BBC reporter credits Hamas for 'law and order agenda'

BBC reporter and terror-sympathizer Alan Johnson, kidnapped and held for four months in Gaza, now credits his release to law and order approach of Hamas:
"I'm pretty sure that if Hamas hadn't come in and turned the heat on, I'd still be in that room," Johnston said.

"Hamas has a huge law and order agenda," he said. Although the Islamic militant movement was controversial internationally, he said, it "is better at keeping law and order than many would agree. And God knows Gaza needs law and order."

I guess he didn't get the memo about Hamas atrocities (via NRO's Media Blog):


* This is the same Hamas who only two weeks ago were throwing fellow Palestinians from Gaza rooftops and dismembering the bodies of others they had murdered.

* This is the same Hamas which are world leaders in the art of the Islamist suicide bomb, an "art" which almost killed unknown numbers in Britain this past weekend.  [....]

Yet it is Hamas who have been holding 20-year-old kidnapped Israeli Gilad Shalit in a hole in the ground ringed by explosives in a densely populated area of Gaza City for over a year now.

When interviewing Hamas spokesmen this morning about Johnston's release, the anchors for CNN International and for the British network Sky News at least had the professionalism to ask them if they would now release the young Shalit. The BBC interviewers didn't even mention Shalit but instead kept on repeating (wrongly) that Johnston was the longest held captive in Gaza. But then anyone who actually wants objective and accurate information about the Middle East long ago stopped relying on the BBC.
