There seems still some confusion over whether the attack on Nairobi's Westgate Mall has been successfully smothered. Lots of accounts of "Yes, it's over, but we still hear gunfire."
Be that as it may, I listened to Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta's dignified and very presidential address on the Westgate Mall. Our own Kenyan in the White House could learn a thing or two on how to give those sort of difficult addresses. Kenyatta was determined, modest, informative, consoling, patriotic, and did not declare himself the hero or even the main player in the events of these past few days. He hardly used the word "I," and gave credit where it was due. Great job, Mr. President.
In contrast, I would note that the once-great BBC is unable to call a murderer, a murderer. The BBC ran a piece, September 24, which shows, again, how dhimmitude has taken over the Western media. Please note, for example, the following from that article,
Several bodies - including those of "terrorists" - are thought to be trapped under rubble after three floors of the building collapsed following a blaze on Monday, officials said.Notice the use of quotation marks? Is there some doubt that gunmen who burst into a "gun free" shopping mall, proceed to murder some 70 unarmed persons in the name of Islam, and are backed by a known terrorist group by the name of Al Shabab, are terrorists? Apparently there is for the editors at the BBC which insists on calling the members of Al Shabab fighters. Nowhere in that article does it mention that non-Muslims were the target of those "fighters."
I guess we will just have to use our own set of quotation marks when referring to BBC "journalists."
