Tundra Tabloids Yanks Story on Hamas Mass Wedding of Tots For Terrorists…….

Oops!

The TT stands corrected!

It has come to the Tundra Tabloids attention, from Tim Marshall at Sky News, that the story concerning the mass wedding of tiny tots for Hamas terrorists, has turned out to be false. The story originated from Carl in J’lem, who has a very long history of “getting the big scoops that are factually sound”, which is one of the main reasons why his blog was a Weblog Award Winner last year.
No one is perfect, that includes all of us in the blogosphere, but at least when we do get it wrong, (at least at the TT) it’s duly noted with an accompanying correction. That said, many within the MSM are notorious for their bias against Israel which contributes to their misrepresentation of the facts in their reporting on the Arab Israeli conflict, and their failure to admit that truth.
So last night the Tundra Tabloids received a comment from Sky News’ Tim Marshall, complaining that it was guilty of disseminating a false story concerning the mass wedding of 450 people, (now pulled) that claimed Hamas adult males had wed pre-pubescent girls. It was accompanied by a video in Arabic showing little girls in wedding dresses dancing and swaying to music. Sky News’, Tim Marshall had this to say to the TT in the comment box:

“I was there. We filmed it. The children are NOT the brides. the brides are in the audience. where is your evidence? It’s cultural, you invite your neices and cousins etc. they get dressed up, have the time of their lives. Really think all 450 guys are peaodoes? Learn a little – Hamas does enough disgusting stuff without havingto make up things. Tim Marshall Sky News, Gaza http://blogs.news.sky.com/foreignmatters

Fair enough Tim, the TT has responded to your request to pull the story. But what about factual accuracy on your own blog Tim, where you describe the “West Bank” as “occupied”, as well as the mentioning of municipal swimming pools in Israeli settlements, though failing to mention that the Arabs in the same areas have municipal swimming pools as well.

I know why you added one while leaving out knowledge of the other Tim, it’s because you wanted to create an image in the minds of your readers that, Jews have, while the Arabs do not, which would go to underline your basic premise that Jewish areas in Samaria and Judea are evil.

A couple of comments by, Yochanan, to your post goes unanswered by you, no wonder why, he nails your shabby thesis to the wall:

“Getting facts right is a must in the media. What are the facts? FACT #1: In 1921, Britain divided the land earmarked by the League of Nations “for the establishment of the Jewish homeland” into what is today Jordan and Israel. The British banned (in breach of the LN mandate) Jewish residence in Jordan and uprooted communities there since time immemorial. Jordan according to the British was to be the Arab state of palestine!

FACT #2: In 1947, the UN partition was approved. It was accepted by the Jews but not by the Arabs. This plan is therefore defunct and by virtue of Arab rejection, has since been irrelevant as a basis for future negotiations.Since the 1920’s, long before there was any occupied territory of 1967, the Arabs in the Land of Israel have been systematically attacking Jews to annihilate them. The Arabs do not want a state. The Arabs want Israel’s destruction. The Arabs do not want a state besides Israel, but one instead of!

You see folks, it’s not just what is printed by the biased main stream media that can be untrue, it can also the be the image they are trying to convey to the public. While it’s immensely important that what’s being written is indeed factual, context is important as well. And Sky News’ Tim Marshall went out of his way to ensure that the image of Jewish swimming pools factored into the readers thinking, which meant not mentioning a word about the Arabs’ water parks in many if its cities in the same area.

It’s fact hardly, if ever, mentioned by these types who want to protray the Arabs as water starved by the evil Jews. It’s the same mentality that goes into thier style of reporting on Islam, which more often than not, turns a blind eye to the religious mandated supremacist thinking, as well as Islamic sanctioned pedophilia, that in fact allows adults to right the bed a minor.

Marshall asks: (Do you) “Really think all 450 guys are peaodoes?” Given the fact that these people are depraved enough to murder their opponents by tossing them from very high buildings to the ground. Or force kids into brain washing camps to train them to kill Jews, or distribute some of the worst anti-Semitic propaganda seen since the days of the Third Reich, or launch missiles into civilian populations inside Israel, or promote a death culture in their society in which murder is divine.

