Al-Jazeera’s Pro-Hamas Bias

Al-Jazeera’s bias in favor of Hamas is being alleged by the Fatah Palestinian organization. The Israel Insider has the story. So does Frontpagemag.com

We noted this fact last July in one of AIM Reports: “Al-Jazeera has played a clear role in the rise of Hamas (the Islamic Resistance Movement) and its Palestinian election victory in January. From the start, Al-Jazeera has been accused of undermining Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement in order to build up Hamas.”

Israel Insider notes that ”One of Israel’s two leading television cable providers, Yes, decided earlier this month to drop BBC World in favor of Al-Jazeera English. The move represents a small coup for Al-Jazeera since the majority of its founding staff were trained by the BBC for a special Arab-focused section of the British media giant. BBC World will lose half of its Israeli reach on account of the change.”
It adds that, “The allegations of a pro-Hamas bent in the network might also spell political troubles for both Al-Jazeera and Israel. Hamas is staunchly opposed to negotiating with Israel and refuses to recognize the existence of the Jewish state.”

So the Israeli cable provider is making Israel’s existence and survival more questionable.

The answer is to drop Al-Jazeera AND the BBC.
