The Global Islamic Media Front, an al-Qaeda mouthpiece, issued a special broadcast of their weekly news format video, ?The Voice of the Caliphate,? today, September 28, 2005, concerning the sentencing of Taysir Alluni, an al-Jazeera journalist, by a Spanish court. The video, 1:35 minutes in length, reports on the guilty judgment and seven year prison sentence handed down to Alluni and denounces the way the Spanish ?infidel, crusader courts? ruled against the Muslim journalist. Further, the anchor in the segment extols the method of ?truth and neutrality? by which Taysir Alluni reported and assures the unity with Alluni in his ?calamity and aggression to which he was exposed.?
Taysir Alluni was sentenced by a Madrid court Monday, September 26, 2005, to seven years in prison after a conviction for helping to finance al-Qaeda by acting as a courier for the group during reporting work in Afghanistan.
