Where’s the Islam? Liberal Media Whitewashing Horror of Islam

Where’s the Islam? Liberal Media Whitewashing Horror of Islam

Here’s an article that appeared in the print edition of NEWSDAY Saturday.  Having already learned about this incident the day before I was disturbed to see how any direct mention of “Islam” has been studiously avoided. Merely an oversight? I’ll ask you to read the article before I begin my analysis.


LONDON – The girl was murdered by her Pakistani parents for her Western ways. And it was her little sister who bravely told jurors how her mother and father suffocated the 17-year-old with a plastic bag — gripping testimony that led to her parents’ murder conviction Friday.

Justice Roderick Evans sentenced Iftikhar, 52, and Farzana Ahmed, 49, to life in prison for killing their daughter, Shafilea, in 2003. The couple — first cousins from the Pakistani village of Uttam — were ordered to serve a minimum of 25 years in prison.

“She was being squeezed between two cultures — the culture and way of life that she saw around her and wanted to embrace, and the culture and way of life you wanted to impose on her,” Evans said during the sentencing.

In Britain, more than 25 women have been killed in so-called “honor killings” in the past decade. Families have sometimes lashed out at their children on the belief that they have brought their household shame by becoming too westernized or by refusing a marriage. –AP (NEWSDAY 8/4/12 p.19)

So, what do we factually know from this article alone?

1) This young lady was murdered by her Pakistani parents for her “Western Ways”

2) The killing was motivated by some unspecified clash between “two cultures”

3) there have been at least 25 “honor killings” in Britain in the last decade

In short, this young lady was killed by her parents simply for misbehaving in the eyes of her parents.  Would the uninformed recognize the use of politically correct code words alluding to Islam? (“Pakistani”? “Western ways”? “honor killing”?)   Those of us who follow the “issues” of Islam and Sharia law know that Islam as a religion was the root cause of this murder. (The blindly ignorant obedience of adults to a religion that justifies the killing of a daughter is a whole other discussion.)  Why is there no mention of Islam in the article?  Granted, there are space restrictions in media print reportage but did not Islam play a major role in this killing of a young lady by her parents?  Of course it did- so why not even a single “Islam” mention?

Rhetorical question for the liberal mainstream media- if a horrific story about Islamic Muslims cannot be reported accurately with the information known at the time of reporting, why report it at all?

Why is it that almost 11 years after 9/11 the liberal mainstream media is loath to truthfully report the horrors perpetuated in the name of Islam generally and Islamic Sharia law specifically?  I posit that the liberal mainstream media are generally propagandists seeking not to sully the false picture of Islam as a religion of peace.

Here is a fuller rendition of the same article from NEWSDAY online ; still no direct mention of Islam but merely a mention of “Muslim communities” and “Muslims” in the last two sentences.  One might conclude the full article still passes the politically correct test.

3 thoughts on “Where’s the Islam? Liberal Media Whitewashing Horror of Islam

  1. As a Liberal, I can answer why most of my fellow liberals take the easy way out and refuse to admit to the horrors of the Islamic world and why Sharia Law is a bigger threat to Liberalism than American Conservatism could ever be:

    1. My fellow liberals are obsessed with hating Conservatives, just like Conservatives are obsessed with hating Obama. This creates an unwritten rule that exists in both Liberalism and Conservatism: “Whoever upsets my political enemy the most is someone I must defend no matter how crazy they are.” So no matter how psychopathic the Arab Spring, for instance, or Hamas, or Iran, become, Liberals will always blame Colonialism or Capitalism or Israel for any Islamic horrors that take place. Both sides are crazy-hot to bond with anything or anyone that upsets the other side.

