From Atlas Shrugs: Egypt Detains 4 Al Jazeera Journalists, Calls Terror TV station "threat to national security"

Maybe Al Gore had his head stuck in the clouds too much to know what he was doing when he sold his cable TV network Currents to the pro-Muslim Brotherhood news organization mouthpiece Al Jazeera. But those people in Egypt who are fighting to hold their country together seem to understand the problem. Here is a report from Pamela Geller's Atlas Shrugs:

Egypt Detains 4 Al Jazeera Journalists, Calls Terror TV station "threat to national security"

Photo:  Anti-Al Jazeera posters have recently appeared in Egypt saying, “A bullet kills a man, a lying camera kills a nation.” This attitude led to the new government closing the channel, after 22 staffers quit in disgust over its pro-Muslim Brotherhood bias.
Al Jazeera is the voice of the Muslim Brotherhood, the group now laying siege to Egypt and burning Christian churches there. (thanks to AIM)
Al Jazeera is a terrorist organization, and yet the impotent Congress allows this jihad propaganda on American airwaves. For well over a year, we have been calling on Congress to investigate the treasonous sale of "Current" TV to al Jazeera (despite other offers, including GBTV). Al Jazeera is the network of the Muslim Brotherhood. Why wasn't it designated a terrorist entity, much like Al Manar (the television station of Hezb'Allah)?
Call Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul and request that the House Homeland Security Committee convene hearings into the national security threat posed by Al Jazeera on American soil: 202-226-8417.
They are bombing in the States but they should not even be on the air.
Egypt detains 4 Al-Jazeera journalists in Cairo Zee News, August 29, 2013

Cairo: The Qatar-based Al-Jazeera English network says four of its journalists have been arrested by Egyptian authorities after they covered events in Cairo.

Al-Jazeera English says correspondent Wayne Hay, cameraman Adil Bradlow and producers Russ Finn and Baher Mohammed were detained on Tuesday.

The network in a statement Thursday called the arrests "a campaign against Al-Jazeera in particular." The arrests came after the network's Al-Jazeera Mubashir Misr affiliate in Egypt was raided and staff detained.
Egypt's interim government says Al-Jazeera is biased in favor of ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, claims denied by the network.Al-Jazeera English said authorities are responsible for the journalists' safety and demanded their release. Egyptian authorities today labeled Al-Jazeera Mubashir Misr a "threat to national security" and took steps to ban it.
