Israel Shuts Down Al Jazeera for Inciting Violence
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed authorities to shut down Arabic broadcasting outlet Al Jazeera’s Jerusalem-based office following allegations that the network is fomenting violence.
Netanyahu announced Wednesday that he had told Israeli law enforcement to shut down al Jazeera’s offices for “fomenting violence over the Temple Mount,” the Jerusalem-based holy site that has been the scene of Palestinian violence in recent days.
The announcement comes as nations across the region move to shutdown al Jazeera facilities due to the Qatari-funded network’s longstanding efforts to promote violence and terrorism against Israel, Jews, and Arabs.
