Obfuscating Headlines of the Day: Guess the Religion & Blame the Jews

By Debbie Schlussel
Here’s a little sampling of some headlines and stories I read in the hard copies of my morning papers. They make the mainstream media’s selective outrage quite clear.
First, there’s the murder of Pvt. William Long, 24, and wounding of Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula, 18, at an Arkansas military recruitment center. They were attacked by Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad a/k/a Carlos Bledsoe, a Muslim convert who studied jihad in Yemen. He shot them because he opposed the U.S. military (based, of course, on his Islamic faith and studies).


Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad:

Muslim Murders One, Wounds Another @ Arkansas Recruiting Center

But today’s Wall Street Journal doesn’t want you to know that. Here’s the headline and story that appeared in the paper. Hmmm . . . what’s missing? Well, it’s like telling the 9/11 story using 19 hijackers named Joe, Sam, and Bob and pretending they didn’t come here from the Muslim Middle East with specific motives and hatred against us infidels.

But then, there’s this headline, below, from today’s USA Today, the hard copy of which didn’t even mention the targeted killing and wounding committed yesterday by Muhammad in Arkansas. As an American, which story would you rather read about–“JOOOO Settlers” upset their homes and land were seized in Israel and given to HAMAS and Fatah supporters . . . or Muslims killing Americans on American soil at random? Note the headline doesn’t mention “Israelis,” only Jews. Gee, I wonder why. I wonder why we must shield the religion and obviously Muslim name of a murderer of a young soldier and wounding of another on our own soil, but yet, we must be exposed to this headline.

And FYI, here’s why the JOOOOOO settlers were so upset: the “go to hell on settlements, Obama” message the media is claiming Netanyahu is sending Obama isn’t exactly what he’s saying.
In fact, while Netanyahu is telling Obama he’ll continue to build in some areas of suburban Jerusalem, he is actually redlining Jews out of their homes in outlying settlements and, this past week, dismantled their homes. Can you imagine a President of the U.S. telling another world leader, okay, we’ll continue to let Black people build houses in suburban Detroit, but out in the country, we’ll forcibly tear down their homes and give their land to relatives of the 9/11 hijackers?
That’s what’s been happening this week in Israel. That’s why these “Jewish Settlers”–as they are derogatorily called by USA Today–are in a “rampage.” How many Palestinians did they kill? None. How many did the Muslim they’ve whitewashed kill at the Arkansas military facility? At least one, seriously wounding another.
But-shhhhhhh!–you’re not supposed to know he’s a Muslim. But you can know when people upset that their homes were seized are “JOOOS” on a “rampage.”
A couple of other points:
* One account of the Muhammad Muslim assassination at the Arkansas recruiting center features this nice little quote:

At the Monday-afternoon briefing, [Little Rock Police Chief Stuart] Thomas said investigators believe Muhammad acted alone, and likely carried “political and religious motives.” Thomas said the gunman targeted the military but was not believed to be part of a broader scheme.

Hmmm . . . which religion’s “religious motives”?
Um, if you’re acting on behalf of Islam, you ain’t acting alone. And it makes no difference whether or not he’s “connected” to a terrorist group or officially “part of a broader scheme.” No mater what, he is part of a broader scheme. It’s called Islam. Hello . . . .
One other point, as reader Craig asks, um, when will we stat hearing about how left wing hate radio and TV (i.e., Olbermann) spurred on this anti-military and anti-American violence?

Interesting–is it not, Debbie?–that NO ONE is discussing the “link” between the left wing hate radio talkers and this guy who shot two troops in AK only the need to “do something” about the Tiller [DS: the abortion doctor] murder’s links to the right wing, huh?

Well, they won’t mention his “links” to Islam, either. So, don’t hold your breath for any mention of this, either.

We’re supposed to be sensitive to the Religion Of Peace but make sure we know its the Jews who are the obstacle to peace. Got it! If all one had to go by was the headlines, Muslims are never guilty of wrong doing while Jews are blamed for living where they shouldn’t be. In the somewhat interesting movie “Flight Plan,” its helpfully shown the real threat doesn’t come from Muslim terrorists but from those charged with protecting us from that threat. The villain of the day isn’t an Islamist having murdered a US military recruiter; it Jews who refuse to submit to the American apartheid rule the Israeli government is imposing on them at Washington’s behest. After all, the headlines never ever lie about the news of the day!

The correlary between the screaming form the left about the killing of Dr Tiller in opposition to that of the army recruit is blatant. I wonder if the Justice Dept will send US Marshalls to cover recruiting stations now?
The disparity in how the administration is cajoling and pressuring Israel to retract from more land so Hamas can move in with even more rocket sites to pepper Israel with is equally out of proportion to any pressure placed upon Hamas or its supporters in Iran.

