Amanpour's ravings...

I watched Christiane Amanpour's two shows on radical jews and muslims today and yesterday and I was horrified.

Tonight she covered radical islam and it almost appeared as if she was trying to excuse Islam from the crimes committed in its name. Totally absent in her program were the genocidal groups of Hamas and Hezbollah - groups not only dedicated to the destruction of Israel, but of all Jews. How on earth could she miss them????

She did talk to Hayaan Hirsi Ali, but did not mention that she had to leave the Netherlands and take residence in the United States.

And, while she found time to talk to a devout American muslim woman, she didn't have time to talk to Irshad Manji.

Her first segment on Londonistan was the best...and then it was all downhill.

Shame on Amanpour and shame on CNN.

By the way, her show on the Jewish radicals was equally poor. First of all - two equate musilim terrorists with Jewish terrorists and (tomorrow) Christian fundamentalists really misses the point. I know which one scares me the most and it ain't a few radical jews living in the west bank. It certain ain't some Christian fundamentalists.

I can't stand to watch anything Amanpour is involved with. Her bigotry and bias are so evident that they turn my stommach. The only thing I ever enjoyed that had her in it was when the hotel she was in was shelled by the Americans. Her self important twittery and outrage was beyond hillarious. Here she was sitting in a hotel where snipers are shooting at the Americans and she was blaming the Americans for defending themselves with a tank! Did she really think that the Americans wouldn't shell the hotel because she was in it?

She wasn't talking about terrorists in the documentary - she was talking about "religious fundamentalists" - duh.

A whole other documentary could be done about terrorists.

It is about religion not terrorists. How religion lead to the problems.

I thought it was well done.

Christians tonight.

Proof that wars are about religion!

To anonymous - It's not religion that is the problem, it's human nature. For example, there are the Cambodians killed by the athiestic Khmer Rouge (the total number of victims being about a quarter of the entire population), not to mention the tens of millions at the hands of "Uncle Joe" Stalin and the great Chairman Mao. Your faithophobia is showing.
