On this site, we’ve detailed the various sanitized euphemisms used for Islamic terrorists. The latest, courtesy of The Detroit News is “suburban gang.”
If you live in the Detroit area, you know what it’s like to get your news censored by the Islamo-fascist thought police and their willing media co-conspirators.
The latest incident is coverage of the Ilan Halimi torture murder by a French Muslim gang that deliberately targets Jews for torture, ransom and/or death.
The fact that the gang is Islamic is material to the story. This is not a Christian or agnostic or non-religious gang. It’s not a gang of crips or bloods from the hood, not an East Coast-West Coast thing. It is an ISLAMIC gang. Period.
But not according to The Detroit News. Nope. The words “Islam,” “Muslim,” or any derivation thereof are nowhere in their version of the story.
In the Islamo-pandering paper’s world, Halimi was “allegedly held by a suburban gang.” (scroll down to story) Allegedly? Suburban? Hello? . . .
That’s like saying “Western Hemispheric force in the Eastern Hemisphere” instead of U.S. military in Iraq. Or saying a man got hit by a “combustion engine” instead of a Corvette.
For two weeks, there has shamefully been almost NO American coverage of this important story of Muslim violence and intolerance in the West against non-Muslims. But now that there’s finally some coverage, Islam is whitewashed out of it.
Here’s the complete absurdity by the “News” . . . or “Detroit Spews,” as it’s more aptly called:
As we’ve already noted, The Detroit News has a history of deleting, apologizing, pandering, and white-washing for the Detroit area Muslim community. But not for any other.
Editorial Page Editor Nolan Finley personally hired Government of Iran agent Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi as a Detroit News columnist. His columns regularly attack Jews and Christians, but never a peep of an apology or anything else from Finley–other than defending Elahi–or any Detroit News editors. When a cartoon offends Arabs and Muslims, however, it’s deleted, and a whole-hearted apology is proffered. And, oh yeah, they refused to publish Michelle Malkin’s column about the Mohammed cartoons. You know, not wanting to offend Islam and all that.
See video of the mass French Jewish protest in Marseilles, yesterday, over ISLAMIC violence and murder of Jews here (courtesy of Yechiva Petah HeDevir, a Jewish school founded and run by Jews, like Halimi, from Arab Muslim countries, who tried to escape persecution there, but now face it in France.)
