Seinfeld: The Leaning Susan

A fulllength Seinfeld episode but with a twist. The voice impersonations are uncanny especially Jerry and Elaine.

Where's Gaza?

The BBC illustrate their report of the crashed Russian aeroplane with a map of the Sinai.

Now this map doesn't name Egypt's neighbours, and the BBC standard explanation for that is that it is their convention not to name countries that aren't pertinent to the story. Whatever you think of that explanation, the BBC are at least fairly consistent in the way that they apply it.

Now take a second look at that map, do you spot the omission? To the north east of the Sinai is Israel, however much the BBC might wish it wasn't, but also is Gaza. Odd that the BBC don't mark this territory separately. If I had the time I might create a fake identity, that of a obsessive supporter of the Palestinian people, and complain that the BBC were guilty of wiping Gaza off the map - but  don't!

Hidden camera reveals: Why was a Christian activist expelled from temple mount?

This will not be shown by BBC who prefer to spread the Palestinian narrative narrative that Jews are trying to interfere with Muslims worshipping at Al Aqsa Mosque. Instead it seems that the Muslims see the whole of the Temple Mount as their mosque and thus no Jews or Christians are allowed there.

Egyptian TV Host and historian agree: burning Jews the solution

I'm getting so angry with the main stream media's bashing of Israel and willingness to spread the lie that the Arab Muslim world has no problem with Jews, just with Israel.
Here's yet another example of Muslims hating Jews and wishing them all dead.
Presumably the BBC will claim that he's being mistranslated and means Jews but that'll be as convincing as when they tried to persuade us of that re Lyse Doucet's Gaza documentary.

Standing up to the delegitimisation of Israel

' The Asian shooting championship, which starts in Kuwait this week, has been stripped of its Olympic qualifying status after an Israeli delegate was refused an entry visa, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Thursday.
"Upon request of the International Sports Shooting Federation (ISSF), the IOC Executive Board today revoked the Olympic qualification status of the Asian Shooting Championship taking place in Kuwait City between 1 and 12 November," it said in a statement.
"The decision comes after the designated technical delegate from the ISSF, Yair Davidovich (Israel), who was due to supervise the event on behalf of the ISSF, was denied a visa by the Kuwaiti Immigration Department."'

But not at the institutionally anti Israel BBC.

Gaza University Dean of Quranic Studies Approves Killing Jewish Women and Children

Dr. Subhi Al-Yaziji, Dean of Quranic Studies at the Islamic University of Gaza, recently said: "All Jews in Palestine today are fair game - even the women." "Every single Jew in Palestine is a combatant, even the children," he said. In the Hamas Al-Aqsa TV interview, aired on October 16, 2015, Al-Yaziji further said that terror attacks "should be carried out in the very heart of the enemy - in Haifa, Jaffa, Tel Aviv, and Hadera."

Something that the institutionally anti Israel BBC will not report.

That reminds me - another Palestinian mother

Yesterday's post reminded me of some video that I have posted previously. It's of another Palestinian mother, this time one whose young son had a heart complaint and was treated free of charge in an Israeli hospital. Watch the whole video, see how she is amazed by the generosity of the Jewish people bringing presents and giving to all patients whether Jewish or Muslim but also...

Please explain how Israel can make peace with people who can have their child treated in an Israeli hospital but also say that:
"Death is natural for us, we're not afraid to die"
"It's a religious thing. It's heresy to say that Jerusalem isn't ours."
"Life is precious but not to us. We feel that life is nothing. Life isn't worth a thing. That's why we have suicide bombers. They're not afraid to die, it's natural."
"We cry out in joy and celebrate when someone becomes a shahid (martyr)"
"Life isn't precious"

An interesting claim re The Balen Report from Kais aka @revthe banker on Twitter

Yes this Twitter anti-Israel individual claims to know the Balen Report's summary. Oddly he refuses to tell me what it said.

So either he is one of the few people to have read the Balen Report or he's a liar, which do you think?

Parts of London have higher TB rates than Iraq or Rwanda per BBC News

The BBC report that parts of London now have a rate of tuberculosis infection higher than Rwanda or Iraq. The BBC report is keen to persuade is not to blame this on immigration:
'The rate of infection among UK-born Londoners has risen, while among the non-UK-born it has fallen - and the report said it would be wrong to assume TB was a disease of migrants.'
Of course rates are not measures of absolute numbers and that last section isn't saying what the BBC wants you to think that it is. 

The BBC want you to think that line says that it would be wrong to assume TB was a disease caused by immigration. Whereas it actually means that TB is no longer a disease just of migrants because it has spread.

I read that BBC report and was reminded of a report I read back in the early 2000s that said that mass immigration from Eastern Europe was bringing with it TB, a disease that had all but been eradicated from the UK. I seem to remember that claim being dismissed as racist at the time and the fuss went away, unlike the TB.
Take a look at this New Scientist report  from January this year. Here's a section that needs wider attention:
'Russia and Eastern Europe still have high rates of MDR TB today. Spiro says that many of the cases he sees in London, the TB capital of Europe, can be traced back to those countries. "The control over treatment regimes out there is dreadful," he says. "It's chaos." The number of MDR cases has been rising in England from 28 cases per year in 2000 to 81 cases in 2012.'
So do you believe the, so far as I am aware, independent New Scientist or the decidedly pro immigration BBC? The choice is yours.

