Not one single mention that settlements are illegal as they violate international law.

Fuck you BBC and your pro-Israel bullshit and fuck you Israel for continuing to steal Palestinian land. 

I thought that the part about them being illegal was just assumed. 

The general public have no idea that these settlements are illegal. I’m sure most people who read this article don’t even know that Israel is building on stolen Palestinian land.

Heck, the general public don’t even know that Palestine isn’t a country.

Regardless, the settlements being illegal should be one of the main talking points and should always be one of the first things that are mentioned. It should be in the headline, for starters.

You’re right about the headline, it should be made clear that these (and virtually all) settlements are illegal. 

Maybe it’s just me and my friends, but when I hear about Israel doing something like this, I just assume it’s in violation of some law and/or UN Resolution. 

Ninth paragraph: "About 500,000 Jews live in more than 100 settlements built since the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The settlements are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this.

And that’s why you don’t take a screenshot of a story without linking to the story.

Entwistle spoke on the controversial Newsnight episode earlier today, and while conceding the show was “fundamentally wrong,” he claimed he had no knowledge of the program prior to broadcast. Now, just hours later, and he’s gone.

“The sky is a deep black.” 

Neil Armstrong describes his view of the heavens from the lunar surface in this rare interview with the BBC.

Could not imagine how mindblowing this interview was in 1970.

At noon London time on July 12, 2012, Britain will slip silently into a new era of radio history.
At the top of the hour, the BBC World Service - once the voice of the British empire - will transmit its last radio news bulletin from its imposing home, Bush House in central London.
For more than 70 years the art-deco building was the beating heart of the British Broadcasting Corporation’s overseas service and a bastion of press freedom around the world.
From here King George V addressed the Empire in 1932, Charles de Gaulle defied the Nazis, and legions of emigres sent news in dozens of languages to the unmistakeable introductory strains of Lilliburlero, its signature tune.

All things must end. Some great history here.

Michiyoyoshiku uploaded the great BBC documentary Tetris: From Russia With Love (58m54secs) to YouTube last week. You should watch it. 

This sounds like a great way to kill an hour, at least moreso than watching half of “Game Change.”
