Hilarious Smack-down on Al-Jazeera

Al-Jazeera Mistakenly Hosts Defender of United Jerusalem (has YouTube video)

Al-Jazeera Mistakenly Hosts Defender of United Jerusalem (has YouTube video)

The guest on this show looks like Ben Stein, but he is from the Dept. of Arabic Studies at Bar-Ilan University in Tel Aviv. Al-Jazeera apparently thought this fluent Arab speaker would be sympathetic to the Pale-terrorist cause. Instead, he comes out firing with almost Coulter-like sharpness. It's entertaining to see this Gatling Gun of Truth shoot out so much logic and facts, unheard-of elements on Arab TV, that the A-J host is at a loss for words at times and has to instantly grow new frown muscles to adequately show his displeasure.

The issue of contention is that Israelis are planning to establish homes in their capital city, Jerusalem. Shocking, I know. It's like, Jews in Jerusalem?!! Who has ever heard of such a phenomenon? That's like Catholics in the Vatican! Will pigs fly next?

Now, if our Secretary of State Condaljazeera Rice had been on the show, there would have been lots of smiles and handshakes. The War on Terror exempts Israel's closest enemies.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

It was good for a laugh, to see A-J get their panties in a knot...

They didn't see that coming... I thought the best part was when the guest was talking about Jerusalem being a Jewish city for 3000 years, and the host tried to say that if one wanted to talk history, then they should stick to the Koran. The Guest (correctly) pointed out that Jerusalem isn't even *in* the Koran. (The closest that it comes to being in there is when translators imply Jerusalem by adding it in parenthesis. I don't read Arabic, but I know what it looks like when Jerusalem's written in Arabic, and it's not there.)
