BBC: A 'Big But' On Islamic Republic's Threat to Wipe Out Israel

Topics: Follies of the Mainstream Media

There goes the BBC again, seeking to explain Iranian President Ahmadinejad's incitement to genocide, and implying that UK Prime Minister Blair is the one doing the saber-rattling:

Tony Blair has expressed "revulsion" at the Iranian president's assertion that he wanted Israel "wiped off the map".

Mr Blair told an EU summit at Hampton Court, near London, that he had "never come across" comments like those made by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday.

He added that Iran, suspected of having a nuclear weapons programme, could soon be considered a "real threat".

But Iran later accused the West of turning a blind eye to what it called Israel's "crimes".

EU leaders earlier issued a joint statement saying they condemned Mr Ahmadinejad's remarks.

BBC political editor Nick Robinson said Mr Blair's comments carried the "implicit threat of military action".

BBC's anti-Israel (and anti-U.S.) bias is long-standing - having been well documented here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
