  Jihad-TV whines about AQ agent, er I mean Al-Jazeera broadcaster being convicted in Spain
Reuters AlertNet - Jazeera condemns conviction of reporter in Spain: "Arab satellite broadcaster Al Jazeera denounced the sentencing of its correspondent in Spain on Monday to seven years in jail on terrorism charges.

Tayseer Alouni, 50, was found guilty by Spain's High Court of collaborating with a terrorist group but acquitted of being a member of al Qaeda. He was among 18 people sentenced at the trial, the biggest of suspected Islamist militants in Europe.

'This is a black day for the Spanish judiciary which has deviated from all the norms of international justice,' Al Jazeera news editor Ahmed al-Sheikh told the station.

'It is a verdict that is based on circumstantial evidence at best. This verdict is a big shock for us. We are convinced of Tayseer's innocence,' he added from Madrid, where he attended the sentencing."
