Feeling let down by unbalanced U.S. media coverage yet again re: the Norwegian case or Blond-Gate; Remembering the King David bombing July 22 '46- another Zionist terror perpetration that tried to duck the label of terror; and after revisiting Egypt's past on anniversary of Revolution July 23, 1952, a probing look into its future.
Anders Breivik (Norwegian ethnicity) used to write on internet forums and blogs under the alias: "Fjordman", who is literally infamous for his anti-Muslim and pro-Israeli (mainly 'Zionist') posts. A post for The Brussels Journal offers insight into his political mind-frame: Why Europeans Should Support Israel.
Lessons learned from the bombing and mass shooting in Norway
When international terror takes on a Christian-Zionist front, media tones are muted.
"But I also noticed something I haven’t witnessed before in the past 10 years in America. American News Media (Fox, CNN and MSNBC) failed BIG time when it comes to reporting about this incident. Here are my observations:
After the religion and identity of the terrorist was revealed, the American media almost stopped its coverage about the incident. Today and yesterday there was hardly any news about the incident."
Norwegian terrorist is a Christian Zionist.
RIP Amy Winehouse: "27-Club"
Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobaine and now Amy Winehouse – all natural-born talents died at the age of 27 from drug overdose, accident or suicide.
The omnipotence of Al Qaeda and meaninglessness of "Terrorism"
"For much of the day yesterday, the featured headline on The New York Times online front page strongly suggested that Muslims were responsible for the attacks on Oslo; that led to definitive statements on the BBC and elsewhere that Muslims were the culprits. The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin wrote a whole column based on the assertion that Muslims were responsible, one that, as James Fallows notes, remains at the Post with no corrections or updates. The morning statement issued by President Obama -- "It's a reminder that the entire international community holds a stake in preventing this kind of terror from occurring" and "we have to work cooperatively together both on intelligence and in terms of prevention of these kinds of horrible attacks" -- appeared to assume, though (to its credit) did not overtly state, that the perpetrator was an international terrorist group. "
A terrorist by any other name is: a freedom fighter, a liberator, a martyr, a prime minister,...
A picture taken July 22, 1946 shows the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, which housed the British Headquarters, damaged after a bombing attack against the British government by members of Irgun, a Zionist terrorist group headed by Menachem Begin. Many attacks by Zionist groups occured as a response to the British policy of restricting Jewish immigration to Palestine.
"Most striking to me was that no one mentioned Oslo's role in the (failed) Oslo Accords to try to resolve the Palestine-Israel crisis. Moreover, no one mentioned the day as falling on the anniversary of the bombing of the King David Hotel, specifically the British military headquarters in the then British Mandate of Palestine, by the Zionist terrorist group, the Irgun, fighting for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine--Israel. An inconvenient truth?"
The Norway massacre and the nexus of Islamophobia and right-wing Zionism
"Details on the culprit behind yesterday's massacre in Norway, which saw car bombings in Oslo and a mass shooting attack on the island of Utoya that caused the deaths of at least 91 people, have begun to emerge. While it is still too early for a complete portrait of the killer, Anders Behring Breivik, there are enough details to begin to piece together what's behind the attack. "
The big picture for Egypt's future
"Maria Golia's latest al-Masri al-Youm column, on developmental choices Egypt faces, makes a case for prioritizing environmental considerations. It's a sobering reminder that there are so much more important things at stake that the micro-debates over elections or constitution first and how much Sharia law there should be in the constitution:"
