Muslim terrorist news network now in America

Al Jazeera, the pan-Arab news giant, has long tried to convince Americans that it is a legitimate news organization, not a parrot of Middle Eastern propaganda or something more sinister. It just bought itself 40 million more chances to make its case.

Al Jazeera on Wednesday announced a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore

Al Jazeera on Wednesday announced a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore, a former vice president, and his business partners seven years ago. Al Jazeera plans to shut Current and start an English-language channel, which will be available in more than 40 million homes, with newscasts emanating from both New York and Doha, Qatar.

For Al Jazeera, which is financed by the government of Qatar, the acquisition is a coming of age moment. A decade ago, Al Jazeera’s flagship Arabic-language channel was reviled by American politicians for showing videotapes from Al Qaeda members and sympathizers. Now the news operation is buying an American channel, having convinced Mr. Gore and the other owners of Current that it has the journalistic muscle and the money to compete head-to-head with CNN and other news channels in the United States.

Al Jazeera did not disclose the purchase price, but people with direct knowledge of the deal pegged it at around $500 million, indicating a $100 million payout for Mr. Gore, who owned 20 percent of Current.

Mr. Gore and his partners were eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31, lest it be subject to higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1, according to several people who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. But the deal was not signed until Wednesday.

A spokesman for Al Jazeera said that antitrust regulators had not expressed any objections to the deal

Going forward, the challenge will be persuading Americans to watch — an extremely tough proposition given the crowded television marketplace and the stereotypes about the channel that persist to this day.

“There are still people who will not watch it, who will say that it’s a ‘terrorist network,’ ” said Philip Seib, the author of “The Al Jazeera Effect.” “Al Jazeera has to override that by providing quality news.” source – NY Times

  • Al Gore is a 20% TRAITOR. How could he sell his 20% to a Muslim Terrorist News Network? Is this legit or is a criminal act?

  • What is your point?

    Your beloved lying Fox news is connected to Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal who has a significant financial interest and voting shares in Fox.

    Get out of politics, your minds are far too small to comprehend it. Stick with fire and brimstone, Satan, and rapture stories. I’m sure there is a life-time of end-times material you can conjure up.

    OR how is this for a radical idea… live like Jesus, focus on the positive and do something good for the world, or just your neighbour, regardless of what religion (or not) they practice.

    No… I didn’t think you would care for that.

    Let the insults roll. LOL

    • Very arrogant of you, preaching a Word you obviously have no belief in. Why do you bother coming here? — To satisfy your long-punished ego by jumping down the throats of those who do believe? Here’s an even more radical idea voiceofreason–read again the Word that says, “The only way to the Father is through Me.” That’s your “reason” for the day.

    • What does focusing on the positive do? The world is all about “positive thinking” Hitler was a positive thinker and so is Satan “I will be like the Most High”

      It’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Here’s the LORD’s view of the nations is this positive thinking? Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: …All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity. Isaiah 40:15,17

      If people aren’t aware they are lost they have no need for a Savior right? You want to tell someone everything is hunky dory when they’re in a sinking ship?

  • @Ronald Coleman – perhaps you to take a better look at your beloved Fox.

    Traitor? You might also enlighten yourself by looking into the actions of your beloved Republican party. It is clear to any intelligent person that they put their egos, greed, and vindictiveness way ahead of the welfare of the nation.

    The only people who do not agree are Republican HQ (aka Fox news) and the neocons. The rest of the U.S. and the world see through the B.S. and lies. The facts are on my side.

  • The Lord is not happy in fact he is angry, very angry at America.

    Leviticus
    26:17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you…….

    26:25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

    26:27 And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me;

    26:28 Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

    26:32 And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.

    26:33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

    These are the ways God passes judgement by handing you over to your enemies. Serious stuff! This is what happens when the people of the land do not turn towards God. Its happening in the news. This post is another example of it. Hope you watched the O’Riley Factor from Jan. 2, 2012 as he pointed out some things on Obama that a Christian should pick up on.

    • Romans 1:18
      God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity

      18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness,

      Romans 1:26-27
      26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

      Romans 1:32
      32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

      That last one is is referring to people who are not partaking in the acts of immorality and impurity but they are considered the same because they approve of it or condone it!

      Watch this! Bible on evolution but in it discusses these acts and how God punishes them and YES the bible talked about evolution that false religion Karl Marx born communism on.

  • Powerful video….thanks for sharing. America is indeed on a dangerous path.

  • Oh… let the cherry picking bible quoting begin! Quoting the bible to prove some crazy idea is no different that numerologist that play with numbers until it proves their crazy ideas!

    Hey, I have no trouble with the teachings of Jesus… but everything else is pure and dangerous garbage!

