Guardian’s sympathy towards Khadr Adnan & indifference to his terror group’s victims, by the numbers
Surviving friends and family members of the more than 200 Israeli civilians murdered by Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), an Islamist terror group which split from the Muslim Brotherhood because the MB was deemed too moderate, will never be provided a forum at the Guardian.
The grief of loved ones – their pain, and the indelible mark left on their soul by the staggering cruelty of the violence meted out by a movement inspired by the desire to rid the region of the immutable offense of a sovereign Jewish presence – will likely never be given a voice at ‘Comment is Free’.
Inversely, the Guardian published five separate sympathetic pieces about the Islamic Jihad terrorist, Khadr Adnan, who is scheduled to be released by Israeli authorities in April after being held in administrative detention for his involvement with PIJ.
Here’s a summary of the coverage:
- Guardian/CiF pieces sympathetic to Islamic Jihad terrorist, Khader Adnan: 5
- Guardian/CiF pieces critical of Adnan or sympathetic to PIJ victims: 0
- Total words used in five Guardian/CiF pieces sympathetic to Adnan: 3008
- Total words in those five pieces even noting Adnan’s “alleged” “militant” affiliations: 33
- Total number murdered in Israel by PIJ in terror attacks: At least 217
- Total number of children murdered by PIJ in terror attacks: 15
- Number of those injured or maimed by PIJ attacks: Several Hundred
- Most obscene characterization of Adnan in the Guardian (courtesy of Randa Musa, Adnan’s wife, in her CiF commenary): “I know my husband is not selfish.”
Indeed, here’s the selfless Adnan passionately encouraging fellow Palestinians to sacrifice their lives in one last full measure of devotion in the service of murdering innocent Israeli civilians.
Finally, here’s a list of those murdered in terrorist attacks planned or carried out by Adnan’s terrorist group:
