How About Some TRUTH IN NEWS!!!

Beware- there are TWO posts for today- a very rare day indeed!

I came across THIS article today and felt it needed a little help. I am growing more and more alarmed at the way the MSM treats the War on Terror as their own personal soap box, just by merely "reporting the truth," so I went ahead and took the liberty of giving my own example of Truth In News! Hope you enjoy. The above linked article should read more like THIS:

Christian Family of 4 Slain in Home: Muslim Terrorism Alive in America

By Sherri Reese, reporter for Truth In News

January 16, 2005 - Hossam Armanious, 47, was slain in his home along with his wife and two young daughters. Armanious was a well known Egyptian Christian among those who knew him. He often spoke freely about his religious beliefs. Muslim members of a Web site had recently threatened the married father of two. According to a fellow Egyptian Christian, who was in a chat room with the murdered father when threats were made on his life, the threat read as follows: “ You'd better stop this bull---- or we are going to track you down like a chicken and kill you."

Armanious’ daughter, Sylvia — who would have turned 16 yesterday. was described as “…very religious and very opinionated,” by a sophomore at Sylvia’s high school. Young Sylvia seemed to have taken the most savage punishment, according to a family member who viewed pictures of the brutal bloodbath. "When we saw the pictures, you could tell that they were hurt really, really bad in the face; especially Sylvia," said Milad Garas, the high-school sophomore's great-uncle. The savage murderer not only slit Sylvia's throat, but also sliced a huge gash in her chest and stabbed her in the wrist, where she had a tattoo of a cross.
Fred Ayed, the deacon at St. George and St. Shenouda Church, where the deeply religious family attended services, said he's worried that the murders could have a ripple effect.
"I am concerned for the safety of our community," said Ayed, who knew Hossam for 30 years. "People are scared because one family was slain like cows," said Moheb Ghabour, publisher of a local newspaper for this Christian community.
Both the deacon and uncle dispelled any notion on the theory that the family were the victims of a robbery gone wrong.
"This is not a robbery, Ayed said. "We found all of the jewelry in the house. They didn't take anything."
"There are several theories we are looking into, but we are not commenting on any of them at this time," said Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Guy Gregory.
Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy would neither confirm nor deny that cops and prosecutors were looking into the religion motive, saying only that "nothing is being ruled out." But a relative of the mayor who answered the phone at Healy's home said there was information the murders were "religion-related."
Osama Hassan, director of the Islamic Center of Jersey City, said, "I think there might be people that can get into physical fights, but not to the point of murder." Osama went on to describe the relationship between Christians and Muslims as cooperative if not friendly.
The FBI confirmed it has been called in to help with the case.
There is no information at this time on weather or not this crime will be prosecuted as a hate crime, even though it is likely that religious hatred may have been the motive.


  • Sherri -

    Thanks for picking this one up! This is really important. Also, notice that the New York Times articles haven't made ANY MENTION of a possible religious motive for the murders - despite the fact that the girl's Coptic Cross tattoo was deliberately defaced.

  • Sherri,
    I think the best way for those of us who understand the threat from Radical Islam in the USA is to focus on a policy that seeks to deport Islamofacists. We would first have to determine who is an Islamofascist, then have them taken into custody, then deport them--all legally. We use the logic: since they want to kill or convert the rest of us, then all we want to do is deport them.
    I have not met anyone--liberal, conservative, various religions, races, etc. who disagrees with the idea of deporting radical Islamists. It is the means to have this accomplished legally that people disagree on.

  • In response to the last posting, I am opposed to simple deportation in this case. Virtually every infamous terrorist and tyrant has at one time or another been "deported" or "exiled". We must find a better way to protect ourselves from know criminals and heinous evildoers.

  • I have a posting on this. I'm amazed at the comment by the director of the Islamic center who said that there was no friction between Coptic Christians and Muslims. The Muslims believe in deception. It's part of the advice given by the prophet. Lies, falsehoods and pleas for sympathy for wrongs done to them are all part of the disingenuity that is part of the plan. These "taqiyya" and "kitman" concepts result in the total lack of credibility for any statement made by a Muslim. Nothing can be known as truth in dealing with them.

  • The sad truth is if it is a Jew or Christian, the MSM simply do not care.

    You know who runs this world right now? ( Satan, the prince of darkness). He hates Jews and Christians and yes some political leaders try to do the right thing, but the devil has the media in his pocket for the most part.
