Will the BBC’s Bill Law be telling his colleagues about this meeting in Istanbul? Only it might give them a clue as to the nature of Israel’s enemy.
So much for the Muslim Council of Britain
So much for opening the borders, so much for ‘Talk to Hamas’, so much for the Peace Process. Someone tell the Today programme.
Tell them about the attitude Hamas really has towards the civilians they sacrificed in Gaza:
“Mr. Nazzal told his audience: “Don’t worry about casualties.”
The 23 days of bombardment of Gaza, in which some 1,300 people, many of them civilians and nearly 300 of them children, are believed to have died, was “just the beginning” of the struggle, Mr. Nazzal said.
To laughter in the audience, another speaker noted that twice as many babies were born as children were killed during the war.
Every death, I was told, was a martyrdom on the road to liberation.”
And if any of them saw the Dispatches programme last night a few more alarm bells should have gone off. But no doubt it will be filed away with all the rest under the heading ’tiny minorities’.
