So do Jennifer Granholm, Al Gore, the N.Y. Times, Media Matters’ David Brock, and the Color of Change.
You have to love it.
Joy Behar now works for an employer whose Al Jazeera network, in the words of Current TV co-founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, “was founded with the same goals we had for Current.”
The co-star of Barbara Walters’ famous morning chat show The View, along with her Current colleague Jennifer Granholm, the former liberal Governor of Michigan, are now two of the main pillars of the Al-Jazeera line up.
Media Matters? Headed by the famously “Hey, I’m gay” David Brock? They have been linked with Al-Jazeera, the television home of a popular Islamic cleric who believes gays should be executed.
And that quick-to-take-media-offense leftist group Color of Change? Are they taking offense at the sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera? Is the New York Times? Right.
Did I mention that this is the same Al Jazeera that threw a televised birthday for Samir Kuntar? A terrorist who took a rifle butt to smash the skull of a 4-year-old Israeli girl when he attempted to kidnap her family?
Well. Where to begin?
Let’s begin with one of Ms. Behar’s and Ms. Granholm’s new Al Jazeera colleagues.
That would be one Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Islamic theologian who hosts Sharia and Life, a show that is said to have an audience of 60 million around the globe. Joy’s new colleague is also the host of a website called IslamOnline, for which he serves as the chief religious scholar.
So what does al-Qaradawi discuss on his show? What is it exactly that makes him such a hit with his large audience?
Al-Qaradawi hates Barbara Walters. Well, not really Barbara personally. No, he’s not that specific. It’s just that he hates Jews. And America’s most famous television journalist is Jewish. It’s nothing personal. So when he preached a sermon back there on January 28, 2009, on Jews saying he wanted to “kill them, down to the very last one” he was obviously including Barbara Walters.
Joy’s new buddy is also grateful for the Holocaust. As reported here by the Daily Caller:
As translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, Al-Qaradawi said that “throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler.”
“By means of all the things he did to them –- even though they exaggerated this issue –- he managed to put them in their place,” Al-Qaradawi continued. “This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers.”
Then there’s al-Qaradawi’s views on women. He’s all in favor of wife-beating if it’s deserved – although he believes it should be done “lightly.” (A belief he shares, by the way, with President Obama’s “Granny Sarah,” as we noted here in a story discussing Sarah Obama’s Sharia fundraising activities.) And but of course, he’s a big fan of female genital mutilation.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
