CBC - Keep the Misinformation Strong

Today Neil Macdonald, a true non-expert on Islam, provided an article on Obama' attempt to bring a little bit of needed perspective to the world news, that CBC tries so hard to keep skewed against Muslims.

Why Barack Obama won't say 'Islamic extremists'

Macdonald keeps the skewing alive and well. Let's face it - Israel needs the world to hate Muslims and CBC does what Israel wants.

Nowhere does Macdonald acknowledge the facts: 1) in the 20th century every Muslim territory came under the colonial control of Christian countries and thus they are in a position of weakness and humiliation; 2) Christian religious extremists, and there are plenty of them in the US Military are involved in the mass murdering of Muslims in the Middle East; 3) we don't call them Christianist extremists, nor do we call the rabid Israeli settlers - Judaist extremists; and it goes on.

What Obama is trying, feebly, to do is right and good, and CBC and Macdonald are supporting the warmongers and forces of evil as usual

I'm Back and so is the Nutty Yahoo

After almost two months in Southeast Asia, on board ship with spotty Internet access, I am now back. I have no doubt that during this time has made its usual great effort to keep the Canadian public misinformed on the Middle East, but unfortunately I have not been around to record it.

But here is another small example:

Why does this story deserve the profile it is getting? What civilized person cares what Netanyahu thinks or says? And if CBC must give profile to his war-mongering nonsense, why can"t CBC balance it with a little bit of truth and sense? As a minimum, CBC should add to the short article facts like:

- Israel has nuclear weapons, and is run by fanatical, racist people who cannot be trusted with them. Before we obsess too much on Iran getting nuclear weapons, the world should worry a lot more about Israel's possession of them.

- If any world leader has no right to call attention to another country's nuclear ambitions, it is Netanyahu. His credibility on this issue is zero.

- Iran has never threatened to annihilate Israel, nor is there even the slightest chance that it would use nuclear weapons against Israel if they had them. Israel is the home of Iran's holy sites and they would never bomb them.

- Netanyahu screams loudest about Iran when he sees Israel's reputation going down the toilet because the truth is finally getting out about his country, and he needs to deflect interest away from Israel.

- Netanyahu wants war -and more war -and more war, and he is against any kind of PEACE, or Justice, or even DECENCY in the Middle East. 

Netanyahu should be treated with the same respect as Kim Jong Un of North Korea - as a dangerous crackpot, who must be feared but never trusted or respected, and certainly not given headline, respectful treatment like in this CBC article.
