Hamas Soldiers Saluting (Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood)

COMMENT: With the Middle East boiling over and the latest installment of predictable Hamas/Israeli bloodletting proceeding apace, it is depressing (though not surprising) to see The Huffington Post launch an Arab Language edition edited by a former Al-Jazeera “journalist.”

Deeply connected [3] to the Muslim Brotherhood [4], Al-Jazeera’s ascension as a supposedly credible [5] media outlet marks another step in the realization of Serpent’s Walk.

“Huffington Post Teaming with Former Al-Jazeera Head to Launch Arab Language Edition; Waddah Kanfar Long Tied to Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood”; Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch; 8/6/2014. [6]

The Huffington Post is teaming up with the former head of Al Jazeera to launch an Arabic-language edition targeting a fast-growing population of mobile-connected Middle Eastern youth. . . .

. . . Like most of its international sites, the Arabic edition is a partnership between Huffington Post, which provides its platform, and a local media group. Stories and video will be produced by local correspondents trained by Integral Media Strategies, a digital news start-up founded by Wadah Khanfar, former director-general of Qatar-based Al Jazeera. . . .

. . . . Ms. Huffington’s comments about being “completely independent”, partly attributed to the London location, strike us as highly ironic given that Mr. Khanfar has long been tied to Hamas and the Global Muslim Brotherhood. . . .

. . . In 1997, Khanfar became the Al Jazeera correspondent in South Africa. However, while living in South Africa, Khanfar was also was the Director [7] of Human Resource Development for the International Islamic Federation of Student Organizations [8] (IIFSO), an organization closely tied to the global Muslim Brotherhood. A memo [9] purporting to be a 1998 briefing document prepared for the South African President Thabo Mbeki has long been posted on the Internet and describes the IIFSO as working closely with Hamas . . .
