Imagine if Osama bin Laden had the red carpet rolled out for him just days after the 9/11 attacks.
Specifically, imagine if bin Laden had been invited to share “his side” of the story on the likes of “Face the Nation” or some other media show that bills itself as actually serious.
Well, it appears that the unbelievable has just occurred with none other than the ultra-woke BBC, which claims that its “main responsibility is to provide impartial public service broadcasting.”
Apparently the globalist-controlled BBC has now behooved itself to literally give terrorists the time of day.
Primetime time of day, no less.
Shockingly, Ghazi Hamad, a Hamas mastermind, was actually granted a BBC interview, despite the atrocities his murderous, anti-American group just committed.
Imagine Osama bin Laden being granted such a storied interview a few weeks after the 9/11/01 attacks … and now realize just how far the woke West has fallen in a couple of decades’ time.
Thanks for that “change,” Emperor Obama.
BBC’s Middle East correspondent Hugo Bachega attempted to hold a real interview with the terrorist, apparently not realizing that terrorists entertain neither Western norms nor Western niceties.
Admittedly fewer niceties these days under Biden and his comrades.
When Bachega pressed Hamad about why Hamas opened fire at a preschool, it’s safe to say that the terrorist had an utterly absurd excuse.
“Because the area was very wide … [there] were clashes and confrontations,” Hamad drawled.
Clashes and confrontations with 4-year-olds? Really? That’s new. And horrifying.
Amazingly, for a network that claims to be so concerned about disinformation, the BBC sure did let Hamad spill all kinds of disinformation on air.
“I can tell you we didn’t have any intention or decision to kill the civilians,” Hamad openly lied.
Oh, please, spare us all!
Exactly what else would Hamad call murdering innocent civilians, including infants, in their sleep?
Bachega actually dared to go there, asking Hamad specifically about murdering civilians in their sleep.
It’s safe to say that Hamad’s response was hardly inspirational … Though it did put the BBC in its place.
“I want to stop this interview,” Hamad snarled, and he subsequently refused to discuss Hamas’s despicable antics any further.
Well done, BBC. Way to empower a total terrorist, and then have that terrorist show obvious disgust against the network.
Since when does Western media serve as the lapdog for terrorist interests?
Needless to say, survivors of the attack have a different take on Ghazi’s absurd claim that Hamas didn’t try to harm civilians.
For instance, one survivor, Haim Jelin, detailed precisely how the Hamas terrorists reigned havoc across multiple individuals in Israel.
“They shot indiscriminately, abducted whoever they could, burned down people’s homes so they’d have to escape through the window, where the terrorists would wait,” Jelin recalled bleakly.
Absolutely horrible. And even more horrible that Western media is apparently kowtowing to terrorists these days.
Just consider the BBC’s pathetic excuse for calling Hamas “freedom fighters,” rather than terrorists, for weeks.
“Terrorism is a loaded word, which people use about an outfit they disapprove of morally. It’s simply not the BBC’s job to tell people who to support and who to condemn – who are the good guys and who are the bad guys,” the BBC sniffed.
Oh, really? Then why did the media have zero issue referring to Al Qaeda as terrorists about two decades ago? Or is the woke movement now so “inclusive” that it accepts mass violence against innocent civilians?
Moreover, does one really need to think too hard about who the “bad guys” are when it comes to innocent children being murdered in their sleep?
Apparently, someone influential put the BBC in its place, as the network now grudgingly refers to Hamas as a “proscribed terrorist organization.”
It’s pathetic the network can’t call a terrorist group for what it really is out of fear of being “offensive” … especially when that same network probably has zero qualms about calling Trump supporters terrorists.
Seems the BBC is determined to be the wokest of them all, to the extent the network won’t even use the word “terrorist” anymore … unless the word is being lobbed against conservative parents routinely targeted by the Biden administration.
