Different perspectives

Where is Tim Willcox these days? You know, the Tim Willcox of the Paris attacks:
“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.


  1. A perspective I'm not hearing on the BBC, but I'm reading elsewhere, is that the methods used by the killers in this London attack, as in the previous one, are those that were pioneered by Palestinian terrorists.

    And, again, Western women enjoying themselves seem to have been a particular target for extreme violence for these Allah-idolising killers.

  2. Other things not being mentioned in the media:

    1. It's the holy month of Ramadan. Often a busy time for Jihadis.

    2. The murdering Jihadis appeared to be aiming at people's necks...very much in keeping with the Koranic injunction.

    3. The MCB has a special form on its website for reporting nothing to do with terrorism of course,only "hate crime" incidents. Why is the MCB not taken to task about this?
