BBC gives kids al Qaeda propaganda
The BBC refuses to recognize the driving force behind al Qaeda's attacks is religious bigotry. It was the root cause of its attacks on the US and its attacks on the UK. It is our resistance to al Qaeda's weird religious beliefs that causes the group to lash out. They also lash out against Muslims who reject their weird religious beliefs. Dymphna at Gates of Vienna has more on the BBC propaganda pitch to the kids.
Britain's former spy chief accused the BBC of "parroting" Al Qaeda propaganda to children as young as six.
Dame Pauline Neville Jones, who is also a former BBC governor, is infuriated at the stance the corporation's Newsround programme took on the September 11 attacks.
She accused the flagship children's news bulletin of feeding an "ugly undercurrent" which suggests the terrorist outrage was somehow justifiable.
Newsround is aimed at viewers aged between six and 12.
On its website it answered the question concerning 9/11, "Why did they do it" by saying: "The way America has got involved in conflicts in regions like the Middle East has made some people very angry, including a group called al Qaeda - who are widely thought to have been behind the attacks."
After the public complained, the text was amended.
It now reads: "Al Qaeda is unhappy with America and other countries getting involved in places like the Middle East.
