Posted on 08/02/2006 4:32:29 AM PDT by unionblue83
The Israeli air strike on the Lebanese village of Qana early Sunday morning did more than kill 57 civilians, says Jefferson Morley in the Washington Post. According to a wide range of commentary in the international media, it inflamed already boiling public opinion in the Arab world against Israel, undermined what little support the United States has among the Lebanese people, and illuminated the continuing inability of Israel and the United States to achieve their goal of decisively weakening Hezbollah. The Hindustan Times editorialized that with Qana, one senses that the Israelis definition of collateral damage has started to bear a striking resemblance to that of the very terrorist organisation that they are keen to destroy. At a rally outside the State Department building protesting the Qana massacre on Monday, Leftist protestors chanted, Hey, Rice! What do you say? How many kids have you killed today?; Israel Out of Lebanon! Ceasefire, Now; and Shame! Shame! Shame, on you! An Australian Muslim in Qana told Australias Herald Sun: I would say a few hundred have died. This isnt war, its genocide.
Except for one little detail: it is increasingly clear that the Qana massacre was a stage-managed Hizballah production, designed precisely to enflame international sentiment against Israel and compel the Israelis to accept a ceasefire that would enable the jihad terrorist group to gain some time to recover from the Israeli attacks. Some of the principal evidence for this:

where was the outrage over the first blown up bus in Jerusalem? Or the hundredth? Or Leon Klinghoffer's brutal murder. Or...
And the collaborationist, "praying for defeat" media went for it totally. How insignificant can they possibly be?
At least it wasn't a "Baby Milk Factory."
It's floating around the blogsphere right now. If this follows memogate, the next thing will be that Hannity. Rush, etc. start giving it big airtime. Then BOR will mention it on his show. Then, Britt Hume. Then, all of Fox News. This will then spread (with a skeptical eye, but spread nonetheless) to the cable nets and national newspapers, then finally to the big MSM.
At least that's what I'm hoping ;)
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the MSM has kinda backed off on the Qana story?
Thanks - boy it would be good to have htis confirmed
Rush and Mark Levin have been talking about it this week, and John Batchelor really has this week. I've even heard it mentioned or questioned on Fox this week.
It seems that the world media has never read the story about the "little boy who cried 'wolf.'"
Time after time after time, they print these sorts of stories as if they're gospel, where the poor, defenseless terrorists are being maccacred by those mean old Jews. And then the dead fall off the stretchers and scramble to get back on them as they're being carried to their "funerals" (caught on camera). Or the survivors of the Jenin "massacre" boast about how well they boobytrapped the residences, and how they used human shields.
Maybe some day, the MSM might begin to get the idea that they might begin to gain trust when they give up their position as official propaganda wing of terrorist organizations.
Rush talked about the Qana setup on his show Monday, and gave out the link to the eureferendom blog.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
You can try Spencer's www.jihadwatch.org website. I'll see what I can track down on other sources.
Soon the Arab world will realize that it is not a good idea to support and defend renegade radical groups such as the hezbo's, hamas, taliban, and alquaida.....
Frontpagemag is not well received in the UK even in some conservative circles. But it seems to me this is beginning to get wider publicity......any help to understand this more would be gratefully received.
A few nights ago, Bill O'Reilly was interviewing the Israeli ambassador, who brought this up, stating that the incident was still under investigation. But that it looked as if it were staged, and the truth was on Israel's side. BOR in effect said that the truth doesn't matter, and I guess he's right. Because it doesn't, at least not to those that the propaganda is aimed at. The problem is that the media found something that they could latch on to, and immediately used it, just the way that Hezbollah wanted it to be used.
Does anybody here remember how the media screamed when they thought that they were being manipulated during the first gulf war by the US military? But when they're being blatently used for propaganda by the terrorists, nothing.
(Go Israel, Go! Slap 'Em Down Hezbullies.)
As I replied to someone else, BOR has said that the truth doesn't matter, at least as far as the propaganda value goes.
The media has done it's part to spread hatred against Israel and the Jews by their terrorist masters.