Mother of Killed Palestinian Terrorist Pulls Out Knife in Interview

How is Israel ever to make peace with people like this?

French Rabbi of "Peace" Synagogue Stabbed by Muslim Terrorist Shouting "Allahu Akbar" per Frontpage Mag

Some news that you won't see reported on the institutionally anti Israel BBC.
'Rabbi Yehuda Malul Rabbi of the Bar Yochai shull in Marseille, tells Behadrey Haredim what had happened: "This is the rabbi of the synagogue Menuchat Shalom (Peaceful Rest) in the city center and one of the shul members, who were on their way to synagogue for shachris (morning prayers). Passing through downtown, they were attacked by a young man of Arab appearance".

"The young man shouted "Yahud (Jew), Allah Akbar' and attacked the rabbi with his fists while shouting 'Itbah al-Yahud' (Slaughter the Jews), and the rabbi fell to the floor. A Jew who went to the side of the rabbi tried to protect him, but the young man pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the abdomen. The Rabbi, Baruch Hashem (Thank G-d), was not hurt and continued to shul, but the Jew who was stabbed was rushed to the emergency room, where doctors said it was a real miracle, and that the knife was blocked due to the heavy coat he was wearing, and if not for the coat, the injury could have been critical."'

The Two Hundred and Eighth Weekly "No Shit Sherlock" Award

'Germany's security and intelligence agencies expressed alarm over the influx of refugees and migrants who harbor radical Islamic views and hatred of Jews, according to a Sunday report in Welt am Sonntag.

According to a security document obtained by the paper and read by top-level agency personnel, "We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples as well as a different societal and legal understanding."

The newspaper wrote that security sources warn that "the integration of hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants Germany is no longer possible in light of the number and already existing parallel societies."

The term "parallel societies" in Germany is frequently defined as insulated Muslim communities that have little or no contact with mainstream society.'

'Trojan Horse' school teachers and pupils dubbed people 'Jew boys' in anti-Semitic slurs per Birmingham Mail

'Pupils and staff at a school at the heart of the Trojan Horse scandal used anti-Semitic language as insults - dubbing people "Jew boys", it has been claimed. 

A former teacher at Park View Academy in Alum Rock said pupils daubed anti-Semitic graffiti over their notebooks, while she heard teachers and pupils alike calling people the name as a derogatory term. '

Israel, Jews, and Judaism: The entire bogus history of Palestinian Arab nationalism exposed by a stamp

Do read the whole article, you can learn a lot from a stamp, if you are willing to keep your mind open.

This is the sort of article that journalists at the institutionally anti Israel BBC should be made to read, that MPs current and past like Richard Burden, Lynn Jones and Gerald Kaufman should be questioned about when they make their claims of Palestinian sovereignty, and that every pro Palestinian/anti Israel campaigner should be made to read as well.

Benghazi Committee E-Mails: Clinton Knew 'Attack Had Nothing to Do with a Film'

Here's some news from the Benghazi Committee that won't be reported by the "Vote Hillary Clinton" BBC

'Benghazi Committee Bombshell: Clinton Knew 'Attack Had Nothing to Do with the Film'

It took two and a half hours, but Republicans members of the House Select Committee on Benghazi just dropped a bombshell on former secretary of state Hillary Clinton. In the course of his questioning of Clinton on her conduct surrounding the 2012 Benghazi attack, Ohio Republican congressman Jim Jordan revealed several new, previously overlooked e-mails indicating the Obama administration, the State Department, and Clinton herself all knew the assault was driven by al-Qaeda-linked terrorists — even while they all told the American people and the families of victims that a riot sparked by an anti-Islam YouTube video was responsible.

Palestinian-Jordanian Preschool Girl Holds Knife, Says: "I Want to Stab a Jew"

This is what brainwashing of children creates.

Not that the BBC would ever show such a piece of video.

If the Benghazi committee doesn't ask Hillary this ONE question, it's a waste of time per Allen B. West

As the Benghazi Committee runs Allen B. West has just one question that it should ask Hillary Clinton.
'As Hillary Clinton, certainly now the crowned Democrat presidential nominee, has taken the oath before the committee, there is only one question that need be asked. Here is how I would ask it, "Secretary Clinton, did you lie about the impetus behind the Benghazi terrorist attack?"
And I would not allow any typical Clintonian obfuscation. I reiterate, "Mrs. Clinton, this is a yes or no question, did you or did you not lie about the cause, the impetus behind the Benghazi terrorist attack?"

Ladies and gents, nothing else matters. Truly, if Mrs. Clinton responds "no" that she did not lie, then the American people knows she has perjured herself. If she responds "yes" then she admits she was part of a purposeful deception of the American people surrounding the abandonment and deaths of four Americans.'

