By Jonathan J. Ariel, published 13/8/2014

Turkey stands condemned of Holocaust denial, genocide and persecution of minorities, but you wouldn't know that reading the centre left press.

Yes Johnathon, Fairfax's seemingly incoherent incomprehensible current editorial policy, is perplexing, to say the least.
Just what did they expect Israel to do, when fired on by literally thousands of Hamas's rockets?
Parade up and down like sideshow alley targets? (Ha missed again!)
The Butcher of Baghdad pales into insignificance, beside the millions being systematically butchered by Isil, and or the atrocities committed against Christian minorities and others, in Syria and elsewhere, all in the name of Islam!
And we know what we did to the Butcher of Baghdad, in the name of final deserved justice!
The saddest part Johnathon, is that the world still possesses nuclear weapons, none of which will be scrapped/rerouted into civilian service, before we use them just one more time!
And given the current circumstances, probably in the middle east?
Justifiable? Possibly?
And before an incomprehensibly evil Isil, can recruit a civilian population to hide behind!?

Jonathon
There is an old adage in our Christian based secularised western liberal Democracies.
'Two wrongs don't make a right.'

You should bear in mind even minded Australians deplore the advocating, rationalizing and use of violence by all the dark age based religions of the middle east. We see right through and continually suffer the narrow focused propaganda blokes like you and Singer keep trying to inflict upon us. We have eyes and minds of our own.
Our underlying philosophies are of forgiveness and peace.
What does your writing show are your underlying philosophy. Vengence and violence?

The Left still haven't forgiven Israel for siding with the U.S over the Soviets.

I doubt that ten years ago there were many Australians who cared much or thought much about Islam. Getting to know Islam has been a very slow process for many.

Today our knowledge is much greater in spite of the PC movementís activities throughout western democracies. Our progressive media has used PC to restrict, modify and excuse what we now know and censor the development of our understanding.

The UN and EU have ďdined outĒ for a very long time on their preoccupation with Palestinian issues but this is now coming unraveled. Not because they have eased up on their rhetoric but because they havenít.

Recent ugly Islamic events made public, predominantly on social media, are in the process of isolating the vocal progressive minority for whom the grand narrative of Islamic enlightenment and peace is so important.

As Islamic reality is exposed to the public, questions are asked, they investigate more, they seek even more examples, they share and they talk. As progressive media counters the growing understanding of Islamic deeds, they put before us even more of their views, comments and opinions of Islam. They peddle even more of the rhetoric that is now exposed for what it really is. But in doing so they are highlighting the fact that this is precisely what they have been doing to Australianís for a very long time.

We are expected to swallow their grand narrative. After all they are the media and can control what information we get?

Not any longer. Sure we get a disproportionate volume of progressive N&CA fed to us and they seem to think that their view is a majority view. Certainly they would be correct if this were measured by quantity and volume.

This Morgan Poll from 2013 also confirms that progressives are now a minority. I have to wonder what these figures would look like in 2014 after recent revelations of medieval barbarism across so many Islamic nations, by so many different types of Islamists against so many different types of victims for so many different reasons?

Getting to know you Islam!

How odd. I mainly read independent/left newspapers. I avoid the Murdoch holdings like the plague and most right wing propaganda sources as well. And have done for years. Yet I'm very informed regarding the Armenian genocide. I wonder how I know about it?

I thought the 'right' always accuses the 'left' to be bleeding heart do-gooders who want to rescue everybody. It stands to reason the left would be the first to hone in on horrors visited upon people somewhere, remember, the left is generally against military strikes, being peace-niks and all.

That's where the focus on what is happening in Gaza stems from.

Oh, and here's a link from a 'left' wing source in Israel. On what the Israelis think of the Armenian genocide. http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2014/04/israel-armenian-genocide-turky-prime-minister-erdogan-moral.html#

Weird. The left calling for recognition. The current right's darling 'fence-sitting'.
