Finnish YLE has alot to answer for. In response to a recent post, Al Avai, fellow contributor to the Tundra Tabloids, comes up with an amazing parallel that highlights the bias of the YLE article, which casts Israel as the aggressor in a story’s headline, though Israel is clearly the victim of an unprovoked attack.
Al Avai: You are correct, this is a blatant example of YLE turning the news in such a way as to always make Israel the aggressor. Sort of like this:
POLICE THREATEN FINN (YLE)
The Helsinki police department issued a threat today to a Finnish citizen they barely know.
This threat was issued in response to an event late last night in Kaisaniemi park. A woman was returning home through the park, when a Finnish-speaking assailant pushed her to the ground and attempted to rape her.
[deleted: The woman was treated for shock at a local hospital.]
The woman escaped unharmed. The Finnish police have nevertheless been issued with a warrant for his arrest, and a spokesman warned him to “come forward or face certain arrest and prosecution.
Tundraman adds: This parallel is brilliant – it should be sent to YLE!
I’ll also add, that it should be plastered on the walls throughout the entire YLE establishment, so that there wouldn’t be a repeat of the following:
Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert warned the Palestinians that rockets attacks directed at Israel from Gaza will have consequences. According to Olmert, Israel will seek those behind the rocket attacks regardless of who and where they are.
Israel’s prime minister announced his views today about the rocket and grenade fire launched at Israel from Gaza. One round went off near a day care center in the city of Sderot.
No one was either hurt or injured. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad organization announced that it was behind the attack.
The Israeli parliament’s foreign and defense committee spokesman, Tzahi Hanegbi, estimated, that Israel will have to soon initiate a wide operation in Gaza to end the rocket attacks.
Gaza has been from the middle of June under the Hamas organizations control after Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas’ supporters were banished.
The folks at YLE have a very long way to go before they can even be considered, not being overtly hostile towards the Jewish state of Israel. *L* KGS
