    CNN professionalism at stake in Egypt

    On the 18th of August, 25 soldiers on leave, in civilian clothes, were forced off public transportation by hooded terrorists. They were made to lie on the ground on their stomachs with their hands tied behind their backs. Then they were shot in cold blood.
    This horrific act of cold blooded murder, worthy only of Nazis or barbarians, was reported by CNN as follows:
    “Suspected militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades struck two buses carrying security forces and killed the soldiers in the city of Rafah, on the border between Egypt and Gaza.”
    “The Sinai Peninsula is a lawless area”
    Furthermore, CNN continues to glorify the ‘Muslim’ Brotherhood and paint it as an oppressed, moderate minority.
    No matter if MB leaders have publicly stated that all terrorist acts in Sinai would cease if Morsi is reinstated.
    No matter if pictures of Ben Laden and Al-Qaida flags are raised in MB demonstrations.
    No matter if the terrorist organization Hamas is officially affiliated with the MB.
    No matter if all ‘Muslim’ terrorist groups in Egypt are offshoots of the MB.
    No matter if Al-Qaida leader Ayman el-Zawhery has called on his followers to support the MB and that his brother was arrested doing just that.

    I accuse CNN and its underling Al-Jezira (or is it the other way around?) of unprofessional and unethical conduct.
    If there is someone in CNN with a shred of human decency left, I hope he will have the courage to publish this report and try to steer the network back to reporting rather than painting.
