Elephant? What Elephant?
Another amazing bout of “Elephant in the Room” journalism today, as mainstream media does their best to cover the story of the Russian school hijacked by Islamic terrorists—without mentioning that they’re Islamic terrorists.
ABCNEWS.com calls them “secessionist Chechen rebels.”
CBS News calls them “militants” and “hostage takers.”
CNN.com calls them a “group” of “attackers.”
MSNBC calls them “hostage-takers” and “Chechen rebels.”
USATODAY.com calls them “armed militants.”
Al-Reuters.com calls them an “armed gang,” and says “It remained unclear who the attackers were.”
But for some reason, covered only by an unknown (to the West) Russian news service, a Mufti in North Ossetia appealed to the “gang” today to free “some” of the hostages—the children, who are considered Muslim because all children are born Muslim, and should therefore not be murdered by their brethren: N. Ossetia’s mufti urges hostage-takers to free infants. (Hat tip: Jihad Watch.)
BESLAN. Sept 1 (Interfax) - Mufti Ruslan Valgasov of North Ossetia has appealed to the gunmen who have seized a school in Beslan and taken hostage hundreds of children and adults to free at least infants, who, according to his information, are present among the hostages, and organize food supply for the captives.
“Children are Allah Most High’s pure and innocent creatures. As Prophet Mohammed said, ‘every baby is born a Muslim’, or, in other words, a creature obedient to God, and therefore any Muslim who harms a child harms his younger brother,” the mufti told Interfax.
