By : mohamed Younis - Wednesday February 8, 2006
9 comments
As you all know that Islam and Muslims respect all religions and the means of media in Islamic countries did not contempt any religion. That respect is a basic rule in Islam, as can be concluded from many verses in the holly Quraan, For example the verse 108 says:- . The Danish newspaper (Jyllands Posten ) exposed to Islam and prophet Mohammed in insolent and sarcasm method. If one recalls that , according to Islamic faith, drawing images of the prophet is not allowed he can imagine (...)

Muslim-Bashing and the Power of Cartoons
By : William Hughes - Sunday February 5, 2006
Shame on the European newspapers for publishing grossly disrespectful cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the founder of Islam. One of the original 12 cartoons, which were all first published in a Danish tabloid, in Sept., 2005, showed him wearing a turban shaped like a bomb with a burning fuse. Some of the offensive cartoons were then reprinted in other newspapers in European countries. (1) How would Christians like it, if someone showed Jesus, the "Prince of Peace," with an H-bomb (...)

Dear UN Secretary General I am writing to you asking you to act, according to your responsibilities, to stop the waves of insults and sarcasms about the Prophet Mohamed that are appearing in European media under the slogan of “ freedom of expression”. We all know that freedom must extend freely until it must stop where and when it offends other people. The insulting cartoon images published by the Danish newspaper Julland Posten and republished by other Swedish and recently (...)

Preparing the World For Another 9/11

Signs of the Times Joe Quinn 03/02/2006 What are we to make of the "furore" surrounding the publishing of anti-Islam cartoons by Dutch and French daily papers? The intent seems clear enough - to portray Islam, and therefore all Muslims as fanatic terrorists, and to provoke Muslim groups to confirm for the world that this portrayal is accurate - which is exactly what has happened. Flag and effigy burning has ensued in Pakistan, Indonesia, and the Palestine territories. In Iran, hundreds of (...)

"LIBERAL" ICON WILSON : HOW I MET BOB (VERSIONS 1 and 2)

I don’t understand Former Ambassador Wilson’s recounting of how he met the Prince of Darkness , syndicated columnist Bob Novak. In the Vanity Fair profile on the Wilsons ("Double Exposure " , Jan. 2004) we hear this version of events : " But Wilson was CAUGHT OFF GUARD when he received a phone call from Robert Novak , (July 9, 2003 ) who according to Wilson, said he’d been told by a CIA source that Wilson’s wife worked for the CIA.

Editing Chavez to Manufacture a Slur. Some outlets spread spurious charges of anti-Semitism
By : Fair - Tuesday January 24, 2006

It began with a bulletin from the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles (1/4/06) accusing Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez of invoking an old anti-Semitic slur. In a Christmas Eve speech, the Center said, Chavez declared that "the world has wealth for all, but some minorities, the descendants of the same people that crucified Christ, have taken over all the wealth of the world." The Voice of America (1/5/06) covered the charge immediately. Then opinion journals on the right took up the (...)

by Michael Hirsch The Wall Street Journal, which maddeningly restricts nearly all its on-line content to print-edition subscribers, is two-faced. It’s pro-corporate editorial/opinion section carries the same primal sensibility that Jack London ascribed to leaders of America’s business classes when he called them "cavemen in evening dress." The predictable, hard-right opinion pages are a Fox News with semi-colons, combining slavering respect for all-things Bushie with a loathing (...)

by Arianna Huffington Signs of trouble and Judy Miller were like Mary and her little lamb. Everywhere that Judy went, a flashing warning sign was sure to follow. Indeed, in looking back on her career, it’s clear that there were more red flags popping up around Judy Miller’s work as a journalist than at a May Day parade in Red Square. We now know that Miller’s bosses were being warned about serious credibility problems with her reporting as far back as 2000 — a (...)

Press Silence On Impeachment Text of Radio BC Audio Commentary October 06, 2005 Listen Now - The corporate media in the United States can hardly claim to fill a journalistic role, anymore. The first duty of a real newsperson is to ask questions.

Catch-22 at the New York Times

It’s put up or shut up time at the paper of record. Now that Judge Hogan has lifted Judy Miller’s contempt citation, there is no reason for the Times to hold back on its promised full accounting of the Miller story. Rarely has so much been riding on a single article. Especially internally. The frustration I’ve been reporting on since July has now spilled into the MSM with "nearly a dozen Times staffers" venting to Howard Kurtz. The Times newsroom is a powder keg ready (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
