    It's wrong to support anyone who supports terrorism, and Al Jazeera does that.

    It's not that obvious. I've watched it.

    Obviously you know nothing about Al Jazeera but not unexpected - lots of Americans have little knowledge of the world outside their personal bubbles

    How could any civil human being condone this or do business with anyone who does???

    Get in touch with your humanity before replying.
    In answer to the second claim
    Al-Jazeera admits to 'unethical' behavior over Kuntar party
    The Al Jazeera television station admitted Wednesday that its coverage of Israel's release of convicted Lebanese terrorist Samir Kuntar violated the station's own code of ethics. The admission came in response to a threat by Israel's Government Press Office to boycott the satellite channel unless it apologized.

    In an official letter, a copy of which was obtained by Haaretz, Al Jazeera's director general, Khanfar Wadah, wrote that "elements of the program" broadcast in Kuntar's honor on the night of Saturday, July 19, "violated [the station's] Code of Ethics," and he "regards these violations as very serious."

    He also said he had ordered the channel's programming director to take steps to ensure that such an incident does not recur.
    This and other readings on the subject seem to show that individual producers have at times acted in reprehensible fashion, against the ethical code of the Al Jazeera network - but hey, they're nothing but a bunch of ragheads so they are all guilty, right?

    Al Jazeera is a vile propaganda network, there is no doubt about that. But you needn't use terms like that to make a point.

    When my daughter was in junior high, she attended a large urban school - 1500 kids in three grades, 7, 8 & 9, - I took her to Europe for the first time the summer after Grade 7. Out of 1500 kids, only one other student from her school visited another country during that summer holiday.

    I've lived in 5 countries other than the US since I became an adult, after growing up in a country other than the US.

    No, I don't know ALL about the world but I do know a lot more about the world than the vast majority of Americans - which I think is sad. Far too many Americans seem to think there is nothing worthwhile to be learned from other nations.

    I understand and I'm sorry for questioning you.
