    Looking in The Eyes of evil “You attacked us in Somalia; you supported the Russian atrocities against us in Chechnya, the Indian oppression against us in Kashmir, and the Jewish aggression against us in Lebanon” “Under your supervision, consent and orders, the governments of our countries which act as your agents, attack us on a daily basis” “These governments steal our Ummah's wealth and sell them to you at a paltry price” These quotes from Usama bin Laden could be considered to be one of two realities, either Usama bin Laden is a mad man who is in complete disillusionment...

    Most readers of The Sun are possessed of sight, hearing and a lively interest in public affairs. How many of them would voluntarily accept the risk of losing them to advance the reasons the government of the United States has stated for waging war in Iraq? Many young Americans have lost sight and hearing in Iraq. If asked to speak to America on the loss, this is what one of them might say. “Dear America: “I am an American soldier. I am 20 years old. I am blind and deaf. I lost my face to a grenade in Iraq. “You...

  • Parallels between Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 and Goebbels' Der ewige Jude

    now | Me
    Micheal Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 propaganda film style reminds of Joseph Goebbels' Der ewige Jude {The Eternal Jew}. The parallels are unmistakable. Crude and full of half truths, some segemts are absurdly laughable. They both play fast and loose with the truth to create support for a lie. For example, notice the footage of a kosher slaughter {still row 22} where a jewish rabbi is falsely shown to be gleeful because a cow is bleeding to death. They both rely on a heap of innuendo and conspiracy theories, that if to be belived, one must take a leap of faith: -Goebbels...

    "Give Fox News Channel star Bill O'Reilly credit for even attending Monday night's lefty celeb-glutted premiere of Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 9/11' - even if he walked out of the 110-minute Bush-bashing movie halfway through," the New York Daily News said today. The paper reports that on his radio program last week, O'Reilly compared Moore to the National Socialists' master of deceit: "Joseph Goebbels was the minister of propaganda for the Nazi regime and whose very famous quote was, 'If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.'" But when Moore caught O'Reilly escaping the schlockumentary early, "O'Reilly blushed,...

    ''Fahrenheit 9/11'' finds domestic distributor GARY GENTILE, AP Business Writer Tuesday, June 1, 2004 (06-01) 17:30 PDT LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Michael Moore's award-winning documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" has picked up a U.S. distributor and will hit theaters June 25. The film will be released by a partnership of Lions Gate Films, IFC Films and the Fellowship Adventure Group, which was formed by Harvey and Bob Weinstein specifically to market Moore's film. The Weinsteins, who run Miramax Films, bought the rights to the movie from The Walt Disney Co., which owns Miramax and refused to distribute Moore's film. The Weinstein brothers...

    It was supposed to be an event where World War II-era journalists could swap war stories and bask in the glory of the soon-to-be christened WWII memorial on Washington, D.C.'s mall. But it didn't take long for CBS "60 Minutes" star Mike Wallace and USA Today founder Al Neuharth, who had been invited to address the crowd, to turn Friday's WWII reminiscence into bash-Bush rally. Wallace began innocently enough, telling the crowd that in WWII, "We knew what we were fighting for. We knew how important it was. We loved our country. We loved our commander-in-chief. "And when Pearl...

    The pictures which sparked claims UK soldiers abused Iraqis were staged at a British barracks by Territorial Army (TA) members, it has been reported. Sources told the Daily Telegraph the photographs were set up in a Bedford MK lorry at Kimberley TA base in Preston. Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon said it was likely the pictures were a hoax. The regiment accused of the abuse has demanded an apology from the Daily Mirror for publishing the images, but the paper has stood by their accuracy. The photographs appeared to show soldiers from the Queen's Lancashire Regiment urinating on a prisoner and...

    In the Style section last summer we profiled a Los Angeles writer named Micah Ian Wright, who'd just published a shrill antiwar poster book called "You Back the Attack! We'll Bomb Who We Want!" In his book, he described himself as a veteran of combat, a former Army Ranger whose experiences during the 1989 invasion of Panama turned him into a peacenik. In interviews with The Post and other media, he played up that background. Wright, it turns out, is a liar. He never served in the military --

He's still talking about finding "weapons of mass destruction" -- this time on Saddam's "turkey farm." Turkey indeed. Clearly the White House believes there are enough idiots in the 17 swing states who will buy this. I think they are in for a rude awakening. I've been holed up for weeks in the editing room finishing my film ("Fahrenheit 911"). That's why you haven't heard from me lately....

    Misquoted Iraq rape tales arouse Turks' fury By Charles Radin in Istanbul January 5, 2004 The allegations can be heard almost everywhere in Turkey, from farmers' wives in kebab shops, in influential journals and from erudite political leaders: US troops have raped thousands of Iraqi women and young girls since ousting Saddam Hussein. Articles in Turkey's Islamic press reporting the allegations have fanned opposition here to the US invasion of Iraq to white-hot anger - and even, apparently, to murder. Nurullah Kuncak says his father, Ilyas Kuncak, was boiling with rage about the rumoured rapes just before he killed himself...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein's whereabouts remained a mystery Monday even after his capture, with CNN reporting he had been moved to the Gulf state of Qatar and an Iraqi official insisting he was still in Iraq. The plot only thickened when the U.S. military declined to say where it was keeping the former dictator, who was still being hidden after eight months hiding himself. "For security reasons we cannot identify where he is at the moment," Captain Bruce Frame from U.S. Central Command in Florida told Reuters. U.S.-led troops who toppled Saddam, 66, in April captured him Saturday in...

    Israel´s leading journalists are totally confused. They simply do not understand this business about the canning of CNN´s Peter Arnett. After all, all that Arnett did was appear on TV and condemn his own country and openly, publicly support the enemy in time of war. That is all! You see, Israeli journalists find this so troubling because, for decades, the main function of Israeli journalists has been to denounce their own country and openly support the enemy in time of war. Their mantra is effectively: "The Enemy of Our Country, Right or Wrong!" Their role model has long been Lord...

    Is perky "Today Show" host Katie Couric actually rooting for Saddam Hussein to survive U.S.'s military's repeated attempts to take him out? It sure sounded that way during a report she delivered on the fate of the Baghdad Butcher yesterday. While chatting about Saddam with NBC's Pentagon correspondent Jim Miklaszewski, the multi-million-dollar morning host asked whether U.S. officials had been able to "confirm reports he was taken to Tikrit, and then Mosul, and then hopefully to Syria." Hopefully? Surely Ms. Couric didn't mean to suggest that she actually hoped the brutal dictator would escape justice by fleeing to another terrorist-sponsoring...

Working from Baghdad, on Sunday, 03/30/03, he gave an interview to Iraqi TV that amounted to a heaping helping of propaganda. Here are some snippets. Judge for yourself: "The first war plan has failed because of Iraqi resistance. Now they are trying to write another war plan. Clearly, the American war planners misjudged the determination of the Iraqi forces." The above statement is especially egregious because it could only serve to...
