It turns out that even Al-Jazeera is too Zionist for the Saudis! Yes, it's the same Al-Jazeera that habitually broadcasts images of Israeli retaliation without noting the terrorism that provoked it. It's a Zionist plot! Well, what isn't?
Here is the report:
Saudi Arabia's religious authorities have issued a new edict, banning Muslims from watching the Arab TV network Al-Jazeera -- which the U.S. often accuses of being anti-American and anti-Israeli. Thing is, the edict condemns Al-Jazeera as "Zionist television" and "a podium for airing poisonous ideas."
And it warns Muslims against "introducing evil to their homes and destroying them by watching Al-Jazeera, which is a provocative and evil channel." Instead, the edict says, "Saudis can have access to all the news and information [they need] through Saudi newspapers, radio and television."
