“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Where are all these fictitional "moderate Muslims" we keep hearing about?

In the wake of the worst attack in France since WWII, moderate Muslims by the thousands marched in protest of the terrorists who share their religion. Claimed one brave marcher, "We stand in solidarity with our adopted French brothers and in defiance of the vermin who......"

Oh wait.

You did not look very hard, did you, Ed?


After ISIS claimed responsibility for the Friday terror attacks in Paris that killed more than 120 people, Muslims around the world are speaking out against Islamic extremists.

In Mumbai, India, Muslims gathered Monday to protest the violence, displaying signs that read, "We hate ISIS terrorism" and "We stand with Paris." Protestors also trampled on an effigy of a member of ISIS.

To what demonstrations do you refer Isaac, where literally tens of Muslims meekly voiced opposition to violence in the name of jihad, despite their religions specifically calling for it, and only then when asked I'm sure?

The link would have answered all your questions, Ed. But, hey, why seek out knowledge when you can wallow in smug stereotyping.

If they were significant enough to amount to anything beyond perfunctory, the media would have covered it. And the American media is nothing if not pro-ISlam.

"...the American media is nothing if not pro-ISlam (sic)."

Silly me. And here I thought that the sentiments of the American legacy media, in the main, tilted more toward 32° 5′ 0″ N, 34° 48′ 0″ E than toward 21°25′35″ N, 39°49′32″ E.

Sorry, I left my handy dandy GPS locator at home, is one of these locations Mecca?

Isaac A. Nussbaum said...

But of course.

POINT/COUNTERPOINT: a contrasting view on which way the American dinosaur media leans.

[Naftali] Bennett: "Anyone who lifts a hand against Israel must die."
Denis R. O'Brien, PhD/Esq.

The fact that control of the American corporate media is dominated by [the likes of] Stu Schwartz, Ben Sherwood, Michael Bloomberg, Lesslie Moonvie, and Jeff Zuker almost guarantees that you have never heard of Fadi Hoosh, a 22-yo Palestinian man who was torched and burnt to a crisp this week in the garbage dump of Kafr Kanna in the West Bank by Israeli settlers.

It was another "price tag" attack, which is the name given to terrorist attacks carried out by Israeli settlers in Jerusalem and the West Bank intended to drive Palestinians out of their homeland. "Price tag" because such is the price the Palestinians pay for refusing to flee their homeland.

American media don't carry most of these terrorist attacks by [Israelis], which happen virtually every day, although not all of them are fatal. But of course, American corporate media -- Jewish controlled media -- are very quick to report on any knife attacks by Palestinians, which are understandable responses to the price tag murders. Because Americans only get one side of the larger Palestine/Israel story, they are understandably left with the impression that the poor [Israelis] are victims of crazed Palestinians. Therein is the power of controlling the media, which is to say, controlling the message.
