Barry Rubin: Pledges Not Made, Fairness Not Met
Another, excellent article from Barry Rubin, sent to us via e-mail: Musings on Media Coverage
In an effort to appease Arab regimes and placate Pan-Arabists, British wire service Al-Reuters uses the false name of “Arab Gulf” instead of the universally-recognized “Persian Gulf”. Today, the Mullahs in Iran have one more pretext to fuel conspiracy theories.

What is really amazing about something like this Los Angeles Times editorial (see below) is that those writing it don’t have the least consciousness of the fact that in Arab and Palestinian media, books, politics, etc., there is not the slightest acknowledgement to anything Israelis and Jews say, feel, or have experienced is acknowledged in any way. In other words, they and others demand that Israel be completely balanced–and criticize anything that appears not to be–while not demanding anything of the other side. I might add that I am not opposed to a passage being put in Israeli textbooks saying that the Arabs consider the creation of Israel a disaster for themselves.
A What-Bias Alert. Jerusalem is the historical and eternal capital of Israel. But AFP (Agence For Palestinians) says it is “occupied territory”, thus legitimazing Palestinian separatist claims on the city.
The BBC is refusing to delete an anti-semitic message wrote by an unknown individual on their message board. However, anti-radical Islam comments are forbidden. Amazing.
Palestinians pick up what they sowed. Welcome to the Islamist state of Hamas . The Palestinians, a death cult, violent and war-mongering society, could just realize how wrong they were when they murdered Jews to force Israel out of Gaza. And they could start asking Israel to return. On the one side, Israel’s Olmert administration caved in and left Gaza, ignoring the consequences for Israel and the region as a whole. Its far from being a victory for Israel; Gaza is going to be an Al-Qaeda state. Israel should have never handed over Gaza to the Palestinians. The int.l community is desperately looking for a solution. Theirs are crocodile tears. After all, it’s them who pressed Israel to leave the place. Now what? Hard to say. It’s a civil war, but the world community would do good not to send in the ‘peacekeepers’. Let the Palestinians slaughter each other. Yes, that’s what they do best. That’s their raison d’etre. Don’t send our men in uniform to risk their life to save who loves death over life and war over peaceful coexistance. Also, as Magdi Allam says, this situation proves that there will never be a Palestinian state. Because it’s the Palestinians themselves who never wanted it. All they want is the destruction of Israel. And let me say something: I fear for Israel. I fear for her, because I feel as if they are committing suicide. An Islamist state at her doors will only speed up her destruction. Unless Israel elects credible leaders with guts, its end is inevitable. I pray for Israel and for it to wake up sooner than later. You can’t make peace or concessions, let alone talk with who wants to destroy you. You have to act. Wake up, Israel, pls. Re-occupy Gaza. Use your military might. Destroy Hamas, Fatah and the Islamic Jihad. Plug your ears in order not to hear the international community that led to this situation. Enter Gaza to stay. But don’t do it for the Palestinians. Do it for your survival. And to the world: don’t send in men to die for a death cult society. Rather, send them where they’re urgently needed: Darfur. Because there is where people cannot wait too long.

Sderot: Still Under Fire. Israelis continue to suffer as a woman loses her life to a Qassam missile
People of Sderot, I am with you. Sderot residents call for action in Gaza. Poll reveals 71 percent of Sderot residents want military action in Gaza Strip, even if it means increased Qassam attacks; 94 percent blame government for poor security situation. A woman was killed by a rocket and Israel did its duty by fighting back and targetting Qassam cells. According to the Italian FM, Israel should simply sit back and stand idly by while the Nazis massacre the Jews. Here’s a short videoclip showing a Qassam rocket falling right next to a Sderot gas station.

La linea dura contro il terrorismo paga. Lo dimostra un rapporto dell’ FBI, che rivela che gli Hezbollah hanno deciso di non colpire gli Usa, perchè sanno che la risposta americana sarebbe decisiva ed infliggerebbe un duro colpo all’organizzazione nazi-islamica. Questo dimostra ancora una volta che il rischio maggiore di attentati lo incorrono tutti quei paesi che pagano riscatti o cedono in qualche modo al terrorismo. Se le nazioni democratiche insieme la smettessero di coccolare i terroristi, forse a quest’ora staremmo vincendo.

