Israel Exercising Democracy Is The Perfect Time For BBC Hounds To Bash It


The BBC has set up a twitter list with all it’s correspondents in Israel tweeting about the Israeli elections. You can see where this is going, when Jon Donnison, Paul Danahar and Wyre Davies are on it.

Here are some of their impartial, balanced and fair reporting:

Obviously, not one word on Israel’s peace partner Mahmoud Abbas’ latest interview, where he lies about Israel agreeing to let the PA take 150,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria. Also in that interview, his paranoia about Israel wanting to assassinate him, and him urging people to prove his dissertation – of the ties between the Zionist movement and the Nazi party – wrong.

Also on their agenda today is some geography, insisting on the term “West” Jerusalem, when even “East” Jerusalem residents who have an Israeli ID can vote. Did someone say delegitimization?

I’m sure there will be more shenanigans later on today, stay tuned.
