Subject: RE: BS: Hamas attacks Israel - part II
I don't understand your hostility. Yes we agree. The point about the Beeb is that, in effect, its hands are tied. They have sidestepped the right-wing accusation that they "won't call Hamas terrorists" by undertaking to make that statement at the start of every news bulletin. Ironically, by trying to be neutral, they are failing to be so by not calling out the IDF at the same time. Personally, I respect the Beeb by taking that stance against right-wing supporters of the Israeli regime. Instead, I think we should be calling out the Express, Mail and Telegraph for being so one-sided.
