Over the weekend, Qatari regime propaganda outfit Al Jazeera published and subsequently took down an unfathomably anti-Semitic video that questioned the number of Jews murdered by the Third Reich, accused Jews of exploiting the unprecedented genocide of the Shoah in order to curry favor for a Zionist state, and argued that Zionism itself is ideologically derivative of genocidal Nazi ideology. The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) deserves much in the way of credit for exposing this and helping to shame Al Jazeera into taking down the vile video.

This is truly awful stuff. Although it ought not to be breaking news that Al Jazeera, which is funded by the lavish terror-supporting emirs of the duplicitous Qatari regime and which previously served as the preferred mouthpiece for Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda, has a wee bit of an institutional anti-Semitism problem. As anti-Islamism activist David Reaboi wrote in The Washington Times in February:
Since Qatar’s most prominent export — the state-owned television network Al Jazeera — was founded in 1996, the [Muslim] Brotherhood has played a crucial role in programming and setting the editorial line, providing the network’s strong ideologically Islamist backing. …
In fact, Al Jazeera is the world’s most successful, sophisticated and influential state-directed information operation.
It is remarkably aggressive in service of Qatar’s foreign policy interests, which include four key elements: (1) undermining the stability of its neighbors, especially Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates; (2) promoting Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood in vulnerable, Western open societies; (3) financially and diplomatically supporting violent terrorist groups like Hamas, al Qaeda and the Taliban; and (4) assisting the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, Iran, in evading US sanctions as it seeks to develop nuclear weapons.
