Al Jazeera Mobasher?[edit]

What is Al Jazeera Mobasher? Is is the same as Al Jazeera Live? What does "Mobasher" mean, anyway? I have googled, to no avail. Thanks for any help. :) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.56.48.12 (talk)

Yes. Mobasher means live(broadcast) in Arabic. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mohi (talkcontribs).

== Controversies Section, Israel subsection... This bit - "On the 2008 release in an Israel-Hezbollah deal of Samir Kuntar, who had murdered two Israelis in 1979 including a 4-year-old girl, Al Jazeera Arabic threw him a party: "Brother Samir, we wish to celebrate your birthday with you," crowed the station's Beirut bureau chief, hailing Kuntar as a "pan-Arab hero."[11][129]" [11] links here - http:||www.meforum.org|3147|al-jazeera . The source of the claim is from a news article on memritv.org, well known for bias and unreliability. [129] links to an unsubstantiated claim in the Washington Post with no references or links given except to a search page within the site, and the only video available to verify the claim is the one translated by memritv.org. Have refrained from removing because I don't know the policy regarding what constitutes an acceptable source, but in the interests of objectivity and reliability, I hope someone will take a look with a view to making potential edits. Thank you.

I agree that memritv.org is unreliable, but this story was also covered by Haaretz and The Jerusalem Post. Haaretz - https://www.haaretz.com/news/al-jazeera-apologizes-for-unethical-coverage-of-kuntar-release-1.251249 The Jerusalem Post - http://www.jpost.com/Israel/GPO-to-sanction-Al-Jazeera-over-Kuntar-party .The removed section should probably be replaced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by [Special:Contributions/220.233.173.236|220.233.173.236]] (talk) 04:03, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