Then yes Tim, it’s not a stretch to believe that Islamic fundamentalists would engage themselves in a mass display of pedophilia…and be proud of it. KGS

UPDATE: Exchange between Sky News’ Tim MArshall and the Tundra Tabloids. You decide.

Tim Marshall: Appreciate your honesty in pulling story. We’ll have to disagree on the rest. I am far from lefty anti zionist, but you won’t persuade me that the water distribution is equal, nor on the term occupied. The point about municipal pools is that the Israeli govmnt pays for it, what the Pals do in the West Bank isn’t the point. It is a stretch to go from being murderers – which Hamas are, to being peodos. I do not wish, nor go out of my way to portray Jews as evil. I reciive enough hate mail from Muslims about being a Jew loving, islamaphobe etc without you piling in on the other side. See this

Tundra Tabloids: Hi Tim, I never said nor implied that water rights were equal, though I’m sure that the Israeli MFA can supply you with a comeplete record of what’s available to whom…but most journies view state sources as “biased” while leaning heavily on what highly politicized NGO’s say and/or what Palestinian sources will tell them. More time than not, the NGO’s and Palestinian “sources” information about water rights and availability ….dovetail.

That said, your point about the water for the settlements being state funded was lost entirely…and honest reading of your text won’t spot that as being your point…only that Jews have water and Arabs….have dust.Nor did I say, nor do I think that you would go out of your way to “portray Jews as evil”, nor was I saying that about Arabs….but I most certainly have more than enough evidence to try and convict Hamas and ilk in any serious court of law of being genocidal, supremacist and inflict child abuse on its youth through a death cult style of indocrtiniation…. something of which you fail to respond to or to counter.

Like Yochanan, the points I’ve raised are met with silence, though you do step out on a limb and state that you believe it’s a stretch to think Hamas murderers (who believe that they are answering their diety’s call to murder the infidel Jew and fight against the existence of a Jewish state) would engage in pedophilia though their prophet (who they follow in word and deed) allows for them to do so.

The more the MSM chooses to refrain from providing a proper context to any given story, the more the average reader strays from the MSM and seeks information elsewhere. KGS

  2. Hi Tim,

  3. I was wondering why this disappeared from the network of these sites, but I still have a few questions Tim's version doesn't answer. The original AP article quoted the grooms if I recall correctly as stating "American won't spoil our happiness". Why would they say such a thing…unless they were marrying child brides we don't approve of? I mean, we're giving them loads of money and are siding with them against Israel, so what does that comment mean? Also, why were the men walking with little girls dressed as brides at the end? Cultural? I might be more convinced if this part didn't look exactly the way Carl in Jerusalem took it. Some more in-depth explanation seems to me to be in order than "it's just a cultural thing".

  4. Actually you pose a really good question, but perhaps the statement is a 'thumbing of the nose' against what these jerks see as the US's support for Israel that's the cause for their misery, instead of addressing the real cause…the Arabs themselves.

    Another point worth mentioning, but I doubt will change the actual facts to the story, is the lack of pics and video of the "women" involved in the marriage cerimony.

    Marshall left his own url link to his blog in his intial comment…but left nothing else that woulf validate what he was saying.

    He mentions that he took the video himself…..but there is nothing much outside of his word, that was he reported was indeed true. I'm not claiming his version to be false, but only that it's lacking in the way of credible evidence.

    He believes that we need to take only his word for sure, but that's not how the world works…especially in the blogosphere. KGS

  5. "The point about municipal pools is that the Israeli govmnt pays for it, what the Pals do in the West Bank isn't the point."

    This comment reminds me of a passage in Alan Dershowitz's book "The Case for Israel"

    “A good working definition of anti-Semitism is taking a trait or an action that is widespread and blaming only the Jews for it. That is what Hitler and Stalin did, and that is what former Harvard University president A. Lawrence Lowell did in the 1920s when he tried to limit the number of Jews admitted to Harvard because ‘Jews cheat.’ When a distinguished alumnus objected on the grounds that non-Jews also cheat, Lowell replied, ‘You’re changing the subject. I’m talking about Jews.’”

