Patrick Cockburn exposes his hatred of Arabs yet again

Patrick Cockburn is such utter trash.  It was years ago that we stopped trusting his 'reporting.'  Arab social media posters were noting how biased it was, how anti-Sunni he was, how wrong he was.

Those who doubted what Arab voices saw need only read his latest garbage which is rah-rah Baghdad

Rah-rah about Baghdad attacking the Kurds.

Sad and pathetic enough but he also writes this:

The Sunni, a fifth of the population, have lost comprehensively because Isis became their main vehicle for opposition to the central government.  Justly or unjustly, they share in its defeat.

There are so many responses to those two sentences -- none of them kind.

First, how outrageous that he likens Sunnis to terrorists.

How is that different from some Americans branding all Muslims terrorists?

It's not.

Patrick Cockburn has just labeled Sunnis as terrorists.

It's the sort of hatred so many Arabs have sensed in his writing for years now.

It's outrageous and goes to both Cockburn's lack of ethics and lack of basic fairness.

"Justly or unuslty," the group ISIS did not become the Sunnis "main vehicle for opposition to the central government."

Sunnis were protesting.

ISIS only became bigger than the protests when Nouri al-Maliki began attacking the protesters.

ISIS was not championed by the Sunnis and for Patrick Cockburn to claim otherwise is just for him to expose the deceitful and dishonest core at the center of Patrick's very being.

It is a lie and a slander.

His hatred allows him to lie and slander Arabs.

He's been doing this for some time and it's past time the left stopped going along with him.

Reality, Patrick's covered Iraq for 14 years -- what did he ever expose?

Did he expose Abu Ghraib?


Did he expose Nouri's torture chambers?


Fourteen years of so-called independent 'reporting' and he has nothing to show for it but one Tiger Beat filing over a Shi'ite after another.

He's not a reporter.

He's an anti-Arab propagandist who should be shunned by any educated reader.
