Enough of the child’s version.

Here’s the Wall Street Journal on the more interesting truth:

The license fee in action.

The BBC has more staff, correspondents and money than almost anyone - a the 'Rep' - but on issues that effect the Deep Political status quo they almost always do a very bad job! There is currently a big scandal over the BBC's refusal to air a humanitarian plea for victims in Gaza - BBC says they don't want to show bias...what a sad joke http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/bbc-under-pressure-over-gaza-emergency-appeal-1515149.html

Paul, on the Muslim Brotherhood mentoring of Hamas, what is your view of their nazi connections from WWII as promulgated by John Loftus?

I am so reminded of a poster(Michael Chapman) in another forum who held the view that Hamas remained a tool of the US-UK-Israel. Chappers would start a thread but rarely finish it, which was frustrating. But on occasion he nailed events cleanly. That was when he wasn't talking about Sky News "totty"...

I'm listening to the BBC World Service and they just broadcast a show on the 'Legacy Of Bush' and it was overwhelmingly PRO-Bush!...defending all the indefensible!...BBC - goodbye for all time.....:bootyshake:

Not all of the Nazis went to South America. Some stayed in the Middle East. Like Johannes von Leers.

A whole contingent of Nazis were sent BY the CIA to Egypt not long after WWII, to help them develop their missile, weapons and intelligence programs. Others went other places in the Middle East.
