CAEF Letter to Post Media President and CEO
Mr. Andrew McLeod,
President and CEO
Post Media Inc.
Dear Mr. McLeod,
After reading days of tripe from most media, hearing very biased and bent news and opinion pieces on our national radio broadcaster, I must say it was extraordinarily refreshing, even life affirming to read a few articles in the National Post and then also in the Toronto Star, that spoke of the nature and context of the Islamo-fascist war against Israel.
It seems to be a well-guarded secret by much of the Canadian media, that Hamas is a terrorist organization supported by a terrorist regime in Iran, terror financiers in Qatar, aided by anti-democratic Turkey, all of which wish to destroy the democratic Jewish state of Israel. Over the past few millennia we have come to call that Jew hatred, or by the fancy, Nazi-inspired term “antisemitism.”
I have written to praise and thank you, the editorial staff and the journalists, op ed writers and supporters of Post Media publications, without which the brutality of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah and other terror affiliates would continue to be presented as the impoverished, pitiful, oppressed whose daily dose of repression of their own citizens is the result of Israeli actions rather than of the oppressive leaders of these barbaric organizations. As sophisticated as their weaponry, their stealth, and their propaganda, they are mind-bendingly inhumane. The tragedy is not only felt in Israel and among the citizens of Gaza, and the PA controlled territories, but across the globe as these sadists suck up energy from social justice causes better directed at the victims of Marxist-Communist and Islamo-fascist ideologies. Tragically, with media support, these sadistic ideas are being imported to Canada, are raging and rioting on our streets and threatening the Jewish population.
Thank you for presenting the truth; preventing more media-induced misery. The Nazis proved the efficacy of controlling the message and we know where that ended. Please keep focusing your message on truth and it will prevail. I have sent the following message to the editors at the Toronto Sun and National Post: Here is what the world of journalism should be about and we commend the National Post and the Toronto Sun, both owned by Post Media, for being committed to it: "Seek the truth, hear the truth, learn the truth, love the truth, speak the truth, hold the truth and defend the truth until death".
