The headline above is not exactly how it was reported in the mainstream media. Apparently a ‘young raging son’ battered a naked man because the ‘naked man’ was having sex with his mother while his dad was away on work. No mention of his colour, ethnicity, religion or motivation. It was a simple case of young man who got angry. ‘The raging son’ is quoted as saying “what would you have done?” and “this guy was sleeping with my mother”. The ‘young angry son’ was clearly embarrassed by the situation and felt that his mother was behaving inappropriately.
An honour killing is the murder of an individual, due to the perpetrators’ belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonour upon the family or community.
I am sure if this ‘young angry man’ was brown, Pakistani (Asian) or Muslim the headline an coverage of this horrific event would have been very different.
Report news, according to facts not according to your preconceived ideas of certain people or a community.
Since 2004, on average there have been 3 drone attacks every month in Pakistan by the West with approval of the Pakistani government and army. According to ‘Pakistan Body Count’ over 2200 civilians have been killed of which 15% are children. What happened in #Peshawar was barbaric but so are the killing by #Drones. If you want to take revenge then take revenge on all the Killers not only the ones the media highlights. “What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?” – Mahatma Gandhi.
According to the BBC headline Hamas is picking a fight with Israel and just does not want to stop. BBC spitting out Israeli propaganda once again with tax payer money.
Gaza conflict: Hamas vows no Israel ceasefire – A reclusive Hamas commander has rejected suggestions the Palestinian militants are ready for a ceasefire with Israel to end violence in Gaza. Read the rest of the article here.

US president Barak Obama condemned the killing of 43 people as “outrageous” after a female bomber attacked on a large crowd receiving food aid in Khar in the region of Bajaur, North-west of Pakistan.
Well at least the feminists will be happy that the bombing was carried out by female and this brings equality in the ranks of the so called ‘terrorists’.
However Obama went to state that he strongly condemns “the outrageous terrorist attack in Khar,” and that “Killing innocent civilians outside a World Food Programme distribution point is an affront to the people of Pakistan, and to all humanity,” he said.
Mr Obama if you’re so concerned about the killing and murder of innocent civilians why have you not condemned and stopped Drone attacks by your own army in Pakistan. To date Drone attacks in Pakistan has murdered over 2000 innocent women, children and elderly people.
U.S. airstrikes in Pakistan are killing Pakistani civilians, turning public opinion against the government, and U.S. experts say the airstrikes are destabilizing the Pakistani government. Please have the decency to value life for life and halt U.S. airstrikes in Pakistan.
I call Obama a bomber cause those are your bombs.
Today marks the 2 year anniversary of the illegal war on Gaza on 27th December 2008.
Israel carried out a surprise air strike against the Gaza Strip on 27th December 2008. Although Israel’s stated aim was to stop the measly rocket attacks by Hamas by attacking what they claim are the military targets, police stations and Hamas government buildings.
The reality however is that Israel is a bully and in comparison to the huge nuclear arsenal it posses; the action of Israel can only amount to bullying. The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. All borders are controlled and blocked by the Israeli’s and the Egyptians. The three-week war on Gaza resulted in over 1400 Palestinian deaths, of whom most were children and women, in comparison to 13 Israeli deaths, of whom most were soldiers.
But of course we heard the normal victim story from the Zionists that they are the victims of rocks and how they tried their best to target only Hamas controlled areas and how Hamas is using civilians as human shields. Israel went on to use white phosphorus which is an illegal substance under international law.
The reality is that Israel used the measly attacks by Hamas, who in turn where firing as a result of constant harassing by the Israeli’s to attack the Gaza Strip. A war and occupation that was meticulously carried out is not the affect of a reaction but a pre-planned attacked to cower the people of Gaza to accept its illegal occupation of Palestine.
My problem as always has been how the freedom loving, democracy fighting West always turns a blind eye to the blatant crimes committed by the Zionists. How can anyone in their right mind trust and have faith in the Politics of the West. Do not get me wrong, the Arab and the Muslim world is just as much to blame as they stood in silence whilst the genocide occurred for the whole world to watch on prime time TV.
