Elderly Israeli killed in Jerusalem terror stabbing

October 23, 2008

As he tried to escape the scene, the terrorist stopped long enough to plunge his knife into the chest of an elderly pedestrian. Emergency resuscitation efforts by ambulance crews failed.

Despite his own wounds, the police officer managed to shoot the attacker several times. Another passerby then overpowered the injured terrorist.   >>>>>

While there is no doubt that stabbing a man in the chest is an act of terror; this short article uses the word terror/terrorist four times to identify a criminal act.  The problem is that the word ‘terror’ or ‘terrorist’ is not typically used by any newspaper around the world for individual crimes against another.  The same newspaper does not report Israeli-on-Arab or Jew-on-Muslim attacks as acts of terror.  This kind of bias only helps to create a further divide of the people and is a dangerous precedent in reporting.

Without realizing it, it has become common place to label anything an Arab or Muslim does, alleged or actual, as an act of terror.  This type of journalism allows for even non-Muslims who are against the Israeli apartheid and global agenda to continue to hold disdain for those Israel considers its ardent enemies – Arabs and Muslims.  Tsk, tsk.

‘Religulous’ not evenhanded in criticisms

October 12, 2008

He’s not quite an equal-opportunity offender. Maher travels to the Wailing Wall but goes awfully easy on the Chosen People (he’s half-Catholic, half-Jewish). He leaves out Hinduism and Buddhism and limits himself to religions with apocalyptic leanings.  >>>>>


Arson probe as Indian Muslim family burned alive

October 12, 2008

Six members of a Muslim family were burned alive Sunday in a fire at their house in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

Police are looking into whether the fire was arson or an accident, because it came two days after deadly ethnic clashes between Hindus and Muslims in the same district.  >>>>>

These are the same group of people that are attacking Christians.  Yet, the Hindo-Israeli agenda is pushing for a more firm and expansive theocratic-nationalism.  How would this bode for the wrongfully labeled Judeo-Christian West?

CAIR: Fox ’24’ Producer Pulls Endorsement of Anti-Muslim Film

October 6, 2008
Another “Obsession” interviewee, Brigitte Gabriel, told the Australian Jewish News: “Every practising Muslim is a radical Muslim.” She also claimed that “Islamo-fascism is a politically-correct word…it’s the vehicle for Islam…Islam is the problem.” When asked whether Americans should “resist Muslims who want to seek political office in this nation,” Gabriel said:
“Absolutely. If a Muslim who has — who is — a practicing Muslim who believes the word of the Koran to be the word of Allah, who abides by Islam, who goes to mosque and prays every Friday, who prays five times a day — this practicing Muslim, who believes in the teachings of the Koran, cannot be a loyal citizen to the United States of America.” >>>>>
