The process of designing headline news was elegantly satirized in the
November 10, 2001 — The Washington Times has faked two photos in its coverage of the War On Islam. One actor was used twice: first cast as an enemy of America, then nine days later, as a friend of America. This sham illustrates the contrived nature of the War on Islam. It indicates that those who run the press in America are those who designed this war.
Meet "The Face of Hate."
On October 20, 1001, The Washington Times ran an 8 x 6 inch color photo above the fold on the front page. The caption under the photo reads:
"Face of hate: A Muslim man looks up at the stage as he prays at an anti-America rally in Peshawar, Pakistan."
Here is a close up of the hater:
The credit under the photo reads: "Photo by Gerald Herbert/The Washington Times."
Meet A "Friend or Relative" of the late US Ally, Abdul Haq
On October 29, The Washington Times featured another photograph, again credited to Gerald Herbert, this one measuring 8 x 5 inches. It also appeared above the fold on pg. 1.
The caption under the photo reads: "Friends and relatives of Afghan military opposition commander Abdul Haq prayed at a gathering at his home in Peshawar, Pakistan, yesterday. The legendary mujahideen leader was captured and executed by the Taliban in southern Afghanistan Friday while he was on a mission seeking defectors." Now look at a close-up of the man on the extreme left of the photo.
Compare the face with the face of the October 20 hater.
The hater and the friend/relative of the late Abdul Haq are one and the same.
The October 29 friend of America wears an innocent expression, but the October 20 hater scowls like a Jack-o-Lantern. The hater's eyebrows have been crudely filled in to form a monobrow, and his black beard line is high on his face, accentuating his sinister look. Theater Make-up 101 …
Now look at the other "mourners" in the October 29 photo. Note the strange facial expressions and hand gestures.
This country is slaughtering thousands of Afghans who have committed no crimes against us, in order to steal Afghani mineral and oil wealth, to trigger a larger war against other Islamic nations, and to eradicate any opposition to Imperium Judaicum.
No, the faces of hate are not worn by those uttering Islamic prayers. The faces of hate are possessed by the schlockmeisters who run America.
