Lebanon to elect its first new parliament since 2009 per BBC News
This BBC report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-44020061 on Lebanon includes this line:
'Hezbollah, the armed group considered a terrorist organisation by the United States and others, is seeking to increase its parliamentary representation.'
Oddly the BBC don't also inform their readers of these words by the Hezbollah leader:
'Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah: "If Jews all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide." (NY Times, May 23, 2004, p. 15, section 2, column 1.)'
Relevant surely, but not the sort of information that the BBC want the British people to have about an organisation that Jeremy Corbyn described as 'friends'.
