They All Hate Africa

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 11, 2012

Russia’s global television news network, “RT” – which is the second most-watched foreign news channel in the United States after the BBC – like most of the mainstream media outlets elsewhere — brings seldom Africa-relevant themes in its 24-hour service program. If it brings, it is either to hammer the United States hard or to demonstrate the insignificance of the African continent in world affairs. The station also intoxicated with the craziness of the Middle East.

The current affairs debate program, “Cross-Talk” is hosted by a biased, left-wing, anti-Israel and self-hating American journalist, Peter Lavelle.

This particular program from July 9, 2012 on African matters is supposed to include African guests, but no African was invited. They say, “the African Union” is incapable of doing somethin positive. But, the reality is, with all the means’ that are available to it, with all the existing problems and tough challenges its enemies present, the AU is doing a relatively decent job in tackling the continents diverse problems. African peacekeepers are all over the continent trying to pacify hotspots like Somalia, Sudan, Liberia, Sierra Leone and the Congo.

Whereas, the Muslim world, even with the presence of passionate Western administrators, experts, advisers and babysitters (Iraq, Afghanistan,Egypt), with the flow of trillions of dollars, with the degree of attention they are given by the medias, they are still unable to move forward, in the contrary, they blame and demonize those who give them help, and continue killing each other playing the victimhood card. Even the 67-year old tool of Arab imperialism, the Arab League is not capable of taking the Syrian situation in its own hands. In fact, the league wants the West to do the dirty job for them. And the world community whines with them why the West is not helping while they are killing each other. Isn’t it ironic, the African, Mr. Kofi Annan, a former U.N. Chief, who let the Tutsis of Rwanda genocidally murdered back in 1994, is serving tirelessly as a special envoy to Syria for the United Nations and the Arab League.


Look how they all show their contempt for Africa, ignorance and disinterest towards its people. “Why should America care for Africa?”, they ask, rhetorically. Compare how emotional and passionate they get, including the moderator, whenever they discuss matters on Syria, Iraq, Egypt or on the so-called Palestinians.
