Al Jazeera, the Arabic news television channel headquartered in the Middle East (Doha, Qatar), purchased the Current TV channel at the end of 2012 giving it the potential of reaching millions of viewers in the United States.

Al Jazeera is a news company that is owned by the non-democratic, monarch styled emirate of Qatar who does not afford citizens freedom of the press, espouses Islamic Sharia law, backs the head of Hamas and supports the Muslim Brotherhood.  Qatar is a Muslim-majority country with Islam as the state religion.   Qatar is ruled by an emir who has been very adept at using Islamists, especially the Muslim Brotherhood, to promote his country’s interests and bolster his own domestic legitimacy.  AL Jazeera journalists that are imprisoned in Egypt for allegedly supporting the Muslim Brotherhood were denied bail on March 31, 2014.  The Qatari-owned media company Al-Jazeera saw 22 members of its staff in Egypt resign on Monday over what they allege was “biased coverage” of the events that unfolded in Cairo during the week of July 2, 2013.

The Wall Street Journal reports“More due diligence might have included a review of the close journalistic coverage over the years of Al Jazeera's Arabic and English broadcasts, which discloses the unsurprising fact that the network reflects the interests of the government that runs it—making it akin to Vladimir Putin's Russia Today and Beijing's Xinhua. The emir of Qatar, Hamid bin Khalifa Al Thani, appointed his cousin as chairman of Al Jazeera. The emir was last in the news for donating $400 million to Hamas, a terrorist organization.”

Aljazeera.com reports that Qatar supported the April 1, 2013 re-election of Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal.   Khaled Mashaal said that the “Zionists are enemies of Allah and the prophets, and called for preparing to liberate Jerusalem and restore the homeland once more through jihad, the rifle, and self-sacrifice” during a speech in Cairo on October 3, 2012.   Khaled Meshaal lives in Qatar

Alarabiya.net reported:  Headline caption We aired lies: Al Jazeera staff quit over misleading Egypt coverage.  As many as 22 Al Jazeera employees have quit since the overthrow of Mohammad Mursi, amid concern over the channel’s alleged bias towards the Muslim Brotherhood and its coverage of Egypt.  Criticism over the channel’s editorial line, the way it covered events in Egypt, and allegations that journalists were instructed to favor the Brotherhood are said to be the main reasons behind the mass resignations.  As many as 22 Al Jazeera staff resigned on Monday, Gulf News reported, but other media said only seven had left the broadcaster.  Al Jazeera correspondent Haggag Salama resigned accusing the station of “airing lies and misleading viewers”, Gulf News reported. The newspaper also said that four Egyptian members of editorial staff at the network’s headquarters in Doha had resigned in protest.

There is more information regarding Al Jazeera and their purchase of Current TV posted at the bottom of this article.

DirecTV boasts of surpassing 30 million subscribers in the United States and Latin America, more subscribers than any cable company inside the United States.  Therefore, DirecTV has the capability of delivering Al Jazeera America into more homes than any company in the United States.  The ranking of cable companies by their number of cable subscribers is posted below. 

Current TV had approximately 22,000 viewers.  Americans by and large are NOT interested in the content of Current TV.  If any increase in viewers occurs as a result of the channel becoming Al Jazeera America it will be because of Al Jazeera’s Islamist propaganda which does not serve America well.

  Leftist/Jihadist Alliance: Al Jazeera acquires Current TV

The following report comes from Jihadwatch.org

As I noted earlier today, Al-Jazeera has been dubbed "the most powerful voice of the Muslim Brotherhood." And Pamela Geller has noted that "Al Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in the world. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was arrested on terror charges. Al Jazeera also has for years been the recipient of numerous Al Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, Zawahiri, and American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet they never seem to be able to trace where these videos are coming from. They have repeatedly been set up at the point of attack right before a bomb went off, so that they could take the picture of the slaughtered, dismembered bodies."

The Left and the jihadis have been cooperating for years. This makes their alliance official.

"Al Jazeera Acquires Current TV," by Brian Stelter for the New York Times, January 2 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

6:48 p.m. | Updated Al Jazeera on Wednesday completed a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore and his business partners seven years ago.

Current will provide the pan-Arab news giant with something it has sought for years: a pathway into American living rooms. Current is available in about 60 million of the 100 million homes in the United States with cable or satellite service.

Rather than simply use Current to distribute its English-language channel, called Al Jazeera English and based in Doha, Qatar, Al Jazeera will create a new channel, called Al Jazeera America, based in New York. Roughly 60 percent of the programming will be produced in the United States, while the remaining 40 percent will come from Al Jazeera English.

Florida Family Association is recording the programs on Current TV for the purpose of identifying advertisers.  The Florida Family Association office will use special software to contact and track companies that advertise on Current TV.  Initial communications with each advertiser will stress the extreme nature of the new owners of Current TV and encourage them to stop spending their money on the channel.  After having given advertisers adequate time to respond, Florida Family Association will initiate email alerts to report the companies that are willing to support a mouthpiece of the Muslim Brotherhood.

This is truly a very unfortunate event for America.  A counter measure by this organization will be in place for many years to come as has been the case for numerous other issues Florida Family Association has challenged during the past 24 years.
