Journalistisk aktivisme er obligatorisk i de fleste europæiske lande, bla. Danmark. Medietilskud gives under forudsætning af, at man fremmer multikultur og mellemfolkelig forståelse. Kritik nedprioriteres. Islam er ikke så farlig. OIC skubber lystigt på. Halalhippier har kronede dage. Omfanget af denne dumhed står klart nu, men det vil ikke ændre noget. Lov er lov og lov skal holdes. Ingen mistænker tilskudsreglerne for meddelagtighed i Vestens gigantiske fejltagelse. Fra Fox News:

Walid Phares on Americans in the US Embassy in Egypt
Most Egyptians Oppose U.S. Economic Aid
Most favor aid from Arab nations
by Ahmed Younis and Mohamed Younis – February 6, 2012
About 7 in 10 Egyptians surveyed by Gallup in December 2011 oppose U.S. economic aid to Egypt, and a similar percentage opposes the U.S. sending direct aid to civil society groups. This rebuke of U.S. financial support may be a challenge for Egypt’s newly elected parliament and its future president as the government attempts to bolster the nation’s financial stability.

Edge of Terrorism
Al-Qaeda’s Strength Lies in its Ideology, not its Leaders
Walid Phares – February 6th 2012
Ten years have slipped by since Osama bin Laden’s jihadists massacred thousands of men, women and children in the northeastern United States, prompting the start of what Americans came to know as the War on Terror. The current administration, however, insists on more benign terminology, choosing for political reasons to describe the conflict as an “overseas contingency operation,” and a “war against al Qaeda.” But are we making progress in this conflict, whatever the name? Gaining an objective assessment begins with asking the right questions.

Now it’s $11 Billion for the Muslim Brotherhood? Only in America
February 12, 2012 – by David P. Goldman
Now that America-hating Islamists control three-quarters of Egypt’s parliament and the military government has rejected American protests at the prosecution of U.S. citizens for supporting democracy, Egypt is asking for $11 billion in Western aid. That has to be the least popular idea to float down the Potomac in a long time. Nonetheless, the Obama administration and its supporters in the Punditeska doubtless will ask American taxpayers to ante up a large part of the $11 billion handout, in the interest of “promoting Egyptian democracy.” Only in America do we feed the mouth that bites us. CPI Financial News reported on Sunday:
Mumtaz El Saeed, Egypt’s Finance Minister, says the country needs $11 billion to help it get through the next fiscal year, as well as help with economic reforms, according to a report in Al Ahram, a local newspaper.

Walid Phares on Voice of Russia Radio: Trial of Americans in Egypt
Walid Phares comments on pending trial of US citizens for funding NGOs in Egypt
19 Americans to face trial on NGO funding
Sam LaHood, the son of U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood is among 43 people charged in Egypt after a probe into a foreign funding of non-governmental organizations. The inquiry into the NGOs whose stated aim is to promote democracy has added the strains between the U.S. and Egypt and jeopardized American financial aid to the Egyptian military, a close ally. The U.S. State Department said yesterday that it wants Egypt’s government to clarify reports that 19 Americans are among 43 people to be prosecuted. The U.S. has responded by saying that 1.5 billion dollars in annual aid from the U.S. sent to Egypt could be in jeopardy if the situation is not resolved. We are joined on the line to tell us more about the latest Walid Phares, the author of the book “The Coming Revolution: Struggle for Freedom in the Middle East”.
