“Many critics, though, of Israel’s policy would suggest that the Palestinians suffer hugely at Jewish hands as well.”
Don’t we need Tim Willcox right now, to explain the recent terrorist attacks to us, likewise?
“Many critics, though, of Britain’s foreign policy would suggest that the Muslims suffer hugely at British hands as well.”
We haven’t heard that yet - not from the BBC at any rate. However someone should point out that it’s more or less what Jeremy Corbyn has said and that someone might as well be me.
Of course apart from Corbynists who believe that we bring terrorism upon ourselves because of our ‘foreign policy’, that particular sentiment (they had it coming) is currently reserved for Jews.
As Tim Willcox pointed out at the time, “You understand that everything is seen from different perspectives.” However the BBC hasn’t yet tried to justify the actions of ISIS, but a large part of the BBC-educated public have yet to make the connection between Hamas and your everyday purveyors of holy jihad.
Not only that, but to echo John Lennon’s renowned quip about Ringo, most of our our politicians haven’t even made the connection between Islam and the purveyors of holy jihad.
