’ve appeared on Al-Jazeera. Somebody has to defend the Infidel position. But that doesn’t mean I’m a fan. I’m not.
Like I said, I only hope that Al-Jazeera’s gazillionth launch of it’s English network is as successful as the previous ones . . . and that it quickly goes the way of the 8-track, disco, the VCR, and Hillary Clinton’s cookie-baking career.
And, by the way, Josh Rushing, you’re nothing more than an Islamist tool. Useful idiot, baby.

Semper FOOLis…now that’s funny├▒

We don’t need no stinkin’ Al-Jazeera. We got the Cairo News Network:
see my post at -http://connectthedots2006.blogspot.com/2006/11/earlier-proof-cnn-is-pro-terror.html
“I just did a search for ‘Al Jazeera’, the all-muslim, all-terrorism news network, and just found an interesting article at this website, the TBS Journal:
The Courting of Al-Jazeera
by TBS Managing Editor
Sarah Sullivan
While Washington asked the emir of Qatar to “rein in” Al-Jazeera, American
networks were headed to Doha in search of a deal.
It’s nearly midnight in Doha, and we are in a cafe on a pier jutting out over the shoreline of the Persian Gulf. The cafe is empty and the night air quiet├│except for the insistent ring of mobile telephones. Al-Jazeera Managing Director Mohammed Jasim Al-Ali takes a call from an American TV network executive. The airstrikes are well underway, and the Qatar-based satellite news channel, by now well known to TV audiences and Washington decision-makers alike, is the only TV presence in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Washington, in early October, asked Qatar to rein in the satellite channel, claiming it fans anti-American sentiment. American broadcasters, though, want Al-Jazeera to make them a deal.
The story continues…
Although this is a perfect example of how two organizations can be of mutual assistance, agreements between Al-Jazeera and CNN are not just a result of, nor limited to, crisis coverage. “We’ve had a history of cooperation with CNN,” Mr. Al-Ali says. “Three or four months ago we had a meeting with them to agree on cooperation, so that in areas where they are strong we would join in, and in the places that we’re strong they’d have our support. It became formal around two and a half months ago, and more so after Sept. 11. It’s a long-term agreement, not just for this crisis.”
Al-Jazeera became a CNN World Report contributor a year ago, and over the summer officials from the two organizations met both in Washington and in Doha to cement a relationship. “After Sept. 11,” Nasr says, “we realized we need a CNN presence in the Al-Jazeera newsroom to figure out how we can cooperate.” Nasr, a Lebanese American equally fluent in English and Arabic, was in Doha by the 14th.
“Looks like CNN was in bed with the terrorists as early as 2001. I’d say that qualifies as TREASON (see What’s so wrong with showing Patriotism in the Media?), not purveyors of ‘the unvarnished truth.’
Just in case you’re wondering, the TBS on that site is not Ted Turner’s OTHER network. Here’s the copyright at the bottom of the page: ‘Copyright 2001 Transnational Broadcasting Studies – TBS is published by the Adham Center for Television Journalism, the American University in Cairo.'”

Here’s what it might happen if Al Jazeera fails again:
CNN will open another channel called “JZCNN” where JZ stands for “Jazeera” something like MSNBC.
And the Arab Terrorists, with the help of the 21st century Benedict Arnorlds, will have total access to those idiots, dumbass Americans who believe anything the media -any media- tells them.

Deb, If I’m not mistaken, some of the top guns at al-Jazeera were with the so-called “Voice of America” beforehand. VOA uses American taxpayer money to make propaganda, sometimes quite vicious and anti-American. That’s like NPR and PBS that also use taxpayer money to speak against America.
As for Ted Koppel, I can’t stand the sight of him. His political attitudes show that an organization can impose its attitudes and values on those within it. Otherwise, it gets rid of them. For instance, what ever happened to David Schoenbrun who was pro-Israel?
