Roundup Of Dhimmitude In Western Media


This is a sister post to
Roundup Of Western Government-Enforced Dhimmitude.

Question) What happens when the news and entertainment media in a free nation decides to whitewash or obfuscate (or omit altogether) vital information concerning groups that are seeking to subvert that nation's liberty, and who are affiliated with or supportive of others who wish to install a totalitarian system in its place, through violence and intimidation?

Answer) That nation is inevitably and steadily moving towards its own self-destruction.

This is exactly what is happening in America and other Western nations.

Journalists and producers who otherwise feel free to expose, attack and vilify any other target whose views they disagree with* come to a dead stop when it comes to exposing radical and militant Islamism, with the same intensity and vigor that they apply to their other targets. (*Almost invariably supporters of laissez-faire capitalism, a strong, proactive national defense, robust defense of First and Second Amendment rights, and anyone who opposes the socailist super-state trends in our culture)

This blogthread will be dedicated to exposing breaches of this type, and to the devastating, real-world consequences that media dhimmitude can and does lead to.

I'm not the only one saying this: Here are two Muslims --- both medical doctors, but of profoundly different backgrounds --- who attest to the impact of media dhimmitude:

M. Zuhdi Jassar, a Muslim reformer, physician and retired Lt. Commander in the U.S. Navy, dared to speak out against militant Islamists in a documentary that PBS funded, but which it now refuses to air. In this biting criticism of PBS --- and of the mentality that underlies the whitewashing of radical Islamism that only contributes to throwing fuel on the fire of "political correctness" or "multiculturalism" --- this courageous American has put his life on the line to speak out. Maybe PBS will get a spinal installation that will result in their having half of his courage.

Tawfik Hamid, another Muslim physician and former Islamist terrorist, warns Western nations against their propensity to coddle radical Muslims, and their perpetual fear of "offending" them by exposing the true nature of what they are doing, in
this recent Wall Street Journal article.

Keeping all this in mind, read on --- and ask yourself, if you were a journalist, would you make these decisions?

Note: Hat tips to fans of JQWorld who've sent in stories, and to the real heavy-lifters who document these things, primarily JihadWatch, DhimmiWatch, LittleGreenFootballs, AtlasShrugs2000 and BrusselsJournal.

Dhimmitude In The U.S. Media:

Active dhimmitude --- The willingness to play stories in such a way as to conceal the true nature of what's being presented

Big US news media devote less than 10 seconds on May 11 morning shows to "six New Jersey men" accused of planning to assault Ft. Dix... not identified as Muslims, nor half as being illegal aliens --- but lots of time to Wal-Mart annual sales, Phil Specter trial, etc... (developing)

Big US news media downplaying or ignoring stories about jihadists' plans for "war on the streets" in America; more here; (At time of this disclosure, 5/6/07: More important stories for MSM to cover: Paris Hilton's new jailhouse adventure, "American Idol" contestants, "SpiderMan 3" box office revenue)

Vermont cable TV operator to now carry alJazeera, al Quada's favorite TV network "I think it’s more mainstream and more objective than CNN,” says executive.

Newsweek plays good dhimmi for the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the world's most notorious Islamist terrorism-justifiers and -enablers (more here)

Reuters: Perpetuating the lie that Palestinians have been observing "truce" with (evil!) Israel

NY Times & BBC: Surrendering To Jihad --- Again, and Again, and Again...

PBS Dhimmitude, Part 1, and Part II

Diane Sawyer and ABC give Iranian madman president a propaganda
platform he couldn't buy with $100 million
; JQWorld analysis & commentary here

The infamous Hezbollah (MSM) "fauxtography" scandal

Passive dhimmitude --- Ignoring stories involving militant Islamism/Islamist terrorism, and instead devoting time/space to stories of absolutely no consequence

Hamas statement: Extermination of Jews is "good for the world"

Jihadists blow up 20 video shops in Pakistan

Radical Islam being "taught" in at least 13 U.S. universities, courtesy of funding by (surprise!) Saudi Arabia; U.S. news media: "Yawn"

Reformed militant Islamists speak out at Stanford University; MSM: "Yawn" --- no coverage

MSM-advertised "peaceful, tolerant, dialogue-seeking" former Iranian president Mohammed Khatami tells journalist, "Go to hell!" MSM: ***crickets***

JQWorld analysis & commentary: MSM: What Betrayal By Hezbollah, Condi Rice, The UN And Lebanon??? The Ramsey Case Is Solved!!!

JQWorld analysis & commentary:
MSM: What 3 Muslim Men With 1,000 Untraceable Cell Phones In The USA?

Dhimmitude In The Media of Other Western Nations:

Active dhimmitude --- The willingness to play stories in such a way as to conceal the true nature of what's being presented

AP misrepresents, downplays violence being committed in France by followers of... no particular religion, in wake of Sarkozy victory

French TV: We will not broadcast the true extent of violence, assaults, car-burnings perpetrated by those of... no particular religion, so as to "not encourage far-right politicians" (2005)

Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) love-in with terror-preaching, female-dominating, liberty-hating Islamist cleric (ht LGF); background info here

BBC reportedly apologizes to Iran for saying it "abducted" 15 British sailors, and called them "hostages"


When will it all end?

It will begin to end when people in America and other Western nations begin to hold their news & entertainment media accountable for the way in which they whitewash, obfuscate or deny the reality of militant Islamism --- including political Islamism.

The most effective way to do this is by writing, emailing and calling the producers of this Islamist-biased media. If that doesn't work, then citizens have every right to hit them where it hurts: in the wallet. If the advertisers that support these news & entertainment media outlets realize that viewers & readers are going to stop patronizing them, then maybe things will start changing.

JonQuixoteWorld will be on the lookout for the day that the media in America and other Western nations finally decide to take a principled stand against Islamist pressure groups and their intimidation campaigns.
