Syria-based Egyptian Jihadist Abu Al-Yaqthan Al-Masri said that "every tyrannical rule in the history of Mankind has had the sorcerers of media as one of its cornerstones," mentioning Joseph Goebbels and Winston Churchill as examples. He complained that the image of Jihadi groups was being distorted in the Western media and that since they are banned from outlets such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, "only the black propaganda about the Jihadists remains." His address was posted on the Internet on September 14, 2018.
Following are excerpts:
Abu Al-Yaqthan Al-Masri: "Every tyrannical rule in the history of Mankind has had the sorcerers of media as one of its cornerstones.[...]
"Paul Joseph Goebbels, the vile man who led German media, the fountainhead of hypocrisy directed by the leader of Nazism, Adolf Hitler... The students of Goebbels, the founder of the vile school of modern media, who said - and I quote: 'Give me lying media, and I shall give you uninformed people'... He said it loud and clear and even reiterated it in his memoirs. He said: 'Lie and lie again, until people believe you.' These are the students of Winston Churchill, the British PM during WWII, who said: 'Truth is precious and must be surrounded by armies of lies.'[...]
"Our Arab kinsmen were bought by the dollar. They have began to distort the image of the Jihadi groups, and to quote lies and falsehoods about the Jihadi leaders, as well as the leading preachers, media figures, and Jihadi groups. They have distorted the entire image.[...]
"[The infidels] have prevented the Islamists, and especially the Jihadists, from appearing on their media outlets. We are completely banned from these outlets. If you post a video on YouTube, it is immediately removed. Jihadists are banned from appearing on TV.
"You are not allowed to defend yourself in a popular magazine, or to have a page on Facebook or an account on Twitter. Everything is banned, so that only the black propaganda about the Jihadists remains. People hear about the Jihadists, but they don't hear from them."
