Honest Reporting reports another 'BBC shocker' today.
Danny Danon, Israel’s Minister of Science, appeared on the BBC World Service's Newshour earlier. In a remarkably loud voice, the BBC presenter challenged him in the following fashion:
But you’re not under threat by Iran. Nobody in Iran has threatened you for a very long time. You’re harking back to a time when President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatened Israel directly.
As Honest Reporting points out - with some graphic examples - this statement is simply untrue.
Within the past year, Ayatollah Khamenei has unambiguously repeated his calls for the destruction of Israel, and with the past few days, former president Hashemi Rafsanjani has also expressed his hope that Israel will be wiped off the map.
Was this extreme ignorance or bias from the BBC presenter?
P.S. The loud-voiced BBC presenter, if you were wondering, was Razia Iqbal. No BBC novice she.
