CNN covered the killing of the 12 Nepalese using the following quote
Jaish Ansar al-Sunna, which claimed August 23 to have kidnapped the 12 Nepalis, said they were killed “for their cooperation with the United States in fighting Islam and its people.”
But the headline and story from Skynews says”
A statement on the website said: “We have carried out the sentence of God against 12 Nepalese who came from their country to fight the Muslims and to serve the Jews and the Christians … believing in Buddha as their God.”
CNN does not want to say anything that would detract from the whole “Religion of Peace” thing.
Why doesn’t the press characterize these executions as what they are, war crimes and human rights abuses? That is exactly what these killings and the suicide bombings in Iraq and Israel are, why not call them that?
Because that would destroy the story the media wants to tell. It wouldn’t be very effective to support the Iraqi “insurgents” if they are war criminals, would it?
