This is doubtless going to seem like a simplistic question, but I know close to zip concerning Islamic culture. Given the "death to Zionist American unbelievers" tone of Al Jazeera, shouldn't the target audience be more upset at the (amazingly hot) unveiled female anchors?

Or maybe al-Jazeera really isn't a "BURN THE INFIDELS" kind of channel. I'm not saying that it doesn't lean anti-West, but it's certainly not the Islamic Propaganda Channel that the more right-wing media portrays it as. Quite the contrary in fact; AA has certainly posted enough examples of discussions on a-J that have allowed both "sides" of the coin in the Middle East (the foaming mouthed fundamentalist and the reasonable progressive) to voice their views.

I assume they search the former for explosives before they enter the studio.

(Sorry, bad joke.)
