The Sickness That Is The Muslim Terrorist

Robert Fisk, writing in The Independent, reported the story of Margaret Hassan and her death at the hands of sadistic Muslim fanatics whose only thought is to kill in the name of God as though any God in this world wants an heroic woman to be brutally murdered on television. Fisk was allowed to see the video of her death due to Al Jazeera TV reporters who themselves are frequently sickened by the manner in which terrorists kill their victims while recording the sordid and brutal episode on video. Margaret Hassan, a friend of Fisk, brought medicine to Iraqi children in the 1990s, opposed the US invasion of Iraq, and was a tireless worker for peace and the Iraqi people, but the cowards who killed her in the name of their so-called fight for freedom are among the most sickening creatures in the world.

Ayman Gaballah of Al Jazeera, who has seen numerous such tapes of murder and brutality told Fisk his organization did its best to withhold such gory episodes from their TV programming. One video shows Ms. Hassan being forced to admit she worked for the Americans even though she opposed them. In another, a man calmly shoots her and the video depicts her body falling onto a plastic sheet. No decent human can cheer at the death of a woman who fought for the rights of Arab people. Fisk was also shown a tape of 18 young Iraqis who were shot and killed and a man whose head was severed.

The Fisk report also describes the idiotic behavior of Dick Cheney and CIA director George Tenet who visited the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khaifa, who supports Al Jazeera and being read the riot act by the arrogant American. The Emir also got all of a thirty second interview with Dick Cheney who was infuriated at the idea of an Arab TV station presenting a viewpoint other than the official American line of thinking. Al Jazeera is a force for reporting that which most Americans never see– another viewpoint about the Middle East.

These horrible scenes of death when sometimes shown on videos frequently receive cheers from angry Muslims who somehow believe killing innocent westerners is justified due to the death of thousands of innocent Muslims at the hands of American forces. The death of any innocent person is to be condemned by those who adhere to moral values. An Israeli death is no different than a Muslim death, both are horrible events. Margaret Hassan died because she believed in peace. Let us all celebrate her heroism and we condemn those who killed her.

Al Jazeera Blasted For Honoring Killer!

The Al Jazeera television channel admitted yesterday it violated its own code of ethics by broadcasting a July 19 program which made released killer Samir Qantar as a hero to the masses. Qantar killed innocent Israelis and bashed in the head of a child, but he was welcomed as a hero by thousands of people in Lebanon and Al Jazeera played up the performance by the two bit thug and murderer. The network said its editorial board concluded the broadcast “violated Al Jazeera’s Code of Ethics” and it regards “these violations as as very serious and will assess what action is necessary.”

Israel had stated yesterday that it would no longer expedite Al Jazeera’s applications for entry visas and work permits in Israel. However, in light of the apology and promise to take corrective action the Israel government may once accord the television channel normal media rights.

The entire display by the Lebanese people to glorify a murderer who bashes in the head of children was disgraceful. Al Jazeera is to be commended for its honesty in being self critical.

Kafka Story In Modern Czech Republic

Professor Mark Tomass was on a normal bus trip from Moravia to Prague when suddenly he discovered himself trapped in a Kafka story that was only too real. Tomass isa Syrian born American who had just finished teaching a class when he boarded the hopped on the bus to return home. Tomass received his cup of coffee from the stewardess but his head remained focused on his lap top where he was working on a story. After the bus stopped, Tomass noticed the passenger who had been sitting next to him talking excitedly to the police. Tomass shrugged his head and returned to his lap top when he felt a tap on his shoulder and soon realized a policeman was beckoning him outside. He was told the police had been informed by a passenger that the words “Al Jazeera” had appeared on the screen of his lap top and they wanted to know what he was doing.

The police took his passport and began to fill out a report while one made a call to get a background check on the man who was writing about Al Jazeera. Tomass argued with the police but the background check apparently neve turned up any incriminating evidence and he was allowed back on the bus. The Prague department of the State Police confirmed the incident but said the case was closed.

This is a case of the ignorant pestering those who have knowledge in order to make certain that ignorance might possible triumph over stupdity.

Al Jazeera Poll Reveals Distrust Of Bush

During the past week, Al-Jazeera conducted a poll among Arabs in several nations regarding how the public views the upcoming George Bush sponsored Middle Eastern peace conference to discuss the Israel-Palestinian situation. Of those surveyed, 95.8% said the conference would fail and that nothing would be done to create an independent Palestinian state or deal with the refugee problem.

The only consolation for President Bush is that at least 4.2% of respondents have faith in his ability to bring peace to the Middle East. The poll merely reflects how respect for America has reached new lows in the Middle East and nothing will change them these attitudes until George Bush leaves office.
