Inside Story

Dissecting the day’s top story – a frank assessment of the latest developments.


Inside Story provides analysis, background, and context on the day’s top story from some of the best minds in the Middle East and around the world.

More than just the news, Inside Story asks how we got to today and what tomorrow might have in store.
The programme will draw on Al Jazeera’s heritage of covering the Middle East and world events.
From the latest developments in the Palestinian occupied territories to the wider issue of relations between the West and the Middle East, Inside Story aims to get behind the headlines, analyse the facts and hear the opinions to try and provide a frank assessment of the latest developments.

Coming up on Inside Story:

Europe’s Muslims

Historian and Western scholar Bernard Lewis says Islam will soon be the dominant religion in Western Europe.  The continent is already struggling to cope with its multicultural make-up.  The issue of national identity is increasingly being raised and community leaders are divided on how to react – or if they even need to. 


Will Europe become Islamised or will Islam become Europeanised?  Can the two cultures co-exist?

I saw the subject about Iraq’s oil industry and to be honest I would say that it was outstanding and you highlighted in the smallest details all my suspicious about the reason why America and Britain wanted to invade Iraq.

I watched your Inside Story for the first time on Aljazeera. It was very good! It was neutral … I think both CNN & BBC supports Sri Lanka’s propaganda machine. I like your work.

I would like to comment on what was said on this terrible conflict in Sri Lanka.  We know in Europe that LTTE is not a terrorist group despite all propaganda in the media. Al Jazeera has done a good job in documenting this issue, very similar to the Palestinian one.

Why did Inside Story forget to bring a guest from the Tamil speaking muslim community? The community was heavily victimized by the Tamil Tiger rebels. I am requesting you remember this in the next Inside Story.

Your interactive program Inside Story on Sri Lanka was one of the best impartial interview & reports I have ever witnessed on any news channel. Without doubt Aljazeera has demonstrated the impartiality & has left all other international news channels far behind.

Hi Aljazeera, I am a great fan and supporter of your channel but i didnt like the way you covered the assassination of Pierre Gemayel. First i dont think that his killing is anything but horrific. But i think that your coverage was shy in pointing fingers to anybody but Syria. I mean 90% of people in the Middle East if not more believe that the US and Israel have something deep to do with these assassinations. And i dont think that this a paranoid or “conspiracy” form of thinking. I know that as a news channel u cant accuse anybody of something without evidence but to cover “Every Angle and Every Side” i think that this side should be highlighted in a way or another

Something I don’t get? Why no-one is putting the fingerpoint on Al Hariri for this killing for Mr Gemayel. Even we know that he has more to gain than anyone else in this incident to prove his point on Syria.
I think the debate/discussion over politicizing the hijab was informative. I really like the professor from Egypt’s comments and her views on the issue. Personally, I feel the hijab/niqab has become politicised by politicians first in Europe and now in the Middle East as more and more educated, capable, talented, young women who are entering the work force making conscious decision to either don the hijab or niqab

Just got the English Aljazeera feed (through tonight and saw the segment on human shields in Gaza. Thank you very much – this is exactly the kind of news we in America have been missing, and urgently need to see.
