Truly Shameful BBC Israeli Propaganda

By Craig Murray | June 25, 2020

In a genuinely outrageous piece of victim blaming, BBC News just blamed Palestinian intransigence in refusing to accept Israeli annexation of the West Bank for the deaths of Palestinian children caused by the Israeli blockade of medical supplies to Gaza.

This is a precise quote from the BBC TV News presenter headline at 10.30am:

“The lives of hundreds of sick Palestinian children are being put at risk because of the latest downturn in relations between their leaders and Israel last month. The Palestinian President said his government was giving up on past peace agreements because of Israeli plans to annex parts of the West Bank. That decision stopped co-operation on many security and civil matters including medical and travel permits.”

There followed a heart rending piece by BBC Middle East correspondent Yolande Knell featuring Palestinian children in Gaza dying of various medical conditions and their distraught mothers.

The entire piece very plainly blamed Palestinian officials for the situation.

The BBC did not blame Israel for placing a blockade illegally preventing pharmaceuticals and medical supplies from entering Gaza – the basic reason the children cannot be treated at home.

The BBC did not blame Israel for blockading in illegally the civilian population of Gaza, so that these children cannot freely leave for treatment in Europe without Israeli clearance.

The BBC did not point out that the proposed annexation of the West Bank is illegal, has been condemned by the UN Secretary General and by 95% of the governments of the world, and will precipitate great violence.

No, the BBC blamed the Palestinians.

“Accept the illegal annexation of still more of your land, or small children will die and it will be your fault”.

That is a line the BBC are perfectly happy to push out on behalf of Israel. It is an astonishing moment for the UK state propagandist. It is important we do not ourselves become complacent at this absolutely unacceptable behaviour.

  1. Thank you for this precise observation of biased and heartless BBC propaganda (what we call the B’nai Brit Cabal) in genuflection to Israel’s ruthless dictatorship surpassing brutalities, prejudices, crimes of all others in recent history. In case you haven’t already sent this to the patsy organisation, we will.

  2. The Jewish Lobby in Britain has enormous power within the British Parliament(and the Media). The City of London(a square mile) in the centre of London has actually been excised from Great Britain itself and is owned and operated by Jewish Bankers(It is actually named “The Corporation of the City of London”) and even the Queen of England has to get permission to enter.
    So, their power within Britain extends also to the BBC, which was important in pushing the Propaganda about Saddam Hussein’s “Weapons of Mass Destruction(under Tony Blair’s period as PM.)

    They’ve got all angles covered.

  3. Yes, you add a powerful and little known point about the Corp. of the City of London, Brian. And of course their manipulation of politicians like Blair and Hoon with the aid of Attorney-General Goldsmith to remove Saddam and destroy Iraq’s capacity to challenge the crimes Israel persists in committing, stealing more and more of Palestine for their bolt-hole. A shameful blot on the history of Humanity which will one day want to pull it down!

    • AND, as an ultimate insult, Tony Blair was named as “Middle East Peace Envoy” after he was removed from power in Britain. You couldn’t find a more unsuitable “Peace Envoy” if you tried…..AND, how much peace did he achieve? As far as I can see, the Middle East is a hate filled blot on Planet Earth.
