The population of Gaza is a highly political issue:
The BBC’s Jon Donnison knows this well…which is no doubt why he emphasises Gaza’s population density in a parting shot at Israel as he disappears off to Australia:
With its wall, watchtowers and fences, Gaza is not a place for the claustrophobic
Watchtowers and fences? No mention of Gaza’s rocket launching terrorists, the murderous government that keeps its population in fear and poverty. No mention that those watchtowers and fences are actually on the Israeli border…to keep out those Palestinian murderers and terrorists intent on slaughtering as many Israelis, men, women and children, as possible.
This is the BBC’s graphic:
Chosen no doubt to emphasise Gaza’s population ‘crush’.
Why didn’t the BBC choose the one at the head of this post which would show a completely different perspective on things. Not quite so effective politically for someone pushing the Palestinian narrative.
What of the fact that Islington in London has a density of nearly 14,000 / sq. km
…and London itself a density of 4,761/sq. km
In other words little London has a greater density than Gaza.
Incredible how all those BBC employees manage to survive in London…presumably they couldn’t leave London to work in Salford because it is such a ‘open prison’ just like Gaza.
H/T to Pounce who beat me to the draw on this! ‘Open Wound’…good one!…and comments all removed from Donnison’s piece? Possibly all those messages of fond farewell were too emotionally overwhelming for Donnison. Yes, sad to see him go….still, there are many stories of Australian racism towards Muslims and immigrants to explore and bring to the world’s notice….blimey cobber…the pommie bastard’s straight in there already:
Stephanie Banister: Australian Islam gaffe goes viral
By Jon Donnison
As with Gaza the BBC can be a bridge to the world for the victims of White Australian prejudice as Mark Thompson once relayed to us:
‘We provide a bridge to the world, a bridge to freedom, it is very important that the story of Gaza is told around the world.’
I imagine this is one legal immigrant that the Aussies will wish to put back on the boat asap.
