Former British Prime Minister David Cameron gave the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) an earful during a recent appearance, excoriating the network for its steadfast refusal to refer to Hamas as a terrorist organization.

Cameron, currently serving as the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary, spoke with broadcaster Laura Kuenssberg on Sunday. Their discussion came on the heels of a video Hamas released of British-Israeli hostage Nadav Popplewell — along with the terrorist group’s subsequent claim that Popplewell had since been killed by “an Israeli strike.”


“When you see what Hamas are prepared to do, you just realize, the terrible, dreadful, inhuman people, frankly, that we are dealing with,” Cameron began, and then immediately turned to issue a challenge to the BBC. “And maybe it’s a moment, actually, for the BBC to ask itself again, should we describe these people as terrorists? They are terrorists.”

“If you kidnap grandmothers, you kidnap babies, you rape people, you shoot children in front of their parents. What more do they need to do for the BBC to say, look, these are terrorists?” Cameron pressed, listing just a few of the horrific atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists during the October 7 attacks on Israel. “They really are.”


The BBC released a statement to Fox News Digital following Cameron’s appearance, claiming that their coverage of Hamas — regardless of what they called the terror group — should speak for itself. In recent coverage of the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, the BBC has referred to the terrorist organization as simply a “Palestinian group.”

“No one consuming BBC News can be left unaware of the horrific nature of Hamas’ acts. We’ve made our long-standing position on this matter very clear — we use the word terrorist when it is attributed to others, such as the UK Government,” the statement read.
