El Baradei Snubs BBC Over Gaza

You know it is getting bad when the head of the Iranian Nuclear Proliferation Committee, I mean the UN International Atomic Energy Agency Mohamed ElBaradei has canceled a scheduled interview with the BBC, also known as the Al Jazeera of Britain.

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency has cancelled interviews with the BBC over its decision not to broadcast a charity appeal for Gaza.

Guess we don't have to guess which side he is on in the ongoing problems the Israelis are having with Hamas and the Palestinians.

This is the guy who was supposed to keep an eye on Iran, and who kept issuing assurance after assurance that the Iranians were not up to any bad in the pursuit of their nuclear weapons, only to have to admit last year finally that he had not a clue.

We now have a report that Iran may have a nuclear weapon within a year.

I wonder what the "jizya" is that the BBC will have to pay to get back in ElBaradei's good graces?
