BBC Interview Treats Hamas Leader With Kid Gloves
Is this the BBC’s idea of an April Fool’s Day joke? Middle East Editor Jeremy Boweninterviews Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal and gives the terror chief a free platform to make some laughable statements that go virtually unchallenged.
A couple of nuggets:
Meshaal even has the gall to compare his “resistance” to that of Nelson Mandela, George Washington and Charles de Gaulle fighting Nazi occupation in World War Two.
If Bowen really wants to get to the heart of what Hamas, a genocidal and anti-Semitic terrorist organization, stands for, perhaps he might consider asking Meshaal about theHamas Charter, which indicates that Hamas has anything but a “moderate ideology.”
Instead, Jeremy Bowen and the BBC have allowed themselves to become nothing more than a mouthpiece for Hamas propaganda, which Bowen’s so-called accompanyinganalysis does little to dispel.
