Start the Week Open Thread 22 April 2019

The Slaughter of Christians by Muslims continues to be under reported by the BBC and the rest of the main stream media . Yet even the slightest incident involving Muslims as victims gets the full treatment . I’m sure the BBC could explain this – surely ?

    As to the thread topic – for all of my 80 years various religious factions have been indulging in murderous activities, but of late they seem to be worse, or at least more reported. The surprise, for me was somebody provoking Bhuddists to violence!

            Craig of @ITBB points the BBC started use that phrase, 6 times this morning alone
            \\ Well, but I thought I’d check TV Eyes to see if the BBC was mentioning their use of that weird phrase and, guess what?

            Yes, the BBC is using “Easter worshippers” too!

            BBC Breakfast used it 6 times this morning.

            Here’s Naga reading from the autocue at 8:33 am:

            “Police said that 24 arrests have been made, but nobody has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which targeted luxury hotels and churches packed with Easter worshippers.”

            And here she is at 8:02 am: ” Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which targeted luxury hotels and churches packed with Easter worshippers.”

            And at 7:30: “Police said that 24 arrests have been made, but nobody has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which targeted luxury hotels and churches packed with Easter worshippers.”

            And at 7:01, 6:31 and 6:01. //

        Easter worshipers

        This started in Europe and England. Their main place of worship now is Stonehenge. Their main festival is when the sun is mid spring and summer equinox in the northern hemisphere, which is around mid April.

        These people were heavily persecuted in Europe, and consequently fled to a remote island in the Pacific. This is now Easter island. The stone statues of faces pointed to the sun is the equivalent of Stonehenge lines.

        Modern scholars call these people Easter Worshipers.

      During, say, WW2, would our politicians or the press or religious leaders, have expressed shock that our enemies were shooting at us, bombing us, trying to kill us? I can’t see Mr Churchill saying to the public that he’s not very happy that Rommel and his army are firing on our troops and trying to kill them. After all, in a war, that’s what combatants do.

      islam has declared war on the West; they did it decades ago, more likely centuries ago. And in doing so, the muslim forces have done and are continuing to do what aggressors do; namely trying their best to kill us.

      But because we, their enemies, have failed to play our part in this war; by recognising that it is a war and preparing for it accordingly; we are at a perpetual disadvantage. And our leaders are time and again shocked when our muslim enemy scores a hit.

      During any war, would we import millions of the enemy into our country and pretend they are not the enemy and maybe hope they behave themselves white the war continues? I don’t think so. So why are we doing so with this muslim war?

        This has been what I have been writing on blogs since 9/11.

        We are in a state of war, and if ever there was an attack that made that clear, it was 9/11. The entire NATO was lined up behind the USA and Pres Bush. The USA could have gone which ever way they wanted, and NATO would have followed.

        What Pres Bush did was to name Islam as the “Religion of Peace” – a misnomer if ever there was one. Then followed it by opening the USA to mass Muslim immigration. Then declared war on secular Arab states. The result has been the eviction of Iraqi “Easter worshipers”. America almost succeeded in overthrowing secular Syria, the only place in the Arab world that allows Christians to be free of fear.

        The rest of NATO has followed, with doors wide open to Muslim immigration.

        The election of Pres Trump has opened up the possibility that all GWB policies will be overturned. I believe this is one of the main reasons why the Left, BBC included, is in a state of hysteria to stop his presidency.

    Me too David

    So I switched on the Toady programme eager to hear more accurate reporting of the slaughter of fellow Christians – nearly another hundred people have died overnight – but the BBC carries on avoiding any speculation about the identity of the killers .

    Indeed it it now switching into its ‘blame the security forces for failing ‘ type narrative which allows killers to go without comment whilst the BBC plays it’s comfortable ‘ lessons will be learnt ‘ game .

    To distract people – The BBC news agenda seems fixated on the election of a comic to the presidency of Ukraine- I don’t think they’ll be laughing when the Russians invade …

      That would require real investigative journalism, Taff, something the BBC isn’t particularly fond of, as they’ll offend someone.

      Possibly, the Sopel effect of trying to be interesting with sharp wit and fantasy, and failing in just about everyone’s eyes, is their norm, so like the boaty stuff, it’s much easier to ignore the crap they spout, light a beer and chat with chums on sites like here!

