Media Twisting Things Again

Recommended Posts

It is amazing how the media twist words...if this was a Muslim he would be deemed a terrorist but the media have still managed to get Islam in somehow deeming him an anti Islam militant - therefore it still puts Islam in the picture in a negative way

 

OSLO (Reuters) - Anti-Islam militant Anders Behring Breivik appears bent on turning a Norwegian court into a "circus" show for his views when he goes on trial on Monday for killing 77 people, reopening wounds in the traditionally tolerant and tranquil nation.

And if we put this beside another news story of the guy Merah in France who killed 3 Jewish people and 2 Muslims the wording is completely different. Even though they both killed people, Merah is the radicalised terrorist in the majority of news articles while Breivik is just Breivik or in some articles he is a mass killer. Breivik isn't the Christian mass killer but always in articles about Merah it has to be mentioned that he is a Muslim - but what is the difference of what they both did the principle is the same as they killed people but it is clear that the majority of the media does not care about this

Oh yeah, hadnt been paying enough attention to news websites recently :(

 

Anyhoo getting back to the main gist or your post.

 

1 was inspired by religious belief/duty, the other 1 doesnt appear to be.

 

Or maybe you care to explain how amd what motivated Merah?

Breivik was 'inspired by duty' whats the difference? He wanted to prevent multiculturalism...both of them had their own ideology so I don't see the difference - its the principle they both killed people yet the media portrays one as the Muslim terrorist while the other is the mass killer. Breivik considered himself a conservative Christian but that is not brought into the equation.

ppl are killing themselves and others in the name of 1 religion more than other religions?

 

When buddists and christains start doing more terrorist attacks im sure u will see them branded like wise.

it's more than clear that some sect of people who have a specific ideology are insisting to control most of the global Media and no one dare to ask why is that?

 

Sure they want to spread the ideas they want. They can make the theories as a proven facts and the facts as a absurdities, this is good and that is bad, this is effective and that is ignored...... the most strange thing that i just red, they are spreading a hidden messages to the children in the Cartoons.

 

Allah tells in the Quran, about the Jews,

017.006 Y: Then did We grant you the Return as against them: We gave you increase in resources and sons, and made you the more numerous in man-power, numerous band, soldiery (naffera, نفيرا).

the original Arabic word is (naffera, نفيرا) which is the high voice of the horns, that can give indication of the war instruments and could mean a higher voice in media.

 

Assuming the case of a specific scientific verse in the Quran: comparing a non-professional scientist who seems to be ((convincing)) in a famous Media channel and famous program, attacking such verse, and a professional, long history, good reputation scientist who take about the same verse, BUT, in the available local media…………who will have a higher voice? Ho will reach many many more people? Who will have more tructability??

 

Here is an example:

http://www.gawaher.com/topic/737834-media-tactics-to-disgrace-Islam/

it is a closed circle, more control of media---- more control of (facts)---- more control of people--- giving more tructability to Media-----more effect ----more control

Yes that is right...it is like how Lauren Booth was saying when she was a journalist before she became a Muslim and she wanted to write something about her trip to Gaza , an article which was more positive on Muslim women and the hijab and she said that no editor would allow her to write that article and she tried for 2 years and not even a womans magazine would accept it- people forget that newspapers and magazines etc have editors, nothing just goes in because the journalist wants it to go in - there is a hierarchy of power within the global media.
