Mediterranean Update Tuesday: Corrupt U.S. Media Covers-Up Islamist takeover in Libya

What would you call a pro-Sharia political party who cut a deal with the Islamists before the election?!? If you're the corrupt American media and you need to cover for Barack Obama's catastrophic foreign policy, you call them pro-Western.  This is laughable, the political party currently leading in Libya is nothing of the sort.

Yesterday, I posted this Breitbart piece on Libya on Facebook.  One of my lefty friends from college challenged the accuracy of the piece.  I'm grateful to him for issuing the challenge, because in exploring how the MSM has covered this event, I found a textbook example of media corruption.

The leading party in Libya is called the National Forces Alliance.  They describe themselves as moderate Islamists who support Sharia as the main source of legislation with 'protection for minority rights'.  Of course, there's no such thing as a moderate Islamist.  At best, 'protection for minority rights' under Sharia means dhimmitude. For the record, Ayatollah Khomeini said the same thing in 1979.

This is a farce. As Daniel Greenfield explains:
The [Muslim] Brotherhood needs Jibril [the NFA candidate] out front to reassure foreign investors. In Egypt, the Brotherhood had front men like Khairat El-Shater, who could sell the Brotherhood as a friendly capitalist venture, but in Libya, Abdul Hakim Belhadj of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, with ties to Al-Qaeda, heading up the Al-Watan Party is a much less reassuring figure even for the most useful of useful idiots. Suleiman Abdelkader of the Justice and Construction Party is hardly any more reassuring, even to those journalists who see moderate Islamists under every Jihad.
Barack Obama also needs a faux 'moderate' to take power in country launched an unconstitutional war against last year.  He can't have another Egypt.

So, how did the U.S. Media cover this event?!?

Again, this is a pro-Sharia party who has already cut a deal with the Islamists.


Update: It's not just the liberal media either.  The establishment Conservative media has it's head up its keister as well.  This act of wishful thinking appeared in the Wall St Journal Today.
