(Please note when this was written: 6 years ago! And yet, it reads like it was written yesterday: The same perps and the same BS day after day. Her current presentation on CNN is no better than the nonsense she peddled way back then!)
Before and after Sept. 11, 2001, the most prominent television anchor, journalist and authority on Islam and the Islamic world was CNN’s chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour, who was born and grew up in an Islamic country, Iran.
Thus, as a native of an Islamic country and assisted by Moslem professors of Islam and Islamic clerics she hosted, she explained that the very word “Islam” means “Peace” in Arabic, and this is what the Koran is all about.
Hence the 19 terrorists of Sept. 11, 2001 â€“ or rather bin Laden and al-Qaeda, who allegedly control these terrorists as their “operatives” â€“ were the enemies of Islam – Peace – which distorted its meaning into its opposite: The worst kind of aggressive war â€“ terrorist attacks to kill innocent civilians.
That the word “Islam” means “Peace” was reiterated in unison by all American (and one Canadian) Moslem professors of Islam and Islamic clerics in the American mainstream media, following Sept. 11, 2001.
When Soviet Russia was viewed as a military threat, nearly all “sovietologists” were born Americans, since who could be sure that a former Soviet Russian was not a KGB agent? On the other hand, as of Sept. 11, 2001, nearly all “islamists” were born Moslems, since for an American it is far more difficult to learn Arabic than Russian, a foreign yet Indo-European language, just like French or German.
Naturally, after Sept. 11, 2001, the Moslems in the United States felt defensive and began to assure the Americans that the word “Islam” means “Peace.” The result was the concerted Islamic propaganda of Islam as Peace versus its enemies like bin Laden.
Thus, when a Washington Times columnist quoted on Oct. 3, 2001, historian Paul Johnson to the effect that the “word ‘Islam’ does not mean ‘peace,’ but ‘submission,'” the “Moslem scholar” Saleh A. Mubarak declared in a letter published in the newspaper three days later, “I don’t know historian Paul Johnson …” and the moral: “Don’t ask a historian, ask a Moslem scholar.”
She keeps doing it. It has reached the point where the viewer feels more & more embarrassed watching. Doesn’t she feel awkward presenting and displaying her stupidity? She did it before, she didn’t learn what she should have learned. Its painful to watch, but she keeps doing it. Why?
Is she in the Arab pocket also?
While I’m posting this I am listening to her BS on CNN. Of course there is always the equally clueless Jonathan Mann.
More later. For now just this:
