1) You claimed before that if people want to discriminate against AJ as part of Qatari government they should also ban PSG and Qatar Airways. I just agreed, the way PSG is run should not be legal. 2) You implied that Israel is similar to Erdogan/Chavez and will not hesitate to use such measures. 3) AJ have practiced in this for years now and kind of perfected the system. Their news in English are toned down and have a liberal theme (as can be seen in AJ+ videos) unlike the news in Arabic. Also, a lot of organizations are not banned in Europe/USA' that doesn't make them not-terrorist. If I'm not mistaken (welcome to correct me on this) Hezbollah is also not banned in many countries and was not banned in US until few years ago. People were walking with their flags in center of London recently and nobody gave a fig. I'm not claiming AJ are terrorists themselves, but they are under total control of a state that does financially support it. About the Prime Minister, you are mistaken with the previous one, who withdrew his support once the violence and racist attitude within the fan group grew. But hey if there is a chance to bash Israel why not eh? By "condemned murderer" I assume you mean the soldier that shot dead the injured terrorist. Yup, you are totally right on this one. The inciting violence thing is mutual and hopefully eventually the government would be replaced and things would change. Media outlets like AJ contribute to feelings of isolation and hatred towards the country, which just makes it easier for assholes like Netanyahu to push more for nationalistic policies. 4) Well if it's the only powerful Arab outlet we should keep it no? Even when it's 100% wrong? Sorry that's not an excuse. 5) Where does he say it is because of the Saudi's? He mentions them once as an afterthought, not as the direct reason. As I said previously, it is most likely a publicity stunt for the Israeli public, which AJ btw is happy to use, that just gives them more ammunition and ground to misportray the events. Also, Egypt, Iraq, India and USA had problems with AJ in the past too, sometimes suspending its broadcast and arresting (in one case at least) its journalists for inciting hatred. So not only Israel and Gulf states. As I mentioned in my first reaction to this post - I am conflicted about this decision. It is a slippery slope and I am interested in all opinions having representation in the media. AJ though make it extremely different. I don't remember where you are from (Scotland?) but just imagine seeing lies and mistruths about your country daily and seeing the effect it has on neutral people who read this. It is not an enviable place to be in.
