No Excuses For Terror
No Excuses For Terror is the title of a 40-minute documentary by Aaronovitch, first broadcast on September 26, 2006 on the British Channel 5 network. The broadcast press summary reads:
Who is really responsible for the suicide bombers that target us? Is it the fault of George Bush or Tony Blair? Are we all somehow to blame? David Aaronovitch, journalist and commentator, has had enough of this argument. He asks how we've got to the point where British Socialists support Islamofascist Terrorism. Aaronovitch explains where the left have gone wrong on Israel, Palestine, the War in Iraq and the War on Terror.
