Three innocent Arabs murdered by Exploding Zionist Hotel. (english)

Modified: 01 Dec 2002
KENYA-Three innocent Arabs were murdered today after their van which was filled with fireworks accidentally crashed into a Jewish hotel in Kenya. Instead of helping the men, who were on their way to a Human rights party to celebrate diversity along with their friends from Indy media, the Jews blew up the hotel to kill them.
KENYA-Three innocent Arabs were murdered today after their van which was filled with fireworks accidentally crashed into a Jewish hotel in Kenya. Instead of helping the men, who were on their way to a Human rights party to celebrate diversity along with their friends from Indy media, the Jews blew up the hotel to kill them.

Leftist groups were quick to condemn Israel. Noam Chomsky who is on a speaking tour of 22 Islamic countries blamed everything on the existence of Israel. "the fact that a country can be Jewish is repulsive .. it is racist for any people other then Muslims to have their own states". Chomsky remarks were met by cheers of thousands of Iraqi soldiers taking a break from gassing Kurdish villages. Col Jihad Icb Mohamed leader of the Iraqi special Chemical division said "I thank Allah everyday for the American left , everyday my soldiers pray for the demise of saddam but thank Allah the American left realizes that Bush is far worse then saddam and organizes marches in support of the great leader" . Jihad complained that in Baghdad they have to kill several people a day in order to motivate people to march against the USA but in the US there are so many willing University students to help support Iraq.

When questioned if his remarks were anti-Semitic Chomsky responded angrily that just because he doesn’t like Jews doesn’t mean he is anti-Semite. "Just because I believe that Jews are the only people who have no rights to their own state doesn’t make me anti-Semitic" chomksy said on fair and balanced Al Jazera TV. Chomsky remarks were interrupted by breaking news from Egypt were 100 men were arrested for looking like homosexuals.

In Sudan outrage against the exploding Zionist hotel was also expressed. Mohamed ibn Osama a Sudanese slave owner was saying, “ We in the Muslim world want nothing more then human rights for the Palestinians and all people. Every day innocent Palestinians are killed only because they seek the just cause of destroying a non Islamic states”. Mohamed then returned to beating his Christian slave who was trying to get the attention of an idymedia reporter to explain his plight. The Indy media reporter ignored the Christian slave and instead focused his attention on an Al qaida fighter who claimed the US special forces had beat him up when he wouldn’t tell them where in a nursery school he had placed a bomb. The Indy media reporter expressed his sincerest apology to the terrorist for the violation of his Human rights “On behalf of real Americans I am appalled at how our county is treating terrorists who are merely trying to fight the Imperialist government of George Bush”. The reporters apology was interrupted by screams as Islamic men beat the Christian slave to death

We've got a problem, folks (english)
29 Nov 2002
And I'm not sure that Jeff's sarcastic response to it is entirely out of place. The sad truth is while we tend to criticise the conventional media for being biased, for not carrying all the news, we are every bit as bad.

I haven't seen a stright story appear on IMC about yesterday's attack(s). Yes, a hotel was attacked in Kenya, apparently because it was Israeli owned and frequently had Israeli guests -- though as might be expected the Kenyan casualties outnumbered the Israeli casualties by something like 5 to 1. So apparently it isn't just the Israelis who ignore whether attacks are likely to cause "collateral damage".

There was also an attempt to bring down an Israeli airliner with ground to air missiles that either missed or failed to explode (if I were sarcastic like Jeff, I'd say "remember to pull the safety pins out before firing"). The airliner turned around and made it back to Israel.

There was also an attack on a polling place (primary elections of the Likkud Party). In this case apparently there is a bus stop there so possibly the people waiting in line to vote were mistaken for those waiting in line to board a bus (clearly considered a legitimate target).

LOOK -- we don't need to be totally unbiased in our reporting the news, it's OK to let our politics show SOME. But what we are seeing here is something else entirely, perhaps more extreme than what the standard media does. They at least do tend to carry "unfavorable" news, just bury it deep within (those of us who acuse the standard media of not carrying the news apparently aren't willing to read beyond the front page headlines).

Folks, we can do better than this. And if we want IMC to be taken seriously, we have to.
responsible journalism... (english)

...reports news, and keeps editorializing to a minimum. we can't be totally objective as thinking, feeling humans, but telling the truth, as we understand it, is what imc is all about. that being said, i agree that imc can't fall into the trap of hiding truth when it implicates or reflects poorly our causes, like the soviets did. then again, why would we possibly want to feel defensive about what a few murderous thugs did to civilians, jewish/israeli or otherwise? i admire robert fisk, reporter for the uk's independent (or is it the guardian?) cuz he tells it straight, and that means exposing injustice, both what is perpetrated by arab governments and by the israelis. just so happens, there is so much committed by the zionists that it keeps him busy reporting about it.
we must be about justice, and against injustice- you know solidarity, mutual aid, federated communities helping each other out for a happy world, and this means being honest, open, and rejecting all forms of oppression, no matter who is responsible. of course, if someone does something stupid which damages an ideal which we stand for, we ought to be the first ones to stand up and call out that shit, and defend our cause (in this case palestinian dignity in the face of zionism).
ok, end of rant.
