File this one under the title of Boo-Freaking-Hoo. Finnish/Swedish TV 2 aired the documentary “USA vastaan Al-Arian / USA VS. Al-Arian” last night, that tells the (false) story of the trial and imprisonment of the North American leader of Palestine Islamic Jihad, Sami Al-Arian.
The CAIR sponsored documentary paints a very humanistic portrait of “Sami” the dad, husband and academic professor, who at one point had even met US President George W. Bush. If one was not already educated on the subject of Sami Al-Arian prior to watching the film, the person could be excused for not knowing any better. Just look at what some Finns wrote in to the station after the broadcast:
SakkeL: Diktatorisismia pahimmillaan.Mihin Amerikka onkaan menossa kun ei oikeudessakaan syytömäksi julistettu ole turvassa?.Ketä pitäisi pelätä Amerikkaa vai terroristeja? / Dictatorship at its worst. Where is America heading when a declared innocent is not safe? Who are we to fear, America or the terrorists?
smiba: mulle kävi samalla tavalla / Others have experienced the same.
Manolito: Olis varmaan kannattanut pysyä poissa jenkkinatsien tähtäimestä! Missään ei oo turvassa jos leimautuu. Vahingoniloa? / It would have been better to stay out of the Yankee Nazis’ sights. Nowhere is safe if your labeled. Malicious pleasure?
kookle: voi raukkoja / poor guy
More than likely they’re a bunch of jihadi sympathizing boobs from the git go.
I am not surprised at all that YLE 1 & 2 (Finland’s state TV channels) finds no problem in airing a propaganda film that, “gushes and oozes” all over the accomplice to terrorism, Sami Al-Arian, since they have already refused to air the documentary of IDF soldiers trying to clear their names in the documentary “Jenin: Massacring Truth”. It’s all about how the minds of the Finnish leftist media work, in regards to their warped view of morality as well as their ideological causes.
This all goes to prove that the title of “moderate Muslim” is a very slippery and meaningless label. Al-Arian openly admits that he is for murdering Jews in the film, but uses the buzz words of “resisting occupation” to sanitize the beastliness and barbarity of his deeds.
Personally, I’m very glad that the accomplice to terrorism, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad sympathizer and money handler, Sami Al-Arian, is now sitting in a 3 X 5 cell. Boo-freaking-hoo. *L* KGS
