Smear Media in Action: Eigil Söderin

FrontPage Magazine 2 August 2012
By Robert Spencer

I’ve written many times about how mainstream media reporters no longer try to maintain even the appearance of fairness, but approach those trying to resist the jihad and Islamic supremacism in the name of freedom and human rights as if the reporters’ job was to put us on trial and convict us before the world. Meanwhile, when they deal with Islamic supremacists such as the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf or Reza Aslan, they fawn all over them. A particularly egregious example of this is over at Atlas Shrugs today, where the Swedish "journalist,” Eigil Söderin, editor of ETC, www.etc.se, sent Pamela Geller a series of questions related to our Freedom March and the "First Worldwide Counter-Jihad Action in Stockholm on August 4.

Universal Muslim Economic Failure

Right Side News 2 August 2012
By Daniel Greenfield

The official media narrative is that these differences are the results of eons of oppression, checkpoints and blockades. Fair enough. But then why does the IMF put Israel's GDP Per Capita well ahead of the oil rich kingdom of Saudi Arabia?

Saudi Arabia has no Israeli checkpoints, no Israeli soldiers or planes flying overhead. It has wealth literally pouring out of the ground with a fifth of the world's petroleum reserves. And yet the IMF puts it 13 places behind Israel and the World Bank puts it 8 places behind Israel. The only Muslim countries with a better GDP Per Capita rating than Israel are small monarchies drowning in oil.

Romney's Remarkable Speech in Jerusalem

danielpipes.org 2 August 2012
By Daniel Pipes

Mitt Romney, the all-but-official Republican presidential candidate, delivered a stem-winder of a speech to the Jerusalem Foundation today, packing emotional support with frank policy statements. The contrast with Obama could hardly be more dramatic. Indeed, one could go through the speech and note the many refutations of Obama. For example, the opening comment that "To step foot into Israel is to step foot into a nation that began with an ancient promise made in this land" directly contrasts with Obama's crabbed statement in Cairo about "the aspiration for a Jewish homeland [being] rooted in a tragic history."
