The news conference in Tel Aviv with Ban Ki Moon and Benjamin Netanyahu was beamed into our homes on BBC News 24 a few minutes ago.
PM Netanyahu was explaining that Hamas is an extreme Islamist organisation, just like Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Al Shabab etc. etc.
meanwhile a rolling banner was crawling across the screen below...........
“...........a government inquiry into evidence of an aggressive Islamist agenda in Birmingham schools finds clear evidence of extremist views........”
When it was over the BBC anchor summarised the content of the news conference: “Ban Ki Moon has strongly condemned the rocket attacks and Hamas’s use of hospitals, schools and other civilian facilities for military purposes etc etc” But neither Mr. Ban nor the BBC anchor mentioned Hamas’s aggressive Islamist agenda (which is just like Boko Haram, Al Qaeda , Al Shab. etc etc.)
Where’s Peter Clarke when you need him?
