Scandals in the Muslim and Western Media

Reader comment on item: How the Cartoon Protests Harm Muslims [by Leading to a Separation of Civilizations]

As mentioned in one of the comments I do agree beating Iraqi children is indeed outrageous. but let me tell you something, at least the media, foremost the British, don't keep quiet about it but show it and those who did it will get their punishment.

In Muslim countries you can beat, kill, rape, rob and blackmail as many people, not only children and women, as you want but nothing comes out because the media is the regime's puppet. If children throw stones at the soldiers (BTW they have never dared to do so with local police and soldiers) they will be either killed or put in prison for life. When there is a scandal whether sex or money in the West the media is sure to bring it out.

Look at Muslim media and tell me what scandals they have reported so far. I am afraid nothing worth mentioning. I would be glad if heard something contradictory.
