English Al-Jazeera Channel's Editor-in-Chief Demonstrates Personal Irrationality Against Israel

Here’s an interview with Al-Jazeera Editor-in-Chief Ahmed Sheikh, demonstrating why this mouthpiece for the global jihad should never be allowed to spread its propaganda in the United States. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the irrational, obsessive hatred of Jews that drives the Arab-Muslim victimhood mentality.

Q: Who is responsible for the situation?
A: The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the most important reasons why these crises and problems continue to simmer. The day when Israel was founded created the basis for our problems. The West should finally come to understand this. Everything would be much calmer if the Palestinians were given their rights.

Q: Do you mean to say that if Israel did not exist, there would suddenly be democracy in Egypt, that the schools in Morocco would be better, that the public clinics in Jordan would function better?
A: I think so.

Q: Can you please explain to me what the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has to do with these problems?
A: The Palestinian cause is central for Arab thinking.

Q: In the end, is it a matter of feelings of self-esteem?
A: Exactly. It’s because we always lose to Israel. It gnaws at the people in the Middle East that such a small country as Israel, with only about 7 million inhabitants, can defeat the Arab nation with its 350 million. That hurts our collective ego. The Palestinian problem is in the genes of every Arab. The West’s problem is that it does not understand this.

Q: Mr. Sheikh, as the Editor in Chief of Al-Jazeera, you are one of the most important opinion-makers in the Arab world. What do you call suicide bombers?
A: For what is happening in Palestine, we never use the expression “suicide bombing.”

Q: What do you call it then?
A: In English, I would describe it as “bombings.”

Q: And in Arabic?
A: Literally translated, we would speak of “commando attacks.” In our culture, it is precisely not suicide.

Q: But instead a praiseworthy act?
A: When the country is occupied and the people are being killed by the enemy, everyone must take action, even if he sacrifices himself in so doing.

Q: Even if in so doing he kills innocent civilians?
A: That is not a Palestinian problem, but a problem of the Israelis.
