Arbetman is most likely the only commentator on the factually challenged CNN series, who successfully and very convincingly, nails Christiane Amanpour’s anti-Israel bias, in the segment of “God’s Christian warriors”. Arbetman singles out the most damaging evidence yet against Amanpour:
“If Christiane Amanpour wanted to find “God’s Christian Warriors” who are genuinely analogous to Muslim terrorists, she didn’t have to look farther than the anti-Defamation League’s web site. There, anyone can find a whole list of home-grown Christian-based organizations with established history of murder, lynching and bombing. The Christian Identity Movement, the Ku Klux Klan, and the Militia Movement are well known to everyone embarrassed by America’s home -grown terrorists. If Amanpour could reach back to the 1980’s and 1990’s to cite examples of Jewish extreme violence, certainly the Militia Movement which spawned the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing should qualify at least some air-time covering these organizations.
Arbetman hits the nail squarely on the head. The only agenda Amanpour had in her “God’s Warrior” series, was to malign and demonize those voices that are friendly towards the Jewish state of Israel, while giving Islam in comparison, …a free pass. Kudos to Robert Arbetman for pointing that out for us. More here. *L* KGS
