* A recent survey in France revealed that 94 % of French Journo’s are red-hot commie rat-bags. What kind of democracy do you get when your news is cooked by irresponsible maniacs who feed disinformation to the masses?
Germany’s media is no different, the rest of Europe hardly differs.
The same goes for Australia.
The US, a perceived bastion of capitalism surprises:
MSNBC.com identified 144 journalists who made political contributions from 2004 through the start of the 2008 campaign, according to the public records of the Federal Election Commission. Most of the newsroom checkbooks leaned to the left: 125 journalists gave to Democrats and liberal causes. Only 17 gave to Republicans. hat tip Jay
Two gave to both parties. 9 of 10 journalists support the Democrats.
* There is bad, and there is worse, there is the pits and then comes the New York Times
It should come as no surprise that the New York Times elected to give Ahmed Yousef, political adviser to Ismail Haniya, a platform to spew Hamas propaganda. After all, editorial choices like this are what separate the Times from papers that don’t give comfort to the enemy. Last I checked, the U.S. still recognizes Hamas as a terrorist organization. No American media outlet should provide Hamas with the vehicle to express the freedom of speech that Hamas withholds from so many.
It has consistently offered a 10-year cease-fire with the Israelis to try to create an atmosphere of calm in which we resolve our differences. Hamas even adhered to a unilateral cease-fire for 18 months in an effort to normalize the situation on the ground. None of these points appear to have been recognized in the press coverage of the last few days.
At what price the ceasefire? Only Israel’s return to the 1967 borders, the right of return for Palestinians, and the release of prisoners held in Israeli jails. These terms seem very similar to those offered to Israel at the Mecca Accord…for a peace treaty!
And what happens after 10 years?? Peace, love and understanding?
Hamas did not adhere to their ceasefire. Not at all. The fact that they were in power since 2006 and did nothing to prevent hundreds of Qassams being fired from Gaza makes them as culpable as anyone.
The press didn’t cover these “facts” simply because they don’t hold water, and because they pale in comparison to the brutality Hamas has displayed.
Nor has it been evident to many people in the West that the civil unrest in Gaza and the West Bank has been precipitated by the American and Israeli policy of arming elements of the Fatah opposition who want to attack Hamas and force us from office.
As always…blame the Americans and Israelis for you insatiable blood lust. And when the Israelis are no longer in Gaza, the Muslims find cause to kill each other. But hey, its not their fault.