    What we can learn from the bible (especially old testament):
    – Slavery is acceptable
    – You mothers and daughters should be all dead
    – You should be dead
    – The entire world should be dead

    Oh, what a lovely book of peace!

    Deuteronomy 14:6-7 – You may eat any animal that has a split hoof divided in two and that chews the cud. However, of those that chew the cud or that have a split hoof completely divided you may not eat the camel, the rabbit, or the coney.

    You are all sinners! By the way, Rabbits do not chew cud!

    Leviticus 20:9 – If anyone curses his father or mother, he must be put to death.

    Deuteronomy 22:20-1 – If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house.

    Exodus 35:2 – For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death.

    Deuteronomy 7:1-2 – When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations . . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.

    Exodus 21:20-21 – If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.

    Leviticus 25:44-45 – Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property.

    Ephesians 2:8-9 – For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith . . . not by works.
    OR NOT??
    James 2:14-17- What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? . . . Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

    So, which is it?
    – You may be the worst of humans, you may rape, pillage, and kill for your entire existence but as long as you have faith, you will go to heaven. Conversely, you may lead of life of good but if you don’t have faith in the one ‘true’ god, you will burn in hell.
    UM…. OR NOT??? Oh the contradictions… almost as if it were written by humans and NOT some divine being.

    Peace or NOT peace??
    John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
    Matthew 10:34 – Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

    Has anyone seen God OR not??
    Genesis 32:30 – So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, “It is because I saw God face to face, and my life was preserved.”
    Exodus 33:11 – The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks with his friend.
    John 1:18 – No one has ever seen God.

    • @voiceofass-oles. Troll someplace else….your depth of thought is likened to a 30-second beer commercial on a football Sunday afternoon. Typical human secularist, athiest, agnostic diatribe. I guess it would not have mattered if you were aborted since you deify yourself… copy and paste man. Take your oil based pc which you need so bad to troll with and provoke some islamic site!!!

  • You quote the bible knowing nothing of what it says. The slavery the bible is referring to is reward from God. It works like this. If you follow the Lords path your enemies will be your slaves and if you do not follow Gods path you will be your enemies slaves. Do not quote the bible to me ye who does not know the bible or walk in Jesus. Your time is coming.

    • That goes for you and Obama who have both misquoted and mislead the understanding of the bible.

  • You won’t understand it cause you do not repent and ask forgiveness for your sins. If you did all this is very easily explainable. But you did not come here to learn you came here to boast and try to twist and distort. Your mission is that of the anti-christs of the many that will come.

    YOU START OFF WITH SAYING HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS THEN YOU END WITH John 1:18 and don’t even provide the whole verse

    The whole verse is this:
    John 1:18 No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him.
    John was right no one has seen God till grace was given, grace was given by Jesus Christ! Jesus said this:

    John 14 8:11
    8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
    9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.

    DO NOT TWIST AND DISTORT THE BIBLE.

  • Who are these people that are in our government. They are selling out to the enemies of God. Hope he knows that they will turn on him when it comes to a jihad. He will probably sell his soul to live.

  • Its amazing if you really listen to the news and what they report. Whats more amazing is the words they are using. The word demonized and demonizing has been used at least 12 times in the last 24 hrs. Amazing choice of words.

  • Glenn Beck attempted to buy the same network spot as Al Jazeera!

    Wall street journal reports
    “Glenn Beck’s The Blaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,” according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

    More info here: http://www.glennbeck.com/2013/01/02/did-glenn-try-to-buy-current-tv/

    So the networks point of view as well as Al Gores point of view is one of Kill anyone who isn’t Muslim and worship of false gods.

  • Voice of Reason…I don’t understand why you would come to a Christian blog and try and vilify and put down our beliefs in our Lord and Savior. I certainly don’t troll around on muslim or liberal sites and condemn you or your kind. Also, Ronald Coleman did not say one word about FOX news..what the heck are you screaming at him about that for. Lots of anger issues towards Christians?

  • Pingback: ‘OPENLY ANTI-AMERICA BUYS NEWS NETWORK’ « THOUGHTS OF AN OLD MAN()

  • Hey, Voiceof reason. How about a name change to “voiceof confusion.”

    Fyi, check out 1 Corinthians 2:14

    “But the natural man recieveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, becuse they are spiritually discerned.”

    Sir, the more you say, the more you tell on yourself. If you are truly saved, I would suggest that you look into the “first principles of the oracles of God” (Hebrews 5:12)
    and stay away from your rantings which only show your ignorance and your disability to “rightly divide the word of truth” ( 2 Timothy 2:15 ).

    …”I stand in dobut of you.” (Galatians 4:20)

  • Al Gore the biggest useful idiot around. All traitors, treasonist and cowards die a million deaths.

    “You there, Ephialtes (gore)…may you live forever!”

  • Voiceof** deception just came to incite trouble. Anyone who has any questions on what the bible means in regards to what he posted I will gladly answer. He posted random passages that have different contexts based on what was said before and after them. Typical muslim rhetoric. While we are on that here is two interesting videos for you !

    NOTE: watch the video’s closely.

    Obama is a muslim (fact its in his autobiography)
    Obama subdued 3 kings:
    #1 Tunisia January 14, 2011 Obama calls for president Zine al-Abidine bin Ali to step down.

    #2 EGYPT – Feb 12, 2011, Obama calls for President Hosni Mubarak to step down.

    #3 LYBIA – March 11, 2011 Obama calls for Muammar Gaddafi to step down.

    Just noting things.

    • @NEW YORK…man you are dead on the mark with what you write concerning these articles!!! What you have revealed has been assaulting the public for decades while they have been asleep at the wheel. Keep it up!!!

  • To all you cherry pickers is why did Jesus blast the Scribes & Pharisee’s? Also our Holy Bible has the old Covenant & the new Covenant in which by grace we are Saved by believing in what Jesus did at the cross! I don’t believe (like Thomas Jefferson) that red letter (so called) Christians are truly Saved! Then again we hear from those who believed that Paul of Tarsus was of the devil and the writings of Peter were Sa-tanic! The Lord knew what He was doing when guiding man to put what is needed in our Holy Bible and it’s Worded simple enough so all can eventually understand through the guidance of His Sweet Spirit! Zondervan, Wycliff etc have caved in to the devil and this ‘new queen james’ is straight out of the pits of HELL! Yes America is under Judgment, we sinned just like the Israelite’s have so many times and the Lord has gave America a leader who’s god is w/out doubt Sa-tan! One other thing we should learn from history, while the Lord Judges nations He also severely Judges the king’s and all that’s responsible for getting them seated! Theirs going to be a lot of people who feel that they are entitled (including those w/special right’s) that will have their minds blown and will suffer extra hardships, the Lord Is Truly the Master Chess Player. No it’s not funny, the horrors and terrors (great & small) will be way unimaginable even for the Hollywood freaks, then Hades awaits!

    • Well said Willy. Well said. Were in for a hell of a ride! LITERALLY!

  • Per New York…”Voiceof** deception just came to incite trouble.” I 100% agree. Just looking to get people upset and in turmoil. Evil…just igonore him.

  • Just one more indicator that we have had people running our govt that actually hated our country! In addition to which i think Gore is crazy like a fox, pushing his scheme of “global warming” to make lots of money. The earth has gone through cycles of warming and cooling since the beginning

    • Don’t worry they are all going to be very warm very soon I have no doubt about that. TOASTY, CRISP as much as this seems like a cereal commercial. That is not what this is about!

  • News flash: Time Warner Cable has dropped Current TV since the sale to Al-Jazeera. I may not like them very much as a cable provider, but that’s the most decent thing they’ve done in a while. If I had a hat on today, I’d take it off to them.

  • OOOOOOO if I were you and if you only knew who’s television you were watching. Let me give you some facts.

    Ted Turner disregards religions especially Christianity. He openly speaks out against it.
    Ted Turner is a common evolutionist.
    Karl Marx based his communist manifesto on ………you guessed it evolution. Basically communism was based off of evolution.

    Ted Turner is quoted as saying on a microphone in front of thousands of people and to magazine reporters “In 1996, Turner stated in an interview with Audubon Magazine that a 95% population reduction would be ideal. Below is his quote.

    “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.””

    So you know exactly what that means is this:
    There are about 6 billion almost 7 billion people in the world. According to Ted Turner he would like to eliminate or kill off approximately 6 billion people.

    Again he believes in evolution. Here is what the bible says about that false religion called evolution. Of which they been teaching in schools to our children for years. Watch!

    http://youtu.be/USRpv1g7pRs

    Now you know. But you must also know what he owns so your soul is right with the Lord again. Ted Turner owns CNN, TBS, TNT, Turner Classic Movies, Boomerang, Cartoon Network, Gametap, PeachTree TV, and TruTV, TIME WARNER, AND THE ATLANTA BRAVES!!!! Now you know! Save your soul and your children’s and loved ones souls and do not contribute to this satanic media mogul.

