The Al Jazeera news network and its AJ+ subsidiary have a long history of anti-Semitism.
The network, which pushes Islamic rhetoric in Arabic but has wrapped itself in progressive liberalism in English, is controlled by the royal family of Qatar.
That anti-Semitic history came into renewed focus on May 18, when AJ+ Arabic posted a seven-minute video to social media with the caption “The gas chambers killed millions of Jews … So the story says. How true is the #Holocaust and how did the Zionists benefit from it?”
“People are divided between those who deny the annihilation, others who think that the outcome was exaggerated, and others yet who accuse the Zionist movement of blowing it out of proportion,” it said.
After the Middle Eastern Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated the video from Arabic and called attention to what it said, Al Jazeera put out a statement saying “the video was produced without the due oversight.” The network said that two employees would be disciplined.
