American Revolutionary War Museum to Honor Al-Jazeera

The General Henry Knox Museum is honoring a representative of Al-Jazeera, the channel associated with various terrorist organizations, on July 28 on the stage of The Strand Theatre in Rockland, Maine. The museum says that an intimate Gala dinner and reception will follow at 7:30 p.m. at Camden National Bank’s historic Spear Block location in Rockland.

Knox played a significant role in the American war for independence from Britain and was close to General George Washington.


The idea of an American museum devoted to patriotism honoring a representative of a foreign-funded channel, described by Middle East experts such as Walid Phares as “Jihad television,” is not going down well in Maine and across the country. The most visible public face of Al-Jazeera Arabic is the anti-Semitic cleric, Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who approved suicide bombings against Israeli civilians and American military personnel in Iraq.

“Oh Allah” he preached in January 2009 to millions of Al-Jazeera listeners, “count their numbers [the Jews], and kill them down to the very last one.”


Dr. Judea Pearl said he once thought that Al-Jazeera could be a force for good in the world but came to believe otherwise, based on its track record in promoting anti-American and anti-Jewish propaganda. He has also warned of the expanding influence of Al-Jazeera English. “Even if Al-Jazeera English waters down its sister network’s alarmist content, it should still be seen as a potential threat,” he says. “It will bestow respectability upon the practices of its Arabic language network in Qatar, which continues, among other things, to broadcast Sheik Qaradawi’s teachings, frequently, consistently and prominently.” Dr. Pearl’s son, journalist Daniel Pearl, was murdered by Al-Qaeda.


The grass-roots organization, Act for America, headed by Brigitte Gabriel, is mobilizing to oppose the appearance of Abderrahim Foukara, the Washington Bureau Chief of Al-Jazeera, at the event in Maine.

Gabriel is the author of two New York Times best sellers,Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America, and They Must Be Stopped: Why we must defeat radical Islam and how we can do it. The recent Act for America conference in Washington, D.C. attracted hundreds of activists and featured speeches by such figures as Rep. Allen West, one of the most forceful advocates of resistance to the global jihad.


An Act for America chapter leader in Maine, who didn’t want her name used publicly for fear of retribution from radical Muslims in the area, told Accuracy in Media that…

Martie Smith – You’re right that no one prays to al Jazeera anymore than they pray to CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC or Fox, but al Jazeera is an anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish voice from the Arab world that would gladly see America and Israel, including every Christian, every Jew and ever pro-westerner exterminated from the face of planet earth – and to say anything else is a complete fabrication of anything close to the truth. As far as saying that the mainstream media in the USA is partisan, you’re right about that. However, they are so far to the left that they fell off the mountain top long ago into the abyss of far left communism, fascism, Nazism and since 9-11 making nicey-nicey with the Muslims who want to behead us! The mainstream media have utterly sold out to the George Soros’s of the world and to giant evil corporations like General Electric who have an anti-Christian, anti-Judeo, left-winged socialist-communist agenda that includes one-world government for a Satanic, anti-Christ to rule. That’s why Christians and any other people who still have any common sense left have come to the Internet to find their news from sources like this “Watchwoman on the Wall” blog. U.S. standards are indeed, at an all time low because they have abandoned the Only Standard of Truth” – the Christian Holy Bible (King James Version). America has abandoned their First Love, Jesus Christ. [Mark 12:30] “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” [1 John 4:19] “We love him, because he first loved us.” [Revelation 2:4] “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.” Until we return to our First Love, Jesus Christ, we will suffer the consequences of God giving us Christ-hating tyrants for presidents and idiots in Congress who pass legislation that removes Jesus Christ from the public forum and honors those that want to kill us! God save America because she is going downhill fast! Like Alexis de Tocqueville said, “America is great because America is good,” – but that is changing quickly because the evildoers have risen from murdering cops and blowing up police stations to college professors (like Bill Ayres and his kind) and our learning institutions have changed from pro-U.S. Constitutional teachers of righteousness to hell-bent brainwashing centers of indoctrination stealing the minds of our progeny. God save us from idiots! In Jesus name, we always and only pray! Amen!

No one PRAYS to al Jazerra….it is a news organization on par with the BBC, because it reports the facts, gives air time to sharply contrasting voices and does not pretend to be pro-Israel, pro-U.S., pro-Arab or Islam.

Al Jazerra adheres to good journalist principles. It reports news, as U.S. news organizations used to do. However, in the cable era, news has become a ratings race. The more partisan, or more biased the presentation of what is happening in the world, the higher the ratings and viewer loyalty climbs.

U.S. news standards are at an all time low. Viewers in the U.S. tune in to hear their biased/bigoted beliefs validated, and to be entertained by the shrillest voice promoting their views.

Anyone may read al-Jazeers English online. When you read it, you may not like it, because it is impartial…their reporting frequently reports news that is not what the U.S. or Israel wants people to know.

I suppose that the reasoning behind this honoring is that when the colonists rose up in arms they were considered terrorists. But the Jews actually help the colonies to gain their independence. They also were praised for their efforts by George Washington. Why in the world would someone want to honor a group that actually prays for the destruction of a people who helped us gain our independence from Britain? When Al-Jazerra prays this way they are not praying to the God of Abraham. They are praying to Satan.