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's Departing Statement Before Official Berlin Visit

Will the BBC report this?
'It is absurd. I had no intention to absolve Hitler of responsibility for his diabolical destruction of European Jewry. Hitler was responsible for the Final Solution to exterminate six million Jews. He made ​​the decision. It is equally absurd to ignore the role played by the Mufti, Haj Amin al -Husseini, a war criminal, for encouraging and urging Hitler, Ribbentropp, Himmler and others, to exterminate European Jewry. There is much evidence about this, including the testimony of Eichmann's deputy at the Nuremberg trials, not now, but after World War II. He said:
'The Mufti was instrumental in the decision to exterminate the Jews of Europe. The importance of his role must not be ignored. The Mufti repeatedly proposed to the authorities, primarily Hitler, Ribbentropp and Himmler, to exterminate the Jews of Europe. He considered it a suitable solution for the Palestinian question'.

Eichmann's deputy, added:
'The Mufti was one of the instigators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry and was a partner and adviser to Eichmann and Hitler for carrying out this plan'.

The attempt by certain scholars and people to be apologists for the key and important role of Haj Amin al-Husseini, is clear. Many other researchers cite this testimony and others regarding the role of Haj Amin al Husseini.

My intention was not to absolve Hitler of his responsibility, but rather to show that the forefathers of the Palestinian nation, without a country and without the so-called 'occupation', without land and without settlements, even then aspired to systematic incitement to exterminate the Jews.

Unfortunately, Haj Amin al-Husseini is still a revered figure in Palestinian society, he appears in textbooks and it is taught that he is one of the founding fathers of the nation, and this incitement that started then with him, inciting the murder of Jews - continues. Not in the same format, but in a different one and this is the root of the problem. To stop the murders, it is necessary to stop the incitement.

What is important is to recognize the historical facts and not ignore them, not then and not today".'

Media Bias Against Israel Exposed

Including, of course, the institutionally anti Israel BBC. #BalenReport

Teacher banned from classroom after praising Hitler on Facebook per Jewish News

'A teacher has been banned from the classroom for life after sharing a Facebook post praising Hitler.
Mahmudul Choudhury, from Tower Hamlets, was convicted of the racially aggravated offence resulting in a professional life ban. 
The 36-year old IT expert shared an image of Hitler with anti-Semitic text  in July 2014 and encouraged others to share it during Israel’s Operation Protective Edge.
The image of the Nazi dictator had the caption: “I could have killed all the Jews, but I left some of them to let you know why I was killing them… YES MAN, YOU WERE RIGHT… Share this picture to the truth a whole world.”
Choudhury added : “Yes now we could see why #ProtectiveEdge.”'

Yes it was a Muslim teacher, yes that's why you won't hear about this on the BBC.

And he blamed it on his fasting...
A question, in how many Muslim schools in the UK are teachers saying the same or similar? How would we know?

'Enough with the excuses' - It's not about Israel, it's not about Zionism, it's not about settlements, it's not about occupation; it is about hatred of Jews

'Before the partition, before Israel, before the settlements, before the ‘occupation’, before the refugees, before Sharon walked onto Temple Mount, before the ‘wall’, before immigration, before Balfour and before even Zionism itself. In the beginning there was an Arab with a knife and he murdered a Jew, simply because he was a Jew.

It is an absurd logic that attempts to blame Zionism for creating violence against Jews when Modern Zionism *only came about* because of relentless violence against Jews; both in Europe and in the Middle East. You cannot place the cart before the horse.

Enough with the excuses.'
That's the powerful end of a fascinating article at UK Media Watch.

Do read the whole article and forward it to as many anti-Israel activists, anti-Semites and BBC journalists as you can - these people need educating.

Iain Dale - Maths is not his strong point, nor apparently is apologising for making an error

Say what you like about Iain Dale, at least when he's proved wrong he admits it - doesn't he?

So will Iain Dale actually admit he's made a mathematical mistake? We'll see...

UPDATE: He's admitted his error but not to me, to someone else who commented and there's been no apology for his rather supercilous comments to me about a matter in which he was wrong.

Intersting that Iain Dale admits defeat, not that he was wrong. Also interesting that you could get a job as a financial journalist in the late 1980s with just a C in GCSE Maths.

Oddly the matter didn't end there, as one of Iain Dale's team decided to try and curry favour with his boss.

Quite tragic and very tedious? Well if getting rather irritated when a public figure tells me that I'm wrong about a fairly simple mathematical calculation is tragic and if pushing for that public figure to acknowledge their error is tedious then I am guilty of being both. Indeed I'd rather be tragic and tedious about accuracy than cavalier about the truth.

It strikes me that Iain Dale is presenting his rather tedious radio show on LBC. Maybe he'll apologise to me after that show finishes, maybe not.

Brendan O'Neill: According to the left, Israeli citizens deserve to be murdered per Jewish News

Gerald Kaufman finds the Labour Party has followed his rather disgusting lead

I expect nothing better from Gerald Kaufman but the Conservative Minister, Tobias Ellwood is misinformed. 

Mahmoud Abbas has incited attacks on Jewish Israelis with words such as:
"Al-Aqsa is ours, the Holy Sepulcher is also ours. They have no right to dirty the mosque with their filthy feet, we won't let them do it."
And also by lying about the murder of Ahmed Mansra.

