The Hamas Broadcasting Corporation

An interesting view of the BBC’s coverage of the Gaza situation from The Spectator.

“Last night’s BBC TV News at Ten featured a highly partisan report about Gaza by Jeremy Bowen. Making no mention of the direct hit yesterday by a Hamas rocket on a kindergarten in Ashdod (which was empty for fear of precisely such an occurrence) Bowen concentrated heavily on the growing civilian casualty toll among Palestinians, making no acknowledgement of any Hamas operatives among these figures. The piece de resistance of this item was a report from Gaza’s Shifa hospital by a Gazan BBC producer, Rushdi abu Alouf. He claimed that ‘hundreds of kids, women and children’ had been brought to the hospital for medical treatment. Undoubtedly there are many casualties — tragically, including children — and the hospital is obviously under pressure. This though may help explain some of that pressure:

Hamas has set up an independent hospital in the Gaza Strip to treat its operatives wounded in fighting with the IDF – and, according to Israeli estimates, it is pilfering a significant portion of the medicine allowed into the Strip …”

For another view on the part of moderate Muslims, try looking at the Muslims Against Sharia blog. Be prepared to be surprised at the venom being directed towards Hamas by other Muslims. The Muslims Against Sharia blog may also open your eyes to the extent to which parts of the Koran are used to project hatred towards Christians and moderate Muslims.
