Washington Post Publishes Radical Islamic Propaganda
For a special article on Islam and Women, the Washington Post today gives column space to an utterly deranged, hard-core Islamofascist sympathizer, Yvonne Ridleywithout identifying her as anything but the political editor of Islam TV.
And its titled: How I Came to Love the Veil. Ridleys premise is that Islam respects women much more than the Western world.
I think the mainstream media cant possibly surprise me any more. Then they do something like this.
Yvonne Ridley is a member of George Galloways RESPECT party, and has written numerous essays defending Islamic terrorism. She described those murdered in last years terrorist attacks in Jordan as collaborators. She wrote,I think Id rather put up with a brother like Abu Musab al-Zarqawi any day than have a traitor or sell-out for a father, son or grandfather.She described Shamil Basaev, the mastermind of the massacre of Russian school children at Beslan, as a Shaheed, or martyr.
This is mainstream media at its absolute worst, promoting the propaganda of radical Islamists without even a hint of context. If theyre going to publish this crap, at the very least they should tell us who is writing it. What the hell is wrong with the Washington Post?
The Posts ombudsman is Deborah Howell, and she can be reached at 202-334-7582 or at [email protected]. Contact the Washington Post and let them know what you think about this outrage.
