Representatives of Al-Qaeda in Iraq has accused Al-Jazeera of trying to win U.S. favor by reporting false information against them in an internet posted statement. The misinformation is related to a bombing outside a mosque in Balad Ruz, Iraq. Al-Jazeera suggested the mosque was the target, but Zarqawi's group claimed a National Guard convoy was the target instead. Al-Jazeera denies the allegations
"After we posted a statement (claiming responsibility) . . . we found that Al-Jazeera tried to alter the facts and attributed to us (something) we didn't say," said the statement that appeared on an Internet site used as a clearing house for extremist Islamic material.

"We didn't say in our statement that we targeted the mosque, but that we targeted the infidel guards, and we hit them directly."

It also accused Qatar-based Al-Jazeera of falsifying the report in a bid to "flatter the Americans" and interim Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi's government.

U.S. officials have been critical of Al-Jazeera's coverage of the war in Iraq, and Iraq's interim government closed the station's offices in August after accusing it of inciting violence.

What a strange turn of events, poor Al-Jazeera is getting it from all angles. But as for the criticism, I think Al-Qaeda is probably having to rethink its strategy, it probably doesn't want to offend the #e clerics, now that they have more power in the country.

Maybe if some al-jazzera journalists get kinapped and have their heads ripped out the media outlet might rethink who its aggrandizes.

I think that Al-queda is kind of touchy about how the news are served to the public, they don't want their image tarnish and to portray that they are not respecting their places of Islamic worship.

They "do not target mosque" the target "infidels in the mosque"
