Britain’s former spy chief accused the BBC of “parroting” Al Qaeda propaganda to children as young as six.
Dame Pauline Neville Jones, who is also a former BBC governor, is infuriated at the stance the corporation’s Newsround programme took on the September 11 attacks.
She accused the flagship children’s news bulletin of feeding an “ugly undercurrent” which suggests the terrorist outrage was somehow justifiable.
Newsround is aimed at viewers aged between six and 12.
Here is their take on 9/11:
On its website it answered the question concerning 9/11, “Why did they do it” by saying: “The way America has got involved in conflicts in regions like the Middle East has made some people very angry, including a group called al Qaeda — who are widely thought to have been behind the attacks.”
Needless to say, this bit of agit-prop aimed at children annoyed some of the Brits and they were vocal enough in their complaints that Newsround amended their answer to this lame lie:
- - - - - - - - -
Al Qaeda is unhappy with America and other countries getting involved in places like the Middle East.
“People linked to al Qaeda have used violence to make this point in the U.S.A, and in other countries.”
“Other countries” include Spain, Algeria, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, Argentina, France, Kenya, Yemen, Tunisia, Pakistan, Afghanistan (long before we ever got there), Egypt, Bali, Turkey, Qatar, and, last but not least, the UK.
Of course, the television “journalists” feeding this poison to young children would no doubt blame that on the former Prime Minister.
But Dame Pauline is having none of this tripe. She points out the fallacy in their of thinking:
Dame Pauline, who headed the Government’s Joint Intelligence Committee and is described as the most formidable female diplomat Britain has produced, said the new version was even worse.
“It still says it’s all America’s fault, and now for daring to be involved in the Middle East at all,” she said.
“It wasn’t ‘people linked to’ al Qaeda who killed 3,000 people that day, it was al Qaeda itself.
“Osama bin Laden even boasted of the attacks. Is the BBC really saying that if you’re ‘unhappy’ it’s quite normal behaviour to murder people?
“Is the BBC so naive as to take al Qaeda’s propaganda at face value? Or is there something more sinister at work here?”
Good questions. I think the BBC is so infested with fellow travelers that they pose an active danger to the continued existed of the UK — at least as we know it. She says:
“Al Qaeda make the manifestly false claim that America is part of an enormous Jewish-Christian conspiracy to dominate the world and kill Muslims.
“This is no secret — Osama bin Laden has said as much himself.
“We know that in the long run the struggle against terrorists is a battle for hearts and minds.
“How can we expect to win when our national broadcaster is parroting their line to our own children?
“There is only one set of people who are ever to blame for terrorist attacks and that’s the perpetrators themselves.”
In the old Cold War days, these traitors would eventually have made one way trips to the great Soviet Union. Now, as part of the elite MSM, they are content to watch Western civilization die the death of a thousand cuts.
