The Media War Against Iraq
We all know how millions of Iraqis feel towards the mouth of horror Al Jazeera channel. Iraq’s popular satellite channel Al Fayhaa talks continuously about the war that the Arab media (i.e Al Jazeera) is waging against the new Iraq.
It seems that this war is also being waged by huge media outlets such as the Associated Press. AP has a lot of questions to answer regarding how one of its photojournalists stood in front of 30 armed insurgents and shot a sequence of photos showing the day light execution of 2 Iraqis who belong to another group of Iraq’s heroes: election workers. How can a photographer, given the fact that anyone can get kidnapped in Iraq, stand in the middle of the street and shots a picture after another. Was he/she invisible?
In addition, AP has a lot of questions to answer regarding how it received a tape showing the execution of an Italian hostage and why it gave it to Al Jazeera and not to the Iraqi government or the Italian embassy. OK, we know Al Jazeera wants Iraq to sink deeper into the mud created by Baathist/Salafist/Wahabi terrorists and this is why the Qatar financed channel acts as a terror mouthpiece. Why would AP act in the same dirty way?
I think a couple of folks were kind enough to accept the concept of “this is an information war”. This guy does.
I’ve finished Natan Sharansky’s The Case For Democracy. Sharansky concludes with a list of dissidents in the “fear societies” who need the free world’s support. Egyptian bloggers? Thinking and speaking freely? Is that not what a free man does?
How do we support him if or when he gets in trouble with the fear society in which he lives?