    2. Anti-Semitism on the Left: I keep trying to point out to my fellow Liberals that their initial anti-Israeli orientation is drifting ever more into antisemitism. The evidence is in the lack of proportion of time spent hating a relatively small bad-guy and a huge bad guy. Israel is a tiny country that, at it’s narrowest point is only eight miles wide. And it only has a few million people. It commits some atrocities from time to time, but compared to the world-wide atrocities of Islamic countries, their crimes are nothing. Still, a huge amount of Liberal energy goes into hating Israel. They fear that if they began to admit that Islam is Homophobic and anti-Feminist, it would dilute the power of their raging anti-Israeli stance, which, even as I speak is turning into a Hamas-like boiling hatred of Israel.

    3. Stockholm Syndrome: I try to tell my fellow Progressives and fellow Humanists that when the Caliphate takes over the world, they will not kill their rivals off that quickly. Note: After they win and get complete control, Muslims often allow Jews, Christians, Hindus and Buddhists to practice their religion; and, after they attain complete Dominance of the landscape, they practice frequent, but limited, persecution of other religions and other Conservatives and Capitalists. In fact, the first group the Muslims come to kill, when they take power is the Secular Left, The Socialists, The Communists, The Feminists and gays. In short, we on the Left are supporting the one major international movement, Wahabi-Salafism, whose sole aim is not to destroy American Conservatism, but American and European Liberalism and Feminism. As the Wahabi-Salafist movement slowly converts the Moderate and Liberal Muslims into it’s brand of extremism, their numbers become so great that no one can challenge them. It’s only a matter of time before these hundreds-of-millions of angry people simply wipe all Secularism off the face of the earth. Stockholm Syndrome, a psychological disorder, states that when an enemy is too powerful, the world becomes to horrible to look at in its stark reality; in such cases, the victim, or future victim, tries to, or actually does, bond with his oppressor or captor in order to try to find a way to make the Universe and okay place that is not so horrible. And too, it’s just the cowardly trip of my fellow Liberals to be mad a ten million Jews, most of whom have a conscience and half of whom feel guilty about Israel anyway, than it is to be mad a a few hundred-million fundamentalists who could have any of our heads any day of the week.

    And, in case Liberals reading this think I’m a Conservative plant. Consider that I’m pro-gay-marriage, pro-women’s-rights, pro-universal-health-care, voting for Obama and Boxer and Feinstein, and that my favorite place on the earth is Canadian and European big cities; and I’m pro-big-government, for high taxes and generally a wealth redistributionist in a number of ways, and I’m for equal-housing-opportunity and equal-employment-opportunity for all races, genders, religions and sexual orientations. My fellow Liberals will need to brand me as a Conservative or a bigot, because if I’m not, then they are lying to themselves on this issue big-time. I’m what you call a self-examined Liberal. When I think we’re wrong on an issue, I admit it; and we on the Left have it all wrong regarding the threat Conservative Islam represents to Secularism. In every place where the Muslim population is 51% or more, Secularism and Liberalism are being scorched from the face of the planet. How weird of my fellow Liberals to be in love with Hamas, when Hamas says outright that its first order of business, once it controls the world is to eliminate the very Western Liberals who are protecting it at every turn. Truly this is Stockholm Syndrome write large.

    • excellent comments Mel!! Just because one is perceived as being associated with right/left politics, doesn’t mean we ascribe to all positions generally attributed to that left/right position. BTW- I too support gay marriage but probably for the wrong reason>> why should heterosexuals have a monopoly on the misery that is marriage 😉 I have an article on here entitled “So Ya Wnna get Married, Do Ya?”

  2. One of the complaints the Anarchist Bob Black makes about Democrats, (I am a registered Democrat with a sense of self-effacing humor), is that they are fighting for our jobs. He says that one problem with the Democrats is that, like the Republicans, they would, in the end, have us working these jobs. And in that same way the Democrats are fighting for the right for everyone to be married. Quickly enough Republicans are catching on and thinking, “Yeah, straight or gay, we get everyone married and then financially obligated and piled into debt, sure!” So, some days I’m thinking, jobs and marriage? Don’t do us any favors.
