Since the beginning of April 2014 Ansar Bayt al Maqdis has been declared a proscribed terrorist organization by the UK government (see page 5) and designated as a foreign terrorist organization and a specially designated global terrorist entity by the US State Department. In addition, an Egyptian court ruled on April 14th that the group is a terrorist organization.

Clearly it is time for an update to the BBC’s Ansar Bayt al Maqdis profile.

  1. The prophet Duvidl speaks for the eighth time:

    The BBC will eventually bring itself around to a weasel-worded update without, of course, any attribution to BBC Watch for drawing licence fee TV taxpayers’ attention to BBC incompetence, misinformation and misuse of funds.

  2. Look, are they keen to murder Jooos? Then they are not ‘terrorists’, not in a million years. At most, they are ‘militants’.
