Their Perspective

While reading AlJazeera, I came across this conspiracy theory article written by Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich. It starts with Israel blowing up an American ship that LBJ worked to cover up all the way to the present events happening in Iraq, Iran, and the Middle-East. Soraya starts off with a quote from Adolf Hitler: The broad mass of a nation … will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one.

Below is an excerpt of the final two paragraphs of an article.

The offenders, in preparing evil for a nation, first damage its reputation. In line with Adolf Hitler, the neo-cons are delivering bigger lies for a more violent conflict. They are accusing Iran of a nuclear threat in spite of the IAEA inspections to the contrary, further destabilizing Iraq by arming and feeding the frenzy on all sides, and stoking the flames by such incendiary accusations as: Iran is now arming the Taliban too.
Born equal under law, humanity wanes as it gives way to greed and deception. With hearts turned to stone, we decline compassion on our soil and witness life extinguish in our own hospitals. Will there be compassion left in us when more dead and dismembered bodies get buried under the heavy weight of treachery, or are we the monsters who by remaining deaf to the wailing of the mourners create the Hitlers of this world?

Some questions:
-As members of "The West" how does this line of thinking strike you?
-Why is it that Islamic nations tend to have a different slant on history than The West? Is it not the same historical events we are detailing?
-Do you find the article as being rational?
-How do the Hitler comparisons strike you?

Aljazeera.com is unrelated to the satellite TV channel Al Jazeera,
which operates websites in both Arabic ( www.aljazeera.net ) and English english.aljazeera.net (i.e. Aljazeera TV sites are hosted at .NET not .COM). The people who own Aljazeera.com have no connections to aljazeera TV channel.

Have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aljazeera.com for more infio

Thanks for the information. I will close the gap between "Al" and "Jazeera". The link still points to the correct place.
