Israel to Boycott Al-Jazeera TV Over Incitement to Terror (Ha'aretz)
Israel will impose an official embargo of Al-Jazeera television over the Qatar-based station's unfair portrayal of the Israel Defense Forces' operation in Gaza.  Israel says the station incited the Palestinian public and cooperated with Hamas during the latest period of fighting. "The Foreign Ministry has held discussions on the matter, and decided to embargo the station," Deputy Foreign Minister Majali Wahabe told Army Radio, adding: "These reports are untrustworthy and they hurt us, and they arouse people to terrorist activities."
