CBS: “Peace” on Earth and Good Will Towards . . . Hezbollah?!

By Debbie Schlussel
Tonight, at 9:00 p.m., while NBC is showing primetime NFL football and FOX and ABC are showing movies, CBS is treating you to the words of Hezbollah spiritual leader, Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, about whom I’ve written a great deal on this site.
Incredibly, Fadlallah is introduced not as the spiritual leader of Hezbollah, but as a “prominent Shi’ite Muslim leader,” in a “peaceful” pre-Christmas religious special, “In G-d’s Name.” That’s kinda like saying Adolf Hitler was a “prominent German leader,” and Osama Bin Laden as a “prominent Muslim leader.” Fadlallah’s background with Hezbollah is briefly mentioned as “controversial” in his bio on the CBS website. But CBS claims he’s condemned suicide bombings and 9/11. Riiight.



Hezbollah Spiritual Leader Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah:

Stars on CBS Pre-Christmas Prime Time

Fadlallah is the man who issued the fatwah to murder over 300 U.S. Marines and civilians in Beirut in 1983, sanctioned the torture murder of Navy diver Robert Dean Stethem, and also issued the fatwah to blow up the Jewish Community Center and Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the mid-’80s. And he, of course, was the religious force behind the Hezbollah-Israel war of last year. That’s not to mention the Khobar Towers murders of Americans and countless other joint Al-Qaeda/Hezbollah operations to murder Westerners. Fadlallah’s Al-Mabarrat “charity”–which he heads–funds “martyrs” and their orphans. You know what that means, which is why its Dearbornistan affiliate was raided by the FBI, earlier this year.
Should this guy really be on two hours of America’s major network broadcasting airwaves, the night before Christmas Eve? It’s really a thumb in the eye of our American troops and the families of those who were murdered by Fadlallah’s fatwa and his terrorist group. The guy is a terrorist leader, plain and simple, and he’s on the State Department Terrorist list.
Yet, he’s being touted as your average major religious leader on CBS tonight. One wonders if the network even mentions his background on the show, tonight, at all. If so, it will be the same apologism they have for him on the CBS website . . . or worse.
This isn’t the first time I’ve written about CBS’ pan-Islamist tactics, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
Dan Rather may be gone, but his former network is up to its old tricks of trying to pull the wool over its viewers eyes.

Good one Norman!
I missed the show too.
Allah catch it next time!

What I wonder is which of the following is the case:
A. CBS’s journalism department is so shoddy that they’ll put on TV whatever their Islamist advisers tell them to without doing the least amount of research.
B. CBS actually is as anti-American as this stunt makes them appear.

Thank you Debbie for being ever vigilant and staying on top of the devious devices of the MSM as they try and deceive the citizens of this great country. America owes you and others like you, who wage a DAILY war against those who would steal away our freedom, a wealth of gratitude!

Debbie, this is off topic, but I wondered if you had seen this:
According to this Useful Idiot Self-hating Jew, the IDF doesn’t rape Arab women due to racism — the Arab woman is too far beneath them to be rapeworthy. ? It’s possible the silly girl got the idea from a comment Mike Wallace made in his book, Arab and Jew, in which he draws the same conclusion.
The astonishing thing is that a teachers’ committee selected this girl’s doctoral paper to win an award. I hope you will look into this and write something about it. It is truly mind-boggling that anyone would say that our soldiers are bad because they DON’T rape enemy women. And as I pointed out, she is not the first to make this accusation.
I guess if you’re a Jew, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t!

That was his last statement for now. NO mention of 9/11.
Soneone said “we put a dog’s tail for fourty years in a frame to straighten it up. We took it out and it curled back again as it was”.
CBS, this a waste of time. [A dog’s tail will always be a dog’s tail]

Seriously, are we fighting a War on Terror or not?!
These guys are working (not trying, but really working) to KILL US!!!!! They don’t want mere surrender; they want us DEAD!!!!! They brainwash their children to hate and kill Jews and Christians – and us LDS folks are no exception (see what Talovic did to Trolley Square: 5 dead, 4 wounded = 1 terrorist).
This is past sick – it’s near usury! CBS is mocking the very existence of this war!!!!! They keep saying, “It’s an illegal war in Iraq, Bush is to blame for everything; listen to this guy (Fadlallah) who everyone with half a mind knows is responsible for killing Americanís, but ‘we’ don’t care! And before you can make your decision as to our credibility and motives – here’s a ‘news’ story about a 16-year-old pop sensation that just got pregnant out of wedlock, and you’ll watch and become enthralled in this story alone because most folks are addicted to porn by now…”
CBS acting this way shows a few things:
1. They will do anything short of on-air infanticide/cannibalism for ratings.
2. They are practicing disloyal oppostition.
3. They are scarred of the terrorists, and conformed to the status of ‘toady’, or dhimmi.
4. Have no onions. Period.
Debbie’s correct. CBS’s timing of this propoganda right before Christmas Eve is a thumb in the eye of us all!!!
So, seriously; are we fighting a war or not?!

I guess CBS is feeling desparate during the writer’s strike 🙂 I didn’t waste my time watching this piece of garbage…..
As for the comments about soldiers raping women, yes, Deb, maybe you should comment on that. I just looked at the site and even Arutz 7 (who reported it) commented, “can’t the reason just be that Israeli soldiers are and are trained to be very moral?”. And not some reason/agenda?
You don’t hear about our U.S. Army raping Iraqi or Afghan women either, and I’m sure it’s not that our gov’t is censoring something. But I bet this woman would find some dumb excuse to analyze something for her thesis 🙂

We all know CBS is crap.
I find that the actor Will Smith, being a Hitler fan a bigger story.
I wonder if Will Smith faces the same scrutiny that other anti-Semite actors in Hollywood have faced or if no one will challenge Mr. Smith and succumb to fear of the Jackson/Sharpton race card.

Skouti, or whatever your name is:
Israel never created terrorists or murderers like your masters who are deceiving you and the world. Israel created and made heroes.
Trust me, (I don’t care if you do or not for this is the truth) they are more than bright when the moment comes to wipe you and your masters out off this earth or rather the whole universe. One catch though, they take into consideration humanity which something never you or your masters had the sence of.
Do yourself and everybody a favor. Go and blow yourself up in Bint Jbeil or Ba’alback for this is the easiest way for you to Hell.

Thanks for banning that guy. I was up all night with sick toddlers. When they finally went to sleep about 2 AM, I watched “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West.” Then I read your website and had to comment.
The last thing anyone who just watched Obsession needs is one those nuts abusing their own words.
Thanks. Your response is perfect.

bhparkman on December 24, 2007 at 8:20 pm

Debbie, I watched several minutes of Katie Courik’s first night, saw she was a trainwreck in a bad outfit, and haven’t watched her since. Cbs is to news what Islam is to coexistence.
