Mayor Bloomberg’s Jihad TV Partnership

Pages: 1 2

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s news company is teaming up with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal to launch “Alarab” next year, a 24/7 news network that is sure to reflect Alwaleed’s anti-Israel viewpoint.

Bloomberg will provide Alarab with five hours of financial-related programming. The focus of the network is to cover the Arab Spring with an emphasis on free speech and press. The manager of the network, Jamal Khashoggi, says it is “going to be to the left of Al-Arabiya and to the right of Al-Jazeera.” With an estimated networth of $19.6 billion, Prince Alwaleed will be in a position to influence the region like never before.

Alwaleed is the Saudi prince that sought to make a $10 million donation to New York City after the 9/11 attacks, only to have his check returned to him by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. The mayor was offended at Alwaleed’s response to the disaster. He said, “At times like this one, we must address some of the issues that led to such a criminal attack. I believe the government of the United States of America should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance toward the Palestinian cause… Our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of Israelis while the world turns the other cheek,” he said.

In other words, the “root cause” of the attacks was America’s alliance with Israel, and if future attacks are to be avoided, that relationship must be downgraded. After Giuliani turned Alwaleed away, the Saudi prince said the mayor had caved to “Jewish pressure.” Alwaleed apparently believes that the U.S. government is held hostage to the “Zionist lobby.”

In 2002, Alwaleed donated $27 million to a telethon on Saudi television for the families of Palestinian “martyrs.” The entire event brought in $155 million. This has led to reasonable allegations that Alwaleed was giving money to the families of suicide bombers, which is very possible. The Saudi government says this isn’t so, and that the “martyrs” were “Palestinians victimized by Israeli terror and violence.” He is also a co-owner of ART TV, a station that aired a fundraiser called, “Jihad in Palestine” that advocated violence.

Alwaleed has spent tens of millions of dollars to spread Saudi influence around the world, especially in the U.S. In many cases, this has benefited the Muslim Brotherhood. In 2002, for example, he donated $500,000 to the Council on American-Islamic Relations for a media campaign to defend Islam. The Islamic Society of North America got $1.5 million for a scholarship program. John Esposito, probably the Muslim Brotherhood’s top non-Muslim advocate, founded Georgetown University’s Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding with his support. Alwaleed’s foundation is run by the daughter of Dr. Abdul-Hamid Abu-Sulayman, called “one of the most important figures in the history of the global Muslim Brotherhood.”

Alwaleed does not disguise the fact that his donations are meant to change minds. He says that Arabs who boycott the U.S. are mistaken because “economic interests” bring more influence. “We have to be logical and understand that the U.S. administration is subject to U.S. public opinion…to bring the decision-maker on your side, you not only have to be active inside the U.S. Congress or the administration but also inside U.S. society,” he said.

In keeping with this strategy, Alwaleed is the second largest shareholder of News Corp., the parent company of Fox News Channel. He has boasted that when he saw Fox describing Muslim riots in France as, well, Muslim riots, he called Rupert Murdoch and had the terminology changed within 30 minutes. News Corp. owns14.5% of Alwaleed’s Rotana media group.

    Mayor Bloomberg is a whore, nothing more, nothing less.

  • al Kidya

    Bloomberg is a Nazi Judenrat that would take payment in the gold fillings of dead Jews to save his own soul.

    • heartsfan

      really? LOL! this is totally unbelievable!

      i think you're nuts.

    • Sabra

      I agree with you, I kid you not. They're all kapos, turning on their own kind. How disgusting.

  • Flipside

    How DARE Arab Americans have their own television stations and give money to Mayor Bloomberg?

    • maturin20

      What next? Telemundo giving money to Jan Brewer?

  • StephenD

    Bloomberg couldn't "man up" to giving back a $10 million dollar donation on principle. As morally suspect as Giuliani may have been in his personal life, he didn't hesitate to do the right thing by his country. This dolt Bloomberg is a stain.

  • umustbkidding

    I wonder if NY Jews are paying attention yet?

    • jacob

      Yes, the same attention they pay to their other Bible, the rotten NY Times, because
      if they would bother to cancel their subscriptions and advertisements, it would die a
      natural death….

      Whichis why they have this piece of work BLOOMBERG is as Mayor….

  • maturin20

    The more reporting, the better.

  • Indioviejo

    Mayor Bloomberg just like Rupert Murdoch did at FNC is taking the easy way out on a matter of conscience and ethics, they both sold out to the highest bidder.