    When it comes to the mainstream media, "what the Pals do" is rarely the point. In fact, the overwhelming majority of mainstream media focus is on Israel. The thesis offered is that only Israel is responsible for satisfying the Arabs and making peace. Every time a pro-Israel advocate points out the lack of any symmetry in the ARab world, the response is usually the same: ‘You’re changing the subject. I’m talking about Jews.’

  6. In spite of the denials, I tend to agree that the little girls are the brides. Such marriages are quite frequent within Islam, especially in more fanatical branches where the girls are married off early to avoid the headaches of constantly protecting their virginity or allowing them to grow up and possibly to have independent thoughts and ideas. This book carries one such photo of a little "Palestinian" girl from the early 1900s, all decked out for marriage. See here lower left side:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/0962185558/ref=dp_image_text_0?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books

    from the book:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0962185558

    This is the more extreme "tradition" of course, and in some Islamic nations, such as Afghanistan, they dress up little boys identically to the little girls shown in that video, subjecting them to the similar barbaric child-rape. Review the film "Osama" (not about OBL) for a reality-check.

    If the Islam-apologists wants to make a point about it, all they have to do is to produce a photo of all those "older brides" in the bleachers or wherever else they might have been. Shouldn't be too difficult to come up with one photo of 450 brides.

    PS. on Marshall's point on water rights — he is too smar by half, and full of himself. It is a matter of history, the Israelis were farmers and the Bedouins were herders. The former use water more expeditiously, and develop hydrology and big agricultural productivity in every case of the history of desert lands, while the latter typically are warrior-cults bent upon destroying wells and irrigation systems and enslaving farmer-types, except as needed for watering camels and such.

    Maybe if the Muslims stopped their 1400-year onslaught to massacre, enslave or convert everyone else, they might find others more willing to share. For now, I say they have been soiling their own nest, in addition to the pedo stuff which is rampant in the Muslim world. They won't spontaneously "heal" and become nice people in any case, so long as young boys and girls are continually made the subject of predatory adult sexual urges.

  7. Today they hate Islam tomorrow they hate Christians, Jews, everyone that has a God.

  8. "Today they hate Islam tomorrow they hate Christians, Jews, everyone that has a God"

    If Islam gets its way there won't be any Christians and Jews for us atheists to hate, you dumb fuck.

  9. "Today they hate Islam tomorrow they hate Christians, Jews, everyone that has a God."

    Spoken like a true apologizer for Islam who seeks to deny the brutal crazyness Muslims *themselves* have unleashed upon the world.

    I would say that the last two comments puts things rather succinctly.

  10. The identification of the brides in that video may have been erroneous (where are the actual brides, then?), but the fact is that Islam not only allows child-rape, it exalts it.

    Muhammad did it, so it pleases Allah.

    In fact, Allah ordained it:

    VIII. MOHAMMED THE PEDOPHILE

    Pedophilia as Muslim orthodoxy? In speaking of divorce:

    "And for such of your women as despair of menstruation, if ye doubt, their period (of waiting) shall be three months along with those who have it not. And for those with child, their period shall be till they bring forth their burden. And whosoever keepeth his duty to Allah, He maketh his course easy for him" (Qur'an 65:4).

    Why? Because Allah ordained it, and his apostle practiced it.

    On Mohammed's raping of his nine-year-old "wife":

    "My mother came to me while I was being swung on a swing between two branches and got me down. My nurse took over and wiped my face with some water and started leading me. When I was at the door she stopped so I could catch my breath. I was brought in while Muhammad was sitting on a bed in our house. My mother made me sit on his lap. The other men and women got up and left. The Prophet consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old” (Tabari 9:131).

    "Narrated 'Aisha [Mohammed's six-year-old "bride" and nine-year-old sexual "partner"]: 'Allah's Apostle said (to me), "You were shown to me twice in (my) dream [before I married you]. Behold, a man was carrying you in a silken piece of cloth and said to me, 'She is your wife, so uncover her,' and behold, it was you. I would then say (to myself), 'If this is from Allah, then it must happen.'"'" (Bukhari Volume 9, Book 87, Number 139 and 140).
