Israel plans to shut Al Jazeera operations

Israel is planning to revoke the media credentials of Al Jazeera TV journalists, close its Jerusalem bureau and pull the Qatar-based station’s broadcasts from local cable and satellite providers, Communications Minister Ayoub Kara has announced.

But the closure doesn’t appear imminent and an Israeli official says a legal process is required to implement most of the proposed steps.

The move by Israel adds further pressure on Qatar, which has been involved in a dispute with four of its Arab neighbours.

The measures are intended to bolster Israel’s security and “to bring a situation that channels based in Israel will report objectively”, Kara said.

Al Jazeera says Kara’s comments are unsubstantiated and it will take legal action is Israel acts on its threat.

Journalists working for the pan-Arab station in Israel weren’t expecting imminent moves against them.

“Al Jazeera Media Network denounces this decision, which comes in the context of a campaign that was initiated by a statement made earlier by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu…” Al Jazeera said in a statement late on Sunday.

the gore effect..slightly late but still terminal..

“The measures are intended to bolster Israel’s security and “to bring a situation that channels based in Israel will report objectively”, Kara said.”

thats code for “broadcast the propaganda we want”..

  1. The loosening with Qatar, the lowered amount of requirements other Arab countries are demanding from them, and the trade deals that have been occurring. Yet Al-Jazeera appears to be something “outsiders” are not letting go of.

  2. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.
