"God's Warrior" Strikes Back at CNN Jihad-Denial

Featured on CNN's "God's Jewish Warriors," Pastor Gary Cristfaro refutes secularist Muslim host Christiane Amanpour's distorted whitewash of imperialist Islamism. He claims that CNN's producers biased the series to reflect their personal agenda - to ameliorate Islamic-advocated terrorism by drawing a moral equivalency to political activism among Jews and Christians.

He claims CNN's producers failed to report any of the legal facts justifying Jewish rights to worship and live in Judea and Samaria without encumbrance. He alleges that they disregarded the facts they encountered in investigating Jewish communities living there, and the Christians' motivations for defending them.

MSNBC's Dan Abrams accuses CNN's Amanpour of "shoddy journalism," calling God's Warriors "an advocacy... an opinion piece" in the N.Y. Observer.

"Amanpour's Apologia" by Investors Business Daily

Global Jihad: CNN's chief apologist for Islam, Christiane Amanpour, has gone too far this time. Not content to just whitewash jihad, she says Jews and Christians are terrorists, too.

Phyllis Chesler's insightful 2-part analysis of the series is "CNN'S Master Plan: Part One" and "The Gospel According to Christiane".

"CNN: Is this for real?"
In the Jerusalem Post, Prof. Robert Eisenman provides historical and legal corrections to Amanpour's agenda-driven errors.

..."What is, therefore, the legal status of the so-called "Occupied Territories" and what is their extent? There is none. They are in a kind of legal limbo, that is, they are, strictly speaking, legally unrecognized and who knows their extent? This has yet to be determined by negotiation and, like most of the arguments one usually hears (including those on Amanpour's program), superficial. So how can the Geneva Conventions supposedly be applied to an area whose legal status was never legally or rightfully determined in any meaningful way in the first place, except for the Mandate for Palestine in 1920-23 by the League of Nations and manhandled ever since by all legal parties concerned but still rightfully recognizing a Jewish right of settlement all the way up to the Jordan River and, if the truth were told, beyond? This is one legal nicety which has never been gainsaid, whether one likes it or does not like it...

Anyhow, these are legal complexities for which the reader might wish to look at my book: Islamic Law in Palestine and Israel: A History of the Survival of Tanzimat and Shari'a in the British Mandate and the Jewish State, E. J. Brill, Leiden, 1978."
