Media Matters’ Dishonest Misrepresentation of Pigford Presser

Keith Olbermann’s New Show To Air In Familiar Slot: 8 p.m. Gotta love the optimism. Olbermann's MSNBC show had dismal ratings against Fox and CNN, now he's on a channel that's only in 18,000 homes. Even if all 18K tune in, he's still as watched as paint drying.

New York Times Covers Up for Its Favorite Muslim Brother
From the article but read the whole thing.
Concealing inconvenient facts is part of the sophisticated deception art practiced by the Muslim Brotherhood and by Islamist scholars like Ramadan; and in this they are aided by the formerly mainstream media. The IHT’s byline for Ramadan, correctly discloses that he is the grandson of Hassan Al Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, but it fails to mention Mr. Ramadan’s close political ties to the Muslim Brotherhood today, or his periodic extremist pronouncements — like his suggestion that car bombings against U.S. soldiers in Iraq are legitimate. It also omits the fact that under the Bush administration, Ramadan’s American visa was revoked for his having taken part in fundraising for Hamas in France.

Ramadan is usually extremely guarded in his public speech. However, Americans for Peace and Tolerance has obtained – and Palestinian Media Watch has translated — a sermon delivered by Ramadan in Paris in 2008, where he strays from the usual talking points about peace and democracy.
Allah, we ask You because You are Allah. Allah, strengthen the faith of our brothers and sisters in Palestine. Allah, strengthen their faith in Palestine and make them triumphant over their enemy, Your enemy, the enemy of Islam with Your mercy, oh Generous One.

Allah, strengthen their faith in Palestine, in Chechnya, Afghanistan, in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, in Egypt, Sudan, Kashmir, and in every land, and on every battlefield. Allah, strike our enemies, Your enemies, the enemies of Islam.
This prayer in Arabic belies Ramadan’s lip-service to peace and democracy. It also exposes his true feelings toward the Muslim Brotherhood’s political opponents – as well as what he would like to see happen to them
