See [NOT]… again, CNN’s Tonight – Jihadists apologist: Christianne Amanpour’s FAKE ‘Jewish warriors’.

October 31, 2007


CNN’s Jihadists apologist & Jew-hater: Christianne Amanpour’s FAKE ‘Jewish warriors’


What a low level of fake “journalism” in turning self defense by Israelis into a “religious matter”, in a cheap attempt to try and equate anti terrorism to Jihadi fascists, only Islamic “warriors” kill in the NAME of religion, even Christianne Amanpour “strongest proof”: Baruch Goldstein did NOT act in the name of religion, he went mad and insane, personally after friends were all killed.


The so called “International law”, which was orchestrated by Arab Muslim lobbyists and oil power, is repeated by this Arabist “journalist”, many times, what “international law” is there about defending lives?

Then she has her venomous hateful way of portraying pro-Zionists as “fanatics”, in other words, total demonization, goes after everyone sympathetic to Jews living in their historic land.

As if “settlements” are ‘THE’ obstacle to peace? how much closer to ‘peace’ did the middle east came as soon as “religious God’s warriors” gave over Israel’s piece of land to the Arab grand children of mere) immigrants?

The “Palestinians” [as soon as Israel made that historic sacrifice in 2005] couldn’t wait to support overwhelmingly the terror “movement” Hamas, bend on “drinking the blood of the Jews and wipe them all of [their words!] (Hamas vows to ‘drink’ Jewish blood http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=48844 ).

Why would she magnify the “settlements” subject? well, In accordance with the first rule in Pallywood propaganda, to lie to the world that anti Israel stems from supposedly “issues” [today it’s a barrier against bombers, What was (always violent) Arabs’ excuse before 1967?], and not the truth which is the bigotry of ‘not wanting the non Arab-Muslim entity’ there.

Which is why she [in her pick and choose history] ignores the basic historical facts of Arab attacks on Jews in Israel/palestine many years before any such “settlements” came about, or even much prior to the reinstating of the ‘renewed state of Israel’. (A History of Arab Terrorism in Israel since 1920…
http://lindasog.com/public/terrorvictims.htm)

Or [talking about ‘international law’?] that the Arabs rejected the UN offer of partition and STARTED all the wars against Israel.

Which the reason she avoids the entire central struggle of Israel, survival against genocide, that is.

(Even the issue of ‘settlements’ has within it, an argument of a security buffer zone, not just a “religiious” argument.)

Amanpour also “provided” us a typical ‘Palestinian’ propaganda title, that the Intifadah was to “shake off Israel’s occupation”, what a blatant lie, radical Muslims want to kill every Jew [at least] in the entire area, period! (Hamas is committed to continuing jihad against “the Jews” until Allah’s victory is implemented. … Oh Allah, annihilate the Jews and their supporters. …
http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/comment-littman092602.asp, And supporting Iran’s Islamic Hitler Ahmadinejad, that wants to wipe off Israel
http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/iran/zionist-entity.htm)
.

So desperate to embed her hateful anti-Israel bigotry into “religion” she had 0% success in connecting the [not Islamic lobby, or the most powerful lobby the Arab oil lobby, but the] Pro-Israel lobby, it seems clearly, that Chrstianne Amanpour was looking for an opportunity to simply bash Jews.

What on earth does secular state of Israel’s anti terror policies have to do with “religion”?

CNN’s program, is nothing but an appeasement for the only ones that are of a real threat to the world, [AKA Islamo-Fascists], on every corner of the face of this earth, and trivializing their crimes as “just another extremist phenomenon”.This too, plus a venemous hate against Jews by Arabist Christianne Amanpour.