      I use this place to get news, sometimes popping over to the DT and even the Express, never the Mail, (too lefty now), and of course, the Undependent and the Groanier never get a look in as they’re worse than the BBBBBC!

      I’m sorry if this is a bit passive, I suppose I should get out more, and even dare to watch some live TV, but as the night-time radio is the only stuff I hear, and usually switch off when they start squealing about women’s baseball, I think I’ll choose a decent piece of music, like Durufle’s Requiem, which will make your hair stand on end for days…

          I would suggest its important to understand who the victims were. These kinds of articles are heartbreaking.
          News coverage has evolved to put a focus on the people who were lost in these kinds of atrocities. There’s also a decent argument, that in the likes of school shootings or Christchurch for example, that less attention should be on the killers – by not plastering their face and name everywhere for example.

          But of course reporting who was responsible and their motive is front and center. Any responsible news broadcaster is also going to be cautious in attributing responsibility, it’s certainly initially going to be a case of reporting what the relevant authorities are saying.

          And if you follow the coverage, you will invariably find that this is the case.

          The current top story on the Sri Lanka bombings:

          https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-48035043

          For those who can’t be bothered to read it:

          ‘Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said the Islamic State (IS) group may be linked to the blasts.
          IS has said it was responsible for the attacks, which targeted churches and high-end hotels, although it has not provided direct evidence of its involvement’

          It asks:

          What do we know about the attackers?

          and:

          Who could be behind the attacks?

          Funny thing is, lots of Muslims complain that terrorists are only called terrorists when they’re Muslim. They did so after the Christchurch attack. Even though that too was bollocks.

          And it’s a little ironic too that one of the main objectives of Al-Quaeda was to begin a Muslim v everyone else war.

          Who could be behind the attacks?

    No Toady today – the off switch has already been hit . And not just by me it seems — after reading the Sunday Times on the ‘failing BBC’.

    I was trying to figure out where we are and where we are going . Part of the answer depends on ones ‘ age and therefore experience .

    I’ve come to the conclusion that we really are heading for the George Orwell 1984 prediction .

    People can become ‘ non people ‘ by having channels of expression removed

    Certain books can be ‘burnt’ by retailers who don’t favour their views

    Only certain forms of news is suitable for the population – news spun in an acceptable form to suit the States’ political aims .

    Proles must be given entertainment to stop them from thinking so there are plenty of ‘celebrities ‘ to aspire to be polluting daily life for many

    I have my read 1984 for a while but I think it’s time to go to it again – before it becomes ‘ unavailable ‘.

      I hate that silly ballroom dancing show that goes by the stupid name: Strictly.

      The ferals at the BBC must have thought “strictly” had something to do with “dominant sex” so the boss said to his underlings – yeah, I hope you know what your doing but I will let you go ahead with the show and see how pilot show goes with the viewers.

      I still think the morons at BBC Head head quarters HQ boardroom level still think its got something to do with sex (the kind of sex were games of another nature are played).

      I hope that the BBC will continue with these kind of brain numbing family shows as I believe its a sure bet that that series and other BBC fun shows will be the death of said extortioner corporation.

    “”For me, being Muslim is less about a cultural identity and more about being fearless in the face of hatred.””

    “”In the days following the (Manchester) attack, I organised a vigil for 60 people in Nottingham. I wanted to give Muslims a space where we could connect with the guilt we all felt as survivors, grieve for those who died, and deal with the suppressed fear inside us that it might be our mosque next. It might be our family. And we are powerless to stop it.””

        1. An expression of identity

        Caitlin Killian, a professor of sociology at Drew University, explains that there is disagreement among scholars about whether the religious text, the Quran, explicitly commands women to veil.

        “Various passages,” she writes, “make reference to veiling by the prophet’s wives. But scholars disagree about whether these statements apply only to the prophet’s wives or to all Muslim women.”

