BBC Gaza Day
To give you an example of the kind of stuff they’ve been broadcasting, here’s a snippet (mp3, 180k, 26 secs) from a James Reynolds report I heard on the Victoria Derbyshire show this morning. Two rockets are launched into Israel to the sound of cheering crowds, and children can clearly be heard joining in the celebration. My first thought was what kind of monsters let their kids hang around such activities when the chances are that Israel will retaliate, but that doesn't seem to occur to Reynolds. Instead, he says this:
In the last month or so it’s important to say that about two hundred of these rockets have been fired and they have very rarely injured Israelis but the intent is to injure.“they have very rarely injured Israelis” Nothing to worry about then?
“the intent is to injure” No, the intent is to kill, you moron. Unbelievable.
And where did Reynolds get the recording of the terrorists launching the rockets? Was it staged specially for the BBC?
