J'accuse the Guardian
Exclusive: Pamela Geller reveals 'dangers of far-left, pro-Islamic supremacist media'
Recently one newspaper kicked up an international controversy – and showed the dangers of today’s far-left, pro-Islamic supremacist media. A story, a fiction, was created a couple of weeks ago and advanced by a well-known, unfathomably well-regarded newspaper: London’s Guardian. Taking a page from Der Stürmer, the Guardian published an Islamic supremacist incendiary fiction, the sole objective of which was to indict an entire nation of something it did not do – all to incite Muslims to violence and further impose Islam on a put-upon people.
It started when one or two small, insignificant French websites, along with OnIslam, a pro-jihad Islamic website, made the outlandish claim that the West African nation of Angola had banned Islam. The earliest report was apparently a French-language one in La Nouvelle Tribune, published on Nov. 22. But it was the Guardian’s Aristides Cabeche and David Smith who reported that the made the story go viral: Angola, they reported on Nov. 28, “has been accused of ‘banning’ Islam after shutting down most of the country’s mosques amid reports of violence and intimidation against women who wear the veil.”
