Sometimes the Media surprises even the most hardened observers, and today’s report on Iraqi Terrorist Muqtada al Sadr was just one of those reports. Today the news service found the need to show the soft side of the terrorist with a long piece on his charity work. The question is Why? Why would would they try to show the light side of a murderer? This irresponsibility is truly disgusting:
But for the slum’s 2.5 million predominantly Shiite residents, Sadr plays a different role, one of humanitarian-in-chief — gifting money to families of the dead and injured, resettling displaced families free of charge and, every month, helping to feed tens of thousands of Sadr City’s most impoverished people. Sadr offers the funds for any victim of American weapons in Sadr City.
This is shameless pandering to a murderer and terrorist. McClatchy won’t even admit that Sadr is financed by Iran.
Where Sadr’s funding comes from is unclear. The U.S. military says that the Shiite government in Iran is a major backer of Sadr’s movement, a charge that Iran has denied. Sadr aides say their support comes primarily from donations by wealthy Iraqi Shiites.
Sadr has little income and his people don’t have an economy for Sadr to exploit. So where does McClatchy think that his cash comes from if not Iran? And, why would Iran want to give “charity” to Iraq’s citizens? They wouldn’t. They back Sadr because he kills people, not because he feeds the poor. Sadr is no humanitarian. He couldn’t care less about people other than how he can use them to continue his terrorist activities. Let’s put it this way: if a child predator gives a child some candy, should we praise the molester for selflessly feeding the children? Obviously, the molester’s motives are to rape the child, so the food is a lure not an altruistic gift! This is the same with Sadr and his henchmen. They are holding a bit of candy out so that they may further rape the people of Iraq. But, to McClatchy, Sadr is a really good guy because of this supposed “charity work.” We might recall that McClatchy News is the service responsible for the story that lamented that less violence in Iraq was bad on Iraqi gravediggers. So obviously, McClatchy has a reputation for absurdity to live up to! Truly shameless.
