January 27, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The Sacramento Bee, first published in 1857 has a long and proud history of being the go-to source for information regarding California’s [collectivist controlled] Legislature. Given this stature the Bee’s management and journos should hold themelves to a higher standard, in a manner befitting such a publication.
As part of the Bee’s content, its website carries press releases from PR Newswire, the world’s largest distributor of news/PR content with an ability to target specific audiences, demographics etc.
We here at PipeLineNews.org LLC, have been carrying on a running conversation [see, Why Is The Sacramento Bee Carrying CAIR Press Releases?, June 29, 2011] with Bee management regarding the paper carrying press releases [see, CAIR: Religious Freedom' Rep Says No to Muslims' Rights in Military] from the Council on American Islamic Relations, an organization which has been identified in Federal Court documents as being associated with the terrorist organization HAMAS, responsible for the deaths of thousands of Israelis, most of them women and children.
"The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling.." [source, The Investigative Project, Federal Dist. Court filing]
Hamas was created by the Muslim Brotherhood to destroy Israel through Islamic jihad.
Of additional note, CAIR received $5,000 “seed money” from the now-defunct entity known as the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development [HLF], a fraudulent Muslim charity which was successfully prosecuted for having provided HAMAS with at least $12 over its lifespan. All of the HLF defendants were found guilty, on a total of 108 combined charges.
One of those found guilty was Ghassan Elashi.
"...Elashi was a founder and Chairman of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). He was also a member of the founding Board of Directors of the Texas branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)..." [source, Discover the Networks]
At the time of his conviction in HLF he was already serving a long prison sentence, having been found guilty in another terror related case
In 2011 when we brought this item to the attention of those who managed the Bee at that time, we were offered the limp excuse that the information originated with PR Newswire and the Bee had no way of choosing which content the organization might distribute.
This writer at the time stressed to those with whom he spoke the serious nature of a large news organization distributing CAIR’s skewed and corrosive propaganda knowing that some of its readers might accept the information as having the imprimatur of the Sacramento Bee.
We were told at the time that the matter would be looked into, but it appears that whatever review might have been conducted resulted in no change of policy.
Would the Bee have the same attitude if the press releases in question were from the American Nazi Party or the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA?
We therefore call on the Sacramento Bee to immediately halt this practice, it reflects a serious lack of judgment on the part of the newspaper and it provides undeserved legitimacy to the thugs who run CAIR as they continue to wage stealth jihad against the United States.
