- 800,000 demonstrate. Guess which three we found.Pounce comments:
Three Lebanese people give their views on the significance of the past few days in their country: the assassination of anti-Syrian politician Pierre Gemayel, and the huge crowds attending his funeral rally. (Link to BBC story)
1st viewpoint ; The Jews and America did it.
2nd viewpoint; Not sure who did it but I don’t think Syria did it. Oh by the way Hezbollah have a valid point about wanting more of a say in government.
3rd viewpoint; Hezbollah are great and America isn’t..
Hang on. 800,000 people protested against Syria in Beirut yesterday and its shared familiar ‘Hezbollah’ […]
Yet strangely in Beirut today out of a total population of approx 1.5 million the BBC manages to find 3 people who not only support Syria and Hezbollah but hate the Jews and America in which to express the view in Lebanon.
Why am I not surprised
The BBC has excised all references
