Pro-Islamist Fake News?

Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum and a CBN News contributor. He is the author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). 


Picture-3According to a new report, “Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention. The primary ‘witness’ that the mainstream media is using as a source in Syria has been caught staging fake news segments. Recent video evidence proves that ‘Syria Danny,’ the supposed activist who has been begging for military intervention on CNN, is really just a paid actor and a liar.” Go to the link, read it all and decide for yourself.

To be sure, this is not the first time that pro-Islamist media have been accused and/or busted faking things. In Egypt, for example, where the military was trying to save the nation from the violence and chaos the Muslim Brotherhood tried to engulf them in — including unprecedented persecution of Christians — the media, following Al Jazeera, portrayed the Brotherhood and its supporters as innocent victims being slaughtered by an authoritarian military — without bothering to report on all the atrocities the Brotherhood was committing.

For example, there was Al Jazeera’s now infamous footage of a “zombie” — that is, a Muslim Brotherhood supporter supposedly killed by the Egyptian military who unfortuitously comes back to life, first posted here.

Below is another video indicating how such things are all staged — according to Prophet Muhammad’s dictum, “war is deceit.” Right before the camera starts rolling, Brotherhood supporters, holding pro-Morsi signs (in English, for your benefit) start chanting “down, down with military rule!” before going into various dramatic poses indicating they’re being hit while cameramen take snapshots.

While this video has gotten little attention in the West, in Egypt, it has appeared on major, independent media, cited as authentic.

Watch the video and see how “reality” can easily be manufactured in our so-called “Information Age.”

    CNN would have to be the most untrustful news source in the world.

    • defcon 4

      Except for Al Jazeera, or PressTV, but maybe it’s all question of degree.

      • Hass

        Al-Jizzya? they don’t even qualify as a news network. Those dessert monkeys are just the terrorist mainstream mouth piece.

        As for Press TV, where does one start mate?

        • defcon 4

          LOL, I think you meant desert right? But maybe monkeys constitute a kind of dessert in some islamic desert theocracies.

      I think that distinction belongs to MSNBC, but CNN is running a strong second with the addition of 9/11 truther, ex-con and admitted communist Van Jones

      • Hass

        Agreed. The entire MSM can go in that basket too.

  • Navy Vet

    Did you mean the Communist News Network?

      You misspelled it, but I corrected it for you. Ain’t I nice?

    To be sure, this is not the first time that pro-Islamist media have been accused and/or busted faking things.

    Since jihad is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslim in one form or another and since Islam is an extremely totalitarian cult that forbids the freedom of conscience especially when it comes to submission, all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another. Otherwise, they are blasphemous apostates that according to the texts and tenets of Islam must be executed.

    Thus, out of curiosity, could you please explain the process how you arrived at the notion that some jihadists are Islamists, i.e., radicals, while other jihadists are not Islamists, i.e., radicals? Especially, when reality dictates that all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another, unless, of course, you are proclaiming all Muslims to be Islamists because all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another.

      Do you think Raymond Ibrahim isn’t aware of just what Islam represents? I believe he’s a Coptic Christian from Egypt!

        Being a scholar and a Coptic Christian is no excuse for caving in to political correctness, as no matter how you slice it or dice it, it’s still misinformation no matter what. Hell, we fought two wars based on the fantasy-based notion that Islamists were hijacking the “religion of peace”, and both wars inevitably turned into the two biggest strategic blunders ever in American history. Where do you want to draw the line?

          Um, did you ever consider Mr. Ibrahim might have other reasons besides being politically correct to pull his punches about islam0nazism?

          • ObamaYoMoma

            There aren’t any “other” reason that could possibly justify being deliberately politically correct other than someone holding a gun to his head.

    The head of the snake is Russia and China.

    Maybe we can’t take them on directly because of cost and plausible deniabilty and lack of will (because of ignorance).

    But it is like taking a castle, fort, or defense. you take the out works first. You do not have to take the weakest out work first. Just by taking a stronger outwork or position you can get the weaker one reliant on it ti surrender or easily be taken.

    Criticize Bush if you want. Bush took a harder nut to crack, Iraq. As a result Gadddaffi gave up. Gave up his chemical weapons and nuke program.

    If we took Syria, Hezbollah would be in serious jeopardy and would slowly die on the vine. Iran would be isolated. Note I am not for an invasion of Syria. The political will is not there (not in a country that is 33% Republican and 33% Leftist and not with this President).

  • marineh2ominer

    CNN , and anybody else in the world , that supports any part of Islam is an ignorant , uneducated , where Islam is concerned , lazy , because they won’t study and learn just what Islam is all about FOOL .

  • DeShawn

    do yWho do you jewish supremacist snakes in teh grass think y’all are FOOLING? The mainstream media in the US is owned and operated by ZIONIST JEWS. You can try to escapegoat the Muslims, but those of us who have woken up to the jewish question know EXACTLY what you’re doing. Just look at CNN which is owned and run by zionist jew Jeff Zucker. You want to tell me that he’s pro-Muslim? How dumb do you think we goys are?

    • iluvisrael

      go jerk off to your posters of adolf shitler

      • DeShawn

        That’s funny because zionist jews are the closest things to Nazis today, genociding all those Palestinians.

        • iluvisrael

          You’re a Jew hating nobody – get back under your bridge or the psycho ward.

        • defcon 4

          Were you b0rn stupid? Or is it a side-effect of becoming muslime?

        • kertitor

          To DeShawn : you really believe all that cr.p ?

    • Boogies Daddy

      Wow. I’ve never seen that much projection outside of a Cimerama theater.

    • KatieNorcross

      “How dumb do you think we goys are?”

      Very dumb. You buy every anti-Semitic talking point.

      • DeShawn

        No, I RESEARCH what I say, and those are the FACTS, miss. You can go to vnnforum.com and check under the subforum called The Problem to educate yourself about the jewish question. May I also suggest David Duke’s website.

        • iluvisrael

          those are white supremacist sites – keep envying rich and successful Jews for all your problems you weak little girl

        • PrincetonUniversity

          Great sources. NOT!

    • Ron Lewenberg

      Not every nominal Christian or person with a Christian backgrownd is a Christian, or cares about Christians abroad. Many worship money and Marxism. It is no different with Jews. Jews in the media may actually not be Jewish, and even if they are Jewish, they may not care about Israel.

      The transnational class doesn’t care about Israel, just money and leftist causes. Muslims as victims has been the major cause celebre since 9/11.

      Goyim aren’t stupid. Individuals like DeShawn are.

      • DeShawn

        Yeah, you’re obviously a JEW, so it figures that you’d lie about all of this. No jews are a genetic group that has been bread over THOUSANDS of years to lie, cheat, steal, and act as parasites. That’s what the vast majority of you folks do. The big jews doing all the damage ae supported by the little jews. You think you can fool us, but you can’t. The people are waking up to JEWISH CRIME.

        • defcon 4

          Shouldn’t you be banging your head on the floor to allah about now?

        • Ron Lewenberg

          Yes DeShawn, I am a Jew posting under my real name. I am not an untermensch posting under a silly handle.

          Since we Jews are genetically evil, I guess you just want us exterminated. Be honest.

        • kertitor

          Maybe you are right. This terrible Jews are everywhere, they blow up and behead innocent people, they suck dry the West, they protest everywhere carrying posters : Judaism will rule the world, they are using their children and women as human shield….. and on and on.
