  1. Bismillah, I give Montel credit for bringing up the media’s misdirected focus on the coverage of deaths. However I’m shocked by his initial question and how quick the newsboy responded. “How many PEOPLE have died in Iraq since January 1?” Newsboy quickly responds with his answer, but they both undershot the correct answer by up to a hundred, maybe even a few hundred.

    Are Iraqis not considered PEOPLE? Are U.S. troops the only PEOPLE in Iraq? Even the supposed Iraqi troops who are basically working for the U.S., can’t they at least be considered three-fifths of a person?

    As many as 1.5 million PEOPLE have died in Iraq since the invasion started, but the only number we hear on the news is the number of coalition troops (Read: Good Guys). Every time a Coalition troop is killed the headline reads: “1 U.S. Soldier, 200 others killed.” Who are the others? To the U.S. media and many of their readers, the others are nameless nobodys who got what was coming to them. To me, they were my brothers and sisters, rahimahumullah. And don’t get me wrong I don’t celebrate upon hearing of the death of a U.S. troop. But are we to believe that American lives just worth more than Iraqi lives?

    Up to 1.5 million vs. 4,240. Do the math.

  2. “And don’t get me wrong I don’t celebrate upon hearing of the death of a U.S. troop.”

    why not? i sure do.

  3. What is this bloody fixation with “the troops”, “our boys” in America? Why aren’t they mentioning the Iraqi civilians? Every death of an American soldier is justified… they are occupiers and oppressors.

    What has the Muslim community in the states actually achieved? Every Muslim American with a backbone, that is in the public eye, and has the courage to speak their mind is a revert!!! The rest all seem to be “yes sir” “no sir” Muslims.

    Also why aren’t there any Muslim protests in the States?
    Have you become that apathetic?

    As long as you have your Mc Diets, MTV, American idol, Comedy central… everything else seems to be fine with you people….

  4. “But are we to believe that American lives just worth more than Iraqi lives?”

    Is the Pope Catholic?

  5. The media is full of crap. They all chat a load of SH*T. They all have heart attacks over one stupid american soldier (Who deserves death which i celebrate with happiness) and dont give a damn about the children, women, men and the old muslims in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan. But then agian who are we to say that these people dont give a damn about the muslims being killed when us mulims ourselves dont give a damn about them. We just watch the news and at the moment we’l be angry at our muslims deaths but after a while we go back to our own lives and forget about our helpless Muslim brothers and sisters. i acn’t do much my self apart from pray. but dont worry. Allah says that the last victory will belong to the Muslims. George Bush and co will get it big time from God. if not in this world, deffinately in the next world.
