Yet, the media reporting goes against that theory. Like the video shows, they go out of their way to deflect the possibility of Islamic terror. when
they can no longer do that, they make excuses to dismiss it.
The bogyman seems to be the American people these days. Especially those who oppose big government.
It is the government of the American people that drive the lack of media reporting of the extent of Islamic terrorism in the world today. All
governments seek to pacify the people, keep them ignorant and therefore easier to control. People who fear invasion or attack of whatever sort are
more dangerous and unpredicatable than those who's only real worries are small time everyday or personal in nature.
It was not until 911 that America was forced to take note because until that point, Islamic terrorism on American soil was either non existent or was
In the UK in the 1980's, our media was 'free-er'. Journalists were respected for seeking and exposing the truth. We had a lot of Islamic 'bogey
man' creation in our media. We were shown images of hate filled Iranians burning effigies of Amercan presidents and flag, telling us all about how
Gaddafi funded Islamic uprisings in Africa, took hostages on our soil and tried cosying up to the Ruskies who were at war on Afghan soil. We also
heard about how the (afghan) Mujahideen warlords condemned the west and how Khomeni called America the 'great whore' and how the House of Saude and
Sultan of Brunii were the ubber-rich. (Was any of this widely reported in the American media?)
In the mid to late 80's, much of our venerated Daily News papers were bought by foreign interests with personal agenda's and the news became dumbed
down. Then in 1990 the news blackout and outright misreporting of a large public demonstration in London raised my aware ness of the extent of
government control of the independent media, (the BBC are entirely taxpayer/government funded)
Nowadays, UK media is dumbed down, obsessed with celebrity (I include the broadsheets in this; they tend to focus on more accomplished individuals but
they court media tarts just like the tabloids) and is happy to report outright lies as news.
Khomeni called for a global Islamic state and declared Jihad on the west. But we did not see what we understood as war. We saw random acts of
terrorism, globally, long before 911, we saw mass immigration and the growth of mosques on western soil and we saw moslems seeking positions of power
within our established institutions.
Were I a journalist, I do not know how I would convey the evidence of the silent invasion of the West and expose the nature of soft terrorism and I
applaud those journalists who try. That the editors and their handlers may not publish must be quite disheartening for some.
