Direct Bias Shown on BBC on Flotilla Crime

PRC Action Alert – The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) expressed its deep apprehension and anger over the BBC coverage regarding freedom Flotilla. The Freedom Flotilla which is a mere humanitarian mission has been covered by a wide range of western media outlets in the last few days. The BBC started to speak about the Boats of the flotilla only in the last 2 days.

In most of its coverage BBC depended on Israeli sources whilst the Palestinian side has been ignored. PRC suggests that such coverage harm the image of BBC and could classify it as an alternative for some Israeli media outlets. PRC and part of its day-to-day monitoring for BBC observed the following:

On one of its today’s article BBC gave a space for the Israeli side while it has ignored the Palestinian side. The official account of Israel though, Danny Ayalon, Israeli deputy foreign minister was presented, which stated that organizers’ intent was violent. The article mentioned that ‘Guns and knives’ were used by the civilian passengers.

The great exposure of Israeli account continued on the BBC breakfast (BBC TV) and its running news casts. Spokespersons and Israeli officials were given a chance to justify the Israeli attack. BBC reporters in Israel also contribute to this dilemma as they only speak out what they get from the official Israeli sources.


PRC call on BBC to stand neutral and give up its routine policies of quickly admitting and giving a space for the Israeli narrative. The centre puts the facts ahead to the BBC that Israel announced its intent to attack these boats a few days ago. This gives us a direct and clear-cut massage that Israel will be inventing propaganda and lies to cover up its crime today.

BBC should give more focus on the other side of the story which is the massive scale of the victims, the legality of this attack which happened in the international waters. BBC should investigate the last Israeli positions over the past week and compare it with what happened today. People in the UK, and elsewhere who watch the BBC aspire found non bias accounts and true stories. But, sadly what’s being going on BBC is one sided and reach the degree of flagrant bias.

With so many different sources of information from governments to NGOs, the BBC finds it morally and journalistically appropriate to provide justifications of the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) for its unprovoked crime. The BBC is alone in quoting the IDF that the Flotilla had violent intentions and humanitarian personnel on board were carrying knives, guns and fired shots.

The BBC thinks it’s an impartial organizations, in fact it has shown that it’s a mouth piece for the IDFs crimes. The BBC should recognize that an impartial position at this early stage would have been to simply state the facts as accepted by the international community and not provide justifications for the killings of 19 innocent civilians.

BBC spokesperson, told PRC that, ‘We are unable to respond as we have not been given the courtesy of detailed evidence of any accusation.’ However, PRC told the spokesperson of the above mentioned coverage and the time of the news casts.

PRC call on activists, journalists to protest against the BBC performance. File a complaint against BBC: 03700100222 or by web feedback.

    BBC = Big Brother Communications

    This is no surprise but none of these propaganda organs is taken seriously by most people anymore.

  • No surprise at BBC actions. The British government works for the “defender of the faith”. The faith is the holy bible and the old testament is shared by Christians and Jews. The truth is that there is abundant information to show that the bible is false.
    The Jews are not the chosen people and they have no right to Israel or any other part of the planet based on religious grounds.
    The stories of the bible can be shown in much earlier traditions. The flood is one example where the story has been taken from Babylon.
    Christianity has Jesus copying the words of Confucius and Buddha, among others.
    Only when we break the curse of ignorance about religion can we end wars. But there are many who rely on the masses remaining ignorant about the truth of religion and these people need to protect each other or the game is over.

    You don’t understand, and I am being serious here, the BBC is part of the Israeli propaganda arm. Just look at the executives over the years.

  • UK Bloke

    Ok, lets name names. BBC Israeli correspondent Julain Manyon was falling over himself to try and play down this savage and barbaric act of terrorism.

    I think it is unfair to blanket blame across the BBC. You should name names, such I have as it is these stategically placed individuals who are doing all the work of promoting propaganda and falsehoods.

    The rest are simply ‘jobsworths’ who are under the management of certain individuals, who just happen to have ties and racial connections to Jews and Israel.

    The only guns used were by (or taken from) Israelite soldiers …. all semantic peoples should be banned from civilized places …. they always cause the rest of us more trouble then they are worth.

    Of course, the right of a jailer to secure his jail and control both the prisoners and their visitors is well accepted in most societies and make no mistake about it … Israel is the jailer.

    The US and Israel are touted as “allies” …. where are their Israelite allies in Afghanistan or anywhere else and stop and ask how many Israelites have died for America?

    Fiddle … It has been well said that: “I shall meet today ungrateful, violent, treacherous, envious, uncharitable men.” Yes, indeed, but to avoid the stupid ones at home in so-called ‘news’ organizations … that is becoming more difficult!

    BBC, ABC(x’s2), CBC, NBC, CBS and the rest …. are you paying attention?

  • Lawrence

    The BBC also labels the people on the flotilla ‘Activists’ which is open to interpretaion, and ‘Pro-Palestinian Activists’ which makes them sound like terrorists. People who deliver aid should not be described in political terms. What this language means is that if you believe in giving aid to Palestian kids then you are ‘Pro-Palestinian’. I’m neither pro one side or the other but I support giving aid to suffering people. Nobody would ever call the Red Cross ‘Activists’ or pro anyone. The BBC is staffed by Jews and members of Common Purpose, a secret organisation that takes orders from the globalist cabal called the Trilateral Commission.

  • Eugene

    The BBC called the people on the flotilla ‘Pro-Palestinian Activists’ which makes them sound like terrorists. The Red Cross need to take care who they give aid to or the BBC (now run by the secret organisation Common Purpose) may start accusing them of political motivation.