Will Tobias Ellwood apologise for misleading The House?

Doctor Who - the new series - a quickie

My views of the latest series of Doctor Who are very mixed. In short I loved the first episode (The Magician's Apprentice), enjoyed the second (The Witch's Familiar) mostly for the sense of connectedness with the past that it engendered, was interested by the third (Under The Lake), tired of the fourth (Before The Flood) and was bored and irritated by the fifth (The Girl Who Died). I will put up reviews and thoughts at some future date, work must take priority over blogging at the moment, but in the meantime one squee moment on The Girl Who Died was The Doctor saying that he was "reversing the polarity of the neutron flow" - I was instantly transported back in time myself - about 40 years.

A most interesting scene in The Magician's Apprentice was when Colony Sarff (a seriously great creation) visited the planet Karn in his/its/their search for The Doctor, there he meets the Sisterhood of Karn who tell Sarff to leave and deliver the message to them. It is suggested that unknown to Sarff, the Doctor was listening. Planet Karn, the Sisterhood of Karn? You need to have watched the mini episode entitled The Night of the Doctor that preceded The two parter The Day of the Doctor. This mini episode explains the regeneration known as The War Doctor, if you haven't seen it then you should have...

Now does Planet Karn make sense? And nice to see the Ninth Doctor again.

So if the Doctor can, at least if he regenerates on Karn, have some choice as to his next regeneration's attrivutes and appearance does that go someway to explaining why the Twelth Doctor bears a surprising resemblance to Caecilius from The Fires of Pompeii? But the Eleventh Doctor regenerated into the Twelth Doctor in the TARDIS.

As an aside, note that the Sisterhood of Karn offer The Doctor the choice of "man or woman", does that mean that The Master regenerated on Karn or was his regeneration into Missy random? Either way the possibility of their being a female Doctor seems higher, that would be a mistake I feel but then I'm not in charge of Doctor Who.

MSNBC will correct their "factually wrong" graphic, but it's too late bthe damage has already been done

'MSNBC has admitted that highly controversial graphics aired on the network that depicted Israel as stealing land from the Palestinians were “factually wrong” and that the broadcast would be corrected on Monday, according to a network spokesperson.'
Read more: here

I have seen this MSNBC graphic on Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere. Usually it's been posted by ignorant or deluded anti-Israel, often actually anti-Semitic, types who were quick to jump on the original story but will ignore the retraction. MSNBC can correct their mistake today but the damage has already been done - anti-Israel feeling has been increased and along with that anti-Semitism.

Muslim Children Told How to 'Stab a Jew' During 'School Lessons'?

Lucy Aharish speaks for many

"... even if the status quo (re Al Aqsa) has been broken, which in reality is false... Even if the status quo in the Temple Mount has been broken, does that allow someone to go and murder someone else because of a scared place? Or because of religion or because a Jew went there to pray in the house of God? .... That allows for children to go out and murder innocent people? What women puts on a hijab and prays to God, takes a knife out and tries to stab innocent people?"

Lucy Aharish is an Arab Israeli news anchor who's had enough of the crap and isn't afraid to speak her mind. With views like that she'll never get a job with the institutionally anti Israel BBC.

Former BBC Chairman condemns BBC coverage on violence in Israel per Conservative Friends of Israel

Lord Grade, the former Chairman of the BBC, has written to the BBC to complain about the BBC's biased reporting of the latest events in Israel. 

'Former Chairman of the BBC, Lord Grade of Yarmouth CBE, has expressed concern about the BBC's coverage of the recent violence in Israel and the West Bank, in a letter to the organisations' Director of News and Current Affairs, James Harding.

In his complaint, Lord Grade said that the BBC coverage was at times misleading and failed to provide a wider context of what is an "undoubtedly complex issue".

Lord Grade criticised the BBC's inability "to fulfil its obligation to viewers" by not showing viewers examples of Palestinian Authority officials praising the attacks and calling for more. The former BBC Chairman underlined that Palestinian incitement, "has played an undeniable part in stoking tension recently and is an important part of the story".

The complaint was directed at a report by Orla Guerin on Sunday October 11th, about the recent wave of attacks across Israel.

Lord Grade criticised the report's apparent promotion of "equivalence between Israeli victims of terrorism and Palestinians who have been killed by Israeli security forces in the act of carrying out terror attacks".

He highlighted that: "An emotional interview is conducted with the father of a dead Palestinian youth who had been killed committing a fatal terror attack. However, the report failed to show the emotional distress caused to Israelis by any of these recent attacks. This is inexcusable".Islamic 
Lord Grade continued: "Additionally, it was improper of the correspondent to claim that "there's no sign of involvement by militant groups", before immediately showing footage of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) banners at the home of a 19 year-old terrorist who carried out a deadly knife attack at Lions Gate in Jerusalem on 3rd October. PIJ is a well-known Palestinian terror organisation and it has since claimed responsibility for the attack and praised by Hamas, another internationally proscribed terror organisation. This directly misleads viewers".'

