Normally, I ignore this kind of attack, but this one was just too interesting and hypocritical to not toy with.
Earlier, we published an article on a number of Albanians, who happened to be Muslims, who had risked their lives to protect Jews persecuted by Nazi Germany. It's a rather interesting story that one rarely hears about when it comes to WWII and the Holocaust. It turns out that a well known photographer spent several years hunting down the families involved and taking pictures that are now on display at a Jewish Temple in St. Louis.
Though I suspect Ahdiminijihadist wouldn't like the story, the backlash on Twitter was from only one twit who professes a pro-Israel viewpoint. It wasn't that @LibertyLynx thought the story untrue, but that she didn't like some that are publicizing the story.
Though at one point she accused us of reporting to Soros or parroting the Obama Administration, she later said she didn't read the site.
Ok, so that's the drama portion and here's the moral and position portion:
We report facts, some of which we like and others we don't.
We don't pull punches when it comes to politicians that undermine Support of Our Troops or National Defense.
We do Honor those that do the right thing, particularly when they risk death.
We do Condemn those that commit crimes, sometimes small, but particularly grievous, such as terrorists.
We will NOT bow down to the political correctness of any quarter: not CAIR, and not some anti-something of the other side. We call it like we see it. The Holocaust was an atrocity, as was the Soviet atrocity of their Jews, as is Islamist attacks by Hamas and Hezbollah on Jewish children today, as is Ba'athist support of anti-semitism. Those that deny those atrocities and wish to suppress reporting on them are just as wrong as those that would attempt to deny the Honor of those Albanians that protected Jews from it.
I have fought alongside Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, Animalists, Atheists, and Agnostics against Islamists and Ba'athists. I will not ignore their Valor or Honor, just because you don't like someone that also recognizes the risks that were taken to save lives.
But attempting to paint me as Soros or Cindy Sheehan because you don't like that we reported on the Honorable Actions of Albanians who risked their lives to save Jews from persecution in no way makes my argument that it did happen progressive propaganda. In fact, the tactics used are more similar to those of Soros & Salinsky and the goals you state of suppressing stories of the efforts of Albanians sounds quite revisionist to me.
