I feel the mainstream media is priming the world to enter into another unnecessary war. Their hypocrisy is unbelievable.
Palestinians are suffering for more than 70 years from an Apartheid regime. Iraqis are suffering for more than 20 years because of an illegal war forced on them. The Afghans, for more than 25 years because of the greed of the Old White men. And, many other non-White countries because of the “Western” country's greed for money and power. Yet, these liberal Western democracies accuse others of war crimes when they have blood on their hands.
In short, civilians bear the pain and suffering because of these greedy folk whose sole purpose seems to be total world domination and submission.
One of the most compelling encounters in They takes place when Manzoor meets Gary Jones, editor of the Daily Express, who, when appointed to the role, made the decision to stop running the Islamophobic headlines for which the newspaper had become notorious. (“Muslim Plot to Kill Pope” and “Muslims Tell British: Go to hell!”, to name just two). “I went into my first news conference,” Jones tells Manzoor, “and said, ‘Look, I know none of you in the room are going to say you’re racist, but we’re not going to publish this stuff again because it’s fundamentally wrong.’” Manzoor notes that “something that was so toxic could be changed overnight by one person’s decision-making and the circulation didn’t change at all.”