If only there was an independent report into the BBC's reporting of the Israeli / Palestinian conflict that the BBC could use to show that they weren't and aren't biased against Israel. Maybe the BBC could reassure Lord Grade and others by releasing the Balen Report, that must have given the BBC a clean bill of health...

Some background on Orla Guerin

'In 2002, Guerin claimed she had been targeted by Israeli soldiers who, she said, deliberately shot at her during a demonstration in Bethlehem. A year later Israel boycotted the BBC after accusing her of "deep-seated bias" in her reports. Then, in 2006, during the war in Lebanon she was accused of misreporting when she claimed a town near the Israel border had been "wiped out" by Israeli forces. "I haven't seen a single building that isn't damaged in some way," she said.

But Alex Thomson, filing for Channel 4 from the same town, Bint Jbeil, on the same day, presented a different perspective. He reported that the suburbs of the town "are pretty much untouched by the Israeli attack".'
And people wonder why the BBC have kept the Balen Report secret, what did that report reveal?
More here but not in the BBC where the likes of Jeremy Bowen, Orla Guerin Yolande Knell and Lyse Doucett are given free reign.

Hold on I keep being told by pro Palestinians (really anti Jews) that Jews are immigrants to the land of Palestine

'The story began in 1898, when a wine import and marketing company was opened in London by the Rishon Lezion & Zichron Ya'acov Wine Cellars. Their British subsidiary initially traded as The Palestine Wine & Trading Co. Then the word "Palestine" was the term used for local enterprises. There were some other notable examples. The Anglo-Palestine Bank was founded and later renamed Bank Leumi, and the quality newspaper for English speakers The Palestine Post was later renamed The Jerusalem Post.

The Palestine Wine Company started marketing wines with the name Palwin, which was an abbreviation for "Palestine wine." Palwin was the first brand sold in export markets by the Israeli wine industry and is arguably the oldest wine brand still in existence in the kosher wine world.


Upon the establishment of the State of Israel, the company name was changed from Palestine Wine to the Carmel Wine Co., and the name Palwin became specifically associated with a brand of kiddush wine rather than the full portfolio.'
You can ask Adam Montefiore of Carmel Winery for information -

You could ask any passing anti Semitic scum how they reconcile their assertion that Jews are immigrants to the land of Palestine with the history above.

The BBC are sneaky as well as biased

The BBC dash to report faithfully every Palestinian claim that the Israelis are trying to change the status quo at the Temple Mount, a status quo that means that Jews cannot pray at what should be their holiest site but Muslims can stockpile weapons in the Al Aqsa mosque and spew abuse at any Jews that dare to visit the Temple Mount.

I can remember the BBC putting such news on their Middle East news page with great rapidity and often linking to this from the main BBC news page. However when Palestinian Muslims set fire to Joseph's tomb I could find no BBC report: it wasn't shown on that Middle East news page and certainly not on the main news page. Yet if I Google search I find the report here. Could it be possible that the BBC are reporting the story so they can say 'look we reported this, we're not biased' whilst deliberately not promoting the story? Are they actively trying to hide the story so as not to ruin the BBC narrative of 'Israelis evil aggressors, Palestinians good and victims'?

UPDATE: One hour later, I see that the BBC have managed to report the buring of Joseph's Tomb on their Middle East news page.

They end that report thus:
'Seven Israelis have been killed and dozens wounded.

At least 30 Palestinians, including several of the attackers, have been killed in recent violence.'
I think  that the BBC are trying to push the 'disproportionate' narrative again.

MSNBC reporter has to change his definite story when his news anchorman shows him an image that contradicts what the reporter originally said

Now imagine a BBC anchorman doing the same to one of the BBC's anti Israel 'journalists'.

OPINION - Sir Eric Pickles: ‘We deserve better reporting of these evil attacks’ per Jewish News

'... On Sunday, 11 October, correspondent Orla Guerin produced an extraordinary report on the recent wave of attacks that claimed "there's no sign of involvement by militant groups", before immediately showing footage of Palestinian Islamic Jihad banners at the home of a 19-year-old terrorist who carried out a deadly knife attack at Lions Gate in Jerusalem on 3 October.'
More good sense here at the Jewish News

the BBC explain the causes of the Temple Mount dispute in their usual biased way

Watch this piece of video, it's 1:44 long.

Shall we give Yolande Knell's report a fisking?

The opening still is of just the Muslim site with a tiny Israeli flag fluttering beneath. Could not an overhead shot that gave a better idea of scale not have been used? A shot like the one shown at 0:45?

Both the historical and the naming explanations  are given Muslim first, Jews second and the accompanying graphic has Islam above Judaism. Some might argue that the older of the two religions should be first.

Yolande Knell starts her modern history with what happened after the 6-Day war of 1967. There's no mention of the position prior to 1948 when Jews lived across Jerusalem or 1948-1967 when the eastern part of Jerusalem was occupied by the Jordanians. The only time ever in history that Jerusalem has been split was in that period 1948-1967. When the Jordanians occupied the eastern part of Jerusalem they stopped Jews from worshipping there and destroyed synagogues. Oddly this is not something that the BBC see fit to tell their viewers.

