Al Gore’s $500 Million Trojan Horse

The forces of jihad have always been able to use petrodollars to bribe susceptible westerners into going along with the agenda. One such recent case in the Sultan of Qatar's recent $500 million dollar acquisition of Al Gore's failing Current TV, which will become a platform for the Sultan's al-Jazeera, AKA Jihad TV. Yes, Americans now will be able to experience jihadi snuff films, anti Us and anti_israel propaganda and the Muslim Brotherhood's Sheik Qaradawi's anti-semitic Islamist sermons first hand, in an estimated 41 million homes.To call this a Trojan Horse is entirely appropriate.

The Spectator's Andrew B. Wilson has a fine piece on the subject. Here's a slice:

Finally there is good news on the jobs front for the Obama administration. Al Jazeera, or “Terrorism TV,” as it used to be known for celebrating the three thousand Americans killed on 9/11 and other exploits by Osama bin Laden, announced plans to create some 200 jobs in the United States over the next six months — in its headquarters at the UN in New York, in Washington, D.C., and in bureaus in Detroit, New Orleans, San Francisco, and other cities.

“Imagine six or seven years ago, trying to find real estate for Al Jazeera in Washington,” gushed Rob Wheelock, the former ABC executive who is in charge of establishing Al Jazeera in the United States. “We’re going to have signage just like CBS, ABC, CNN, CBN, just like everyone else. We’re psyched.”

Perhaps the signage will include skull-and-crossbones, or some other fitting image of human slaughter.

Yes, as Mr. Wheelock said, it is hard to believe the cable network enterprise that did so many fawning interviews with the late terrorist leader — and others chanting “Death to America” — would have stood any chance of putting up its own news rooms in New York, Washington, D.C., or any other American city during the George W. Bush administration.

And that is another sign of how far our nation has regressed over the past four years. {...}

Al Jazeera has two faces. There is the Doha-based broadcast center that has ceaselessly celebrated Islamic extremists (and is also home to Al Jazeera English); and there is newly established Al Jazeera America. Now we are supposed to believe that the face which has always been contorted in the most violent rage is false (or at least receding), while other represents the transition to a peaceful and democratic future.

To believe that, you have to believe that the lion will lie down in peace with the lamb. That is to say, you have to believe that all it will take to quell the Islamist extremists who hate westernization in all its forms — most especially, the emancipation of women and open acceptance of homosexuality, but also including an in-built hatred of democracy and representative government — will be to break bread on a regular basis with politically correct progressives, who share their distaste for free markets and limited government, but nothing else beyond that.

Read the whole thing.
