BBC: Reporting terrorism

BBC bias: The BBC presents Israel as its only example of state terrorism.
In a 58-minute programme on terrorism (in which there is no attempt to define or categorise it), Israel’s targeted kilings are presented, not as a response to terrorism, but as terrorism itself.
Palestinian attacks on Israel and Israeli “retaliation” are presented equally as terrorism.

Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets of Buenos Aires, demanding to know how and why he died.
