Adding more second Intifada falsehoods to the BBC’s ‘permanently accessible archive’

BBC Watch

On January 12th we noted here that just hours after the death of Ariel Sharon, the BBC News website continued to promote the myth that his September 28th 2000 visit to Temple Mount was the cause of the second Intifada. After that article was written, three additional items appeared on the website promoting the same falsehood.

And “Bangkok Suffers Coldest Night in Three Decades—Death Roll Mounts.”