        Killian argues that the hijab can be a positive assertion of an identity. She explains that in countries that were colonized by the French or the British, Muslim women were encouraged to remove the veil and be more like European women. “Consequently, in North African and Middle Eastern countries, the veil became a symbol of national identity and opposition to the West,” she argues

    All across the world Muslims repeatedly demonstrate their belief that they are exceptional and that Islam is the only true way of life and religion and that all unbelievers must be converted by the book or by the sword. The death toll of Islamification rises daily. They have even managed to force Buddhists to resort to violence to protect themselves. The Chinese are taking stern measures to deal with the rise of Islam. In contrast the authorities in the West protect Muslims , persecute those who express concern or fear about Islamification via ridiculous hate speech laws and ensures that the MSM portray Muslims as cuddly victims of white supremacists.
    There are signs that in some European countries the people are preparing to defend themselves from Islam. In the UK there are no signs whatsoever. Most people just don’t recognise the danger to future generations or are, understandably, fearful of the response of the authorities if they raise their head above the parapet. Beside this existentialist threat to our way of life Brexit is but a pinprick.

        And seeing that this Islamic Dept is so successful the BBC HQ boffins have begun another exclusive Dept for those tens of thousands BBC employees who admire “the Pink Tolerance Brigade”

        The BBC still admires Islam but it has moved onto the “Pink Tolerance Brigade”…or have they. No worries as they will return in the next few hours.

        Fed up,
        I know that most of us who voted Leave wanted control of our borders as a precursor to stopping more enrichment from the third world. However, apart from Mr Batten is there any Leave politician who you think shares that view? Certainly the Mog, Boris, Nigel don’t. They seem to think that we must view any migrant applicant from wherever in the world on an equal basis. So if we stop free movement from within the EU and replace it with controlled immigration from the world as a whole we are likely to get more RoPers than if we stayed in the EU. That’s is why I think that Brexit is important regarding democracy and giving the liberals a well deserved punch in the mouth but actually it’s an secondary issue compared to stopping the horror of Islamification.

      There is a clear split between Western and Eastern Europe. The West is now doomed to civil war since the number of Muslims in those countries has reached a critical mass and they have considerable political power. It is also clear to anyone who is paying attention that laws are being introduced that would not look out of place under Sharia. The people are being prepared to accept Sharia as a way of life in other words. That’s why you can go to Manchester Airport and be served by a majority of women wearing hijabs or see proposals to make swearing in public a criminal offence. It all goes back to Islam.

    Toady on top form this morning.
    First we get lots of coverage of the Sri Lankan mass murders without any attempt to consider who might have carried them out, though a considerable attempt to avoid that issue.
    Then a sort of hilarious ‘back to the 70s’ interval when a female communist in the studio was allowed free rein to denounce each and every facet of capitalism as a key contributor to global warming, profits are evil, big business is evil etc etc. She was given this free ride by Mischel ‘useless’ Hussein, including being allowed repeatedly to interrupt her ‘interview opponent’ who, surprise surprise, was on a bad telephone line.

    I just want to reiterate what I wrote last night as one of the
    final contributors of the Weekend site.
    Towards the end of the BBC TV 10.00 PM news on the terrorist
    atrocity in Sri Lanca ,there was a report from Colombo . The
    reporter had a very strong Sub Indian Continent English accent,
    which in itself was fairly difficult to fully comprehend to the
    untrained ear. I believe he was talking about whom might be
    the perpetrators of the horrendous barbarism.BUT it sounded
    to me that his message was being scrambled so that we could
    not understand what he was saying.
    After the interview Huw Edwards made no reference to the point
    that the reporters information was garbled at the very least.
    I will admit that this morning after being being rather less than
    serious in fact being very jocular on the sofa , Naga Munchetty
    managed to calm herself down when questioning the Sri Lanka
    High Commissioner.
    You may ask why I even watch the BBC. You see I am very interested in women’s sport , in particular Netball, Rugby and Football. And none of the rest of the media cover it as much as the
    BBC. I nearly had an orgasm when I learnt that we had beaten
    Kasakhstan at tennis and were promoted to World Group 2 from
    Group 3. BUT I must admit that the BBC did spend a shade more
    time on the Sri Lanka collateral damage interview than the tennis.

    INFORMATION OF AN ALLEGED PLAN ATTACK

    Reference to the letter of the defence ministry with regard to the above and the statement of IGP dated 2019.04.09 ref : STAFF05/IGP/PS/OUT/2860/19,

    2. We would like to draw your special attention to the a page no 2 to 4 of the statement of the State Intelligence service stating that information has been received regarding an alleged plan of suicidal attack by the leader of ‘ Nations Thawahid Jaman ‘ Mohomad Saharan .

