Reaping What is Sown
Reader comment on: Muslims Angry Over Spanish Citizenship for Jews
Submitted by John Whitbread (United Kingdom), Dec 26, 2012 07:07
Muslim expansionism by military conquest was only stopped from overtaking Europe by drastic and determined military response. There is a huge propaganda excercise on to revise our understanding of European and world history. The archaeological and written evidence is however enough to dispel this image of a benign force at work in European and world history. The words may be soothing, persuasive, and pleading, but the deeds do not match them. The fact is Islam, as an international entity, invaded non-Muslim sovereign territory in a brutally enforced and relentless drive to Islamize the known world. Muslims have no legal rights to claim moral equivalence to the Spanish Jews who had migrated to Spain, lived under Spanish sovereignty and lived under Spanish law until they were expelled for reasons of racial and religious prejudice. Muslims were driven back out from the land they illegally invaded and seized by conquest. They may think that, in accordance with their religious beliefs that Spain, once it was conquered, became an Islamic waqf, but that is by their own unique set of laws that only apply to them. International law recognizes the rights of the invaded - not the invader, as is just and proper. Any attempt to Islamize international law or the laws of other nations must be resisted at every opportunity.

"We know that Hamas uses human shields. But why would you report this when you are sitting in the middle of the Gaza Strip, surrounded by Hamas gunmen?" — Reporter covering the war, who asked not to be identified.
Besides the human shields story there is another item that the international media choose to ignore: the extrajudicial execution of Palestinian "collaborators" during the last two weeks. The executions were reportedly carried out in the most brutal manner. Hamas has also been shooting suspected "collaborators" in the legs to prevent them from moving around.
It is the media that is helping Hamas get away with war crimes.

This was the first time since World War II that an anti-Semitic pogrom took place in France.
Almost all French politicians adopt an attitude of appeasement toward the enemies of Israel and Jews. They act as if they did not see that the hate speech that France finances in the Middle East is now spreading throughout France itself.
No major French television report speaks of Hamas's genocidal Jew-hatred or of the use of Arab women and children as human shields. Criticizing radical Islam on public television is now almost impossible. Members of the Israeli government are never interviewed on French television.
French politicians know that 70% of all the inmates in French prisons are Muslims, and that these prisons have been transformed into recruiting centers for jihadists.

Even in its weakest moments, would Britain have risked a cease-fire with Nazi Germany during World War II -- knowing that Hitler habitually broke his promises?

It is the very power of numbers, graphics and photographs that makes them compelling ways to prove a point, and lousy ways of explaining what is really going on.
Creating compelling clickbait in the form of infographics is a disturbing trend in news today. But that is not "all the news that is fit to print;" that is propaganda.
