Just Don’t Touch their Symbol
(Article by Ben-Dror Yemini, Ma’ariv, 20.6.08, Weekend Supplement, pp. 18-19)
Everyone remembers the death of Muhammad Al-Dura. France 2 accused the IDF; the Israeli media went along. One Frenchman dared to doubt and began a kulturkampf; the Israeli media was silent. It has now become clear that he was right. Israel is still silent.
Comment: I first detected how the western media operates in the 1990’s when researching the fighting in Yugoslavia. One example among hundreds is the photos produced by ITN (the British TV news giant) from footage shot in a refugee center in the town of Trnopolje. While ITN was shooting another film crew happened to film ITN, and their film shows that the ITN reports broadcast in the UK that Trnopolje was a prisoner camp was a deliberate hoax.
Azerbaijan tried to use CNN to pull the same stunt on the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh. In this case it didn’t work because the Armenians stopped it in its early stages. Actually the Armenians in the US threatened CNN with physical violence, a little known fact.
This is why Islamic violence in Europe works against anyone that speaks ill of Islam. The western media is staffed by little people that are cowards that know it’s safe and makes money to take a cheap shot against a western interest vs publishing the truth about Islam.
Israel is now the convenient bad guy, like the Serbs in the Balkans. The Jewish Left had better wake up from their soporific stupor. Israel will soon be fighting for its life.
From TENC, the effect of the ITN hoax:
On 6 August 1992, just 20 minutes after the pictures were released, George Bush, Sr. held a press conference at a Colorado Air Base:
"Reports say that 20 minutes after the ITN footage was shown in the United States, President George Bush changed his hands-off policy and promised to 'press hard for quick passage' of a UN Security Council resolution authorising the use of force in the Balkans."
-- "Holocaust images of Bosnia prison camps make the West sit up," The Straits Times, by Lee Siew Hua, August 16, 1992, Pg. 4, 907 words.
President Bush, Sr. demanded that the Serbs - the Bosnian Serbs and the Republic of Serbia as well - be harshly punished, including:
"tighten[ing] economic sanctions on Serbia so that all understand that there is a real price to be paid for the Serbian government's continued aggression."
-- "Statement by President Bush, Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado," Federal News Service, August 6, 1992, Thursday, White House Briefing, 1748 words.
Bush, Sr. also announced that now the U.S. would recognize Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia as independent from Yugoslavia. Thus he used the phony death camp photos to endorse the break-up of Yugoslavia. By recognizing the Bosnian government, run by the Islamic fundamentalist Alijah Izetbegovic, he guaranteed that the Bosnian war would continue.
