The true colours of a BBC quoted Hamas spokesman

Salah Bardawil is a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council as well as a senior Hamas official. Frequently acting as a spokesman for the terror group, he has been extensively quoted over the years by the Western media – including the BBC (see examples here, here, here, here and here).

Bardawil recently appeared on Hamas’ Al Aqsa TV channel and sections of the interview have been translated by MEMRI.

Not only is it remarkable that the BBC consistently refrains from telling its audiences about the not infrequent appearance of antisemitic content such as this on Hamas’ TV station, but it will also be worth remembering Bardawil’s words the next time the BBC bases news brought to its audiences on quotes from that particular “Hamas leader“.
