The Anti Defamation League on Friday expressed “concern” over the impending entry of the Qatari-owned Al Jazeera network to the US television market.

Following the purchase of Current TV by  Al-Jazeera, ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman voiced concern regarding the "troubling record and history" of the Arabic network, citing the "exploitation and exaggeration" of the Arab-Israel conflict "all the while giving all manner of virulent anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic extremists access to its airwaves."

Despite the English version of Al Jazeera "toning down" its anti-Israel propaganda, Foxman said the ADL would be "closely monitoring" the Current TV broadcasts to a potential audience of millions of viewers in the United States.
