The parable of those who take [beings or forces] other than God for their protectors is that of the spider which makes for itself a house: for behold, the frailest of all houses is the spider's house. If only they understood this! (Quran 29:41)

Nowadays it's only a slight exaggeration to compare the BBC with the North Korean media. Just look at this. According to the BBC there are NO protests in Iraq. Those dozens of demonstrators who've been shot dead by the Iraqi state security forces including 23 killed on one day last Friday, that DID NOT happen. The country has been erased on their map of the demonstrations in the Arab world. Even Arab countries where there have been no protests (check the entry for Syria) are included just to let you know that there have been no protests there. But under Iraq there is nothing. Not a word. They don't even write 'Iraq' over the country. They're just so ideologically committed to the dogma that the US/UK invasion brought democracy to Iraq that they simply cannot handle anything that contradicts this.
