Israel to shut Al Jazeera offices and revoke journalists’ credentials

Israel’s communications minister has said he wants to shut down pan-Arab broadcaster Al-Jazeera in the country.  Ayoob Kara, of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, said Sunday he wants the news network’s press cards revoked and has asked cable providers to block their transmissions. He said he wants them banned altogether. No timetable for the measures was given.  Kara said the station is used by militant groups to “incite” violence.
