Despite a commitment to political neutrality, the overwhelmingly left-wing culture of the BBC is rarely far from the surface. Given the current delicate situation in the Middle East, one would expect the Beeb's Middle East editor to exercise some restraint, but instead he tweeted the following.
As some Twitter users quite rightly pointed out - Bowen wouldn't dare post an article entitled: Racism, hate and violence are Islamic values. But then this is from a guy who works for an organisation that on Saturday ignored thousands of anti-lockdown protesters outside its gates and instead made a beeline for the Palestinian flag-waving leftists elsewhere in London.
Typically, for a man who earns more than £200,000 of licence-payers' money, the article shared by Bowen is behind a paywall.
