Once again it’s moral equivalence day at the BBC. To celebrate, the BBC took to Twitter to let the world know that it thinks that there is no difference between terrorists and victims.
If you are unaware of what is going on in Israel lately, Hamas and the Palestinians have been launching rockets into the Jewish State killing women and children in a renewed and sustained attack. Today, the Israeli government and her Defense Force (IDF) have at last had enough. The IDF even took to Twitter to warn the Palestinians that retaliation is immanent.
Israel launched a few rockets of her own this week and has made threats that it is considering using ground forces to stop the constant barrage of rockets steaming into its territory, killing innocents.
So, how did the BBC turn this unprovoked attack on Israel by terrorists and a corresponding announcement of defensive action into an exercise in blame-the-victims?
Check out the BBC’s Tweet.
.@Twitter bans “threats of violence”, but will it stop tweets by Hamas’s @AlqassamBrigade & Israel’s @IDFSpokesperson? http://bbc.in/Sso5cD
Note that BBC wants Twitter to stop the Tweets of both Hamas and the IDF as if they both share exactly the same guilt.
This is nothing less than the BBC siding with the Palestinian terrorists and saying their victims in Israel are just as bad.
