Team Mohammed vs. Team Jesus,

Homeland Edition

Posted on 20 August 2010

A principle shareholder of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.(Corpse), the parent company of Fox News, is Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the nephew of Saudi Arabian King Abdullah, and one of the world’s richest men.

Through his Kingdom Holding Co., Alwaleed owns about 7% of News Corp., or about $3 billion of the media giant. He also owns 6% of Citigroup — to which he was introduced by the Carlyle Group — or about $10 billion of the giant bank. He’s a part-owner of the famed Plaza Hotel in New York and has invested in many other prominent companies. (At one point he invested in AOL (AOL), the parent company of DailyFinance.)

Rupert Murdoch & Prince Alwaleed bin Talal

Saudi Arabia, which is ruled by Alwaleed’s uncle King Abdullah, is, of course, an authoritarian petro-monarchy that actually is governed by Sharia law and is known as one of the top global sponsors of terrorism.

Alwaleed, like Imam Rauf, professes a desire to build bridges of peace and understanding between the Islamic world and the West. One man is a multibillionaire, with far-flung investments around the world, and the other is a religious cleric, whose congregation happens to be in downtown Manhattan.

Many Fox News pundits seem to have a big problem with the idea that a foreign government or entity with ties to terrorism could help sponsor a mosque in lower Manhattan — a legitimate concern. But as viewers listen to Fox News pundits rail against Rauf — and question his center’s funding — they should keep in mind that Fox News is part of a company, News Corp., that has extensive business ties with the Muslim world.

It’s just part of running a multinational media giant in today’s global, interconnected economy, where alliances and business relationships are more nuanced than the black and white — good and evil — viewpoint that many Fox News pundits espouse. [ Source ]


So, if Fox News wants to play a game of guilt by association with Imam Rauf, — then we can justifiably conclude that Rupert Murdoch’s has questionable ties to terrorism, and therefore Fox News is a “Terrorist Command Center,” — operated by Roger Ailes and “Osama Bin O’Reilly“.
