Palestinian journalist Bassem Barhoum criticizes Qatar's Al-Jazeera for being a biased and populist media network that promotes political Islam and extremist terror organizations, leading to the disintegration of nation-states and the rise of Muslim Brotherhood parties during the Arab Spring. In Palestine, Al-Jazeera has deepened internal division and strengthened Hamas, and its coverage of the Gaza war is biased. Barhoum also points out that Al-Jazeera's massive budget comes from Qatar's former emir who also funded the network, highlighting its agenda-driven approach rather than objective reporting.
