In the comments to the previous post reader Lee Moore said this:
A beautifully balanced tale of how the Lebanese have returned to the barbarity of the death penalty:
We hear about protestors, we hear about the former Prime Minister who refused to approve executions, we hear about Amnesty’s objections, we hear about other “human rights” groups’ objections, we even hear about the EU’s objections. Nothing is omitted, except…..
surprisingly we hear nothing about the views of other Lebanese people, either the people who did approve the sentences or about public opinion. Nor do we hear that Amnesty and friends are, on this subject, a minority opinion in this country.
I wonder why. Oh, all right, I don’t really.
The Lebanese government ought to hire some terrorists, sorry “militants” to burst in and blow up the three condemned men in the name of Free Palestine. Then the Beeb would bend over backwards to understand the killers.
