With Al Jazeera’s purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV, the American wingnuts are losing their minds over it because Al Jazeera sounds all foreign and stuff so they’re probably terrorists. But the Muslim wingnuts apparently think Al Jazeera is an evil traitor to the cause of Islam, according to the Salafi Center of Manchester:
haikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) a member of the committee of Major Scholars (Saudi Arabia) stated:
“There is much evil in Al-Jazeerah news. There is much evil and provocation in it. There are a people presented in it who speak haphazardly in the affairs of the Religion and in the affairs of fiqh. They make unlawful that which Allaah has made lawful or make lawful that which Allaah has made unlawful in their verdicts, and this is a severe danger. The evil of hearkening to news in it is widespread at present… and all that is attributed to it is evil and none praises it.”
So they both agree that Al Jazeera is evil. How unsurprising.
