    Fascinating. A well-spoken, intelligent man speaks and holfd opinuins.

    However, we wouldn’t hear that in the mainstream media.

    “I wish all Arab media were like Al-Jazeera,” – Gideon Ezra, former deputy head of Israeli General Security Service, quoted in ‘Foreign Policy (FP)’, July/August 2006 issue.

    Al-Jazeera is owned by Qatar’s ruling family, therefore, it’s an official propaganda organ against the “Axis of Resistance” – and most of its top management and leading broadcasters are Zionist Jews.

      rehmat1 Thanks for the link to your excellent article.

      Here in NZ, as elsewhere I imagine, the chattering classes (I include myself) graduate from ‘mainstream’ media to al Jazeera, which is seen as a reliable leftish-wing alternative, ignoring the fact that BBC stalwarts like Tim Sebastian find a home there. Which means that the Qatar version of events in Syria is swallowed without question.
