No Chance For Truth About Iran With Western MediaPolitical Perspective by Tim King Salem-News.com
Lies, lies lies yeah... - The Thompson Twins
(SALEM, Ore.) - If Iran's President was a chicken, the American press would already have him prepared and waiting in a KFC box under a heat lamp. There is at this point, practically no way for western people to learn what is really going on in the world if they don't look beyond traditional media.
Absolute and total political bias about imaginary Iranian statements, as well as media-fabricated lies about an Iranian Nuclear Weapons program that by all credible accounts does not exist, dominate the headlines.
The stage is the Durban Review Conference, a UN conference on racism, in Geneva, Switzerland. Ahmadinejad spoke Tuesday, 20th April 2009.
Israeli influence on U.S. mainstream media or "lamestream" as it is coming to be known, is almost as thick as big corporate America's constant message on the lips of the money grubbing morons at FOX News.
Remember that as the press attacks this guy, The United States and Israel are actually boycotting the world's biggest anti-racism conference.
Do as I say not as I do?
The choice to boycott the event is tied to the fact that the anti-racism conference will focus in part, on the recent Israeli attack on Gaza.
Here we go, these are some of today's headlines:
Ahmadinejad dropped Holocaust denial from speech
More Hatred From Mr. Ahmadinejad
Ahmadinejad uses Saberi as puppet to play Obama
Do you think they could try to take the tone down a little?
Israel just got done killing more than 1,400 Gazans, many of them children, and in turn lost a total of 13 of their own. That includes the highly touted Hamas Rocket attacks and four Israeli friendly fire incidents.
Israel clearly and overwhelmingly overreacted to the perceived danger from the Hamas attacks and they used it as a reason to use illegal weapons such as White Phosphorous.
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may be no prince, but he is an unrelenting force that will not let the world peacefully ignore the murderous and oppressive politics of Israel.
He is also the biggest 'false story magnet' in the world right now, as this report reveals, and the untrue statements about "Holocaust denial" are fabricated.
These reports on 'Holocaust denial' also give major credence to the preposterous idea that anyone with two brain cells would believe the Holocaust didn't happen in the first place. My dad's friend Basil Dell was a concentration camp liberator with the U.S. Army during WWII and his photos told a wretched and horrible story about what people are capable of doing to one another.
Sort of like Gaza but on a much bigger scale. Of course to the 1,400 plus in Gaza, there is no difference at all.
The painful part is that his government spent big bucks on a multi-part series on the Holocaust that was played on national Iranian TV.
Think about it, these reporters can write anything they desire and there is no recourse from Iran for libel and slander. They set Bush's crimes to music and create stories about the Iranian President that are exposed with about a minute of Google searching.
Among other things, Ahmadinejad's in hot water over an accusation that the West used the Holocaust as a "pretext" for aggression against Palestinians. How is that statement not possibly true?
The Jews were abused and mass murdered by the Nazi's. Upon liberation, with the help of U.S. and British forces, the survivors joined by other Jewish people, moved to what is now Israel.
The problem is that it was already home to somebody else.
In 1947 and 1948, the Palestinians were attacked and killed by the new occupying force and the lucky ones fled, others were killed in many cases and forced to leave homes that their families had occupied, in some cases, for hundreds of years. They have never gotten over it, how could any person?
Here is the actual statement from Ahmadinejad that the press lit their torches over.
"After the Second World War, by exploiting the holocaust and under the pretext of protecting the Jews they made a nation homeless with military expeditions and invasion. They transferred various groups of people from America, Europe and other countries to this land. They established a completely racist government in the occupied Palestinian territories. And in fact, under the pretext of making up for damages resulting from racism in Europe, they established the most aggressive, racist country in another territory, i.e. Palestine."
Smugly, Israel's government insists that the Bible justifies its treatment of the Palestinian people. I never really understood this history until more recent years, and I am horrified by the plight of both the Jewish and Palestinian people.
I have written at length about the world events that have led to the horrible mess at hand. Western greed is the main culprit time and time again. Iran was ripped off for years by the British and it led to the Islamic Revolution in 1979. For a long time, using their political influence, they [West] imposed unfair economic laws on international economic transactions. They set up financial and monetary systems without provisions of international supervision and imposed those systems on countries that did not have the smallest role to play in the processes and policies adopted.

Here is a comment from Ahmadinejad, "For a long time, using their political influence, they [West] imposed unfair economic laws on international economic transactions. They set up financial and monetary systems without provisions of international supervision and imposed those systems on countries that did not have the smallest role to play in the processes and policies adopted."
The Iranian President is being singled out because the American and Israeli governments are shamefully not present at the racism conference, because neither country actually gives two hoots about racism beyond public perception. There is little more to it I suspect.
I am always accused of putting opinion in stories but those are at least usually slugged as "political perspective" pieces. At least one of the headlines I mentioned is an opinion piece, but it is representing the paper either way. These are the largest names in the U.S. and the world for that matter, casting absolute influence in how people see or hear the news.
Maybe if the United States and Israel were willing to participate, this would not have happened.
