Now wait a minute. Seattle transit officials won’t run our AFDI ad above, featuring the most wanted terrorists, on the grounds that it’s “demeaning” to Muslims. This despite the fact that the FBI recently ran essentially the same ad, and Seattle officials had no problem with it. It was not they, but the FBI, who took it down after Islamic supremacists and Leftist politicans complained.
So now CNN has published an article entitled, “Who are the world’s 10 most dangerous terrorists?,” by Tim Lister, October 10. The ten are Ayman al-Zawahiri, Nasir al Wuhayshi, Ibrahim al-Asiri, Ahmed Abdi Godane, Moktar Belmoktar, Abu Muhammad al-Julani, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Sirajuddin Haqqani, Abubakar Shekau, and Doku Umarov — all Muslims.
Has CNN then succumbed to “Islamophobia”? Will Hamas-linked CAIR denounce the network as “Islamophobic” and include a defamatory description of it in its next “Islamophobia” report? Will there be demands to stop reporting on the most wanted terrorists because doing so is “demeaning” to Muslims?
Probably none of that will happen, because CNN has a generally reliable Leftist bias that includes sympathy to jihad and Islamic supremacism. But their piece shows the madness of Seattle transit officials, and of the world we live in.
