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.
