“[Anas] Fouda, previously an executive producer at Al Jazeera Arabic (AJA), is managing the [new HuffPo Arabic] website in partnership with his old boss, former AJA director general Wadah Khanfar… Khanfar is the man who made Al Jazeera the Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece that it is today.”
Muslim Brotherhood and Islamist forces continue spreading their tentacles of influence into and with the aid of American liberal partners.
A Lebanese news portal is reporting on the Muslim Brotherhood connections of Huffington Post’s new Arabic language edition. The NOW report begins:
July 29, 2015 ‘Don’t be shocked if you expect one thing and find something entirely different,’ writes Anas Fouda, editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post’s brand new Arabic-language edition, HuffPost Arabi, in his inaugural editorial.
The warning is apt, for presumably few readers indeed will have expected the liberal American media juggernaut to launch a venture headed by two prominent figures of the Middle East’s religious right.
Fouda, previously an executive producer at Al Jazeera Arabic (AJA), is managing the website in partnership with his old boss, former AJA director general Wadah Khanfar. Their profiles may make for interesting perusal for existing Huffington Post readers unfamiliar with the Arabic-language media landscape.
