Rep.
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Representative:

Dr. Judea Pearl, the father of murdered journalist Daniel Pearl, wrote a January 18 New York Times column pointing out that Al-Jazeera regularly broadcasts inflammatory statements by the notorious Sheikh Qaradawi that promote the killing of innocent people. Yet its sister channel, Al-Jazeera English, has been permitted to operate in the U.S. (it has offices on K Street, NW in Washington, D.C.) and it is still trying to gain access to U.S. cable and satellite systems. I ask that you call for a federal probe into Al-Jazeera and its ties to terrorists before this channel gets more established on U.S. soil.
