BBC reports Israel story straight shocker

'The Israeli military says it hit a group of Palestinians laying explosives near Gaza's perimeter fence.

Islamic Jihad, a radical Islamist group, said the Israeli troops entered the Gaza Strip and fired from a helicopter and tanks.

The body of a 23-year-old Islamic Jihad fighter was taken to a Gaza hospital immediately after the fighting. A second body was later retrieved from the area, it was reported.'


Something has happened to the BBC website! This article does a pretty effective job of a) reporting the news and b) not slandering Israel.

What has gone on? A huge cull of leftie droids at Television Centre? The belated imposition of actual editorial control on the BBC website?

Whatever it is, it is highly welcome. And not before time.
