Calling out Al Jazeera, the mother ship of this century's Goebbels-style propaganda machine. Robert Spencer nails it:
Note al-Jazeera's caption
Al-Jazeera has been dubbed "the most powerful voice of the Muslim Brotherhood." And Pamela Geller has noted
that "Al Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in
the world. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al
Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was
arrested on terror charges. Al Jazeera also has for years been the
recipient of numerous Al Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, Zawahiri, and
American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet they never seem to be able to trace
where these videos are coming from. They have repeatedly been set up at
the point of attack right before a bomb went off, so that they could
take the picture of the slaughtered, dismembered bodies."
So it is no surprise that al-Jazeera would be joining Muslim Brotherhood-linked propagandist Wajahat Ali and pseudo-academic analyst of "Islamophobia" Haroon Moghul
in trying in the most cynical fashion to exploit the murder of a Hindu
by an insane woman to defame counter-jihadists by blaming it on us.
The December 31 al-Jazeera piece, "Anti-Muslim violence spiralling out of control in America,"
by Canadian "journalist" Murtaza Hussain, repeats the usual libels,
distortions, and fictions that I've answered many, many times before
(including the claim that "anti-Muslim violence is spiralling out of
control in America" — all that and more answered, rather
comprehensively, here just a couple of days ago), and so I won't try your patience by repeating all the rebuttals.
What is noteworthy about the al-Jazeera piece is its bellowing,
spitting, vein-popping hysteria, and its level of mendacity so high as
to make Ali and Moghul look like sober truth-tellers. Start with the
photo and caption above: "Egyptian-American activist Mona Eltahawy was
arrested for attempting to cover an anti-Muslim ad in the subway." This
suggests that Mona Eltahawy was not arrested for vandalism, which was
actually the case, but for opposing an "Islamophobic" message — as if
America were so "Islamophobic" that rogue cops roam the streets (and
subways) terrorizing anyone who dares to interfere with the omnipresent
propagation of "hate."
And this "journalist," Murtaza Hussain, is right across the border in
Toronto. In other words, he knows better, but he also knows the kind of
raw red meat of America-hatred and lurid Muslim victimhood fantasy that
al-Jazeera readers want.
Then in the article there is this:
…Leading figures in this movement such as Pamela Geller
and Robert Spencer have led a crusade to vilify Muslims throughout the
country and to exclude them from public life through campaigns of smears
and hate-mongering which have cast Muslim-Americans as an insidious
fifth column within the country….
Once again we see the peculiar practice of Islamic supremacists and
Letists, of claiming that our anti-jihad ads "vilify Muslims." Most of
the time they insist that the vast majority of Muslims abhor and oppose
jihad terror, but when anyone speaks out against it, he's "vilifying
Then comes the wholly fictitious claim that Geller and I want to
"exclude [Muslims] from public life." And this clown has the chutzpah to
complain about "smears and hate-mongering." Look in the mirror, Murtaza
— after you clear away the spittle you'll see a genuine smear merchant
