Al Jazeera Opens New Front in Propaganda War Against West

AJ Staffers Start Blog

It's called "Don't Bomb Us" and it's just about what you would expect, whining and disinformation, building on the al Jazeera heritage as an intellectual successor to Josef Goebbels, Adolph Hitler's propaganda minister.

The blog is entirely devoted to two goals: getting liberal blogs to link to stories about the memo alleging that President Bush wanted to bomb al Jazeera, and trying to convince rational people that al Jazeera is actually a journalistic enterprise, rather than the communications arm of international jihad.

Personally, I have no problem with bombing al Jazeera; the propagandists working there have probably caused more deaths than Osama bin Laden.
