The Media's Nauseating Approach to Terror Reporting
by Seton Motley March 7, 2008 - 15:25 ET
There is a push by the Jurassic Press -- in two directions at once -- to frame just-so their presentation of the murder and murderers engaged in the attempted global implementation of political Islam.
One such shove was again demonstrated by the New York Times this past February 13th. The Media attempt to present these bits of human flotsam -- and their family members and friends -- in the most sympathetic of possible lights. The Times portrayal of the mourning father and grandfather of recently rubbed out Hezbollah serial assassin Imad Mugniyah -- responsible for amongst many other atrocities the 1983 bombing of the Marine Corps barracks in Beirut (American death count 241) is nothing more than another attempt to humanize these inhuman creatures.
The other Press effort underway is the minimization of the evil of these acts and actors. There is even a feel to some of these reports that those delivering them almost do not wish to have to do so, but are forced to by circumstances and forces (the Internet, anyone?) beyond their control.
Key facts that would exhibit the depths of barbarism mined by these men (and women and, sadly, their bloodletting-by-proxy children) are left out.
Radical Left Declares War On Troops
March 2003. Ithaca, NY anti-war zealots plot to pour blood on the walls of a recruiting center. On St.Patrick’s Day, wielding cups of their own blood, they entered a Lansing military recruitment office and splashed the human blood over recruiting posters,military cutouts and the American flag.
January 20, 2005. At Seattle Central Community College, Army recruiter Sgt. Jeff Due and hiscolleague, Sgt. 1st Class Douglas Washington were surrounded by an angry mob of 500 anti-war students. The recruiters’ table was destroyed; their handoutstorn apart. The protesters threw water bottles and newspapers at the soldiers…
Feb. 1, 2005. At a South Toledo, Ohio recruitment center, unhinged protesters hurled manure all over the building. They broke windows and sprayed vulgar grafitti … on office property.
Mid-Feb. 2005. 20-year-old anti-war goon Brendan Walsh is sentenced to five years in federal prison for hurling a Molotov cocktail through the window of a Vestal, NY military recruitment office in 2003.
Jan. 2007. Anti-war radicals lay siege to the US Capitol and smash windows at the recruitment center on 14th and L. [In] Pittsburgh anti-recruiter organizers shut down a military recruitment station for a whole day. They brandish hateful signs [reading]: “Recruiters are child predators.”
Jan. 2008. The Code Pink/City Council siege at the Berkeley recruiting center reaches a boiling point. Protesters chain themselves to the station to shut it down and vandalize the windows with bloody handprints.
Feb. 2008. Anarchists trash the recruiting station at 14th and L in Washington, D.C., which has been subjected to multiple attacks.
March 2008. A bomb goes off at the frequently targeted Times Square recruitment center.
Hamas Runs For Cover
Israel has declared war on the Hamas leadership, and given the security services permission to do whatever they can to wipe out the Hamas officials involved in attacks on Israel. In (unofficial) cooperation with Fatah, which has the support of half, or more, of the Gaza population, Israel hopes to destroy Hamas in a few months. Fatah publicly condemns Israeli attacks on Hamas, but privately takes advantage of it by taking control of more neighborhoods in Gaza. Fatah support provides Israel with more information on who Hamas leaders are, where they are and when. This has led to more frequent missile attacks, leaving over a dozen Hamas leaders dead in the last two weeks. There have also been more Israeli raids on the ground, and more Hamas personnel captured. The Hamas leadership consists of several hundred men, most of them known by name to the Israelis. If most of these guys feel they are likely to get killed, or captured, in the near future, this will have a demoralizing effect on Hamas as a whole.
Now Hamas wants to discuss a ceasefire with Israel. Hamas has an Israeli soldier it took in 2006, and is willing to trade him for some kind of arrangement that would end the economic blockade. But Israel will insist on the Kassam rocket attacks stopping, and Hamas may not be able to stop all the terrorist factions involved in that. But at least Hamas is willing to talk about what it can, and cannot, do.
Hizbollah, enraged at the death of their terrorism leader, Imad Mughnieh, has "declared war" on Israel. This puts Hizbollah in a difficult position. To make another rocket attack, like it did in 2006, would mean fighting UN peacekeepers now in southern Lebanon. Mindful of that. Hizbollah says it will go after Israeli leaders. But since Arab suicide bombers have been defeated by Israeli counter-terror tactics, Hizbollah will have to come up with some new tactics and techniques first.
Imad Mughnieh, a senior Hizbollah terrorist commander, was killed by a car bomb in Syria. Israel was blamed. The CIA and Mossad have been trying to capture or kill Mughnieh for over 25 years. The Mossad has been more successful of late, being blamed for the death of at least six senior terrorist leaders in the last eight years. Mossad rarely acknowledges a kill, but they appear to have a powerful agent network in Lebanon and Syria.