These headlines where one paper clearly mentions Jews being responsible for a major catastrophe when no such thing took place while leaving out the motive (Islam) in another incident when a Muslim commits murder are nothing. There are news stories where Israeli Jews are blamed for the same incident involving deaths that is actually the fault of Arab Muslims.
As for Olberman, I normally enjoy watching him, but only for the comedic value. He does not yet realize that people are laughing at him not with him. However he went over the line last night. He actually blamed FOX (specifically O’Reilly and Beck) for Tiller’s murder. I don’t know if I will watch him any more.

It is disgusting. The mass media have let go of their restraint and are now openly anti-semitic. The deviants perceive that the times are now right to express their concealed anti-semiticism. It is so blatant. There is no shame anymore. And forget about providing us with “balanced” news. It is so one-sided, I view these news people with contempt. They have absolutely no credibility.

Right on point. The left just protects its “victims” through the media. Somehow the Muslim killer will be a product of talk radio and the Christian Right. He will be excused because the left will empathize with the scumbag.

Keep close watch!
Once we have our own Reichstagsbrand things will go down hill FAST.
YES…I AM making the comparison. Show me different.
This possibly could have been…or will be the recent(future)Swine Flu “pandemic.”

sigh, this is the media at it’s worst-I just wish I knew why they would do that… the more biased they seem, the less people would read them, do they not see that?

What typical BS from the main vein press! I long ago stopped watching all network news for exactly this reason. I hope this MUSLIM didn’t do this for attention.. because the way he and his religion have been IGNORED in the news coverage, he and his like-minded cohorts will see need to escalate thier acts of barbarism.
Every American needs to be ready to provide, sustain, and defend himself and his family without help from any gov’t agency or outfit. (Katrina anyone?) It’s going to get much worse before it gets better in this country and abroad. Welcome to National Socialism, and it’s front man Obama.

DontTreadOnMe on June 2, 2009 at 4:44 pm

Wow. Outstanding article, DS. This is really sickening and terrifying to see this weird anti-Semitism in the mainstream press. How did this start? Why are neo-libs and university (pseudo)intellectuals like this now?

The only way to stop the MSM or as I now call them, the government run media, is to stop watching them. If we don’t watch their commercials, they will not get money and they will go out of business. I also think we should not buy GM or Chrysler. We can buy Ford or Toyota or Honda or Mitsubishi or from any privately owned company.

CNN (tonight) was using this guy’s “bledsoe” name NOT his muslim convert (real)name… They did mention he was a “recent convert to islam” but only after parsing the story. Ridiculous. I guess CNN wants muslims… err, islamic radicals to come down and cut off their heads before they report what is happening in the indoctrination of people world wide, not just “random folk” etc.
It will take a nuke in tel aviv to wake the world up.. and I am praying to g-d that will never happen.. but how can it not ? And will the wholesale destruction of jews (AGAIN) serve the world ?
Nazis are not gone, they are alive and well in established islam, the grand mufti of the “palestinians” made sure of that back in the day… siding with supreme evil… Obama is the new appeaser and the new oppressor.

How is it that a guy shoots up a couple of soldiers, and when he’s taken into custody he has no gunshots in him. Not even a f–king bloody nose? I don’t want to hear that he gave up peacefully. Yeah right. Now we have to cloth and feed this sack of s–t? For how long the next 40 years or so at the cost of about $40,000 per year. Just great.

Tiller the Baby Killer in Kansas and an Arkansas Army Recruiter are murdered. Obama gets all weepy and indignant about Tiller being murdered by a Christian Extremist. Can’t just say – nut job murderer, gotta insult the religion of 90+% of the country. Not a peep – even condolances to the family – of the 20-something young man who just finished bootcamp and was gunned down by a Jihadi Convert newly trained in Yemen. Sends shivers down my spine for the military folks. Great behavior for their CinC. *sigh*
BTW – from where did an ex-con (Murderer Muhammed) get the money to travel and live in Yemen for several months? With which group did he train? So lastly, how can we be sure that he was really acting alone?

Tamarah on June 3, 2009 at 3:02 am

Never a peep out of the left wing savior Obama when Jews or Christians are murdered by barbaric Muslims. But if he can falsely blame a crime on the conservatives….. it’s pity party time. After throwing Israel to the Islamic wolves (my apologies to the wolves, as they only kill for food)he is determined to destroy our great republic… slowly but surely.
