Mardell strikes again raining on Romney’s parade in Israel…far from just reporting he adds into the mix a few of his own moralising comments which seem based more on a partiality towards Palestinians than a desire to reveal any truths.
‘Mr Romney was talking about what he called “the dramatically stark difference in economic vitality” between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. He said that in Israel, the gross domestic product was $21,000 per capita compared to $10,000 in the Palestinian territories.
He said, says if you can learn anything it is that “culture makes all the difference”.
And when he looked at the accomplishments of the people of Israel he recognised the power of culture and a few other things.
It does seem at least odd that Mr Romney did not also reflect on the “few other things” that might have an impact on economic dynamism.
This is not to suggest that he should shy away from the argument in general, which is an interesting one.
But many would argue the recent history of the Palestinians has had a bigger impact on their economic prospects than anything else.’
Indeed….but whose fault is that? Who has attacked the Israelis day in day out for over 60 years?…the Palestinians and other Muslims.
Had the Palestinians not gone on the warpath they would have undoubtedly had a far more successful economy, a thriving society and a good future. Instead they chose to fight a war.
It’s about time the BBC recognised a few truths and admitted Israel is under constant attack from Muslims who wish to destroy Israel and the Jews….they are not interested in a two state solution…they want it all.
When the BBC start broadcasting such truths perhaps we will have fewer people mindlessly supporting the ‘Palestinian cause’….which is one of ethnic cleansing and annihilation of the Jews.
A cause the BBC seems to support with every report that rushes to condemn Israel at every move.
One of ‘those other things’ perhaps? ……BBC News kills Jews.
And it’s interesting o see their moderation policy in work…just what offends their policy?
