The BBC will always do whatever it can to dampen the impact of a murderous attack. Not only does the top picture in their Israel story today bear the legend "Yasser Arafat has condemned the latest suicide attack". Their site also reports:

The BBC's Orla Guerin in Jerusalem says the Haifa bombing is one of the deadliest attacks in the past three years, and it brings the Middle East to a critical moment.

Well, it's not really that more deadly than other attacks that have taken place over the past few months, as the same webpage reports!

9 September: 15 killed in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv
19 August: 23 killed in Jerusalem
11 June: 17 killed in Jerusalem
18 May: 7 killed in Jerusalem
5 March: 17 killed in Haifa

All of these sound quite as deadly, and presumably, they all came at equally critical moments in the Middle East (particularly critical, of course, for the victims).

No, the BBC just cannot accept that it's "business as usual" for the Palestinian terrorist organisations.
