Saudi Arabians are using the news outlet Al Arabia as a black propaganda weapon to make “terrorists” out of the Qataris, but now we have our own local version.
Al Arabia has used every disgusting method to make the “Friday of Wrath” in Egypt suit the category of “act of terror.” They are making every effort to make a religious scholar who gave a fatwa supporting these marches, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, look like a “terrorist.” Because he was in town squares, because he was on the street, they are attacking him and the Muslim Brotherhood over this.
They recently made a scandal of a story that regarded his communications and contacts with Turkey as proof of al-Qaradawi’s terror crimes.
Also, al-Qaeda reportedly issued a video message condemning the embargo against Qatar and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. This has also been included in the news file as “open proof of terror relations which leave no need for other proof.” This was broadcast and posted shamelessly.
They were unarmed, non-violent protest demonstrations. But they were viewed as encouraging the people to armed rebellion, a call to uprising against public order and terrorist insurrection. They were considered an invitation to anarchy and chaos.
Just follow Al Arabia, and your chin will drop before their shameful smear campaign. The most innocent search for rights becomes the subject of criminalization, demonization and delegitimization … The have surpassed all past “militant journalism” examples.
These were bad examples that were to be avoided. But as if I had sensed it, read this story in the Turkish press slowly and try to stomach it:
“Terror organizations have given support to Republican People’s Party (CHP) chair Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu
who hit the road using the sentence given to Enis Berberoğlu as an excuse. The Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ), the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party
(PKK) and the Gezi Park provocateurs have united behind Kılıçdaroğlu.”
“Fellow marchers of the CHP
leader, who is protesting the arrest, once again have become terror networks. PKK, FETÖ and Gezi provocateurs are arm in arm with the CHP…”
Doesn’t this remind you of the typical Al Arabia style?
The rest is even worse. They add them all together and write the check for the march: “After the decision to march from Ankara
to Istanbul, terrorists were also mobilized. Following the CHP’s announcement that it would hold a so-called ‘justice’ march, the terror network PKK
went back to its ‘barricade/ditch dreams.’ The PKK
supported the march, using it as separatist material.”
“Huge applause came from FETÖ. Their lawyers and followers also supported the march. Can Gezi protestors stay back? They of course also hit the road… The Gezi provocateurs who are guided by foreign powers dreaming of converting the march into an insurrection are also on the stage! The United June Movement called for street demonstrations…”
Comparisons should not lead to misunderstandings, but for the sake of truth, doesn’t this remind one of the Al Arabia style?
Doesn’t it look like calling Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood to account for al-Qaeda?
If the opportunisms of the PKK, FETÖ and the axis of evil are associated with the march, if the march is regarded as proof of the alliance of betrayal and the dirty and dark relationship between them, then how is it any different than the Al Arabia logic?
This is of course not a march of rage, an outburst of wrath or a show of public indignation. It is a slow, whining walk. Isn’t even this much not a legal or legitimate right?
I cannot understand why the reactions are so harsh, so unproportioned and so exaggerated.
In the face of those who have refused to divulge where they have hidden justice, which one of us hasn’t sought justice on the streets?
Didn’t we drag them on the ground, the prohibitive orders of courts against freedom of belief and freedom of thought? Didn’t we ever get into line protesting in front of courthouses?
Didn’t we ever complain about our country loudly to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), the European Union
and the free world? Shall we now erase everything we knew as correct?
It was a democratic right to criticize, satirize and condemn justice then, but now it is illegal, now it is a crime and now it is treachery, is that so?
