Following Adam Wishart’s misrepresentation of the volatile Al-Aqsa Mosque situation, the BBC has done it again.
As BBC Watch points out, they’ve reported the recent violence by muddling up ‘cause and effect’.
You can read what actually happened on the Times of Israel online.
Palestinian rioters attack police on Temple Mount “Dozens of masked Palestinian protesters hurled rocks, Molotov cocktails and firecrackers at police officers on the Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem’s Old City Sunday morning, before being pushed back into the Al-Aqsa Mosque by security forces who were rushed to the area.”
The BBC in its wisdom puts it like this:
Al-Aqsa mosque: Israeli police enter Jerusalem holy site “Palestinian youths have clashed with Israeli police who entered the al-Aqsa mosque complex in East Jerusalem.
The Palestinians are said to have barricaded themselves inside the mosque and thrown stones at police, who moved in to stop them.”