Egyptian public opinion has become more hostile towards Hamas, mainly because of the way the Gaza border was torn down, and Egyptian border guards attacked. Hamas is also seen as supporting Islamic terrorists who seek to make attacks inside Egypt. As a result of all this, Egypt is supporting Fatah's efforts to regain control of Gaza.
Because of Egypt's inability to maintain the Gaza border, and the danger of Palestinian terrorists getting into Egypt, Israel is building a more secure fence along its 230 kilometers border with Egypt. The fence will cost over a million dollars a kilometers. Meanwhile, a Palestinian rocket landed in southern Israel, wounding an eight year old kid and infuriating public opinion.
From Y2K to DDT to the Theory of Evolution, scientists have been wrong, wrong, wrong
I confess that I have been a pseudo-scientist for some time now, no really! I have studied a great deal about astronomy, nanotechnology, biotech, genetics, etc. because I am a science fiction writer and I need to know the genre that I write within really well. Of course I don't have a degree in anything like astronomy but I have a pretty good idea on how everything works (in general). That was why I was completely shocked this last week over findings that astronomers revealed, so much so that I believe we need to seriously re-think who we are believing and what these people are saying. I guess I am saying that scientists can no longer be completely trusted. They apparently have their own agendas and finding the "truth" isn't one of them.
For example, scientists have been completely wrong on the age of the universe; first it was 30 billion years old, then 20 billion years old, then 15 billion years old, and now 13.5 billion years old. When looking at the numbers this is a huge error but apparently when scientists discover that they have made very serious errors they are allowed to retain their credibility, no questions asked. I find this rather odd since no other field (journalism, banking, etc) would allow these sorts of major errors without a person being thrown out on his butt for being wrong in such a huge manner. Here is another recent gaffe among astronomers: apparently our Milky Way galaxy is twice the size as formally thought, and twice as thick. I mean if they cannot even get the parameters of our home galaxy correct, why should anyone believe scientists about other galaxies in the universe? We are being duped by these so-called "experts" and we are blithely letting it happen. In another major fundamental error, the Grand Canyon is supposedly three times older than geologists have thought. Again, huge enormous errors are taking place in the scientific community and yet they still retain their credibility with the general public. Or look at man-made global warming; no empirical evidence and yet thousands of scientists believe in it, and threaten to revoke anyone else's credentials if they don't tow the (fascist) party line. Well.....I say no more! I have long believed that science and scientists have skewed data for their own purposes and deliberately lied in oder to gain additional public funding, an d it's not just the Americans either. Look at the scientist from South Korea who said he had cloned an entire adult human being; his claims were fraudulent from the beginning.
Here is another example of how seriously wrong scientists have been. Since 1939, radio and TV signals have left the Earth and passed over 100,000 stars....and no one has replied back. This means to me that the universe has little or no intelligent life. Two prominent scientists from the University of Washington have discovered that only the presence of our (abnormally) large moon allows for intelligent life to form under its' immense protective shield. Major asteroid strikes have been absorbed by the moon and allowed life to grow on this fair planet and the moons size also stabilizes the Earths' rotation around the Sun, again allowing life to thrive on the Earth's surface. However, since the Moons' creation was the result of a freak accident, it is very likely that few or no other alien life exists in our universe. Indeed, astronomers made a mistake in saying that our solar system is "typical"; the make up and formation of it is average, a statement which is not true. After searching hundreds of stars with gas giants orbiting the, over 85% were found to have highly elliptical orbits, not the stable one that our solar system has. Since a gas giant has an enormous gravity field, all smaller rocky planets within a star system (like Earth and Mars) would be ejected by the pull of the gas giant, throwing them out of the system. So 85% of all star systems that are known to have planets, these elliptical gas giants make life in those star systems impossible. In fact, comparing our solar system to other solar systems, it becomes readily apparent that ours in very unique; and that scientists have been very wrong about it all, from the beginning.
I say it is time for people to make up their own minds when it comes to science and the reality of the world around them. Since scientists cannot be trusted to be truthful anymore, they have completely lost any credibility in my eyes and within a few years, once they eventually find out Man Made Global Warming is one giant ponzi scheme and socialist myth intended to destroy capitalism, the general public will turn their backs on these so-called scientists forever....and good riddance!
Many people are scared to death of guns. The schools and media taught them this. They don't even want to touch one so when someone is holding one they freak out. Funny they don't freak out when they see police have one. Well your fellow citizen may save your life easier than a police miles away. Yeah that "glad I live in a state with stricter gun laws" statement is too funny. They likely have higher crime because ONLY the crooks are armed. Who is the moron then? THAT is the power of the MEDIA!
