The BBC, even-handed as always on Israel/Palestine

This made me see red:

"Hamas, shunned by Israel as a terrorist group, claims to be the legitimate government in the occupied Palestinian territories after winning parliamentary elections in 2006" (emphasis mine).

No, Hamas became the legitimate government after winning parliamentary elections. as you do.

Could the Beeb not be bothered fact-checking the Israeli government Hasbara they transcribe?
