Leslie Stahl's "fascination" with Islamists.

Posted on 05/13/2012 5:28:46 PM PDT by PRePublic

Leslie Stahl's "fascination" with Islamists.

It has been a long career of pro-Islamism "research," by this eloquent reporter for CBS' 60min. In the latest example (may, 13, 2012) she made a piece about Gulen, the Turkish Islamic cleric/tycoon who "funds" schools in the US and turns them into revenues for his global empire. In quoting blogs that criticize Gulen as having a hidden Islamic agenda, she confronted a head of Gulen's people, but instead of waiting for an answer from the man, Leslie jumped and PROVIDED an answer of her own... " Would you say it's Islamophobia..? The man, of course, agreed to the provided "answer." This is typical Leslie Stahl.

In fact, the entire program was not focused on the American teacher --who was fired for the sake of hiring a Turkish English teacher... revealing the fraud behind the empire -- but on her fascination with the Turkish cleric, she was so memorized by his wealth... All you saw from her was, awe. Some "fearless" reporter, seeking the "truth," alright.

(I remember, she once took an Arab-Palestinian word... His ficticious claim that he has been in the area for... hundreds of years... Never mind that no Arab can prove any connection to the land of the Jews beyond the 1800s... Or the latest admission from Hamas to Egyptian media that "Palestinians" are basically half from Egypt, the other half from other Arab land...)

Here are some suggestions to Leslie, if she were to be a bit less bias... Let's see a bit reporting on the Goliath. Not just in power and size, but in... intolerance!

1 - Checkout the usual venomous sermons in "moderate" mosques. Why not pick the March 15, 2012 example of top Islamic authority (mufti) calling to destroy all churches. Or the latest "moderate" Islamists (Egypt) call for jihad to march on Jerusalem as capital of a Caliphate. 2 - Scrutinize the ocean of racism against non-Arabs from Arabia to Sudan (Afro-Arabs, massacring millions of non-Arab natives), Mauritania (slavery), through Iraq, Syria, Libya, Gulf states (where Asian workers/slaves are constructing their impressive buildings, and Asian maids are basically sex-slaves), N. Arica (not just blacks, but Berbers natives to the land have for too long suffered immensely), Lebanon (which hosts 200,000 living the same slavery condition as the African slave/maid who committed suicide this year), children of black slaves, at the hands of) Palestinian-Arabs, Yemen, etc. These are just the tip of the iceberg, non-Muslims are either second or third in almost all Muslim land. Even in "moderate" Turkey, especially on Cyprus. 3 - Scrutinize the pro terror CAIR Islamic lobby (tied to criminal al-Arian). 4 - Heck, you can even make a 'special' on dehumanization in Islamic schools. The favorite one is of course the sick notion that Christians are pigs and Jews as apes.

Someone should marry her off to one of those sheiis with a dirty beard and long dirty robe. Then when she has to escape from the middle east under cover of night after an abusive marrige to the scum bucket maybe her “fascination” will change.... Though probably not...

It was WORSE than that! In that same segment she constantly harangued the Israeli historian to "prove" that Jews lived in the same area - she even asked for documents, archeological evidence, etc. But when the Arab asserted as you recall above...she just took it as FACT. And she is "JEWISH"!

The Leslie Stahls of this world are united in believing and promoting the “Social Gospel.”

As someone well put it several years back: “The Social Gospel can make this world a better place to go to Hell from.”

Then he said I don’t believe in the “Social Gospel” but I do believe in the “Saving Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

How about CBS go talk to citizens of Turkey about Gulen, Islamism and Sharia law?

Lets stop Americans from using our media to help the Gulen movement impose Islamism on Turkey.

Read and see more

Gulen has helped Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the AK Party impose Islamism and Sharia Law on secular modern Turkey even though tens of millions of Turks do not want it.

The photos are from demonstrations of three or four years ago protesting the ruling AK Party's Islamist leanings and reminding the AKP that they promised the voters that they would respect Turkey's heritage of secularism.

Meanwhile retired and active military, journalists, university professors, all sorts of citizens have been arrested and imprisoned awaiting trial for opposing the AK Party.

Did Leslie/ 60 Mins miss Obama's "Muslim Advisor" - or just ignore her? (Or perhaps I missed this?)

Foe starters; just Google - to find Dalia Mogahed - who is supporter/follower of Cleric Gulen and as well, she is defender of the more radical elements of Islam, including Sharia Law (and CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood. . .)

Obama is not alone in White House, with his Muslim sympathies...plenty more, like-minded close at hand.

If it were 1920, Leslie Stahl would have loved Mussolini.If it were 1930, Leslie Stahl would have loved Hitler.

Now here's the irony. Mussolini, Hitler, radical islamists - all would finish the Leslie Stahl types off rather quickly.

Thanks. BTW, the AKP has been known for Islamization. The infamous racist law article301 has been denounced by US.

CBS just posted Leslie’s piece in an article form here: http://www.cbsnews.com/2718-18560_162-962.html

Leslie Stahl’s just another example of the self-hating Jew that's found common cause with the Muslims who'll kill her in a heartbeat the moment she outlives her use as a propaganda shill for them.

Also, just because Arab Christians are by-in-large afraid (to speak out) from Totalitarian Islamic apartheid system at the “moderate” PA, doesn’t mean CBS can’t do a program on their subdued silence...
Last but not least, for CBS info... Terrorism against non-Muslims such as in Nigeria, Russia,  Egypt, China, Israel, India, Philippines, Thailand, etc., or even against Muslims who are ‘not Muslim enough...’ by jihadists, such as in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, etc., is also intolerance, and a very bloody one!

Here’s one example,
Until a century ago, the population of this region was as nebulous as the shifting sands which constituted the major part of the terrain in the Holy Land. Of some 300,000 people in Palestine at the turn of the century (according to Ottoman estimates), most were Bedouin, who recognized no geographical boundaries, knew nothing of Palestinian identity, were merely Arabs within an Ottoman empire. Many townspeople could not trace their roots in the land beyond the 1830’s..).

That's also not surprising for Leslie Stahl, Kool-Aid drinker extraordinaire.
