Media Mentions Jihad

The lamestream media told you:

In reports reprinted nationwide from the Washington Post, the death of Zarqawi will not stop the "jihad," and "the earth will shake underneath the enemy." In a direct quote from an Islamist website, promoted in front page stories, "For he who practices jihad for God's sake, God is alive and immortal."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Almost breaking with its traditions, the Post and other lamestream outlets have prominently used the word "jihad," although placing it in quotes each time. Whether this rare "usage" will be sufficient for readers to understand that America faces Muslim religious jihad and not some sort of amorphous faceless terrorism is unknown.

Intelligent readers everywhere quickly picked up on the distorted translation, where God is mentioned twice instead of what Muslims would actually say, which is Allah. Some Christians were outraged at the sacrilegious, blasphemous and erroneous use of the Lord's name in connection with murderous Islamic warriors. The Post issued no correction.
