Political Islam As A Media Arm of The Qatari State

The Al-Jazeera network not only revolutionized pan-Arab broadcast media but also became a household name across the world in the aftermath of 9/11, when it aired exclusive interviews with Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. In the more than two decades that have passed, the Qatari TV channel has grown into a multi-channel, multi-language international operation.

The channel serves as a mouthpiece for the Muslim Brotherhood and as the single most significant platform for mainstreaming jihadi ideology. Al-Jazeera has also been accused of maintaining a polarizing editorial policy, which focuses on bashing Qatar’s political and ideological rivals while ignoring the transgressions of Qatar’s regional allies. In addition, Al-Jazeera has been accused of allowing misogynistic, homophobic, and antisemitic content.