  • sharpsrifle

    Bloomturd would have been bucking for chief kapo at Auschwitz!

  • Zakah

    Bloomberg has millions if not billions invested in Saudi businesses in Muslim countries, he doesn't dare put up a fuss because his assets could be held. Laws over there doesn't work the way laws did here. I won't say "do" because they are getting more and more muddied.

    Can't believe the powers in our government cannot understand the statements, "we want to kill and destroy you" mean. Do they think the Muslims are joking?

  • Piera Prister

    Mayor Bloomberg is also backing the costruction of Cordoba Mosque near Ground Zero, right on the crater of that big hole caused by the September 11 terrorist attack. For New York mayor," Pecunia non olet" (Money does not stinks!).

  • Michael

    Bloomdreck is a CAPO.

    • tanstaafl

      In word and deed.

  • Questions

    What is it with Bloomberg anyway? He starts and grows one of the most successful news organizations in the world and then blows his reputation by transforming New York City, step by step, into a subsidiary of Jihad Inc.

    • sharpsrifle

      He's a self-hating Hebrew In Name Only. The sorry thing is that the jihadis would whack him as fast as they would a Lubavitcher or Hassidim…and Bloomturd is too stupid to grasp that.

      He'd have kissed up to the Nazis, led his people into the ghettoes, been a kapo at one of the death camps, and then been shocked when HE was being taken to the gas chambers! As Ron White has said, "You can't fix stupid," and Bloomturd is showing how stupid he really is.

  • Linda Rivera

    Alwaleed is the second largest shareholder of News Corp​., the parent company of Fox News Channel. He has boasted that when he saw Fox describing Muslim riots in France as Muslim riots, he called Rupert Murdoch​ and had the terminology changed within 30 minutes.

    A most important war strategy in Islam is taqiyya – deception. Saudi oil money is used constantly in the media to hide the VIOLENCE of Islam. Jihad is an obligation in the Koran. Not only are violent perpetrators not identified as Muslims, but violent Muslim attacks on non-Muslims in many countries are not reported by the media.

    When you intend to conquer a country, and eventually the entire world, you must hide the violence and constantly claim, "Islam is a peaceful religion".

  • Linda Rivera

    We will now have cover ups, lies, deception and propaganda 24/7.

    Alwaleed’s response to 9/11: I believe the government of the United States of America should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance toward the Palestinian cause… Our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of Israelis while the world turns the other cheek,”

    I am greatly angered by Alwaleed's statement. More taqiyya – more deception.
    More vile, dirty LIES. More filthy blood libels.
    The IDF are the most ethical military in the world.

    Col. Richard Kemp, a British commander in Bosnia and Afghanistan
    stated: "The Israel Defense Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare. " (Guardian-UK)

    Islam is the only "religion" on earth that blows up people, buildings, planes, trains, buses, restaurants, markets, etc. And attacks and murders little children as at Beslan.

    Financed by the US/EU/UK, global jihadists, Murder Incorporated, Palestinian Authority call for the Murder of All Jews and the Murder of Americans:

    Broadcast from Gaza mosque, Oct 13 2000, Dr. Ahmad Abu Halabiya, on Palestinian Authority TV (transcribed by Memri): "Have no mercy on the Jews, no matter where they are, in any country. Fight them, wherever you are. Wherever you meet them, kill them. Wherever you are, kill those Jews and those Americans who are like them…"

    U.S. leaders must immediately explain to Americans and Jews, why the Palestinian Authority, whose goal is the murder of all Jews and the murder of Americans, are heavily financed, armed, and continually given the most advanced military training by the U.S. and inform Americans how many U.S. trained terrorists are now in America. And explain why U.S. leaders demand that Muslim terrorists are given a terror state inside tiny, vulnerable Israel.

  • Yep, New York City's

    Mayor Bloomberg is in collaboration with an enemy of America, Israel, and the Jews.

  • UCSPanther

    Remember when Bloomberg was making an idiot of himself over gun control and the 2nd amendment a few years back?

  • Debic6

    Bloomberg is an embarrassment to America and Jews
    Bloomberg will be the first one to shove Jews into Microwaves when Obama gives the order.
    Im sure he had kicked off his bedroom slippers and put on his Obama Martin Boots

  • bowzer

    Please help us help you.

  • SoCalMike

    Bloomberg nauseates me.
    He's the type of dhimmi who offers to kitty lick and French kiss jihadis and supremacists in the hope they will like him.
    What a totally despicable excuse for a man.
