Hizbullah Defeats "Gay" Israeli Army, WorldNetDaily Bogus?

I've been M.I.A. for a few days, roaming the countryside with my sister, and this is what I come back to? WorldNetDaily yesterday reported that al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade leader Abu Oudai came out with a gay slur in his exaltation of Hizbullah's victory. The article, "Hezbollah defeated 'gay' Israeli soldiers" is long, but the gay quote only a few lines. Here it is, from the fourth paragraph:
"If we do [what Hezbollah accomplished], this Israeli army full of gay soldiers and full of corruption and with old-fashioned war methods can be defeated also in Palestine."
You would think Im angry, but I'm not...I'm nonplussed. Something is wrong here. I first became suspicious when the title of the article makes it seem like the article will be about gay issues, when they truly play a very minor role in the article. This made me wonder...was the title only there for shock value?

You have WorldNetDaily, a newssite that has ads for Ann Coulter and whose readers have repeatedly chosen the infinitely aggregious book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) as one of their favorite books.

Can you trust this news source?

Also, look up Abu Oudai on the web...the only people he's ever talked to are WorldNetDaily. So, essentially, a leader of a terrorist group in the West Bank decides to talk to the media and chooses a small, anti-Islamic news organization to pledge allegiance to? Unlikely.

Honestly, I don't think Abu Oudai exists...and I don't think that the articles in WorldNetDaily are legitimate. There's nothing in Arabic to back up Abu Oudai's existence. Abu Oudai conveniently says exactly what we think he'll say, and is often the only Palestinian source in WorldNetDaily's articles. I might understand using Abu Oudai to discuss Palestinian issues, but Hizbullah? Is WorldNetDaily unable to pick up a phone and call Lebanon? Faulty journalism.

I find it funny that the other news organizations that picked up the story, such as Ynetnews (which often takes from WorldNetDaily), PinkNews, and Gay.com didn't question the source. Were they just happy to see what they wanted to see?

Oh, trust me, WorldNetDaily (or "WorldNutDaily" as it is known in some circles) is beyond disreputable. In fact, it barely qualifies as a "news source." If anything, it is simply an echo chamber for the United States' closet racists, imperialists, theocrats, and homophobes.

Its record in cultivating homophobia is especially extraordinary; not too long ago it posted an article that entirely gave credence to far-right Orthodox Jewish leaders who were saying that God was withdrawing his protection from Israel because of World Pride.

WorldNetDaily is not credible but it is perfectly credible for some person in Hezbollah to have 'a bee in his turban' about homosexuality.

Every awake adult in Lebanon suspects the extent of homosexual behaviour in the country. It is rife from top to bottom, so to speak.

This may now be causing angst among the moral fascists who can be found in every religious group, Islam included. Hezbollah may contain leaders who actually believe a nonsense set of ideas about God. From such silliness comes the fear that bad things will happen to the group if the group doesn't watch out about wandering penises.

As if the Shia in Lebanon did not have more serious group problems than concern about who Ali is sleeping with!!

Hi, I have a friend who works for Gay.Com in the UK. I'll send him a link to your post and see if the story can be changed. All the best.

mike davis's comment is missing the point here. If gay groups (especially gay news and opinion blogs/sites) start privileging convenient "truthiness" over actual, hmm, TRUTH, then their constituency will (or should, anyway) lose faith in them. Not to mention the loss of reputation among half-hearted supporters, neutral persons, and open-minded opponents.

Sure Hizbollah may have some homophobic leaders. Why not have their statements verified before being quoted, instead of pulling them from some fabricated fauxnews from a fauxnews site?

Kudos to Al-Fil for spotting this bit of sloppy echo-machinery.

Yeah, I have to echo mike davis.

Worldnet daily is not always credible, BUT, I would actually DISbelieve a story that showed even a hint of tolerance towards gay people on the part of Hizballah (or any Islamofascist group, for that matter).

Red Tulips, yes, but refer to MingerSpice's comment above. That's beyond the point. And to start using the terminology of the the Bush-Cheney propaganda machine ("Islamofascists") in defense of gay rights... Please, do I really have to point out the gross inconsistency?

Al-Fil, great work! I wouldn't bother contact WorldNutNews, but have you tried contacing PinkNews or heard back from Gay.com?

The WorldNetDaily is a rightwinged extremistic group, aimed at denouncing islam, muslims and arab culture, and glorifying the extreme rightwinged culture of for instance the KKK.

It has nothing to do with real information, only with propaganda of and for the racist and bigotted part of america.

The WND is well-funded, well-utilised, and has a large group of followers, it is not a small group, it is a group of fanatics.

What's always deliberately missing in western "mainstream" or "alternative" media outlets is that when they deal with Islam or Muslim groups they assume that "gays" are the ultimate enemies for Islam which is not the case. Right now in the Lebanese parliament elections Hezbolla is having a problem with a Communist, which is a Hezbolla ally, to be the representative of Lebanese South, which is a Hezbolla area.
Muslims feel that God non-believes are sinners, whether we agree with them or not, they're following their religion. Hezbolla refuses to accept sinners in their societies in communities, just like other religious groups in the West, Jewish and Christians dealing with gays and abortion and feminists. So whether this sinful act is about homosecualitiy or not, it doesn't really matter to Hezbolla, what matters to them is that they only wish to deal with a God-believer and a follower of Islam. assuming that Islam has a say on homosexuals, which I don't think that's the case.
So the bottom line is, Al-Fil and mingerspice are correct by saying that the media is selectively choosing pieces that appeals to the western masses stereotypes of Islam and Hezbolla.
