Atlas Shrugs (Sep 25) — Stunning. Imagine omitting Nazi, Third Reich, etc., from press accounts of World War II. This is civilizational suicide. We are covering for our executioners. And if anyone thinks that this appeases or satiates the enemy, they are delusional. This empowers them — the sanction of the victim.
Under the blasphemy laws under the sharia (Islamic law), you cannot criticize Islam. You cannot say anything that would offend a Muslim (even if its true). This is sharia in America.
The facts are that American Muslims took up arms to slaughter non-Muslims at an upscale shopping mall in Kenya. American Muslims joined a multinational force of Muslims to wage holy war in Kenya. Hostages and victims were told “all Muslims leave… we only want to kill non-Muslims”: (they released anyone who could prove they were Muslim by reciting a prayer), they attacked American and Jewish shops, women and children were slaughtered if they could not recite the Koran, the jihadis cut the hands off the bodies of their victims and burned their faces.
‘Islam,’ ‘Muslim’ censored from newspaper reports on Kenya, Pakistan attacks By Katie Yoder, FOX News
Dare a top newspaper journalist to play connect-the-dots and chances are he’ll fail miserably – at least with drawing the line between Islam and terrorism.
In Nairobi, Kenya last weekend, Islamist militants took over a high-end shopping mall and began executing non-Muslims. In Pakistan, Islamist suicide bombers detonated at a Christian Church on Sunday.
Yet on Monday, September 23, 90 percent of the top ten (via circulation numbers) daily newspapers’ headlines in the United States censored the words “Islam” and Muslim” from Nairobi and Pakistan reports. One – the New York Daily News – didn’t even have a headline for the latest Islamic terrorist attacks. That’s journalism at its finest.
The Wall Street Journal’s (WSJ) headline by Heidi Vogt announced that “Assault on Mall Stuns Kenya” and called the act a “terrorist attack” by “armed militants.” In a small reference to the Pakistan Christian fatalities, the newspaper credited a group linked with the “Pakistan Taliban.”
As the second most popular newspaper after the WSJ, proclaimed “Carnage In Mall Shows Resilience of Terror Group” for an article by Nicholas Kulish, Mark Mazzetti and Eric Schmitt. In fact, on the front page the Times used every description but the Islamic connection to describe the aggressors: “the ferocious armed political movement known as the Shabab” – with ties to Al Qaeda and Boko Haram.
