Media Fears

I don't quite understand what the deal is with this kind of thing.

"Mohammad is the Prophet of compassion" And They'll Bomb You To Prove It

I posted this on my blog 6 hours ago. The story is nearly 11 hours old. Yet none of the mainstream British news outlets have said a word on this attack on the British embassy in Iran

Feel free to go read about the attack, but that is not the point of this post.

My point is what is wrong with our Western Media?

They don't seem to have any issue with reporting any perceived mis-hap in regards to Tony Blair or GW Bush, or the fact that The UK and The US are bullies.

But when the other side pulls an obviously hateful terrorist attack on The UK or US, they don't even find it newsworthy.

I find this newsworthy.

The protesters, mostly religious seminary students, chanted "Death to Tony Blair", "Death to Britain" and Death to America" while throwing hundreds of stones at the embassy buildings, smashing many windows.

Blair and Bush have never once said anything like that.

Now I understand that they are world leaders and would never make such a statement, and maybe comparing two world leaders to a group of angry protesters is not fair, but where do you think these Iranian protesters got such ideas?

Could it be from their President, Ahmendinejad?

Pretty much, he has called for Israel to be wiped off the map, and in his most recent speech, he holds strong to the idea of the 'Holocaust Myth'...

As I have said before, as far as several aggressive European governments are concerned, and as far as the Great Satan [the U.S.] is concerned, it is permissible to harm the honor of the divine prophets, but it is a crime to ask questions about the myth of the Holocaust, and about how the false regime occupying Palestine came into being.

You should be grateful that our people has acted nobly towards you so far, and has been patient. We want to remain patient. Don't make us lose our patience. The peoples have awakened. The world of Islam has awakened. Do not make us reconsider our policies.

Oh, now I see where the Iranian protesters get it.

The thing is, why is our mainstream media so afraid to report this stuff?

What can they possibly gain from being gentle on these stories?

Don't they understand that if these fanatics succeed there will be no free press?

On a possitive note, for the thinking people among us, the more Ahmendinejad espouses hate, the more the average Westerner is going to wake up.

The election of Hamas in Palestine, may have been another blessing in disguise.

As Westerners see people in the Mid-East electing and following hate mongers, the more likely they will be to, wake-the-hell-up!

I only hope it doesn't the Average Westerner too long to see it.

Consider, Germany under Hitler was playing 'nice' right up until they were ready to take over the world, or so they thought.

Ahmendinejad, isn't even playing 'nice' and the Western sentiment seems to be to let him go on and on and on and on...

I'll take this chance to remind everyone that we are holding another Blue Scarf meeting at McDonald's on Thursday. I posted a letter from Claude Reichman, the founder of the French Blue Revolution, at and a letter from Sebastien, one of the participants in it.

Personally, I'm not a pacifist. Nor am I inclined to wait for others to act on my behalf when the duty is mine.

Please take a look at Reichman's post and see if you might wish to get involved in something along this line in your community. If so, wear a blue scarf and sit at McDonald's on Thursday and hope for the best. Perhaps this time, maybe next time, someone will join you, and from there you can begin to plan some effectvive resistence to appeasement. Let's not let this slide as badly as it has done in Europe.

Our lives, our choices. If you choose to resist, please leave a notice at nodhimmitude.

Thanks, Dag.

I also wonder what it takes for people to wake up.

More terrorism I am afraid. It is just a matter of time.

Maybe if I had 6 dozen hot chicks waiting for me, and no idea what a woman is I might do something stupid too.

Suppose heaven is Las Vegas with every gal available, and no consequences?

If you are 19 and have no clue.....

How can we get thru to people who accept this as FAITH and the true meaning of God without killing them?

von schlichtningen and epaminondas,

I talked to Pastorius at Infidel Bloggers Alliance about blogrolling you. He said he would get you on there as soon as he could.
