Indymedia Supporting Terrorists (again)
Al-Manar is the Lebanese TV outlet of Hezbollah and has been placed on the list of terrorist organizations by the U.S and several other countries.
Rusty Shackleford observed some time ago that:
The French-based media group, Reporters Sans Frontieres (Reporters Without Borders), has condemned the U.S. actions by stating that al-Manar doesn't broadcast terrorist propaganda all the time, sometimes they do news reporting.Uh huh. And I'm sure Osama bin Laden doesn't like to blow people up all the time and sometimes likes to play backgammon.
Anyway, according to BC Indymedia:
Since it's removal from the airwaves - most notably those airwaves serving America and Europe, the singular voice of sanity and truth, amidst the lies and misdirection of the mass media was silenced ... or so it was thought.Indeed. Terrorists organizations can always count on Indymedia for support.
al-Manar Television is an important resouce, not just for the Lebonese, Arabs or Muslims, but for all people who are striving to find and obtain the Truth, their programming is well presented, extremely well researched, and always as unbiased and fair as is humanly possible.Just like Indymedia...
Via MEMRI comes but a few examples of precisely why Al-Manar and its message has no place in society:
- Hizbullah Leader Hassan Nasrallah: Death to America.
- Mothers of Hizbullah "Martyrs": We Are Very Happy And Want to Sacrifice More Children
- Deputy Leader of Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt: 'a nation that does not excel at the industry of death does not deserve life.'
And just in case you want to argue that they're not terrorists, they seem pretty comfortable with the idea:
Hizbullah's Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah: We Would Rather Remain a "Terrorist Organization" Than Lay Down Our Arms
I'm sure that since this material is interspersed with sports news and music clips, it's okay by Reporters Sans Frontieres. It sure isn't with me!
This is not the first time Indymedia has shilled for terrorists. I previously reported on Indymedia serving as a propaganda outlet for Hezbollah. Read it and see just how "unbiased and fair" they were.
this disgusting thread, read comments by Josephine Kuchera
'Free speech' is ONLY for pro-nazis on the imc. But when I tryed to answer to Kuchera - MY anti-racist post has been delete, but her nazi-filth is still visible
If you can't say it in two or three paragraphs, please say it elsewhere.
