Reader comment on item: Mali: Target Islam?

Submitted by rom (Luxembourg), Feb 5, 2013 at 03:25

France is pushing the islamic fascists back to the middle of nowhere. Justly so. And France's engagement in Mali is both legitimate and legal. Legal because the government of Mali asked France to come to their help and legitimate because it is a morally justified cause. While France's president gets a heroe's welcome by the people of Mali, these last few days, the iranian news channel PressTV is actually agitating against France's humanitarian mission (=yes that is what it is in my opinion), by calling it "neo-colonialism", and accusing France of hiding its true interest, which in their opinion is " stealing Mali's natural resources".

PressTV is always inviting such bizarre interviewees, with even more bizarre views, but they are welcome to spew hatred against each and everything "western", as long as it serves the iranian fascist's anti-western progaganda!

Kudos to France!
