The New Egyptian Government is Sending a Clear Signal to Al-Jazeera TV....BACK OFF!

....Quit fanning the flames for those who oppose stability in Egypt...

Egypt arrests 4-member crew of Al-Jazeera TV, accuses them of 'harming national security'
Egypt's Interior Ministry says security forces have arrested journalists working for the Qatari-based Al-Jazeera network over alleged links to the Muslim Brotherhood, the leading Islamist group that was last week branded as a "terrorist" organization. 
The network said Monday that four of its Cairo team — correspondent Peter Greste, producers Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, and cameraman Mohamed Fawzy — are in custody since Sunday night.

Why Al Jazeera?.....History!
.....It has aired round-the-clock coverage of the pro-Morsi protest movement, hard-hitting testimony from survivors of the Rabaa massacre in which hundreds of Brotherhood supporters were killed, and exclusive interviews with the handful of Islamist leaders who have managed to escape the ongoing security crackdown, such as at the start of this month with al-Gamaa al-Islamiya leader Assem Abdel-Maged. 
During the Hosni Mubarak era, the information ministry used a variety of ingenious methods to try to silence Al-Jazeera, including preventing it from using Egyptian government studios, blocking its satellite feed, detaining its correspondents and forcibly deporting its family members. 
Despite this, in January 2011 Al-Jazeera was viewed by many as playing a leading role in fomenting the unrest that led to the toppling of President Mubarak. (emphasis mine)

Al-Jazeera being persecuted...NO TEARS from me..

History shows they were Pro-Muslim Brotherhood and instigators in much of the turmoil that's going on in Egypt.

Many believe They were instrumental in ousting Mubarak.

General El-Sisi isn't about to let history repeat itself.

A stable Egypt is more important now than letting and anti-government news outlet run amok..
