  • Hamas, Islamic Jihad & Hezbollah desperately in "need" of CREATING yet another 'massacre'

    08/13/2007 11:35:13 PM PDT · by PRePublic · 365+ views
    Hamas, Islamic Jihad & Hezbollah desperately in “need” of CREATING yet another ‘massacre’. It seems that the Anti-Israel Islamists see themselves again in the grey routine which they hate, the world sees who they are, that the “struggle” they keep talking about is nothing but senseless violence & attempt of pure genocide. Boy do they long for the days that the BBC wrote about “killing civilians in Lebanon”, though they all know too well what percentage of real “civilians” were there, they also know their success in getting Arab people in Lebanon killed, after all it was Islamists’ great...

    IT'S bad enough that friends of Hezbollah terrorists could trick so many journalists with just a tall story and a rusty Lebanese ambulance. Worse is that some of those journalists seemed so eager to believe this ambulance was indeed wickedly blown up by an Israeli missile fired straight through the big red cross on its roof -- leaving not even a scorch mark. But worst is that even now that this hoax has been exposed, none of the countless writers and commentators who fell for it have admitted to passing on as fact the propaganda of terrorists.

    The media war against Israel Early in the recent Lebanon war, the blogosphere revealed the fabrication of images by Reuters, whose reputation is now in shreds among those dwindling numbers in the western mainstream media who still acknowledge there is such a thing as the truth. Since then, the nature and scale of the various frauds perpetrated by the media during that war put those doctored Reuters pictures into the shade. The western media are no longer merely producing questionable professional practices in reporting a war. They are now active participants in it and on the wrong side of...

    I had not intended to post again on the "Qanagate" affair until the report in preparation was finished - which still needs a few more days. However, one of our readers has recently unearthed additional video footage, shot by Aljazeera. This more or less proves that the "dead baby" scene, in which "Green Helmet" was photographed by Reuters' Adnan Hajj (he of doctored photograph fame) uncovering the body of Abbas Ahmad Hashim, was not only staged, but faked. The very strong indications are that the body of baby Hashim was uncovered early in the recovery effort by two Red Cross...

Alongside those are shots of engineers working for Hezballah rolling up their sleeves to repair the infrastructure damaged in a war caused by Hezballahs ill considered cross border incursion,...

    Many of the mainstream media apologists have conceded and they had little choice but to do so that many of the photographs of the Israelis response to Hez bAllahs act of war, were staged. The evidence of staging and Photoshopping is too public. The media allowed itself to be used to defame Israel, stir up sympathy for Lebanon and halt the advance into Lebanon. But the concessions of wrongdoing stop short with digital alterations. Media spokesmen are still in denial about the biggest media fraud of all: the dramatic dead baby display at Qana.

    When Reuters was forced to sever ties with free-lance photographer Adnan Hajj and remove more than 900 of his photos from its database earlier this month, long-whispered questions about the reliability of Arab stringers and freelancers came to the forefront. But while the widespread use of Arab locals in covering the Middle East raises many legitimate concerns, the Palestinian propaganda machine has enjoyed tremendous success over the years hoodwinking supposedly sophisticated Western journalists. And Hezbollah appears to have done the same over the past month. In short, almost nothing that is purported to happen in the Arab world can automatically...

The case also increased pressure on news photo editors, who select and edit thousands of photographs under deadline pressure each day, to detect digital alterations.

On July 31, the News and Post ran the...

    EVER since the Israeli onslaught on Lebanon started on July 12, the whole world has been watching one gruesome act of terror after the other by the Zionists almost on a daily basis. However, the biggest shock was delivered last Sunday, July 30, when Israel wrote a new chapter of indescribable savagery in what is now known as Qana carnage. On that morning the Israeli air force shelled a three-storey residential building in the Qana city in Lebanon. The aerial attack left more than 60 civilians dead, 37 of them children. While Israel is fully capable of stooping to a...
  • Jihad Journalism? [Reuters Media Bias]

    Media Bias: Need a little anti-war, anti-Semitic buck-up? Try some Reuters coverage. The British news outlet will be only too happy to oblige. Over the weekend, a Reuters photographer was caught trying to make one of Israel's defensive attacks against Hezbollah in Lebanon look much more devastating than it was. The photo was eventually withdrawn and the photographer ostensibly fired. The photo, an image of the aftermath of an Israeli airstrike in Beirut, had apparently been altered to give the effect that the smoke was thicker and the damage worse than it was. The doctored version, credited to Adnan Hajj,...

    The Passion of the Toys In Platoon, Oliver Stone said the first casualty of war is innocence. He was wrong. As the photos here show, the first casualties of war are...the symbols of innocence. And photographers from Reuters and the AP just happened upon many of these perfectly placed symbols of war's horrors. Ben Curtis, AP Sharif Karim, Reuters Sharif Karim, Reuters Sharif Karim, Reuters Issam Kobeisi, Reuters Mohamed Azakir, Reuters This last one is the only one that seems...untouched. Feel the pathos. Mourn for these oh-so-photogenic and suspiciously dust-free trinkets of childhood. Just don't ask any questions about their...
  • The MSM is working--actively--for Hezbollah -- Part 2: The propaganda machine

    (Scroll down or click here to see Part 1.) To describe the MSM as a bunch of intellectually incurious, useless, effete hacks would only be partially accurate. They are actually quite useful---to our enemies. There are some who consider them to be accidentally useful, like Lenin's "useful idiots." They say that it is the de facto result of the aggregate biases held by the majority of journalists, but that it is not intentional. I wonder. Misreporting, faked photos, staged incidents. Refusal to correct stories that have been utterly discredited. The withholding of footage that proves an earlier report incorrect.* Rathergate....

    Peretz's comments come in light of the continuation of military operations in south Lebanon and diplomatic efforts to find a solution for the crisis, mainly at the United Nations Security Council. "A military confrontation is not sufficient," Peretz stressed. "It is a tool that creates a room for maneuver for reaching the best political deal." Peretz said that Israel's biggest problem is the fact that over million Israelis are in shelters and the army's duty is to allow northern communities to return to their lives as soon as possible.

    UNITED NATIONS - Israel's air raid on in the Lebanese town of Qana, which killed 28 people, may be part of a larger pattern of violations of international law in the war between Israel and Hezbollah, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said in a report Monday. In that light, Annan said that the July 30 attack was sufficiently serious to merit a more comprehensive investigation. The attack should be seen "in the broader context of what could be, based on preliminary information available to the United Nations ... a pattern of violations of international law, including international humanitarian law and international...

    I wish I were just being sensationalistic with that headline, I really do. Unfortunately, it appears that the MSM are not just unwitting pawns of Hezbollah's propaganda machine, they are active participants. In Part 2, we will aggregate some analysis of these specifics. However, we begin in Part 1 to look at why it may be so very easy for them to get away with it. Hezbollah cannot win by force of arms alone. They need to change the opinion of the electorates in the democratic countries they oppose. These days, that is not hard to do, for two reasons....