    3. According to information of that statement ,would like you to give special attention and inform your staff to provide special security measures to the areas covered by your division.

    Priyalal Dissanayake
    Deputy Inspector General of Police’

    The BBC, at least in one part, has finally caught up with reality…it has noted that there was an intelligence warning but fails to mention that it stated the suspects were Muslim, elsewhere on the BBC though maybe a bit of reality strikes….from the website….

    ‘What’s known about the attackers?

    It remains unclear who was behind the attacks and no information has been given on the identity of the 24 people arrested.

    However, the BBC’s Azzam Ameen in Colombo says the attackers are thought to be part of a “radical extremist Islamist group” according to authorities.’

    However the report still fails to mention that the intelligence warning specifically named a Muslim group and its leader as suspects in a likely attack.

    The Today show could hardly bring itself to mention the word ‘Muslim’….In fact Nick Robinson actually tried to blame the Buddhists asking ‘could this be Buddhists that have done this?’ whilst not asking the same about the more likely Muslim angle, and failing to mention that that warning warned of a Muslim attack. Quite extraordinary failure to examine all the angles, angles that are widely reported….and the Sri Lankan government official actually alluded to the fact that it was Muslim extremists whilst refusing to say that explicitly.

    Mishal Husain at least did raise the possibility of it being Islamist extremists but again failed to tackle the Sri Lankan representative on the warning and the failure to act on it. If ths had been a British minister after an attack in the UK and he’d not acted on a warnig the BBC would be down on him like a ton of bricks…why not now? Is it because they would have to actually report the full contents of the warning? Something they have studiously avoided doing so far.

    We don’t know for sure who the attackers were but the probability is huge that it is a Muslim attack…the intelligence report, the official alluding to it being Muslims, the style of attack, the timing and the fact that the Indian Press is reporting that it is Muslims who have been arrested…

    ‘Sri Lankan authorities have arrested 24 people from the minority Muslim community in connection with the multiple blasts that rocked the island nation on Sunday, killing over 290 people.

    However, the government said they will not disclose the details of the suspects involved in the attacks to prevent them from getting publicity.

    “Don’t give extremists a voice. Don’t help to make them martyrs,” State Minister of Defence, Ruwan Wijewardene, told reporters when asked for details of those in custody.

    Police officials privately said the suspects were all from the minority Muslim community. They said the van which had carried explosives to carry out bomb attacks at the three hotels was arrested with its Muslim driver.’

    With all that why would Robinson try to suggest it was Buddhists and not Muslims? The same Today show that claimed ‘all the evidence pointed to the Boston bombing being a white supremacist attack’.

    Well into the second day of the murderous Sri Lankan attacks and the lying al-beeb are still sticking to their absurd claim that “it is not yet known who carried out the attacks”.

    There is a now a mass of information about who carried out the attacks, which clearly al-beeb are wilfully ignoring.

    Once again the tactic is to confuse, distract, prevaricate, procrastinate and misinform as long as possible with misleading chaff (eg history of conflict between Sinhalese and Tamils, Buddhists and Hindus – clearly not relevant given what is known in this case), and at all costs divert attention from islamic terrorism, which isn’t mentioned once in the main report.

    Compare with Christchurch where they wasted no time in pointing the finger at the ‘far-right’ and white supremacist ideologies and groups.

Science, terrorism, environment, climate change, nature, migration, food, medicine, transport, persecution of Christians, nature, food, persecution of minorities, medicine, economics, transport, utilities, politics, Global Warming – they fail either deliberately or through lack of preparation or research or personal knowledge to ask key questions and then realise & interrogate the connection with other areas of human activity.

    The BBC’s reliance on bland cooking shows, tired quizzes and low-brow comedies is putting its future at risk, a former executive claims.

    As rivals such as Netflix innovate and flourish, the BBC is becoming marginalised and struggles to justify its licence fee, argued Roger Mosey.

    Recent entertainment shows have attracted ‘terrible reviews and awful ratings’, he said, adding: ‘It is hard to imagine that the nation would be the poorer if some of the corporation’s current broadcast offerings were lost.’

