Under-fire UAE likely to give Israel’s Andy Ram a visa
Israeli doubles specialist Andy Ram is likely to be granted a visa by the United Arab Emirates to play in the Dubai Championships next week, which could prevent a major crisis for tennis…
“To discriminate as the UAE did against one player in this way smacks of bigotry and racism,” the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organisations said in a statement. “This must be declared unacceptable by the WTA and all international sporting associations. As we learned in the past, failure to condemn such actions and take corrective measures, proves destructive to international sporting competition.”

Biased CNN’s Angry bitter-lemon Muslim face of the ‘YouTube – Republican debate’

November 18, 2007

Biased CNN’s Angry bitter-lemon Muslim face of the ‘YouTube – Republican debate’.

From http://lightonthings.blogspot.com

If you thought that the ‘Christianne Amanpour’ trend of
belittling radical Islam menace on the entire world via some cheap ‘journalism’
of 100% inaccuracy in her infamous refuted “God’s warriors’, where she distorts
and lies on other faiths, in order to equalize others to the only real danger
the globe faces today, which is of course, not Buddhist, Christian, Jewish,
Shinto, but [extreme] Islam.

At CNN’s advertisement ahead of the Republican debates it
CHOOSE by no accident an Arab Muslim young woman covered with a Muslim scarf
asking: “If you were president, What would you do to repair the image of
America”?

Coming from a person of a culture that hates the west
especially the powerful in the west and the bastion of freedom such as US, UK,
Australia, etc. it was very odd to see the “most trusted name in news” to pick
up such an un-average American “point of view”, worse there is no secret behind
such a line, a Muslim typical propaganda as if “being liked by the Muslim world
is in US hands”….

Unless you see CNN for what it is, a worsening media as
nothing but on the Arabist side. Do not overlook the Arab money grip control,
like the Dubai “sponsorship” of CNN.

If I were to answer to that propaganda piece by that
Muslim woman, even with an effort of the best PC I’d still
answer:

Let’s see, for years, you, the Arab Muslim world have
been trying to sell to is that your grievances are mainly because of the
“palestinian” -Israel issue, hmm, President George W. Bush is the most pro
“Palestinian” president ever, the one that has pushed for an independent state,
practically an unprecedented historic gift, for this group of grandchildren of
mostly Arab immigrants into the historic land of the Jews.

So where do the Arab “Palestinians” or the Arab world as
a whole stand in its “likeness” of the US?

Did the Arab Muslim world like us better when we the US
have interfered to save Kuwaiti Arabs ass, or Bosnian Muslims
ass?

Well, maybe the ball is exclusively in your hands, in
your hate education, in your Mosques, in your mainstream media?

Maybe this “why do we hate you” is a convenient card to
take as much as you can from the US, and still demand more without every
reducing their hatred for the powerful infidel?

Well, I for one just replace the word “maybe”, for
SURE.
