Fake News: Media Equates Small Fire In Mosque Guard Room To Notre Dame Burning

Written by:

Newsweek was concerned that the fire in Notre Dame was getting too much attention leading to this embarrassing headline. (Though technically any Newsweek headline is embarrassing.)

“Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque Fire Burns at the Same Time As Flames Engulf Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris”.

This is ridiculously fake news, even by Newsweek standards (though none of the media’s fact checkers will ever challenge it, nor will Facebook intervene to stop its viral spread).

Here’s what actually happened.

The Fire broke out in the guard’s room outside the roof of the Marwani Prayer Hall,” according to the Wafa news agency. The fire was quickly put out by the Waqf with no injuries or interior damage reported.

To put it bluntly, there’s absolutely no parallel here.

But the media has an agenda.

And it is often an Islamist one.