    He described one recent programme – For Facts Sake, featuring Mrs Brown’s Boys star Brendan O’Carroll – as an ‘indefensible commission’ and said viewers deserved more.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6945527/Former-BBC-boss-fears-broadcaster-vanish-continues-rely-cooking-shows-quizzes.html

    Meanwhile, the corporation has used nearly £100million of public money collecting the licence fee.

    In 2017 it spent almost £16million sending threatening letters and emails, and stepped up visits by TV licence enforcement officers, but still missed out on more than £250million from people who dodged the charge.

    The BBC editorial strategy for Muslim terrorist attacks becomes clearer and should be remembered for the many future ones

    1. Report the killings from a distance – don’t send a beeboid directly to the site for some time

    2. Initially don’t even mention it as a ‘terrorist attack’ – call it an ‘incident

    3 don’t even speculate on the cause

    4 allow time in the news cycle to pass and hope for something ‘more important to turn up to distract

    5 even if other agencies start attributing Muslim terrorism as the attack ignore it and run down the clock

    6 eventually send a junior reporter but use the ‘bad signal ‘ trick to prevent communication

    7 start gentle blame speculation but don’t mention Islamic terrorist killers

    8 talk about the victims but not the acts themselves

    9 if pushed – describe ‘religious extremists ‘ as the possible cause

    10 if lucky – kill the story after 24 hours – hope someone famous dies for vicarious grief and distraction

    Then repeat …..

      Fedup2, and if the far-left bbc collective have to mention the remote possibility that muslims are the killers, then focus the audience’s attention on how worried the muslims are about any backlash and how the muslim ‘community’ needs support and protection. Also, maybe mention something about a nebulous thing called far right and try to include Tommy Robinson, UKIP and perhaps their new bogeyman, Carl Benjamin in the propaganda piece.

      And as you say, rinse and repeat.

      The BBC is complicit in this lies and filth, and by faling to report properly is complicit and even responsible for Islamic child rape and murder.

      In my 1970’s Uni days, the air was actually quite poor in quality but the big fear on the climate front was that of global cooling. The progressives were obviously stumped on how to ‘redistribute wealth’ in that scenario so the junk science of global warming was fabricated. The BBC was happy to assist their bedfellows. They saw it as a way to side-step the democratic process. Something that the left will gladly embrace.

    Oh my, the biased BBC is really surpassing itself, lowering its editorial integrity even further, with its insipid and truly shocking coverage of the Sri Lanka attacks.
    Most news outlets are now openly reporting who is behind this horror, but the BBC’s main website article avoids any reference to “Islamists”.
    Yes, there is reference to “the support of an international network” and then “the government has blamed a little-known local jihadist group, National Thowheed Jamath.”
    The NTJ is later referred to as “a group” who were previously blamed for “damaging Buddhist statues.”
    But scroll all the way down the BBC report and the “I” word is not used once.
    So, anyone unable to read between the lines might think this “group” of attackers could be anything…the Sri Lankan branch of the KKK, arts anarchists who don’t like Buddhist statues, or a boy band on a rampage. No pointers, no clarity, no truth telling.
    This is an utter betrayal of journalistic standards – the BBC is never slow in calling out Islamaphobia etc. but when it comes to Christianaphobia….zilch.

      Islamist is also a misnomer. The people who committed these crimes are muslims who adhere to the teachings of the Koran and the Hadiths. They are Muslims not Islamists. Using the term Islamist is an attempt to imply that they are not acting in accordance with koranic scripture. They most definitely are.

    authorities have said that barbaric , murderous terrorist attacks
    were carried out by Islamic terrorists with outside help. The
    BBC’S provisio is that no group has admitted responsibility for the genocide.
    The military wing of Hamas is listed as a terrorist organization . As
    is Hezbollah. Can one be given ” terrorist status” , by giving
    succour to murdering Islamic bastards? Or religious

    I knew it, it’s them Freemasons again.

    What a disingenuous, weasel headline, still trying to deliberately mislead, distract and deflect attention away from the simple fact that it’s an Islamic jihadist terror group.

    The important fact is NOT whether it may or may not be home-grown, international, or a bit of both. People around the world are not asking themselves those questions. They want to know whether it was Islamic or not.

    Actually, they knew immediately and the beeb are just making themselves look ridiculous with all their word-games, sophistry and prevarications. Some might say, taqiyya.