Yolande Knell tells us that Israel occupied East Jerusalem, might not the above context have been useful?

So the evil apartheid state of Israel ceded control of the holiest site in Judaism to a Jordanian Waqf and agreed to prevent Jews from praying at their holiest site. That seems odd for a country characterised by the BBC as unreasonable, aggressive and expansionary.

What naughty Jews praying at a holy site. The Muslims see Jews praying at their holiest site as provocative? Well cry me a f***ing river, I see a Muslim mosque built on top of the site of the Jewish temple as provocative.

Many Palestinians are suspicious... what a load of bullshit, The Muslims have been trying this line since the 1920s, they know that if they claim that the Jooooos are trying to do something against the Al Aqsa then they will get the support of the Muslim world and the anti-Israel (and often anti-Semitic) West too.

Spot the imagery used for the intifada section. An heroic Palestinian youth throwing a bottle (or rock) and then five Israeli soldiers and a Land Rover. The odds are just so unfair. Imagery is important, it sets the scene and that's just what is being done here.

Yolande Knell then says that 'Most of the recent attacks have been carried out by individuals acting alone'. If 'most' have been then which have not and how does Yolande Knell know that most have not been? Has she not seen the videos encouraging such attacks put out by Fatah and Hamas?

Whilst Yolande Knell wonders what the current situation will become a split screen is shown again. On the left religious Jewish men, maybe praying, on the right weeping Muslim women - once again the image is more important than the words and the BBC know that.

Jews are being killed simply for being Jews

'... what we are seeing is not about religious rights or land. It is about the same old issue. This is the issue that people least want to discuss but which most needs to be discussed. The excuse may change with the passing years. But the reality is that, be it 1921, 1929, 1936 or 2015, Jews are being murdered simply for being Jews.'
More here but not on the institutionally anti Israel BBC whose biased reporting on Israel is helping to fan the flames of anti Semitism in the UK and beyond.

On the streets of Israel today - Warning very graphic violence

A Palestinian rams his car into pedestrians and then attacks the wounded with an axe.
I wonder if Jeremy Corbyn will condemn this behaviour or not.

Three Israelis killed in Jerusalem attacks per BBC News

The BBC report on the latest Islamist terrorist attacks on Jews in Jerusalem includes the line that:
'The militant Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which dominates the Gaza Strip, praised the "heroic operations in Jerusalem and greets the heroes who carried them out".'
That's the 'friends' of Jeremy Corbyn speaking again. 

Will Jeremy Corbyn condemn Hamas or even comment on what's happening in Jerusalem, or is that unlikely as he apparently couldn't even bring himself to say the word Israel at the Labour Party Friends of Israel event at the Labour Party Conference this year.

Fatah officials: Killing “settlers” is legal and "national duty" - PMW Bulletins

Pal Watch has plenty of evidence that Fatah officials approve and encourage the killing of Israeli Jews. Here's a recent example
'PLO Executive Committee member Mahmoud Ismail, said that the killing of Naama and Eitam Henkin in their car in front of their four children was not merely legal but was fulfilling Palestinian "national duty." [Official PA TV, Oct. 6, 2015]'
More here but not on the BBC where supporting and protecting the 'Palestinian people' whilst vilifying the world's only majority Jewish state appears to be policy.

North Korea holds huge parades for 70th anniversary per BBC News

The BBC report on North Korea's 70th anniversary celebrations without mentioning the lack of freedom, the reeducation camps and the extra judicial killings of its citizens that the North Korean communist regime carries out. 

Do the BBC actually approve of the North Korean communist regime?

Orla Guerin - incompetent or deliberately offensive

The BBC's Orla Guerin presented another biased piece of reporting on the BBC News tonight. 

What was breathtaking was her statement that the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is sacred to both Muslims and Jews. Is this woman ignorant or being deliberately offensive? 

The Al Aqsa Mosque is not sacred to Jews. Part of the site of the mosque is built over the ruins of the Jewish Temple and so is the holiest site in Judaism. Of course the Israeli government stupidly prevents Jews from worshipping at their holiest site but allows Muslims to a) worship there and b) scream abuse at any Jew who dares to visit the site. Jews are actually prevented by Israeli police from saying any prayers at the holiest site in Judaism but it's Israel that's seen as victimising non Muslims.

I will be complaining to the BBC about this Orla Guerin report, I wonder what crock of shit response I'll get. 

Complaint lodged:

On tonight's News At Ten, Orla Guerin presented a report on the situation in Israel. During this report she said that Jerusalem's Al Aqsa mosque was sacred to both Muslims and Jews. This is factually incorect and offensive to Jews.

The Al Aqsa mosque is built on top of the site where the Jewish Temples stood before being destroyed. The site is the holiest site in Judaism but the Al Aqsa mosque itself is not sacred to Jews, it is rather is a symbol of Islamic invasion and dominance over Judaism right in the heart of the Jewish capital.