  • To be honest I would TURN OFF THE TV IF I WERE RIGHT WITH JESUS CHRIST. These celebs and politicians are all in bed with satan. This rabbit hole goes extremely deep. Soul binding deep! That means your soul for an eternity of damnation is at risk if you contribute to these people. Let me elaborate for you so you can see what is happening in your face on tv, movies, music.

    http://youtu.be/3hSBpazrpbY

    http://youtu.be/3_ZDIV_dXPs

    http://youtu.be/4jtcRIqSBAY

    These people believe in everything that is against God. They preach pro gays, they want to take your guns away, many of them are totally against Christianity, they openly admit worshiping satan and selling their souls, they call Obama the messiah, they are liberals serving satan thinking they believe in God, its not the God we believe in. Everything they stand for is against our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our God is against all they stand for and he specifically told us all about it in the bible.

  • The videos are very telling. I think most people don’t have any idea just how much evil surrounds us. At work today my athiest coworker came in my office and sat down to chat. She said “things are getting so bad. People seem to be going crazy or something. I have a bad feeling about the world…somethings not right” she has no idea just how bad things will get.

    • Pray for her, inform her of what is happening. She is calling out to you without knowing it. She may have been put in front of you.

      • Oh I do. I always do my best to reach her each day. Her lifestyle logically tells me it is a long shot but with prayer and Jesus anything is possible. In my office there are over 50 people. Out of the 50…three believers. My goodness….not good.

  • Ask yourself these few questions:

    Do see how these people are acting now with laws and controls we have now?

    When the laws and controls are gone or turned against you how will they act?

    Liberals, gays, lesbians, pro choice, and list goes on. They are the ones out in the streets now protesting all the time. They want your guns, they want you to remove God from everything, they worship worldly things and false Gods, they promote evolution and communism, and rights for all except Christians ( the protested for laws that force contraception) against God. Abortions kill more people in a year in this country then guns ever will. I the world the number is in the millions with abortion. After you have thought about this and these controlled protests that get out of control now.
    How do you think they will act when your guns are gone, there are no laws or rights for you? The same people who some of you voted for, watched their movies, contributed to their media, allowed them to teach evolution in schools. Think about this. Evolution is taught in school but prayers are not allowed, God is not allowed. My friends do not be mistaken. Christian persecution is just beginning. Stay alert. Thanks be to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Amen!

  • I might also add..I live in a small quiet NH town. (Thank you Jesus for that blessing) but work in a nearby city..for the city. In my job I handle determining benefits. I have been doing this for many years. There is a SHARP increase of rage and anger when people don’t get what they want. We had to add more security. On that note I cant imagine what it will be like when the country is totally broke and there is nothing.

    • There is a line being drawn in the sand. There will be 2 sides and only 2 sides. As we get closer the line becomes more clear. FOR OR AGAINST THERE IS NO IN-BETWEEN. FRIEND OR FOE these are not my words these are the words of God straight out of the bible.

      Luke 13:22-28
      The Narrow Door

      22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. 23 Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?”

      He said to them, 24 “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. 25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’

      “But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’

      26 “Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’

      27 “But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’

      28 “There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out.

      Matthew 7:13-21
      The Narrow and Wide Gates

      13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

      True and False Prophets

      15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

      True and False Disciples

      21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

  • One question for everyone. What television station will show the two witnesses slain in the the streets for the whole world to see while everyone dances in the streets. Could it be Al Jazeera or a future branch there of? Something to ponder.

  • Here is a very interesting video showing how the 1st 3 trumpets may have been blown already, possibly 4. Must watch!

    http://youtu.be/dN2c_uHJROQ

  • Thank goodness for this website and my brothers and sisters in Christ who write encouraging enlightening comments. When I step out into the work world each day I certainly put on my Armour of God because believers are few and far between. Breaks my heart.

  • Good going Love my Savior you blew this post up with comments again! :p lol

  • Sorry..I wont comment anymore.

  • I just realized that NTEB has a radio show!

  • Wow NY…got some chastising there for LMSavior huh? So, she is “blowing up” this post with comments..so much that you have to be a bully? I am counting NINETEEN post from you along with 8 video’s. LMS posted six comments. Your cruelty just took away from your testimony. Everyone should be able to post on here…and not be run off by you. Don’t let him bother you LMS, Looking at all your comments you have been nothing but kind.

  • LOL in case you didn’t know it I was joking, hope she knows it. I was being sarcastic due to all my posts and few posts

  • Alright don’t pick on me now. My writing is atrocious! I am looking at my blog and its a mess. lol Let the corrections begin. I was just kidding LMS I was the one who blew up the thread, but I was on a roll and trying to help people to relate.

  • Mainstream media mostly silent on this…shocker
    Well Fox covered it. That’s all I saw

  • Make no mistake, main stream media has been controlled for quite some time now. For those people who think Fox is on the right side of things, I have one phrase that sums up Fox News. “CONTROLLED OPPOSITION” ~myself Yes they are controlled as well on what they can and can not say. Fox is the controlled opposition and that is all they are.
