I listened to Jeremy Bowen being interviewed from his perch on Tripoli this morning on Today (8.10am). One of the issues being covered was what united the “rebels”. Jeremy came back with the official BBC meme that it is a shared hatred of Gadaffi that united them. But hang on a moment, there is something else that unites them – as evidenced here – but left curiously unreported by the BBC. I wonder why? When even Reuters can tackle a topic the BBC runs away from you know that you are in real danger of getting a very contrived and controlled narrative. The emerging Libya’s hatred of Israel may be much greater than that of Gaddaffi but the State Broadcaster may not deign that as a problem.