Jews are not allowed to pray on their holiest site. Israeli police stop them from doing so and Muslim Arab women are paid to spew abuse at Jews who try to visit the site, not enter the mosque just visit the Temple Mount,

Was Orla Guerin's statement the result of ignorance, in which case she should learn about the history of the region before reporting on it again, or was it just symptomatic of the BBC's anti-Israel bias?

ICC Finds Stabbing Random Jews Legal Under International Law

'The Hague, Netherlands, October 7 - The International Criminal Court formalized today what many analysts have long assumed to be accepted International Law, ruling that the stabbing of Jews is a legitimate and legal act when undertaken to express political, social, economic, philosophical, religious, ethnic, or personal grievances.'
Satire? Or believable?

Human Relief Foundation considers cutting off aid for the Calais ‘Jungle’ per Daily Mail Online

The Daily Mail yesterday had this report that oddly has still not made it to the BBC's news reporting. Maybe the BBC only cover The Mail's reports when they involve a Conservative Prime Minister and porcine rumours. 

'The Bradford-based Human Relief Foundation has been running a project to help the 'refugees' at the makeshift camp and previously claimed they were all 'fleeing war and significant atrocities.'

But a visit by a team led by Kassim Tokan, the HRF deputy chief executive, discovered a totally different picture on the ground, with unwanted clothing and food being 'dumped and burnt' by the migrants.

The organisation had been running a project  to help the 'refugees' at the makeshift camp and previously claimed they were all 'fleeing war and significant atrocities

Instead of vulnerable families fighting for survival he found the camp – dubbed the Jungle – was '95 to 97 per cent' adult men.'

95%+ adult men, well that doesn't match with the BBC's coverage does it. There's a narrative to spread so I doubt that the BBC will go anywhere near this news.

Jewish Israelis killed in Israel by Palestinian terrorists and the terrorists make a video to commemorate the murders

I wonder if Jeremy Corbyn has any comment to make about the actions of his 'friends', tricky as he can't even say the word Israel at the Labour Party Friends of Israel event at the Labour Party Conference.

The best Prime Minister we never had?

The eulogies for Denis Healey do slightly grate on me. I remember him as Chancellor of the Exchequer and his performance was as dismal as most Labour Chancellors. I wonder if people are remembering him only by the 'eyebrows' and the Mike Yarwood impression.

In reality Denis Healey had been a member of the Communist Party.  Had imposed high tax rates on 'the rich', not quite until until the pips squeaked. All but bankrupted the country with excessive public sector spending and general ineptitude.  Had to run to the IMF to bail out the Country.

A good question would be why an ex Communist Party member cancelled the BAC TSR2 , the best plane that the RAF never received. And why he cancelled the Royal Navy's new aircraft carrier too. 

Why did Denis Healey diminish the UK's ability to defend itself from any possible Soviet aggression?

I can see why his actions both economic and otherwise might endear him to the anti British BBC but some of us are able to remember what happened, without the benefit of the BBC's attempts at educating us.


As I listen to the BBC interview Conservatives including the Prime Minister, I do wonder why the Conservatives don't reply:

Excuse me Evan/John/ANO,
You keep saying that people are unhappy, that the country doesn't support these policies, but less than six months ago the Conservative Party won a General Election with an overall majority. If the Labour Party had cobbled together a coalition you'd be happy with that representing the country, so why not now? Are you biased against the Conservative Party?

Then there are the people that the BBC invite to criticise Conservative announcements. Such as Dr Liz McKenzie from Class War. By all means let her speak but couldn't the BBC point out that she stood in the General Election against the 'evil' Iain Duncan Smith and received 53 votes. The 'evil' Iain Duncan Smith received 20,999 votes. Receiving 53 votes hardly points to being the representative of the majority, does it?

Some of Jeremy Corbyn's 'friends' inciting the murderous stabbing of Israeli Jews

That's a Hamas video, will Jeremy Corbyn condemn it? Or would he consider that being rude to 'friends'?

What if Barack Hussein Obama isn't inept, what if he knows exactly what he's doing?

What if Barack Hussein Obama isn't inept, what if he knows exactly what he's doing?

Do you remember the so called 'Obama open mic slip':
"After my election I have more flexibility"
Maybe Barack Hussein Obama's seeming incompetence with regards to foreign policy, an example being the way Russia has been given all but a free hand in Syria, isn't all it seems...

Watch this and wonder... 

John Whittingdale: BBC to lose power to address claims of political bias per The Guardian

The Guardian, the closest thing there is to a BBC house newspaper, reports that:

'John Whittingdale, the UK culture secretary, has confirmed that the BBC will be stripped of its power to adjudicate on allegations of political bias in its coverage.

Speaking at the Conservative party conference in Manchester, he said the public should have confidence that complaints are examined independently and carefully. He said it must no longer be the case "that if you make a complaint against the BBC, the decision on whether it is justified is taken by the BBC".'

As someone who has had a couple or more complaints of BBC bias dismissed by the BBC Trust, I welcome this step in the right direction. I'm fed-up with being told that the BBC got it about right and that's the end of it. 

Hopefully a properly independent body would be willing to find against the BBC and require the BBC to make an apology that is equally prominent as the original story.

