BBC report on murder of Tomer Hazan revised

On September 21st we noted that the BBC’s report on the murder of Sergeant Tomer Hazan had failed to mention the victim’s name and age – despite those details having been publicly available at the time of publication – and that it wrongly stated that he had been abducted. 

Here is a screenshot of the report as it stood then.

Murder Tomer Hazan

On September 22nd the article was revised and its title changed, although the time stamp does not reflect the amendment. Here is a screenshot of the report’s new wording.

  1. Israel has given Arabs a motivation to engage in further mayhem and kidnappings because of its prisoner release policy and its readiness to exchange great numbers of live offenders often for one dead Israeli. It has proved misguided.

    • ‘Israel has given Arabs a motivation to engage in further mayhem and kidnappings’ because it is a Jewish sovereign state and not a Muslim state.

  2. The prophet Duvidl has spoken and, after Hadar’s BBC-fisking brilliance on September 21, his prophecy has come to pass:

    Duvid Crockett, King of Delancey Street, /Home of gefilte fish and kosher meat
    SEPTEMBER 21, 2013 @ 9:30 PM
    The prophet Duvidl speaks:

    There will probably be a further version of the story, this time mentioning the name of murdered Sergeant Tomer Hazan, plus a couple of other tweaks. But there will definitely be no acknowledgement of either BBC Watch or you, Hadar, for pointing out to the BBC the error of its ways.

    • The prophet Duvidl speaks again:

      Let the people hear. The leftist BBC is and has been for fifty years a corrupt Arab terrorist apologist propaganda organisation, full of child rapists and child rapist-enablers. Clean these Augean stables, my children, improve your TV-tax-paying lives and achieve happiness by breaking it up without delay.

      • Prophecy revised version 1:

        The prophet Duvidl should more appropriately have referred not to cleaning the mythical Augean stables, but the Biblical consumption in fire and brimstone of Sodom and Gomorrah. And also it might be a good idea to turn Lord Chris Patten into a pillar of salt, like Lot’s wife.
