Several long range rockets were today fired from Gaza by Islamic State (and likely also Hamas) terrorists against Israeli civilians in Ashkelon and Sderot. Can you explain why this failed to gain a mention on any of the BBC News outlets? It is not even mentioned on the BBC Middle East News section of the website - and it's not even a heavy news day (your current lead national story this evening is "Person on track accident at Twickenham", which just about beats "train arrives late into Waterloo I guess"), Are you simply waiting for Israel to respond before you report anything so that you can write your usual "Israel attacks Gaza" headline? Or are you simply following these Reporting Guidelines?
- Martians attacking Jews again
- Arabs massacred by Americans on day of tit-for-tat violence
- New York Times tried the hide the truth about Palestinian killers
- Israeli bus catches fire
- Another dedication to the useful idiots at CNN and the BBC
- Rules and Guidelines for Western reporting on Israel
- If the response to Pearl Harbour had been the same as that of modern Islamic attacks.
