News, Not News



The BBC is reporting the arrest of several Israelis:

A number of Jewish suspects have been arrested over the murder of Palestinian teenager Mohammad Abu Khdair, whose death sparked days of violent protests.


Though they haven’t bothered with the arrest of a Palestinian for murder:

Palestinian man arrested in connection with killings of three Jewish teenagers


They do however highlight the arrest of another Palestinian:

A Palestinian-American teenager, a cousin of Mohammad Abu Khdair, was one of those held after the clashes.

Mobile phone footage appears to show two Israeli policemen repeatedly punching Tariq Khdair, 15, from Florida, in the head.


Only nasty Israeli coppers beat people up don’t they?:




Similarly the BBC are keen to report this:

Lord Brittan ‘interviewed over historical rape allegation’


But somehow overlook this:

Labour Lord’s ‘sex attacks on 12 children’: ‘Horrific’ allegations include rape and serious sexual assaults MoS reveals


The case against Brittan was from a single claim whilst at least 12 separate men have complained about the Labour Lord….‘These are some of the most horrific child abuse allegations you can imagine.’

Guess the BBC have their reasons for not reporting that.

    Undoubtedly the BBC will report on the coincidence that the boy who was beaten was a cousin of the boy who was murdered.

    Undoubtedly the BBC will report on the doubts about that video leading to the possibility that the so-called police were Arabs in stolen and/or easily available uniforms.

    If it is Pallywood the cousin of the murdered boy (coincidence?) certainly took one for the team.

      If it really was Israeli policemen, what would they gain from beating up a Palestinian kid knowing full well someone almost certainly would be filming it? I’m willing to bet they’re not as stupid as that.

    A good link re this case of the three Israeli boys…and its denigration by a subsequent event, being used to trash the Jews with no evidence to back it up at this stage.

      Good article.

      On Tuesday, police said, the mother called police to say that ‘settlers’ had tried to kidnap her younger son. She said that individuals had stopped a car in front of her house where she was sitting with her son, and that they tried to grab him. She managed to hold onto him, she said, and they left, at which point she called police.
      “Officers arrived a few minutes later to take her statement, in which she said ‘settlers’ had tried to kidnap her son, but could give no details. However, a few minutes later the father arrived, and he disputed his wife, saying that it was Arabs who tried to kidnap the son.
      “Police asked the father if he was positive regarding the identity of the would-be kidnappers, and he said he was. When they asked him to file a police complaint, he said he would, but that he would come down to the police station later on to do so in order to be able to comfort his son. He never showed up, police said, who contacted him several times asking him to file the complaint – but to no avail.”

    A question that was posed this weekend during a discussion with friends regarding good and evil was how to distinguish between the good and the evil people in the world. I had to say that generally I don’t know. However, on reflection, I wonder if a quick way is to determine if and individual is antipathetic towards Christians and/or Jews, then that is a pointer? If so, then the bbc has quite a few evil people working for it, as does the guardian (so-called) newspaper.


    • Big Dick says:

      All of the bbc & Guardian are totally evil , with the exception of Andrew Neil .


    • Arthur Penney says:

      Try the masonic way.

      “To live respected and die regretted”


    • Lynette says:

      Good people who ignore incitement to racial hatred and just talk about something being evil and don’t do anything to stop that evil being perpetrated (within their capability ) are really just a lesser evil than those who broadcast it..


  4. The Christian Crusader says:

    Compared with their tone regarding the Israeli teenager killings, the BBC displaying a much more sympathetic attitude. They are so pro-Muslim it’s unbelievable.


  5. Jackde says:

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu noted the difference between Palestinian reactions to the deaths of the trio, and Israeli reactions to the murder of a Jerusalem Arab by suspected Jewish extremists last Wednesday.

    Stressing that Israel would track down the captors of the Jewish victims, Netanyahu pointed out that “The murderers came from the territory controlled by the Palestinian Authority; they returned to territory controlled by the Palestinian Authority. Therefore, the Palestinian Authority is obliged to do everything in its power to find them, just as we did, just as our security forces located the suspects in the murder of Mohammed Abu Khudair within a matter of days.”