Avrete sicuramente sentito i telegiornali italiani parlare solo di Hillary Clinton. E’ stranoto che i media nostrani facciano il tifo per la cornuta moglie di Bill, con la scusa che sarebbe la prima donna presidente. Visto che di primati si tratta, perchè ad esempio i tg non dicono che anche Giuliani batterebbe un record storico? Infatti, sarebbe il prima italo-americano presidente Usa. E, stando a quasi tutti i recenti sondaggi, lui batterebbe di gran lunga sia la Clinton che gli altri candidati democratici. Per chi non lo sapesse, Giuliani è sì un uomo con le palle in politica estera (e non si farebbe influenzare dagli isterismo europei ed onusiani, come sta facendo Bush); egli è anche favorevole al diritto all’aborto, all’eutanasia,alle unioni civili ed alla ricerca sulle cellule staminali embrionali. Ecco perchè è molto amato anche dai non repubblicani. Ovviamente, ci saranno le nomination sia democratiche che repubblicane. E stando ai sondaggi tra i repubblicani, lui non avrebbe difficoltà a vincere la nomination per la corsa alla Casa Bianca. Se di record si deve parlare, i media italiani comincino a parlare anche di Giuliani. A meno che non vogliano nascondere agli italiani il fatto che ad ancora un’ anno e mezzo dal voto, Giuliani è gia in testa a quasi tutti.

Magdi Allam: La lezione del tunisino che vuole eliminare i governanti. In un saggio ha scritto: «Oggi ci sono governanti lacchè dell’imperialismo e per questo bisogna ucciderli». Rached Ghannouchi, già espulso, al convegno di Napoli sui «musulmani democratici». Per chi non lo sapesse, costui è un’imam fondamentalista di Londra, che ha emesso una fatwa che invita i suoi sostenitori a cercare ed uccidere i mussulmani laici e riformisti che invocano la riforma dell’Islam e la democratizzazione delle loro società. Va detto che tra questi riformisti ci sono sia intellettuali di sinistra (come Lafif) che di destra. Non importa il colore politico. Si tratta di aiutare questi illuministi a vincere la battaglia per la laicizzazione del mondo islamico. Ringrazio Magdi per aver portato all’attenzione dei lettori italiani circa la presenza di tale personaggio quale Rachid Ghannouchi.Ho appena contattato Abu Khawla,ccordinatore della Campagna Internazionale per salvare Lafif Lakhdar dalla condanna a morte emessa proprio da tale Ghannouchi. Ho chiesto ad Abu se è possibile tradurre in inglese l’editoriale in questione e pubblicarlo su Middle East Trasparent. In seguito, verrà pubblicato sul blog dedicato a Lafif Lakhdar, dove ci si potrà rendere conto di chi è l’inquisitore islamico invitato al convegno di Napoli.

While the world focuses on the nuclear issue, the Islamic Republic’s Taliban prepares to flood the Sivand Dam, part of Iran’s and Mankind’s Cultural Heritage dating back to the pre-Islamic era. The world stood idle by while Afghanistan’s Taliban destroyed the Bamyaan Buddha statues. It is standing idle by while the Islamic regime prepares to commit what it is for sure a crime against humanity. The Islamic regime is taking a major step to destroy Iran and its rich cultural heritage, while the world even allows unscrupulous people to sell and buy pieces of Iranian monuments. What is next? Will the civilized people allow the destruction of part of the mankind’s treasure? Where is the UNESCO? Below are images from a peaceful demonstrations of Iranians in Iran, protesting against the announced flooding of part of their cultural heritage.

According to a report published on the Italian scientific review ‘Newton’, the most known planets of the Solar System, Yupiter, Mars, and Saturn, are suffering from the very same ills as the Earth. Temperatures are rising, hurricans are increasing in number. According to the report, these problems are due to the increase in the Sun’s energy on the mentioned planets (including the Earth). Thus, the man is not guilty. The Kyoto Protocol is meaningless.Read the report here (It’s in Italian, but you may try to translate it by using that nonsense named ‘Babelfish’ to get an idea of what the article writes about).

