BBC coverage of Abdel Aziz Rantissi funeral.

I wasn't going to comment on the biased BBC coverage of this event. Really no point in doing so. All you ever get is their bleeding heart reporting on terrorists without calling them terrorist; militant will do for the BBC.

However, there was a paragraph in this report that caught my eye.

Abdel Aziz Rantissi was a devout Muslim and hard-line political figure who firmly believed that Palestinians were justified in fighting to defeat the Israeli government in order achieve their political goals.

Sounds like Wyre Davies, author of the article, is praising Rantissi.

Rantissi was the leader of a terrorist organizations that murdered over 377 Israeli men, women and children and vowed to kill all Jews. Is that Davies definition of a devout Muslim? He wasn't a "hard-line political figure" he was a terrorist leader of an organization that was terrorizing not "fighting" the Israeli people not the "government".

Just about what you would expect from the BBC.
