Twisting facts: classically-childish arab journalsim

After the publication in aljazeera.net of my article and the very "so and so" (to say the least) comments I got (including a da3wa to be thrown in hell?!!!- see a comment by a certain "Salah"), here is a report by a Saudi newspaper (al-Madina) that simply made a factually-twisted report about my article: instead of saying that I simply mentioned reports that are already out there in the arab media (an not only in the western media) like a report by the very Saudi newspaper al-Watan talking about "conflicts between two lines in the Vatican", and that I am doubting such an approach they simply attributed to me this very view as if I'm one of its sources... Just another example of how classically-childish arab journalism could be: copy and paste and don't bother to seriously read and investigate... Hopefully the more recent and serious trend (alquds, alhayat, aljazeera... etc) will overcome...

الى اخي طارق؛
لا عليك كل هذه الامور عادية و يمكن ان تلقى ما هو اسوأ؛ لكن تذكر انه عندما يريد انسان ما ان يقوم بتغيير ما فانه دائما يلقى معارضة و ردود فعل عنيفة؛ العرب لم يتعودوا على سماع و قبول وجهات نظر مختلفة؛ و هذا سبب و مظهر من مظاهر التخلف؛ اذا كنت مقتنعا بافكارك ومؤمنا بدورك في الرقي بامتك فانه يجب عليك ان تواصل الكتابة لانه هناك دائما من يقرأ و يستفيد؛ حتى هؤلاء الذين لا يحسنون الا الشتم يتأثرون بدورهم حتى بدون ان يشعروا؛ انا انتظر كتاباتك القادمة؛ تذكر دائما ان كتابتك يمكن ان تغير شيئا ما هناك؛ بين المحيط و الخليج