  • Those who massacre people have no qualms when it comes to language. So they massacre language and truth. The muscle behind Israel are the Rothschilds, Windsors, and the other rich royal families of Europe who largely make up the Illuminati. Can’t get rid of one without getting rid of the other. Boycott the rich. When they need you as a human prop when they parade themselves around, just don’t go. When they want bullet stoppers for their wars, don’t go. When they want customers, don’t buy, or buy second hand. Don’t cooperate. Shun their banks as much as possible. Ditch the car whenever you can. Do without as far as possible. Don’t participate. Don’t listen to their BBC or other stations. Don’t buy their papers. Start creating alternate institutions and shun everything big and tied to their octopus corporations. Boycott them all. Take back your power.

    When will the world wake up to the fact that BBC is yet another propaganda organisation, that has been taking advantage of the ordinary run of the mill punters’ ignorance, whom have been trained to trust the half truths spewed by it as “impartial”, analysis.

    Fact is there is no impartiality in an organisation, that gets part of its funding from the British and common wealth foreign office, and is stuffed to the rafters with Hasbara (Israeli propagandists) merchants, and is prone to divining news from afar (either reliant on the spokespersons of the Israeli Aggression Forces, and or deploying the chappy who sits in London and divines news about Tehran) based on the proclivities of the powers that be, and the imperatives of the moment.

    Let us face it, it is time, we learnt to accept that BBC is not worth the electrons inconvenience and or the electricity used to get bombarded by its propaganda. Then we all can unmask it, and tare its almost flimsy façade of “respectability”, trouble with most people is they try and change or modify the behaviour of liars, whom always invariably only resort to better methods of lying. Fact is liars are; not to be trusted, and or paid any attention to, is the only method of dealing with liars, and crooks.

That is how they force us against our will to support their diabolical war on us all, to kill us first with their lies and later with their vaccines GMO’s and bullets.

    All the media is involved. The Bill Moyers & William Black investigative news articles starting in April 09 point out that the news media has been cheerleaders & coverup artists for the corporations, wallstreet, banksters & the corrupt politicans of both parties.

  • Justice must be called for and truth be told and when any news reporting does not do this, they must be denounced as propagandist swill. The BBC must be called to account.

    As always, Ms. Salam, thank you for the brave and forthright journalism. You hold the standard up where it must be held. God bless you.

    After 35 years of devotion to BBC World Service (I’m expat,) I’m regrettably forced to conclude that the BBC is a propaganda organization, and has been for many years. I strongly suspect under Zionist control.

    I’ve been “taken in” for too many years.

    IT’S IN OUR FACES NOW. With no sign of diffidence, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency recently published the feature article, “Welcome To Obama’s Jewish America.”

    Celebrating the first-ever Jewish America Heritage Month event at the White House on May 27, 2010, Obama let it be known that Jews have “immeasurably enriched our national culture” and that “Jewish Americans have maintained their own unique identity.”

    Obama is certainly correct in his latter remark that American Jews have “maintained their unique identity.” For in their refusal to enter the great “American Melting Pot, ” (a concept which Jews themselves advanced so as to dilute a Gentile racial face in America), American Jewry remains distinctly pitted against the only force that could ever oppose their “unique identity” agenda, a White Christian power bloc.

    But whether or not the Jews have “immeasurably enriched our national culture” is open to fierce debate. For in their litigations and media campaigns to annihilate Christianity—and instead, to impose perversion of every depraved kind—proves the opposite of Obama’s pandering avowal.

    The month of May is traditionally set apart to celebrate Memorial Day, conferring special honor on America’s Christian war dead. But this national holiday month has been usurped by American Jewish Heritage Month, now to be officially observed by all American citizens, even though Jews make up only 1.7% of the population.

    Yes, it’s official! The Jew, Rep Deborah Wasserman, passed House Resolution 315 in 2006 to please her Jewish power brokers, certainly not representing her constituency, foisting upon all Americans the observance of this new national “Jew” holiday. For what purpose? For the sole aim of exalting the Jewish race to the exclusion of 98.3% of the rest of the American population who are NOT Jewish and have no desire for things Jewish.

    Lamentably, and to America’s continual cultural degradation by organized Jewry, alongside of the Congressional Resolution is a White House Proclamation and a de facto unification of synagogue & state.

    It is to be specifically noted — under intense Jewish pressure — Obama omitted in his White House Proclamation, the traditional formulaic phrase attached to dates on government documents: “In the year of our Lord.”

    Instead, the final paragraph refers merely to the “thirtieth day of April, in the year two thousand ten.” Indeed, the “Jewification” of America is now complete.

    JEWISH LIES
    FROM THE WHITE HOUSE

    TOPPING THE LIST OF ‘INVITES’ to Obama’s first-ever Jewish American Heritage Month celebration at the White House last week, was Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an abortionist and civil rights adversary.

    Eagerly awaiting her co-religionist, fellow leftist and despiser of the US Constitution, Elena Kagan, to join her and Justice Stephen Breyer at the Supreme Court, so as to comprise what Pat Buchanan cites as a disproportionate 33% of Jews on the highest judicial bench of the country, Ginsberg nodded in approval when Obama announce
    d from the podium that he and Sandy Koufax, (also a guest), “are both lefties.

    Yes the BBC has taken the place of Pravada, as the place to go to get the “offical” version, rather than the truth.

  • allan fairbairn

    bibbi deserves the iron cross

  • Mark Gobell

    That’s why some good citizens of the UK who are compelled to pay an annual fee of 145 pounds for a licence to watch the BBC’s propaganda, on pain of a fine of up to 1000 pounds plus costs, prefer to call it the BiBiC instead.
