If there was anything guaranteed to promote anti-semitism it's the decisions by the BBC and now Sky to decline to broadcast appeals for humanitarian relief for Gaza.
There can be no controversy that Gazans desperately need aid, now. The devastation and human-rights outrages from the IDF's New Year operations are now leaking out, despite the Israeli prevention of independent journalism from Gaza. Civilians there suffer/ed famine, drought, the bombing of civilian areas inc. schools and the use by Israeli forces of banned weapons such as WP (white phosphorus). It's a fucking mess, a tragedy and a war crime.
The BBC's decision to boycott relief appeals for Gaza on the basis of 'maintaining independence' defies belief and reason. 1.5 million Gazans- civilian men, women and children- need help now; this is not a debatable political viewpoint but a material, human fact.
The BBC's stance makes a lie of their alleged lack of bias, and is an outrageous betrayal of the principle of independence. The BBC know that most Gazans are historic refugees, robbed of freedom of movement, and sitting ducks. They weren't terrorists before, but will be now in the face of blanket collective punishment by the IDF, and now the turning of the cheek from supposedly impartial reporting agencies. If people didn't hate Jews and harbour suspicions about their abuse of power before, they will now. Jew-haters can now quote this event, with evidence, as a further example of the Zionist conspiracy, where Israeli interests outweigh all else.
God help the Palestinians and God help the Jews, when this is how 'fairness' is played out.
