I suppose it's unintentionally become timely because of the Alan Johnston kidnap.
How odd that affair is turning out. So embarrassing for the BBC to have a reporter spelling out arguments under duress that he (and all the other self-deluded journalists like him) would put forward about Israel even if they haven't been kidnapped. Of course I wish him to be freed, but it's just dismaying that if Alan Johnston was making such arguments as a free man all he'd do is soften up the language a bit.
I suppose it would be ripe for a play but, then, apparently it's only the Americans and Israelis who ever get criticised when it comes to presenting different points of view on the Middle East on the British stage. Any arguments from the opposite spectrum are given a free pass, because they must be true. Mustn't they?
