A day is not a proper day in BBC land unless the reputation of Israel has been further besmirched. And so it is with this excuse of a report which alleges that must end “unfair” detentions.
On the matter of fact, the detainees concerned are terrorist suspects, hence the anguish in BBC circles. Once again, the far-left B’Tselem group (and Hamoked) is behind this agitation. The BBC is careful to designate them simply as a “campaign group” when in fact they are an activist hard left and pro Palestinian. Whilst one can accept that B’Tselem will use loaded language, it’s interesting to note how the BBC itself uses the term “incarceration” to describe how Israel deals with suspected terrorists. No bias? Sorry, when it’s little Israel, the BBC is very careful to use the right language to ensure Israel always looks in the wrong.
