Qatar abolishes controversial 'kafala' labour system per BBC News

Reading this short BBC report on the system of kafala in Qatar I was struck by the lack of anger in it, the lack of moralising about the evils of slavery. After all the USA is still demonised by parts of the BBC as having operated a system of slavery.

Then I wondered how different the BBC would be if it was Israel that operated a system of slavery now.

Then I realised that when you're an organisation that is institutionally anti Israel and pro Islam why would anyone expect you to be unbiased in your reporting.
