Why I Detest the BBC

This is why Britain is done for, and yet another reason why we should all be grateful for Mike Jericho's return to the blogosphere.
It is inconceivable that religion has become the new race, and that in some places certain religions are now beyond reporoach by law. Why is it possible to criticise, ridicule and fear Nazism and its followers, but not Islam ? Why is the addition of supernatural irrationality to a murderous, oppressive and intolerant ideology just grounds for its continuing impunity ? Why must intolerance be tolerated ? Why is this applied unequally, with Christianity continuing to draw the media's contempt?
Obviously, the powers that be in the UK think that even asking such questions is verboten.
The Beeb is surprised that Iraqis and Afghans are among the most optimistic people in the world. I am not surprised they are surpised, particularly in light of the above article from Mike.
I do wonder how surprised they really are though. I in turn would be surprised if the Beeb were not a actually a little ticked off, and feeling a little betrayed by these good people who it was hoped would stand against the evil British Government oppressors paying the BBC's bills.
Countering the Beeb, Jazeera, Al Manar and Hezbollah TV, as well as Their ABC here in Oz, here are reasons to be cautiously optimistic about Iraq. Incidentally, the 10 day gap in IED deaths is a real mystery to me. Does anyone know the reason ? Or is this an accounting error ?
Finally, here is a Beeb interview with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. [Hat Tip: Dhimmiwatch] Listen carefully to the interviewer's tone, especially at the beginning of the interview.