Daniel Pipes: Terribile rapporto di James Baker sull’Iraq
I am really disgusted in seeing the way the mainstream media (MSM) is reporting the news. First, I read al-AP insulting the Iranian nation and millions of Iranians (no confusion with the regime, pls) by calling the historical Persian Gulf as “Arab Gulf” (the sheikhs must be jumping of joy after reading it) and then, almost all the MSM (AP, Reuters, CNN, BBC, AFP) calling Rafsanjani, the MURDERER OF THOUSANDS, INCLUDING DISSIDENTS IN EUROPE and MASTERMIND of the 1993 bombings in Argentina, as “moderate” ! But don’t be surprised, these are the very same media which refer to Bin Laden as “Saudi dissident” and refuse to call terrorists as terrorists, preferring to appease them by calling them “militants”, “rebels” and, I guess they will soon or later call them “frustrated poor people seeking revenge against the bad evil Zionists and Americans”. Not to mention the LIES the media are reporting about the so-called “elections” in Iran, claiming about a sort of “larger than expected turnout in Iran’s elections” and stupidities of this kind ( the Mullahs must be jumping of joy seeing how they are able to manipulate the foreign media). Again, don’t be surprised: AP and Reuters (to name a few) are the very same which have fabricated photos during the Lebanon war this summer (I hope you remember the Fauxtography Scandal).

Secondo un rapporto, l’estremismo islamico attecchisce molto di meno negli Usa che in Europa. Questo perchè, negli Usa i mussulmani si integrano e vengono assimilati, e sono molto meno religiosi. In Europa, invece, si fa sempre più strada . Per fortuna che mi devo trasferire a lavorare negli Usa fra un anno e mezzo.

My friend Maximo José from eastern Cuba, miliant of the Cuban Liberal Movement, sent me the following message:

Que contento me he puesto cuando te pasé este mensaje, se de ti através de Sergio y los demas hermanos muchas,gracias por preocuparte por mi.Tuve problemas en la internet entré en una pagina prohibida y me van a sancionar pero mientras tanto he resuelto en otro lugar claro los turnos son mas distantes pero puedes dejarme el mensaje pero mientras mandame mensajes con Sergio o Ricardo para saber de ti yo me pongo muy conrento mira si estas en la maguina hazmelo saber para darte una noticia. Saludos Maxímo.
Maximo denounces that his wife is desperate because their 5-year-old son is being brainwashed in the Castro’s communist schools and is aggressive with her parents and even his grandmother, because the latter lives in the U.S., a country the Cuban schoolchildren are told as being “imperialist” and “terrorist”.

The first Congress of the Independent Libraries organized by the Assembly to Promote Civil Society is underway across Cuba, and despite the brutal repression the librarians are facing. The Assembly to Promote the Civil Society is civil society coalition of 365 Cuban opposition movements that fight peacefully for democratic and regime change in the island. From Octuber 10, 2006, to February 2007, a meeting of the 152 independent libraries is taking place in numerous Cuban towns and cities. They are informing the population about the goals of the civil desobedience and non-cooperation campaigns named “Yo no coopero, yo si quiero el cambio” (I don’t cooperate with the repressive authorities, I want the change). The official motto is “We are gathering for democracy”. Banned books, reviews, leaflets are being distribuited to the neighbors of the libraries where the meetings are taking place and to the population at large. There will be special events with youths and children, too.
Martha Beatriz Roque Cabello from Havana sent us these first photos showing the librarians and libraries gathered in Congress for Democracy.

A group of Cubans who landed on pilings along a nearly 3-mile span of the former bridge on Jan. 4 when their boat reached an abandoned bridge in the Florida Keys, are seen walking toward the Refugee Office of the U.S. Interests mission in Havana, Cuba, Monday, Oct. 2, 2006. A federal judge ruled that the U.S. government acted unreasonably when it sent home 15 Cubans who thought they had safely made it to the United States. U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno ordered the federal officials to ‘use their best efforts’ to help the immigrants return to the United States but they are still awaiting permission from the Cuban regime to leave the country.

EU Commission President disappointed at lack of EU support for Pope
Informazione Corretta: Il Papa secondo Tariq Ramadan.REPUBBLICA di oggi, 23/09/2006, a pag.16, pubblica una intervista di Riccardo Staglianò con Tariq Ramadan, argomento Papa Benedetto XVI. Ramadan è un intellettuale musulmano, colto, vive in Svizzera, conosce bene come ci si comporta in Europa se si vuole essere ascoltati. Per questo è molto più pericoloso di un Nasrallah qualunque. Non a caso gli USA gli hanno vietato il visto di ingresso. Da noi ha (quasi) tutti i media a disposizione. Nell’intervista che segue esce un ritratto del Papa come piace a Ramadan (e a REPUBBLICA), per fortuna diverso dal Papa di Ratisbona.
