Once again, al Jazeera wimps out on showing one of its Islamist affiliate's propaganda films. This one features Margaret Hassan, whose slaughter the Islamists think a triumph.

Since al Jazeera has a policy of showing the snuff pics produced by its associates, this decision can only be interpreted as censorship, and as censorship in the interests of its friends, not of its viewers.

Six years soft detention is the reward for taking part in mass-murder in Spain. Expect more of the same.
