President Morsi as the BBC won't show him

Whilst the BBC persists in portraying the new Egyptian President as a moderate voice, evidence to the contrary abounds. The latest example is reported by The Commentator:
'A new video has shown Egypt's newly elected Muslim Brotherhood President taking part in prayers this weekend as the preacher urged Allah to, "destroy the Jews".

 In footage obtained by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute), Morsi was shown praying intensely as cleric Futouh Abd Al-Nabi Mansour, the local head of religious endowment, declared, “Oh Allah, absolve us of our sins, strengthen us, and grant us victory over the infidels. Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate Your might and greatness upon them. Show us Your omnipotence, oh Lord.”

The service took place in Matrouh governorate’s el-Tenaim Mosque and was screened on Egyptian state television on Friday.'
Why is there not a word  about this on the BBC news? It's almost as though they are trying to protect the Muslim Brotherhood from criticism and to hide the rampant anti-Semitism that exists across much of the Muslim world.
