In a truly bizarre article by Tiina Rajamäki, the journalist writes about the situation of Islam in Holland, and how it reflects on the overall situation in Europe. In what should have been an interesting article, ends up being nothing more than a piece of propaganda that leads the reader to draw some seriously flawed conclusions.
For an example, the journalist never once mentions the death threats leveled against the Dutch politician, Geert Wilders. No, on the contrary, the journalist leads the reader to the highly false conclusion that the rift between Muslim and non-Muslim societies in Europe, has more to do with “racism” against Muslims than anything else. NONSENSE.
The HS is guilty of disseminating a highly polished, propaganda piece about the supposed role that “bigotry against Islam” played in creating the current crisis in Holland, as well as morally equating those Muslims who do incite violence and mayhem, with those who dare to offer critique of Islam.
“Draama on 2000-luvulla kääntynyt Hollannissa hetkittäin tragediaksi. Vuonna 2002 murhattiin oikeistopopulisti Pim Fortuynin ja vuonna 2004 nuori muslimimies.” / The drama of 2000 turned at times into tragedy. In 2002 Rightwing populist was murdered and in 2004 a young Muslim man.”
So lets look at this more closely. Here the journalist openly displays her attitude towards the Dutch politician, who was a conservative, homosexual man, and brutally murdered by a Leftist fanatic. She labels Pim Fortuyn as a “Right wing populist”and continues on without an ounce of thought to the ideology and the motives of his killer.
[Clue: The man who murdered Pim Fortuyn was a radical Left-wing fanatic who was upset about his criticisms of Islam.]
Another pearl worthy of further examination, is the journalist’s reference to the mysterious “young Muslim man” who was supposedly murdered in 2004. Visions of the “grassy knoll” easily come to mind. The very high profile murder of Theo Van Gogh however, went completely unreported.
It leaves the Tundra Tabloids with the impression that the incident was nothing more than pure fiction, coming straight from the mind of the journalist whose sole intention was to depict a supposed …”tit for tat / cycle of violence” scenario happening inside Holland. This is of course pure nonsense.
Oh but wait, there’s more!
“Tänä keväänä koko maa oli varpaillaan, kun oikeistopolitiikko Geert Wilders julkaisi koraania kritisoivan Fitna-lyhytelokuvan. Filmikohu lässähti saman tien, kun kävi ilmi, että muslimimaailma ei pitänyt filmiä edes reagoimisen arvoisena”. / This Spring the entire country was on its toes, when the Right wing politician, Geert Wilders aired his Qur’an critical short movie. The commotion over the film collapsed when it became known that the Muslim world didn’t view the film as worth reacting to.”
Not worth reacting to, REALLY?! In what alter universe was the journalist and her gatekeepers at the HS inhabiting during the same time period? The journalist also exposes her opinions about the short movie itself, by depicting the Islamic world as being more moral than the person who produced the film. Here Tiina Rajamäki is being very open with her opinions about Islam, and about the critics of Islam, clearly showing whom she sides with.
Its a well known fact that Geert Wilders received a number of death threats, even the townspeople where Geert Wilders’ party is from, received death threats…before the movie was even shown! How much more proof does this journalist need before she’s convinced that Wilders was indeed threatened with death before and after the airing of his movie Fitna?
This is nothing more than pure activist journalism in its most daring form, because it’s put right out there for the public to see, with absolutely no care in the world on how badly it reflects upon her journalistic code of ethics …or lack thereof.
So according to the Helsingin Sanomat, the Muslim world is not concerned with the Fitna movie….really? *L* KGS HAHAHAHAHA
