Abe Foxman, the well-known expert on Arabic language and culture comments on Aljazeera

""Al-Jazeera has a troubling record and history that is very disturbing, particularly in its Arabic language broadcasts," said Abe Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement from the organization on Friday.
"It has exploited and exaggerated the Arab-Israel conflict in a heavy-handed and propagandistic manner, and always at the expense of Israel, while giving all manner of virulent anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic extremists access to its airwaves."
Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents, agreed.
"Their general coverage has served to destabilize regimes and favour some of the more extremist elements in the Arab world," he said." (thanks AK)
