JOURNALISM NO INFORMATIVE IN BRAZIL

by Fábio de Oliveira Ribeiro Thursday, Oct. 01, 2009 at 1:03 PM
sithan@ig.com.br

Visit of the President of Iran to Brazil is harassed by the press.

Yesterday and today (28 and 29/09) the National Newspaper (Globe, Brazilian TV company that has American capital) it made an effort enough to blemish the President of Iran. I don't know exactly because so much journalistic intolerance, but I think that this is already committing the pupils' credibility of Ali Kamel.



The military tests done by Iran and Mahmoud Amadinejah's speeches against the Holocaust were considered inadmissible. I think that the journalists of the Globe need urgently to consult a dictionary and to study some International Right.



"Inadmissible" it is that that is not able to or it should not be admitted.



Let us like or no Iran is a sovereign State. Among their prerogatives - that are admitted thoroughly by the habits and international laws - it is the one of maintaining Military Forces to defend his territory in case of foreign attack. Every State is have right of modernizing their Armed Forces and of accomplishing the maneuvers and tests that to consider necessary.



Since Governo Bush's beginning Iran has constantly been threatened by the White House. This, the USA was not enough has a long report of painful and awkward interventions in that country (the Americans helped to drop Mussadeq, they stimulated Iraq to attack Iran after the Islamic Revolution and there is very little time dropped an airplane of passengers filled of Iranian civilians).



Bush's aggressive rhetoric was maintained by Obama. Therefore, it is acceptable to conclude that Iran is rights to feel threatened. And a threatened State does what is necessary to prevent and, eventually, to defend itself. Iran have right of doing it. Therefore, unlike what they said them anchor of the Jornal Nacional the conduct of Iran is perfectly comprehensible.



Although the journalists of the Globe don't like, UN that created the State of Israel is forced to guarantee the right of freedom of conscience and of expression Mahmoud Amadinejah. The nonsenses that the President of Iran has been talking about the Holocaust are strictly acceptable. Let us like or no, Mr. Mahmoud Amadinejah cannot be forced to believe in what we believed or we would like him to believe.



And for speaking in Holocaust, they are not few the Jews that criticize the almost demoniac obsession that this episode has been acquiring. Normam G. Finkelstein wrote a book to criticize the commercial exploration of the holocaust for the American Jewish elite (http://www.revistacriacao.net/holocausto.htm). AND until the Israeli pacifists they criticize the use of the holocaust as a true shield to disguise the military character of the politics in Israel and the practice of war crimes against Palestinian inside and out of the Palestinian territories.



Even if Mahmoud Amadinejah has made threats to Israel this should not be reason for fright. All know that that is pure vanity. Amadinejah doesn't scare not even the Israelis, that they are very safe of his power of nuclear retaliation (unlike Iran, Israel has hundreds of nuclear bombs).



Everything that said here is truism. I am just an amateur and me curved the professionals' of the Globe qualification. But I don't understand the why of this persistent implication with Mahmoud Amadinejah. It is seeming that the Globe TV intends to interfere in the Brazilian foreign policy.



If it goes this the case, it is never too much to remind that Brazil has constitution and institutions. The foreign policy of Brazil is of the competence of Itamaraty. Like this, the journalists of the Globe TV should leave the Brazilian diplomats do his work. This they have been doing better than the Globe Department of Journalism has been making journalism.
