    Netanyahu considers closing Al-Jazeera Israel amid Qatar spat

    Israeli defense minister says channel is 'in the style of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia'

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering closing the Jerusalem bureau of the Qatar-based Arabic media outlet Al-Jazeera, the Yedioth Ahronoth Hebrew media outlet reported on Tuesday.

    Netanyahu met with members of the Foreign Ministry, Shin Bet security service, Government Press Office and the Defense Ministry on Monday where they discussed preliminary steps for shutting the bureau down, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

    The possible closure was reportedly discussed at a Knesset meeting on Israel's strategies towards the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, which is heavily reliant on Qatari funding for support, in which Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman waded into a diplomatic spat between Qatar and Gulf Arab nations, slamming the Doha-based Al-Jazeera news service as an "incitement machine" which peddles propaganda "in the style of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia."

    "Al-Jazeera is not media, it’s not journalism. It’s an incitement machine. It’s pure propaganda, of the worst variety, in the style of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia," Lieberman said.

    You can easily get agreement between a pig and a cow that wolves are bad, but they can easily fall into the trap where the pig says
    wolves should eat more beef, while the cow recommends a diet of pork.
