Martin Bright tells us what we know to be true already….‘Supporters of Israel are losing the battle of ideas in the UK. This has probably been true for some time, if only they would admit it.’
A major part of this failure to get across the truth can be laid at the BBC’s door who continually concentrate on the negative about Israel. Israeli military operations are always violent, aggressive, out of proportion whilst palestinian attacks are ‘in response’ to Israeli aggression.
Once the BBC ventures into Israel itself and casts its eye over Israeli society again all they look to highlight are the negatives….we have had a programme on the Orthodox Jews who are pretty fundamentalist…and now we have Panorama looking at Israeli ‘Price Taggers’ (Monday night..tomorrow) settlers who refuse to give up settlement land…..
‘Their weapons are firebombs and spray cans, and they have been branded Jewish terrorists; Panorama has exclusive access to the so-called Price Taggers, the Israeli teenagers who have sworn never to give up the land God gave them. They believe every Palestinian attack and every attempt by the Israeli government to hand back land should be met with an act of revenge – a Price Tag. Israel says it is determined to tackle what has been described as this enemy within, but do the authorities have the ability or the will to stop them?’
No problem mentioning the ‘terrorist’ word here…nor ‘Jewish’ in conjunction with that.
Who needs the Elders Of Zion when you have the good folk at the BBC damning Israel’s every move? What next? Israeli dog bites Arab…was it trained to do this as part of an ethnic cleansing operation to force Palestinians out of israel?