However two things strike me, first that the original bias will have had its effect long before the BBC is found to have been biased and so a stinging financial penalty is needed to ensure that the BBC doesn't just carry on with its biased reporting. I suggest a sliding scale of fines, from 1% of the licence fee upwards, depending upon the seriousness of the bias. These fines to be deducted from the next year's licence fee or paid to the BBC's rivals. That should concentrate the BBC to avoid any bias in their reporting.

The second thing is to define political bias. This has to include tackling the BBC's institutional anti Israel bias that is helping to create the rise in anti Semitism in the UK. Maybe a future complaint to the new body of BBC anti Israel bias could result in the publication of the Balen Report which the BBC has been so desperate to keep secret for so long. 

Theresa May: High immigration levels prevent 'cohesive society' per BBC News

Two sentences from this BBC report struck me:

'Net migration rose by 50% to 318,000 last year - with sharp increases from inside and outside the EU.

A total of 641,000 people moved to the UK in 2014, according to the Office for National Statistics.'

641,000 people moving to the UK last year, that's more than the population of Bristol. In fact that number of people would constitute the 11th largest urban area in the UK.

When the Labour Party leadership support insurrection, this is the result

Maureen Lipman right on the money about the questionable Jeremy Corbyn

'... A man who sups with the devil but claims no one told him that the horned, red-skinned man at the table was, in fact, the actual devil.'

... Corbyn had addressed a party conference meeting of Labour Friends of Israel last week without once actually saying the name of the country.

She listed a series of 'conspiracy theorists' Corbyn had met with, including 'the Rev Stephen Sizer and the anti-Semites Paul Eisen and Gilad Atzmon.'

Mrs Lipman then added: 'I would be grateful for any evidence that he has ever objected to the anti-Semitic rantings of these "colleagues" or stated his own belief in the legitimacy of the Jewish state.

'If he is not anti-Semitic himself then he is more than happy to consort with those who are.''

She's right  isn't she?

Government to introduce rules to stop 'political' boycotts per BBC News

The boycotts are of Israel, not North Korea, Saudi Arabia or any other despotic state. Always Israel, is it because it is the only Jewish majority state? 

With Jeremy Corbyn leading the Labour Party and an institutionally anti Israel BBC, the Conservatives are on shaky ground here.

The Goal of Muslim Immigration According to Muhammad's Teachings

A fascinating article, do read it all... but beware mentioning it on the BBC, where every immigrant, especially the Muslim ones is a peace loving professional just aching to integrate. 

'Migration cannot be ended as long as there is kufr (unbelief) or as long as there is an enemy that resists" [2] 

Later Muhammad developed this idea, saying:

"Migration will continue until the sun rises from the West. Hijrah would not be stopped until repentance is cut off, and repentance will not be cut off until the sun rises from the West"[3]
So immigration can end only when a community or a country has been won over, and the conquest has been achieved. But Jihad does not end until all the world is Islamic, and Muslims should not stop until Islam dominates the world. '
If this article is correct then we have been warned.

Michael Foster, the man who heckled Jeremy Corbyn for not being able to utter the word Israel at the Labour Party Friends of Israel event on BBC Daily Politics

There are some obvious conclusions to draw here about Jeremy Corbyn, but the institutionally anti Israel BBC will not do so.

Will Jeremy Corbyn criticise a representative of his 'friends' Hamas for this?

IDF (@IDFSpokesperson) tweeted at 9:36 PM on Thu, Oct 01, 2015:
Hamas spokesperson Husam Badran refers to the killing of parents in front of their 4 children as "heroic operation"

Will Jeremy Corbyn criticise the representative of his 'friends' in Hamas? Or more likely will he just show his inability to criticise terrorists or say the word Israel?

BBC News revert to type on reporting about Jerusalem

This BBC report on two Israeli Jews murdered by Palestinians has reverted to the BBC's preferred lie about Jerusalem:
'Tensions have been particularly high in recent weeks over the long-running issue of access to the al-Aqsa mosque compound in East Jerusalem.

Al-Aqsa is one of Islam's holiest sites and is in the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif site also revered by Jews.'
The Temple Mount site is the holiest site in Judaism as the BBC started to acknowledge recently after pressure from me and others. It's odd that they have reverted to their old ways. 

Maybe the BBC could explain to its audience how the holiest site in Judaism not only has a mosque on it but also is somewhere where Jews are banned from worshipping, even in secret.

The BBC is institutionally anti Israel and that shows time and time again.

Diesel cars are 'killing people', says former Labour minister per BBC News

This BBC report is a masterpiece of BBC think. I can picture a modern day Winston Smith consulting a guide to see what he can say and what he can't.

'Tony Blair's Labour government made a mistake in promoting diesel cars as they are now "killing people", former science minister Lord Drayson has said.'

Nice differentiation of Tony Blair's Labour government from a real Labour government.

'In 2001, the then Chancellor Gordon Brown introduced lower vehicle tax for diesel cars, on the grounds that they were less polluting.'

That these grounds were fallacious and many said so at the time is not relevant.

'That tax break remains in place today.'

Nicely casting equal blame on the Conservatives.
