The Guardian reports the Israeli government wants to ban Al Jazeera from the country.

“Lately, almost all countries in our region determined that al-Jazeera supports terrorism, supports religious radicalisation,” Kara said. “And when we see that all these countries have determined as fact that al-Jazeera is a tool of the Islamic State, Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran, and we are the only one who have not determined that, then something delusional is happening here,” he said.

Israeli officials have long accused al-Jazeera of bias against the Jewish state. The defense minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has likened its coverage to “Nazi Germany-style” propaganda.
