Liar of the month March : CNN

The right headline should have been:
Palestinians misuse holy site by throwing rocks at Jewish worshippers

But in stead of this the CNN depicted the defenders as aggressors:


Palestinians misuse holy site by throwing rocks at Jewish worshippers

by Take A Pen

Once again Palestinians abuse places of worship for violence. And once again the CNN and some other complacent media mix up the victim with the aggressor.

The event started when part of the incited Palestinian crowd hurdled rocks, from the Temple Mount level where the mosque stands down to the Jewish holy site, the Wailing Wall, some twenty meters below the Palestinian mob, on the Jews praying there without any cover or shelter.

Is there still any reason why Palestinians should be trusted to guard keep holy places?

And is there any reason to believe CNN headlines?
 

You saw above CNN's picture for the story. Look at the truth here:
 

An elderly Jewish worshipper is helped by an Israeli riot policeman to flee the Western or 'Wailing Wall', Judaism's holiest site, after Palestinian crowd hurdled rocks from the Al Aqsa Mosque compound on the Temple Mount, on Friday, April 2, 2004.

 

   
Jewish women worshippers cover against the western wall to protect themselves from rocks hurdled from the Al Aqsa Mosque compound, in Jerusalem, on Friday, April 2, 2004.

To the CNN website editor

Dear Editor

Visiting Israel I have followed CNN for some two weeks. Unfortunately I found that after three and half years of rather unfair coverage by the CNN here, and even after 9/11 and after Madrid, CNN continues to routinely distort its news on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, always to the benefit of muslim aggressors, always against a painstakingly law-abiding Israel.

Lately you wrote in "Protest at Jerusalem holy site ends" Friday, April 2, 2004 Posted: 2321 GMT (0721 HKT) this: "Israeli police entered a Jerusalem holy site and used stun grenades and rubber pellets to quell Palestinians throwing rocks at police and Jewish worshippers at the end of Friday prayers at the Al Aqsa Mosque, according to a police spokesman. "

One can hardly count the slanted inaccuracies and misinformation in this one paragraph only. Your reporter could see it very well, and somehow it can even be figured out when peeling off your twisted chronology, that the event started when part of the incited Palestinian crowd hurdled rocks, from the Temple Mount level where the mosque stands down to the Jewish holy site, the Wailing Wall, some twenty meters below the Palestinian mob, on the Jews praying there without any cover or shelter. In this light what you wrote is at least misleading. But when you say that what you wrote is "according to a police spokesman" it mounts close to a straightforward lie, since the poor spokesman told and explained you just the opposite.

Facts say that the Palestinians were misusing again a Muslim holy site by throwing rocks at Jewish worshippers in the Jewish holy site, and not what CNN insinuated.
By covering-up such an aggression CNN hurts not only Israel's name, what you may intend for good business' sake with millions of Israel-hating clients, but CNN is also encouraging further Palestinian and fundamentalist Muslim aggression, what I am sure is not your intention.
