'Massively amplifying even Hamas's own figures, Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders suggested Israel had killed "over 10,000 innocent" Palestinian civilians in Gaza during the war there in the summer of 2014, and said the high casualties were the result of an "indiscriminate" Israeli military offensive. Hamas health authorities in Gaza put the civilian death toll at about a seventh of the figure cited by Sanders; Israel puts it lower still.'

By massively inflating death toll, as Sanders suggests Israel killed 'over 10,000 innocents' in Gaza, he may get the BBC's approval
The BBC have been cheerleaders for Hillary Clinton from before this Presidential campaign began. Thus they have had to be negative about Bernie Sanders although his socialist views chime more with the BBC.
With these recent comments about Israel fitting right into the BBC's views maybe he'll get a better press from the institutionally anti Israel BBC.
