Media at the point of terrorists' guns.

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict
in response to reader comment: THE WESTERN MEDIA FEARS ISLAM!

Submitted by Moshe (Israel), Oct 3, 2006 at 04:34

Dear Stephen,

In Islam controlled areas all media are at the terrorists' mercy. Their right of existence in those places is conditional upon the "quality" of their reporting, i.e. how well they serve the perceived interests of their Jihadist masters. And naturally all the rest of the Western chains bow in to the same ruthless pressure system. As soon as they dare to displease the local Muslim warlords they better don't show their faces in those places again or else they risk turning home in caskets - or not turning home at all.

Therefore I consider your call: "Do yourself a favor and DON'T BELIEVE A SINGLE WORD SPOKEN BY THE WESTERN MEDIA CONCERNING ISLAM AND THE MIDDLE EAST! It's all lies." ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!
