"In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man." Concluding words say "Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."

Pam Geller's running them. She's a notorious hatemonger. US media scoundrels publish her writing. She's interviewed on television. CBS' 60 Minutes ran a full feature profile. 

She and Robert Spencer co-founded the Freedom Defense Initiative and Stop Islamization of America. It's legal to be bigoted in America. It's appalling that media scoundrels support what they should condemn.

The French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo fanned its own flames. It ran blasphemous caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed. Some showed him naked in pornographic poses.

Editor in chief Gerard Biard claimed he did it to satirize the anti-Muslim video. He called its violent reaction absurd. Editorial director Stephane Charbonnier said "We have the right to express ourselves." 

Biard added the Charlie Hebdo is "a newspaper against religions as soon as they enter into the political and public realm." He claims Muslim religious leaders manipulate French followers for political reasons. "You're not meant to identify yourself through a religion, in any case not in a secular state," he claims.

Christians and Jews do it freely in France, America, and other Western countries without incident. Only Muslims are targeted for their faith unfairly. 

Who speaks for their rights? No one in high places or with media influence able to reach large audiences in America and across Europe daily.

White House spokesman Jay Carney stopped short of denouncing Charlie Hebdo editors, saying: 

"We don't question the right of something like this to be published. We just question the judgment behind the decision to publish it."

Call it a back door endorsement. French officials also backed their hate speech rights. 

Try denouncing the holocaust in France and see what happens. Try wearing a hijab, other head covering, or head to toe burqah and find out. 

Try denouncing Israeli crimes on US television or in mainstream publications, and see how long you keep your job. Try supporting right over wrong and fair no better.

Major media in America and other Western countries suppress truth and full disclosure. Imperial wars are cheerled. Friendly dictators are supported. Independent governments are called terrorist ones. News, information, and analysis get turned on their head.

On September 19, a New York Times editorial was typical. It headlined "The United States and the Muslim world."

It invoked "Arab Spring" terminology. It's a Western, not Middle East, term. Since regional protests erupted in winter 2011, nothing changed. In countries like Egypt, things are worse.
