ARE YOU A LAZY NEWS CONSUMER?


Pres. Abbas of Palestine made a speech today commemorating the 42nd anniversary of the Fatah party. It has been mildly reported in the news cycles but very few are reporting the reality of what was actually said by Abbas in this speech From the wires:

"Shooting at your brother is forbidden. Raising rifles against the occupation is our legitimate right, but raising guns against each other is forbidden. We should put our internal fighting aside and raise our rifles only against the Israeli occupation....The sons of Israel are mentioned as those who are corrupting humanity on earth,"

This is the leader that has been an invited guest to the White House under the auspices of peace. He has said that he wants peace with Israel, a blatant lie that is in accord with the position of saying anything as long as it promotes your agenda. The bigger question is why are there not any major news outlets covering the inflammatory parts of Abass's speech? Where is the journalistic integrity that once was the rule in the media?

This is another example of how biased and jaded the media has become. If you want the truth you need to search for it. You cannot be a passive news consumer unless you want to be a victim of propaganda who has their views shaped and molded by the puppet masters that are main stream media. It is worth the effort to search through the varying internet sights to find the accurate news stories that are still being put forth. They are becoming few and far between, but it is worth the effort. You know now more than most of the rest of our country concerning this speech by Abbas. He clearly called his people to arms against Israel, he is following the teachings of the Quran that call for the elimination of Israel. That is the truth, so determine today to be a seeker of truth, and not to be a lazy news consumer!
