Journalists call for release of colleagues in Egypt

February 4th, 2014
06:06 PM ET

Journalists worldwide are demanding the release of Al Jazeera staff detained in Egypt for over a month with the campaign #FreeAJStaff.

The White House has also urged Egypt to release imprisoned journalists and academics. "These figures, regardless of affiliation, should be protected and permitted to do their jobs freely in Egypt," White House spokesman told reporters today.

It's a story we have been covering for weeks, and we will continue to do so.

    These were not fair journalists.
    Al Jazeera is paid by Qatar to serve their islamists agenda.
    Qatar tries to behave as if they are civilized, but they are very active in turning other countries into oppressive islamic extremist states and it seems that the US likes to help them with that.
    Al Jazeera and the US are HATED in Egypt.
    Egypt is a civilized country and does not deserve to be detroyd by islamic extremism.

    Your government is not ready to defend these journalists because the US administration has the first role in the anti-democratic coup in Egypt, politics is a massacre for good principles ! Anyway, I do appreciate your support for free journalism.

    Democracy, won at high cost, is leaching away in Egypt.

    This is not about democracy or free journalism, our very lives here in Egypt are at stake. Al Jazeera has launched a channel: "Aljazeera Egypt" with the sole purpose of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, bashing Egypt and spreading inaccurate and rather hateful and repulsive media. What is really more dangerous to us here in Egypt is that they are in the midst of a campaign that glorifies " martyrs" who kill Egyptians in the name of Islam and "righteousness". They are producing and broadcasting songs promoting what they call " Project Martyr" in which they portray killing oneself and others as a noble cause. Qatar has too much money to know what to do with and these journalists were bought to collaborate with a terrorist organization and they must face justice.

    These are not journalists, they are crisis mongers who helped in setting up the failed 'Spring'.
    Aljazeera headline for news from Egypt starts with 'Egypt in Turmoil' they just recently changed that to 'Egypt in Transition'.
    There is no fair reportage from Aljazeera, their reports are vetted by the Qatari royal family before release which led to the resignation of several of their key staff.
    Aljazeera is owned by Qatar and they promote the MB.
