Al-Qaeda: the new friend of the British media

Everyone is familiar with the phrase “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. It will come as no surprise therefore to hear that the new darling of the British media is Al-Qaeda. Since the very start of Israel’s action against Hizbullah the papers (and the BBC) have lined up to take shots at our great ally in their struggle against Islamofacism. As one would expect very little is said about the hundreds of rockets that fly from southern Lebanon into the very heart of the Middle-East’s only liberal democracy. Now that Al-Qaeda has waded into the conflict we can be in no doubt who the liberal media will champion (albeit subtly).

We cannot just watch these shells as they pour wrath on our brothers in Gaza and Lebanon and sit back in submission”; one could be forgiven for wondering whether these words came from the Independent or Al Qaeda. They were in fact uttered yesterday by al-Zawahiri, right-hand man to Bin Laden, in a video released on al-Jazeera. However we can be sure it will not be long before the liberal media repeats similar phrases of its own creation.
