Al-Jazeera; You Know Its Bad When …


You know its bad when Al-Jazeera is asked to cease all operations in Iran. According to AP, Iran suspended the nationwide operations of Arab TV broadcaster Al-Jazeera on Monday, accusing it of inflaming violent protests by the Arab minority in its southwest, state-run TV reported. So, you mean Arab countries have issues with Al-Jazeera also? I thought they just kept such actions only for Westerners.

In what must be one of the most puzzling if not humorous questions of the day,

Tehran on Monday ordered the station to cease operations until the network explained the motives behind its coverage, which Tehran believes inflamed the violence

Al-Jazeera promote or inflame violence. Say it isn’t so. NEVER.
