Al Jazeera Cartoon Calls Jihadis to Arms

A country invades a nearby nation, rapes its women, murders its children, and tortures its citizens. How do you react? Would you think yourself justified in fighting this evil country?

That is exactly the way many Muslims see us. You would too if your only source of television were al Jazeera.

Take for instance this animated cartoon which is supposeed to be a criticism of Syria. It begins by showing how nobody wants the poor incompetent Syrians. It is even funny for a moment. Of course, it wouldn't be al Jazeera if it didn't end on this frame posted below.

4 I'd settle for an Arabic language channel broadcasting the truth, period. If they dropped the islamic jihad rhetoric and stop being a talking head for terrorists, even Al-J would be fairly acceptable.

The pro-US part would just come naturally.

8 Based on the past events, clarity is in cartoon. It doesn't take a mathematician to determine that Abu Gharaib happened as a result of new attorney general, Alberto Gonzales. Consequently, reality shines on the U.S. military. What is preached at the top slides to the bottom and as such your practice of torture makes you worse than the enemy.

9 This is the "ilk" you aid and abet. Think. Anathema comes to mind.
