After reading critical comments in some Russian media outlets about government of Bashar al-Asad in Syria, Western media speculated that Moscow wants to get rid of him. This is based on the assumption that the Russian media takes orders from the Kremlin. It doesn’t.
Islamophobia is a vast and thriving industry backed by people and organizations with a specific policy agenda. It will require an equally serious effort to confront and defeat it.
Surprising as it may sound, there is a strong pro-Israeli bias in the Russian media.
In order to understand the reality of East Ghouta, we reproduce this article by Eva Bartlett, a courageous Canadian journalists who has been in Syria on numerous occasions, unlike any of the Western media pundits that peddle State department or CIA delivered propaganda about the situation in Syria.
Instead of information, media outlets indulge in massive lies to mislead people.1
It is depressing to note the media’s manipulation of Muslims. Our sympathy is aroused for Syrian refugees but there is hardly any mention of the suffering of the people of Yemen. Are they not human beings? Who determines which group of people deserve our help and who does not?
To bring clarity to the issue of media imperialism, Crescent International conducted an interview with a veteran Muslim journalist Roshan Muhammed Salih.1
What is the reality of Al Jazeera's "leaks" over differences between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his intelligence chiefs? Are these really genuine leaks, carefully planted stories or they are meant to achieve an altogether a different agenda? Read on...
The sordid tale of how the CIA buys journalists and the manner in which their newspapers facilitate such activities. Is there any such thing as ‘objective’ media? Read and ponder.
Drones have become so popular that even telecom giants are getting in on the act. Will these be used to pry into people’s private lives even more and for what purpose would such information be used?
Are the takfiris really that great fighters or they are being projected for a sinister western agenda?
Israel’s murderous assault on Gaza and the corporate media’s shameless support of it have once again exposed the media’s true nature.
By turning out in massive numbers for the presidential poll, the people of Syria have exposed the vile propaganda of the West as well as their Arabian puppets, among them the tribal owned network, Al Jazeera. The Takfiri terrorists and their foreign sponsors also stand exposed.
Imperialist powers manipulate public opinion and perception about their strengths and weaknesses to confuse people. Muslims must be wary of such manipulation.
Based on Mohsin Hamid’s widely acclaimed novel, Ayesha Alam reviews the movie that has electrified the post-911 narrative by offering a compelling critique through the experience of a young Pakistani who finds his liberal-capitalist dreams unravel under the War on Terror.
Incessant propaganda to sugar-coat US crimes is not only used in the US but also in victim societies where media outlets are recruited and financed to do America’s dirty work.
The war on terror has produced strange animals. One category is the ‘House Muslim’ who is expected to bark at fellow Muslims critical of western policies but never at the governments killing innocent Muslims.
Western media outlets are giving the worst possible twist to normal growth and development of relations between Iran and Egypt. As long as Egypt was an US-zionist colony, it was considered normal. Egyptian independence raises alarm bells.
