Why is the BBC continuing to give a platform to a journalist that glorifies terrorism and spews antisemitism?

While it’s not news that the BBC has promoted antisemitism and has an anti-Israel agenda, sometimes the coverage is beyond shocking.

Last week, BBC Trending presenter Rania Attar highlighted a Twitter post by Palestinian-British journalist Abdel Bari Atwan. In his tweet, Atwan praised the terror attack in Hadera that killed two Israelis, and referred to it as the “Hadera operation.” Additionally, Atwan tweeted a link to a video in which he expressed joy over the March 27 killing of Israelis.

Atwan is a regular contributor to BBC Arabic.

The BBC gives a platform to an antisemitic glorifier of terror and has some explaining to do.
