Mediernes hang til lovord for de forkerte

The media tells us that the Egyptian protests “drew on every segment of the Egyptian population,” while the same media tells us that Tea Party protests are racist, homogenous, and not a welcome place for black people.  The media seems obsessed with counting black people at protests.  So how could they miss the rather glaring fact that there are more black people at an average Tea Party than there were in the protests in Egypt?

NPR, of all places, is not blind to the color barrier in Egypt.  NPR’s “The Root” filed a report about the “Race And Racism Divide in Egypt,” where blacks are “routinely the targets of verbal public abuse” from light-skinned Egyptians who view dark-skinned Africans as “poor, starving and black-skinned savages.” As one dark-skinned graduate student at the American University in Cairo said, “I thought [the Arabs] were our brothers in Islam, but they don’t bother about that when you’re black.  Egyptians ask you if you live in trees.  Or, ‘Why are you black?’  ‘Is your country hot?’”  Or they ask those with dark skin ‘What time is it?’” so they would “look down and be reminded of their dark-skinned wrists, where their watches might be.”  “So, this is how we know that there is something called racism here.”

For the past several weeks, The New York Times has been running interference for the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist organization set to play a significant role in Egyptian politics after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak. In addition to publishing commentaries by two apologists for the Muslim Brotherhood, Tariq Ramadan and Essam El-Errian, on its op-ed page, the Times has published a news story that depicts the group’s spiritual leader, Yusuf Qaradawi, as “committed to pluralism and democracy.”

In fact, Qaradawi is a virulent anti-Semite who has called on Allah to wipe out the Jewish people. Moreover, he has worked to undermine the democratic principle of free speech by defending the Iranian fatwa calling for the death of writer Salman Rushdie and by promoting a “day of rage” against cartoons of Muhammed printed in Sweden and Denmark.

The man has also defended the practice of female genital mutilation and affirmed Muslim teachings calling for the death penalty to be applied to those who leave Islam and encourage others to do the same.


In January 2009 Qaradawi stated that Hitler was a “divine tool” sent to punish the Jewish people for their sins. According to MEMRI, he expressed hope for yet another punishing Holocaust to be imposed on the Jewish people, perpetrated by Muslim believers:

Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them - even though they exaggerated this issue - he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers. (Al-Jazeera TV, January 30, 2009)

Qaradawi has also called on Allah to “take this oppressive, Jewish, Zionist band of people. Oh Allah, do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.”

Med den erfaring vi også her i Danmark har med de der taler med to tunger er der en bemærkelsesværdig tendens til at man hele tiden tror på den af tungerne der lover godt. Og for lige at hamre den pointe hjem så rapporterer Ahlul Bayt News Agency at det Muslimske Broderskab ikke anerkender fredsaftalen med Israel (Set via den fremragende blog Elder Of Zion).

A senior member of Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood said there is virtually no peace agreement with the Zionist regime following the recent developments in the country, adding that any treaty not approved by the Egyptian nation must be abrogated.

Kamal Halbavi was speaking to Qudsna when asked about the future of several treaties signed by the former Egyptian regime with the Zionist regime.

The Egyptian nation considers as null and void any agreement between the toppled regime and the Zionist regime which has no respect for justice and rights of the Egyptian people.

He said the world was witnessing massive changes. “People worldwide want to see unjust laws scraped. It is no surprise for the Egyptians to want the same,” he said.

Men ih, hvor skal det blive dejligt at se dem være en del af fremtidens Ægypten.