    Netanyahu then sent his condolences to the Abu Khudair family.

    “I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific crime, which must be resolutely condemned in the most forceful language. I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific crime will face the full weight of the law,” Netanyahu emphasized.

    “I know that in our society, the society of Israel, there is no place for such murderers. And that’s the difference between us and our neighbors. They consider murderers to be heroes. They name public squares after them. We don’t. We condemn them and we put them on trial and we’ll put them in prison.”

    “And that’s not the only difference,” the PM continued. “While we put these murderers on trial, in the Palestinian Authority, there is continuous incitement for the destruction of the State of Israel. It’s a staple of the official media and the educational system.”

    “This is an asymmetrical conflict,” Netanyahu said. “We do not seek their destruction; they teach a very broad segment of their society to seek our destruction. And that must end. There is too much suffering. There is too much pain.”


    • John Anderson says:

      and the BBC has been reporting this speech round the clock ? What he says is universally true about the difference between Israeli and Palestinian society – but the BBC never reflects this difference of attitude which is a root cause of Palestinian violence.

      In the BBC view there is no central pathology in Palestinian society – everything is the fault of “illegal settlements”.


  6. nofanofpoliticians says:

    The questioning of Lord Brittan and (in particular) the loss/ destruction of 114 files on suspect paedophiles aorund Westminster is worthy of some comment.

    The newspaper reports I have seen about the missing files all talk about PIE, and to be fair the BBC have made that reference too but they haven’t connected Hattie and Patricia Hewitt to PIE and have managed to maintain complete silence on that matter since it was first reported a couple of months ago.

    It is always interesting to see how the BBC manage to compartmentalise their stories, keeping certain subjects that don’t fit the narrative completely isolated. Half the news all the time.


    • flexdream says:

      Leon Brittan is a decent, intelligent and honourable man who served his country and party loyally. He is also Jewish. He was treated unfairly over Westland and has been treated unfairly over these files. At one time I’d have thought it incredible that anyone in the BBC would be anti-semitic, but having seen so much anti-Israeli bias that last step is a small one to make for some in the BBC.


  7. GeoffM says:

    As far as the BBC is concerned the kidnap and murder of three Jewish kids is nothing but as for Palestinians and it’s belief in everything that Pallywood produces…..


    • flexdream says:

      .. and the ongoing slaughter of Muslims in Syria and Iraq is hardly worth a mention now. It’s not ‘news’ because it’s become routine.
      The ‘routine’ in Israel is that people are not killed for their faith. The BBC should be reporting that for context.


  8. Anton says:

    It may be even worse than that:

    “Always lying. Always trying to stir up problems and create conflicts and division by spreading lies across the Arab world.

    Hundreds of Arabs riot across Jerusalem after Palestinian teen was found murdered. Arab rioters believe boy killed by Israelis as revenge for 3 Israeli teens; police tried to clarify motive for crime.

    The motive was finally determined. The boy was killed by Muslims for being gay, a crime in Islam that calls for murder by all gruesome means, for being a shame and hated in the Muslim community. Police caught three Muslims fleeing in a car responsible for the murder.

    Israelis have had enough of their foreign invaders and occupiers savagery”


  9. TheHighlandRebel says:

    In the meantime hundreds of innocent women and children are butchered day in day out by Islamists yet they are completely ignored.


  10. barry says:

    The BBC drag on Keith Vaz for comment on the missing files. Read his Wiki page the man is a disgrace.

    Is Hamas justice preferable?

    Meet The Proud Mother Of Palestinian Man Accused In Death Of Israeli Teens
    Amer Abu Aisheh is one of the two Palestinians that Israel accuses of having kidnapped and murdered three Israeli teens. Amer’s mother Nadia says “I am the mother of a Palestinian martyr, perhaps two because I will probably never see Amer again.”
    Nadia says that she is “proud and strong because of what her sons have achieved,” and wishes Amer a “victorious Ramadan,” underlining that she feels they are “respected by their people and by Allah.” For Nadia, the definition of a martyr is “one who chooses to give their life to kill the Jews,” and being victorious means “achieving this.”
    As reported by La Stampa – Italy and not by the BBC…
