BBC show Spooks prepares to screen REAL waterboarding torture scenes

October 27, 2008

The BBC are preparing to screen scenes of an actor being subjected to a controversial form of torture – waterboarding. The scenes, starring actor Richard Armitage, will be shown during the new series of popular show Spooks, which starts tonight.  >>>>>

Just adding to the further desensitization of the public toward waterboarding and torturing of people not considered American, or are deemed a threat to the U.S.


Egyptians Challenge BBC Al-Qaida Poll Result

October 4, 2008

Despite this evidence, Egyptians simply are not buying it. Many here argue that these surveys often skew actual evidence to the contrary.

“Egyptians do not understand what al-Qaida truly is,” began a freelance journalist who asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the subject matter, “so when someone asks people here how they view the organization many will indeed say they support or view them favorably.”

The journalist believed this is due to a lack of information. For example, she talked about how it was not until watching a large amount of Western news sources – including CNN and the BBC – did she become aware of the full intentions of the terror network.  >>>>>

In other words, it is not that the journalist is unaware of reality, it’s just that the journalist here had not been brainwashed about al-Qaeda until watching CNN and BBC.  Many people have a different take on al-Qaeda because the news in the Middle East happens to be a lot less editorialized and inclusive of fantasy and fiction.

There is a lot more objectivity and accountability for what one rights.  The people of these lands have far less exposure to news such as the Western addiction to 24-hour-a-day, 7-days-a-week, up-to-date news viewing and commentary.

Even CNN and CNN International do not cover the same things, nor do they cover the same news item the same way. The Westerners believe that they have better news coverage than anything else in the world; but other news organizations around the world would probably say something to the effect that “‘frame-for-frame’, and ‘reel-for real,’ they are far better because there is more objective news whereby journalists are more accountable.  Heck, most major news sources can point to their adversary and show how ‘they are not real news sources,’ for a host of reasons.

The people around the world are paying attention to the differences, quality and content of information they are getting.

Incidentally, Egyptians are Arabs, and therefore, includes a great amount of Christians as well, all living in a secular, not religious society.  Many Westerners fail to recognize this point, as they fail to recognize that the largest religious group of Arabs in the U.S. are Christian, and not Muslim.  This poll includes Christians is my point. (In case readers point to ‘those people’ would naturally support al-Qaeda.

BBC favours Muslims, complain Hindus and Sikhs

September 8, 2008

Sikh and Hindu leaders have complained that a disproportionate number of programmes have been made about Islam, at the expense of programmes on their own faiths.

An analysis of programmes from the BBC’s Religion and Ethics department claims that since 2001, the BBC has made 41 programmes on Islam, five on Hinduism and one on Sikhism.  >>>>>

Maybe it is because Muslims are pushing the unjust anti-hate messages to offset the other programming that demonizes them.  The learning about Muslims is in place, yet the overwhelming majority of non-Muslims still harbor ill feelings and ignorantly believe (by design) that Muslims are responsible for global atrocities today.

It is difficult to believe that Hindu and Sikh groups woke up one day, collaborated and stated, “Hey, we aren’t getting that much attention.  Let’s blame the Muslims.”  This complaint(s) by them appears to be more of an instigative move by those who want less of the ‘positive’ message about Islam to be shown.

BBC Hit Piece Edits Silverstein Comment In Dirty Tricks Scam

July 24, 2008

The BBC’s embarrassing attempt to dig itself out of a hole that keeps getting deeper was again exemplified during their latest yellow journalism hit piece on 9/11 truth, in which they played Larry Silverstein’s “pull it” comment but edited out the most important part of the statement, and in doing so changed its context altogether.

An army of informed truth activists are almost tripping over each other to point out the gargantuan number of errors, ad hominem smear tactics, bias and shoddy investigative techniques displayed in the program which aired Sunday in the UK. Read entire article

This man makes billions off the tragedy; the media protects him.  If his last name were ‘Obama’ for example, would he not have been at Guantanamo by now?
