Al Jazeera Causes Scene at Pro-Christian Conference
On July 23, an employee of the radical, Islam-supporting “news” outlet Al Jazeera was thrown out of an event sponsored by a Christian group after sneaking in and secretly recording the event despite being denied media credentials, a report says.
Eyewitness accounts of the incident reported by the Washington Free Beacon on Wednesday, say that two men identified as Matthew Cassel and Micah Garen were ejected from the Christians United for Israel’s (CUFI) annual D.C. gathering after sneaking in and “clandestinely filming events closed to the press”
Both reporters claimed to be working for Al Jazeera at the time and were denied media credentials because of Al Jazeera’s pro-Jihad bias.
As the Beacon reports, “Cassel is a photojournalist with Al Jazeera English,” and “Garen is a cofounder of Four Corners Media. Another Four Corners Media cofounder, Marie-Helene Carleton, had initially applied for television credentials as an Al Jazeera English employee.”
Apparently Cassel left the conference without complaint in in good order, but Garen got into a loud argument with the conference security staff after they confronted him inside the conference (he pretending he didn’t work for Al Jazeera at one point).
In fact, a witness quoted by the Beacon notes that once outside the venue, Garen tried to get violent with police and was dragged off.
The conference had banned recording of the guests in the hallways by any media (as well as other conference goers) and had posted signs to that effect. This was a security move meant to safeguard participants from jihadis that might target them for having dared attend the event.
The video that Garen was taking, though, was of participants in the hallways going to events and in conversations with each other. The nature of the video shows that it was evident that he was trying to hide his camera under his jacket.
“These duplicitous tactics contradict the assertion that Al Jazeera is a legitimate news organization,” a source told the Washington Free Beacon. “If Al Jazeera wishes to be taken seriously as a media outlet, they would be wise to do a better job of training their staff on how to behave like professional reporters, rather than college activists.”
Without question, Al Jazeera is not a “news” network, but a propagandist for Jihad and most recently the Muslim Brotherhood.
Even some former supporters of Al Jazeera are admitting that it is nothing but a pro-Jihadi propaganda network now. Check this out…
Again, Al Jazeera is a pro-jihadi “news” outlet without legitimate journalistic bona fides. Any American that goes to work for them is a traitor to America, the west, and basic human decency.
