So the money to buy Al Gore's TV business came from the sale of hydrocarbons, which when burned emit CO2 gas into the atmosphere.

I consider CO2 gas to be a benign, helpful gas and not really anything to worry about, however, I believe Al has promoted the production, sale and burning of hydrocarbons and the resulting CO2 gas as something evil.

What you can expect from Current TV now. Not that I will ever watch this stuff.


Al Jazeera’s veteran televangelist has waged similar crusades on music, dancing, mother’s milk and just about anything under the sun that he believes sharia-law should address. Islamic scholar Dr. Andrew Bostom provided TheBlaze with a small cross-section of additional positions held by the rabidly anti-Semitic imam:

•That Muslims emulate their prophet Muhammad as a model for violent, expansionist jihad, which includes the sanctioning of so-called jihad “martyrdom operations”
•The re-creation of a formal transnational United Islamic State (Islamic Caliphate)
•The jihad conquests of Europe and the Americas
•Universal application of the sharia, including Islamic blasphemy law and hudud (Islamic term for sharia-driven punishments). This includes executing so-called “apostates.”
•Homicide “martyrdom” bombings of all Israeli Jews, including non-combatants, and subsequently, invoking Hitler and expanding the circle of hatred, a call for jihad-genocide of all Jews

Qaradawi, who also serves as president of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, has penned more than a 120 books and doctrines in addition to his countless fatwas, making his website and indeed, weekly Al Jazeera program, a kind of “one-stop-shop” for Muslims seeking dogma that will support their respective crusades.

Al Jazeera is as anti US as any middle eastern jihad group.

Al Gore is a trader to his country in my opinion.
Anything for money.
Be without fear in the face of your enemies.
Stand brave and upright that the Lord may love thee.
Speak the truth always even if it means your death.
Protect the helpless and do no wrong!

Beiruty is another of the good guys here.

I think his point is well taken.

If you prefer to be xenophobic, you're short changing yourself.

The world is made up of more than just Texas (or the U.S.A. for that matter...) and I know others here (like me) have lived outside the U.S.A. and appreciate it's complexities.

To remain willfully ignorant isn't in our best interest...

They thought his name was Al-Gore.

I understand that one of the requirements of the sale is that the channel will be known as AlGorezeera.

ust call him Al Gorezeera.

Yesterday morning, the still shell shocked staff at Current TV was called to an all hands staff meeting at its San Francisco headquarters, which was teleconferenced to their offices in LA and NYC, to meet their new bosses.

That would be two of Al Jazeera’s top guys: Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, general manager of the London bureau.

Ominously missing was the creator of Current, the self proclaimed inventor of the Internet and savior of clean energy, Al Gore, although his partner, Joel Hyatt, stood proudly with the Al Jazeera honchos.

“Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility.

“He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bulls***ter sells to the emir?”
