  • There are two sides of the story. Illegal immigrants can't expect chicken curry everyday. Aljazeera cannot take sides and spice up things in order to sell your story. Worst still is tarnishing the image of the country. When you are not in your own country do not be overly courageous and step on authorities toes. If you want to be Mahatma Gandhi go and report grotesque atrocities by Israelis in Palestine or American killing of innocent millions in the Middle East. Aljazeera is based in Qatar. Have you ever reported that Israel is occupied Palestine.
