The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

A Network of Propagandists

The Western news agencies that report on the "Israeli/Palestinian" conflict never hesitate to transmit the propaganda put together by the terrorists. For instance, here's a case where the wire services carefully covered the construction of a propagandistic backdrop, only to have it make a convenient appearance as a backdrop in the wires today.

The international Red Cross issued a dire warning on the state of basic services in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, calling on Israel to lift a blockade it has imposed in response to rocket attacks by Palestinian militants.

Our wire services were built upon a hundred years of Western technology and efforts. Yet now, these services are reduced to being actively involved in transmitting anti-Western, pro-Islamic propaganda.

Are we in the West so clueless to the origin of said propaganda (which is at its core a heavily coördinated global push for a pan-Islamic caliphate), that we merely transmit it as if it's as valid an opinion as our lawfully-elected governments?

Or do we want our wire services to be the messengers of the terrorists?
